Hunter Killer is going gangbusters at the box office. Since everyone is excited about this movie, I should pay homage to the submarine genre by doing a quiz on The Hunt For Red October.
The Hunt For Red October is a timeless piece of cinema history. I’ve seen this movie a number of times, and one of the great pleasures of watching it is also listening to the soundtrack.
Hope you enjoyed the quiz!
RunPee Mom is our emotional bedrock. Without her, RunPee never would have lasted a decade as an app (which is since the dawn of time in internet years). She’s our biggest cheerleader and an unending source of unconditional love. She works cheerfully and tirelessly, seeing any movie we ask of her, writing interesting reviews, and being our…well…MOM. Her genres of choice: kiddie flicks, animated movies, emotional dramas, historical features, war films, diverse biographies, and even dense, diabolically plotted thrillers. She knows more about famous and infamous figures in history than said figures probably knew about themselves. She’s the Quiz Manager for the RunPee.com blog, and our resident movie celebrity/trivia expert. If you’ve taken a RunPee Quiz, you’ve most likely been given a virtual hug by RunPee Mom.
It’s movies like this that make me love my job. I went in expecting to be bored since this type of movie never appealed to me. After watching this one, I am going to take the weekend to watch Hunt For Red October and any other submarine movie I can find. My eyes were glued to the screen the entire time.
The action that happens is intense. The timing of what they need to accomplish is literally down to the wire. They have no room for error and it was awesome to see it come together.
Just watching how they navigate the submarine was enjoyable, and seriously stressful. The way they handle them, and the orders being given with a fraction of a second response needed. Phew, total intensity.
The acting was amazing. Gerard Butler is an intense guy already, now you throw him into this environment and he steps it up even more. My hats off to him. Impressive Mr. Butler, well played.
I would recommend this movie to anyone. There is something in it for every person out there. Really, I’m absolutely not trying to fluff this movie up; it does it all by itself. For a movie that is not my forte, it changed my mind and that is very hard to do. I am set in my ways and hate change. But this movie changed my mind from the get go and kept me entranced.
About The Peetimes: This movie is nonstop action and intrigue. Peetimes were extraordinarily hard to do. This is a movie where your eyes are glued to the screen from start to finish. The 3 times I chose will help, but be warned, this is a movie that never quits. No lulls at all.
There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Hunter Killer. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
