  • What are the First Three Minutes (a Running Late Feature) in the RunPee App? One of the lesser-known but most uniquely useful features of the RunPee movie app is the 1st 3 Minutes (aka the Running Late Feature) explanation of each wide release movie we see while getting Peetimes. And seriously, we see 150+ films a year for the app, so if you’re worried ...
  • Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker in 4D Somehow at the 2019 San Diego Comic Con I scored a free Regal Cinemas 4D movie ticket, handed to me by Dan Fogelberg — Jacob Kowalski himself — from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I decided the best possible use of this golden ticket was a 4D showing ...
  • The Trouble With Doctor Dolittle Dolittle is Robert Downey Jr.’s first movie to be released after his triumphant turn as Iron Man in Avengers: Endgame.  (C’mon, Academy.  Don’t let me down.  Nominate him!)  Unfortunately, the trailer looks less than stellar.  In fact, Hollywood doesn’t have the best record when it comes to adaptations of Hugh ...
  • Two Must See Science Fiction Spoof Film Documentaries (plus: the most ‘inconceivable’ parody of a spoof) It’s hard to make a decent movie spoof for a beloved franchise, and being in the science fiction genre doesn’t make things any easier.

  • Who appears in every Star Wars movie? Do you know who appears in every Star Wars film? It used to be easy to answer this: until Solo, R2-D2 and C-3PO were in every film, even if just a short cameo, as in Rogue One. But squeezing them into Solo would have been pure fan-service and narratively unnecessary. We ...
  • Star Wars Meets Star Trek – Holdo’s Last Jedi Sacrifice is the Picard Maneuver The coolest move in The Last Jedi depicted Admiral Holdo’s Resistance flagship making a super short hyperspace jump to destroy the First Order’s dreadnought. It’s a great tactic, if suicidal. And it worked. But if you’re a science fiction nut, you’ve seen this move before. Star Trek Remember the Picard Maneuver in Star ...
  • 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 ...
  • Never Surrender – A Galaxy Quest Retrospective I just smiled my ass off for 95 minutes. And you will too, if you’ve loved Galaxy Quest since it premiered in 1999. I’ve been telling everyone in earshot for decades that Galaxy Quest is one of the best “Star Trek” movies ever made. It was kind of fun to ...

  • Disney announces release dates for upcoming MCU Phase 4 movies and Disney+ shows Okay, deep breath.

  • Ray McKinnon in Ford v Ferrari – where have I seen him before? The actor Ray McKinnon plays Phil Remington in Ford v Ferrari — Le Mans ’66 for those on the right side of the Atlantic. Ray McKinnon may not be a household name — I had to look him up myself — but I recognized him straight away when I saw him because he ...
  • The Essential Kristen Stewart – Her Best Films The Charlie’s Angels reboot comes out soon, starring one of my favorite actresses: Kristen Stewart.  She began acting at age eight and has nineteen years of experience under her belt, giving her quite a resume.  So for anyone who wants to catch up on her career before the new movie, ...
  • A Buffy Revival – Vampires Spike and Angel Could Absolutely Do a Movie Note the following: David Boreanaz says he’s done playing Angel. Joss Whedon (creator, writer, editor, director, minor deity) has also said he’d make a Buffy movie if the heavens willed it so. We think David would return with the right offer. With Bones finished, isn’t he free now? And I don’t ...
  • Terminator TV Series: The Carlenator Ahoy there. Spoilers for Terminator: Dark Fate ahead! Terminator: Dark Fate isn’t blowing the doors off the box office. It opened with a slightly disappointing weekend of $29 million: $1 million below expectations. In fact, the past three Terminator movies (Salvation, Genisys, and Dark Fate) all failed to meet box office ...
  • Genetically modified mosquitoes coming soon to a theater near you Genetic scientists in Italy are using CRISPR to genetically modify mosquitoes so that they can’t transmit malaria. (Watch the 5 minute video below for details.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYAhyyLS8Rw How long before someone uses this as the basis for a movie about mosquitoes mistakenly modified to grow to the size of a pterodactyl? I’m calling it ...
  • Is Joker a standalone or part of the DC Extended Universe? The Joker (played by Joaquin Phoenix), is a standalone origin story, set in 1981 Gotham City, which tells the story of how the character Arthur Fleck , a failed stand-up comedian, turns to a life of crime and chaos. The Joker is the first in a series of movies and comics ...
  • The Essential Will Smith   Gemini Man opens October 11.  The name Will Smith has become synonymous with  sci-fi action films.  Smith has had a long and varied career, even if his genre roles are my favorite.  I’ve been a fan of his since I was a kid.  Somewhere I have a Soundtracks cassette of ...
  • Best Superhero Movies That Were Never Made Todd Philips’ controversial new film Joker opens this week.  It’s kind of amazing that a character piece with no connection to the DC Universe and no Batman in sight got the green light.  Many other movies aren’t so lucky.  Even movies with major talent attached to them.  Here’s a look ...

  • Avengers Bests Avatar at Box Office – But Avatar Is Still #1 in My Heart Avatar is one of my all time favorite movies.  So I’m a little torn that Avengers: Endgame has broken its box office record.
