Movie Review – Operation Fortune: Ruse de guerre

Operation Fortune: Ruse de Guerre is a hefty title for a lightweight spy caper that’s a pure popcorn experience you’ll forget about by the next day. That’s not to say it’s a terrible movie that’s not worth the trip: my opening showing was unusually packed for a non-blockbuster, and people seemed to enjoy it. There […]

Puss in Boots: The Last Wish If you want to smile and feel jaunty, this is for you

As this is my last day in the UK with Rob, our RunPee correspondent over there, and I was excited to see a relaxing, soothing movie with himself and Alice (his cute granddaughter). I was thrilled with Puss in Boots: The Last Wish. After a stream of somewhat disappointing movies over my UK journey (The Fabelmans, […]

Movie Review – Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

Quantumania: unfortunately, I’m underwhelmed after so much build-up to getting on track with the main storyline, post-Thanos. Ant-Man isn’t the mightiest Avenger, but he was the MVP of Endgame, and his previous solo films were a ton of fun. I’m visiting our UK correspondent Rob Williams in Liverpool — and we found some great Peetimes […]

Movie Review – Magic Mike’s Last Dance

I am not the target audience for the Magic Mike movies, but I’ll admit this was far better than expected, story-wise. It wasn’t just about the soft porn and sexy dancing—although, yes, there was plenty of that. The story held together and had a little bit of humor with the butler, with some nice family […]


Movie Review – The Fabelmans

Self-indulgent, sentimental, and boring. I guess a lot of Christmas films are like that, and now we have one for Hanukkah. (I’m Jewish; please don’t send me hate mail.) The Fabelmans was presented to me as a story about Steven Spielberg, which piqued my interest. Unfortunately, this story was more about trains than adventure or […]

Movie Review – The Banshees of Inisherin

  The Banshees of Inisherin was a very good movie for being a slow burn, with not much happening. The sparse dialog was always compelling, the acting calibre outstanding — with the always reliable Brendan Gleeson and Colin Farrell shouldering the bulk — and the Irish Aran Island/Cliffs of Moher scenery was, well…spectacular doesn’t do […]

John Wick: Chapter 4 – What You Need To Know

John Wick returns! Personally, I can’t wait. If they keep up the standard of the first three I’d be happy to see this franchise running as long as the James Bond one! Who is John Wick? John Wick is (was) a retired hit man. He was an exceptionally good one. Liam Neeson thought he had […]

Dune: Part 2 – What You Need To Know About the Dune Sequel

When Dune came out in 2021 it was to favourable reviews. It earned $401.8m against a spend of $165m despite being released during the tail end of the COVID-19 pandemic. Those two factors were enough to guarantee a sequel. What is Dune: Part 2? Fairly obviously, it is a direct sequel to Dune. This time […]

MCU Eternals Actor Harry Styles – What You Need To Know

The news broke over the weekend that Harry Styles has landed a “$100m five film deal” as part of the MCU. Now I’m taking this news with a humongous pinch of salt because it was announced in two papers; one was the Daily Mail, which is famously untruthful, and the other was Metro, a free […]
