Pineapple Express
(2008)

Lazy court-process clerk and 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.

Trifecta doesn't actually mean anything related to the special T-shaped joint or the smoke inhaled. It means "a bet which is won by correctly selecting in the correct order the first three finishers in a race." - lol i knew that we have them bets in england :P
I didn't care for it...I guess I prefer my weed movies without brutal violence.

Maybe in better hands, it might have worked though.

Ben Hur
(2016)

A Jewish nobleman, Judah Ben-Hur, and his adopted Roman brother Messala are best friends despite their different origins. Messala enlists in the Roman army and fights in the Roman Empire's wars in Germany. Ben-Hur also develops feelings for the family slave Esther although their different station in life compels him not to pursue her. But when her father Simonides seeks to marry her off to a Roman, Ben-Hur declares his love for her and takes her as his wife. Three years later, Messala returns as a decorated Roman officer. His return coincides with a rising insurrection by the Zealots, Jews who are opposed to the oppressive nature of Roman rule.

Pledge
(2019)

Three friends get the chance to live the college dream when they're invited to join an elite fraternity-but first they'll have to survive the hazing from hell. Freshman social misfits Ethan (Phillip Andre Botello), David (Zack Weiner), and Justin (Zachery Byrd) are desperate to improve their terminally uncool reputations by pledging one of their university's prestigious Greek houses. When every frat on campus turns them down, they are unexpectedly recruited by a shadowy social club offering them access to an exclusive world of raging parties, eligible coeds, and VIP social status. The catch? A sadistic initiation ritual that goes from depraved to deadly over the course of 48 booze- and blood-soaked hours. Spiked with twisted humor and gruesome shocks, Pledge asks: how far would you go to be popular?

Looks like a pretty average month overall, huh? so many 6s.
Wooley wrote: So, not very good, I shouldn't waste my time?
Probably shouldn't. It's like a Rube Goldberg machine where it goes through a lot of effort throughout but ends up with a shitty, simplistic ending that shows all the interesting stuff was for nothing. A really, really, really shitty ending. A movie-killing ending. Every good part of the movie was ruined by that lazy ass ending for me. You'd think a guy who made such a huge fuss over the sexist responses over Ghostbusters would write good, complex female characters for this, but nope. The blond lady starts like that but the whole movie is spent flattening her character until nothing remains of what made her interesting and Kendrick's character isn't worth mentioning at all.

When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen's companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfill her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.

Tank Girl (Rebecca) and her friends are the only remaining citizens living in the wasteland that is Earth, where all the remaining water is controlled by Water and Power, the mega corporation/government that runs the territory. While incarcerated at W + P, Tank Girl and her new friend Jet Girl break out and steal... a tank and a jet. After meeting some mutant kangaroo/humans, and rescuing her little girl (adopted by her friends), the kangaroos and the girls kick Water and Powers' butt.

The Girl in the Spider's Web
(2018)

In Stockholm, Sweden, vigilante hacker Lisbeth Salander is hired by computer programmer Frans Balder to retrieve Firefall, a program capable of accessing the world's nuclear codes that he developed for the National Security Agency, as Balder believes it is too dangerous to exist. Lisbeth successfully retrieves Firefall from the NSA's servers, attracting the attention of agent Edwin Needham, but is unable to unlock it, and the program is later stolen from her by mercenaries led by Jan Holtser, who also attempt to kill Lisbeth. When she doesn't attend their scheduled rendezvous, Balder mistakenly believes Lisbeth decided to keep Firefall for herself and contacts Gabrielle Grane, the deputy director of the Swedish Security Service (Säpo), who moves Balder and his young son August to a safe-house. Meanwhile, Needham tracks the unauthorized login to Stockholm and arrives to seek Lisbeth and Firefall.

Tank Girl is too genial to dislike much, but I find its aesthetic too hideously '90s for it to actually work for me.

Tank Girl
(1995)

A young woman finds her reputation is at stake when she refuses to date a charming bully in this intelligent teen drama from Australia. Xandrie is a smart, pretty girl who is attending an exclusive private school favored by wealthy, upper-class families. Xandrie is infatuated with Darren, a handsome but quiet boy with an interest in computers, but Darren's step-brother Zack, who is at the top of the school status ladder, has his eye on her. Zach is used to getting what he wants, often with the help of his loyal sidekicks Brook and Jonathan, and when Xandrie rejects his advances, he doesn't take it well. Soon Xandrie finds herself the target of a campaign of rumors and vicious gossip, largely spread through online social networking, and the war of words takes an especially ugly turn that could leave Xandrie scarred for life and turn Darren against Zack.

A foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Freddie defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound. They reach unparalleled success, but in an unexpected turn Freddie, surrounded by darker influences, shuns Queen in pursuit of his solo career. Having suffered greatly without the collaboration of Queen, Freddie manages to reunite with his bandmates just in time for Live Aid. While bravely facing a recent AIDS diagnosis, Freddie leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. Queen cements a legacy that continues to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day.

I think your description is just a wee bit off. :P

Didn't care for this one; Petty's character was just too much an acquired taste. It has energy to spare, but other than McDowell, can't think of a real reason to watch it again.

And what about Bohemian Rhapsody did you and DaMU disagree about?
