Top Drug Related Movies...

Post by SToNeR ChRiS » Tue May 25, 2010 2:34 am

Well, I can't put them in any order, but my favorite STONER movies that have marijuana explicitly involved in them are...

Harold and Kumar (sequel as well)
Half Baked
Cheech and Chong (I still have to see a few of them, but Up in Smoke in particular)
Pineapple Express
Grandma's Boy
Dazed and Confused
Detroit Rock City
Friday (two sequels as well, Next Friday and Friday after Next)
How High
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (have not seen this in a lonnng time)
Clerks (sequel as well)


As for movies that are drug based, outside of marijuana, a couple come to mind...

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Requiem for a Dream
Blow
Pulp Fiction


Drug based movies that I've heard about but never seen...

Super High Me
Bong Water
Tenacious D
American Gangster


I know there are PLENTY more, but my mind can't come across to thinking what they are...

If you haven't seen any of the movies that I've mentioned, be sure to check them out. Does anyone have any other suggestions on compelling drug based movies? I'd love to broaden my horizons...

I saw on TV today, this man lost his son, his son died...
So he had him cremated, took his ashes, and then made it into a Diamond ring...
Now he watches his son shine every day.
I just thought about that, while I sit here ashing in this ashtray...

The only drug-related type movie I can think of that you haven't listed was Bad Lieutenant starring Harvey Keitel.

Another favorite of mine that has a bit of drug use in it (mushrooms) was Natural Born Killers.

You should definitely check out Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny! As for American Gangster, I found it to be a long and boring movie. I love long movies but this movie couldn't hold my interest. I saw Super High Me and it was okay, worth the one time watch at least. Never saw Bong Water.

Yeah man, I've heard about Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny. Have yet to see it, but will definitely keep my eye out for it!

Thanks for the other suggestions as well both Gore and Flyin.

Wow, reading through the list, I think I've seen most of those movies aside from 3 or 4.

Uhm, I don't think this was mentioned, but there is also movie called "candy". Pretty sad as well. About heroin...
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0424880/


There is "trainspotting" and "the acid house" both by Irvine Welsh... I'm sure there are other movies that he has turned from his book...

Also, harold & kumar, 28 days, I don't think I've ever seen the full movie. This is more of a rehab movie... and Taking woodstock as the title says, about woodstock. I think that's all I can think of right now...

Oh!! There is a fair bit of marijuana use and dealing in a movie I completely forgot about. It's called "The Wackness" with Ben Kingsley. It was one of those movies that slipped through the mainstream cracks and got lost in the shuffle of blockbusters. I highly, HIGHLY recommend this movie if you love weed, and 90's hip hop and rap.

Oh yes, and Famke Janssen is in it, too! Meeeoowwrrrr!

The best movies that I've seen that is drug related..

Requiem for a dream... never seen a movie like that which left such a big impact on me..
Fear and Loathing.. although the book is way better and it's a little over rated, the movie is still amazing and top notch
Blow.. it's just a great movie with an actual emotional standpoint like requiem for a dream
Pulp Fiction.. it's an extremely good movie, but not my favorite
The basketball diaries.. really good movie dealing with heroin/drug addiction in high school kids and how it changed them
American Gangster.. This is actually probably my favorite movie on the best drug related movie list for me. It's just overall action packed and extremely entertaining..

favorite weed related movies (in no specific order)
Harold and Kumar
Half Baked.. it's funny, but it's incredibly stupid and overplayed so I can barely watch it anymore
Cheech and Chong up in smoke (don't really like all the other ones)
Pineapple Express
Grandma's Boy
Dazed and Confused
Friday n friday after next
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
Clerks 1-2
The beautiful ordinary (aka Remember the daze).. it's basically a modern day dazed n confused, not as good because it's like a remake, but I really liked it


Also, for anyone looking for drug related movies.. here's every movie with drugs in it and which ones they are

^^ Yeah I ended up watching Spun last night for the first time... pretty good movie. Nothing can really seem to compete with Requiem though!

I also ended up watching Basketball Diaries and Humboldt County yesterday... Both are drug/weed related movies as well.

Since I first made this thread, I've also seen Trainspotting, Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny and Super High me.

I love drug based movies. :) I've enjoyed each of these movies in their own way. It seems I still have a few to check out. Not many though. :( Keep the suggestions up peeps, if there are any more.

Computer games don't affect kids. I mean, if Pac-Man had affected us as kids, we would all be running around darkened rooms, munching magic pills, and listening to repetitive electronic music.
