Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) We are most definitely those chumps that waited for Shang-Chi to hit Disney+ instead of going to the theater…Disney+ has made 2021 so much more bearable… It was a fun film! The action was non-stop and it was really fun to watch […]

Black Widow

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) Black Widow achieved an almost impossible task – this movie made me actually care what happened to a character I didn’t give a shit about before. I didn’t hate Black Widow (or ScarJo) in previous MCU entries, I didn’t feel anything at […]

Army of the Dead

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) I never thought – as a parent – that I’d have to warn my children of the dangers of “road head” over dinner, but here we are in 2021 and Zack Snyder just made me have that conversation! Sure, there are plotholes […]

Wonder Woman 1984

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) It wasn’t THAT bad…but yeah, it was definitely not a good movie, per se…or even a mediocre one, because its failures were spectacular in scope…dammit, okay, I’m dancing around it. Wonder Woman 1984 was bad. Bad is purely subjective when it comes to the DCEU…it […]

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Feb 15, 2020 at 4:49pm PST Gary Oldman just makes every film better, doesn’t he? I mean, Bram Stoker’s Dracula notwithstanding, he is AMAZING. Is it totally out of line to say that I think Sirius Black is sexy? I think […]

Dead Ant

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Feb 9, 2020 at 5:52pm PST Never pee on an ant on sacred Native American lands after taking cursed peyote. I mean, that’s just common sense, right? Well, apparently, the members of 80s Glam Rock Band Sonic Grave do not have […]

Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jul 8, 2019 at 6:33pm PDT I’ve done it! I’ve watched all of the Infinity Saga films…Well, technically, Far from Home was the last one that I watched, but whatever… My husband took the kids to go see it in the […]

Spider-Man: Far from Home

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jul 30, 2019 at 1:04pm PDT Just a few weeks after opening, we lucked into a private showing one morning last week…matinee prices, too. Going to the Movie Theater is GREAT without all the people! I wasn’t feeling patient, so I […]

Ant-Man and the Wasp

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jun 28, 2019 at 1:08pm PDT Thanks to my kids’ Netflix account, we all finally got to watch Ant-Man and the Wasp. You heard me right – my kids mutinied and set up their own Netflix account for the summer. (I […]

Avengers: Endgame

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on May 14, 2019 at 7:45am PDT I don’t even know how to write a review about Endgame that doesn’t contain at least 50 spoilers, so instead…you’ll get feelings and emotions. I know, I know – not like me at all. We […]
