Meet the RunPee family

Dan – that’s me – had the idea for the app back in 2005 after seeing the movie King Kong. It was a super long movie, but I never got up to run and pee. By the end of the movie I was in agony – but I stayed until the end. As I left […]

X-Men: Apocalypse (movie review)

Grade: B It’s always a struggle to rate and review movies like this.
