You can chalk it up to its equally dense source novel of the same name, written by Thomas Pynchon, or you can attribute that to its director, Paul Thomas Anderson, a man who seems to get a kick out of filling your brain with more than you can process at once.

movie-stoners-lead -Tara Aquino

Thanks to Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Inherent Vice, Doc Sportello (Joaquin Phoenix) will go down as one of the greatest movie stoners of all time. Based on Thomas Pynchon‘s protagonist in the novel of the same name, Phoenix’s Sportello is a hippie private eye who likes to toke up while pondering the world and solving the mystery of his missing ex-girlfriend. He’s also pleasant proof that stoners aren’t just a collection of nonsense and wasted days. Read more…

By Christopher Rosa 

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hits theaters  this weekend, and we couldn’t be more excited to see one of our favorite franchises get the larger-than-life reboot it deserves. Seeing Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello reunite has us thinking about their celebrity doppelgangers. In other words, stars that look like turtles. Duh.

They’re hot, they’re hard, and they run on iOS 5 or higher. Yes ladies and gentlemen, we’re talking about robots!

Joaquin Phoenix

This is so weird, guys. After that whole I’m Still Here “documentary” and even The Master, we were really used to not liking Joaquin Phoenix.

Just to prove my point, I screencapped almost all the times he smiles in this preview (there were some smiling and running shots I may have missed, sorry, JP).
