HUMMEL Review: Land (2021)

There are a lot of great films I simply don’t recommend to my friends because I know for a fact that the average person will hate them. Most people engage with art at the level of entertainment. You can occasionally send them something challenging that they’ll enjoy in hindsight but often people will simply beContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: Land (2021)”

Sarah Hargett, writer for the blog How to Watch a Movie, has appeared on the show twice before to hangout and talk about movies.

Disney+ Adds Trigger Warnings to The Muppet Show for “Negative Depictions of Cultures”

In yet another act of embarrassment for the House of the Mouse, Disney+ has seen fit to add content advisories to eighteen episodes of the classic kid’s show The Muppet Show. “This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures,” the advisory reads. “These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. RatherContinue reading “Disney+ Adds Trigger Warnings to The Muppet Show for “Negative Depictions of Cultures””

PODCAST – Ginger (Fighting the Void) and the Differences Between Catholicism and Protestantism

I’ve been bad about updating this site for the last two weeks. Part of that has involved my schedule getting crazy and part of it has involved problems with editing several recent episodes of the show. There are corruption/editing issues with the Hotep Jesus/Sarah Hargett recordings… Regardless, I forgot to post the link to myContinue reading “PODCAST – Ginger (Fighting the Void) and the Differences Between Catholicism and Protestantism”

HUMMEL Review: Earwig and The Witch (2021)

Studio Ghibli is back! Kinda! I’m not gonna lie. The post-Wind Rises artistic arc for Japan’s greatest animation studio has been bizarre. The Tale of Princess Kaguya was a heart wrenching film and original animated film but it’s immediate Followup When Marnie Was There felt somewhat overwrought and cliche. Their “last” film The Red TurtleContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: Earwig and The Witch (2021)”

Gina Carano Fired from Lucasfilm, #CancelDisneyPlus Trends

Gina Carano, Star of Disney+’s The Mandalorian, has been fired from Lucasfilm, future Star Wars projects and her talent agency. The move came after a posting yesterday on Instagram wherein she compared the plight of conservatives in Hollywood to Jews in Germany before the Holocaust and claimed that they were facing discrimination and mob harassment.Continue reading “Gina Carano Fired from Lucasfilm, #CancelDisneyPlus Trends”

A Brief Recap of WandaVision – Episode 5

I’m starting to run out of ways to come up with crackpot theories about where WandaVision is going. If nothing else, it feels like the series is starting to settle into its final stretch. Wanda is clearly (Mostly) the instigator of what is happening and she is a great deal more hostile that I initiallyContinue reading “A Brief Recap of WandaVision – Episode 5”

A Brief Recap of WandaVision – Episode 4

It took me a solid minute to catch onto what was happening in the prologue to this week’s episode. Once it clicked, I was actually pleasantly surprised. This introduction shows us the moments after Bruce Banner snapped half of life back into existence. It’s actually mildly grotesque and unsettling… Unlike in Spiderman Far From Home,Continue reading “A Brief Recap of WandaVision – Episode 4”

HUMMEL Review: The Marksman (2021)

I’m starting to question what the purpose of Liam Neeson movies is at this point. How many times can one actor make crappy ripoffs of one successful action movie and still remain a popular actor? Evidently the answer is ALOT. Take 2, Taken 3, Unknown, Non-Stop, Run All Night, The Commuter, Cold Pursuit, Honest ThiefContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: The Marksman (2021)”

A Brief Recap of WandaVision – Episode 3

I get the feeling that WandaVision is going to run out of gas long before it hits episode 9. Call it a hunch but the clues and gimmicks are starting to point to their eventual grand reveal and I can’t help but wonder if three hours of classic sitcom homage is going to work atContinue reading “A Brief Recap of WandaVision – Episode 3”
