Movie Review – The Prodigy – No Chemistry, No Creativity

The Prodigy was really disappointing. I’ve seen better movies at Billy Bob’s Drive-In Theater. This is another movie that did a wonderful job of making the trailer look too good to pass up. They got me hook, line and sinker. I was really excited waiting for the movie, then it started. Ten minutes into it, …

Movie Review – Miss Bala – Surprisingly Pleasant and Fun

I was pleasantly surprised by Miss Bala. It kept me interested and wondering what was going to happen. There were also some tense moments that had me on the edge of my seat. I didn’t see that coming. I was really dreading this movie, but had to eat my words when I walked out saying …

Movie Review – The Upside

The Upside was a mixture of heart and humor. (Pun intended.) Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston were superb together. The dynamics that developed between the two characters were so well acted that I didn’t want the movie to end. I just wanted to keep seeing these two guys growing and learning together. The laughs don’t …

Movie Review – Holmes & Watson

  Holmes and Watson was really disappointing. Being a huge fan of the Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly comedy duo, I was expecting more. A lot more. I know these guys are amazing together; I personally think this film was simply poorly written. The characters lacked a depth that made you care about them, …

Movie Review – The Favourite

The Favourite was an entirely different kind of movie. This period piece was raunchy, stylish, opulent and wicked all at the same time. Based on the previews I was excited to see it and it really delivered what I was hoping for. There was humor and a lot of it. I honestly can’t decide which …

Movie Review – The Possession of Hannah Grace

Hollywood pulled off another movie that actually had me a little bit afraid. I’ll say I was very tense during some scenes. That sure doesn’t happen very often anymore. They did an incredible job of setting the tone of this horror flick. The ambiance was perfect; it kept you on the edge of your seat, …

Movie Review – Green Book (It will touch your heart)

  Green Book was amazing! Everything about this movie was awesome. The acting, the story, the conclusion, it all had me seeing stars. I’ve not enjoyed a movie this much in a very long time. Every person in America needs to see this movie. It simply touched my heart in a way that movies haven’t …

Movie Review – The Front Runner

  I’m having a difficult time reviewing this movie. When I asked myself if I liked it, I had no answer. It bored me; it made me despise politicians even more, and now I think there is a lot of shadiness in journalism. Thanks, Hollywood. This movie is all about people doing whatever they want, …

Movie Review – Instant Family

  I apologize folks; this review is a little late. Yesterday we welcomed the newest member into the RunPee family. We are now the proud new parents of a Siberian Husky. She is an amazing addition to this quirky family. She now has a forever home and we will fill her life with love and …

Movie Review – Overlord

Overlord wasn’t bad; it wasn’t great but it definitely wasn’t bad. At moments it bordered on campy, and then would flow back into a shoot ’em up thriller. It reminded me of the video games my husband plays. It has that type of feel, not quite real, but with a storyline you hope ends up …
