  • Captain Marvel vs the Internet Trolls – A Common New Film Controversy
    Even before Captain Marvel began battling the Skrulls in theaters on March 7, she was facing another foe online: internet trolls.  On Rotten Tomatoes, the comment section for the Marvel film was filled with negative reviews before it opened.  Some were most likely in response to comments star Brie Larson ...
  • Agent Coulson Quiz – Clark Gregg – Actor, writer, director and the ‘Nicest Guy in Hollywood’
    With Captain Marvel taking us back to Agent Coulson’s younger days, I made this quiz, including questions about Clark Gregg’s mostly Avengers-oriented movie career, and trivia concerning his private life, in 10 fun multiple choice questions. Good luck! Hope you had as much fun taking this Clark Gregg quiz ...
  • Captain Marvel – Better Than I Expected – A White Male’s Review
    Guest article by Christopher Estrada I am no Marvel Cinematic Universe newbie. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all but one MCU film to date — that one being 2008’s The Incredible Hulk. We were thrown into the middle of Dr. Banner’s story with little in the way of actual origin story. Maybe Marvel ...
  • Movie Review – Captain Marvel – A Pretty Good Origin Story
    I’ve seen Captain Marvel twice now, and can honestly say I enjoyed it more the second time around. With my initial impressions I gave the movie a B. I’m bumping it up to a B+ now. As a big Marvel Cinematic Universe fan, I think the most useful rating is to ...
  • The Four Films You Need To Watch To Understand Captain Marvel (Speculation, Pre-Movie Release)
    Right, I know, Captain Marvel hasn’t come out yet — but I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest a few films you should watch to understand what the deal is with Carol Danvers, Captain Marvel, and the state of the MCU. If you’re not a rabid Marvel ...
  • Coming Soon – Peetimes for Captain Marvel
    Shanee Edwards, LA film critic who writes for SheKnows.com, has verified that she is going to the premiere of Captain Marvel. We’ll have Peetimes for Captain Marvel on Tuesday afternoon! Well ahead of its public release around the world. When you sing our praises, sing them loudly. 🙂 (Seriously, we’d love it ...
  • Black Panther – Does Killmonger Have a Point?
    For Black Panther Week, and before the 2019 Oscars, I’d like to give this gorgeous and exciting film a shoutout. Black Panther is up for no less than SEVEN Academy Awards, so beyond being yet another fantastic Marvel Universe superhero film, the tone ...
  • Zero Song – Video & Lyrics from Ralph Breaks the Internet
    Ralph Breaks the Internet, the lovable sequel to Wreck-It Ralph, plays almost like a Disney princess musical, which it kind of is, as an affectionate parody Disney surprisingly put forth in a very meta manner. (Disney having a sense of humor about themselves floored me in almost every way.) It’s pretty ...
  • All The Stars – End Credits Song from Black Panther – Video and Lyrics
    Up for Best Original Song at the Oscars this year, All The Stars from Black Panther is looking very good. It’s up against the big contender Shallow from A Star Is Born, but it could certainly bring in a win if the Academy sees fit to go in a different ...
  • Binge Watch Review – Russian Doll (A Netflix Groundhog Day themed series)
    Russian Doll is the latest show to hit Netflix, and it has a great theme crossing the line between Groundhog Day and Happy Death Day…(and the new Happy Death Day 2U), and what’s even better, this is an entire series and not just one episode (or movie) with a repeating groundhog ...
  • Movie Review – Alita: Battle Angel – Lighter, more Enjoyable than Ghost in the Shell
      Alita: Battle Angel is a sort of YA version of Ghost in the Shell, and I’m not exactly thrilled to see the same thing re-done in so short a period of time. At least this one was more enjoyable, with better humor, more likable characters, and a universe that might ...
  • Movie Review – Happy Death Day 2U – Still Fun, but more Sci-Fi than Horror
      It’s interesting to watch a sequel film that genre-hoppingly morphs from one thing to another. I’m not a horror fan, but genuinely loved Happy Death Day 1, probably because it had an emphasis on comedy, and the actual scares were light. It was creepy still, with the “uncanny valley” baby ...
