  • Movie Rewatch Review – The Birdcage
    When The Birdcage opened as a feature film in 1997, I don’t remember people being quite so terrified of gay men…so it surprised me, 21 years later, to see such fear in the hearts of the young straight couple to admit the groom-to-be had two fathers. Or, as this movie ...
  • Movie Rewatch Review — Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas (1966)
    I don’t know if you can technically call a 26-minute television Christmas Special a movie, but let’s go with it, since it’s almost Christmas, and I owe the nice people who like sappy holiday shows a kind-hearted review. Filmed in 1966 and based off the classic 1957 children’s tale by the ...
  • Virgin Movie Review – Magic Stocking (half of it, maybe)
    I didn’t realize this was one of those Hallmark Specials until I already had my workout pad and weights all spread on the floor and got comfy. (Yes, a little fitness routine during my evening shows is comfort food for me.) But when “HallMark’s Magic Stocking” came onscreen, I gave my mother ...
  • The Three Types of Movie Reviews at RunPee
    At RunPee.com, we write plenty of movie reviews. A lot (and I mean a LOT, literally over thousand) of insightful write-ups, upon viewing 12 fine years of films… all to get you Peetimes for the RunPee app. New, current reviews can be read on either our blog, or in the app. ...
  • Rewatch Movie Review – My Cousin Vinny
    Even though this movie was a weird choice to show on network TV, it’s still a super good flick holding up beautifully over time. Why is this a weird choice, you ask? I’ll tell you: it features New Yorkers.  People who like to curse. In New York, cursing is like breathing, ...
  • Virgin Movie Review – 10 Cloverfield Lane
    I hadn’t seen any of the films with Cloverfield in the title, not Cloverfield itself,  or 10 Cloverfield Lane, nor the Cloverfield Paradox. I’m not clear if they’re even related to each other. Some sources say yes, but think it might indicate a anthology of unrelated trippy stories, like a  ...
  • Virgin Movie Review – Sully
    Let’s just open with this axiom: Tom Hanks can do no wrong. Done. That’s not much of a review, is it? Starting again: I just watched Sully last night for the first time. Somehow, I never heard about “The Miracle on the Hudson.” I shy away from the news, because “news” usually equals ...
  • Virgin Movie Binge Reviews — Rocky 1 and 2
    Rocky is something I’ve heard about for all my life, but to be honest, I had never seen any Rocky films. The first Rocky related movie I watched was Creed in 2015, and I thought it was a pretty good movie. Now, as Creed 2 is about to be released, ...
  • Virgin Movie Review – Gone Girl (with Spoilers)
    I feel physically unclean after seeing Gone Girl. Seriously. Please excuse me while I take a scalding shower…. Okay, I’m back. Very clean. HEY, past this point, there be SPOILERS in DETAIL about Gone Girl. I think I washed the stench of evil from my skin. Eeeeevil. E-VIL. The ‘girl’ is the ...
  • Virgin Movie Review – Get Smart
    Maybe I’ve been watching too many spy movies this month, but I was bored during this otherwise okay comedy spy film. We have a lot of US spy films, like the Mission Impossible series, RED 1 and 2, the Patriot Games trilogy, and Jason Bourne’s franchise. I recently reviewed a ...
  • Virgin Movie Review – RED 2
    Well, now. I recently re-watched RED 1, and loved it. I gave it an A. So maybe you can understand my disappointment when I say this sequel was the pits. It made almost no sense, even with Anthony Hopkins doing his usual bang-up performance, acting his heart out in a ...
  • The Grinch Who Keeps Stealing Christmas
    With the newest incarnation of The Grinch in theaters this year, we thought it was time to take a look at the history of this mean green creature, who is both dastardly and oddly sympathetic. How The Grinch Stole Christmas  (1957) – The original kid’s book by Dr. Seuss is beloved, and for ...
  • Movie ReWatch Review – RED
    To start with, the title RED in this film is an acronym for Retired, Extremely Dangerous. As retirees, we see these characters don’t have much of a life anymore. That’s the set-up, starting with Bruce Willis’ Frank Moses, lost in an empty house devoid of personal decor. I can see ...
  • Movie Rewatch Review – Deadpool
    What is it about popular films on TV and their commercials? It seems the more beloved the film, the greater the number of ads.  Watching Deadpool with my mother last night, the commercials came hot and heavy every few minutes — I’m positive at least 45 minutes of runtime were ...
  • Virgin Movie Review — Daddy’s Home
    Sometimes you just feel like watching a dumb movie. That was my deal tonight — I wanted to see something I hadn’t seen before, and Daddy’s Home was on. And yep, it’s a silly inconsequential flick, but it was a mostly pleasant experience for an evening when you just want ...
  • Movie Rewatch Review – Solo (A Star Wars Story)
    I don’t know why so many Star Wars fans have a problem with Solo. All I can think of is that it was released too close to The Last Jedi, which really incited the fan base. Otherwise, I can’t imagine why this excellent film was panned. I loved it, and ...
  • Virgin Movie Review – Independence Day 2: Resurgence
    What did I just watch? This movie was incoherent. It’s probably better if you recently did a rewatch of the original Independence Day film before viewing 2016’s Resurgence, but I can’t be sure if this is just me not paying enough attention, or the movie being made mostly of nonsense. In ...
  • Virgin Review – Legend of Tarzan
    I thoroughly enjoyed this somewhat lightweight movie. It was a different take on the Tarzan story; a more adult version. Clearly, it was filmed on location, and the African settings were breathtaking. I’m going to have to make a trip to the Congo…and I’d be honored to assume a submissive pose ...
  • Virgin Review – Source Code
    Source Code (2011) is based off yet another story by Philip K. Dick, always an excellent go-to for exciting mind-bending films about space, time, and supra-realities. Look at past movies mining P.K. Dick: Blade Runner, Minority Report, Total Recall, and Paycheck. I  know I’m missing others, but the point is ...
  • Entering the X-Files – The Pilot Episode
    The X-Files Pilot still one of the better long-running television pilots out there. Quintessentially set in the early 90s, it holds up well. Scully is an adorable skeptic, still bright-eyed and bushy tailed — so eager to please — with a sweet face still bearing traces of baby fat. Mulder ...
  • Movie Rewatch Review of X-Files – I Want To Believe
    The X-Files now has nine television seasons, two movies, and two short-term TV revivals under their belt. This no-spoiler rewatch is for the second feature film,  I Want To Believe, taking place years (both in-universe and out) after the final run of original TV episodes, and before both revivals were ...
  • 60 Movies Standing Up To The Test Of Time
    Here’s  list of my favorite films, all of which are somewhere in the  A range, or a high B. I didn’t actually include everything I’ve ever given an A to on RunPee, because they were often graded according to the target audience, and aren’t actually my personal faves. Sometimes I want ...
  • All Predator Movies, Rated
    There’s a glut of Predator movies in the franchise now, starting with the classic  Predator of 1987 with Arnold Schwarzenegger, through ’til just this week, with The Predator. Since almost each film has basically the same name (except Requiem), it can be confusing to recall which was released when, with what ...
  • Movie Rewatch Review – Jurassic Park III
    I finally  made the effort to rewatch Jurassic Park III – something always came up to distract me, and I’m easily distracted if I don’t want to see the movie in question. But I’m glad I did it: the movie isn’t so bad once you’re aware of the retched parts. It’s ...
  • Movie Rewatch Review – Ant Man
    I really used to like the original Ant Man. I thought it was underrated, charming, funny, and a lighter take on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And that’s how I remembered it until my rewatch last night. What I forgot: since it came out, a lot more amusing  and enjoyable MCU ...
