Advance Review: Bridge Of Spies

Spoiler-Free!   On Monday evening, I saw an advance screening of the new Steven Spielberg/Tom Hanks movie, Bridge Of Spies.  There were two things that really surprised me about this screening. Almost no one was there.  Advance screening are usually popular events, yet the theater was maybe half-full at most. The thing


Review: Ant-Man (Spoiler-Free)

Ant-Man is possibly Marvel’s biggest gamble to date.  Guardians of the Galaxy had that honor last year, and went on to become one of the most beloved movies in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).  Even though it contained a group of characters the mainstream audience was not the most familiar with, it


Review: Avengers: Age Of Ultron (Spoiler-Free)

Avengers: Age Of Ultron came with ridiculously high expectations.  After the first Avengers movie became the third highest grossing film of all time, the world learned something that a lucky cult following had known for many years: JOSS WHEDON IS A GENIUS!!!  Was it possible to meet, or even exceed expectations for a


Review: Ex Machina (Spoiler-free)

When I first saw the trailer for Ex Machina, it immediately caught my interest.  The concept of AI is always fascinating to me, and it looked like this movie was going to put a dark, original twist on it.  Now that I’ve seen it, I can report that it is a beautiful


Advance Review: Dumb And Dumber To

NOTE: Spoiler-free review, only mentioning points seen in the trailers. Dumb  And Dumber is a movie I never really connected with as a kid.  Loving the over the top physical humor Jim Carrey brought to Fire Marshall Bill on In Living Color, Ace Ventura and The Mask, I remember actually being pretty disappointed


Advance Review: The Book Of Life

This review is spoiler-free, containing only plot points found in the trailers. Walking into The Book Of Life, I had a single expectation: A visually stunning movie.  I’m happy to say that it exceeded my expectations in the visual department, and on top of that was so much more. The plot of


Advance Review: This Is Where I Leave You

NOTE: Relatively Spoiler-Free review, touching on plot points shown in the trailer, and some descriptions of a few characters. I don’t know if I didn’t pay close enough attention to the trailers, but going into This Is Where I Leave You, I was expecting a straight up comedy.  I was in no


Guardians Of The Galaxy = Two Hour NERDGASM!

I was planning on that title being my entire review of Guardians of the Galaxy, but it simply does not do the movie justice. If you’re a regular Pure Geekery reader, there’s a very good chance you’ve already seen the movie.  However, I’m still going to leave this review spoiler-free. Marvel took


Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda: A good BAD movie

Last year, the world caught Sharknado fever.  If you read my review of it, you will recall that I somehow had a natural immunity to this type of fever.  While the world tuned in to Sharknado 2: The Second One last Wednesday, I patiently waited for what I hoped to be the


Advance Review: Let’s Be Cops

NOTE: Spoiler-free review, containing only details from released trailers Let’s Be Cops is a movie that popped up out of nowhere.  The first I had heard of it was around a month ago, when a trailer for it played before something else I was seeing, and it really caught my attention.  A
