What We Do in the Shadows

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Feb 23, 2019 at 1:57pm PST Ever curious, I’d been wondering where Taika Waititi came from – like what did he do before Thor: Ragnarok? A quick google pointed me towards his vampire mockumentary with Jemaine Clement, What We Do in […]

Deadpool 2

Grease 2

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Sep 15, 2018 at 7:51pm PDT I think my daughter hates me. I was watching Grease and Grease 2 came on afterwards and she made me watch it, too. Somehow, I had managed to avoid it for the last 42 years. […]

The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time
