Classic Christmas Rewatch – Home Alone (1990)

So I’ve been thinking about my favorite Christmas movie category – the ones I call Non-Christmas Christmas Films. This fun category includes such classics as Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, and Gremlins. Iron Man 3. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. I have a useful list going here. But in that post, I ask if Home Alone deserves […]

Classic Movie Rewatch – Raiders Of The Lost Ark after 40 years

What links a toilet cistern, fingering a cheese casserole, a Honda Civic rolling down a gravel path, whacking a pile of leather jackets with a baseball bat, and R2-D2? They’re all sound effects used during the production of Raiders Of The Lost Ark. The toilet cistern is the sound of the lid of the Ark of […]

30th Birthday Rewatch – Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves (1991)

As an Englishman, you might think that I’d have the story of Robin Hood engraved upon my heart. The sad fact is that, while I can vaguely remember some details of the history of England going back to the Roman Invasion of 55BC led by Gaius Julius Caesar, I don’t remember any facts about Robin […]

James Bond Rewatch – Goldfinger (1965)

Jill, Rob, and I are reviewing the entire James Bond series in celebration and anticipation of Daniel Craig’s final Bond outing No Time to Die.  When Jill, Rob, and I did a draft to divide up the Bond reviews, this movie was my first choice.  I picked last and was surprised it was still available.  […]

Classic Movie Review – The Milagro Beanfield War

The Milagro Beanfield War is a movie everyone should see to be delighted, laugh a lot, cry a little, and have a two hour cinematic fiesta. It’s chock full of chemistry between almost everyone, in a cast that encompasses an entire town, from children to the elderly. In fact, it’s the elders who steal the […]

New Year Rewatch Review – Sunset Boulevard

Sunset Boulevard, if you haven’t already seen it, is a scathing, withering attack on the morals and mores of mid-twentieth century Hollywood. And Hollywood wasn’t best pleased. Following an advance screening for the industry bigwigs, Louis B Meyer was apoplectic and tore into director Billy Wilder thusliwise… “You befouled your own nest. You should be […]

New Years Eve First View Movie Review: Four Rooms

There’s no mistaking Four Rooms for anything other than a New Year film… it actually starts to the strains of Auld Lang Syne! Basically, Four Rooms is a quartet of stories set in the Hotel Mon Signor on New Years Eve. Each segment is directed by a different director with a, mainly, different cast. Running through […]

RunPee’s Big Annual Christmas Movie Review List

Each year at RunPee we get a little closer to reviewing all the Christmas films — at least, all of the good and/or notorious ones that popular culture appreciates. One year I tried to take on some Hallmark Christmas movies and found I couldn’t quite go that far down the sickly sweet rabbithole, but that […]

Classic Movie Rewatch Review – Die Hard

Die Hard is, without doubt, a cracking action film. A Christmas film though? Well, it has a weary traveller, a pregnant woman, gifts, and celebrates the value of family and the spirit of friendship. Add to those the soundtrack, the fact it takes place at an office party (a real one, mind, one with a jerk […]

Classic Movie Rewatch Review – Trading Places

I’ve lost count of the number of times that I’ve watched Trading Places over the years, and not always as a Christmas film. It’s a comedy first and foremost, then it’s a social satire, and only then is it a holiday film. For the sake of the half dozen or so people who haven’t seen it, […]
