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”

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”. The sentiment is based on a logical contradiction at the heart of where modern consumer culture meets progressive activism. We’re only human and we’re living in an unethical economic system. The system is corrupt and exploitativeContinue reading “Ethical Consumption Under Woke Capitalism: Losing the Culture by Abandoning Entertainment”

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”

HUMMEL Review: Uncle Tom – An Oral History of the Black Conservative (2020)

I’m willing to be brave here on Cultural Revue and take contentious stances on issues like race and bigotry.

Book Review: Jordanetics (2018)

Jordan Peterson makes for an interesting Rorsach test. You can tell a lot about a person’s gut instincts by how deeply and quickly they adore/dismiss his ideas. He has more than his fair share of the critics on all sides of the aisle: far-left, far-right and far-center. He also has a large base of supportersContinue reading “Book Review: Jordanetics (2018)”

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”
