About the Movie:
In The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, Denzel Washington stars as New York City subway dispatcher Walter Garber, whose ordinary day is thrown into chaos by an audacious crime: the hijacking of a subway train. John Travolta stars as Ryder, the criminal mastermind who, as leader of a highly-armed gang of four, threatens to execute the train’s passengers unless a large ransom is paid within one hour. As the tension mounts beneath his feet, Garber employs his vast knowledge of the subway system in a battle to outwit Ryder and save the hostages. But there’s one riddle Garber can’t solve: even if the thieves get the money, how can they possibly escape?

FREE Movie Pass Giveaway: Pineapple Express – WINNER!

July 29, 2008

Congratulations goes to liane for being the lucky winner to my FREE Movie Pass Giveaway: Pineapple Express contest for her hilarious stoner story.

i never got stoned, but my friend did when she was in high school… she did it that one time and never again since. five years later, i’m pregnant at her house and dying for snack. and i find brownies she made. knowing she hasn’t done weed in YEARS, i still was ultra paranoid to eat them, more so because i was pregnant and didn’t want to have stoner baby. i spent 20 minutes trying to wake her up to find out if the brownies had weed in them. she thought i was crazy and ON WEED myself to even believe that she would make those kinds of brownies. i thought she was on weed b/c it took me 20 minutes to get a straight answer out of her. it got to a point where i was yelling, “is there weed in the brownies!!! i’m hungry for a snack but i don’t want to get high!!!” maybe that’s lame, but it was hilarious to me.

She joins JMAW and Miss Pris as the 3rd winner to these oh so exciting giveaways:

Please help me congratulate liane y’all!

Oooh, is tomorrow Where in Hawaii Wednesday awwwready? *grin*

About the Movie:
Lazy stoner Dale Denton (Seth Rogan) has only one reason to visit his equally lazy dealer Saul Silver (James Franco): 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 (Rosie Perez) and the city’s most dangerous drug lord (Gary Cole), 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.
