  • Accidental Rewatch Movie Review: A Merry Friggin Christmas (2014)
      Let me get this off my chest: A Merry Friggin Christmas is a terrible movie. It’s even worse to compute, knowing the absolute talent behind it. Here’s my experience: after a first watch — then re-watch immediately again — of Dan Harmon’s cult classic Community, I wanted more of the ...
  • Themes On A Christmas Carol – Blackadder’s Christmas Carol (1988)
    I know that a lot of people outside of the UK only think of Mr Bean when they hear of Rowan Atkinson but, trust me, he is far funnier than that character. As has been alluded to many times, I am getting on a bit and can remember him in ...
  • Non-Christmas Christmas Movies – First View Review of First Blood
    Whenever you hear of a film with Rambo in the title, you’ll no doubt think of wall to wall violence, tidal waves of blood, and a soundtrack consisting mainly of gunshots, screams, and explosions. You may also think of bulging biceps as Rambo hauls back on the string of a ...
  • Non-Christmas Christmas Films: Home Alone 2 – Lost in New York (1992)
    It’s another Christmas, a year later, and young Kevin is lost again. I’m not sure if there’s some intensely bad parenting involved, or if the kid just attracts trouble, but so it goes. It’s basically Die Hard 2, with a ten-year-old, and everyone in-universe pretty much knows it. “Not again” is ...
  • Christmas Classic First View Review – A Christmas Carol (1938)
    Over the years I’ve seen a fair few versions of A Christmas Carol, or Scrooge as it’s sometimes called, but this 1938 version is a new one on me! There’s no point going too deeply into the story because, as both Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes and Simply Red ...
  • Christmas First View Review – An American Christmas Carol (1979)
    Here we have an attempt to prove the ubiquity and relevance of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol by taking it from Victorian-era London and plonking it down in Depression-era Concord, New Hampshire. I don’t if there’s any significance in the location but the time has obviously been chosen as one of ...
  • Classic Christmas Rewatch – Home Alone (1990)
    So I’ve been thinking about my favorite Christmas movie category – the ones I call Non-Christmas Christmas Films. This fun category includes such classics as Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, and Gremlins. Iron Man 3. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. I have a useful list going here. But in that post, I ...
  • Christmas Classic First Watch Review – Christmas In Connecticut (1945)
    I’ll admit that this was a total surprise. As is rapidly becoming traditional, here in RunPee Towers, this time of year means that there are Christmas films to be watched.  We do try and get other themes going for other holidays but, as a lot of them are unheard of ...
  • Christmas Classic First Watch Review – White Christmas (1954)
    I’ve never been one to make any undue effort and, in a similar vein, I don’t like to waste any effort accidentally made. When I had my moment of confusion over Holiday Inn and White Christmas the obvious thing, to me, was to save the notes I’d made and use ...
  • Christmas Classic First Watch Review – Holiday Inn (1942)
    I’ll admit to being a bit confused by Holiday Inn. I intended to see the film with the song White Christmas in it and, obviously went for the one called White Christmas. Now I knew that Bing Crosby sang White Christmas but I was also fairly confident that Fred Astaire ...
  • Christmas Classic Rewatch Review – Scrooge (1951)
    Elsewhere I wrote about how and why A Christmas Carol was written and how it’s been adapted many times on screens both large and small. It’s the most often adapted of all of Dickens’ works, with over thirty film outings. Oliver Twist comes second with a mere eighteen.  It’s been ...
  • Christmas Documentary Review – ’Twas The Fight Before Christmas (2021)
    ’Twas The Fight Before Christmas (2021) from Apple TV+ is another of those films that emphasises the difference between the USA and the UK. Over here we’re only vaguely religious in the main. By that I mean that when you go into hospital they always ask your religion. The majority ...
  • Non-Christmas Christmas Movies – Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
    It seems odd, looking back on Kiss Kiss Bang Bang from this side of the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — that it was touch and go whether or not Robert Downey Jr would get the lead role of Harry Lockhart. At the time, RDJ was considered to ...
  • Christmas Movie Rewatch – Nativity!
    Ah, Nativity! My wife doesn’t watch a lot of films but she watched and enjoyed this one. She does work in a primary school so there may have been some resonance for her there. I thought I’d give it a look because of the fine array of talent connected to ...
  • Christmas Classic Rewatch Review – Die Hard 2
    Time, it’s a bugger, isn’t it. Die Hard 2 came out about five years ago… in 1990! After a sit down with a nice hot cup of tea and a biscuit, nothing too exciting… a rich tea or a plain digestive, it does dawn on you that it’s now over ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Crappy Mother’s Day
    You only need to see the title – Crappy Mother’s Day – and you know that this film is aiming at being a comedy. Now I’ve spent in excess of six decades on this planet and know that, just because a film or TV programme describes itself as a comedy, that is ...
  • GHD Indie Movie Review – The Map Of Tiny Perfect Things
    The Map Of Tiny Perfect Things is the latest addition to the Groundhog Day time loop sub-genre so there’s a certain amount of stuff that is known from the start; the protagonist is experiencing one day over and over again. Having realised what is happening, they learn to live with ...
  • New Years Movie Rewatch Review – Bridget Jones’s Diary
    Back in the mid to late nineties there was a publishing phenomenon… Helen Fielding had written a faux diary about a thirty-something singleton called Bridget Jones. Bridget Jones’s Diary went on to become what The Guardian named as one of the ten novels that best defined the 20th century. Inevitably, it was ...
  • New Year Rewatch Review – Entrapment
    You’ve seen him as James Bond. You’ve seen him as a Russian submarine commander. You’ve seen him as an immortal Spaniard. You’ve seen him as kings Richard and Arthur. You’ve seen him as Indiana Jones’ dad. You’ve seen him as dozens of other characters, but he’s always Sean Connery. That ...
  • New Year Rewatch Review – Sunset Boulevard
    Sunset Boulevard, if you haven’t already seen it, is a scathing, withering attack on the morals and mores of mid-twentieth century Hollywood. And Hollywood wasn’t best pleased. Following an advance screening for the industry bigwigs, Louis B Meyer was apoplectic and tore into director Billy Wilder thusliwise… “You befouled your ...
  • New Years Eve First View Movie Review: Four Rooms
    There’s no mistaking Four Rooms for anything other than a New Year film… it actually starts to the strains of Auld Lang Syne! Basically, Four Rooms is a quartet of stories set in the Hotel Mon Signor on New Years Eve. Each segment is directed by a different director with a, ...
  • Silver Linings: Gratitude in the Year of CoVid
    “I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” ― ...
  • It’s A Wonderful Christmas – How RunPee Rob takes in the holiday season
    We’re primarily a film based site and, sure enough, most of the articles here are related to films; new films, old favourites, comparisons of remakes, looking back and reappraising, and general opinion pieces. But the other week I wrote something that wasn’t about any particular film. Rather, it was about ...
  • RunPee’s Big Annual Christmas Movie Review List
    Each year at RunPee we get a little closer to reviewing all the Christmas films — at least, all of the good and/or notorious ones that popular culture appreciates. One year I tried to take on some Hallmark Christmas movies and found I couldn’t quite go that far down the ...
  • Christmas Rewatch Review – Scrooged
    Scrooged is A Christmas Carol dragged kicking and screaming into the modern world… well, the late eighties anyway. Bill Murray is Frank Cross, the Scrooge character, but in this world he’s a cynical TV executive. He’s tasked with making sure his Christmas spectacular grabs the biggest share of the audience, and he wants to ...
