April 20th, 2013 7:36pm EDT
Willie Nelson
Every year when April 20 rolls around people across the U.S. celebrate an unofficial holiday: weed day.

Stoners everywhere recognize 4:20 as being the time of day to light up, and when the date is 4/20 it's time to kick back, light up and smoke all day -- especially at 4:20. If you're into that kind of thing, of course.

Now that several stats have legalized marijuana to various degrees plenty of folks from sea to shining sea will be lighting up this year, some even in public. Colorado, which has the loosest regulations on pot, sees thousands gather in downtown Denver -- aka the Mile High ...

Trailer Talk: This Week in Movies - 'Machete,' 'The American,' & More

September 3rd, 2010 9:10am EDT
American,_The
I apologize to my regular readers that this column is appearing much later than it normally does. This week I endured the hysteria many apartment dwellers suffer from around the beginning of September, known as moving. Now that I have my movies and the rest of my place unpacked though I’m ready to get back to business as usual.

I’m incredibly excited that this week Robert Rodriguez is finally bringing his “Grindhouse” creation “Machete” to theaters. It will be accompanied by George Clooney as a charming assassin in “The American,” the Justin Long/Drew Barrymore romantic comedy “Going...

'Machete' Will Solve The Immigration Debate

August 31st, 2010 10:30am EDT
Machete-Immigration-Debate
You know Machete is going to take out the bad guys. You can tell by the name, and the image of Danny Trejo wearing a trench coat full of machetes. You might not have known that he’s also going to solve the immigration debate.

“There are real issues going on in just about any movie that’s got fun elements to it,” writer/director Robert Rodriguez said. “This is just something that’s very current. It really polarizes people because it is a real issue. People want to see an answer. Our answer, in the movie, is Machete because it is such a huge problem, not that he’s even trying to solve it. It...

Cheech & Chong Show Off Their Medicinal Marijuana Cards

April 18th, 2010 11:00am EDT
Cheech & Chong
Cheech & Chong are back, and now they have medicinal marijuana cards. Their original films and stage shows were rebellious with pot humor in a “straight” world. Now Tommy Chong just takes his card out of his wallet to show the press he qualifies for medical weed.

“I’ve got my card,” Chong bragged. “Jack Herrera, he wrote The Emperor Wears No Clothes, the first marijuana book out. Him and I, when they changed the law the first time around here, there were no cards or anything so we designed our own card. It was a letter and then we had it shrunk into cards. So that’s the very first.”

The Best And Worst Of Martin Scorsese

February 17th, 2010 9:48am EST
Shutter Island
With Shutter Island about to open, cineasts are holding their collective breath wondering if the latest film from legendary director Martin Scorsese will add to his legacy or continue what some perceive as a decline from the Robert De Niro era to the Leonardo DiCaprio years. Take a look back at the best and worst of Scorsese's four-decades-plus career:

THE WORST

THE COLOR OF MONEY (1986)

Paul Newman and Tom Cruise star in this superfluous sequel to the 1961 pool hall classic, The Hustler. Cruise is in full-on cocky mode (whether that's good or bad is up to you), while Newman seems to...

Five Tremendous Quentin Tarantino Films

August 19th, 2009 11:00am EDT
Inglorious Basterds
This week we finally get to see one of the most highly anticipated movies of the summer: "Inglorious Basterds." Like all Quentin Tarantino aficionados, we've been eagerly awaiting the arrival of this World War II action epic since it was in development.

Tarantino's films have had a profound impact on those that have an appreciation for cinema. His use of excessive violence as a form of social commentary, his references to classic movies, and his nontraditional narrative structure has remarkably influenced modern moviemaking since he hit the scene in the early 1990s.

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: Lion Fight & Bear Attack

April 25th, 2008 11:16am EDT
Grey
It has been three months since Grey's Anatomy last aired (stupid writers' strike). This was one of the few times I wish ABC had aired a refresher on the season like they do after every two episodes of Lost because for the first five minutes of tonight's episode I was a bit...lost. Don't worry, like another hit ABC show, my memory came back as the episode wore on. Let's begin:

While it has been 12 weeks in real-life time, only half that time has passed for the doctors at Seattle Grace. The Mer/Der breakup was the straw that broke sanity's back, and Meredith is finally in therapy with Am...
