THE STONER MOVIE OF THE WEEK!
Lazy stoner Dale Denton has only one reason to visit his equally lazy dealer Saul Silver: to purchase weed, specifically, a rare new strain called Pineapple Express. But when Dale becomes the only witness to a murder by a crooked cop and the city's most dangerous drug lord, he panics and dumps his roach of Pineapple Express at the scene. Dale now has another reason to visit Saul: to find out if the weed is so rare that it can be traced back to him. And it is. As Dale and Saul run for their lives, they quickly discover that they're not suffering from weed-fueled paranoia; incredibly, the bad guys really are hot on their trail and trying to figure out the fastest way to kill them both. All aboard the Pineapple Express. -© Sony Pictures

WILD CARD MOVIE OF THE WEEK
Last Stop For Paul
It's a tough call as to which is better: Last Stop for Paul, or the way Last Stop for Paul was made. The reviews and awards speak for themselves, but what you probably don't know is the story behind the story--which is nothing short of amazing. In the Spring of 2005, veteran Writer, Producer, Director Neil Mandt and Cinematographer Marc Carter set out on an around the world journey to film the story about two guys traveling to the famous Full Moon Party in Thailand. All they had was one camera, two wireless microphones, three batteries, and a rough story outline. They traveled without a crew, a cast or having scouted one location; all of this was to be done on the fly.
There weren't any casting calls along the way, just strangers picked up on the street to either act in a scene or hold the camera as Neil and Marc delivered their improvised lines. The outcome has proven to be a smart, funny and poignant story about world travel. The experience of making Last Stop For Paul was like none other in the history of Hollywood . No cast, no crew, no script, great result. See for yourself. -© Slowhand Film
