  • 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 6 Orange Cats in Sci Fi and Fantasy Movies
    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 spoilers here. But these aren’t new films, so all should be right in the universe. Proceed at your own risk. Further ...
  • Is there anything extra during the end credits of Mortal Kombat?
    No, there are not any extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Mortal Kombat. View details and movie information…
  • 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 ...
  • Is there anything extra during the end credits of Raya and the Last Dragon?
    No, there are not any extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Raya and the Last Dragon. View details and movie information…
  • Movie Review – Raya and the Last Dragon
    Where’s the A++ button on this thing?? Raya and the Last Dragon is by far my favorite Disney film ever!! I loved it so much that me and my granddaughter stood up and clapped. There was a standing ovation in our theater. During the credits you’re shown that it took 400 ...
  • 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 ...
