The Batman

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) Why was this film so damned loooong? It was a smidgen under three hours, and shorter than Endgame…but it felt like three damn days. If it felt that long on my couch, I cannot imagine how long it felt in the theater. […]

The Frighteners

I love introducing the kids to my favorite directors. The Frighteners is a horror film by one of my favorite directors – Peter Jackson. What’s […]

Friday the 13th Part 2

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Nov 23, 2018 at 6:55pm PST So my DVR is doing this weird thing, where shows disappear and reappear at random. I had recorded this for the us to watch on the last Friday the 13th, but it had disappeared. Lily […]

Victor Crowley

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Oct 14, 2018 at 5:40pm PDT My husband records the weirdest movies. At first I thought it was a typical slasher movie, but then it went all meta, a survivor writing about a massacre ten years ago and then a group […]

The Silence of the Lambs

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jul 24, 2018 at 12:49pm PDT I am now entering the third phase of my children’s film education. Phase 1 was the off-the-wall kid stuff, like the 60s Batman and Howard the Duck. Phase 2 was the slightly more PG-13 and adultish stuff – everything from Army of […]

Split

I haven’t watched an M. Night film since…Signs – holy shit, that was 16 years ago! But my son watched Split and said it was pretty good, so I decided to give it a spin. A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Feb 19, 2018 at 3:20pm PST Split was amazing from beginning to end. […]

Texas Killing Fields

Based on a True Story…I LOVE “Based on a True Story.” I love bullshit and nothing is more bullshit than “Based on a True Story.” (Technically, the film opened with “this story is inspired by true events” – but that’s pretty much the same thing.) Being a local, I’m more than a little familiar with […]

Texas Frightmare Massacre

How does Parrish Randall know what dog vagina tastes like? I guess there are just some questions that I’ll never know the answer to…although, I bet I could ask my 3 year old, because she won’t stop letting the dog lick her open mouth, no matter how much I scream at her. I guess I […]

Grindhouse

It took almost a year, but I finally got around to watching the other half of Grindhouse…Death Proof. I’d watched Planet Terror almost a year ago, during my maternity leave movie marathon, but I had never gotten around to Death Proof until now. I’ll start off with Planet Terror. Rose McGowan stars as Cherry Darling, […]

Hot Fuzz

Edgar Wright does for Policemen what Edgar Wright did for zombies. Simon Pegg does a complete 180 from his role in Shaun of the Dead in Hot Fuzz as Nick Angel. He’s a lean, mean law-enforcing machine. In fact, he’s such a good cop that he makes the rest of the department look bad – […]
