  • First View Movie Review – The Endless
    So where do I begin with The Endless? It only just squeaks in as a Groundhog Day type film. Not because there isn’t a time loop, more likely because there isn’t just the one. There seem to be dozens of them. Some only seem to last seconds, whereas others last longer. ...
  • First Watch Film Review – Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
      Is Eternal Sunshine a Groundhog Day Loop film? Let’s explore! Here we go with another film that, for some unknown reason, I’ve never seen and am not sure why. At least this one’s relatively recent; I still haven’t seen Citizen Kane or The Sound Of Music! Could it have been the sub-par cast? Nope! Any ...
  • Jill’s Top 10 Movies of 2020
    Well, let’s start by saying 2020 sucked, movie-wise. At least in the theatrical releases. With the pandemic keeping us inside, theaters have been (mostly) closed all year — tough for film fanatics like us. The trickle of new wide release films hasn’t provided much in the way of outstanding offerings: I’ve ...
  • Golden Man’s Top 10 Movies of 2020
    How do you choose the top 10 movies of 2020? I wish I knew an easy way to choose the top 10 movies of 2020.  But the truth is it’s like trying to pick your favorite child:  there are so precious few of them.  Looking at the “Movies Seen 2020” list ...
  • Movie Review – Wonder Woman 1984
    I guess it’s fitting that Warner Brothers managed to release #WW84 before the year 2020 was out, because boy did it suck. It was so bad I felt sorry for the actors because their dialog was so poorly written. I’m pretty sure Chris Pine is hoping his character (Steve Trevor) ...
  • RunPee’s Big Annual Christmas Movie Review List
    Each year at RunPee we get a little closer to reviewing all the Christmas films — at least, all of the good and/or notorious ones that popular culture appreciates. One year I tried to take on some Hallmark Christmas movies and found I couldn’t quite go that far down the ...
  • First View Movie Review – The Muppet Christmas Carol
    Maybe it’s a generational thing. I was starting college for the first time when The Muppet Show was first aired. I’ve never seen Sesame Street. Well, not more than the odd clip on TV; enough to be aware of some of the history of the beasts. Throw into the mix the absence ...
  • Is there anything extra during the end credits of Wonder Woman 1984?
    Yes, there are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Wonder Woman 1984. View details and movie information… Please share and help RunPee grow:FacebookTwitterPinterestRedditEmail
  • Movie Review – Monster Hunter
    I’ll get right to it: this movie isn’t worth seeing in a theater. If this movie came out in the 1980s the special effects would have been impressive. Today? Not so much. You get what you would expect from Milla Jovovich. There’s some cringe-worthy dialog early in the movie that no ...
  • Is there anything extra during the end credits of Monster Hunter?
    No, there are not any extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Monster Hunter. View details and movie information… Please share and help RunPee grow:FacebookTwitterPinterestRedditEmail
  • Rewatch Review – The Man Who Invented Christmas
    A lot of what we now think of as Christmas traditions going back centuries actually started out as little more than whims of fashion — many of which are less than two hundred years old. The Man Who Invented Christmas tells the story of some of those fashions. When Dickens wrote A ...
  • Rewatch Reviews – Arthur Christmas
    First off, I LOVE Arthur Christmas! It is funny, entertaining, and endlessly re-watchable. The talent on display is awesome and the attention to detail is breathtaking. There are so many little things that you either see for the first time when you watch it, or can point out to other people ...
  • Top Twenty Games on Star Trek – Including Poker, Dabo, 3-D Chess, Fizzbin, and Tongo
    Because I’m a good geek, I wrote a quick post about Star Trek: The Next Generation and poker. There’s a few more Star Trek games to discuss: 3-D Chess, Strategema, Darts, Tongo, Dabo, Pool, and of course, the time-honored game of  Fizzbin. And that’s not even all of the games ...
  • Movie Review – The Croods 2
    This is definitely a young kids movie. There’s lots of super saturated bright colors and silly cartoon antics that the characters almost constantly go through. In that light most young kids will probably like it. However, I wonder if they’ll like it anymore than just watching any old cartoon movie ...

    Yes, there are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Croods 2. View details and movie information… Please share and help RunPee grow:FacebookTwitterPinterestRedditEmail
  • RunPee Weekly Newsletter 37th edition (November 25th, 2020)
    The app that tells you the best time to run and pee during a movie without missing the best scenes.    Horror! Thanksgiving! Movie Review — Derelicts Yes kids, there are indeed slasher Thanksgiving movies out there. There’s some real weirdness in Derelicts. Don’t ask me about wearing a Teddy Bear on your ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Expulsion
    Expulsion starts with a quote from Stephen Hawking’s last published work… We are not down to a single, unique universe… So if, like me, you’ve got even a passing interest in science fact and/or fiction, you’ll know that we’re talking multiverse theory. You know, that theory that says there are an infinite number ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Emily and the Magical Journey
    I have to admit to feeling a bit like Groucho Marx over this film… “Why, a four-year-old child could understand this report. Run out and find me a four-year-old child. I can’t make head nor tail out of it.” It’s a family film aimed at feisty, imaginative young girls, and ...
  • The Film Legacy of Sean Connery
    This weekend I had one of those “aww” moments when you get some sad news. Not so sad as to knock you sideways, like the death of a parent or a favourite dog, but sad enough to give you a moment’s pause to think back and reflect. That moment was ...
  • Exclusive Interview with Actor Heath C. Heine — Star of Monster Force Zero & Jurassic Thunder
    This versatile actor is worth hunting down: we’ll see more of Heath Heine soon. In Jurassic Thunder alone he has three roles (one of which is a certain orange President), and in Monster Force Zero he’s clearly channeling Biff (Back to the Future. Duh. Hello, McFly!) We were honored to ...
  • Where to watch Alien Addiction, directed by Shae Sterling
    Typical… you wait ages for talented, New Zealand based film directors with an offbeat sense of humour — and then three come along at once! First there was Peter Jackson. Now he’s synonymous with anything Tolkienesque, but way back in the days of VHS tapes he was the master of the ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Sinbad The Fifth Voyage (Ultimate Director’s Cut)
    Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage Ultimate Director’s Cut, to give it its full title, hooked me in from the first words. Mind you, they were spoken by Sir Patrick Stewart and I would do anything asked of me by that voice! I’m old and straight but if he asked, I’d think ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Pulse
    Part of the pleasure of being given the opportunity to watch and review independent films for RunPee is finding films like Pulse. I’ll be honest, a fair few are not wonderful. Some are well done in certain ways and not so much in others; well shot but badly acted, good story ...
  • Indie Movie Review – Jurassic Thunder
    Fancy something totally bizarre and ludicrous? Jurassic Thunder is your baby! So you have a secret base with weaponized dinosaurs… I’ll just let that sink in for a second.  As if dinosaurs weren’t scary enough, imagine a T-Rex with a huge gun strapped to its head. Then, they are your last ...
  • Hobbitses – A Tolkien history – Behind the Lord of the Rings in epic fantasy films
      Typical! Wait decades for a film with hobbits in, and six come along at the same time! At least, that’s how it felt. Like many teens of the time, I had my copy of the single volume paperback edition of The Lord Of The Rings, shortly after it was first ...
