  • 26 Classic Movies to Revisit at the Drive In (And 11 new films)
    As we know, movie theaters are shuttered, due to mounting case totals of CoVid-19. Happily, drive-in theaters are relevant again and seeing a filmatic resurgence. While there are very few new movies (Palm Springs, Greyhound, and Trolls World Tour are among the six we’ve covered below), classic favorites — the ...
  • Classic Movie Review — Austin Powers 2: The Spy Who Shagged Me
    Mike Myers has the best chemistry with himself. This carries through the Austin Powers trilogy, where in each film he plays more versions of himself than before. NOTE: All Classic Movie Reviews have spoilers.  The Spy Who Shagged Me used to be my favorite Austin Powers film, but now it’s kind of ...
  • Best of British Biographies – Timothy Spall
    “There’s the funny-looking character actor who plays the same role every time. But I’m the funny-looking character actor who plays many different kinds.” – Timothy Spall Tim Spall is one of those brilliant, chameleonic actors who can turn his hand to any role but — probably because he isn’t classically handsome ...
  • Classic Movie Review – Gremlins
    Gremlins. One of the best non-Christmas Christmas movies ever made. It’s got a bizarre but cemented niche among the classics that somehow stands up after all this time, although Steven Spielberg seemed to be experimenting with genres in those days. Gremlins (1984) isn’t a great movie, but slips into the ...
  • Classic Movie Review – The Goonies
    The Goonies ‘r’ good enough for me! Here’s another Amblin Entertainment kid-based movie by Steven Spielberg that still holds up over time. The Goonies (from 1985) is a charming, fun ride featuring pirates, monsters, secret passageways, treasure maps, cunning kids, and more bike chases than E.T. (What is it with Spielberg, kids, ...
  • Director Paul Verhoeven & the Woeful Reboots of Robocop, Total Recall, and Starship Troopers
    What have the following all got in common: Robocop, Total Recall, and Starship Troopers? All three are cracking — if a bit O.T.T. — films by Dutch director Paul Verhoeven. Usually a term like ‘maverick’ is thrown in at some point but, as the only other Dutch director I’m aware of is ...
  • Classic Movie Review – Mean Girls
    Such a cute classic teen comedy. Mean Girls isn’t striving to be a generational anthem like The Breakfast Club (an A+ movie), or even attempting to do so for young adults  — like St. Elmo’s Fire (rolling through with a B+). Still, within the limitations of being: a small story that’s ...
  • Classic Movie Review – The Empire Strikes Back
    Our first catch of the day The Empire Strikes Back will be impossible to review. Beloved films are always difficult to do justice to without a lot of hand wringing and mental gymnastics. And for a Star Wars movie at the top of its game (a feat never repeated since), it’s ...
  • We’re Adding Classic Movies to the RunPee Database
    Because of Covid19 there aren’t any new blockbusters being released in theaters right now, but there’s plenty of old classic movies that we can rewatch and add to the RunPee database. We’d love it if you fired up the RunPee app to check out our Peetimes and let us know ...
  • Classic Movie Review – E.T. The Extra Terrestrial
    What an enchanting film! E.T. The Extra Terrestrial is deservedly among the greats. Steven Spielberg proved he was mighty with the movie-making. Who else can take a goofy premise (suburban boy befriends gentle alien) and make it so compelling? So buoyant and wondrous. It seems like it would be a ...
  • Classic Movie Review – Back to the Future
    Back to the Future: Witty, exciting, memorable, perfectly cast, with sparkling chemistry, a fantastic score, and immensely quotable lines. Okay, done. Movie Grade: A+ Well, gosh darn daddy-o, I should probably pen a heavier review…okay, if you insist… There’s that word again, ‘heavy.’ Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a ...
  • Classic Movie Review – Ghostbusters
    It’s hard to review really great movies, especially super amazing classics that are A+++ and can do not wrong. I want to do justice to them in the reviewing, and that’s a lot of pressure. Anyway, Ghostbusters is one of those films that in spite of how silly the premise ...
  • What makes a B grade movie rank at RunPee (using the Rock as an example)
    We’ve discussed movie reviews in the A range at RunPee before, but what about those Bs? To be clear, we consider a B movie as good to very good. But then what do we look for in a B film? B+ movies A B+ movie grade is for very good films. We ...
  • 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 ...
  • Contagion predictions eerily true about the pandemic…what about the next stage?
    Contagion has been scarily predicting the course of the world’s pandemic. It’s eerie. Have you watched Contagion? I rewatched the 2011 movie last night to see what might be next during our current global crisis, since the film’s been so accurate showing what happened so far. Here are my cursory Contagion ...
  • How do the movies in Star Wars stand up to the Bechdel test?
    Do the characters in Star Wars — 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 at least two ...
  • 5 Older Movies We’d Love Remakes Of (And 5 That Are Perfect)
    It is a truth universally acknowledged: a single movie in possession of a large following must be in want of a remake. At least, that’s how Hollywood executives seem to see things! Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the real truth is that remakes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. And that’s even ...
  • Passengers Rewatch Review
    I assume you have already seen Passengers. Spoilers ahead. Rewatching Passengers tonight I noticed a flaw in the plot. It was pointed out that the hibernation pods could keep them asleep, and wake them up when they arrived at Homestead II, but they didn’t have the equipment to put someone into hibernation. However, ...
  • Remembering James Bond — Seeing Goldfinger live in the theater
    So what do Pierce Brosnan and I have in common? Both voted “Sexiest Man Alive” by People Magazine in 2001? Both about 6’2”? Both have had a license to kill? Only one of those three is correct but there is something else that we have in common… the first film we saw ...
  • My favorite Sean Connery role: Finding Forrester
    Sean Connery is a Hollywood icon. Beyond his role as the godfather of 007 — James Bond himself — he performed in hit movies such as The Untouchables, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, The Man Who Would Be King, The Rock (where his character is basically the 007 who ...
  • Top Astronaut Movies to Rewatch Right Now
    Here at RunPee we lean heavily into covering science fiction movies, since we’re huge geeks. You’ve probably noticed. 😉 We especially love movies about scientists and space. There are many wonderful space movies featuring astronauts as heroes…which, of course in real life they are. Think of the training and deprivations these ...
  • Watching Outbreak in the time of CoVid-19
    I recently rewatched the 1994 disaster film Outbreak, because 1. I always loved that movie, 2. kind of dig diseases (I like science, okay?), and 3. there’s a real global pandemic happening right now. You’ve probably heard about that. Also, 4. I needed to get Peetimes for Outbreak, because I’m not the ...
  • Movie Review: A Star Wars Ewok Adventure – Caravan of Courage
    Because I’m a masochist completist, I decided to watch everything Lucasfilm put out about Star Wars. Even if it sucks. I’ve got the atrocious yet fun Star Wars Holiday Special under my belt, plus The Battle for Endor (just bad bad bad), and now mockumentary Return of the Ewok (terrible ...
  • Star Wars Mockumentary Movie Review – Return of the Ewok
    I’ll start this mini-review saying Return of the Ewok is quite sweet, if you can get your hands on a copy — even the bad one currently up on YouTube. This fun little 25-minute mockumentary features Warwick Davis as himself and Wicket the Ewok (inserted Forrest Gump-like) into various scenes ...
  • Contagion – a PSA and movie review
    What makes the movie Contagion so dramatic is that it’s not overly dramatic. This isn’t a virus that wipes out half the world population. There’s no bleeding from the eyes, no walking dead. However, director Steven Soderbergh manages to turn an everyday scene in a coffee shop into the horror movie equivalent ...
