The RunPee approach to Twitter

The twitter account for @RunPee was voted into the top 60 Twitter profiles by theKbuzz.com – a social marking company. That’s something I’m very proud of. I’ve been a big Twitter fan for years. My person account is @polyGeek which I’ve had since February of 2007. Twitter is very important to the success of RunPee.com. […]

Movie review : I can do bad all by myself

I can do bad all by myself I can do bad all by myself is a well told story filled with a good number of laughs, some amazing song and dance, and wonderful performances from the entire cast. I noticed that most of the laughs come in the first half of the film. As the […]

Movie review : Whiteout

Whiteout Writing reviews for average movies are the most difficult. So this will be a hard review to write. The one thing that inspires me to make this a slightly better than average movie is Kate Beckinsale performance. She did just about everything that could be done with her part. She’s a fine actress and […]

Movie review : 9

9 [ No Spoilers ] Although this film drips with Tim Burton’s style he was only the producer and not the writer/director as he is with many of his films. Shane Acker is the director and the creator of the original story. So kudos to Shane for making such a outstanding film on his first […]

Summer 09 Movie Recap

Now that the summer movie season is over – because I say so – it’s time to recap. USA Today reports that the season started out with a bang but withered at the end. Overall Hollywood brought in just a little more this year than last, but adjusting for ticket prices the attendance was actually […]

But though he saved it doesn’t mean the movie survives in perfect health. Far from it. If this movie were embodied in human form it would be […]

Movie review : All About Steve

All About Steve I must confess that one of the reasons I enjoyed All About Steve is that Mary’s character – played by Sandra Bullock – is a lot like my wife. So I’ll admit that I have a bit of a prejudice for the film. That aside the film was rather bland. There was […]

Movie review : Extract

Extract Since Extract billed itself as the funniest movie of the summer I think I have grounds to demand a refund based on false advertising. I think The Hangover wins that title hands down, or is that hands together? 🙂 I’m not saying Extract was a bad movie. It just didn’t quite get over the […]

Movie review : Taking Woodstock

Taking Woodstock To me one of the most important aspects of a film is the pacing. Ang Lee is a masterful director and you can see his handywork here. I can’t think of another film that used pacing as a part of the story so effectively. The movie is very slow to get started. But […]
