Dan: [ pause ] . . . ummm. [ pause ] I think so.

potential movie goer: What do you mean?

Dan: It’s just that it’s hard to say. It certainly looks spectacular.

potential movie goer: Well what’s the story about?

Dan: I have no idea. I can say that it’s about a family: father, mother and 3 boys. The father isn’t an especially good father. The mother is playful and loving. But the story skips around a lot. One minute your in a small town in Texas circa 1960 playing with the boys in the back yard. Then you’re suddenly watching jelly fish swim in the ocean for no apparent reason and then you jump to present day watching the older brother – played by Sean Penn – looking miserable.

potential movie goer: Was the acting any good?

This is a great app. I wish more people would support it

This app provides info about movies, reviews, ratings from people who have seen it before and after viewing. It has links to info about the movies. It let’s you know when there will be a lull in the action and how long it will last. If you want to know what happens during that time, you can check the brief synopsis (you have to click a link, so no accidental spoilers). It has a timer you can set (silent) to alert you to a break. It also tells you whether there is anything extra during or after the credits. It’s really a wonderful app. I’ve subscribed for a couple of years to support the developers, but I noticed some of the links to provide feedback didn’t seem to work today. They also made it free, with voluntary donations to see the pee-times. If you haven’t tried it, I encourage you to do so, and subscribe if you like it. I really hope the app is supported so it can continue to be maintained!

Developers note: RunPee doesn’t make much money but it supports itself nicely. Donations are appreciated, but not required. We’ll add as many movies to the database as we can until there are no more movie theaters.

Dan: Absolutely. The acting was great across the board. Brad Pitt plays a great old fashioned dad. And the young boy who plays the older brother is spectacular.

potential movie goer: What was your favorite bit of the movie?

Dan: I loved the visuals throughout the movie. Especially the stuff in the first 30 minutes. The dinosaur scenes were my favorite. They could have done the whole movie on primordial Earth and I think I would have liked it better. But maybe that’s just me. I think when the movie is out I’m going to digitize it and edit out all of the people scenes and just leave all of the visuals of space and primordial earth. I could watch that over and over.

potential movie goer: Would you recommend that someone see this movie?

Dan: That depends. That depends. Who is this someone? If, for instance, this someone is a big fan of movies like 2001 A Space Odyssey, Baraka, and Thin Red Line then yes. You’ll like this movie. But if you’re someone who thinks the pacing of Aliens is a little pedestrian then no. This movie probably isn’t so much your bag.

potential movie goer: Was it hard getting the peetimes?

Dan: Boy was it. Since I had no idea what the movie was about – still don’t – it was hard to tell if one scene or another would be important later. Turns out I don’t think it would really matter when you run pee during this movie. But I did manage to get 3 peetimes. I hope they help. The movie is about 2 hours and 13 minutes long – not including the end credits. So it’s likely you’ll need to pee in there somewhere.

Don’t miss your favorite movie moments because you have to pee or need a snack. Use the RunPee app (Androidor iPhone) when you go to the movies. We have Peetimes for all wide release films every week, including Bad Boys: Ride or Die, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga and coming soon Inside Out 2, Despicable Me 4  and many others. We have literally thousands of Peetimes—from classic movies through today’s blockbusters. You can also keep up with movie news and reviews on our blog, or by following us on Twitter @RunPee. If there’s a new film out there, we’ve got your bladder covered.
