Princess of Mars

Posted by knobbygirl

I doubt that this is the first time that Traci Lords has sprayed someone with her piss on film.

It was a cheap shot, I'm sorry Traci. After reading her autobiography, I actually kind of like her...although that's not the main reason I subjected myself to watching her drool over Antonio Sabato Jr. while dressed as Princess Leia (sans cinnamon buns) in Princess of Mars. I wanted to be the one drooling over Antonio Sabato Jr.

Sharktopus

Posted by knobbygirl

Sharktopus fucking tried to eat me!

Sharktopus is not picky.

Sharktopus will eat sharks, old boat painters, bungee jumpers, surfer dudes, Volkswagens...Sharktopus is nasty! Sharktopus just doesn't give a fuck.

Sharktopus escapes from a Navy funded super-secret genetic lab in Long Beach. Sharktopus wants a fucking vacation, so Sharktopus heads to Puerto Vallarta. Crazy, nasty ass Sharktopus wants some Mexican food.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Posted by knobbygirl

Meh.

I guess I'm just not dorky enough to "get" The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I "get" British comedy, I don't think that's the problem. I like The Office, Monty Python and Ab Fab. I even laugh at Benny Hill. I think that I must have a fundamental issue with British Sci Fi. I cannot stand Dr. Who and Red Dwarf just bores me to tears. It's all so pretentious - don't get me wrong, ALL Sci Fi is pretentious on some level, but British Sci Fi is like adding insult to injury. They insist on making everything so...cute. Dolphins...cute. Mice...cute. Towels...cute.

Man with the Screaming Brain

Posted by knobbygirl

Bruce Campbell tried, bless his little heart.

This film is all Bruce - he wrote it, he directed it, he starred in it. And this is the Bruciest Bruce movie that I've ever seen. It takes full advantage of his aptitude for physical humor. He even gets to fight himself, ala Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness. Yes, the plot is asinine. SO? It still made me laugh. I dare anyone NOT to laugh at Bruce Campbell riding around on a tiny pink Vespa.

Play-Mate of the Apes

Posted by knobbygirl

Get your damn paws off me, you damn dirty dyke!

That's what I would have said if I was in this movie. Very disappointing for late night Skinemax - well, I would have been disappointed if I could stop laughing.

The Matrix Reloaded

Posted by knobbygirl

Wow.

Usually, my first paragraph is much more clever than that, but I am a bit at a loss for words right now. Needless to say, I was more than adequately impressed by The Matrix Reloaded, as was most of the country this past weekend.

Star Trek: Nemesis

Posted by knobbygirl

It's December 18, 2002. The Two Towers opened today. I just happened to have the day off work, so what better way to spend the day...than seeing the new Star Trek movie???

Seriously, we intended to go see Star Trek today - we've been planning on it for a week or so. Not that we don't want to see more Hobbit adventures, but the lines...no way, jose! Besides, I think we may want to catch a night viewing at the IMAX....
