COSMO – Blackpilled or Bust: What does the Disillusioned Right Do Now?

I have nothing to say on the Patriot’s March that took place in Washington D.C on January 6th, 2021 that hasn’t already been said. I don’t care that Antifa agitators were involved; I don’t care about the optics. The ship is sailed. The curtain is down. A Patriot who served her country in unless warsContinue reading “COSMO – Blackpilled or Bust: What does the Disillusioned Right Do Now?”

America, Racism and War: How Glory (1989) Challenges Racism in a Meaningful Way

In an age where race is one of the most discussed aspects of modern life (depressingly), it’s worth considering just how the topic is portrayed on film. Discussions on the topic are almost always complex minefields of semiotics and sensitive issues. In film though, race tends to bring out fire brands. Film critics praise scorchingContinue reading “America, Racism and War: How Glory (1989) Challenges Racism in a Meaningful Way”

My Eight Favorite Games of the Eighth Console Generation

2013-2020 was a strange time for me in terms of my gaming habits. My most dedicated peak as a gamer was between 2010 (when I purchased my Xbox 360) and the spring of 2014 when I became fully enraptured by my freshman year of college. Following this period, I developed a very mercenary attitude towardsContinue reading “My Eight Favorite Games of the Eighth Console Generation”

COSMO – “Political Violence Rocks Boston Harbor!”

December 1773: Boston, Massachusetts Colony Authorities are left shocked and appalled by the egregious act of political violence undertaken last month. A rabble of violent thugs burst onto Griffin’s Wharf in Boston Harbor on the night of December 16th. Dressed in ridiculous garb, they boarded several docks ships, and dumped approximately 342 chests of importedContinue reading “COSMO – “Political Violence Rocks Boston Harbor!””

The Cynicism of “Unity”: A Call For Biden to Distance Himself From the Radical Left

As Joe Biden moved into the transitionary phase in preparation for taking over the White House this month, he’s sold himself as a candidate of reconciliation. His own Twitter account makes it sound like he’s the great uniter and that some vision of America has come back now that the hell of the Trump administrationContinue reading “The Cynicism of “Unity”: A Call For Biden to Distance Himself From the Radical Left”

Tyler’s Seven Favorite Films of 2020

I’ve considered how to approach 2020 as a year in cinema for quite a while. The challenge isn’t easy. Normally I have about thirty films I’ve seen in a given year that I toss around and debate which ought to be considered the “Best” of the year. Two things have changed for me in theContinue reading “Tyler’s Seven Favorite Films of 2020”

Merry Christmas from Cultural Revue – A Brief Story About the Birth of Christ and Family

There’s a great line in the movie Talladega Nights where in two children learn that their parents who are about to get divorced. Instead of being moarnful at their parents breaking up, the two children turn to one another and scream “TWO CHRISTMASES!” It’s a very dark joke but one I relate to as aContinue reading “Merry Christmas from Cultural Revue – A Brief Story About the Birth of Christ and Family”

The Tragedy of Anakin Skywalker: The Star Wars Prequels as Classical Tragedy

Deconstructing the multitudinous problems in the Star Wars Prequels became a cottage industry online for much of the late 2000s. 21 years later, I still hear grown men whining about how Jar Jar Binks ruined The Phantom Menace. In truth, I’ve mostly gotten bored with this dialog. Maybe it’s a symptom of the fact thatContinue reading “The Tragedy of Anakin Skywalker: The Star Wars Prequels as Classical Tragedy”

A Brief Thanksgiving Testimony: Despair, Hope, God and Gratitude in 2020

“…the more hopeless is the situation the more hopeful must be the man.” – Heretics by G.K. Chesterton I can’t just be speaking for myself saying that 2020 has been a hard year. I lost my day job in March and it never came back. I lost other better job opportunities to chance. I hadContinue reading “A Brief Thanksgiving Testimony: Despair, Hope, God and Gratitude in 2020”

Life Isn’t Fair: Why The Princess Bride’s Framing Device Matters

Whether you watch the movie or read the book, William Goldman’s The Princess Bride, a self-described “Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure” is separated from its true author through the filter of a fictional author: S. Morgenstern. In the movie, Grandpa, Peter Falk, reads the Morgenstern book to his grandson, Fred Savage. InContinue reading “Life Isn’t Fair: Why The Princess Bride’s Framing Device Matters”
