Forget life for a while and watch all 9 episodes of Star Wars… AT ONCE

Thank you Internet, for once again delivering something new and distracting for us. Watch this YouTube video of a nine screen split of Star Wars episodes I – IX. It’s crazy!

Disease Expert Breaks Down Pandemic Scenes From Film & TV

This is a great scene breakdown of pandemic movies by a CDC expert. What Brian Amman had to say about procedures and equipment was enlightening.

SKYWATCH — a Sci-Fi Short on YouTube starring Jude Law

Every Type of Starship and Starfighter in Star Wars, Explained

It’s kind of interesting when this happens: I come up with an idea for a RunPee article, start my research, and then find someone made an entire video with more detail and authority then I ever could.

The 6 Most Epic Lightsaber Fights in Star Wars (plus 3 that didn’t make the cut)

So many Star Wars movies. So many lightsaber and “lightsaber-adjacent” fight scenes over 42 years. Which saber duels are the best, the most visually stunning, or emotionally moving? I don’t know much about sword technique (<—- we wrote about that here) beyond endlessly watching Lord of the Rings or Xena: Warrior Princess, but I know […]
