Fact vs. Fiction

  • Top Astronaut Movies to Rewatch Right Now
    Here at RunPee we lean heavily into covering science fiction movies, since we’re huge geeks. You’ve probably noticed. 😉 We especially love movies about scientists and space. There are many wonderful space movies featuring astronauts as heroes…which, of course in real life they are. Think of the training and deprivations these ...
  • Watching Outbreak in the time of CoVid-19
    I recently rewatched the 1994 disaster film Outbreak, because 1. I always loved that movie, 2. kind of dig diseases (I like science, okay?), and 3. there’s a real global pandemic happening right now. You’ve probably heard about that. Also, 4. I needed to get Peetimes for Outbreak, because I’m not the ...
  • Women do like Bad Boys (the movie) and here’s the data to prove it
    There are a lot of universal miss-truths: dinosaurs are extinct — not true, we call them birds now — or, that antibiotics cure the flu (nope; it’s a virus and antibiotics only work on bacteria)…and that women don’t like action movies. All wrong. Here’s one that’s true: women like bad boys. Well, ...
  • 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 ...
  • Tom Hanks and Fred (Mr) Rogers are cousins
    Ancestry.com has discovered that Tom Hanks and Fred Rogers are sixth cousins.

(Bringing a whole new meaning to getting into character.) “It all just comes together, you see,” Hanks ...
  • What happened to Pete Miles – Ken’s son in Ford v Ferrari?

  • How to Avoid Being Eaten by a Shark In a Shark Movie (or real life)
    Like shark movies? Ever wonder WHY we enjoy these monster/disaster/fish bait movies so much? I wonder that myself. It’s not like they’re teaching us how to avoid being eaten alive, hunted like prey, or anything useful. So here’s the top ten ways to avoid becoming “chummy” with the sharks. (Get it? ...
  • Where is “Hell’s Kitchen” and how did it get the name?
    Like too many all of life’s crucial questions, there’s no definitive answer to either the where or the how, but there are many theories, all of which have some a degree of truth to them. The easiest one is the where. There is definitely a place that is officially “Googley” named Hell’s ...
  • Stuber vs Uber – Welcome to the Ratings Game, in Real Life
    Well, it’s official. We’ve had an action movie about Uber driving. I suppose the next film will be a thriller about a couple in for trouble at an Air BnB. 🙂 It’s a sign of the times for sure. I’ve been using Uber almost exclusively to get to movies for RunPee ...
