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

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Aug 28, 2018 at 6:21pm PDT I don’t care what they call that damn movie, I really doubt it’s the last one. (Are you sensing a certain cynicality in me, when it comes to franchises? You’re goddamn right you are!) As the last film ended, everyone on the […]

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 […]

Avengers: Infinity War

Ten years and eighteen movies. The success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a long shot, but they did it, somehow those magnificent bastards did it. They created a film universe filled with amazing characters in amazing films. Sure, there were missteps like Incredible Hulk and The Dark World – but there were far more […]

Ghostbusters (2016)

I really truly wanted to love the Ghostbusters reboot. I would have even settled for liking it…but though there were truly funny moments, the film as a whole left me cold. A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Apr 3, 2018 at 6:28pm PDT The biggest element that annoyed me was the sexual harassment gag […]

Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies

There has been nothing on my TV but the Winter Olympics for the last 2 weeks…so why not just go with it and watch a movie full of Snowboarders? I’m talking Mountain Dew, baby! A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Feb 20, 2018 at 4:37pm PST Obviously, I was drawn in by the title […]

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 […]

Cooties

One bad chicken nugget, that’s all it takes. A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Feb 6, 2018 at 8:40am PST More than a silly horror/comedy, I feel that Cooties functions as an allegory of those “only eats chicken nuggets” kids. I fucking hate those kids. No, scratch that – I hate the parents of […]

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 […]

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

I know it’s a risk, but I’m risking my kids aspiring to truancy by introducing them to Ferris Bueller. It’s a risk I’m willing to take… A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jan 28, 2018 at 4:36pm PST As a parent, I know I’m supposed to sympathize with the parents and Rooney…but nope, still […]