  • Lego Movie 2 – Video and Lyrics to Everything’s Not Awesome
    I was surprised how pleasantly musical the second official Lego movie was, with at least three, and perhaps four, really cheerily/moodily stand-out hits. The original Lego Movie only had the one notable Everything is Awesome tune. It was such an earworm that WB execs clearly decided to build on that base ...
  • The Lego Movie 2 – Super Cool Song by Beck (video and lyrics from the end credit scene)
    One of the fun surprises about The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is how it became a full-blown musical ensemble, unlike in the three previous Lego films, which had only the one notable song (Everything is Awesome). In Lego 2, there was a moody reprise of Everything is (Not) ...
  • The Lego Movie 2 – Video and Lyrics to Not Evil (by Tiffany Haddish)
    In a Lego Movie sequel full of big musical earworm hits, Tiffany Haddish managed to pull the house down with her showstopper Not Evil, as Queen Whatevra Wa’nabi explains that while she’s a completely totalitarian Duplo Queen, she’s honestly just sweet and loving, and completely misunderstood. (Also, her name makes meta ...
  • The Lego Movie 2 – Video and Lyrics to Catchy Song (This is song is gonna get stuck inside your head)
    One thing the Lego movies do so well is serving up fun, fantasmic, and catchy super-chipper songs, guaranteed to take over your brain for days and nights without cease. Good for them, right? That’s a good viral marketing goal for Legos…but it’s a little hard on us, the viewer, trying ...
  • What is Animated versus Live Action in Alita – Battle Angel
    Alita: Battle Angel is one of my most-anticipated films of the year.  However, the trailers have been driving me crazy. My eyes can’t quite comprehend what they’re seeing.  What’s animated and what isn’t? Everything looks real and surreal at the same time, and two or three minute bursts of short ...
  • Movie Review – The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part
      What a charming, amusing, engaging, but ultimately fluffy bit of fun The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is. It’s right up there with the enjoyment level of the original Lego film and The Lego Batman Movie, although perhaps a little less sensibly told, narratively, than either. The story rambles all over ...
  • Lego Movie 2 Holiday Short – Christmas is Awesome
    I somehow missed this little video treat over the holidays, and maybe you did too. On the eve of The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, it’s worth taking a peek at this short Christmas one-off taking place in the apocalyptic ruins of Bricksburg and the Lego Movie crew (including ...

  • Chris Pratt and the Lego Cast go to Space Camp
    This adorable spoof of a reality show about which Lego actor gets to become a space-person is really cute/interesting/funny.  Something we at RunPee find continually amusing is how RunPee Dan used to work at Space Camp, and RunPee Jilly worked at Astro Camp, both in the days of our youth. ...
  • Lyrics and Video to Blitzkrieg Bop from Spider-Man – Homecoming
    Part of why Spidey’s Marvel Cinematic Universe showing in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War is better than any previous Spider-Man attempts lies in the fresh charm of Tom Holland, and the lively writing of Marvel’s producers and staff. Homecoming captured the rebooted hero the same way that only Mark ...
  • Russian Doll is the newest Netflix Addition to the Groundhog Day Loop Theme – and it looks GREAT
      RunPeep Shani pointed out that Russian Doll, a new Netflix show, has a Groundhog Day theme. From the trailers it looks like a funny cross between Happy Death Day  (sequel coming Feb 14 this year), and the original Murray’s Groundhog Classic. I’m in! We think Shani Olgive will do a binge ...
  • Movie Review – How to Train Your Dragon 3 – The Hidden World – No Spoilers (A newbie’s initial review)
      This stunning third Dragon movie needs to be seen if you like the series, or even if you’re new to the series but ‘grown-up’ enough to long for dragons to bind with and fly with in your own right. In other words, you don’t even need an excuse to drag ...
