Jack the Giant Slayer – movie review

Grade: D+ I was hoping Jack the Giant Slayer would be more than just a kid  movie. Nicholas Hoult – Jack – and Eleanor Tomlinson – Isabelle – are promising young actors, and are backed up by the amazing talents of Ewan McGregor and Stanley Tucci. While the cast delivered decent performances, the story was […]

A Good Day to Die Hard – movie review

Grade: C- I’ve been a huge Die Hard fan from day one. I’ve seen every installment in the theater on opening day, and with each movie the question is: how does it compare to the original. So far I don’t think any of the squeals have been as good but a few have been close. […]

Bullet to the Head

Grade: C- *Bullet to the Head* isn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I know that’s not exactly high praise but I’ve been dreading this movie since I first saw the trailer – I typically do the action movies for RunPee. I’m not saying that it was outstanding by any means. The […]

Movie review: The Last Stand

Grade: C- BREAKING NEWS > Arnold Schwarzenegger can act! I know, right? It’s shocking. I’m not saying that he’s a great actor by any means. But his performance in *The Last Stand* was a little better than decent. He appeared comfortable in his role instead of the forced performances of many of his past movies. […]

Movie review: Zero Dark Thirty

Grade: A- Kudos to director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal for putting together a great story that must have been a tremendous challenge. Consider that Osama Bin Laden was killed just over 18 months ago. There must have been an amazing amount of research put into this screenplay. To do that research, write a […]

RunPee T-shirts

Would anyone be interested in a RunPee t-shirt? I’m not looking to make any money from t-shirt sales. I just want to get t-shirts out to the fans who would like them. It helps me market the app so I’ll basically charge the cost of the shirt + shipping. I think I can get that […]

Movie review : The Impossible

Grade: B+ The Impossible isn’t a fantastic movie my any means. But it’s certainly an entertaining dive into the tragic story of one particular family’s experiences in one of the worst natural catastrophes in human history. It’s important to know that this isn’t an *Hollywood* movie. It is a Spanish production – written by Sergio […]

Movie review: Promissed Land

Grade: C+ If you believe that using fracking to drill for natural gas is environmentally damaging and that corporations are inherently evil then you’ll probably enjoy this movie. That being said I’m not sure why anyone who meets those two criteria would want to see the movie because it’s just preaching to the choir. It’s […]

Movie review : Jack Reacher

Grade: B First off let me say that I have not read any of the *Jack Reacher* books so I can’t say how well they did or didn’t translate the character into the movie. There was very little about the movie not to like. There was only one scene – that I don’t want to […]
