Movies to watch when high
Hello everyone, I recently read a discussion of what people like to listen to while high and I thought that a list of what movies to watch when high deserves its own discussion. Some movies are so awesome to watch, the ones I’ve watched high have all been awesome; avatar, inception, limitless, saw(very strange experience with this one, number 3 I believe), wall-e, the lion king and probably my favourite, tron! Please feel free to add :)

Based on your response to Enter the void, you just didn’t say anything about the bad trip – which is all I could think about the entire time of the movie. Exactly how parallel my bad trips were with that movie – the “birds eye view” of everything and everyone, shells of animals going about their lives, seeing everything from afar, a distant perspective, and then realizing all their doings are meaningless, yet we blindly give life meaning, happiness.
Never once do we feel good in the movie. The very opening seen is death – a horrible scary death from a crashing airplane. Then the fear of authority, self-doubt, terrible introspection, getting shot…
The reason I did enjoy the movie, and WOULD watch it again, rather than avoid it like requiem is when he is reborn, it is a sense of a reset, not a total repeat. He is reborn into a new life, with new chances, new perspectives, new environment. Its beautiful, but you still are coming down from a bad trip – It is EXACTLY done to mirror the bad trip. You come down, and you thank god you’re alive, and that drifting aimlessly through the shells of animals won’t last forever. And here you are, a reset button. All the good you wanted to do, you now have a motivation for. All the desires to pursue true happiness are amplified, all life seems new again, and incredibly vivid.
It is a beautiful movie. It drops you to the bottom, and you have the chance to climb back up. The bad trip. I loved it.
Requiem just leaves you at the bottom to rot. Fucking terrible movie. First time I watched it I was super high, right before bed. Didn’t know what I was getting into.
lol, i watched The Matrix once when i was baked, and instead of getting into the movie and living it, i was right outside of it, and in each shot i could see the props and the greenscreen and all that.. fucking funny. and i could see that the actors were just, acting, jerking about in their spaceship… haha.
watched enter the void last month. one of the best cinematic experiences ever! do not watch it sober i tell you! first time watching it you need to watch it high. and then blow your fucking mind!
@ijesuschrist, my bad trips aren’t like that at all, and the rebirth scene didn’t give me that sense of a refreshing fresh slate at all. I understand your perspective, but my greatest fear is that I won’t be liberated from this existence after death. The idea of having to do this again terrifies me.
My bad trips are nothing more than me fearing the process of ego death. When I break through and have a “level five” trip the impression that I get is that I set up all these levels and filters I have to be willing to break through to get beyond ego death to transcendence, and if I don’t achieve full ego death it’s because I wasn’t ready to and the scary things that happen when I’m tripping are there to keep me from transcending when I’m not ready to make full use of it. They usually follow the same pattern of paranoid delusion resulting from the guilt I feel for not living up to what I think I should, fear that what I’m doing is wrong (i/e that Im using illegal drugs, doing “grown up stuff” [this went away when I realized I'm a 'grown up' now], that “god is going to punish me” [from growing up in a catholic family]) and so on.
This movie just reinforced my fear that even though there’s a spiritual aspect to reality it’s just a horrifying cycle of pain and shame. The fact that he just comes right back just made me feel like there was no escape.
@LSDXM, Yeah… I felt that too – the repetition of suffering. But it is a senseless fear (as they all are, of course) in that you do not remember the previous life, and there is no need for the suffering – it is not an absolute, you decide to encourage or abandon suffering and shame.
The empty shell-people trip blows cock.
The Fountain is an AMAZING movie, I watched it sober and it was so intense. I loved every moment of it. I am not sure if it would be easy to follow while baked though..perhaps have a note book on hand to write down the ideas it gives you then discuss after.
Microscopic… I think is the titles, it’s a documentary of bugs going about their daily/nightly routines. Everything from fetching food to mating. All on the score of classical music.
THEN my ABSOLUTE faves to just laugh to are: A very goofy movie (I watched that almost everyday 16-17) and The Thief and The Cobbler… I can’t say cause I don’t know but I bet it would be cool to watch on mushrooms.
Has anybody seen the Evil Dead horror movies when blazed out of their fucking skulls? It was nothing short of a a mind blowing experience for me. Especially for those who get a slow, thought provoking high. The spontaneity and camera angles of the movies made it just crazy cool. It’s better to watch with friends though, because alone you might get kind of paranoid. Lol
“La Planète sauvage” or Fantastic Planet. An 1973 animation movie that is… just plain strange, trippy, it’s like watching a strange painting made into a movie… I really recommend it since not many persons know about it
