  • Movie Review – Beauty and The Beast (live action version) The live action Beauty and The Beast is competent, but not hugely compelling. Please share and help RunPee grow:FacebookTwitterPinterestRedditEmail
  • Movie Review – The LEGO Batman Movie – One of the BEST Batman films, ever I liked this better than the original Lego Movie – this one is skewed a little more sophisticated for the grownups – but still has lots of color and spectacle for the kiddos. It’s a very charming film, with a surprisingly good storyline. Things move quickly, and there is a ...
  • Movie Review – La La Land As always, I address my reviews to the target audience. If you enjoy musicals, La La Land will be your favorite movie of the year. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone were so absolutely adorable, and their on screen chemistry just about set the film on fire. If you’re not a fan ...
  • Movie Review – 10 Cloverfield Lane   10 Cloverfield Lane is an excellent movie. The only reason I’m not giving it an A is that it isn’t the kind of movie I’d want to see again. The main thing that makes the movie enjoyable is that you don’t know where it’s going. That said, I can’t say ...
  • Is there anything extra during the end credits of Doctor Strange? Yes, there are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Doctor Strange. View details and movie information… Please share and help RunPee grow:FacebookTwitterPinterestRedditEmail
  • Movie Review – The Legend of Tarzan Going in, I expected this move to be horrible – it wasn’t – but I’m not saying it turned out to be great either – it isn’t. I was fully expecting that Samuel L. Jackson’s role wouldn’t be much more than a cameo. I was pleasantly surprise that SLJ’s role was ...
  • Movie Review – Sausage Party – An R Rated Animated Film with Surprising Heart and A Real Message   This may look like a simple movie full of crass humor, but it’s more than that. There is actually a story in there about religion, and prejudices, that gives the story a solid framework on which to hang an abundance of crassness. There is a never ending supply of sexual innuendo ...
  • Movie Review – Deadpool Grade: A Not only is Deadpool a hilarious movie, it also works as an amazingly accurate barometer for gauging relationships. For instance, it can be scientifically proven that the number of times a married man laughs during this movie is inversely proportional to how much their mother-in-law likes them. Conversely, married women ...
  • Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie review Grade: A- I can safely say that SW:TFA is the 3rd best Star Wars movie in the franchise. And let’s be clear, it would take a miracle for JJ Abrams to create something better than New Hope or Empire Strikes Back. This is easily the funniest movie in the franchise. Almost, but ...
  • Movie Review – The Martian Matt Damon is at the top of his game. It’s an enormous challenge to ask an actor to spend so much of the movie acting in a vacuum (no pun intended), with few opportunities to interact with other characters. Matt’s charm and charisma make every scene he’s in shine. Some critics ...
  • Movie Review – Minions Another outstanding movie in the Despicable franchise. Heads up parents: you’re going to laugh right along with the kiddies, and even when the kiddies aren’t laughing. The sound track for Minions is right out of the 60’s and heavy on The Beatles, so even grandparents will be entertained. I liked the ...
  • Jurassic World – Movie Review Grade: B+ I have mixed feelings about the movie. The story, and most of the characters, drag the movie down. I’d give that part of the movie a C-, at best. Chris Pratt is definitely a bright spot. He’s perfectly cast for the roll of Owen — the raptor wrangler. He can ...
  • Movie Review – LUCY “Lucy” is like two movies mashed together: one is enjoyable and explores interesting questions; the other is lame and hyper-violent. Rating this movie is a question of how to balance these two. Where this movie really fails is in it’s brevity. Not including the credits it’s only an hour and twenty-two ...
  • Movie Review – Edge of Tomorrow (Live. Die. Repeat.) I love Groundhog Day stories and I’ve been looking forward to this movie since the first time I saw the previews. I was *hoping* it would rank as one of the classic Sci-Fi movies. However, I expected it would just be a good movie that might be worth rewatching again ...
  • Movie Review – The LEGO Movie Do you like Legos? Did you have any idea a movie about LEGOS would be so much fun? The Lego Movie was cute, charming and funny. There’s a great cast of voices, and lots of action. Kids will enjoy this movie, and the parents, especially dads, will be eager to get home ...
  • Movie Review – The Hobbit 2: The Desolation of Smaug I’m torn between feeling that Desolation of Smaug sometimes feels like a visit to an amusement park, where you spend all your time either riding a roller coaster or waiting in line for the next ride to start, or it feels like a fresh interpretation of a classic fantasy. Note: One ...
  • Movie Review – Gravity I enjoyed Gravity, but didn’t love it. I’m not going to grade the movie on its scientific accuracy because if I did, it would get a D, at best. Instead I’ll only consider the story aspects. My biggest beef with Gravity is the character development. The movie is only 90 minutes ...
  • Movie Review – Turbo – Faster & Funnier Than a Snail’s Pace Turbo was a charming little movie about dreams and perseverance. There was lots of laughter from the children in the audience, and more than a few chuckles from the parents. The characters were cute and interesting. Samuel Jackson, as the voice of Whiplash, and Paul Giamatti, as the brother Chet, were outstanding. The ...
  • Movie Review – The Hobbit It’s such a pleasure to return to Middle-Earth. Peter Jackson and his team have masterfully recreated and expanded the universe according to Tolkien. I know from the production diaries, created during the filming of *The Hobbit*, that the undertaking was massive. Not just in the technical challenges of filming at 48fps ...
  • Movie Review – Rise of the Guardians – A Great Holiday Film About Jack Frost A visually stunning movie that is destined to become a holiday classic, along with Rudolph and The Grinch. The overarching theme of The Rise of The Guardians revolves around Jack Frost finding his identity, and how important beliefs are in shaping reality. The importance of “finding your center” is explored by multiple ...
  • Analysis of Inception Warning: This is analysis is full of spoilers. This is meant for people read after they have seen the movie. If you would like to read my movie review of Inception – no spoilers – then go here. As soon as the movie is over you’re left wondering: Is Cobb -Leonardo DiCaprio – ...
  • Movie Review – How to Train Your Dragon (No Spoilers) How to Train Your Dragon was a good solid kids movie the whole family can enjoy. There were a handful of fun action scenes that appeal to kids. I was surprised it had a PG rating instead of a G. The fighting scenes are very cartoonish: nothing more violent than ...
  • Movie Review – Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs – An Appealing Kid Flick in Any Weather This might be the best children’s move of the summer, and I think it will appeal to a lot of adults as well. Visually, I think it will speak most to children in the 3-6 age range. The action and physical humor will appeal to the 7-10 age range and ...
  • Movie Review – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Let me start by saying that I’m not a big Harry Potter fan. I’ve seen all of the movies and thought they were okay. But I haven’t read any of the books. And I’m a huge Lord of the Rings fan – both of the books and movies. I must confess ...
  • Review: Transformers – Revenge of the Fallen   The sequel to the 2007 blockbuster “Transformers” is out and it is rockin! When I see trailers for movies I decide (because of my ever-shrinking budget) whether it is going to be a “wait for the DVD” movie or “go see it in the theatre” movie. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” ...
