  • More Powerful Than You Could Possibly Imagine
    Remember in A New Hope when Obi Wan said to Vader, “Strike me down and I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine”? As it turned out, Obi Wan didn’t become all powerful. He didn’t do much more than become the Jedi Whisperer. (Let go, Luke. Trust your feelings.) Now ...
  • Crimes of Grindelwald Prequel Fan Film – The Greater Good
    Have you seen The Greater Good, a  17-minute fan film about Dumbledore and Grindelwald? Made before the first Fantastic Beasts movie was even a thing, this little wonder tells the story of how the two powerful  wizards broke off their previously intense, long-running relationship. It also features Albus Dumbledore’s little ...
  • Notes on Final Trailer for Fantastic Beasts — The Crimes of Grindelwald
    The final trailer for Fantastic Beasts 2 – The Crimes of Grindelwald has dropped, and there are more clues and a bunch of spoilers you might wish to avoid. I’m including the trailer link and my commentary about it below, so click away now if you’re trailer-spoiler-averse. The trailer is 2 ...
  • Movie Review – SmallFoot
    It is such a relief to watch a movie I can give an A+ rating to without hesitation! It was charming, warm-hearted (albeit set in a cold place), engaging, funny, and surprisingly detailed. I especially loved the many interesting things to look at in the yeti village. I was never ...
  • Star Trek 4 Movie News Updates
    As of this weekend, we now know a few new things about the uncertain status of the on-hiatus, as-yet-unnamed Star Trek 4 movie film. For people following the saga of the Kelvin Timeline Star Trek movies, both both Chrises walked out on the planned post-Star Trek Beyond film, due to breakdowns ...
  • Movie Review – The House With A Clock In Its Walls
    I wish this film was better. It started out lively, with some nice funky humor for a while. There were good production values throughout. Unfortunately, the story went downhill fast at the middle mark, and became a dreadful muddle by the end. I watched the children in the theater to ...
  • 1st Captain Marvel Trailer Finally Drops – Comments and Speculation
    We’ve just seen the first trailer for Captain Marvel, in the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic  Universe…and it honestly doesn’t show much.  It lasts a little less than two minutes. It shows Brie Larson’s character (Carol Danvers, AKA Captain Marvel) falling to the Earth, and then a variety of nano-scenes ...
  • 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 Review – The Predator
    This was the best Predator movie besides the very first with Arnold in 1987. The Predator did a great job revitalizing the franchise in a way that the subsequent ones (from the middling Predator 2 sequel through the two AvP disasters) didn’t. If you loved the classic Predator original, you’ll ...
  • Concert Review – The Movie Music of John Williams
    I’m not a huge fan of live music, but I AM a movie lover. The best, most iconic movies are usually supported by an amazing soundtrack. Think of some of the top films of our time…now imagine them without a stirring score. Imagine the 1977 Star Wars without The Imperial ...
  • Movie Review – Doctor Strange
    Weird, weird, weird. Yes, in a film pointedly titled Strange, this is very bizarre stuff. I haven’t seen the character in comic book media, but I imagine it took until our current technology to make all this mental scat look so good, so pretty, on film. Folding cities, broken mirror landscapes, ...
  • Jurassic Park Ride Goes Extinct
    I got to return to the CA Universal’s Jurassic Park ride this summer, before it closed, not knowing it was on its way out. The ride, yes, felt old and needed refreshing (many of the dinosaurs weren’t moving anymore),  but it was still a joyous experience. I even wrote it up ...
  • The Predator final trailer
    I was underwhelmed after I saw the first few trailers for the latest installment in the Predator universe — however, this latest trailer shows the tone of the movie to be more humorous, with good fun action, than the previous trailers did. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50_Ala5BKBo Here’s why I’m the most excited about this movie: it’s ...
  • Movie Review – Kin
    Personally, I didn’t like this movie. I was expecting some sci-fi action and a futuristic dystopia…and what I got was a boring gangster film. Seriously, not my gig. I would have walked out if I didn’t have to cover it for RunPee. I’m actually mad at this film: it presented ...
  • 30+ Groundhog Day Type Movies – The Ultimate Repeating Day Loop List
      Groundhog Day is February 2nd in the US, and it’s a truly bizarre national holiday. The premise: a large rodent might see its shadow, predicting when spring will or won’t come. How does one celebrate this, unless they live in Punxsutawney? How long does it take to start thinking you are ...
  • Why Vision Could Lift Thor’s Hammer
    While Thor’s hammer is now crushed, there are still some unanswered questions about who could lift it and why, and who is considered “worthy.” What is worthy, exactly? And why could an an artificial being like The Vision lift it so effortlessly? Of course, there are the meta answers: the production ...
  • Star Wars A New Hope – Symphony & Movie
    This week I was treated to an outdoor, live symphony in San Diego (at the Embarcadero Marina Park South, August 18, 2018) playing to a large screen-film showing of Star Wars: A New Hope.  To say it was spellbinding would be an understatement. I haven’t seen A New Hope (just called ...
  • Movie Review – A.X.L.
    In all my years as Runpee Mom, I’ve never given a movie the lowest grade possible. Allow me to expound on why AXL took me to the desert wasteland of F-. Watching this ‘robot dog’ being brutalized by a series of nefarious characters hit me like a gut punch. The movie ...
  • How The Avengers Get Off Titan After Infinity War
    Be it known — spoilers ahead for Infinity War and Ant Man & the Wasp.  If you’re up to date with the 20 current Avengers-universe movies, you might recall there are some heroes left behind on Thanos’ home world of Titan, presumably stranded. How will those “left behind” by the dusting ...
  • Star Trek Movies Lose Both Chrises
    Paramount’s rebooted Star Trek movie franchise has a Chris Crisis. Or maybe we should call this A Tale of Two Chrises.  As of this week, the current Trek feature films lost both of their actors named Chris — as in Pine (James T. Kirk) and Hemsworth (James T. Kirk’s late father George).  ...
  • Star Trek Characters We Should See Again on the Picard Show
    Sir Patrick Stewart, in an emotional surprise speech this month at the  2018 Las Vegas Star Trek Convention, announced that Jean-Luc Picard is back. CBS, on their All-Access subscription streaming channel, will be gifting us a new Star Trek show centered around the beloved Picard character. It’s set to premier ...
  • RIP Mjölnir – Who Can Lift Thor’s Hammer?
    Who could pick up Mjölnir, beloved Hammer of Thor, God of Thunder? Who is considered worthy? What does worthy even mean in this context? This topic is no longer relevant, post-Infinity War, but lists are fun, but the immensity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe lends itself to fun lists. So…who besides Thor ...
  • 10 Ways Ant Man Could Escape the Quantum Realm
    Spoilers for Infinity War, and of course Ant Man & the Wasp…don’t bother reading if you haven’t seen those two movies. This will all be gibberish to you anyway if you’re not up to date. Onward… So, that ending in Ant Man 2. It’s nice that Scott Lang finally has a ...
