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.

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”.

Movie Review: Borat Subsequent Movie Film (2020)

I’ll just say this up front, I never watched the original Borat. I was twelve in 2007 and wasn’t really in the market for R-Rated dark comedies at the time.
