  • Warning – Avengers Endgame is not going to be Peetime friendly You might be surprised to learn that finding Peetimes in a movie isn’t the hardest part of the RunPee job. Ofttimes we find great Peetimes but get stuck on picking out the best Peetime Cue: a brief line of dialog — or description of some action — that stands out ...
  • Avengers Infinity War – Whose Fault is the Snap? So…let’s think a bit. Whose fault is the Avengers Infinity War Snap? Why am I, and half the universe, dead? Gone to ashes. The Avengers most to blame, who come to mind right away are: Star Lord — Mainly just a normal human with specialized combat melee skills. Peter Quill is just ...
  • A Open Response to Kevin Feige (re: Using the Bathroom During Endgame) Dear Mr. Feige, We here at RunPee love Marvel movies more than Nick Fury loves cats. And flerkens.

So much so that we did two breakdowns of the first trailer: Avengers 4 Endgame – First Trailer Review A Slightly More Than Casual Fan’s Reaction to Avenger ...
  • Movie Review – The Incredible Hulk – Not Bad. Not MCU Good. Watch it and move on to better things…   I finally finished watching The Incredible Hulk last night. The big fight scene with The Abomination is awful. Looks terribly fake and is surprisingly boring. I wanted to skip the whole scene. My idea of a great Peetime is a terrible action sequence. #DontBoreMe I expect better from the MCU. But ...

  • A Happy Shazam Review – A delightful time in the DC universe (for once) I’d heard from the rest of the RunPee Family that Shazam was a disappointing remake, even though I had big hopes DC would finally put out a fun, lithe, winsome feature, with a superhero I could have fun with (unlike Batman, Supes and the rest of the grim gang). Sadly, ...
  • Movie Review – Hellboy – Wow. So, so, so bad. Going into the movie I didn’t expect much. The trailer looked promising, so I gave the movie a pre-movie rating of 75/100 in the Peeple’s Poll in the RunPee app. Right from the start the movie had problems. They launched directly into a voice-over narration — rarely a good choice. (I ...

  • Do you know what SHAZAM! Stands For? Shazam is not actually a name.  It’s not an expletive either, although shouting SHAZAM! sounds like one. Shazam is shorthand for various mythical gods and demi-gods who lend their immense powerful attributes to a chosen DC Champion. Do you know offhand who these mythological Shazam characters reference? Maybe you can guess. ...
  • Did YOU Survive The Snap? You may as well get this over with… It’s been a year ago now, at the end of Avengers: Infinity War.

  • Movie Review – Shazam! – Great for Tweens, Less So for Adults I’ll start by setting the context: I love action/superhero movies, but never read any comics. So, I’m basing this review strictly on how I see the movie, not how it compares to any other body of work. The Good: While I definitely didn’t like the movie, I’m sure young boys under 12 ...

  • The Matrix After 20 Years – A Retrospective: A Different Kind of Hero, a New Kind of Science Fiction The year was 1999 and all any sci-fi fan could think about was: finally, another Star Wars movie.

  • Movie Review – Us – Tons of Symbolism, Creepy, and a Great Time at the Movies I’m by no means a lover of horror movies anymore, but when Jordan Peele writes one, you can’t help but wonder what it will be like. His freshman movie, Get Out, was creepy enough to motivate me to see more from him. Us didn’t let me down. It’s a little ...
