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 […]

Spider-Man: Homecoming

So this past summer vacation, we did the Washington, DC thing. Imagine our disappointment when we found that we couldn’t go up the Washington Monument – and now we know why. Thanks, Spidey – you really screwed the pooch for our family vacation. A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Feb 19, 2018 at 6:35pm […]

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, […]

Captain America: Civil War

We made it! A few weeks after opeing weekend, but we made it to the theater to see Civil War. I missed The Force Awakens and Deadpool, but I wasn’t about to miss Civil War. Before I jump in, let’s talk trailers. The most anticipated of the bunch was first – Doctor Strange. Even though […]

Ant-Man

It’s been like a zillion years since we’ve had a family movie night…I guess technically, it wasn’t really a family movie night, since Lily wanted nothing to do with Ant-Man, instead barricading herself under her bed with Netflix and my cat. I’m trying to remember when Paul Rudd first hit my consciousness…it wasn’t Clueless, because […]

Thor: The Dark World

I started writing this review last summer, when I originally watched Thor 2 on cable…my thoughts will be briefer, but possibly more favorable than when I originally watched it. This film was made for the ladies, right? A shirtless viking god, pining over the nerdy scientist girl, even though he has a hottie asskicker at […]

Avengers: Age of Ultron

So we started to watch Agents of SHIELD the other night and it took about 30 seconds to realize, “FUCK, this is happening after the movie.” So we stopped the DVR and watched Gotham instead… SO MANY PREVIEWS. Although there wasn’t a preview for Pitch Perfect 2, we were treated to a lady razor commercial […]

The Wolverine

Why was he in the fucking hole? The movie never fucking explained why he was in the fucking hole at Nagasaki. What the fucking fuck? Sorry for all the fucks, but stuff like that really bothers me. Of course, I could think of nothing else during the whole film, waiting for it to come up […]

The Avengers

Finally! I finally got to see The Avengers. It wasn’t how I wanted to see it – in 3D, but that hardly matters. Even under less than ideal circumstances – watching it on a six inch screen, while sitting on an airplane next to a sugared up four year old, ultimately taking 5 hours to […]
