Spare Parts – movie review

Grade: B Initially I regarded this movie as predictable and a typical formula flick. However, it went a few steps beyond predictable. George Lopez, Jamie Lee Curtis and Marisa Tomei were very good and quite believable in their rolls, but the real stars were the four young actors that made up the science team. [ […]

American Sniper – movie review

Grade: A- Just when I thought Bradley Cooper was a great actor he turns in a performance like this one and and makes me consider that he’s a *really* great actor. It seems like every movie I see him in he does something different and keeps doing it at a high level. There are many […]

2014 year in review

This has been the most financially successful year in RunPee history. I think we’re in good shape to be around for a long time to come. The biggest personal news is that I bought a house! RunPee HQ is now located in Swannanoa, North Carolina — just outside of Asheville. Here’s a picture from the […]

Are Peetimes just the boring bits of a movie?

Many people assume that the Peetimes we pick for movies are just the boring bits. That’s certainly true for some Peetimes but not all. A more accurate description of Peetimes in general would be: the parts of a movie that are easiest to summarize without the viewer missing anything crucial to the story. Of course that’s a […]

John Wick – movie review

Grade B+ I loved the movie John Wick; it was violent without being gory. What I liked most about the movie was the choreography of the action scenes. I’ve seen my share of action movies and I must say that the action in John Wick is top notch. That shouldn’t come as a surprise because […]

Gone Girl – movie review

B+ This isn’t exactly my favorite genre. Still, I loved 98% of this movie but I don’t want to say which 2% of the movie I didn’t like because that might spoil some things for you and I’d hate myself for that because this is a really good movie — except for the part that […]

The Equalizer – movie review

Grade: A+ First, let’s go over everything that’s wrong with this movie… Okay, now that we have that out of the way… Seriously, there’s nothing wrong; the acting, action, plot, story, characters, pacing, et al., are all spot on. This is the best action movie I can remember seeing since the original Bourne Identity. All […]

Maze Runner – movie review

Grade: D The movie itself was mediocre — not good or bad. Likewise with the acting. The entire cast is comprised of young inexperienced actors who do an average job — which isn’t a bad thing. No one stood out as great but at the same time no one stood out as horrible. The best […]

The November Man – movie review

Grade: B+ November Man is a very good movie, compared to other movies in the genre. But lets face it, the spi-thriller genre is heavily littered with disappointments. Being better than average in this genre isn’t a steep hill to climb. I happen to enjoy this genre pretty well. Thinking back to fairly recent movies […]

When The Game Stands Tall – movie review

Grade: B- This isn’t a movie for movie fans; it’s a movie for football fans, so that’s how I’m going to review it. (Because I am — Roll Tide!) There was a high school football team in the theater with me when I watched the movie. They seemed to enjoy the movie and there were […]
