Justice League

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jul 20, 2018 at 6:34pm PDT Did they really start off the film with that horrible CGI of Superman’s face? Raise your hand if you thought Superman was going to stay dead…If any of you have your hands raised, then I assure you, Spider-Man, Black Panther and Starlord […]

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 […]

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 […]

Logan

Ugh, I don’t want to write this review at all. I’ve been putting it off and putting it off, but I can’t delay it any longer. I have to write a review of Logan, which means saying goodbye to Hugh Jackman as Logan. (That’s not a spoiler – Jackman has been very vocal.) I am […]

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 […]

Deadpool

My son has been wanting to watch this since it came out…the husband and I didn’t even end up seeing it in the theater (a travesty), but saw it as soon as it hit cable. I’d been trying to avoid having to explain to him what ‘pegging’ is…but he’s twelve. From what I’ve heard about […]

Wonder Woman

I wanted to hate Wonder Woman. Everyone has unanimously loved this movie, so that ugly little bit of 20-something year old, still deep down inside of ME wanted to find something to hate about this movie. To be contrary, to be different…I couldn’t do it. Wonder Woman is every bit as thrilling and enjoyable as […]

Suicide Squad

Since Suicide Squad debuted on HBO this past Saturday, so we had a family movie night and watched the whole thing while eating Marie Callender pot pies. Jealous? Now my daughter wants us to dress up as the Suicide Squad for Halloween…and she wants to be Enchantress. I’m only saying no because that would mean […]

X-Men: Apocalypse

While I agree with Jean Grey that the third one’s always the worst, X-Men: Apocalypse isn’t a bad movie. It merely suffers in that it wasn’t as good as the first two. (I think we can all agree that Last Stand was much stinkier than Apocalypse ever dreamt of being.) Sure, it was a bit […]

Batman v Superman: The Dawn of Justice

As the opening credits rolled, I couldn’t stop laughing. Maggie and Negan as Bruce Wayne’s parents was so stinking cute! My husband just rolled his eyes…he doesn’t watch The Walking Dead. I was a bit worried that not seeing Man of Steel would be a problem as I sat down to watch Batman v Superman, […]
