  • Every Disney Princess Movie Obsessed with Mommy Problems (and 3 films that don’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 ...
  • Tenet and Mulan to Hit Theaters in July 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 ...
  • Jean-Luc Picard Writes a Quarantine Starlog – A playful Star Trek ‘episode’ for troubled times The newest Star Trek television show, called simply Picard, is not immune to the effects of the world (galaxy?) spanning quarantine.  Star Trek: Picard showrunner, writer, and director Akiva Goldsman playfully imagines what Trek would be like in the wake of social distancing and isolation. Here’s our favorite ex-captain, ex-ambassador Jean-Luc ...
  • New Hunger Games Prequel Movie Announced A new Hunger Games movie? Yes, please! The new movie title is The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, and it’s a prequel. Author Suzanne Collins is writing the novel right now, which should be published by May 19th. Of course the movie rights are already picked up by Lionsgate, according to ...
  • Top Astronaut Movies to Rewatch Right Now Here at RunPee we lean heavily into covering science fiction movies, since we’re huge geeks. You’ve probably noticed. 😉 We especially love movies about scientists and space. There are many wonderful space movies featuring astronauts as heroes…which, of course in real life they are. Think of the training and deprivations these ...
  • Forget life for a while and watch all 9 episodes of Star Wars… AT ONCE Thank you Internet, for once again delivering something new and distracting for us. Watch this YouTube video of a nine screen split of Star Wars episodes I – IX. It’s crazy! UPDATE: Well, you actually can’t watch this now. Disney managed to find it overnight and yanked it, stating copyright concerns. ...
  • How I Came To Love Guardians Of The Galaxy There are certain films that hook you from the very first time you see the poster, let alone the trailer, and there are those that you really struggle to see why they bothered. For me that spectrum ran from “Leon” (BIG fan of Luc Besson) down to “Dangerous Liaisons,” which ...
  • Comic Con 2020 is Cancelled For the first time in 51 years, world premier event San Diego Comic Con is cancelled, due to the Viral Apocalypse. Last year I attended the 50th anniversary of the SD Comic Con, and things were in high swing. Just like it was when I attended the year before, and the ...
  • A Gift of Gunn: The Complete Awesome Mix is now Available The Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix volumes are now complete! James Gunn’s entire list of Meredith Quill’s favorite songs are on a playlist everyone can listen to. It’s Gunn’s personal quarantine gift to the world.

  • Get paid $1k to watch Harry Potter in one binge session Sounds too good to be true — sit back during your enforced at-home quarantine and earn $1000 watching Harry Potter? Accio money! You might have even just completed a Harry Potter rewatch on your own, but you’re trapped at home anyway by virtue of the CoVid-19 viral pandemic, and this is ...
  • 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. ...
