How movies earn an A Grade at RunPee
We consider an A, any A, from – to +, to be the best a movie in its genre has to offer. And while we sometimes — especially in long-running franchises — grade on a curve, we believe an A movie fulfills our expectations of a feature film of its type. So while all movies […]

11 Raunchy Comedies You Should Watch Now
The extremely R-rated Good Boys is helping close out the summer movie season this week. I’ve been looking forward to Good Boys for months, ever since the trailer dropped. They had me at Jacob Tremblay. What could be more wickedly subversive than casting the sweet little boy from Room and Wonder in a teen sex comedy? If you’re […]
Newbie Movie Review – Suicide Squad (2016)
Surprise, Surprise. Justice League is Actually a Good DC Flick Movie Truism: Maybe going into a movie with low expectations makes it better. I didn’t bother to see DC’s highly anticipated 2016 Suicide Squad in the theaters because it was so lowly-regarded among critics and viewers alike. So I just let it slip by. Cut […]
Virgin Movie Review – Godzilla (2014) – Not as bad as the last one
Did this movie do Godzilla right? Yes, better than the previous Godzilla. How’s that for a ringing endorsement? (It isn’t.)

Black Panther is up for no less than SEVEN Academy Awards, so beyond being yet another fantastic Marvel Universe superhero film, the tone struck a cord with […]
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 know. For instance: in […]
10 Ways Ant Man Could Escape the Quantum Realm
Spoilers for Infinity War, and of course Ant Man & the Wasp…don’t bother reading if you haven’t seen those two movies. This will all be gibberish to you anyway if you’re not up to date. Onward… So, that ending in Ant Man 2. It’s nice that Scott Lang finally has a superhero partner, and an […]
