Movie Analysis: A Deeper Look at Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat… Need I Say More? Wow. I’ve gotta start off saying I thoroughly enjoyed it. The acting may not have been top notch. Cole specifically… But the storyline was decent. The nostalgia was there. The corny humor sprinkled throughout. The finishes and fatalities…it was all worthwhile. There are spoilers below. Proceed with caution… . […]

Everything wrong with Wonder Woman 1984 and suggestions to fix it

    Wonder Woman 1984 (WW84) is an insult to storytelling. It’s popular to blame the writers and directors in cases like this, but I think it’s clear that the decision makers — asshats — at Warner Brothers are the real reason WW84 is so bad. There’s a great article over at ThePlaylist.com that goes […]

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 […]

How movies get C Grades at RunPee

To start with: a C grade isn’t considered a bad movie. It’s just not a good one. It’s average. It can be mediocre, vanilla, fluffy, lightweight, ponderous — or most condemning of all: boring. But in all, these are watchable films. And since every movie is somebody’s favorite, we try to look for the positive […]

What does the ending of JoJo Rabbit mean? (Spoilers)

So why do JoJo and Elsa share a silly dance at the end of JoJo Rabbit? What does this even mean? When JoJo returns home from the movie’s World War II Nazi adventures, he lets Elsa out of his huge empty house, competently — for once — lacing the red leather shoes she’s wearing. It’s […]

How do the movies in Star Wars stand up to the Bechdel test?

Do the characters in Star Wars — movies ostensibly depicting future lives and worlds — pass the Bechdel test? I was up too late one night and decided to think this through. What is the Bechdel test, you ask? It’s generally accepted as whether a work of fiction features at least two named women who […]

5 Older Movies We’d Love Remakes Of (And 5 That Are Perfect)

It is a truth universally acknowledged: a single movie in possession of a large following must be in want of a remake. At least, that’s how Hollywood executives seem to see things! Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the real truth is that remakes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. And that’s even understandable, to some extent. […]
