  • Captain Marvel – Video and Lyrics to Just a Girl by No Doubt
    Captain Marvel is a girl. We kind of all knew that in advance.  But while her origin story sends the girl power message a bit over the top, Just A Girl by No Doubt still really works, cinematically. It’s a fun, feel-good movie moment. The entire film’s 90s sound track is ...
  • First Star Wars Skywalker Trailer Breakdown
    I remember seeing Return of the Jedi in the theater at a very young age and falling in love with ewoks. For most of my life, there were only three Star Wars films (and a brilliant Mel Brooks parody of them). And the vague promise that maybe someday George Lucas ...
  • Avengers Easter Egg – Where We Saw That Random Kid in Endgame Before in the MCU
    Who is that teenager from Avengers Endgame standing there at the end with our heroes — but a little apart —  looking vaguely familiar? With no explanation given? It’s like Broom Boy from The Last Jedi, all over again. Who is that kid? Want to try to guess where you’ve seen ...
  • Avoiding Endgame Spoilers – Your #AES Mission
    Many of you have your tickets for the Thursday (April 25th) evening premier of Avengers Endgame at 6:00 pm Eastern Time, or at least only a few hours later.  You can’t wait to see the movie opening night, plus you don’t want to worry about getting spoiled by those who ...
  • Warning – Avengers Endgame is not going to be Peetime friendly
    You might be surprised to learn that finding Peetimes in a movie isn’t the hardest part of the RunPee job. Ofttimes we find great Peetimes but get stuck on picking out the best Peetime Cue: a brief line of dialog — or description of some action — that stands out ...
  • A Open Response to Kevin Feige (re: Using the Bathroom During Endgame)
    Dear Mr. Feige, We here at RunPee love Marvel movies more than Nick Fury loves cats. And flerkens. We are super excited for Avengers: Endgame. So much so that we did two breakdowns of the first trailer: Avengers 4 Endgame – First Trailer Review A Slightly More Than Casual Fan’s Reaction to Avenger ...
  • Movie Review – The Incredible Hulk – Not Bad. Not MCU Good. Watch it and move on to better things…
      I finally finished watching The Incredible Hulk last night. The big fight scene with The Abomination is awful. Looks terribly fake and is surprisingly boring. I wanted to skip the whole scene. My idea of a great Peetime is a terrible action sequence. #DontBoreMe I expect better from the MCU. But ...
  • The entire MCU Movie Order – Several Options for your pre-Avengers Endgame Watch or Rewatch
    Want to watch, or rewatch, all the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? (Aka, the MCU.) The first thing you have to figure out is what order you’re going to watch them in. There’s more than one way to go about this, and I’ll break down the list into a ...
  • A Happy Shazam Review – A delightful time in the DC universe (for once)
    I’d heard from the rest of the RunPee Family that Shazam was a disappointing remake, even though I had big hopes DC would finally put out a fun, lithe, winsome feature, with a superhero I could have fun with (unlike Batman, Supes and the rest of the grim gang). Sadly, ...
  • Movie Review – Hellboy – Wow. So, so, so bad.
    Going into the movie I didn’t expect much. The trailer looked promising, so I gave the movie a pre-movie rating of 75/100 in the Peeple’s Poll in the RunPee app. Right from the start the movie had problems. They launched directly into a voice-over narration — rarely a good choice. (I ...
  • Do you know what SHAZAM Stands For?
    Shazam is not actually a name.  It’s not an expletive either, although shouting SHAZAM! sounds like one. Shazam is shorthand for various mythical gods and demi-gods who lend their immense powerful attributes to a chosen DC Champion. Do you know offhand who these mythological Shazam characters reference? Maybe you can guess. ...
  • Did YOU Survive The Snap? You may as well get this over with…
    It’s been a year ago now, at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. Almost as soon as Thanos got his “mitts” on every stone for the The Infinity Gauntlet, he snapped his giant purple fingers and snuffed out half of all living beings in the universe — people both  good ...
  • Ask The Magic 8 Ball – Will I need the RunPee app during Avengers Endgame?
    Avengers: Endgame is confirmed as over THREE bladder bursting hours long — and every report says you won’t want to miss a single second of it  — not even during the credits. Trust the Magic 8 Ball to prophesize if you’ll need the RunPee app: RunPee will absolutely have Peetimes opening night, ...
