Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2

Avengers: Endgame

Captain Marvel

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Apr 13, 2019 at 6:57pm PDT Captain Marvel is cool and all, but Samuel L. Jackson carried the film for me. Young Nick Fury was the glue that held the film together, no offense to Captain Marvel intended. I was not […]

Justice League

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jul 20, 2018 at 6:34pm PDT Did they really start off the film with that horrible CGI of Superman’s face? Raise your hand if you thought Superman was going to stay dead…If any of you have your hands raised, then I assure you, Spider-Man, Black Panther and Starlord […]

Thor: Ragnarok

We originally saw Ragnarok months and months ago, while it was still in the theater. It was a hilarious and amazing film, so I don’t know why it took me so long to put together a review. Maybe it’s the gushing – I feel uncomfortable gushing – it’s so much more fun writing about a […]

Slither

Not what I expected from the writer of Tromeo and Juliet. It wasn’t that the film wasn’t gross enough – it was plenty gross. No small amount of money was spent on gross-out alien special effects – there was enough festering, oozing slime for 3 movies. I guess I was expecting something more “TROMA-y” and […]

Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey

Synopsis: Our two heroes are destined for greatness – someday they will be remembered as the creators of modern civilization. A supervillain from the future creates evil robot versions of our heroes and sends them back in time to change the future. The robots kill our heroes, destroy their homes and attempt to rape and […]

Star Wars: Episode III – The Revenge of the Sith

How does George Lucas expect me to watch this movie with a straight face, when he includes lines like, “Hold me like you did by the lake on Naboo.”? Seriously, I was almost rolling around on the theater floor laughing after that horrid, horrid line. Who talks like that? Did his involvement with Howard the […]

Bloodsuckers

The Sci Fi Channel strikes again…with another cheesy B movie so bad it’s almost good. Note that I said almost. Yes, this time around, the Sci Fi premiere of the week is just plain bad. Jarringly bad. When I use the phrase “jarringly bad,” I am referring to the strange sensation of watching a movie […]

Coneheads

Although I didn’t see Coneheads when it first came out, I remember it well. Or rather, I remember how hard Subway whored itself out for the Coneheads movie. Consume mass quantities, indeed. Surprisingly, Coneheads is one of the better films spun off from an SNL skit. It’s not The Blues Brothers or Wayne’s World, but […]
