Rewatch Review – Mission: Impossible II (2000)

Sometimes things are very finely balanced. One little nudge and things all fall apart all over the place. Such is sometimes the way with the casting of films and Mission: Impossible II is no exception. For example, the role of Mission Commander Swanbeck was originally offered to Ian McKellen. He turned it down due to […]

Movie Review – Transformers: Rise of the Beasts

Heads up, I’ve read over my review and I’d give it a C-. (Not the movie; this review gets a C-.) I ranted way too much for a movie that I didn’t hate. Sometimes I just can’t help myself. MacGuffins It shouldn’t come as any big surprise that this movie feels like it was assembled […]

Movie Review – About My Father

About My Father is a cute meet-the-parents type of comedy. These movies seem to roll off Robert DeNiro’s tongue without him even trying. Is it as funny as Meet the Fockers? No, but it was still a fun way to spend the afternoon. The story itself is a pretty old one, but what made this […]

Movie Review – Mafia Mamma

I had so much fun watching Mafia Mamma. This movie was outrageously funny. Toni Collette gave her best performance ever. You see the real her. The laughs and smiles she gives are deep down and pure. I wanted to be her! She discovered herself in such a fashion that I asked my Mom if we maybe […]

Movie Review – Renfield

Surprise surprise. A comedy that was funny. It doesn’t feel like that happens very often these days. At least not as often as I would like. There were many LOLs in this movie and I absolutely cackled once. (When we see the x-ray view of Renfield’s roundhouse kick.) And of course, every moment of Nick […]

Movie Review – Paint

I did not want to see this movie. I guess it could have been worse, at least I wasn’t dreading it. From the trailer, it looked like a mildly amusing, comedy. Plus it’s a short 90-minute movie, so at least I wouldn’t have to sit through a long snoozer. Once the movie started it didn’t […]

Movie Review – The Super Mario Bros. Movie

Children and adults will enjoy this little movie. I’m about to turn 50, and this flick took me back to my childhood. The Nintendo was the coolest thing to have, my friends would come over and we’d play Super Mario Brothers for hours listening to music. They nailed the soundtrack. The music took me back […]

Movie Review – Air

As an 80s kid, this was a great throwback to my teenage years. That might have been the most enjoyable part of the movie for me. Not that I didn’t enjoy all of it, but there’s not a whole lot to get worked up about. I found it to be enjoyable, but I didn’t love […]

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, […]
