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 […]

It (2017)

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Aug 17, 2018 at 6:14pm PDT My procrastination in watching the new It was twofold. First off, It is my favorite Stephen King book and Tim Curry’s Pennywise holds a special place in my heart as the scariest movie villain EVER. If I am scrolling through the guide […]

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 […]

The Mummy (2017)

A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jul 1, 2018 at 4:55pm PDT I’ve never tried so hard to NOT watch a movie. I played games on my phone, ate cinnamon toast, took a dump…yet I still ended up watching too much of this abysmal film. They thought they were starting a Universal Monsters extended […]

Attack of the Killer Donuts

Sometimes, my husband leaves me presents on the DVR…presents like Attack of the Killer Donuts. He’s a romantic at heart… A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on May 2, 2018 at 5:32pm PDT The title kind of gives away the plot – there are donuts and they kill people. It’s absolutely as much fun as […]

Friday the 13th

There’s nothing like introducing your children to a cinema classic…yes, this Friday the 13th, I’ve started the kids on Friday the 13th… A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Apr 13, 2018 at 4:59pm PDT I haven’t decided for sure, but there’s a slim chance that they might go to some kind of camp this […]

Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies

There has been nothing on my TV but the Winter Olympics for the last 2 weeks…so why not just go with it and watch a movie full of Snowboarders? I’m talking Mountain Dew, baby! A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Feb 20, 2018 at 4:37pm PST Obviously, I was drawn in by the title […]

Cooties

One bad chicken nugget, that’s all it takes. A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Feb 6, 2018 at 8:40am PST More than a silly horror/comedy, I feel that Cooties functions as an allegory of those “only eats chicken nuggets” kids. I fucking hate those kids. No, scratch that – I hate the parents of […]

Cell

I feel like the world needs a John Cusack/Samuel L. Jackson buddy/road trip movie right now. Now, more than ever, we need the joy that those two can bring us. (“I want these motherfucking snakes out of my motherfucking earnest romantic comedy!” or something to that effect?) A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Jan […]

Cult of Chucky

Poor Andy. It’s really hard to get laid when your childhood was ruined by a killer doll. A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Dec 8, 2017 at 6:35pm PST Kudos to Chucky (?) For bringing back the original Andy! There’s a bit of meta-power to bringing back the originals…although I would’ve loved a scene […]
