So, to make a long story short, my dominant arm is 95% functional, but I had a significant amount of damage done to my forearm and wrist which required surgery (an use to hurt all the time). Finally around 2017 I was approved for a medical marijuana card, so I take this genre serious, past and present. :P

Going Berserk!
It Came From Hollywood!
Pray TV
Monty Python & the Holy Grail
Life of Brian
Meaning of Life
Brazil (sorta, to me at least)
Friday
The Big Lebowski
Dazed & Confused
Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas
Half Baked
Mallrats
The Breakfast Club
Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure
Clerks
Reefer Madness

I've sporadically watched Cheech & Chong movies throughout my life (going on 38 now), but I could definitely use some guidance for what to watch by them.

Detroit Rock City is a good one. Not sure if it came out on Laserdisc.

Welcome to the club duderino.

Well, not all comedy but a good time is guaranteed for all.

A Classic: Wizard of Oz, The: The Ultimate Oz - Collector's Edition (1939) [ML103990]

Not that its stoner related but Dead Man is a great movie and a soundtrack that allows your mind to do all the work since there is little dialogue.

I'd also mention any classic animation like Looney Tunes, Disney (esp: Alice in Wonder Land & Fantasia), Winnie the Pooh...as well as things like Heavy Metal (1981) [74656]

Don't forget Pink Floyd's The Wall as well as their concert stuff like Pulse.

In that vein check this out:
Paul McCartney: Rupert & the Frog Song (1985) [PA-86-M037]

How about:
Kids (1995) (Uncut) [LDVM6311]

Also, personally I enjoy all the Nature and Space stuff from Lumivison especially IMAX features:
Ring of Fire (1991) [LVD9509]
Floating World, The (1989) [LVD9024]
To Fly (1976) [LVD9113]

The Mind's Eye series is a trip as well:
Gate to the Mind's Eye, The (1994) [ID2926MM]
Odyssey Into the Mind's Eye (1996) [MLV49877]

These are also pretty chill:
Anima Mundi (1992) [ID2609MM]
Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance (1983) [ID5304PA]
Microcosmos (1996) [10480 CS]
Ansel Adams: Photographer (1981) [ID5339PA]
Isao Tomita: The Planets (1991) [ID8421DB]


Seasonal Stoner ideas:
Nightmare Before Christmas, The: Deluxe CAV Laserdisc Edition (1993) [2774 CS]

Comedy:
Gallagher: Melon Crazy (1984) [LV2339]

I hope you feel better soon ;)

Saw this on my 18th birthday in early 1996 in Australia. A priest walked out at the end rape scene. The movie was controversial in the media here. It changed my world, nothing could've been cooler. It was like the cool kids I'd worshipped at high school but 100 x cooler. This is a time when culture wasn't instantly shared, where you had to discover things. This movie is representative of that time to me.

Wow, thank you! I literally forgot about all of these (except Nightmare Before Christmas) or haven't seen them. Heavy Metal is such a classic, featuring quite a few people from SCTV oddly enough, I don't even vaguely remember the plot to it, it has been so long. I plan on watching/re-watching all of these. :)

How about the rather superb BBC TV series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Also Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii, a great one on LD (various editions issued) & the DVD can be picked up fairly cheaply & has the original version plus the so called Directors Cut - four guys when they really were on top form.

Hope your issues improve for you, take care.

Cheers :thumbup: .

I still have not seen that Pompeii set at all and so many people have told me too over the years, by July 1st! I swear, gonna order it!

Forgot about hitchhiker's guide! I liked that too.....geez, I forgot Mystery Science Theater 3000 somehow too and I even took a damn picture of it the other day, haha.

Thanks, issues have improved as much as they can, the salves I use on my arm are actually nonintoxicating (1:1 thc:cbd) and knock out the pain within minutes of application, usually for the day when it does hurt (usual cold, damp, humid, etc). It's not perfect, but it's not really bad either. :)

What’s the vernacular name for stoner minstrelsy? That’s sort of how I feel about some of these movies and also maybe this thread.

To answer the original question, it’s hard. Nothing from decades ago can compare to Reno 911 or Trailer Park Boys. They are like the high fructose corn syrup of stoner entertainment.

I guess...Tommy? It depends on what kind of experience you’re looking for. The ultimate weed show for me is clearly a tie between Star Trek the Next Generation and Cosmos. If you just want to trip balls then I guess movies like Kids and Brazil are good but to me I’m either looking for something pleasant or quietly philosophical. Galaxy Express 999 or Richard Feynman lectures on Youtube.

But LD is expensive and the discs take up too much room in the van so I don’t know if it matters.

I once heard a story from a guy who used to work at a videostore, apparently some stoner accidentally rented Toy Story and later raved about it, I guess talking toys is gonna feel really weird when you're high.

Really going out on a limb here.....

How about "FANTASTIC PLANET" ?
May fall under zeta's trippin balls genre !.

Also by the same creator (Rene Laloux)
LIGHT YEARS ......
These two films are both animated and highly original.
Gives credibility to the imagination and unlimited potentials therein.

Another title that comes to mind is Heath Ledger's last film -
The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnasses. Now that film obviously is from the mind of the Infamous Terry Gilliam.
Another from him is the "Zero Theorem", I do believe these two are also under the "trippin balls" genre category.

Just my two cents.
Have not posted in a bit.
This thread caught my eye and I did not note these titles among those mentioned.

Alright, alright, alright.....

Check ya later !

A couple non Laserdisc recommendations:

Ali G Indahouse - Funny stoner comedy staring Sacha Baren Cohen as Ali G.

Top buzzer - Really underrated British Tv show that aired on MTV back in '04/'05. Two guys live, smoke and sell weed from their top floor flat in London. Hilarity ensues. Stars famous british actor Stephen Graham.

Also in that vein: Grok Gazer: Todd Rundgren (1990) [ID2125LA] although it is basically just a color cycling screen saver.

The whole Phantasm series is great while high, it might be the only way to understand the fourth film as well.

It has been, and always will be my favorite horror franchise, and it's something else to watch it while high on edibles (or if you want a really fun time, mushrooms).

Edit: Just saw you wer asking for Comedies, whoops. Phantasm 3 sorta has Evil Dead 2 vibes, but I wouldn't call any of them comedies.

How the hell has this thread continued without the mere mention of Santa Flan, the patron saint of creamy desserts and CEO of the Everything Except Shoes corporation?

A film that features Mr T as the Incredible Bearded Lady, and two Rastafarian eyeballs disguised as milkmen!

Freaked requires a place on this film list.

Also, Curry and Pepper deserves a place on the list I think. An odd choice for a 'stoner comedy' perhaps but watch it and decide for.yourself. Great film.

Thanks for all the suggestions! Freaked completely blew past my radar, which makes little sense, since I was quite the Bill & Ted fan back in the day.

Between time and money, I've got alot of catching up to do.
