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 Book Review: Thomas Jefferson’s Bible

What is the role of religion in a secular society? How do we (should we) reconcile science and religion? These are questions that have haunted intellectuals for centuries. As we see in one of Thomas Jefferson’s most secretive personal projects, such questions have never been easy to resolve. In 1820, he infamously carved copies ofContinue reading “GUG Book Review: Thomas Jefferson’s Bible”

GUG Review: Church People

I’ve long held a fatwa against “Christian” movies on the grounds that they suck. That’s hardly a hot-take. Most people agree that they suck. I have mostly avoided the genre for years. I think the last two I can remember seeing are Heaven is for Real (2014) and Unplanned (2019). I did however try toContinue reading “GUG Review: Church People”

GUG Classic Review: The King of Kings

This past Easter, I watched through a dozen adaptations of the last of Christ to pick out which versions best captured his story and message. My understated favorite of the lot was Cecil B. Demille’s 1927 biopic King of Kings. The film was a beautiful if unorthodox adaptation of the life of Christ. Demille doesContinue reading “GUG Classic Review: The King of Kings”

GUG Review: That Hideous Strength

My trilogy of reviews for CS Lewis’s Space Trilogy is complete! Last year, I reviewed Out of the Silent Planet and Perelandra. I loved both books! Lewis used his immense love of astronomy and medieval symbolism to craft a fascinating parable for man’s search for meaning within the universe and Joe other species of beingContinue reading “GUG Review: That Hideous Strength”

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)”

Russell Kirk and the Cause for Hope: Western Optimism in Light of the BlackPill

Towards the end of his life, conservative intellectual, Russell Kirk gave a series of lectures in 1987 titled The Wise Men Know What Wicked Things Are Written on the Sky. GK Chesterton aficionados will know that line as from his poem The Ballad of the White Horse which takes place in the time of AlfredContinue reading “Russell Kirk and the Cause for Hope: Western Optimism in Light of the BlackPill”
