  • Movie Review – Snake Eyes
    The first third of Snake Eyes had the potential to be a mediocre movie. But in the middle third, it went downhill quickly. There was hope that the action-packed final third would make up for it, but no. It was even worse. Any good action shots were in the movie ...
  • Is there anything extra during the end credits of Space Jam: A New Legacy?
    Yes, there are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Space Jam: A New Legacy. View details and movie information…
  • Movie Review – Space Jam: A New Legacy
    Space Jam: A New Legacy is exactly as cheesy as you might expect; but it also pokes fun of itself, and LeBron, in a really charming way. LeBron is… Well he’s LeBron. There weren’t any cringe-worthy moments you might expect from a superstar athlete trying to crossover into acting. Crossover, ...
  • 30th Birthday Rewatch – Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves (1991)
    As an Englishman, you might think that I’d have the story of Robin Hood engraved upon my heart. The sad fact is that, while I can vaguely remember some details of the history of England going back to the Roman Invasion of 55BC led by Gaius Julius Caesar, I don’t ...
  • Celebrate Captain Picard Day with Jean-Luc’s top Next Generation episodes (and one movie)
    If you’re looking forward to a glass of Chateau Picard — red — or a cup of Earl Grey — hot — then you’re off to a great start, celebrating like they do on the Enterprise NCC1701-D. Captain Picard Day (June 16th by our calendar) was introduced to the viewers ...
  • Children’s Book Review – The Mouse and the Motorcycle (1965, by Beverly Cleary)
    Short, sweet, and oh so much fun, you will believe a mouse can ride a motorcycle! This is the lovely tale of Ralph, a young mouse addicted to the speed and thrill of cycling, and his friendship with a boy who loves miniature race cars. They understand each other through ...

  • Frakking for Fun – 7 Science Fiction Curse Words to Learn and Use
    Learn to curse like they do on TV! You can get away with a lot on family television and in real life if you use alien cusses to do your dirty work. Here’s our selection of fabulous F-bombs and shitty stand-ins, bolstered with other colorful language from science fiction television to ...
  • Is Star Trek V: The Final Frontier the worst Trek movie?
    TL;DR — I remembered The Final Frontier as terrible back in 1989 (and the plot/climax really is), but to my surprise it has a lot of lovely moments, decent humor, and good characterizations between the Big Three. It had its heart in the right place. The actors went all in, ...
  • Star Wars Recipes – How to make Yoda’s Dagobah Stew
      Dagobah stew! Breakfast of champions and Jedi Masters. Yoda’s apparently nasty-tasting stew is featured in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. We don’t actually know what Yoda had in his stew, based on the scene where he encourages Jedi apprentice Luke Skywalker to eat. One can guess there were lots of ...
  • Primer for Guardians of the Galaxy
    There are some spoilers here, but this is intended as a primer for the first 30 minutes of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 1, that can at times be a little confusing. First, you need to have seen the after credit scene for Thor 2: The Dark World. That’s where ...
  • Classic Movie Review – The Milagro Beanfield War
    The Milagro Beanfield War is a movie everyone should see to be delighted, laugh a lot, cry a little, and have a two hour cinematic fiesta. It’s chock full of chemistry between almost everyone, in a cast that encompasses an entire town, from children to the elderly. In fact, it’s ...
  • Movie Franchise Rewatch – Star Trek IX: Insurrection
    Insurrection is one of those movies that you kind of forget about after seeing, which explains my inability to get this review out on time. It’s very…lightweight. To its credit, it feels like a middle of the road Star Trek: The Next Generation episode. I say credit, because a middle ...
  • Top Ginger Kitties – The 6 Orange Cats in Sci Fi and Fantasy Movie Franchises
    What is it about cats who are orange — and the movies? Especially in major, iconic science fiction and fantasy film franchises? It must be a ginger thing. There are mild movie spoilers here. But these aren’t new films, so all should be right in the universe. Further disclaimer: no curiosity ...

  • Movie Review – Mortal Kombat
    I used to play MK back in the 90s, but haven’t played it since and haven’t kept up with the mythology built around it. My wife has never played the video game and was confused by the plot and asked many questions. I told her she was overthinking it. There’s ...
  • Movie Franchise Review – Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
    Looking over the entire Star Trek movie franchise, there are good ones, great ones, and outright poor ones. Star Trek 6: The Undiscovered Country is one of the good ones, and just misses being great. I’d say it falls lower than Wrath of Khan, The Voyage Home, and First Contact, ...
  • Movie Review – The Secret Garden (2020)
    I’m a huge Secret Garden fan and have been since a wonderful teacher read it chapter by chapter to my rapt class in the 4th grade. It’s on my top ten list of favorite children’s books, and will be getting a reread review this year as I work through my ...
  • Movie Review – Boss Level (2021’s Groundhog Day Loop film)
    https://runpee.com/movie-review-jumanji-the-next-level/     As the queen of Groundhog Day (GHD) time loop movies, of course I viewed and reviewed Boss Level. It’s only viewable on Hulu. This is too bad, because in a normal (ie, not CoVid year) this would be a crowd-pleasing blockbuster on the big screen. Seriously, Boss Level is a ...
  • Movie Review – Voyagers (2021)
    Voyagers was a decent movie. It was very predictable but there were such strong performances given, I will overlook that. Namely Tye Sheridan. I’ve seen him in multiple roles now and there is just something about him that I like. I hope to see him go far with his career. There ...
  • Star Trek Movies and the Bechdel Test — How do they stand up after all this time?
    I wrote an article on how the Star Wars films stood up to the Bechdel Test, which is a simple measurement to determine whether any named female characters have a conversation about something other than men. This is not a stance for feminist debate so much as an observation. For ...
  • Godzilla King of the Monsters – all the news clippings from the end credits scene
    During the first 2 minutes or so of the end credits during Godzilla: King of the Monsters we see news clippings of what happens in the year or two after the movie ends. To begin, the clippings tell the story of how man and monsters co-exist. Toward the end of the ...
  • March 26-27 2021: Anaheim’s Wonder Con hosts FREE Online Sci Fi & Fantasy Movie Convention
    UPDATE: 03/11/2021: Programming Schedule is now available! For the 2nd year running (just like sister convention Comic Con in San Diego), Los Angeles-adjacent Wonder Con will be *free* and virtual to all living rooms around the world. It’s still not safe to gather in large groups, but we can still have ...
  • Movie Rewatch Review – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
    My favorite of all the Harry Potter films — and books for that matter — this is just an A+ good time. If you like a quest-type adventure story, Goblet of Fire is a fine addition to the ranks of high fantasy. Unfortunately, I can’t speak for how well this tale ...
  • What I Saw During the 2021 Sundance Film Festival
    I recently got to attend the 2021 Sundance Film Festival online.  It was a wonderful experience.  I got to see an array of unique films. and discover some new favorites.  While I’ll be posting reviews of my favorite films from the festival, it would be impossible to review everything I ...
