Children of the Corn (1984)

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) Yes, yes…I KNOW they remade Children of the Corn several years ago…but WHY would I watch THAT when I can torture my kids with the original? The kids and I had a lively discussion as to whether Isaac or Malachi was creepier. […]

Midsommar

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) Of all the casualties of COVID-19, one of the most painful losses has been my desire to write…at the very moment I’ve been watching more films than any point in at least the past decade, I lost all desire to write about […]

Red State

I finally watched a good horror movie! One that wasn’t on SyFy! Aren’t you proud of me? As big of a Kevin Smith fan as I am, I can’t believe that it took me so long to get around to watching it. That leaves me with just Jersey Girl (not likely) and Cop Out (which […]

Camp Hell

WARNING – teenagers dry humping in the forest can summon demons. That’s right…those poor teenagers didn’t even get to have sex. They barely got to second base and things went to shit. What the pastor (Bruce Davison sure is busy these days!) in the film calls “demonic oppression” seems to be the symptoms of being […]

Black Death

As far as movies featuring giant underarm pustules go, this one is pretty good. I canโ€™t recommend watching while eating lunch, or anywhere near your next planned meal. Nor would I say go out and rent this one for your next romantic evening. However, if youโ€™re in the mood for some good ole hack-n-slash bathed […]

The Golden Compass

You’d think I would be standing in line to see a movie that supposedly promotes atheism in children and is condemned by the Catholic Church. The problem with the Golden Compass is that it tries so hard to not piss anyone off and be a family film that it totally misses the point of the […]

Constantine

Ted’s Bogus Journey, Part Deux. When the world needs saving – who else are you gonna call, but Keanu Reeves? I’ve lost count of all the different ways that he’s saved the world, but in Constantine, he saves the world from the son of Satan. At least that’s what I think happened – I kept […]

Bruce Almighty

Oh, Jim Carrey, why do you vex me so? Jim Carrey still irritates me. Oh, there was a time when Jim Carrey was alright by me: Once Bitten, Earth Girls are Easy, In Living Color. I was even okay with Ace Ventura and The Mask. But soon after that, he went from being Jim Carrey […]

Signs

God and aliens do not mix. They don’t. If God exists as Christians perceive him, the existence of aliens is impossible within that paradigm. The creation of any other non-earthbound creature is not even hinted at in the bible, except for of course, angels – and I doubt anyone would make the case for angels […]

Dogma

Do you wanna know the best part of the film? The best part was found at the very end of the credits…”Jay and Silent Bob will return in Clerks 2: Hardly Clerkin’.” Now that is something to get excited about! Dogma was exactly what I expected. Not better, not worse but exactly, on the nose […]
