Got me angry all over again, another well-made McKay film. Does a great job, I think, of exposing the insanity and emptiness of the whole affair: money for nothing.

It the seminal "stoner comedy", but I found it not incredibly funny throughout: it has it's moments sprinkled throughout, but the premise is just a total farce, and I never believed one second any of this was real (if that matters, lol). That ending scene, with Cheech in a tutu, however, just might have been the film's saving grace, because it was awesome.

The story meanders far more than was reasonable, and I didn't "get" Pine's character at all (he's a boxing, wine-drinking, jealous hippy...okkaaaayyy). I saw the film for Rickman, and he played a fun character: it's too bad he wasn't on the screen the whole film. Shoutout to Bill Pullman, as well, for the best work in the film as a banking partner turned vineyard owner. I don't know why Dennis Farina is here, but I really enjoyed seeing the detective's banter with Professor Snape :-P

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

It's the film everyone was waiting to see...and it was great :-) I will confess, the film didn't hold my attention all the time, but this is certainly a return to the glory of the original trilogy. I only wish we could have had more screen time for Luke: I feel like the audience had to wait too long to finally see him. Reviews likely don't matter much for Star Wars: you either enjoy these types of films or not, just go see it!
