Pig was a surprising gem of a movie. It’s most definitely not what I thought it was going to be. Pig was so thought-provoking that almost twenty-four hours after seeing it, I’m still having epiphanies.
The movie doesn’t follow your normal timeline and introductions. You are given little pieces of a story that has already started. Basically, you come in and the movie has already played for an hour. Let me try to explain. You are not given a back story. There are a lot of places you need to fill in the missing information. The whole movie is a metaphor. You get out of it what you put into it. I liked that aspect; it was a fresh approach that left us all scratching our heads.
Pig isn’t for everyone. If you’re just wanting to sit back and be entertained with no real thoughts needed, don’t see Pig. It makes you think hardcore; you’ll be searching for the meaning just like the pig searching out morels.
About The Peetimes: This was a very short film. I only submitted 1 Peetime because after seeing the movie, any Peetimes that are past the one I’ve done have you missing way too much character development and storyline. This movie has a certain flow that can’t be missed.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Pig. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
