The infamous 4/20 is upon us and that means a majority of you are going to spend the entirety of your Thursday glued to your couch, bong in hand, and eyes on the TV.
So here is a list of some essential movies for anyone who wants to make the most of the upcoming holi-daze. While this list is in no particular order, I suggest watching Interstellar before you get too high so that you don't end up crying in a corner questioning the nature of reality.
Let the king of comedy himself, Dave Chappelle, drain every ounce of laughter from you in the form of tears from your eyes. This stoner classic features Chappelle, Jim Breuer, and Harlan Williams as drug dealers after Chappelle drags them into a "business", which is stealing weed from the lab he works at as a janitor, or as he calls it, a "master of the custodial arts".
The three are in a full fledged issue when Chappelle is discovered by a local drug lord, and all hilarity ensues. The weed character names are cheesily hysterical!
This movie is the oldest one on the list, but there's no reason for you to consider it any less. Animal House should be viewed while high as an homage to simpler times, when 14-year-olds weren't smoking out of $500 vapes, and social media wasn't killing college life. Roll up a joint, throw on a Toga for the full effect, and enjoy this classic that had our parents laughing when they were stoned in college.
Space story, Matthew McConaughey acting, and Neil deGrasse Tyson accuracy. What more can you ask for in a mind-bending film? Prepare yourself for a voyage through time and space that will leaving you crying either from sadness or your brains being blown from not being able to understand the intricacies of space. I can promise you that you will not be let down by this sci-fi thriller.
When I say that Snatch is a fucking awesome movie, you can be sure that it is fucking awesome. Guy Ritchie directed this gem from start to finish where you'll follow the star-studded cast including the likes of Brad Pitt, Jason Statham, Alan Ford, and many more.
Some real guys' guys. You know, the type to walk into a bar, instantly impregnate every woman in there upon entry, order a scotch, throw it over his shoulder, down the pint of beer of the guy next to him, and then proceed to kill every guy in the bar with a few punches and about two roundhouse kicks.
You know, that type of guy. This action-packed movie follows the multiple story lines of these beasts as they turn every corner of the underground London crime scene.
Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny
Weed and Tenacious D go together like cocaine and waffles (better than you'd expect). This is one of those films that that needs no description, because you're better off just watching it and letting the genius of Jack Black amaze you with his strange storytelling and brilliant comedic teamwork with Kyle Gass.
This movie is a staple in any stoner's collection and should not be overlooked this Thursday when you yourself embark on a quest for your own metaphorical pick of destiny.
