Sharknado 2 : The Second One

Posted by knobbygirl

I watched Sharknado 2 several weeks ago and as excited as I was to sit down and watch it - after watching it, it was hard to muster enough excitement to write about it. All of the joy has been sucked out of writing about crappy SyFy movies now that they have become a mainstream pop culture phenomenon. If Matt Lauer and Al Roker get to kill sharks in your movie, it's fucking mainstream as shit.

Blood Lake: Attack of the Killer Lampreys

Posted by knobbygirl

A horror movie about bloodsucking fish...starring Shannen Doherty and Christopher Lloyd...made by The Asylum...on Animal Planet?

I know - I'm confused, too. Since when does Animal Planet show movies? Oh yeah...I forgot about Mermaids: The Body Found. Plus, they run a Puppy Super Bowl...it's not like we're talking about a bastion of hard-hitting journalism.

Ragin Cajun Redneck Gators

Posted by knobbygirl

In the world of SyFy Movies, it is often the title alone that sells a film. Not only does the title have to be catchy or alliterative, but it also must tell the viewer what the film is about. How disappointing would it be if Sharknado wasn't about a tornado full of sharks? No worries with Ragin Cajun Redneck Gators - these gators are all three.

The Lego Movie

Posted by knobbygirl

Everything is awesome!

Actually...the only thing about The Lego Movie that's not awesome is the song, "Everything is Awesome" - because that song has been stuck in my head for weeks on end. It's the only thing I hear. Maybe I shouldn't have switched my ringtone from "What Does the Fox Say?" to "Everything is Awesome"? Maybe it's my own fucking fault?

Viva Las Vegas

Posted by knobbygirl

What better way to prepare my kids for their first Las Vegas vacation than forcing them to watch Viva Las Vegas?Actually, Fear and Loathing or The Hangover would be a better way, but I can't in good conscience have an eight and five year old watch either of those films...or can I? Hmmmmm...

I don't think I've ever actually seen Viva Las Vegas before...I knew it would be cheesy, but I wasn't prepared for Velveeta Nagasaki level of total cheese meltdown.

Texas Killing Fields

Posted by knobbygirl

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.)
