What makes a B grade movie rank at RunPee (using the Rock as an example)
We’ve discussed movie reviews in the A range at RunPee before, but what about those Bs? To be clear, we consider a B movie as good to very good. But then what do we look for in a B film? B+ movies A B+ movie grade is for very good films. We dicker and dither […]
Who played Alan Parrish in Jumanji?
Robin Williams played the older version of Alan Parrish, the boy who had been stuck in the game for 26 years. Adam Hann-Byrd played the young version of Alan Parrish.
