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 […]
