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: 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”

Comic Review: Darth Mail: Son of Dathimir (Mini-Series)

Some Spoilers Below for Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels I was still a wee lad when Star Wars: The Clone Wars premiered in 2008. As a 13 year old, I was the perfect age to get absolutely hooked on the show and I certainly did! I followed it loyally for theContinue reading “Comic Review: Darth Mail: Son of Dathimir (Mini-Series)”

GUG Review: Godzilla vs. Kong

I seem to be on the higher end of critical appraisals for the newest Godzilla film. I’ve enjoyed the entire Monster-Verse so far and I genuinely enjoy classic monster flicks already. Maybe I’m just predisposed to enjoying DUMB monster movies with empty characters and nonsense stories. Then again, I’ve never reviewed the Transformers series andContinue reading “GUG Review: Godzilla vs. Kong”

HUMMEL Review: Judas and the Black Messiah (2021)

The title of Shaka King’s (produced by Ryan Coogler) new film should tell you almost everything you need to know about the moral compass of his new film. In Christianity, Judas has a very specific significance, he was Christ’s traitor who handed him over to the Roman authorizes for a thirty pieces of silver. TheContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: Judas and the Black Messiah (2021)”

PODCAST – Reviewing Jordan Peterson’s Beyond Order with Haryan Gláeddyv

A month back, Jordan Peterson’s third book Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life was finally released! The 400 page book took a while for me to get through but proved to be yet another reflective and fascinating work of psychological and mythological analysis! Fellow YouTuber Haryan Gláeddyv joined the show for an hour toContinue reading “PODCAST – Reviewing Jordan Peterson’s Beyond Order with Haryan Gláeddyv”

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: Fahrenheit 451

I’ve written before, here at Cultural Revue, about my deep disdain for the left’s appropriation of anti-fascist literature. I’m not mad just because they ‘re sanctimonious hypocrites. I’m mad because they don’t understand the literature. In my recent review for Ray Bradberry’s Fahrenheit 451, I write about the tendency for people to use the bookContinue reading “GUG Review: Fahrenheit 451”

PODCAST – Steve Donoghue, BookTube and Book Reviewing

Our newest podcast is live! In light of the overly serious tone of the show in recent weeks (months…), were endeavoring to scale things back and do some more lighthearted interviews and entertainment discussions. Next week we’re scheduled to interview Jacob Airey to discuss HBO Max’s release of the SnyderCut and the following week weContinue reading “PODCAST – Steve Donoghue, BookTube and Book Reviewing”

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)”
