The Great Gatsby – movie review

Grade: C+ Let me start of by saying I haven’t read the book. I know, I know, it’s required reading for practically every high school student. I must have been sick that day. It’s difficult to give this move a single overall grade because some aspects were pretty good while others were…not so much. Lets […]

Iron Man 3 – movie review

Grade: B- There is a lot to like about Iron Man 3, but, speaking for myself, not a lot to love. Where it falls short is that there’s never a moment where I feel that Iron Man won’t survive and save the day. Of course they’re not going to kill of Iron Man in a […]

G.I. Joe: Retaliation – movie review

Grade: D- If you’re a big G.I. Joe fan and you know all the characters and their relationships to each other then you might like this movie. But I’m not a G.I. Joe fan and I don’t know anything about the universe so a large portion of the movie was confusing to me. It was […]

Olympus has Fallen – movie review

Grade: B+ “Olympus has Fallen” is a lot like “Die Hard” in the White House. It is by no means as good but it’s still an entertaining and action packed movie. ( When I say “Die Hard” I’m talking about the original movie and not the latest release in the series. ) Movie critics are […]

Highlight of MegaCon

The RunPee family attended the MegaCon conference here in Orlando this week. It was a chance to wear our t-shirts and help spread the word about RunPee. It was encouraging to see just how few of the people we talked to have heard about RunPee. That shows us that even though the app is selling […]

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 […]
