Non-Christmas Christmas Movies – Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

It seems odd, looking back on Kiss Kiss Bang Bang from this side of the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — that it was touch and go whether or not Robert Downey Jr would get the lead role of Harry Lockhart. At the time, RDJ was considered to be quite toxic Robert […]

Christmas Movie Rewatch – Nativity!

Ah, Nativity! My wife doesn’t watch a lot of films but she watched and enjoyed this one. She does work in a primary school so there may have been some resonance for her there. I thought I’d give it a look because of the fine array of talent connected to it and, I thought, it […]

It’s A Wonderful Christmas – How RunPee Rob takes in the holiday season

We’re primarily a film based site and, sure enough, most of the articles here are related to films; new films, old favourites, comparisons of remakes, looking back and reappraising, and general opinion pieces. But the other week I wrote something that wasn’t about any particular film. Rather, it was about what goes on inside my […]

RunPee’s Big Annual Christmas Movie Review List

Each year at RunPee we get a little closer to reviewing all the Christmas films — at least, all of the good and/or notorious ones that popular culture appreciates. One year I tried to take on some Hallmark Christmas movies and found I couldn’t quite go that far down the sickly sweet rabbithole, but that […]

Christmas Rewatch Review – Lethal Weapon

What better way to start a Christmas film than with a half naked, drugged up prostitute pitching headfirst off the balcony of a tower block? If that doesn’t say festive fun and frolics, well, I don’t know what does! After all… Jingle Bell Rock is playing on the sound track. Throw into the mix a […]

First Time Movie Review – Jingle All The Way

Jingle All The Way is, most definitely, a Christmas film. I know that’s obvious but, with all the “is it or isn’t it” arguments and articles doing the rounds, I thought I’d better make sure everyone’s aware that I’m aware what I’m talking about… for a change! So what’s it about? In short, it’s about Howard […]

Christmas Rewatch Review – The Polar Express

I wonder if Tom Hanks is held in the high regard that he should be over that side of the pond? Over here actors like Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, and Helen Mirren are regarded as national treasures, and there is a genuine feeling of warmth that you get when you hear their voices. This thought […]

Classic Movie Rewatch Review – Die Hard

Die Hard is, without doubt, a cracking action film. A Christmas film though? Well, it has a weary traveller, a pregnant woman, gifts, and celebrates the value of family and the spirit of friendship. Add to those the soundtrack, the fact it takes place at an office party (a real one, mind, one with a jerk […]

Rewatch Review – Last Christmas

A lot of films take their titles from pop songs. They tend to then follow one of three paths. 1, There is nothing to do with the song in the film other than, perhaps, a play of the song part way through, e.g. American Pie, Whiplash, Stand By Me. 2, The song is a pointer to […]

Deck the Halls (2006)

Rewatch Review – Deck The Halls

Deck The Halls joins the pantheon of films that I seem to be the only person who likes them: Cats, Gemini Man, Ghostbusters (2016), Godzilla (1998), Alien Resurrection, Planet Of The Apes (2001), Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace… I enjoyed them all! OK… Phantom Menace was a bit of a disappointment. But Deck The Halls is almost universally […]
