We live in such uncertain times, I don't know if it's the political rancor or too many superhero movies being made which has made me feel psychically sick and physically out of shape.

Punks, bikers, hippies, beatniks, goths, ravers, drunks, druggies, homos, and the surfer. All iconic, but more often conjurer up a variety of stereotypes.
But what I really want to write about is Matthew McConaughey for a moment. Surfer, Dude was before True Detective, during those Failure to Launch middling years when he was hanging out with Lance Armstrong. I like to remember him always the way I originally met him. But this man is some where who lives and loves living as a surfer, a cannabis smoker, a naked bongo player and an actor. So this part might just be his Jeff Spicoli. And as some of this is to watch, we just needed to have this one to get to the amazing stuff McConaughey would do later.
Come at me bro,,,so long as you got weed!
Seventeen years later and the world we live in needs a Super Troopers sequel so we may make it through another news cycle of nonsense & potential war. The pairing of this release on Four Twenty is the cannabis infused salve I will smear all over my body and slide around on the hood of somebody's car in the parking lot of the multiplex before I go see this. Mind where you park and a happy stoner's holiday to all, including you, Mr. President. I see you recently got something right for us.
Punk will never ever die, just like the black market for drugs, babies & counterfeit designer purses, but unlike our hero Anton Yelchin. Sorry, spoiler alert! He doesn't die in this very violent movie, just in real life.
OK, bummer. Let's try this again.
For those of you who can remember some sort of hardcore punk scene, this gets the look, music & grimy scene pretty spot on. I long for my days of hanging out at The Anthrax in high school. (I was terrified the first few times I went.) But the real payday of this film is seeing Captain Picard being scary as fuck. He pays the patriarch to a band of Nazi skinheads who love a good thrill kill as much as they do Hitler. For the record, his birthday happens to be on April 20th. History has a excellent sense of humor.
So be sure to smoke a bowl in advanced of putting this on and engage!
