Review: Hubie Halloween (2020)

I took it on good word from a critic I respect that Adam Sandler’s newest film for Netflix was actually a pretty solid film that I ought to check out. In hindsight, I probably shouldn’t have bothered. Truthfully, the film wasn’t the utter disgusting abomination of a comedy I feared it could be. Sandler’s nameContinue reading “Review: Hubie Halloween (2020)”

Borat 2 Catches Rudy Giuliani in Embarrassing Position, Brutally Skewers Fringe Republicans and Conspiracy Theorists

The internet has been ablaze this week in the leadup to the long awaited sequel to Sacha Baron Cohen’s famously provocative comedy Borat. The amusingly titled film Borat Subsequent Moviefilm was shot in secret last year and finally dropped on Amazon Prime early this morning following days of critical acclaim and rumors about it’s content.Continue reading “Borat 2 Catches Rudy Giuliani in Embarrassing Position, Brutally Skewers Fringe Republicans and Conspiracy Theorists”

Movie Review – Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020)

Aaron Sorkin is one of the most supercilious, self righteous and pretentious filmmakers in modern filmmaking. He’s not bad at writing but his work preaches arrogantly to the choir and aggrandizes leftist causes at every level regardless of whether it’s logical or right to do so. I don’t hate his entire filmography of course. HisContinue reading “Movie Review – Trial of the Chicago 7 (2020)”

Movie Review – Tenet (2020)

To my culture critic friend Tyler Hummel, I offer a sincere apology. I am sorry that I am so late in writing a review of Tenet for your website Cultural Revue. Event after event, all in sinister succession, worked against me: The lingering effects of a pandemic, two hurricanes, three unnaturally long work weeks, sickness,Continue reading “Movie Review – Tenet (2020)”

Dinesh D’Souza’s America – How Five Documentaries Depict A Declining Conservative Intellectual

A copy of Dinesh D’Souza’s new documentary Trump Card arrived in the mail this week. I haven’t been anticipating watching it of late but I was prepared to give it a shot given that I gave the last four of his documentaries a shot. If nothing else, I was hoping there might be something moreContinue reading “Dinesh D’Souza’s America – How Five Documentaries Depict A Declining Conservative Intellectual”

Movie Review – On the Rocks (2020)

I’m not overly familiar with the works of Sofia Coppola. Her reputation as a filmmaker precedes her though. Famously, she starred in the most infamously panned films role in The Godfather Part 3 and then turned her reputation around with her critically acclaimed film Lost in Translation. Since then, She has worked on numerous independentContinue reading “Movie Review – On the Rocks (2020)”

Movie Review – A Rainy Day in New York (2019)

Sometimes a movie just isn’t worth the controversy surrounding it. That’s not to say A Rainy Day in New York is bad. The problem is just that it’s not a good enough Woody Allen movie to warrant two years of delays and boycotts. Then again, the controversy was never about the movie. I’m not preparedContinue reading “Movie Review – A Rainy Day in New York (2019)”

Movie Review – Infidel (2020)

The America-Right has complained for decades that there’s an extreme lack in conservative art coming out of the entertainment industry. As Andrew Brietbart famously was quoted saying, “Politics is down stream of culture.” The side of the aisle that controls news, school, comedy, TV, film, music and literature is the side of the aisle that’sContinue reading “Movie Review – Infidel (2020)”
