[Movie Review] UNHINGED

If this were a normal, non-pandemic summer, UNHINGED would’ve been exactly the type of B-movie I’d relish seeing at a theater on a hot afternoon – popcorn, maybe a hot dog and a soda in hand, in the company of strangers as ever-so-momentarily carefree as I. So it feels super weird to have watched this strange and scruffy Russell Crowe B-thriller from home on a screener, days before it’s supposed to be the movie that “reopens theaters” in the U.S. All this is to say, be careful out there

[Movie Review] WRESTLEMASSACRE

I tend to be a sucker for slashers with “massacre” in the title. From The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (contender for greatest horror movie ever made) to 80s camp classics like The Slumber Party Massacre and Sorority House Massacre and modern ultra-low-budget oddities like Pool Party Massacre. There’s just something about the simple pleasures of the whole ***** Massacre phenomenon that really does it for me. So I jumped at the chance to review WRESTLEMASSACRE

TITANS OF THE TUBE :: The Best TV Shows this Year

I’m a movie guy, and I probably always will be. No more than a few years ago, the thought of making a Top 10 list for TV wouldn’t have even occurred to me. But it’s 2019 and the age of peak television has changed my tune. And how could it not? The big-screen cinema experience has been all but overrun by one mammoth superhero franchise and the advent of streaming has turned television into an endless virtual hub of phenomenal shows — available anytime, anywhere.

[Blu-ray/DVD Review] ONCE UPON A TIME...IN HOLLYWOOD

ONCE UPON A TIME… IN HOLLYWOOD is finally available to watch at home. And though it had one of the great theater runs of the year, it feels right that the chillest cinematic hang of the summer is now marinating in people’s heads from their home screens. Quentin Tarantino’s 9th and possibly penultimate film — a dark fairy tale about the mythical human beings and competing energies that occupied Hollywood in 1969 — really demands repeat viewings to fully grasp the scope and magnitude of its insatiable gravitational pull.

PUT ON A HAPPY FACE :: The Best Joker Memes on the Internet

A movie can’t just be a movie in 2019. It needs a familiar angle, if not a direct relation to existing intellectual property. It needs a backstory of gossip, casting what-if’s, and production updates that can be mined for clickbait well before and after its release. And if a movie plans on surviving in the minds of the mainstream past the hours of its initial press cycle, it needs the Internet to meme the shit out of it. Director Todd Phillips’s standalone version of Joker, a pseudo-Scorsesean

Why Do Stoners Love Horror?

Do you like to smoke weed and watch horror movies? You're not alone. As it turns out, there are plenty of stoners out there who have a love for the art of fear and all things spooky. At least, this is the impression you'll get around the Weedmaps offices. When the subject of horror movies comes up, there's always someone around to perk up and join the conversation, and the Weedmaps staff gets real amped once spooky season kicks into high gear. Of course, not every stoner is a horror fan, and n

Why Vitamin E Acetate and Other Additives are Causing Concerns about Vaping Cannabis

After more than a thousand respiratory illnesses throughout the United States were linked to nicotine and cannabis vaping products, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has launched an investigation into the cause of the issue. The investigation has centered on additives in vape cartridges and additives in vape cartridges, and focusing in particular on vitamin E acetate, a thickening agent used in street-market THC cartridges made by unknown manufacturers. As of Oct. 3, 2019, t

Thanks to Weed, Every Cool Movie in the '90s was a Stoner Movie

In the '90s, weed became cool again. And so did the movies. As the 1980s gave way to the final decade of the 20th century, a generation that came of age under the thumb of Nixon's war on drugs and the Just Say No era of the Reagans became activists and advocates for cannabis. They also started making dope movies — creating a new pop culture canon and expanding the language of cinema, making major contributions to the rise of weed in mainstream American culture.

10 Highest THC Cannabis Strains You Should Know About

Every year, weed gets higher … in THC, that is. Throughout our shared history with the cannabis plant, we've slowly bred the plant to produce more of its primary intoxicating and psychoactive cannabinoid, with THC percentages of some plants now reaching the mid-30s. Though the cannabis plant contains myriad cannabinoids, with more than 100 cannabinoids identified in the plant to date, it's still tetrahydrocannabinol that reigns supreme in both the public consciousness and the plant we've bred e

CBD and Your Endocannabinoid System, Explained

Cannabidiol (CBD) may be the second-most-prominent compound of the cannabis plant, but these days, it's certainly the most talked about among the general population. Though slightly less dominant and historically less sought after than its high-inducing counterpart, THC, CBD has become a major trend not just in the cannabis industry, but also in health and wellness, food, and even cosmetic products. Budding mainstream interest in CBD, combined with mounting evidence detailing its therapeutic ben
