Superheroes & Action

  • Stuber vs Uber – Welcome to the Ratings Game, in Real Life Well, it’s official. We’ve had an action movie about Uber driving. I suppose the next film will be a thriller about a couple in for trouble at an Air BnB. 🙂 It’s a sign of the times for sure. I’ve been using Uber almost exclusively to get to movies for RunPee ...
  • Avengers: Endgame Re-Release Extra Footage Explained In an attempt to knock Avatar (2009) off the Biggest Box Office high horse, the Marvel Cinematic Universe opened their vaults and added some extra footage to Avengers: Endgame in a ‘re-release’. Normally a re-release happens after a movie has been gone awhile, but with MCU fever still running high, Marvel ...
  • Spider-Man & Iron Man – Lyrics to Back in Black by AC/DC Starting way back in 2008 with Iron Man‘s use of I Am Iron-Man and, yes, Back in Black, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has never been shy of using classic rock hits in their superhero movies. While 2019’s Spiderman: Far From Home doesn’t have as many rocking songs as Spider-Man: Homecoming, ...
  • Movie Review – Crawl Due to a terrible mistake made by myself on opening night, I had to go back today and watch Crawl all over again. It didn’t get any better the second time around. I have lived in Florida for a number of years now and can empathize with the two characters in ...
  • Movie Review – Stuber After you watch Stuber, you’ll never look at your Uber driver the same way again. I’m a Uber consumer and could totally relate to this action comedy completely. Big burly LAPD Cop Vic Manning (Dave Bautista) has an unusual day after he has lasik surgery. Vic has been working on a ...
  • All Men In Black Films, Ranked To prep for Men In Black: International, I did a little series rewatch, and discovered a few things: the original movie is still fresh and funny, the second film still hurts to watch, and I totally forgot everything that happened in the third MIB outing. But that’s actually a good ...
  • First-View Movie Review – 47 Meters Down (2017) 47 Meters Down is a surprisingly decent shark movie. And it’s not even that scary – the horror level was low (and I’m a horror scaredy-cat, so trust me). What 47 Meters Down had going for it was a unique shark premise, and a gripping survival element. While the girls ...
  • Movie Review – Spider-Man: Far from Home – Fun, but a little underwhelming   I liked Spider-Man: Far From Home. I liked it a lot. But I didn’t love it, and that surprised me. I adore Tom Holland‘s version of Spider-Man, and think he’s the best Peter Parker ever done, no question. (Notice how this sidesteps Miles Morales‘ stunning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse quite nicely.) ...
  • Movie Review – Anna It appears that Luc Besson has fallen into the trap that has been the downfall of many a director; if it worked before, they’ll do it again, and oftentimes the end result is a disaster. Anna is not a disaster of a movie: the pacing was well done; but the writing, ...
  • Movie Review – Men in Black: International It isn’t that there’s much wrong with MiB International so much as there isn’t anything right about it: the humor is middling; the pacing is choppy; and the plot/character development is bland. I can’t complain about the acting. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson did good enough with what they had to ...
  • Movie Review – Shaft I loved Shaft, as did the entire audience based on the many, many times there was crazy laughter in the theater. I had a great time watching Sam do his thing. I have not seen the first one, but I can guarantee that I’ll be streaming it this weekend. If it’s ...
  • What Makes Men In Black Tick? Looking Back on the MIB Series and Why It Works Note: contains minor spoilers for the Men in Black trilogy Men In Black: International opens this week.  Now is as good a time as any to revisit the series and examine it.  What makes these films so successful?  What is their secret?  Let’s take a look at the original trilogy to ...
  • Men In Black Theme Song – Forget Me Nots Remix – Will Smith Lyrics & Video So, on the eve of viewing and getting Peetimes for the new Men In Black International (Men in Black 4), we thought we’d revisit Will Smith’s song from the original 1997 MIB.  The MIB theme song is a remix of the classic 1982 tune Forget Me Nots (a perfect song ...
