|87 T9||The Avengers (2012) - Apr 23, 2017
"After just four years and five films later "The Avengers" have finally assembled, and to fairly loud applause from fans and critics alike. All our favorite superheroes fighting together side-by-side, eventually, in like the last 30 minutes. But seriously Joss Whedon managed to do a pretty fantastic job introducing the team to each other, hilariously interweaving characters and their universes into one grand popcorn comic book summer blockbuster. "
|72 T3||Cheech and Chong's Nice Dreams (1981) - Apr 21, 2017
"The stoner duo are back, and up to their usual mischief. New found millionaires from their success peddling dope, the duo continue to stumble themselves from scene to scene accidentally avoiding the bumbling police. Unfortunately the jokes throughout are fairly hit-and-miss with the film hitting occasional lulls, but the duo bring enough of their patented charm to keep the movie enjoyable for fans. "
|78 T5||Cheech & Chong's Next Movie (1980) - Apr 21, 2017
"The perfectly titled "Cheech and Chong's Next Movie"(1980) was a great follow-up for fans of the stoner icons film debut, and with the loose flowing nature of their movies all the different jokes and scenarios blur together in haze of hilarity. "
|20 T1||Reefer Madness (1936) - Apr 20, 2017
"Boring exploitation anti-maihuana propaganda movie. The film serves as an interesting time capsule of the early war on drugs more so than an old time so-bad-its-good movie. Has a few laughs hidden in the terrible if you can sit through the rest. "
|91 T9||Dazed and Confused (1993) - Apr 20, 2017
"This nostalgia crack period piece is one of the greatest soundtracks ever, and also features one of the best teen movies ever too. This fantastic slice of life film is full of memorable lines and moments performed by an overall amazing ensemble cast. Written and directed by Richard Linklater the movie is a cultural touchstone of coming of age films. "
|80 T6||Cheech and Chong's Up in Smoke (1978) - Apr 20, 2017
"The big screen debut of the now iconic comedy duo "Cheech and Chong" is the original stoner movie. Although the film feels more like a disjointed series of events rather than a cohesive story that's okay man. Instead the film is driven largely by the duos chemistry playing out like a loosely connected remix of some of their best bits and a lot of improve to fill in the gaps. Don't freak out, spark up and mellow out, but be careful. This is some heavy duty shit."
|79 T6||Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) - Apr 20, 2017
"In Marvel's series of "Avengers"(2012) prequels this film is fittingly subtitled "The First Avenger" feeling like a feature-length preview. This average origin story of Marvel's version of "Superman", in the truth, justice, and the American-way vein feels a little more like the superhero icon in the cliche, boring, and generic sense in this film. Chris Evans is a decent Captain America and a fine Steve Rodgers despite the creepy uncanny valley effects. Overall an okay movie despite the wonky CGI"
|81 T6||Thor (2011) - Apr 20, 2017
""Marvel's The Avengers: Assemble" series continues with the surprisingly fun and engaging introduction of "Thor", as well as the biggest expansion of the "Marvel Cinematic Universe" seen yet. By literally exposing other worldly realms in the universe to the audience, fans can expect "God" like threats in future films if we now have "God" like heroes. Chris Hemsworth is heavenly as "Thor" making it no wonder why Natalie Portman is in awe and nonstop eye-fucking him throughout the film. "
|78 T5||Iron Man 2 (2010) - Apr 19, 2017
"This follow-up to the surprise success of Marvel's first "Iron Man"(2008) was an entertaining return to the life of "Tony Stark". What was potentially a very interesting story about the post-"Iron Man"-world, and what that means for society and an increasingly mortal "Tony Stark" unfortunately turned into a poorly edited "Avengers" prequel. Although not without its' flaws the films does a fair job setting up the character "Tony Stark" as well as "S.H.I.E.L.D" for future films in the "MCU". "
|74 T3||The Incredible Hulk (2008) - Apr 18, 2017
"Marvel's attempt to reboot the character of the "Hulk" inside the new "Marvel Cinematic Universe" in building up to "Marvel's Avengers"(2012) was merely adequate. While the film washed the taste of Ang Lee's "Hulk"(2003) out of audiences' mouths, it failed to do anything memorable beyond the traditional "Hulk Smash" action. Edward Norton is an okay Bruce Banner and Tim Roth plays a decent bad guy, but the rest of the characters are all pretty flat with the Liv Tyler love story being the worst. "
