Movie review: Thoroughbreads

After the movie I knew that I was not the target audience. I didn’t care for Thoroughghbreds. I’m sure there was a point to the movie, or some message that I just didn’t get. It’s hard for me to critique the pacing and directing, since I didn’t understand what the writer and or the director […]

Movie review: Sampson

It saddens me to have to give a movie about one of the greatest stories from the Bible such a poor grade, but Samson was so poorly made — I was compelled to give it a failing grade. The direction was sub par, the pacing was tedious, and the acting was an insult to the actual […]

My theater was packed with parents and children alike, making it difficult to know who was laughing the […]

Movie review: Alien: Covenant

Here at RunPee we make a concerted effort to get the reviews for blockbuster movies up by Friday morning. Unfortunately, this week my heart just wasn’t in it. Not because I didn’t care for the movie, but because my heart was being poked and prodded by a team of professionals who didn’t care that I […]

Movie Review – Molly’s Game

80% from Rotten Tomatoes says it all. If you’ve ever thought to yourself, ‘I’d really like to learn to play poker, but there’s no one to teach me’…then just watch this movie: it’s a two hour tutorial on how to play, and how not to try earning a living from this volatile game. I’ve been […]
