  • Run Lola Run – A Rewind Review for a Rewind Loop Film
    Even though I’ve only seen this movie one other time, it’s one of my favorites.  There’s plenty to love about Lola.  The premise is simple: Lola has twenty minutes to raise the money to save her boyfriend Manni’s life.  Each failed attempt causes the clock to reset Groundhog Day-style.  Except ...

  • James McAvoy Quiz – One Huge Personality…or is it Many Different Personalities?
      James McAvoy is today’s hottest star. Let’s pay tribute to him by taking this short quiz. I’ll give you the plot — you give me the movie. Thanks for stopping by and taking my quiz. Here’s a great idea…share it with the person closest to you.  Unless you’re on a ...
  • Quotes Quiz – Movies with Groundhogs Day Themes
    A Groundhog Day Movie repeats the same day over and over (and over) until the main character gets it “right.” Basically the person trapped in the time loop needs to use science/magic (or something never actually explained) to ‘level up’ to the next day, and continue their lives. Seen any good ...
  • Movie Review – The Kid Who Would Be King is Charming and Sweet
      This character driven movie was about a half hour too long, and that’s the only negative thing I have to say about The Boy Who Would Be King. I enjoyed this movie a lot. It has all the ingredients needed to keep the audience of children entertained: out of control roots, ...
  • Rewatch Review – Mary Poppins – The Original & Classic Film
    As we approach the Oscar season, I decided to rewatch the original Mary Poppins (MP). I’m certainly torn as to which one is better, considering that Mary Poppins Returns is not a remake; it’s a continuation of the Banks family drama. I love Julia Andrews and Emily Blunt as Mary ...
  • A Brief Preview Review of The Kid Who Would Be King (No Spoilers)
    This movie has all the necessary ingredients to make it a success with kids and adults alike. It is exciting, funny, and has an entertaining storyline. It has several great morals, including the importance of loyalty and committing/following through with tasks. Old friendships are built upon, and unlikely new friendships ...
  • Edge of Tomorrow – Lyrics and Video to Love Me Again – A Kickin’ Action GroundHog Day Themed Movie
    Live. Die. Repeat. A lot of people know Edge of Tomorrow only by the above tagline, and they’re not far wrong: this Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt adventure slash sci-fi slash action flick ticks every box of awesomeness anyone could want for an evening of movie fun. It doesn’t hurt that ...
  • Quiz – King Arthur and his Legend
    King Arthur – the man, the myth, the king of Britain. Who doesn’t like a quiz about wizards, castles, magical swords, knights, ladies, kings, and queens? I’ve kept the questions at a middle school level, but no matter your grade, jump right in and enjoy this 10-question quiz! Hope ...
  • RunPee and the 2019 Oscars – Predictions for the 2018 Movie Awards
    The 2019 Oscar nominees will be announced on Tuesday, January 22.  It has been a wild awards season full of uncertainty, surprises, upsets, and scandal.  The nominations from the 2018 movies may bring their own share of upsets and surprises. Here are my predictions for what Tuesday morning will bring. ...
  • Movie Review – Glass
    Glass is one of those movies the fans love and the rest of the world does not. My theater was packed with die-hard Shyamalan fans. There were laughs, and applause throughout the movie. I polled a few fans as they were leaving and it was unanimous; they loved it. And ...
  • Theme Song from Flash Gordon – Queen Video & Lyrics
    FLASH! Ah-ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh… Okay, you probably know this strange little song, even if you’re too young to have ever seen Flash Gordon on the big screen. (I’m actually too young to remember if I did or not, but this isn’t the point.) The point is that Queen was so versatile they could create ...
  • Everything is Awesome – Video and Lyrics to The Lego Movie Theme Song
    Last Thursday, while I waited in my theater for “The Dog Movie” to start, I was thrilled to catch two cool trailers: one for a fresh new Men In Black sequel (with Chris Hemsworth!), and the newest Lego film, called, appropriately enough, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. It also ...
