  • There’s an E.T. sequel and it’s awesome
    I just finished watching E.T. for basically the first time. I only saw it one time in 1982, and 38 years later didn’t remember anything beyond the “Phone Home” shtick. I wrote this grand review about the symbolism in E.T. with a lot of thoughts tending towards the introspective. I ...

  • We’re Adding Classic Movies to the RunPee Database
    Because of Covid19 there aren’t any new blockbusters being released in theaters right now, but there’s plenty of old classic movies that we can rewatch and add to the RunPee database. We’d love it if you fired up the RunPee app to check out our Peetimes and let us know ...
  • Classic Movie Review – E.T. The Extra Terrestrial
    What an enchanting film! E.T. The Extra Terrestrial is deservedly among the greats. Steven Spielberg proved he was mighty with the movie-making. Who else can take a goofy premise (suburban boy befriends gentle alien) and make it so compelling? So buoyant and wondrous. It seems like it would be a ...
  • Classic Movie Review – Back to the Future
    Back to the Future: Witty, exciting, memorable, perfectly cast, with sparkling chemistry, a fantastic score, and immensely quotable lines. Okay, done. Movie Grade: A+ Well, gosh darn daddy-o, I should probably pen a heavier review…okay, if you insist… There’s that word again, ‘heavy.’ Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a ...
  • Classic Movie Review – Ghostbusters
    It’s hard to review really great movies, especially super amazing classics that are A+++ and can do not wrong. I want to do justice to them in the reviewing, and that’s a lot of pressure. Anyway, Ghostbusters is one of those films that in spite of how silly the premise ...
  • Movie Review – Trolls World Tour (A new movie actually *worth* watching)
    Trolls World Tour is an actual new movie and it’s out there to watch at drive-in theaters across the nation. It’s also “live” here and there in any theaters that manage to be open during the pandemic. And we now have the Peetimes on the RunPee app to help you ...
  • Classic Movie Review – Blade Runner
    A good science fiction movie leaves you thinking about characters and plot. A great science fiction movie leaves you thinking about yourself. Blade Runner is a great science fiction movie because it inspires the viewer to ask a fundamental existential question: am I really who I think I am if my ...

    No, there are not any extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Artemis Fowl. View details and movie information…
  • Original Jurassic Park Breaks Box Office Records for the Fourth Time
    You just can’t keep a 9 ton Tyrannosaurus rex down. Universal Pictures released Jurassic Park — the 1993 original — four times in theaters over the last 27 years. And every single time, it trampled box office records. Including last weekend, which is notable for several reasons: It was Father’s Day weekend, ...
  • Ranking the X-Men Movies
    Superhero ensemble films owe a huge debt to the X-Men franchise. Without the thoughtful world-building, frequent levity, and sparkling dialog characterizing the best of the X-Men films, we’d have no Marvel Cinematic Universe. No Avengers, no Endgame, no Iron Man!…just somber Batmen parading by in rubber suits. X-Men blew jaded ...
  • Movie Review – Artemis Fowl
    Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear… I was really disappointed by Artemis Fowl.  Not because it was a bad film — it wasn’t — nor because it was badly made because, again: it wasn’t. The cast was (mostly) good, the effects were spot on, and the acting was fine. My disappointment ...
  • Matrix 4 – why Keanu Reeves is excited to return to the Matrix
    Keanu Reeves spent three movies fighting to free himself from The Matrix.  Eighteen years after the last Matrix movie — Matrix Revolutions — Reeves is excited to take the blue pill this time and return to his legendary role of Neo. In a recent interview with Variety, Reeves revealed why — after ...
  • Mon Mothma to appear on Star Wars Cassian Andor show
    Remember Mon Mothma? She appears as a revolutionary leader in the classic Star Wars trilogy and the interestingly posed prequel Rogue One. In Return of the Jedi, she has that classic line about many Bothans dying to get the Death Star plans. (Most don’t recall that she’s referring to the ...
  • How do the movies in Star Wars stand up to the Bechdel test?
    Do the characters in Star Wars — movies ostensibly depicting future lives and worlds — pass the Bechdel test? I was up too late one night and decided to think this through. What is the Bechdel test, you ask? It’s generally accepted as whether a work of fiction features at least two ...
  • Every Disney Princess Movie Obsessed with Mommy Problems (and 3 that aren’t)
    Disney Princesses obsessed with mothers, missing mothers, and evil step-mothers Star Wars is all about Daddy Issues. Yet Disney has a thing for moms: missing, crazy, obsessed, or just plain evil mother figures. What’s the endless deal with parental problems? Why does this speak to us in this day and age, ...
  • 5 Older Movies We’d Love Remakes Of (And 5 That Are Perfect)
    It is a truth universally acknowledged: a single movie in possession of a large following must be in want of a remake. At least, that’s how Hollywood executives seem to see things! Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the real truth is that remakes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. And that’s even ...
  • Top 10 Animated Fantasy Movies
    Pixar’s latest adventure Onward hit cinemas last March 6, and it’s one of the only films still in theaters (at least those that are now open, including many drive-in theaters).  It’s set in a world of mythical creatures such as mermaids, unicorns, gnomes, centaurs, manticores, and elves.  I thought it ...

    If we’re really good, and really lucky, we can have nice things this summer — new movies at actual walk-in theaters near you. And not just any movies: genuine blockbusters! YAY…drumroll…. for Tenet and Mulan! After months in global lock-down and endless quarantine, people are ready to be transported to great ...
  • A New Hope: Thor Director Taika Waititi Tapped to Fix Star Wars
    Remember when Taika Waititi fixed Thor? Well, now he gets the chance to show he can fix Star Wars. Waititi was already tapped to direct the hugely popular Disney+ Star Wars TV series The Mandalorian. The serialized Bounty-Hunter-meets- premise was greeted with nearly galactic reactions of relieved happiness. Star ...
  • Passengers Rewatch Review
    I assume you have already seen Passengers. Spoilers ahead. Rewatching Passengers tonight I noticed a flaw in the plot. It was pointed out that the hibernation pods could keep them asleep, and wake them up when they arrived at Homestead II, but they didn’t have the equipment to put someone into hibernation. However, ...
  • Making movies a little better: The Martian
    The Martian is a fantastic movie. I just finished watching it for the umteenth time. It’s a masterful work in every aspect. But if I may be so bold, it could have been a little better. My Pitch Mark Watney is alone on Mars. No companionship. Not even a stuffed animal. Except ...
  • Movie Artemis Fowl Going Straight to Streaming June 12, and Why This Matters
    In a major movie news event, Disney announced they’re sending their summer blockbuster Artemis Fowl straight to streaming, bypassing any theatrical release. They’re skipping cinemas entirely. This is significant. Every other feature initially on Hollywood’s 2020 summer roster has been rescheduled to late Fall — or next year. Or, in ...
