Pineapple Express: What You Should Know

For those who enjoy no brainer stoner comedy plots, you will definitely love Pineapple Express. The new movie Pineapple Express centers around the tale of 2 stoners – Dale and Saul. Dale (Seth Rogen), is a hardcore weed user who has a love interest here named Angie (played by the beautiful Amber Heard), and he frequently obtains weed from the drug dealer Saul (James Franco). You will find swear words, regular drug abuse, numerous fight scenes, and a wonderful last twist that made the movie all the more funny as well as interesting.

The tale commences on a truly nice, easy and light way. The problem started when Dale pays Saul a visit and he found a new breed of high grade weed they refer to as Pineapple Express. Then Dale visited Ted that same evening, he saw Ted, who is Saul’s boss here (among the bigshot and most dangerous drug dealer) and a law enforcer played by Rosie Perez kill a man. Dale left some tracks as he mistakenly dropped some of his joints at the place of the crime as he fled away in total shock. Saul and Dale knows for a fact that the joint will easily be traced back to them.

Dale pays Saul a visit one more time to examine the originality of the strain of the joint and if it can be traced to him eventually, and truly, the hit men were able to trace the joint to Saul, and this is the point where the two junkies started to run for their lives. They eventually recognize that they are not having hallucinations of some sort, and that Ted’s goons were attempting to track them down. As they try to run for their lives, they went to the forest and get to lose their car as a consequence.

Another party involved is Red played by Dannie McBride, he is the one who revealed their location to Ted’s mob, this ends into a brawl amongst this group and another Asian gang who are attempting to take up revenge for the death of their fellow gang member. Death occurs, and these all occurred at the weed storehouse. A number of people left dead because of this. Physical violence became magnified and both Dale and Saul are considerably immensed with it. All the fight scenes are awesomely choreographed, there were bombs exploding, and a number of gunshots which contributed to a grand and explosive closing.

Written by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen who also takes the star role, Pineapple Express is a well composed and unbelievably funny stoner comedy; it’s definitely expected to make you laugh your head off. However still, it’s also rather touching due to the authenticity in the feelings depicted.

Don Draper (Jon Hamm)

Mr Drapper fits all the bills of a protagonist, a very lucky protagonist though. How else would you explain him being at the helm of creative direction Sterling Cooper advertising firm? He later becomes a founding partner in Sterling Cooper Drapper Pryce. His is a character the others no very little about. Funny Ask Men think of him as one of the most influential identities.

Peggy starts off as a secretary to the Creative Director and later is promoted to a copywriting position. Her character is born in the late 30s and she gets to play the first woman writer in the firm since the World War II.

She leaves for another firm at some point.

Betty Draper (January Jones)

Peter Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser)

Vincent plays the role of a child from the splendid side of life. He however has lots of problems as he gets disapproved by his parents in almost everything he chooses to do, including going into advertising.

Just like its predecessor season, season two is made up of ten episodes. The playwright mainly focuses on the events related to a clash of kings. The story is still adapted from the novel; a song of Ice and Fire authored by one George Martin R.R.

Production

TV network HBO ordered season two of Game of Thrones on the 19th of April of 2011 just two days after its premiere. This season got a 15% increase in its budget so as to be able to stage the most important battle in the war. That was the battle of the black water and it occurs in episode number nine.

The filming of Game of Thrones took 106 shooting days. Two crews were set up to work in different settings so as to create and get the story together much faster.

Locations

In season two of Game of Thrones, Dubrovnik in Croatia is used in place of Malta for the scenes such as kings landing and in other places as well. The scenes that are set north of the wall were taken in Iceland and specifically on the Vatnajokull glacier in November of 2011. These are some of the most important bits to take note of about Game of Thrones season two.
