The Lost Boys

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Apr 19, 2019 at 8:14pm PDT Would you believe I practically had to threaten my crotchgoblins to sit down on the couch with me and watch The Lost Boys? For the boy, I wanted him to see the greasy sax man. […]

Totally Awesome

VH1 finally ran of material for their I Love the 80s series, so they threw up their hands in defeat and made a movie instead. The most 80s thing about this ‘teen’ movie is the fact that there are no teens in it. The youngest one is 23 – how authentic. Tracy Morgan is damn […]

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure – still excellent after all these years. After my thorough disgust with the sequel, I had to sit down and watch the original to verify whether I am just getting old and crusty or it really did suck. I was relieved when I still enjoyed Excellent Adventure – that means […]

Say Anything…

How did I make it out of the 80s without seeing Say Anything…? You’d think I grew up in a box or something. There are a lot of important movies I just haven’t seen. As you can probably tell, I’m making a valiant attempt to catch up. Say Anything… occupies a revered place in pop […]

I Know What You Did Last Summer

So…the obvious question – Scream vs. I Know What You Did Last Summer. Again, I’m coming to the party late. Having seen Scream shortly after it was released on video, I have an automatic bias towards Scream. Scream netted 2 sequels, while I Know What You Did Last Summer netted only one – and it […]

Student Bodies

Before Scary Movie, there was Student Bodies. I certainly don’t mean to imply that Student Bodies invented the horror spoof – or even perfected it…both honors that belong to Mel Brooks. But it definitely holds a special place in my heart – because it’s just SO FUCKING GOOFY. The rubber chicken? The horsehead bookends? The […]

Napoleon Dynamite

It seems that the nonstop commercials for the DVD release have finally died down. I swear, it seemed like every channel played that commercial during every commercial break for the last month. Anyway, after several weeks of the commercial blitz, my husband asked me where they found a guy that stupid to follow around with […]

Not Another Teen Movie

I was not drunk or high the night I went to Blockbuster and bought Dude, Where’s My Car?, Zoolander and Not Another Teen Movie on DVD. Really, truly, I wasn’t. I was curious about this one when it came out in the theater, but I held myself back. I sometimes have burning desires to see […]

The Rage: Carrie 2

LAME. 90 minutes of lame-ass shit was not worth the 10 minutes of cool shit in this film. Harpoon through the crotch was cool. Fireplace poker through 2 heads, in one shot, was cool. The chick from American Beauty nose diving into a car was cool. Being shot with a flare gun was almost cool. […]

Cruel Intentions

How this film got a PG-13 is beyond me. [Oops, I checked and see it was Rated R – my Bad!] Mindless trash entertainment…but entertainment nonetheless. I was made to watch this crap late at night with Debra and April, feasting on Tom Thumb sushi and cheap beer. I didn’t pay to rent it, so […]
