    The Theory of Everything Review
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    I imagine one of the most difficult challenges for a writer and filmmaker must be finding a way to make a story interesting when everyone already knows the ending. In The Theory of Everything, we know that Stephen Hawking doesn’t die after two years. We know that he ends up becoming a highly-respected theoretical physicist. Even those […]

    Horrible Bosses 2 Review
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    “I think we really hit our stride with kidnapping,” Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) comments to Dale (Charlie Day) about halfway through Horrible Bosses 2. The observation definitely doesn’t reflect what’s going on in the film—the trio of irreverent goofballs Kurt, Nick and Dale are just as terrible at crime in this movie as they were in […]

    Star Wars: The Internet Awakens
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    If there is one word I would use to describe the Star Wars: Episode VII teaser trailer, it would be tense. From the first moment of the first shot, the viewer is filled with questions, none of which are completely  answered. We’re sitting in front of our computer screens pulling our hair and screaming, “It’s […]

    Interstellar Review
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    When I watched the first teaser for Interstellar,  I teared up at the sheer epicness of it. I knew at that point that I’d be counting down the days until Christopher Nolan’s space flick hit the big screen. Still, with as high as my expectations were coming into the film, I never thought that they would be exceeded in […]

    Nightcrawler Review
    Posted in: Movies

    I have to admit that while watching, I wished I could be so bold. There is a scene about three-fourths of the way into Dan Gilroy’s suspense thriller Nightcrawler during which the film’s protagonist, intensely ambitious video producer Lou Bloom, outlines his demands to his rather taken-aback supervisor. Taken out of context, the monologue essentially represents […]

    Big Hero 6 Review
    Posted in: Movies

    After you’ve seen Interstellar and you begin to question your existence and the future of humanity, you should go see Big Hero 6. It will make you feel better. I promise. True to animated Disney movie form, the film begins with a story of loss for its hero – whose name is Hiro, oddly enough […]

    Calvin’s Cinema
    Posted in: Comics, Featured, Movies

    Life is all a big performance for Calvin, with everything he does being bigger in his mind than it really is. That makes him the perfect subject to take on some of the best lines from some of the most iconic films of all time. Some of the lines featured on this page will be […]

    Who Is Doctor Strange?
    Posted in: Comics, Featured, Movies

    Who is Doctor Stephen Strange? An arrogant neurosurgeon. A tortured soul. The sorcerer supreme. Most importantly for us, he is Benedict Cumberbatch… hopefully. There is still no official announcement from Marvel and hopefully this casting doesn’t go the way of Joaquin Phoenix, but as of now, the fantastically named Englishman will take the reins. Marvel’s […]

    NerdGlow’s Netflix Recommendations Pt. 7
    Posted in: Movies, TV

    Walking Dead – Season 4 From Jackson Lewis Compared to the rest of the series up to this point, season four of The Walking Dead is largely disappointing. The first five episodes are clearly filler, and many episodes afterwards serve little purpose other than exposition or portraits of characters that the audience has little reason […]

    A Few Star Wars Tropes Disney Should Avoid
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    As world shattering to pop culture and storytelling as the original Star Wars trilogy was, the movies were not without their flaws. None of the pronunciations of planets or species were consistent. The worst actors in A New Hope were the Stormtroopers. They weren’t even actors! They were voiced by disk jockeys across the street […]
