F Movies – What films FAIL at RunPee

The dreaded F. These are the abominations littering the sticky cinema screening floor. They waste everyone’s time and money — whether it’s the production studio, the actors or director, the poor crew, and (especially) the viewers. Could they be any worse?

How movies earn an A Grade at RunPee

We consider an A, any A, from – to +, to be the best a movie in its genre has to offer. And while we sometimes — especially in long-running franchises — grade on a curve, we believe an A movie fulfills our expectations of a feature film of its type. So while all movies […]

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 […]
