Sci-Fi & Fantasy

  • 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 – Riddick Pitch Black is one of my favorite movies ever, and I’m a little uncertain how I feel about Riddick. First off, I can easily say that it isn’t as good as the original — but that’s a very high standard to be compared to. The best thing I can say ...
  • Movie Review – Mortal Instruments If you loved the book, Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones, then you’ll love the movie. I base this on the fact that there was a smattering of applause at the end of the movie coming from a group of people who all sat together. They were the die-hard fans of ...
  • Movie Review – Elysium In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a huge scifi fan. That means I’m really hard on scifi movies. They have to be outstanding for me to give them a good rating. Unfortunately Elysium orbits a long, LONG, way from outstanding. If you’re not a particularly big scifi fan then you ...
  • Movie Review – Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters I must admit, I enjoyed Percy Jackson much more than I expected. It isn’t the sort of movie that will win any awards — however, the craftsmanship was first rate. It’s a good story that is well paced throughout. In fact, I found myself getting lost in the story, which ...
  • 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 – Oblivion This film will certainly be enjoyed by die hard sci-fi lovers for its beautiful visuals — it’s particularly wonderful if you see it in IMAX. The dystopian story of an Earth post-alien invasion starts off a little slow, but is intriguing. There’s a genius scene in a swimming pool. Half-way through 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 ...
  • Movie review: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 Epic ending to an epic saga! I enjoyed the other movies but I loved this one. Luckily I got to see the midnight showing. Personally I love these crowds. When something crazy goes down on the screen the midnighters have something to say about it. The theater was roaring during ...

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 – ...
