Can Underwater Rise Up to Expectations?

Available online Now.

Initial release: January 8, 2020
Director: William Eubank
Box office: $40.9 million
Budget: 65 million USD

Get your Popcorn ready, Underwater movie review up next, everyone who’s seen the trailer want’s to know if it’s as good as the trailer made it seem. Short Answer is No. Honestly I had my hopes up for this movie, I typically love sci-fi style movies, but this one just missed the mark. I love the story idea but everything seems rushed. This movie had potential but the screenplay was terrible, not really worth watching. There wasn’t enough time in the movie to connect with anyone in the movie. There were some cool scenes but they were just meh.

I give this a Nerdy Popcorn review 3.3/10. I can’t figure out one scenario in which this movie would be fun to watch.

Oscar Alert: Will Sam Mendes win Best Director for 1917?

“Anyone who appreciates cinema should see this movie, any casual movie lovers should also see this movie, as a matter of fact everyone should see this movie.”
-NerdyPopcorn

Colin Firth

Sam Mendes is at the top of the list for the Oscar for best director, if he wins it’ll best his second, he won at the 72nd Academy Awards for his first major motion picture, American Beauty. Since then he has Directed numerous big budget movies, none of the were met with the same critical acclaim, however, 1917 has. 21 years after his first win Mendes, who still shoot movies on film instead of digital, is taking us on the journey of a pair of British servicemen tasked with delivering a message in the middle of battle.

The cinematography is beautiful, the flow of the camera as it follows the character is flawless , even if you don’t like war movies you’ll be mesmerized by the camera work. The movie has a beautiful amount of tension, which is a result of the music, done by Thomas Newman, whose resume also includes American Beauty. What I absolutely love about this movie is that you could never guess what happens next, Mendes does a fantastic job capturing the uncertainty of war, which gives you a sense of dread as you watch the story unfold.

The two lead actors are virtually unknown, but Mendes accounts for this by surrounding them with Hollywood royalty, within the first 15 minutes you’ll see appearances by Colin Firth and Andrea Scott, brief but strong performances by both. 1917 is a perfect example of what can be achieved when you have some of the best in the world behind the scenes, the acting was fabulous, but what makes this story special is the collaboration between director/writer, cinematography, music, and photography.

This movie will win both Best Picture and Best Director. Entertainment value is through the roof, minimal slow and drawn out parts, and never a dull moment. Anyone who appreciates cinema should see this movie, any casual movie lovers should also see this movie, as a matter of fact everyone should see this movie.

Nerdy Trailer Alert: We finally get a look at Venom in the New trailer! Click for Trailer and Release Date

The new trailer for Sony’s Venom movie is out, and it corrects the first trailer’s mistake by actually having Venom in it. Quite a lot of Venom, actually, to the point where I might suggest staying away if you’re spoiler-averse. For everyone else, you’ll get to see Tom Hardy’s Eddie Brock coming to terms with the new powers bestowed upon him by the symbiote and using them to predictably violent effect.

Venom is out October 5th. Official Movie Poster:

Nerdy Reviews: “A Quiet Place” Don’t Eat Popcorn, Don’t Sip your Drink, Better Yet Don’t Move, Just Watch.

The hype surrounding “A Quiet Place” has been tremendous, the marketing machine behind this movie certainly accomplished it’s task of generating buzz. The trailers were mysterious and compelling, and I immediately marked this down as I movie I needed to see.

A-Quiet-Place-1000x520

I have never been much of a scary movie in theater’s kind of guy but based on the reviews, I bit my lip, and decided to buy my ticket.

The movie establishes the importance of silence very early on and it assures you that, even without the spoken word, you will bond with the character’s emotionally.

As the story move’s forward it begins to delve into the day to day life in this new world. It seems the whole point of this portion of the movie is to reaffirm the importance of silence, ultimately preparing the viewers for what’s coming next. The only way to properly communicate this portion of the movie is – the deafening silence will leave you clenching your armrest in anticipation for what’s next.

maxresdefault

There is one climactic moment that puts into motion the events that will forever change the Abbot’s family lives. Once this happens the whole movie takes a turn and it becomes a incredibly stressful, suspenseful, and thrilling roller coaster of emotions.

I wouldn’t go as far as saying this movie is the scariest movie I’ve ever seen but it is by far the most stressful, John Krasinski did a excellent job of leaving you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. I felt physically drained after this movie.

a-quiet-place-1000x489

This movie tops my list as one of the best thrillers I’ve ever seen, the cinematography, the dialogue (Or lack their of), and just about every aspect of the film meshed together beautifully to make a masterpiece of modern thriller cinema.

