Happy Marijuana Legalization Day, Canada! What better way to celebrate than watching the trailer for POT-ential cult classic cannabis comedy The Beach Bum, brought to you by absurdist indie filmmaker Harmony Korine (Spring Breakers).

De Niro goes full perv in his latest comic misfire Dirty Grandpa... and nobody's laughing.
Neighbors (Nick Stoller, 2014) – If nothing else, you’ve gotta give Seth Rogen credit for acknowledging his age. Sure, in his latest movie he plays a stoner with a heart of gold who feuds with frat kids, but at least this time he’s playing a thirty-something stoner with a heart of gold feuding with frat kids.

At Any Price is a gloomy parable that speaks to the woes of life in small town America. Director and co-writer Ramin Bahrani’s delivers a picturesque rendering of golden-glimmering wheat fields and comforts of country living. Yet, there is a general air of melancholy that floats through this film in which stories of lust, teenage angst and midlife crisis become implausibly intermittent.
Fleetingly campy and sleazy at the opening and closing, The Paperboy is ultimately too boring during the middle hour of the film to leave any sort of lasting impression outside of the film's most bizarre moments.