  • Newie Review – The Reef – Low Budget, Decent, Non Campy Shark Movie This 2010 Aussie shark film should be fairly simple to review, as nothing much happened besides a lot of open ocean swimming. If you’re frightened easily and don’t like horror, don’t worry: you won’t have much trouble watching The Reef. It’s not that kind of movie. I’m not entirely clear ...
  • Newbie Movie Review – Suicide Squad (2016) Surprise, Surprise. Justice League is Actually a Good DC Flick Movie Truism: Maybe going into a movie with low expectations makes it better. I didn’t bother to see DC’s highly anticipated 2016 Suicide Squad in the theaters because it was so lowly-regarded among critics and viewers alike. So I just let ...
  • Avengers Endgame Song and Lyrics to Supersonic Rocketship Rock Music in the Marvel Cinematic Universe If you’re paying at all attention to the music during the already overcrammed events in Avengers Endgame, you’ll notice a few classic rock songs stand out. This technique’s been in play since Iron Man, but really ramped up with Guardians of the Galaxy and ...
  • Rewatch Movie Review – Stardust – A Great Vintage Fantasy Film “A philosopher once asked, “Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?” Pointless, really…”Do the stars gaze back?” Now that’s a question.” And with those opening lines we are immediately enchanted by the world of “Stardust” (2007). And enchanting is ...
  • Want to be a MIB? A Satirical Review of the Original Men in Black (1997) *Flash* Everyone listen now: what you may think you just experienced is a house party with drunk teenagers and a crazy, lonely lady. In actuality, you traveled back in time 22 years to help us, the Men in Black, save the galaxy from an alien invasion. We’re looking for some new ...
  • First View Movie Review – Jumanji (1995) Adoring as I do Jumanji 2: Welcome to the Jungle — my favorite film of 2017 — I looked forward to finally watching the original Jumanji with Robin Williams. My understanding was the game updates itself for its era, meaning the 1995  game would be a vintage style board game ...
  • Movie Review – X-Men: Dark Phoenix The X-Men Universe, produced by 20th Century Fox,  had a twenty year run. Now that it’s over, they should be applauded for the influence they’ve had on the superhero movie genre. Fox movie assets are now owned by Disney. That means the X-Men can, at some point, be wrapped into the ...
  • A Godzilla Newbie Watches King of the Monsters Having not seen any of the previous Godzilla movies, I’m not sure what I was expecting going in to see this 4th film. I had no notion what was coming, other than ‘large monsters destroying cities’. The beginning of the movie does a fair job filling the viewer in to ...
  • Every X-Men Film Explained Dark Phoenix marks the 12th film in the X-Men franchise.  While there is still one more X-Men film in the can, this will be our last journey with this set of characters.  Now that Disney owns both Fox and Marvel, they will supposedly reboot the franchise at some point and ...
  • All Modern Godzilla Movies, Ranked I’m not a die-hard Godzilla fan, but I’ve gone on a bit of a giant lizard binge-watch lately. I’m happy to admit Godzilla: King of the Monsters is the best one yet. Not only did the big beasties get plenty of screentime, but the people plots didn’t entirely suck. People and entire ...
  • Godzilla End Credits Song Remix By Serj Tankian Blue Oyster Cult is probably most famous for their song Godzilla.  It’s a must if you want to set the mood for seeing Godzilla: King of the Monsters. But, better yet, give a listen to the remix by Serj Tankian that plays in the movie as the credits roll. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lOO8Um_jmLI   https://runpee.com/godzilla-lyrics-and-video-from-blue-oyster-cult/ http://runpee.com/movie-review-godzilla-king-of-the-monsters/ Please share and ...
  • Movie Review – Godzilla: King of the Monsters Let’s face it, no one watches porn for the plot. Two barely dressed women order pizza and minutes later a buff young man knocks on the door. You know what happens next. Likewise, no one watches mega monster movies expecting Inception level plot twists. We watch to see monsters eff each ...
