  • How to be quiet watching A Quiet Place 2
    When I watched A Quiet Place in 2018, it was a movie EVENT. No one knew how good this film was going in, but the audience quickly realized that they had to be absolutely silent, or get killed by the deadly critters who can’t see, but will hunt you if ...
  • Is there anything extra during the end credits of Gretel & Hansel?

  • Movie Review – Gretel & Hansel
    Be advised, I, RunPee Mom, usually don’t do horror movies. That distinction belongs to RunPee Sis — however, she flaked out on me last night. So the task (one might even call it a burden in this case) fell to me. I’ll do my best to grade  Gretel & Hansel ...
  • Storyboarding for Horror – 7 Things to Remember
    Storyboarding is never an easy task, regardless of what film genre you’re working with. However, horror films require some very specific style choices (if you’re going down the more conventional horror route), which need to be reflected in your storyboard. If you’re looking for somewhere to start with your storyboard, you ...
  • Movie Rant – Why I hated Underwater
    I love Aliens and The Abyss; I’m a sucker for disaster and survival films, even if they aren’t wholly original. So, I was looking forward to watching Underwater. I caught it last night after rewatching Frozen 2 (and which I preferred to the original). But did I like Underwater? In a ...
  • Movie Review – The Turning
    I really wanted to like The Turning. There were so many great aspects I should have loved it, but no. It was okay at best. The stand-out feature of this movie was Finn Wolfhard. He was simply amazing. This kid can act. He shined in the movie It, and sparkled with ...

  • Is the girl from A Quiet Place deaf in real life?
    Is the girl from A Quiet Place deaf in real life? In a word, yes. The girl, aptly played by Millicent Simmonds, is deaf and speaks American Sign Language. And she’ll definitely be in the follow-up film, but presumably older, wiser, and quieter. Representing Disability in A Quiet Place Actor-director John Krasinski ...
  • A Real Conversation with my Passive-Aggressive Alexa
    A conversation I had with my Amazon Alexa device today proves computers can have hurt feelings and a passive-aggressive nature. Follow this dialog… And no, I’m not making any of it up: Me: Alexa, play All the Stars from Black Panther. Alexa: I cannot play All the Stars unless you purchase — Me: ...
  • Unfaithful Horror Movie Adaptations
    Horror movie The Turning opens January 24.  Aware moviegoers may notice the connection to the Henry James novel The Turn of the Screw.  However, aside from a basic premise (a nanny is terrorized by her two charges), the film has little to do with the book it’s based on.  This ...
  • Critic Movie Reviews v RunPee Family Reviews
    Not having professional or writer-educated staff (besides First Officer/COO Jill Florio, who was a journalist and magazine editor back when people still had real jobs), RunPee’s reviews are written from the heart, and are hopefully more useful than what we get from the well-paid critics of Rotten Tomatoes…  Because we ...
  • Movie Review – Underwater
    Underwater was much better than I was expecting. I had fun watching it;  they definitely did a great job with the suspense. I took my granddaughter with me and she whispered the funniest thing to me half way through. She says, “Don’t worry Grandma, I’m not gonna ask you to ...

  • Movie Review – The Grudge
    The Grudge didn’t impress me at all. It was a cool story but it was told all wrong. Before I get into everything I felt was wrong with it, my one compliment: there are chilling moments. A few times the hair on my neck stood up. It had potential. My biggest ...
  • A History of The Grudge – from Japan to America (and every remake in the franchise)
    The Grudge hits theaters January 3.  It’s been fourteen years since the 2004 American remake, also titled The Grudge, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.  This horror franchise has had a long history in Japan and America.  So here’s a deep dive into the story of The Grudge. Origin of the Series Director Takashi ...
  • Movie Review – Black Christmas
      I was so excited to find out I was going to get to see Black Christmas on Friday the 13th! It’s always been a lucky day for me, until today. Today …that trend ended. I was so disappointed with Black Christmas. Let me first state that I have not seen the ...
  • 6 Classic Sci-Fi Movies You Can’t Afford to Miss
    The medium of film is a Holy Grail for science fiction fans: you can simply point to Avengers: Endgame and Arrival for some of its more recent eventful samplings. But the triumphs go much further back. Indeed, from I am Legend to Blade Runner, the silver screen’s preserved some of ...
  • What is the best all-time series franchise?
    So many movie franchises, so little time. While it’s easy for producers to add yet another movie to any long-running series, it’s not so easy to have every one of them qualify as good, quality films. And in some series, all are decent, but none are outstanding. How to decide ...
  • Spoiler-iffic Review of Terminator – Dark Fate
    Please don’t read this review if you haven’t seen Terminator: Dark Fate yet. You’ve now been warned. So, I did a story where I neatly ranked every Terminator film from 1984 through 2015, and they slot themselves perfectly by year. As in the first being the best, T2 coming close on ...
  • The 5 Best and Worst Films of Tom Hanks
    There’s something so satisfying about the idea of Tom Hanks playing children’s TV show host Mr. Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.  Who can resist one of America’s favorite actors playing one of America’s most beloved TV icons?  And I know Mr. Rogers was beloved because every time ...
  • Movie Review – Doctor Sleep
    I’ll admit to being a bit dubious about coming to see this. Be honest… Did you think The Shining needed a sequel? Or worse still, something that just seemed to be using the name to attract bums on seats? In my defense, I know nothing about the alternative comic book ...
  • Movie Review – Motherless Brooklyn
      It seems clear a lot of critics like this movie. I’ll go along with this to an extent — it’s clearly a labor of love for Edward Norton, who not only managed every aspect of the film and starred in it, but did some excellent research on the mental illness ...
  • Ranking the Terminator Movies
    Well, cool, I just rewatched the entire run of Terminator movies and realized it will be easier to rank them in order of greatness than I thought. For each movie (I’ll get to the TV show later), the best to worst go in order of first to last created. That ...
  • Movie Review – Countdown
      Countdown was a fun little flick. I enjoyed it — there were some scare moments balanced with just enough humor to add to its overall balance. In today’s world, we are all attached to our phones. They’ve become an extension of our hands. In Countdown, they become your own personal countdown ...
  • Movie Review – The Lighthouse
      It’s no secret I have issues with A24 productions. I have seen them all. I go in with an open mind — and every time but twice I’ve hated them. Spring Breakers and Tusk get a free pass; those entertained me. When I saw the trailers for The Lighthouse, I was ...
