I'm looking for some new things to watch while stoned (I've got my medical card!). Funny.. enthralling.. trippy.. what are your favorites?
An old movie called Liquid Sky
Babe (the little pig movie).
"Liquid Sky" is the most unintentionally funny bad film ever. On a par with Mommie Dearest, but with extreme 1980's flair.
Get stoned, have munchies, and watch it.
Can I get an invite?
I used to watch Xena:Warrior Princess in my stoner days and found it hilarious.
Reality TV. Survivor in particular.
From the library: Any of the '90s era Masterpiece Theater imports to PBS - lush drizzly greenery, awkward pauses, people standing around - will work.
From the internet: Anything narrated by Richard Attenborough and TED talks.
DVD: Harry Potter, Clue, Beyond the Black Rainbow
I like The Liquid Sky suggestion too! But my old VHS copy has long been destroyed anybody know where to get it?
When I used to get high all time I would frequently watch Barbarella or the cheesy Flash Gordon from 1980.
The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T
Why is it that most *out* homosxuals are on drugs? We have noticed this for decades.
The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T - a musical nightmare by Dr. Seuss
The Adventures of Prince Achmed - an Arabian Nights adventure told in exquisitely animated silhouette figures made of black paper cut-outs. Made in the silent era but accompanied by a beautiful score.
I've never gotten high before, but if I had pot I'd take up r6's suggestion of getting high and watching TED talks. That sounds awesome.
Freaks...movie from the 30s I think.
Drop acid and watch The Little Mermaid on the biggest screen you can find. Religious experience, I swear.
Bengali in Platforms
So now we know what's wrong with MPC.
Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf
Re you fucking 15 OP? Who the hell gets high anymore...sick
Anything colorful, visual, musical and/or fantastical, but without too much sadness or dialogue.
Conversely, horror movies, unless you're prone to anxiety and paranoia from THC (it happens, especially from certain batches).
Comedies, of course. But nothing too intellectual. You'll miss half of it and wind up rewinding to catch something, then you'll drop the remote or hit the menu button and wind up at the beginning of the movie and too stoned to fast forward or care anymore (this also happens).
Also old movies of any sort. Turn down the volume if you like, because these also make cool background wall paper for when you're doing other fun stoner things, like eating, listening to music, masturbating/having sex, blurting out non sequiturs about stupid shit to anyone who will listen (or no one, if you live alone), or just spacing out in between all of the above.
An old pro.
Fantasia has worked for many years for many people.
R21--You need to get stoned tonight and watch this movie. The dancing hippos will put a smile on your sour old puss.
First of all, congratulations and I mean that sincerely.
I found "Scarface" to be really intense. I was blown away by the beauty and talent of Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, which I had never appreciated before.
Strangers with Candy, definitely. Made by stoners for stoners.
The Newshour with Jim Lehrer
The rinse cycle
Valley of the Dolls staring DL fave Patty Duke.
The Looney Looney Bugs Bunny Movie. Your gut will hurt for a week afterwards from laughing so hard.
High on what? It really does depend on the answer.
A lava lamp.
you arent shrooming, you arent trippin... you are just getting stoned. You will fall asleep during whatever movie you idiot
I forgot about Liquid Sky. What a stinker. What happened to the crazy lesbian who sang "ME AND MY RHYTHM BOX!" ?
If you're in an 80s bad movie mode, make it a double feature with Repo Man, which i loved, but hasn't aged well (unless you're stoned).
Smoke copious amounts of pot and watch The Frankenstorm. We have front row seats here in New York. Hope my dealer doesn't raise his prices.
"Stairway to Heaven" a movie from the 40s with David Niven.
Also - "Beauty and the Beast" (Jean Cocteau)
Was high when I saw both of them for the first time and it was wonderful.

Go fuck yourself, gramps.
Pee Wee's Christmas Special.
Adventure Time (cartoon on Cartoon Network)
(also, pretty much most science, pseudoscience, outer space, whatever else... learning while stoned is good!)
for something a little Halloween themed, Young Frankenstein
The Adventures of Baron Von Munchausen
Chopped (food tv)
There are some really great suggestions here, thanks everyone! I'll throw my own suggestion in- I watched a documentary a couple of weeks ago on PBS called "Lord of the Gourds". I was stoned out of my gourd (ha) and it was unreal. Think Best in Show meets giant pumpkins. I almost thought it was a mocumentary.
Josie and the Pussycats is awesome high
Beyond the Valley of the Dolls
Alice in Wonderland
Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion
2001 could be great, or could make you a paranoid overthinking wreck.
Reefer Madness. Old no-budget instructional films warning teens about the dangers of drink, drugs, VD, etc. are even funnier when high.
"How To Say No: Moral Maturity" (1951)
MPC! How are you? Datalounge refugees got shut down, how do you feel about Patty Hearst? Or about 9-11?
I enjoyed these movies while high:
Vanilla sky, or the original Spanish version open your eyes.
Any of the "Substitute" movies there are 3 or 4 of them.
Alien, Aliens, Alien 3 but skip Alien resurrection
any sort of weird indie film
Welcome to the dollhouse

Great movie, but not something I personally would want to watch while high.

I'm pretty sure this is satirical, but just in case it wasn't... Probably more people are getting high than ever before.
Puff the Magic Dragon
Pink Floyds "the Wall"
Welcome to the Dollhouse
Being John Malkovich
Watch your step! It is a long way down if you are high.
Waiting to Exhale
Xanadu. Never disappoints.
Disney's ALICE IN WONDERLAND.
Wild at Heart.
The Lawrence Welk reruns make you feel really fucked up even if you aren't, so I can't even comprehend watching them while high.
Carl Sagan on Nova.
The Wizard of Oz synchronized to Dark Side of the Moon
My two favorite stoner movies are Fast, Loose, & Out of Control -- a documentary about a lion tamer, a topiarist, robots, and mole rats; and the king of all bizarro stoner mind fuck movies: Phantoms of the Phantasm -- really beyond description, unlike anything I've ever seen, I've watched it many times & always see something new.
plate o' shrimp
Identikit aka The Driver's Seat aka Psychotic with Liz Taylor and Andy Warhol in a bit part..The dialogue is priceless
I once had a wonderfully maudlin evening watching "Love Is A Many-Splendored Thing" while high on Percodan. BF came home and found me sobbing into a bag of Cheetos.
I CAN'T believe I am the first one to mention Cheech & Chong.
Fargo or Raising Arizona.
And shows like Chopped and House Hunters (especially the International version) never fail to capture my attention. You can join the broadcast at any time and still totally get into it.
The ITV Christmas Pantos written by Simon Nye are particularly hilarious when viewed while high.
There are four, based on children's stories but told with adult innuendo, they are Cinderella, Aladdin, Dick Whittington and this link which goes to Jack and the Beanstalk.
Jack's mother is played in drag by Adrian Edmondson, real-life husband of DL favorite, Jennifer Saunders.
