  • Movie Review – Jojo Rabbit Although I’m a fan of director Taika Waititi, the first trailer for Jojo Rabbit didn’t inspire much confidence.  The scene of an imaginary Hitler comforting a ten-year-old boy fell pretty flat.  Waititi isn’t the first person to mine World War II for laughs.  Charlie Chaplin, Mel Brooks, and the TV ...
  • Movie Review – Midway Sorry to say: this movie doesn’t live up to the true events it attempts to depict. Unless you feel you must see the battle events on the big screen, this movie is better suited to DVD/streaming…in 2 or 3 months when it’s available. To be sure, there’s plenty of explosions, bombs ...
  • A Buffy Revival – Vampires Spike and Angel Could Absolutely Do a Movie Note the following: David Boreanaz says he’s done playing Angel. Joss Whedon (creator, writer, editor, director, minor deity) has also said he’d make a Buffy movie if the heavens willed it so. We think David would return with the right offer. With Bones finished, isn’t he free now? And I don’t ...
  • Terminator TV Series: The Carlenator Ahoy there. Spoilers for Terminator: Dark Fate ahead! Terminator: Dark Fate isn’t blowing the doors off the box office. It opened with a slightly disappointing weekend of $29 million: $1 million below expectations. In fact, the past three Terminator movies (Salvation, Genisys, and Dark Fate) all failed to meet box office ...
  • Movie Review – Arctic Dogs I just saw a headline that questioned if a child under five should see Arctic Dogs, due to rude humor and lots of action. My question is; would children over five want to see this film? It’s not a boring movie by any means. I truly enjoyed it, but it ...
  • Movie Review – Harriet As many of you know, I am a fan of biopics. I said to myself, “Self, is Hollywood going to mess this story up?” But, surprisingly, they didn’t let me down. Harriet is a must-see for sure. Given that many people may not know the full story about Harriet Tubman, ...
  • Official Movie Review – Terminator: Dark Fate All things considered, I’d say Terminator: Dark Fate is a worthy successor to the 1991 Terminator 2. After 28 years, 3 other Terminator movies — plus a TV show — it’s hard to think of Dark Fate as the 3rd movie in a trilogy, but that’s where it belongs. Dark Fate ...
  • Ranking the Terminator Movies Well, cool, I just rewatched the entire run of Terminator movies and realized it will be easier to rank them in order of greatness than I thought. For each movie (I’ll get to the TV show later), the best to worst go in order of first to last created. That ...
  • Movie Review – Black and Blue This movie pokes at your value system quite a bit. Most of us are all too familiar with stories about dirty cops. This story is no different, but how it plays out onscreen is rather appealing because of Tyrese Gibson, Naomie Harris, Mike Colter, and of course, the city of ...
  • Movie Review by RunPee Rob – Terminator: Dark Fate I went into this film with mixed feelings. The original landed in the mid 80s with barely a ripple. A relatively small budget film by a new director, with not a well known cast. But it took off. The early 90s saw T2 launched with a lot of ballyhoo and fuss ...
  • In Defense of Terminator 3 Terminator: Dark Fate opens this week.  It’s the sixth movie in the Terminator franchise.  However, it is the official sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day…which basically invalidates Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, one of my favorite entries in the entire franchise. Billy Crystal once joked that Arnold Schwarzenegger signed on ...
  • Movie Review – Zombieland: Double Tap Zombieland: Double Tap wasn’t great, but it was better than I expected and certainly satisfying. I’m happy to say that Double Tap avoids the typical disappointment from sequels that were added on to a successful movie as a money grab. #ZL2 has the same charm and wit as the original. I’m ...
  • Movie Review – Gemini Man   Nothing amazing, nothing awful. This is a stylish little film where every actor gives it their all and makes a nice 2 hour action excursion. Here’s a Pro-Tip for audiences: wait for this to come out on streaming. While old and young Will Smith both look great ( I suspect they ...
  • Rules to Survive in ZombieLand Here are the rules presented on the big screen in 2009’s Zombieland, one of the two greatest Rom-Com-Zom movies ever made. (Just so you don’t have to guess, the other is Shaun of the Dead.) With Zombieland 2: Double Tap coming out, RunPee thought a refresher on zombie survival rules was in ...
  • Best Zombie Movies Ever Zombieland 2: Double Tap opens this week and I have a feeling I’m not the only one hungry for Twinkies.  It’s been ten years since the first Zombieland and if the sequel does well, they’re talking about making a third one in another ten years.  In case you need more ...
  • Movie Review – Joker   I have a feeling a lot of people will really like this Joker movie. Personally, I don’t understand how this film can even come close to the DCEU and their best films. It’s not funny at all, like EVER, and doesn’t involve any of the Justice League members. I have ...
  • Is Joker a standalone or part of the DC Extended Universe? The Joker (played by Joaquin Phoenix), is a standalone origin story, set in 1981 Gotham City, which tells the story of how the character Arthur Fleck , a failed stand-up comedian, turns to a life of crime and chaos. The Joker is the first in a series of movies and comics ...
  • The Essential Will Smith   Gemini Man opens October 11.  The name Will Smith has become synonymous with  sci-fi action films.  Smith has had a long and varied career, even if his genre roles are my favorite.  I’ve been a fan of his since I was a kid.  Somewhere I have a Soundtracks cassette of ...
  • Best Superhero Movies That Were Never Made Todd Philips’ controversial new film Joker opens this week.  It’s kind of amazing that a character piece with no connection to the DC Universe and no Batman in sight got the green light.  Many other movies aren’t so lucky.  Even movies with major talent attached to them.  Here’s a look ...
  • Movie Review – Rambo: Last Blood First off; if you’re a fan of all the other Rambo movies, you are going to love Last Blood. He does some major damage to the bad guys, and isn’t this why these movies have so much appeal? The violence in this film was so very graphic, that I did ...
  • X-Men Movies That Were Never Made   Dark Phoenix hits DVD and Blu-ray on September 17.  It’s the final adventure for this cast of characters.  And it’s the next-to-last X-Men film we’ll see for a while, assuming The New Mutants eventually gets released.  There have been a LOT of X-Men movies, ranging from fair to awesome.  And ...
  • Movie Review – Hustlers I’m giving this movie an A for sure. I loved it. Watching these women do their thing was so much fun that I forgot I was working. All of the sudden a little thought popped into my head like, “Hey, aren’t you supposed to be watching for Peetimes?” So yeah, what ...
  • Movie Review – The Matrix   After reading RunPee Dan’s amazing retrospective on “The Matrix After 20 Years“, I’m a little intimidated to try and pen my own review. He’s RunPee’s resident Matrix EXPERT. And I don’t say that lightly. Uber. Fan. I especially get nervous trying to do justice to classic A+ level films. But I ...
  • Movie Review – The Peanut Butter Falcon Absolutely: a fantastic movie. I am so happy to unreservedly award an A+ to Peanut Butter Falcon. I smiled the whole time. THIS is how to make a funny, heartwarming film that never overtly panders to maudlin sentimentality. The laughs are earned, and aren’t always PG. I haven’t enjoyed a dramatic ...
  • Movie Review – Angel Has Fallen I did the Peetimes and reviews for the previous two movies in this series. (And by the way, you don’t need to see or remember the other movies to appreciate this one. It stands on its own pretty well.) I checked the archives and I gave the first movie Olympus Has ...
