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. […]

Pet Sematary II

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 […]

Lake Placid: Legacy

I told you so. The Final Chapter is never, EVER, the final chapter. There’s always another chapter. And sometimes, even another chapter after that! The film starts in Las Vegas, with some kind of break-in, but not to steal something. They were hanging a banner. Whooooooa, what a bunch of badasses. I think they are […]

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 […]

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jul 13, 2018 at 9:06pm PDT Well, it’s official…the Jurassic Park movies have gone full Sharknado. (No spoilers, but once you see the film, you’ll get what I mean.) There was plenty of action and there were plenty of dinosaurs, but the plot clicked together so predictably that […]

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 […]
