Withnail & I, 1987.
Directed by Bruce Robinson.
Withnail (Richard E. Grant) is an unsuccessful, pill-popping actor; ‘I,’ or Marwood (Paul McGann), is Withnail’s roommate and another equally underemployed actor. The time is 1969: Withnail is fast becoming a burned-out relic of the ’60s, while Marwood is trying to reassimilate into society. The two take a trip to the country in hopes of rejuvenating themselves, but things go from worse to even worse.
Perpetually wasted Withnail and the introspectively uptight I (Marwood), disappear half way up a mountain near Penrith to share some quality time……
There is a difficulty encountered by all reviewers when it comes to writing something subjective on a confirmed cult classic. In terms of tricky it sits somewhere between negotiating an extension from a loan shark, while convincing lie detectors Age of Extinction was a good idea. »

Shakira and her fellow “The Voice” coach Blake Shelton will perform their duet, “Medicine,” on Sunday night’s Academy of Country Music Awards. The ceremony, which airs live from Las Vegas, will be co-hosted by Shelton and Luke Bryan. The Band Perry will open the show with what the Acms are calling an “explosive” performance (we’re hoping they mean pyro). Other previously announced performers include Bryan and Florida Georgia Line, George Strait, Hunter Hayes, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Toby Keith, Keith Urban, and Lady Antebellum with Stevie Nicks (in a re-creation of their Cmt “Crossroads” special). Garth Brooks will present Merle Haggard with the Crystal Milestone Award. Hitfix will be at the event and will bring you all the news at it happens. »
