I’m giving this movie an A. The acting was over the top amazing, but the other half of me wants to give the movie an F — solely due to the way it made me feel inside.
Back when 9/11 happened, RunPee Mom was a flight attendant for Delta, based out of JFK. RunPee Dan lived with her, and had to use the subway to get to work that morning. We had spent the previous weekend at the World Trade Center celebrating her new marriage. When the planes hit, me and RunPee Mom were in OKC watching it on the news; worrying about the safety of my brother and her son was one of the most stressful moments of our lives. They both knew people that were killed in the attack. It hit us all hard. My heart bled for the loss of life — and the anger I had towards those who were responsible was immense.
With that being said, I still know that everyone is entitled to a fair trial, to follow our legal system. This movie brought to life what went on at Guantanamo Bay. It was sickening. I didn’t agree with how our government handled the situation. It was hard to watch. I wouldn’t recommend watching this, because of the travesty that takes place.
But if you want more fuel to argue over the dinner table with your loved ones…have at it. It’s gonna make you mad, sad, and angry.
About The Peetimes: This was an intense movie. Peetimes were incredibly hard to do. I’m going to recommend the 1st. The 2nd Peetime has a ton of development in it, but is really the last time you could miss without getting lost.
There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Mauritanian. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
Genres: Drama, Thriller

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.