  • Spoiler Avoidance Strategies If You Can’t See Endgame Opening Night
    Chances are good most Marvel fans won’t get to see the long-awaited Avengers: Endgame film on April 26th’s opening night. There just won’t be any tickets left. If you’ve been following the 22-movie superhero saga, waiting will be hard to handle. Damn hard. Some of us are feverish with hope ...
  • Movie Review – Shazam! – Great for Tweens, Less So for Adults
    I’ll start by setting the context: I love action/superhero movies, but never read any comics. So, I’m basing this review strictly on how I see the movie, not how it compares to any other body of work. The Good: While I definitely didn’t like the movie, I’m sure young boys under 12 ...
  • Avengers Endgame Tickets Selling for $9,199 on Ebay as MCU Fans Lose Their Minds
    People are buying Avengers: Endgame opening night tickets for $500 a piece on eBay. Yes. We live in a world where this is now a thing. …UPDATE 4/6/19: There is now a sold listing on eBay with pair of tickets for $9,199 for April 28. (See screenshot below.)That’s two nights AFTER ...
  • The 59 Hour MCU Rewatch Marathon Means the RunPee App is a MUST Have for Your Bladder
    AMC Theaters announced they are doing a 59 hour movie marathon of all 22 MCU movies before the premier of Avengers: Endgame. That’s everything and everyone in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, from Iron Man 1 (2008) to Captain Marvel (2019)…followed by an early screening of Endgame. We are talking 59 hours and ...
  • Is Shazam Part of the DC Universe or a Stand-Alone Film?
    Rest assured, there is an actual answer here. According to every reliable internet source, Shazam is indeed set within the larger universe of the DC superheroes, at least from the ‘official DCEU starting point’ with Man of Steel, in 2013. Just so we’re all clear, DCEU stands for the DC Extended ...
  • 19 Entry-Level Horror Movies for the Squeamish
    Horror movies aren’t for everyone. But sometimes a film will come around that everyone can enjoy, even if you’re a little (or a lot) nervous about seeing it. To sum: if you found you could handle the scarier episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and The X-Files, you’ll be okay with ...
  • The Ending of Endgame – Breaking News
    From RunPee HQ: We have new information leaked about the end scene of Endgame. A reliable contact at Marvel Studios just informed RunPee about the upcoming Avengers: Endgame post-credit scene. Picture this: Tony Stark suddenly wakes in a cave in Afghanistan. The ENTIRE story up to now has been nothing more than ...
  • Peetimes Coming for Avengers Endgame BEFORE OPENING NIGHT
    The scheduled runtime for Avengers Endgame is 3:02. That’s three hours and two bladder cramping minutes. And you know there will be extra scenes, so don’t think you can skip out on the end credits. [UPDATE 1: Surprisingly, there are no extra scenes, but there is an audio-only extra at the very ...
  • Movie Review – Dumbo – A live action remake your kids will enjoy
    If you have a toddler, Dumbo is one of the few movies in the theater now that is specifically for your child. It’s PG-rated, so your kid won’t come home and ask you questions you don’t know how to answer. If you are worried about animal mistreatment with the circus ...
  • The Matrix After 20 Years – A Retrospective: A Different Kind of Hero, a New Kind of Science Fiction
    The year was 1999 and all any sci-fi fan could think about was: finally, another Star Wars movie. Had Phantom Menace come out in the age of social media it would have been, well, pretty much what we’re seeing with Avengers: Endgame right now. But, I remember reading an article online ...
  • Dumbo – Lyrics and Video to the Original Disney Classic Song Baby Mine
    If you don’t mind a having a little cry, watch this original 1941 version of the scene where infant Dumbo is too briefly reunited with mother Jumbo, locked in chains for the crime of protecting her only baby. I can barely type this without tearing up, but it’s one of the ...
  • Marvel Phase 4 Predictions – Some MCU Sure-Fire Guesses
    While Marvel isn’t confirming which films will be filling which dates in Phase 4 until after Avengers: Endgame hits theaters, there are some things we do know.  Black Widow’s stand-alone film will be one of them.  Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will also be one, but it will be ...