The acting was incredible, John and Emily were perfect together and the Kids, Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds showed the emotionally  range of seasoned Hollywood Veterans.

Well done John and cast, Well done.

John Krasinski’s​ 5 Favorite Movies & Why he Loves them!

In light of the recent release of filmmaker/actor John Krasinski’s movie “The Quiet Place”, we managed to track down 5 of John’s favourite movies and why he loves them.

If you’re anxious to see more of John, filming of his new Amazon TV Series Jack Ryan is scheduled to premiere this August.

Kramer Vs. Kramer (1979)

Ted Kramer’s wife leaves her husband, allowing for a lost bond to be rediscovered between Ted and his son, Billy. But a heated custody battle ensues over the divorced couple’s son, deepening the wounds left by the separation.

Director: Robert Benton

Writers: Avery Corman (from the novel by), Robert Benton (written for the screen by)

Stars: Dustin Hoffman, Meryl Streep, Jane Alexander

John on why he loves this movie:

I was one of those kids who had never seen an indie film before I got to college.

If it wasn’t a big, huge tentpole movie, or if it wasn’t on the radio, I hadn’t

experienced it. Then in college, I started getting into independent movies, which

led me to classic movies, which led me to all this different stuff. The 1970s

movies, for me, were only discovered, unfortunately, as little as six or seven

years ago.

So Kramer vs. Kramer. Some of the greatest writing I’ve ever seen, some

of the gutsiest performances. It’s just so quintessential of what the 1970s were

for me. There’s just this unfiltered, raw energy, and despite how beautiful that

movie is — and obviously, it’s a well-done movie — the fact [is] that they’re

not making movies like that anymore. [Kramer vs. Kramer is about] a horrible

relationship. It’s a really tough situation for the father to be in, and yet

[for] everyone who went and saw the movie, there was this weird understanding or

commiseration with anger. I think people might have been angrier, or willing to

see angry movies.

Ordinary People (1980)

The accidental death of the older son of an affluent family deeply strains the relationships among the bitter mother, the good-natured father, and the guilt-ridden younger son.

Director: Robert Redford

Writers: Judith Guest (novel), Alvin Sargent (screenplay)

Stars: Donald Sutherland, Mary Tyler Moore, Judd Hirsch

John on why he loves this movie:

Timothy Hutton turns in one of the best male performances I’ve ever seen. And that

family dynamic was so subtle in what could have been a really angsty movie.

Everything from the way it was shot to the way it was acted. John Bailey was

actually the DP on my movie that I directed (Brief Interviews with Hideous

Men) and he was saying that when they shot the psychiatrist scenes he

started out with the camera right over their shoulders, and then he moved the

camera back slowly and changed the lighting, because he said that if you’d been

going to therapy for months, then the lighting would be different every time of

the same day. And I thought, “That’s insane that someone thought of that.” And

then he moved the camera back 100 feet so that they were compressed on each

other so it was a much more intimate scene. I was like, “Wait, wait, wait, this

is insane!”

 

The Verdict (1982)

A lawyer sees the chance to salvage his career and self-respect by taking a medical malpractice case to trial rather than settling.

Director: Sidney Lumet

Writers: Barry Reed (based upon the novel by), David Mamet (screenplay)

Stars: Paul Newman, Charlotte Rampling, Jack Warden

John on why he loves this movie:

I think it’s probably one of the most inspirational movies for me because of

Paul Newman‘s performance. I think that is, to me, some of the best, [most]

controlled acting in a movie. I think that he has this incredible likability.

Even though he’s a drunk, washed-up lawyer, you’re still rooting for him from

the very beginning.

I’m that sort of weird guy who will watch a movie almost every day if I can.

It’s harder when you’re working on the show. I buy a lot of movies on used DVD

so I can have certain scenes. I was really looking for things to inspire me.

When I got out of college I was waiting tables professionally [and] couldn’t

afford to go the theater [every] night. I think those great movies can actually

make you feel a certain way. Not only emotionally, but if you’re in

this business, it’s one of those things where you see someone do something that

good and it buys you a year of energy. That’s what I was really looking for. It

sounds so cliché,[but I wanted] to bask in the glow some of these amazing

performances, like [those of] Dustin Hoffman and Marlon Brando. But it was also

fun. To get back to what I was saying before, that 1970s raw energy, it’s almost

frustrating now that people aren’t making more movies like that because people

won’t go see them.

