Superbad

Posted by knobbygirl

"It's filthy, but it's no Pink Flamingos."

That was my response when Sean told me that it was the filthiest movie he had ever seen - I had to remind him that back in 1997, I dragged him to go see the 25th anniversary re-release of Pink Flamingos. He then amended his statement to say that Superbad was the filthiest movie he has seen, outside of John Waters and Gregg Araki...I would tend to agree with him - Superbad is a filthy, filthy movie.

The Avengers

Posted by knobbygirl

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 finish the film - The Avengers still lived up to the hype.

Rubber

Posted by knobbygirl

We didn't intend to watch this movie. I was scrolling through the guide one Saturday night, looking for something to watch and I paused on Rubber long enough to read the description. (Killer tire? Seriously?) The picture-in-picture indeed showed a tire rolling through the desert, so I clicked over, curiosity killed the cat...

Piranhaconda

Posted by knobbygirl

Piranhaconda may be one of the best portmanteau names for a man-eating creature (the best are Sharktopus, of course, and maybe Mansquito), but it sure as hell is NOT one of the best movies about a man-eating creature.

This movie was soooooooo boring. Michael Madsen is usually an un-boring actor, but his portrayal of a Professor hunting the elusive Hawaiian Piranhaconda was a snorefest. I gave zero fucks about WHY he was hunting for Piranhaconda eggs.

Get Him to the Greek

Posted by knobbygirl

Why does Russell Brand have a career again?

Seriously, I don't get it - he's not all that funny. And when he is funny, it's so far over the line, that he's guilted into apologizing for it later. (His Jonas Brothers jokes, for example...) He should take a page from Ricky Gervais and Sacha Baron Cohen and not apologize for shit.

Gnomeo & Juliet

Posted by knobbygirl

You may not know this, but my backyard is full of garden gnomes. The pink flamingos are packed away in the garage, as the evil HOA guidelines specifically prohibits plastic lawn ornaments. But there's also a gargoyle on the birdbath and a three foot tall lady statue. Needless to say, if all the statues in my backyard came to life at night, I would shit my pants.

Thor

Posted by knobbygirl

If I had been a boy, my parents would have named me Thor. True story.

I once dressed as Thor for Halloween. Sexy Thor. 1995. Last year, I dressed as Flavor Flav, but I had to buy a new Viking hat, because my old one was hidden in my hoarder piles of shit. True story.

Jersey Shore Shark Attack

Posted by knobbygirl

Who hasn't fantasized about the entire cast of The Jersey Shore being eaten by sharks? I know I have. I have never seen a single episode of The Jersey Shore - I watch the Soup, so I get the highlights. Except for the Kardashians, I can't think of a more deserving group of douchebags to be eaten by sharks. Not that I want innocent killer sharks to be infected with whatever variety of sexually transmitted diseases that are rampant among residents of The Shore, but surely the world would be a better place without all that fist-pumping and Ed Hardy?

Grandma's Boy

Posted by knobbygirl

The good thing about having friends - besides getting into shenanigans - is forcing them to watch movies you love. So after forcing Amy to watch Carrie (They're all gonna laugh at you!), she forced me to watch Grandma's Boy. She'd been after me for probably a year to see it, even lent me the DVD, but I never got around to watching it. (I did, however, get around to watching the Shorty Mac DVD. My response to that horrorshow was a text message that said, "Fuck you.")
