  • Colossal – a great movie you probably never heard of
    I was entertained throughout the roller coaster ride of Colossal that goes from confusion, to joy, to… a very, very, dark place… and then wraps it up beautifully. Please share and help RunPee grow:FacebookTwitterPinterestRedditEmail
  • Disease Expert Breaks Down Pandemic Scenes From Film & TV
    This is a great scene breakdown of pandemic movies by a CDC expert. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feGHmv_eDcw What Brian Amman had to say about procedures and equipment was enlightening. I’ll bet this guy has been called up numerous times since making this video to act as a consultant. Brian hit on my personal pet peeve: viruses ...
  • Is there anything extra during the end credits of Bloodshot?
    No, there are not any extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Bloodshot. View details and movie information… Please share and help RunPee grow:FacebookTwitterPinterestRedditEmail
  • Movie Review – Bloodshot
    Nothing to see here. Move along. That pretty much sums up Bloodshot. There’s no point it seeing it unless you need your Vin Diesel fix, and you’re depressed that F9 has been pushed back to April 2021 due to CoVid19. Instead of braving the virus just to see this movie, then let ...
  • Movie Review – OnWard
    OnWard is just another average Pixar movie. Average for Pixar; better than most anything else. The trailer reveals the gist of the story, but the central theme is left out. I won’t ruin it for you here by saying what it is, but it has the Pixar magic. What Pixar does consistently– ...
  • Movie Review – The Invisible Man
    There’s no question that Elisabeth Moss gets an A+ for her performance in this movie. The movie may be titled The Invisible Man, but it was all about the Invisible Man’s wife — Cecilia. Elisabeth Moss is in almost every single scene of the movie; plus, she’s the only actor in ...
  • Is there anything extra during the end credits of The Invisible Man?
    No, there are not any extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of The Invisible Man. View details and movie information… Please share and help RunPee grow:FacebookTwitterPinterestRedditEmail
  • SKYWATCH — a Sci-Fi Short on YouTube starring Jude Law
    SKYWATCH is a well-made SciFi short video created by young filmmaker Colin Levy. Best of all, he pulled off the impossible: getting A-list actor Jude Law to star in his video. If you’re a fan of SciFi shorts, or Jude Law, I highly recommend watching the short. Then watch the ...
  • Star Trek The Next Generation – Playing Poker with Superheroes
    I always wondered at the Bridge Crew of The Next Generation of the Enterprise blithely playing poker together. Even while Data says in Cause and Effect, “The cards are sufficiently randomized” (and actually, they aren’t in this case), that doesn’t mean a thing to the senior staff of the NCC-1701-D. ...
  • How to be quiet watching A Quiet Place 2
    When I watched A Quiet Place in 2018, it was a movie EVENT. No one knew how good this film was going in, but the audience quickly realized that they had to be absolutely silent, or get killed by the deadly critters who can’t see, but will hunt you if ...
  • The Most Personality-Driven AI in Cinema
    AI add a lot to cinema. People have been writing AI characters since before movies even existed, and it’s no surprise that they’ve only become more commonplace over the years. Although there are certainly some AI that serve a technical purpose more than anything else, many AI also exist as ...
  • Is there anything extra during the end credits of Gretel & Hansel?
    No, there are not any extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Gretel & Hansel. View details and movie information… Please share and help RunPee grow:FacebookTwitterPinterestRedditEmail
  • Movie Review – Gretel & Hansel
    Be advised, I, RunPee Mom, usually don’t do horror movies. That distinction belongs to RunPee Sis — however, she flaked out on me last night. So the task (one might even call it a burden in this case) fell to me. I’ll do my best to grade  Gretel & Hansel ...
  • Star Trek does Groundhogs Day! The Next Generation Episode: Cause and Effect
    What’s strange is that this episode of Star Trek: the Next Generation does a Groundhog Day theme a year before Bill Murray’s Groundhog Day movie comes into play. While there are a lot of GHD plots in various genre and film and TV shows, I think Star Trek’s might be ...
  • Contagion – a PSA and movie review
    What makes the movie Contagion so dramatic is that it’s not overly dramatic. This isn’t a virus that wipes out half the world population. There’s no bleeding from the eyes, no walking dead. However, director Steven Soderbergh manages to turn an everyday scene in a coffee shop into the horror movie equivalent ...
  • Star Wars – A Galaxy of Daddy Issues
    Daddy issues. What would Star Wars be without them? And how many Star Wars movies center around this one big Oedipal question? I have to wonder about George Lucas’ extreme father fixation. Darth Vader even means ‘dark father’, which is a seriously big clue right off the bat.  Daddy Issues are ...
  • What to rewatch before Star Trek Picard
    I haven’t seen the new Picard show yet, but I’m extremely excited, and according to the trailers, it picks up where the long-running (non-JJ Abrams) Star Trek TV and movie series left off… Just 20 years later. And Patrick Stewart, like the rest of us, are 20 years older. Will ...
  • Movie Rant – Why I hated Underwater
    I love Aliens and The Abyss; I’m a sucker for disaster and survival films, even if they aren’t wholly original. So, I was looking forward to watching Underwater. I caught it last night after rewatching Frozen 2 (and which I preferred to the original). But did I like Underwater? In a ...
  • Is the girl from A Quiet Place deaf in real life?
    Is the girl from A Quiet Place deaf in real life? In a word, yes. The girl, aptly played by Millicent Simmonds, is deaf and speaks American Sign Language. And she’ll definitely be in the follow up film, but presumably older, wiser, and quieter. Representing Disability in A Quiet Place Actor-director John ...
  • First View Movie Review: Star Wars – the Battle for Endor
    Because I’m a crazy geek and want to understand all the canon Star Wars material out there, I decided to view all the ‘extra’ shows and movies Lucasfilm created, some of which may or may not be part of the larger narrative. Have you seen The Mandalorian yet? It’s amazing. ...
  • The Most Anticipated Science Fiction & Fantasy Shows of 2020
    In a post-Endgame, post-Star Wars Saga world, I have a hole in my soul where movie anticipation used to live. I had a lot of anticipation in 2019 for the new Terminator film, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Men in Black International, Zombieland 2, and Jumanji 3. All let me down in ...
  • Movie Review – DoLittle
    Charming, I think, is the best word to describe this movie. But, make no mistake, this is a movie made to appeal to young children. The plot is simplistic and the action cartoonish. You should rethink seeing this movie if you’re only in it for more Iron Man, but with a ...
  • Willow Revival added to Disney+ line up (And Top 15 Willow Movie Quotes)
    Disney Plus recently announced a new TV show based on Ron Howard’s 1988 flick Willow — the goofy yet sentimental pre-Lord of the Rings Lucasfilm fantasy starring Warwick Davis and Val Kilmer. The announcement is here. I‘m cool with a Willow revival. Especially if they get Davis back on board. ...
  • The Star Wars Holiday Special …Is it really that bad?
    Is it really that bad? Yes. Yes it is. With a few moments that were faintly amusing. Created using the real-to-goodness original cast of Star Wars from A New Hope, The Star Wars Holiday Special was an earnest  1978 TV movie featuring awful production values, clearly stoned actors, and some really ...
  • Critic Movie Reviews v RunPee Family Reviews
    Not having professional or writer-educated staff (besides First Officer/COO Jill Florio, who was a journalist and magazine editor back when people still had real jobs), RunPee’s reviews are written from the heart, and are hopefully more useful than what we get from the well-paid critics of Rotten Tomatoes…  Because we ...