On the Waterfront (1954)

An ex-prize fighter turned longshoreman struggles to stand up to his corrupt union bosses.

Director: Elia Kazan

Writers: Budd Schulberg (screenplay), Budd Schulberg (based upon an original story by)

Stars: Marlon Brando, Karl Malden, Lee J. Cobb

John on why he loves the movie:

That movie for me was my Marlon Brando experience before The Godfather,

before Streetcar. It’s weird to be living in a modern world where

acting has changed. Movies have changed so much, and yet you can still see what

defined [Brando] and his performance. If I told you that so-and-so was the first

person to do something 30 years ago, you’d be like, “Well, I don’t care, because

people do it now all the time.” There’s still nobody doing what he does in that

movie. And so that really changed everything for me. Also, there was something

really exciting and sad about the whole political aspect of that movie. The

whole blacklisting thing.

The Godfather (1972)

The aging patriarch of an organized crime dynasty transfers control of his clandestine empire to his reluctant son.

Director: Francis Ford Coppola

Writers: Mario Puzo (screenplay by), Francis Ford Coppola (screenplay by)

Stars: Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan

John on why he loves this movie:

Only because it’s everybody’s number one choice. I kinda feel, in this day and age —

not to be sounding bad in any way — we live in a culture where something’s

good, and some people will say it’s awesome, and they may not have even seen it

or they didn’t like it. But they want to agree with the cultural zeitgeist. I

feel like that movie has stood up to time [and] criticism, and yet everybody can

find the exact same reasons as to why it’s awesome. I mean, it’s so

well-written. It’s a slow movie that you’re still riveted by. It’s [got]

character development unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. And of course, the

performances are wild.

 

5 Essential Tips for Watching a Scary Movie

With “A Quiet Place” being released tomorrow, I’ve complied a list of 5 Essential Tips for Watching a Scary Movie.

Make sure to have a pillow or arm to grab onto during the build up to any scene you know will make you jump. This will literally save your life, because, as we all know hiding behind a pillow confuses would be murders/ghosts.

3818cee2eab917acbdf777f93af02985.gif

 

Make sure to have a Happy/Feel good movie to watch after the horror movie! This is essential to surviving any scary movie. What kind of a psycho murder goes to bed directly after watching a terrifying movie? Popular choices include any Disney movie, almost any Jim Carrey or Adam Sandler movie.

tumblr_nrt4c7A5jK1s8njeuo1_500

 

Drink all the wine prior to starting the movie. I cannot stress this enough! I can’t even begin to tell you how many wine stains have accumulated on my couch from watching scary movies.

giphy

 

Check in with family and friends at the end of the movie and before bed. We all know that by watching particularly terrifying movies we increase the likely hood of those things happening to us. It’s Science. By checking in with family and friends we are doing the opposite of what every person that is murdered in a scary movie does, thus, escaping a similar fate.

texting-improves-self-image.gif

 

Remember it’s just a movie and it’s probably not going to happen to you. Get in bed, relax, take it easy, don’t think about the fact that you just witnessed some truly terrifying shit and that if you shut your eyes you’ll likely be murdered. Also, always remember, if you get under your covers you are protected from most scary things! Again, Science!

You should be all set for any scary movie now! If you have anything you do to prepare for a scary movie post in the comments below.

Confirmed: Indiana Jones 5 will be Harrison Ford’s last

Steve Spielberg just confirmed that Indiana Jones 5 will be the last time Harrison Ford plays the iconic character, it was also confirmed that we will be getting more Indiana Jones movies after the 5th film. The movie is set to be released July 20, 2020

Spielberg was said “This will be Harrison Ford’s last Indiana Jones movie, I am pretty sure, but it will certainly continue after that,”

He also discussed the possibility of transitioning the iconic character to a female, Spielberg notes that he knows this may outrage fans, however, he feels that it is time for a change.

“We’d have to change the name from Jones to Joan. And there would be nothing wrong with that,” Said Spielberg

indiana_jones_donna_projectnerd

Male or female I am still genuinely excited for more Indiana Jones films, I personally love any movie dealing with Treasure hunting. Also, I transition to a female lead would be a welcomed change, I’d be very interested to see which actress’s would be considered for this role.

Post who you think would make a great female Indiana Jones in the comment section below!

