AIREY – ‘Soldier’ Retrospective: The Forgotten ‘Blade Runner’ Successor

Very few science fiction movies have brought about more debate than the 1982 Ridley Scott film Blade Runner. The feature would inspire a 2017 sequel Blade Runner 2049 produced by Scott and directed by Denis Villeneuve.  However, there is one overlooked flick that is considered a “spiritual successor” of sorts to Blade Runner. It wasContinue reading “AIREY – ‘Soldier’ Retrospective: The Forgotten ‘Blade Runner’ Successor”

Classic Review: Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992)

The more I go back and watch John Carpenters movies, I can’t help but appreciate just how excellent he is as a director. Even his mediocre films are well made, exciting and brimming with interesting concepts. He could’ve just made Halloween sequels his entire career but instead he constantly chose to tell original and riskyContinue reading “Classic Review: Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992)”

HUMMEL Review: Alone (2020)

For some reason, there have been a lot of lo-fi indie thrillers in the past year using the premise of “woman stalked by aggressive man”. Russell Crowe’s Unhinged was the big, dumb Hollywood version of this story and played up its scenario as a trashier version of the Joker premise where the aggrieved man isContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: Alone (2020)”

HUMMEL Review: An American Pickle (2020)

I would never call Seth Rogen a particularly introspective filmmaker or comedian. His output has been particularly low brow, broad and on the nose. He traffics mostly in jokes about drugs and atheism and doesn’t have much to say beyond the most surface level understanding of these topics. That’s not to say his films don’tContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: An American Pickle (2020)”

HUMMEL – 33 Conservative Film Recommendations for Modern Audiences

I am a man of lists. I like arranging things and creating ordered lists to work through. I’m also a man who enjoys curating and recommending works of art and entertainment to people who don’t delve into film and literature as deeply as I do. I love recommendation lists for these reasons! As a fanContinue reading “HUMMEL – 33 Conservative Film Recommendations for Modern Audiences”

Fahrenheit 451 on Film: The Unspoken Irony of Leftist Book Burning

Adaptation is a difficult process. You have to handle fidelity to the text you’re adapting in equal measure with the necessity to create an independent and self reliant piece of storytelling absent fans of the source material. I won’t pretend it’s easy. That said, when a film like Fahrenheit 451 (2018) comes along it feelsContinue reading “Fahrenheit 451 on Film: The Unspoken Irony of Leftist Book Burning”

Lionsgate’s “Borderlands” Film Casts Kevin Harte and Cate Blanchett as Leads

The bizarre Borderlands film, currently in development, is starting to take shape over at Lionsgate! According to a news report today, the first two actors in the film have been cast already. As was reported by Variety: “Kevin Hart is joining Cate Blanchett in the cast of “Borderlands,” a movie adaptation of the popular videoContinue reading “Lionsgate’s “Borderlands” Film Casts Kevin Harte and Cate Blanchett as Leads”

GUG Review: Hunted (2021)

My review for Shudder’s newest original film went live at Geeks Under Grace! The film in question is a post-modern retelling of the Little Red Riding Hood story that reframed its archetypal fairy tale as a revenge story about the power dynamics between a violent rapist and his would-be victim. This film was a bluntContinue reading “GUG Review: Hunted (2021)”
