  • Yes, it’s about Dune – The Lyrics to Fatboy Slim’s Weapon of Choice
    If you know anything at all about Dune, the grand brick-sized novel by Frank Herbert, you know there are gigantic, dangerous, and strangely helpful Sandworms featured in it. It doesn’t matter if you’re a fan or hater of the Lynch movie version, Sy Fy’s mini-series, or the potential interpretation by ...
  • Why Fantastic Beasts 2 is not so Fantastic
    I feel like a guilty Gryffindor, A Harry Potter heel, and a bad geek, because I have such confused thoughts about Fantastic Beasts: the Crimes of Grindelwald. I’m supposed to love it: I’m a crazy fan for everything Harry Potter. I even came around on the first Fantastic Beasts & ...
  • Why The Last Jedi Sucked
    Did you like Star Wars: The Last Jedi? Are you still on the fence? I don’t think anyone would say it doesn’t look pretty. It looks expensive, and on the surface seems like it belongs in the Star Wars galaxy (the one that is long ago and far away). It’s got ...
  • A Very Harry Cruise – Hogwarts at Sea
    I can’t put my jaw back in place. It dropped when I heard there was going to be a week-long luxury Harry Potter cruise. I want more information. Also, I want $4,000 to pay for this. My dream Harry Potter cruise would have Hogwarts teachers, with classes in Defense Against The ...
  • Can Dune be done? Should Dune be done? Bringing Long Books to the Screen
    Until the last generation, when Peter Jackson proved The Lord of the Rings could not only be made into a successful film — but be so off-the-charts good that it took home 11 Oscar Awards — it was unheard of to succeed at translating most of the great sci-fi and ...
  • Quiz – Mary Poppins
    These questions are taken from the 1964 Disney movie of Mary Poppins. I’ve made this quiz fairly easy, keeping in mind that the movie is over a half a century old. Best of luck! With The Return of Mary Poppins this Christmas, expectations are high — Emily Blunt will probably ...
  • Movie Review – Ralph Breaks the Internet
      I didn’t see the first Ralph movie, but it turns out that doesn’t matter. Everything interesting is explained, and the fun begins immediately. I’ll say, right off the bat, that this movie is worth seeing on the big screen, although I look forward to having this on DVD so I can ...
  • Movie Review – Robin Hood
      First off, I’m going to say this movie doesn’t deserve an involved review, but I’ll tackle it anyway. It’s bad. My theater was full last night, but when talking to others after the film ended, they weren’t impressed. It’s a disposable version of the old story, adding nothing to the ...
  • Fantastic Beasts 2 Review from a Harry Potter Novice
    I’m not a Harry Potter fan. Don’t get me wrong; I like the stories. I think they are rich and compelling. But I’ve never read the books — it’s on the list — and I personally wouldn’t bother seeing any of the movies on opening weekend if it wasn’t my ...
  • Hollywood Celebrities Mourn Stan Lee on Twitter
    You can’t read this article about the legendary Stan Lee (who died this Monday at the age of 95) and not be moved, and a little choked up, by the wonderful list of loving tribute Tweets. And not only does this post scroll through messages from the expected Marvel actors ...
  • Movie Review – Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald
      I don’t know what happened with this movie. It looked great from the trailers, and seemed like the story would make sense. The film itself, though, was a big beautiful mess. I’m not even sure what I saw. I’m essentially a Harry Potter expert. I’ve read the books dozens of times, ...
  • Quiz – Learn About Marvel Studio’s Great Stan Lee
    We just heard (11/12/18) about the sad passing of legendary Marvel Comics superhero creator/movie co-producer Stan Lee, at the impressive age of 95. Mr. Lee had so many influential superhero characters to his name: it’s impossible for anyone not to have been touched in some way by Spider-Man, The Hulk, Iron ...
  • RIP Stan Lee – you will be missed
    We just heard today (11/12/18) about the passing of legendary Marvel Comics superhero creator and movie co-producer Stan Lee, at the age of 95. Not only was he beloved for introducing the world to such enduring characters as as The Hulk, Thor, Black Panther, Dr. Strange, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and the ...
  • Every Harry Potter Film, Ranked
    RunPee has an early showing of Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindelwald next Tuesday, November 13th, three days before the film officially opens. I’ll be attending in full Hogwarts robes, with my cherished Elder Wand, getting early Peetimes. In any case, this is as good a time as any ...
  • Pixar Fast Fact Video – Easter Eggs in Incredibles 2
    Be happy, Pixar fans, as the galaxy’s best animated superhero movie sequel is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray. To remind  you how good Incredibles 2 is, I’m introducing you to a duo of video superheros themselves, the Super Carlin Brothers. These guys love Pixar, and came up with the mind-blowing, probably ...
  • 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 ...
  • Best Rock, Pop Songs in Non-Musical Movies
    If you love movies, you’re probably an aficionado of films using rock or pop hits in their stories as well. You can put this mental connection to good use if you run playlists on Alexa/Google Home/cell phone/whatever, loading it up to play songs evoking your favorite films. Use the lists ...
  • Once More, with Ant Man. Why him, and why now?
    With Ant Man & The Wasp now released on DVD and Blu-Ray, people are struck again with how this movie might tie in with the greater Marvel oeuvre, and wonder anew why the light-weight Ant Man 2 arrived so closely after the heavy ending of Infinity War. — Spoilers ahead for ...
  • Avengers 4 Trailer Hints and Rumors
    Several people online are reporting in with seeing the as-yet untitled Avengers 4 trailer, which is expected to drop by mid-November. Here’s the link to the extended observations of the Avengers 4 trailer, possibly titled Avengers: Annihilation. The notes are detailed and sound authentic enough, given the final events of Avengers: Infinity War. Keep in ...
  • 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 ...
  • Movie Review – Suspiria
    As Suspiria ended, for the first time in my career, I didn’t have a clue as to what I had just seen. Fortunately, there was a very pleasant young man seated near me who helped shed some light on this confusing piece of work. He referred back to the original, ...
  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – Live, in Concert
    I love attending movie showings at venues that set a live orchestra to movie soundtracks. I’ve attended a few of the Harry Potter ones, most recently Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (one of the best Harry Potter films. IMO). On August 5th of 2018, I got to enjoy ...
  • Movie Review – The Nutcracker and the Four Realms
    I’m giving Nutcracker and the Four Realms an A. It was simply stunning; an absolutely gorgeous film the entire family will love. The only reason it’s not an A+ is because the Sugar Plum Fairy was really awkward to watch. She’s played by the normally fantastic Keira Knightly, who is ...
  • How to Dress Like Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter
    I like to cosplay anything from Harry Potter. I’ve got looks for Hermione, Luna Lovegood, Harry himself in a gender-switched role, a gender bent Snape, Tonks, Dolores Umbridge, Professor Trelawny…and my favorite costume, Bellatrix Lestrange. I’ve worn her now to both the Intergalacticon and the San Diego Comic Con.  She ...
  • What is a MacGuffin? Top Movie MacGuffins, Explained
    A MacGuffin is any object that drives the plot and motivates the characters in a movie. You might have seen the name “MacGuffins” over bar bistros in the lobbies of many AMC theaters. That’s an industry in-joke. It sounds like the name of an Irish pub, but it’s really a ...
