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

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.)

The Wizard of Oz (3D)

Posted by knobbygirl

Never before have I written a second review of a film. Not so much out of pride or any kind of belief that my reviews exist as the "final word" on the worth of a film...it's more because I'm kind of lazy. (Or quite possibly...really fucking lazy.) The 3D re-release of The Wizard of Oz deserves a second review...not only because my original review was written 15 years ago, but because it truly is like watching a completely new film.

Ghost Shark

Posted by knobbygirl

When a Ghost Shark eats you, where do you go?

I don't mean metaphysically, as in what happens when you die. I mean literally - where do the parts of you that the Ghost Shark swallowed go? Are they instantaneously dissolved by Ghost Shark's ectoplasm? Or are they digested more slowly, like a regular shark would? These are the type of questions that keep me awake at night.

Blast Vegas

Poor Frankie Muniz...it's come to this.

Has anyone else noticed that the cute child stars that are able to play kids well into young adulthood, appear to skip young adulthood? One day, they don't look a day over 15...then overnight...BAM...45 years old. Think of Edward Furlong, who is already playing "dad" roles. That's what happened to Frankie Muniz. On the bright side, at least he didn't "Corey Haim" and go straight from cute teen to middle aged lesbian.
