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.
What a movie! My long awaited excitement was finally satisfied! This was an event of epic proportions.
Picture it: I walk into the theater, and it is sold out. The crowd was rowdy and ready for Michael. People were chanting, “Michael, Michael!” It was awesome. The lights went down and the theater became deathly quiet.
From the moment the movie started my eyes were glued to the screen. I had extremely high hopes they were going to not only scare me, but toss in some amusing throw-back innuendos. They did! There were four separate times the entire audience cheered and clapped — it’s times like those that a movie screams, “We’re killing it!”
This franchise has stood the test of time; we’re talking forty years, folks. That is an amazing achievement in my book. Jamie Lee Curtis has done it again. Let’s just think about this: forty years ago Laurie took on Michael as a young woman, only to come back and kill him as a grandmother four decades later.
Go see this movie. I want to see some records broke and huge profits made. They said this was the last one, but I think we’re all in for a surprise. Pay close attention to the final scene.
About The Peetimes: I put 2 Peetimes in for you. They will both work well, but I do recommend the 1st one, since it’s mainly dialog. The 2nd Peetime has a lot more action in it.
There are extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Halloween. (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.
