  • Surprisingly Solid movie with a good message

    July 27th, 2016

    This movie comes at the perfect time with the craze of Pokemon Go; a time when you literally see millions of people obsessed with an app - where you can find videos of hordes of people in NYC all running after a particular Pokemon.. This is essentially the premise of the movie: a new app (game) comes out that takes teens in a particular city by st...

  • Saw the trailer? There's no need to watch the movie then.

    September 20th, 2016

    Good idea that failed in execution. If you saw the trailer and read the reviews you might think that there's some depth hiding in the actual movie, but unfortunately, you'll be wrong to think so. The actors are the only bright spot. You'll see some well known and rising star faces who's acting was on point. The movie tries to win you with likable ...

  • Starts off okay, but quickly turns into a huge mess

    September 22nd, 2016

    "Nerve" is a 95-minute thriller from this year that is based on a novel by Jeanne Ryan. Jessica Sharzer ("Speak", "American Horror Story") adapted the work for the screen and the directors are Henry Joost and Ariel Schuman, both known mostly for "Catfish" so far. The lead actress is Emma Roberts and the only other cast members I knew in here were ...

  • Vine and Pokemon Go had a baby (and the Kardashians are the Godparents

    August 26th, 2016

    I struggled staying until the end of that movie, probably because I am not within the right demographic,so I'd say, if you are shaving already, this movie is probably not for you! (But if you are not shaving yet I am not sure I would like you to see that movie) I usually enjoy college silly movies or even some high school centered movies, but this...

  • Nerve: Good Concept, Poor Execution

    July 29th, 2016

    This was a movie that I thought had a very cool premise, but at the same time, its trailer appeared to leave no surprises to be discovered.. The Good This film's premise is definitely a fun one, and at the least, this movie was almost constantly entertaining. The dares that these people are forced to do as well as the reasons for why people are pl...

  • good enough for a high school movie

    September 30th, 2016

    I guess, I was too old in age to watch this movie. It might aim at teenagers. To me, a grown-up middle aged man, the movie was boring and predictable. All boys and girls have stereotype characters. Especially boring is the fact that all characters are very conservative thinking, not much youth in them. They all go a bit wild during playing the gam...

  • At last, a summer film with some originality

    August 10th, 2016

    With great internet power comes great irresponsibility. This is the premise behind "Nerve", a film whose producers must have wet themselves with excitement that the Pokemon Go craze aligned so nicely with the release of their film. I was delighted that at last this summer there is a film with a modicum of originality I can enthuse about. . 'Vee', ...

  • Nerve

    September 4th, 2016

    I found the central concept of Nerve ingenious, and it seems unbelievable that something like that doesn't already exist. However, the screenplay (based on a homonym novel by Jeanne Ryan) loses credibility with an alarming quickness, making the provocative ethic dilemmas of the game become a series of whims designed to generate drama and suspense ...

  • Completely blew me away - the most fun I've had at the theatre so far this year

    July 26th, 2016

    Starring the amazing and very pretty Emma Roberts, and the always charismatic Dave Franco, "Nerve" is a new thriller about a high school senior named Venus (Emma) who joins an online community, called Nerve, of adrenaline-junkies where anonymous watchers can dare players to do, well, whatever they want to see someone do. . From start to finish, th...

  • Good mindless entertainment if you're trying to kill a few hours.

    October 14th, 2016

    I'm the guy who can appreciate Ben Affleck's Daredevil as mindless with that being said I'm not too hard to impress. I liked this movie's's fun and engaging. The actors did a good job with it for what it was. It's not an Oscar worthy movie by any means, but if you're bored and you're looking for something to mindles...