  • 5 Differences between the Old and New Mary Poppins
    The new Mary Poppins movie is out. (And now it’s streaming on Netflix!) Disney’s magical, musical nanny has returned to theaters after 54 years, five Oscars, a run on Broadway, and a Tony award. While the new movie keeps several staples of the original (the titular nanny, singing and dancing, ...
  • Quiz – Sir Patrick Stewart in the Movies
    Patrick Stewart has dominated the sci-fi genre for decades and there’s still more to come from this genius. How much do you know about his film career? I’ll describe the plot; you guess the movie.  I thoroughly enjoyed making this quiz for the fans of Mr. Stewart. If you had ...
  • A Stomping Good Time at the Tournament – Video and Lyrics to We Will Rock You from A Knight’s Tale
    When Brian May told his group members in the Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody he wanted the audience to be the instrument for one of their rock songs, I realized just how brilliant the rest of the band was: it’s not all about the immortal Freddie Mercury. All these men had something ...
  • Why You Need to Care About Carol Danvers – Captain Marvel Facts and Film Updates
    Have you noticed the Captain Marvel trailers dropping for the upcoming March 8, 2019 film, set within the (admittedly large and dense) Marvel Cinematic Universe? There’s a lot of speculation on who exactly Ms. Marvel is, how she’s going to fit into the Avengers ongoing storyline, why the movie will ...
  • Don’t Stop Me Now – Video and Lyrics by Queen in Shaun of the Dead
    I have two favorite funny zombie films, and alongside the awesome Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead is a near perfect zom-rom-com. (It’s also a great satire about modern man and modern life.) One of the best scenes features the Winchester Pub Team attacking the bar-owner-turned-zombie with pool cues, synchronized to ...
  • Movie Review – Replicas
    There are two movies coming out this week about dogs. One is A Dog’s Way Home. The other is Replicas, which has no dogs in it, but it is a dog. Question: why does the saying, “This movie is a dog,” imply that a movie is bad, yet we also know this ...
  • Greet the Morning with Groot – Mr. Blue Sky Video and Lyrics
    One of the most memorable scenes in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the opening credits, as the adorable Baby Groot dances to ELO’s hit song “Mr. Blue Sky.” What makes this scene so engaging is Groot’s complete obliviousness to his team mates-slash-parents’ danger as they fight a seriously deranged ...
  • Waking up to Deadpool – Lyrics and Opening Scene from Angel of the Morning
    I’m not a morning person. That’s why I keep my Alexa unit close to the bed, so I can shake off the cobwebs by playing Juice Newtown’s Angel of the Morning. It’s a soft, gentle, sweet song that wonderfully belies the  gristly hilarious opening teaser for the the original film ...
  • Making Models – the Jenny Haniver Airship from Mortal Engines
      Mortal Engines has the best models and miniatures I’ve seen in a movie outside of the original Star Wars movies and the Lord of the Rings. This should come as no surprise, since Mortal Engines came from WETA Workshop, the same crew who designed The Lord of the Rings. Remember ...
  • The Voice Actors of Spider-Verse
    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has a great cast of voice actors. Here’s a breakdown of the actors, and movies where you might have seen them before. (Slighty spoilery; all links are to RunPee’s reviews) Peter Parker is voiced by Chris Pine. This is the first Spiderman we meet when the movie opens. Chris Pine ...
  • Is Bumblebee a prequel or a reboot?
    Prequel or reboot. Or, soft-reboot — whatever that is.  Just where does Bumblebee fit in the Transformers universe? Officially, Bumblebee is a prequel, set in 1987. But when you watch the movie you better wear your best retcon glasses, because there’s a lot that just can’t fit with the story we already ...
  • Movie Review – Mary Poppins Returns
    Can I start by saying bravo?! I’m a huge fan of Mary Poppins (MP), and Mary Poppins Returns (MPR) did not disappoint. While we all knew that filling Julie Andrews’ shoes as MP would be nearly impossible, Emily Blunt nailed the role.  I enjoyed this movie so much because of ...
