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 […]

Getting Schooled

The Breakfast Club meets Apocalypse Now – how’s that for a fucking amazing tagline? The people who brought us The Haunted Trailer were back at Frightmare with another locally made horror film. I was tentatively afraid that Getting Schooled would be a rehash of Haunted Trailer, but it was totally different in tone and content. […]

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

I didn’t realize how out of touch I am with the film world until thus weekend. I thought that this was opening weekend for Night at the Museum 3, but turns out it actually opened before Xmas. Doh! We were at LaLa’s in East Texas, celebrating Xmas a little late and decided to take the […]

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

When Anchorman 2 was announced, before all the hype, the special appearances and Dodge commercials, I badly wanted to see it in the theater. Then I (and probably the rest of the country) got kind of sick of seeing Ron Burgundy. And then I forgot about Anchorman 2 until the DVD came out… Anchorman 2 […]
