Spider-Man: No Way Home

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) It. Was. Perfect. Okay, maybe not perfect…but perfect for me and what I wanted to see. No Way Home on Xmas Day was my first time back in the theater since the pandemic began. Literally, the last film we went and saw […]

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 […]

Santa Jaws

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Dec 27, 2019 at 3:42pm PST What in the shit? Rest assured, Santa Jaws is exactly as bad as I thought it would be. I had zero expectations going in, expecting some mindless, season-appropriate entertainment on Christmas night and this film […]

Iron Man 3

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jul 5, 2018 at 8:21pm PDT I’ve somehow managed to avoid seeing Iron Man 3 in the five years or so since it was released. No particular reason, except maybe the fear of too much GOOP. Even so, I’m hearing rumblings that there are some plot threads from […]

Alvin and the Chipmunks

Ooh ee ooh ah ah, ting tang, walla walla bing bang. That is the exact point that I stopped being okay with this film – the remake of my favorite Chipmunk song ever. Do juvenile chipmunks *really* need skanky back-up dancers? I thought that was what The Chipettes were for? Coincidentally, The Chipettes will be […]

Puppet Master vs. Demonic Toys

I honestly don’t know who’s worse – Corey Feldman or Vanessa Angel. Don’t get me wrong – they both suck. A lot. I would be hard pressed to say who would win more in a sucking contest. On the one hand, there’s Corey Feldman. Anyone who saw him in the first season of The Surreal […]


So I finally saw Elf…and I hate to say it, but I was very disappointed. It wasn’t nearly as good as I thought it would be. It’s not like I’m trying to compare Elf to the raunchier Holiday films like Bad Santa or The Hebrew Hammer. It’s not that I’m against family films – there […]

Bad Santa

Billy Bob Thornton IS a bad Santa. Really bad. I’ve never cared much for Billy Bob Thornton. I’ve never seem him in a particularly likable role. His personal life is deplorable. Plus, he just looks like he smells like a Truck Stop Bathroom. That being said, I liked him in this role. I could really […]
