GUG Review: That Hideous Strength

My trilogy of reviews for CS Lewis’s Space Trilogy is complete! Last year, I reviewed Out of the Silent Planet and Perelandra. I loved both books!

HUMMEL Review: Sound of Metal (2020)

I can’t think of a movie that’s played more heck with my mental state in recent months than Amazon Prime’s recent drama Sound of Metal.

Art as Pornography: What Do We Get Out of Stories?

I ask myself a simple question a lot nowadays: What do we get out of art? That’s a tough question.

HUMMEL Review: Saint Frances (2020)

There’s a great line at the halfway point of Saint Frances were the film’s central character is experiencing a strange existential conflict.

Ethical Consumption Under Woke Capitalism: Losing the Culture by Abandoning Entertainment

There’s a popular quote floating around in far-left, anti-capitalist and progressive circles: “there is no ethical consumption under capitalism”. The sentiment is based on a logical contradiction at the heart of where modern consumer culture meets progressive activism. We’re only human and we’re living in an unethical economic system. The system is corrupt and exploitativeContinue reading “Ethical Consumption Under Woke Capitalism: Losing the Culture by Abandoning Entertainment”

Following up on my recent series of low-budget horror reviews for GeeksUnderGrace.com, my second film in the series was a small Argentinian horror film called The Funeral Home.
