HUMMEL Review: Pig (2021)

I was not expecting a Nic Cage movie to be among this year’s best movies but nowadays I don’t expect a lot of things from film. Post 2019, it’s very hard to depend on Hollywood to deliver much very promptly. Regardless, it was inevitable that we’d get another one of Nic Cage’s WEIRD movies. He’sContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: Pig (2021)”

HUMMEL Review: Woman in the Window (2021)

I’m not familiar with AJ Finn’s 2018 novel of the same name as the film that just go released this year. I’m aware is somewhat along the lines of recent lurid female-centric thriller novels like Girl on the Train or Gone Girl but beyond that I approached the film mostly blind. My primarily interest inContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: Woman in the Window (2021)”

GUG Review: Roe vs Wade

I’ve mostly given up on “Christian” movies. The genre is mostly empty and vapid with very little challenging or emotionally honest work coming out of the genre out of the past two decades. Then again, most directors don’t reach out to you specifically to review their film by request. The movie’s writer/producer/director specifically reached outContinue reading “GUG Review: Roe vs Wade”

GUG Review: The Father

Nothing about this year’s Oscars ceremony was surprising. The only minor surprise came in the best performance category. Everyone and their mother assumed Chadwick Bozeman would win Best Actor of posthumously following his tragic passing from cancer last summer. Much to everyone’s surprise, Anthony Hopkins won for his performance in The Father. Anyone who hasContinue reading “GUG Review: The Father”

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. I went into the film blind after learning it was one of this year’s best picture nominations. It and Promising Young Woman are the only films on the list IContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: Sound of Metal (2020)”

GUG Review: Nomadland

This year’s great breakout film at the Golden Globes was Chlao Zhao’s Nomadland ! Zhao has been an ascendant, up and coming, young director for years now following her breakthrough film The Rider (2017). She’s also slated as the director of Marvel’s The Eternals which should’ve released last fall but is currently slated for NovemberContinue reading “GUG Review: Nomadland”

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. Her mother asks her, “if you could chose between never having been born or being born into the life you’re in right now, which would you choose?” Bridget genuinely doesn’t know how toContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: Saint Frances (2020)”

GUG Review: Minari

Film is finally starting to catch up! With this year’s awards season finally starting up, many of the big awards nominee films are slowly dropping in theaters! One of my favorites was this small A24 film Minari about a Korean immigrant family trying to make ends meet in a farm in Rural Arkansas! It’s sad,Continue reading “GUG Review: Minari”

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)”
