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 […]

Here is a region-by-region breakdown of the disaster you can expect and best times to take care of important biological necessities. For most of you it will be your last Peetime. Make it count! New Zealand If you live […]

Movie review: The Hobbit

Grade: A- It’s such a pleasure to return to Middle-earth. Peter Jackson and his team have masterfully recreated and expanded the universe according to Tolkien. I know from the production diaries, created during the filming of *The Hobbit*, that the undertaking was massive. Not just in the technical challenges of filming at 48fps IMAX 3D […]

Movie Review : Hitchcock

Grade: C Anthony Hopkins does a wonderful job of impersonating Hitchcock. The makeup crew did a great job with the look and he nailed Hitchcock’s mannerisms and especially his quirky speech patterns. But, in my opinion Helen Mirren is the real star of the show. It’s her performance that lifts the movie up from being […]
