  • Christmas Indie Movie Review – Cup Of Cheer
    Cup Of Cheer is, allegedly, a comedy. There are moments of incongruity, surprise, repetition, inversion, exaggeration, and slapstick. There’s only one thing missing and that, sadly, is anything remotely funny. It is supposed to be a parody of the archetypal, traditional Christmas film. Cup Of Cheer starts with a big city journalist, Mary (Storm …
  • A US Classic From A UK Perspective – A Christmas Story
    A little background… At the start of the decade a change in circumstances meant I had a lot of spare time during the run up to Christmas. So what was I going to do? What I did was got hold of a load of Christmas films and thoroughly got into the …
  • All About A Christmas Carol
    So Many Retellings Of A Short Story Scrooge, a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner… let’s make a Christmas favourite of him! I’m going to luxuriate in the knowledge that I’ll be talking about a story that is nearly two centuries old and, therefore, will be paying no heed to …
  • Miracle On 34th Street – 1947 vs 1994
    A good story bears repeating. At least that’s the impression you get if you look into your average film studio’s output. Who knows… maybe there’s a future article in that? Anyhow, as it’s rapidly approaching Christmas, I thought I’d take a look at one of my favourite Christmas stories — …
  • Rewatch Review – The Long Kiss Goodnight
    The Long Kiss Goodnight is a great film. It has action, thrills, humour, intrigue, suspense… everything! Geena Davis is gorgeous and believable as both the mumsy Samantha Caine and the deadly Charlie Baltimore. Confused? How about if I say that Sam Caine is an anagram of ‘amnesiac? Samuel L Jackson is brilliant …
  • Rewatch Review – Love Actually (A Brit Perspective)
    Back in October we were talking about articles for the run up to Christmas (yes, this stuff is all actually planned!) and the idea of a rewatch review of Love Actually was mentioned, especially a British take on the film. This took me a little by surprise, as I can’t help …
  • Die Hard and Beyond: Are They Really Christmas Films?
    There are films that are obviously Christmas films; they only make sense because they’re set at Christmas; it only feels right to watch them at Christmas; they belong to Christmas. And then there are films that are associated with Christmas and they are the ones there are arguments about. So… a Christmas …
  • Indie Movie Review – Derelicts
    Films like Derelicts do make me worry for the friends that I’ve made over in the USA. More so than just the chance of them being shot by someone claiming to be defending his right to walk around bristling with weaponry, or catching something relatively treatable and being bankrupted. I worry …
  • There’s an E.T. sequel and it’s awesome
    I just finished watching E.T. for basically the first time. I only saw it one time in 1982, and 38 years later didn’t remember anything beyond the “Phone Home” shtick. I wrote this grand review about the symbolism in E.T. with a lot of thoughts tending towards the introspective. I …
  • Movie Review – Carol of the Bells
      Carol of the Bells is a lot like a Hallmark Christmas movie, and I don’t mean this in a good way. You could see the seams in the acting and directing transitions, and it didn’t come across as a polished story. That said, Andrea F. Friedman, the actress with Down’s …
  • The Star Wars Holiday Special …Is it really that bad?
    Is it really that bad? Yes. Yes it is. With a few moments that were faintly amusing. Created using the real-to-goodness original cast of Star Wars from A New Hope, The Star Wars Holiday Special was an earnest  1978 TV movie featuring awful production values, clearly stoned actors, and some really …
  • 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 …
  • Movie Review – Shazam! – Great for Tweens, Less So for Adults
    I’ll start by setting the context: I love action/superhero movies, but never read any comics. So, I’m basing this review strictly on how I see the movie, not how it compares to any other body of work. The Good: While I definitely didn’t like the movie, I’m sure young boys under 12 …
  • Best Roman-Themed Movies to Watch For The Ides of March
    Many people associate March 15th, the Ides of March, with the assassination of Julius Caesar…but the Ides of March had been around long before Caesar was bumped off by his friends. The Romans didn’t number days of the month from the first to the last; instead they counted backwards from three …
  • Best Movies to Watch Over President’s Day Weekend
    Presidents Day Weekend! Time to get presidential and enjoy some flicks worthy of this American holiday. We’ve got movies listed here that are historical, comical, romantic, sci-fi-esque, or even just totally wacky — there’s something for everyone. Not in any particular order, here are the greatest movies to get you into …
  • Lego Movie 2 Holiday Short – Christmas is Awesome
    I somehow missed this little video treat over the holidays, and maybe you did too. On the eve of The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, it’s worth taking a peek at this short Christmas one-off taking place in the apocalyptic ruins of Bricksburg and the Lego Movie crew (including …
  • Ring in the New Year With Harry and Sally
    I know there’s more than one movie associated with New Year’s Eve besides When Harry Met Sally, but at the moment I can’t think of anything better. And on a re-watch, it still stands up beautifully through time. Ever meet someone you can’t stand at one point in your life, …
  • Rewatch Movie Review – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
    I kind of remember National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation as funnier than it is, through younger and rosier colored glasses. Sometimes things don’t really stand up to the passage of time, and this ‘Vacation’ movie from 1989 seems darker and a little bit meaner than I remember. It’s rather judgmental, taking …
  • Virgin Movie Review – A Merry Friggin’ Christmas (2014)
    A Merry Friggin’ Christmas was a strange, strange film to watch. It seemed to have the distinctive low production values of a Hallmark Holiday Special, yet somehow boasted the clout and cash flow to hire friggin’ Robin Williams as the co-star. (Not to mention Candice Bergen, in a throw-away role.) …
  • Classic Movie Re-Watch Review – It’s A Wonderful Life
    I have to watch It’s A Wonderful Life (IAWL) every year during the holidays. It’s just one of those movies like that annoying drunk uncle at the family reunion…. it never goes away. I revisited Bedford Falls yet again, and this time with my husband (Scott) because he had never seen it …
  • Virgin Movie Review – Bad Santa
    Billy Bob Thornton can act. He’s underrated, but shows a consistent range throughout his filmography. During the holiday season, he’s even got two popular rewatchable Christmas songs under his belt. He’s completely believable, whether he’s a smary President of the United States,  or the world’s meanest, drunkest Santa. Spoilers Ahead! And here’s …
  • Love, Actually and Christmas Is All Around (That “Festering Turd of a Record”)
    Bill Nighy rocks. And in Love, Actually, he rocks even harder as a washed up, has-been rock star, an aging bad boy we can’t help but love. Also, he’s one of those actors I’m certain can do no wrong. Hear that, Nighy? We’re all in agreement here: RunPee loves you. 🙂 Love, …
  • Movie Review – Once Upon A Deadpool
      The Deadpool Before Christmas was hard to grade. I had to wonder if it’s better than the original Deadpool 2, if it added anything impressive to the canon, and if it’s worth spending your cash on what amounts to a re-tread of the same movie you saw last summer. For real …
  • Deadpool PG-13 wants to Cure Cancer with Your Movie Money
    According to the Wikipedia, the PG-13 holiday special of The Deadpool Before Christmas only happened because Reynolds insisted charities should benefit. Awwww! I never knew Reynolds was secretly a sweetheart, but maybe we should have guessed it: he’s confirmed Deadpool is indeed a member of the Hogwarts House Hufflepuff, where …
  • Virgin Movie Review – Jim Carrey’s The Grinch (2000)
    Holy hell, this was directed by Ron Howard? Normally I love his touch. And as for Jim Carrey, I’ve always been a fan. Not with this. This is the Carrey equivalent of Bill Murrey’s Garfield: a true WTF? I imagine (and know for sure, based on my own great-niece’s preferences) some …
