  • Movie Review: Thor 3 – Ragnorak (Jilly’s POV)
    Thor 3, AKA Ragnarok, was incredibly engaging and hard to tear my eyes from. It’s now in my top tier of MCU movies, beaten only by the first Guardians of the Galaxy. Hemsworth’s slightly dim but mighty character is a joy, from his 4th wall-breaking open, to the mid-credit end, ...
  • New Black Panther Trailer is Fantastic – Watch the Video Show Off Wakanda
    I saw the new Black Panther trailer when I went to see Thor  – Ragnarok, and it looks GORGEOUS. Sumptuous. Luxuriously detailed and kind of intense. Seriously, I could watch this preview all day. The Marvel Cinematic Universe sure knows how to create anticipation for their constellation of movies. It’s all ...
  • Movie Review – Interstellar
    My one word review would be: disappointed. I think Christopher Nolan tried too hard to make a modern day 2001 A Space Odyssey. The ships looked much like 2001. There were long, drawn out scenes of docking. The robot TARS simultaneously pays homage to HAL and the monolith. And of course ...
  • Blade Runner: 2049 review
    Blade Runner 2049 was almost an awesome movie. It was a worthy sequel that felt “right”, like settling in after a long break (of actual decades — in both real and movie time) to catch up on old events. Even the new characters seemed to carry echoes of previous incarnations. ...
  • Movie Review – The LEGO Ninjago Movie (the least exciting Lego film for adults)
    Here it is in a nutshell, parents; if your kiddies love watching Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, then they’ll have a laugh out loud good time watching this movie. There’s no need for me to go into the technical aspect of the movies — kids don’t care about that stuff. They ...

  • Movie Review – Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
    This is a hard one to rate. It was super duper amazingly gorgeous. A+ visuals, almost Avatar-levels of creative beauty…it was definitely above the best of Guardians of the Galaxy’s fantastical “Knowwhere” and “Ego” scenes (stuff I generally tout as the prettiest sci-fi scenes in recent cinema). However, Valererian had a ...
  • Movie Review – Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2
    There are two reviews here; Dan’s and Jill’s, enjoy! Dan says: The first GotG is, I think, the very best of the Marvel movies. While GotGv2 isn’t quite as good, it certainly didn’t disappoint. The theme of the story (father/son reunion) isn’t anything new, but writer/director James Gunn weaves a thread into ...
  • Movie Review – Life
    I don’t even know how to rate this one. For the record, I absolutely hated it. I’m even the target audience, according to the trailers, as I LOVE science fiction and space movies. However, you should all know this is a straight body horror film, with gristly, gruesome, and horrific ...
  • 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 ...
