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 :)

@generaltitsvonchodehoffen, Sometimes it’s very true. It makes football look like a male soap opera.
My personal favorites to watch while high -
Grandma’s Boy- HIlarious stoner flick.
Tron- Cool movie, with a great soundtrack.
Across The Universe- It’s a Beatles movie.
Up- A very colorful and funny kids movie.
Alright, one that I’m pretty sure no one has mentioned: The Animatrix
a film based on the Matrix trilogy composed of 9 animated short films and holy fuck the last one was like some Alex Grey shit
@LSDXM, lol. It could have been done in a much more thoughtful way. It was basically done in the most explosively “artsy” attempting way possible, trying to be the most catastrophic “crazy” movie. It was way over bored, to the point I couldn’t watch it. It just seemed amateurish.
The void is about the bad trip. Death and repeat, the feeling of being stuck, forever. If you ever have a bad trip, and you have this perspective come at you – boy howdy is that fucking hard to deal with.
@theknottedpiper, Yes I have, and I guess the name juststartedanewlife would imply that. I guess I was kinda raugh. I don’t look at people who use drugs or alcohol any less than the ones who don’t, It’s just that a lot of people use them to be “cool” or use them as shortcut to improve their imagination and thinking capacity. In that case the downsides of using such drugs is more than the benefits. I’m pretty sure you know what I’m talking about.
I once spent a green day watching the Left Behind series. Its those Christian movies about the rapture and the end of days with Kirk Cameron. It wasn’t terrible. The biggest thing I would have changed was the soundtrack. They used contemporary Christian music that was joyful and uplifting. I would have used something like the Deftones. Something dark, you know? It was also weird because people would break in the middle of a crisis situation to pray. That seems weird to me, but what do you expect from a Christian movie? It also got me thinking about how politics and religion intermingle, and how they portrayed certain members of the government, the united nations and the banking industry. Check it out if you don’t completely object to watching Christian propoganda.
@ijesuschrist, I don’t understand why you would imply that I’ve never had a bad trip, but it’s cool. Anyways, I’m fully aware of what the movie is about. Like I said, it leaves me with far too deep an existential crisis for me to deal with. This is the same reason I no longer indulge in heavy dissociative chemicals; I’m too happy with my life to spend hours fearing it being ripped away at the moment (which is funny because when I was a teen that’s all I wanted out of life, to be ripped away from it in the most gruesome way possible, that being the reason I spent my a decade on a 700+mg/day dxm regimen)
Im sure all of these have probably been mentioned here, but just in case;
Carl Sagan – Cosmos. <3
Life in a day.
Dead leaves – some crazy fast paced anime, its fun trying to follow whats going on.
Serial experiments Lain.
Deep sea documentaries.
Not to everyone’s taste, but I find intense movies are improved dramatically by smoking. Bear in mind they can be pretty stressful, and if you get neurotic highs they can be rather upsetting.
The Grey – Those wolves man… fuck. and the plane crash is probably the best I’ve ever seen
Black Hawk Down – Brace for war violence, but if that doesn’t turn you off it will put your heart through your ribcage.
-Well put-together war movies can be incredibly intense, Saving Private Ryan, even for just the beach scene, is a must. Flags of our fathers, Das Boot (if you have a huge chunk of time to invest) Full Metal Jacket, etc.
Children of Men – Intriguing premise, and the filming style is unbelievable, some shots go for more than 10 minutes without a cut.
28 Days Later – I would argue one of the best zombie movies ever made.
The Thing – The prequel they just did wasn’t bad, but the first one is just unreal. Predates CGI, and I would still rank the monster with anything anyone can do with a computer today.
also, Fantastic Planet is win
