  • Sorry YA movies that never finished their franchises
    I’m the member of the RunPee family who LOVES the YA (young adult) Dystopian/Fantasy genre. Harry Potter is still an obsession for me (and I’m 50). I re-read The Hunger Games every year, and watch the franchise even more. I even think Twilight was decent, although The Host was better. So, what’s ...
  • Movie Review – The Darkest Minds
    Here is yet another Young Adult Dystopian film that feels a lot like many others that came out of last decade’s love affair with young people who are either 1. the Chosen Ones or who have 2. Superpowers. Sometimes both apply. These characters even ask themselves what Harry Potter characters ...
  • Everything Wrong With The Jurassic Movies (YouTube series)
    YouTube has some ongoing series related to movies that are so clever and fun, like the Honest Trailers, or How It Should Have Ended. Here we have the Everything Wrong With shorts (each about 15 minutes). These are funny and insightful, and if some of the nits they pick are ...
  • Movie Review – Hotel Artemis
    This is one stylish mess. It’s got the noir notes, the off-kilter sensibilities, and a big muddled stew of a plot. Let me mull on this review a bit. Movie Grade: C+ Alrighty. After due thought, I still think Hotel Artemis is trying for something it just didn’t reach. But I’ve got a ...
  • A Quiet Place – Movie Analysis with SPOILERS
    I thoroughly enjoyed A Quiet Place, even though I can’t do horror movies. But, you know what? A Quiet Place isn’t really straight-up horror — or more accurately, it’s a sub-unit of such: scary suspense. And those are perfectly fine viewing for movie-goers who don’t enjoy being frightened witless or ...
  • A Quiet Place 2 Announced
    Shhhhhhhh. No, really, don’t make a sound. Not even when we announce that A Quiet Place has a sequel scheduled already! (Confirmed by Paramount.) A Quiet Place offers an interesting concept for movie-going – people constantly report that their theaters were dead silent. Through the whole movie. Apparently this is a ...
  • Movie Review – Isle of Dogs
    Do see Isle of Dogs if it comes anywhere near your theater. It’s creative and quirky, with a great voiceover cast of big stars…and this is honestly something I haven’t seen before. Everyone in the production really pulled out a stylish little film. There are moments in this stop-animation tale ...
  • Movie Review – A Quiet Place (Spoiler-free)
    It is truly amazing this movie is able to pack so much into so little. It’s a short movie, only 1:23 not counting the credits, and yet it feels like two hours. And there’s barely enough dialog to fill a sheet of paper: it feels like we know every character’s ...
  • Movie Review -Ready Player One
    Ready Player One: a likable, but not lovable movie. I think the writers figured the target audience (teenagers) aren’t mature enough to notice the clichés and the older crowd would be placated with the numerous 80’s pop culture references. (OMG, that’s ...
  • Movie Review – Pacific Rim: Uprising
    I loved the first Pacific Rim. (PR1) Okay, to be honest, I wasn’t crazy about it right off the bat, but it did grow on me. I’ve probably rewatched it a dozen times, here and there, over the years. It’s a great movie to have on in the background while ...
  • Movie review: The Strangers: Prey at Night
    The Strangers: Prey At Night…where to begin? Let’s start off on a positive note. I’m fairly convinced the makers of this movie fully intended on wanting you to hate the lead female role. Boy,oh boy, they nailed that one. Her character made my blood pressure rise. I was rooting for ...
  • Movie review: Annihilation
    This movie does a good job of creating an atmosphere of mystery. It feels like it’s going somewhere profound, but just ends up being bizarre and cliche. This movie felt a lot like the movie Arrival. It builds mysteriously and there are lots of flashbacks. But where the ending of Arrival was, for ...
  • Movie Review: Maze Runner – The Death Cure
    I’m a huge fan of dystopian stories, and I liked the first Maze Runner book and film (the one that had an actual maze and runners). It was a fresh and intriguing idea. I didn’t see the second, and I was definitely lost in this third movie. Maybe the story ...
  • Movie Rewatch Review — Titanic
    Is there any movie more touching and exciting than Titanic? And the first time you watch it, it’s completely unexpected. I didn’t even want to see this in the theater, and resisted for months. Fool that I am, I figured, “Yeah, it sinks. I know what happens. Why see it? I ...
  • Movie Review – The Terminator
    The Terminator is one of the truly perfect films in the science fiction genre. Sure, there are temporal paradox/causality loop issues, but you have to handwave that and go along with the premise. And why not? If you’re going to tell a time travel story about what happens when the ...
  • Movie Review – Happy Death Day – Very Fun, Almost Cute Horror Film
    I was really surprised with this movie. I thought it was going to be totally predictable and played out. They surprised me; it was really good. I loved how the same day would start over and over again. You’d think that it would get boring, but the way they kept ...
  • Blade Runner: 2049 review
    Blade Runner 2049 was almost an awesome movie. It was a worthy sequel that felt “right”, like settling in after a long break (of actual decades — in both real and movie time) to catch up on old events. Even the new characters seemed to carry echoes of previous incarnations. ...
  • Movie Review – It (Chapter 1)
    Normally RunPee Sis sees the horror films like this, but since she lives in Orlando she’s in hurricane prep mode right now — her own horror movie. So I’ve been pressed into duty. Both the critics (90%) and users (92%) at RottenTomatoes.com gave this movie high marks. Personally, I was a ...
  • Movie Review – Life
    I don’t even know how to rate this one. For the record, I absolutely hated it. I’m even the target audience, according to the trailers, as I LOVE science fiction and space movies. However, you should all know this is a straight body horror film, with gristly, gruesome, and horrific ...
  • Movie Review – Edge of Tomorrow (Live. Die. Repeat.)
    I love Groundhog Day stories and I’ve been looking forward to this movie since the first time I saw the previews. I was *hoping* it would rank as one of the classic Sci-Fi movies. However, I expected it would just be a good movie that might be worth rewatching again ...
  • Movie Review – Mortal Instruments
    If you loved the book, Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones, then you’ll love the movie. I base this on the fact that there was a smattering of applause at the end of the movie coming from a group of people who all sat together. They were the die-hard fans of ...
  • Movie Review – The Conjuring
    The Conjuring was by far the best scary movie I have seen since I was a little girl. At one point I was wishing for my blanket to cover my head and hide my eyes with. I do not have one bad thing to say abut this movie. It was ...
  • Movie Review – The Lords of Salem
    The Lords of Salem, written and directed by Rob Zombie, definitely made it to my top 5 list along with Devils Rejects. However, this movie, with Zombie’s morbidly delicious way of thinking, is not going to be for the general public. It was visually assaulting. Rob Zombie imagined the witches as ...
  • Movie review : Texas Chainsaw 3D
    I was pleasantly surprised with the latest attempt at the Texas Chainsaw phenomenon. Being ruled by the darker side of my personality I find it almost impossible to pass up these movies. I wasn’t expecting much out of this one but I most definitely walked away pleased. Don’t get me ...
  • Movie review: Paranormal Activity 4
    I want to start off by saying the last thirty minutes of the movie is what made it watchable. I enjoyed those few minutes. My legs were in a constant state of chill bumps and I have to admit my hands flew up to my face of their own accord ...
