What I Saw During the 2021 Sundance Film Festival

I recently got to attend the 2021 Sundance Film Festival online.  It was a wonderful experience.  I got to see an array of unique films. and discover some new favorites.  While I’ll be posting reviews of my favorite films from the festival, it would be impossible to review everything I experienced.  Here, though, is a […]

10 Shows To Watch If You Like Bridgerton

Netflix’s Bridgerton is one of the most popular shows today and the number of people who don’t know about the show is quite small. Bridgerton is a TV series set during the Regency era of Britain’s history and follows the private lives of the British high society. Although the concept is not completely original, this […]

Indie Movie Review – Werewolf (Wilkołak)

I’m ashamed to say that I know very little about Poland. I know nothing about the arts, the culture, the history, or the people. I once knew a woman of Polish descent, but that would be a bit like me saying I’m of German descent… theoretically true, but practically pointless. All I know for sure […]

First View Movie Review – Gosford Park

Ah, yes… a British historical drama set in the early twentieth century created and written by Julian Fellowes. Oh… hang on… that’s Downton Abbey. Gosford Park is, in fact, a British historical drama set in the early twentieth century created and written by Julian Fellowes… bugger.  I’m being whimsical. There are similarities between the two works and for […]

Hitchhiking to the Edge of Sanity

Indie Documentary Review – Hitchhiking to the Edge of Sanity

hentHitchhiking to the Edge of Sanity is a testament to the insanity of youth. Like the midlife crisis that a lot of people go through there is also a quarter life crisis which kicks in around the late teens/early twenties. For a lot of us that coincides with disappearing off to college, ideally on the other […]

Indie Documentary Review – J.R. ‘Bob’ Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius

First glance at J.R. ‘Bob’ Dobbs and the Church of the SubGenius and I thought I was in for a satirical comedy at the expense of the multifarious religious groups that proliferate in the USA. Then I thought it was going to be a documentary about one of those weird denominations and its congregation. Turns out that J.R. […]

Hobbitses – A Tolkien history – Behind the Lord of the Rings in epic fantasy films

  Typical! Wait decades for a film with hobbits in, and six come along at the same time! At least, that’s how it felt. Like many teens of the time, I had my copy of the single volume paperback edition of The Lord Of The Rings, shortly after it was first published in 1968, having […]

1917-trenches

Movie review from a history teacher – 1917

As a History teacher, Historical reenactor and writer, I have VERY high standards for movies that claim to be historical or even based on actual events. When I critique a movie that has a historical premise, I ask a few questions: does this movie have useful information, as well as being entertaining; can I show […]

Critic Movie Reviews v RunPee Family Reviews

Not having professional or writer-educated staff (besides First Officer/COO Jill Florio, who was a journalist and magazine editor back when people still had real jobs), RunPee’s reviews are written from the heart, and are hopefully more useful than what we get from the well-paid critics of Rotten Tomatoes…  Because we send RunPee family members who […]

Documentary Review – Won’t You Be My Neighbor

Everyone’s saying the Tom Hanks Mr. Rogers movie is great and I definitely plan to see it this Thanksgiving week. I remember loving “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” as a child, with the trolley and the cute puppet kingdom…but haven’t given the show another thought as the decades passed. Then 2018’s documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor […]
