Until last night.
The Empty Man really disappointed me. They totally dropped the ball on editing and painting a picture that would make us care.
Character development was pretty much nonexistent. To me, the first step in a good movie is making sure we feel some sort of emotion for the characters. Whether it be love or hate, it matters. Honestly, there were a few people that I didn’t even know their names by the time the movie was done.
It was boring. The Empty Man dragged on way too long, and the only emotion I felt was relief that it was over.
I’m not familiar with any of the actors that were in it, therefore I wasn’t able to judge how their acting stacked up. None of them really popped or stood out from the crowd.
This was a dreary movie with a semi-interesting plot that was not executed very well. In my opinion, save yourself the ticket price and wait for it to pop into Netflix.
About The Peetimes: I recommend the 2nd Peetime. The first one is there only for emergencies as it has some plot development. I was able to sum it up easily and it wouldn’t disrupt the flow of the movie but there was a lot of information given in a short amount of time.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Empty Man. (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.