Confirmed: Quentin Tarantino’s 9th film titled “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”

Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film will be titled ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD, and will star Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. The film will be released worldwide on August 9, 2019.

Personally excited to see this movie develop, I have been a Tarantino fan since I saw PULP FICTION, and have always appreciated the characters that both DiCaprio and Pitt have played. We’re a year and half away from what I hope will be another Tarantino epic. Rumor has it that Margot Robbie will be signing on to play Sharon Tate.

Tarantino describes it as “a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood. The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio), former star of a western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbor…Sharon Tate.”

Tarantino worked with Pitt in INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS which grossed over $321 million worldwide and was nominated for eight Academy Awards®, winning for Best Supporting Actor. DiCaprio starred in the director’s DJANGO UNCHAINED, which grossed over $425 million worldwide, and was nominated for five Academy Awards®, and won for Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor. His most recent film was the $532 million-grossing THE REVENANT in 2015, for which he won the Oscar® for Best Actor.

Tarantino comments: “I’ve been working on this script for five years, as well as living in Los Angeles County most of my life, including in 1969, when I was seven years old. I’m very excited to tell this story of an LA and a Hollywood that don’t exist anymore. And I couldn’t be happier about the dynamic teaming of DiCaprio & Pitt as Rick & Cliff.”

  4. Molly’s Game – It was just ok, I thought it was going to be incredible, but it wasn’t if it wasn’t based on a true story it would be awful.
  5. The Foreigner – Jackie Chan action/thriller, can’t go wrong if you like Jackie, the story was kind of good too, definitely an enjoyable movie for action lovers.
  6. Pitch Perfect 3 – Not as good as the first one, or the second one, I think they should have stopped after the first one but that’s just me.
  7. I, Tonya – Great movie, the acting was amazing, and the story was crazy, for the first time since reading about this I felt bad for Tonya.
  8. Thor: Ragnarok – Marvel does it again with another action-packed superhero movie, my only beef is that Marvel keeps making comedy a big part of their superhero movies, still incredible though.
  9. Coco – Disney/Pixar does it again, love this movie, the songs are amazing and the visualize are on point. if you like animated movies, you’ll love this.
  10. Downsizing – Weird movie, very very frustrating, and I swear I wanted to smack Matt Damon’s character a few times but it was an interesting take on the future, worth watching once but don’t expect much.

Lord of the Rings (2001), Christopher Lee, who played Saruman, informed Peter Jackson the proper sound a man made when being stabbed in the back. His expertise stemmed from his time as an undercover agent with the British Intelligence during WWII. So, in other words, Christopher Lee was a real life, James Bond.

Monster’s Inc. (2001) is beloved by people around the world, partly because of the loveable Monsters, but, mostly because of the adorable portrayal of Boo by actress Mary Gibbs. When shooting began, Gibb was so young that she had trouble sitting still to record her lines, which lead to her having to be followed around with a microphone so the crew could then piece together pieces of the random things she would say during her play time and put it into the movie as her dialogue.

A Quite Place FINAL TRAILER is Here

Early reaction to John Krasinski’s big screen directorial debut has been phenomenal and judging by the trailers I am not surprised at all. Each trailer has gotten better and better, I am really hoping this isn’t one of those cases where the trailer is better than the movie.

I am anxiously waiting for this one to hit theaters, it’s been a while since I’ve seen a proper scary movie in theaters.

The Man who Knew Infinity (2016)

Dev Patel portrays Srinivasa Ramanujan, the brilliant mathematician from Indian who travelled from his home land to study Math at Cambridge. This movie takes place in 1913 and is set during wartime England. I enjoyed this movie from start to finish and I think it was because I had no idea Srinivasa Ramanujan existed prior to watching this. It was a inside look into the mind of genius and should be on everyone list. FACT: As his mentor Professor G. H. Hardy (Played by Jermey Irons), a celebrated mathematician himself who considered his own life’s greatest contribution to mathematics as the discovery of Ramanujan, put it, numbers were “personal friends of Ramanujan.”

Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey lead this star studded cast and truly put further inspiring performances. FACT: When he started at the White House in 1952, he couldn’t even use the public restrooms when he ventured back to his native Virginia.

Johnny Depp is back and looking all sorts of weird, he grew his hair out (Thankfully) and is a much darker and twisted version of Grindelwald . Compare his look in the pictures below, this alone leads me to believe the sequel is going to be better than the original.
