Pet Sematary

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Sep 2, 2018 at 1:08pm PDT Lily had been begging to see this freaky ass movie for weeks. It’s Sunday afternoon, gross and rainy – so why not? Pet Sematary was the very first Stephen King book I ever read – the summer between 6th and 7th grade. […]

It (2017)

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Aug 17, 2018 at 6:14pm PDT My procrastination in watching the new It was twofold. First off, It is my favorite Stephen King book and Tim Curry’s Pennywise holds a special place in my heart as the scariest movie villain EVER. If I am scrolling through the guide […]

The Silence of the Lambs

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jul 24, 2018 at 12:49pm PDT I am now entering the third phase of my children’s film education. Phase 1 was the off-the-wall kid stuff, like the 60s Batman and Howard the Duck. Phase 2 was the slightly more PG-13 and adultish stuff – everything from Army of […]

The Parent Trap (1961)

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jun 17, 2018 at 7:32pm PDT I normally don’t watch BYUTV, but when they’re playing The Parent Trap, then why not? I didn’t intend to drag the whole family into it, I was just trying to be annoying…but they all got sucked into it. These children of mine […]

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

Several months ago, I caught Lily watching this movie. I snatched the remote QUICK. I’d forgotten about it until I was chillin’ with my friend Rachel. She lured me in with the promise of a glorious merkin…and y’all know how I feel about merkins. A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jan 29, 2018 at […]

Cell

I feel like the world needs a John Cusack/Samuel L. Jackson buddy/road trip movie right now. Now, more than ever, we need the joy that those two can bring us. (“I want these motherfucking snakes out of my motherfucking earnest romantic comedy!” or something to that effect?) A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jan […]

Hannibal Rising

The only thing more gag inducing than sitting down to watch a movie that you know includes cannibalism is seeing ‘The Weinstein Company’ as the first slide in the opening credits. That being said, Hannibal Rising is somewhat of a boring slog, although I don’t know if I would be felt the same way if […]

Divergent

So, “Teen Dystopia” is its own genre now? Back when I was a teen, I was quite sure that “the man” was out to get me…by stamping out all free thought, individuality and creativity. Turns out, it was just my mom. I kid, I kid – she likely wasn’t any worse than any other mother […]

The Wizard of Oz (3D)

Never before have I written a second review of a film. Not so much out of pride or any kind of belief that my reviews exist as the “final word” on the worth of a film…it’s more because I’m kind of lazy. (Or quite possibly…really fucking lazy.) The 3D re-release of The Wizard of Oz […]

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

I’m torn by this movie. Don’t get me wrong, I liked it…but I don’t know that it absolutely HAD to be made. Let me be clear, I don’t remember much shit from reading The Hobbit. I remember Gollum and I remember big fucking spiders. I do remember that half the dwarves die, so I am […]
