Blade Runner 2049: White Slavery

3,496 words

Blade Runner 2049 is a deep and interesting film fueled by visual spectacle and cleverly-handled ambiguity. The film’s dialogue is sparse and carefully weighted, and the intricate plot resolves itself fairly satisfactorily (even though the film takes its sweet time getting there). Nonetheless, it fails to live up to its predecessor. It struggles to make headway with the theological commentary of the original – lines about Replicants being “angels” are unjustified, and are thankfully marginal. Read more …

Aquaman & the Revenge of God’s Chosen Fish People

2,858 words

Aquaman was perhaps the closest thing to a fulfillment of Kantbot’s promise that Trump would raise Thule, and Atlantis. In order to give Aquaman a saleable “mythic resonance,” it unavoidably has to draw on Greco-Roman mythology and showcase what is bemoaningly called White Male Power. Whilst a 2018 film, Aquaman seems to belong to the late ‘90s in its casting and racial attitudes, and the screenplay has all sorts of lines that describe an interplay of Aryan and Judaic values.

Agents & Agency in Naked Lunch

3,924 words

Quotes from the Naked Lunch film are unreferenced. Quotes from the text have a chapter reference, as page references are different between the various published editions and formats.

Naked Lunch is David Cronenberg’s 1991 adaptation of William Burroughs’ novel of the same name. It is likely as close to a direct adaptation of the novel as possible, given that Naked Lunch is a postmodern piece of fiction with many asides and no clear narrative structure. Read more …

Herding Cats:
Individualism & Dystopia in Lao She’s Cat Country

2,498 words

“When I was little, this was a large village. And that was not too many years ago; now, there’s not so much as a single shadow. The destruction of an entire people can come about very easily!”[1]

Lao She’s Cat Country is one of the finest pieces of literature I’ve read. Written in 1932 in the long shadow of the Bolshevik Revolution and foreshadowing the Maoist terror that would wrack China, Read more …

Racial Exterminationism in Rakka

2,414 words

Rakka is a science fiction short film from director Neil Blomkamp. After being propelled to fame by District 9, Blomkamp went on to make Elysium, a less well-received and overtly preachy movie that has rightly drawn the ire of White Nationalists; both Gregory Hood and Kevin MacDonald have ably covered its breathtakingly arrogant subtext and narrative shortcomings. Following up Elysium with the poorly reviewed Chappie, a multiculturalist movie about rappers and a police robot, Read more …

Michael Crichton
State of Fear
New York: HarperCollins, 2004

State of Fear is a 2004 techno-thriller by Michael Crichton, who also authored The Andromeda Strain, Jurassic Park, Prey, Next, and other science fiction and speculative novels. Crichton’s formula was to make heavy use of established science and extrapolate into “What if?” scenarios, constructing fast-paced thriller plots hinging on the scientific fads of the day.

The Day of the Triffids as a White Survival Parable

3,795 words

The Day of the Triffids is a 1951 novel by the English science fiction writer John Wyndham. Prior to serving in the Second World War, Wyndham wrote short stories for pulp magazines, and The Day of the Triffids was his first book, published when he was 48. It launched his short but illustrious career as a science-fiction horror writer whose premises were simple enough that they could be easily grasped, yet were boldly original. Read more …

Mortal Engines & Broken Humanists

2,355 words

Mortal Engines is an action-adventure yarn spanning four books by teen fiction author Philip Reeve, first published in 2001. With the recent box-office flop of the movie adaptation, it’s an opportune time to share some thoughts on the strengths and weaknesses of this enduringly popular quartet. I first read Mortal Engines and its sequels (Predator’s Gold, Infernal Devices, and A Darkling Plain) in my mid-teens, and haven’t picked them up since, so the following is entirely from a decade’s worth of offhand contemplation.

Aggretsuko, or Aggressive Retsuko, is a 2017 Netflix anime that has garnered notable fanfare, praise, and controversy from critics and audiences. When I say “critics,” of course that means the establishment organs of liberal NPCthink who have been falling over themselves to gush about the goodness of the ridiculous, hysterical anti-male tropes in this bizarre musical comedy.

Attack of the Bugmen!
Heinlein & Verhoeven’s Starship Troopers

2,269 words

Robert Heinlein’s novel Starship Troopers is a genre-defining classic of science fiction. First published in 1959, Heinlein’s work is audacious in propounding aristocratic militarism, will-to-power, social inequality, and contempt for liberal and mercantile values. Starship Troopers describes the path of a young man, Johnny Rico, from uncertain recruit to achieving the rank of Field Officer in an interstellar war against the “Bugs,” a species of giant arachnids.

Skateboarding & White Identity

1,432 words

Part 2 here

White Identity or ‘Whiteness’ is a fundamental aspect of Skateboarding. My aim is to provide a bridge and reference point for Skateboarders and Alt-Righters to make common cause.[1] Through this, boarders can become aware of themselves as White and under attack from a racial perspective and not merely for their chosen sport — though Skateboarding is, as we shall see, being attacked as being representative of healthy White norms and as a de-facto bastion of White Identity, Read more …

Avengers: Infinity War

1,244 words

Infinity War is a “gargantuan” film that has surpassed being a mere movie and become a cinema “event.” It is the latest in the trilogy of Avengers movies, and apparently nineteenth in Marvel’s “Cinematic Universe.” Having seen only Iron Man and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, I watched this fanboy-specific orgasmatron with unbiased eyes and little clue what was happening. It’s big, it’s gnarly, it has Thor, the Hulk, and all your favorite (or not so favorite) characters, but is it any good?  Read more …

Making Equestria Great Again
My Little Pony: The Movie

2,345 words

My Little Pony: The Movie has surely been a test and a crisis for the franchise and its creators. Has it succumbed to the enormous pressure to cuck out, and dilute its themes and formula with “poz”? Or have the show and the Mane Six retained their integrity through the quantum leap to the big screen?

Thankfully, there is little here to complain about. Unlike previous spin-offs of the Equestria Girls movies set in the relative narrative isolation of an American high school, My Little Pony: The Movie is set in Equestria with a capital E, Read more …
