  • How movies earn an A Grade at RunPee
    We consider an A, any A, from – to +, to be the best a movie in its genre has to offer. And while we sometimes — especially in long-running franchises — grade on a curve, we believe an A movie fulfills our expectations of a feature film of its ...
  • How do the movies in Star Wars and Star Trek stand up to the Bechdel test?
    Do the characters in Star Wars and Star Trek — movies ostensibly depicting future lives and worlds — pass the Bechdel test? I was up too late one night and decided to think this through. What is the Bechdel test, you ask? It’s generally accepted as whether a work of fiction features ...

  • Forget life for a while and watch all 9 episodes of Star Wars… AT ONCE
    Thank you Internet, for once again delivering something new and distracting for us. Watch this YouTube video of a nine screen split of Star Wars episodes I – IX. It’s crazy!

  • How I Came To Love Guardians Of The Galaxy
    There are certain films that hook you from the very first time you see the poster, let alone the trailer, and there are those that you really struggle to see why they bothered. For me that spectrum ran from “Leon” (BIG fan of Luc Besson) down to “Dangerous Liaisons,” which ...

  • Marvel Phase 4 reset almost all of their release dates
    In an alternate reality where that one bat in Wuhan China zigged left instead of right, we’d be going to see the new Black Widow movie on May 1st, 2020. Alas, that’s not how things turned out. In this reality, where everything has been turned inside out, we’ll have to ...
  • The Most Anticipated Science Fiction & Fantasy Shows of 2020
    In a post-Endgame, post-Star Wars Saga world, I have a hole in my soul where movie anticipation used to live. I had a lot of anticipation in 2019 for the new Terminator film, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Men in Black International, Zombieland 2, and Jumanji 3. All let me down in ...

  • Why Avatar Deserves to be the Number 1 Movie Over Avengers: Endgame
    With Avengers: Endgame passing Avatar to become the highest grossing movie of all time, I’ve recently gotten into a lot of heated debates with my friends as to why I think Avatar is more deserving of #1. So I’m going to tell you — in a more calm manner than ...
  • Was The Infinity War Snap random in who was dusted?
    A thought occurred to me last night while watching a YouTube video about Thanos’  Snap: were the people who became dust selected at random? At first glance I always assumed so, but maybe not. I’m not a mathematician, and questions of probability can confound even professors of mathematics. I’ll lay out my ...

  • Spider-Man & Iron Man – Lyrics to Back in Black by AC/DC
    Starting way back in 2008 with Iron Man‘s use of I Am Iron-Man and, yes, Back in Black, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has never been shy of using classic rock hits in their superhero movies. While 2019’s Spiderman: Far From Home doesn’t have as many rocking songs as Spider-Man: Homecoming, ...

  • Movie Review – Spider-Man: Far from Home – Fun, but a little underwhelming
      I liked Spider-Man: Far From Home. I liked it a lot. But I didn’t love it, and that surprised me. I adore Tom Holland‘s version of Spider-Man, and think he’s the best Peter Parker ever done, no question. (Notice how this sidesteps Miles Morales‘ stunning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse quite nicely.) ...

    Rock Music in the Marvel Cinematic Universe If you’re paying at all attention to the music during the already overcrammed events in Avengers Endgame, you’ll notice a few classic rock songs stand out.

    Did you stay to the very bitter end of Endgame? There’s some speculation about what that hammer sound was at the end of the credits in Avengers: Endgame. Is it something we’ll find out in an upcoming movie? Could be. But that hammering-on-metal audio clip sure does sound a lot ...
  • Captain Marvel – Video and Lyrics to Just a Girl by No Doubt
    Captain Marvel is a girl. We kind of all knew that in advance.  But while her origin story sends the girl power message a bit over the top, Just A Girl by No Doubt still really works, cinematically. It’s a fun, feel-good movie moment. The entire film’s 90s sound track is ...
