I’ve been thoroughly enjoying Scalzi‘s listings from the Rough Guides‘ Movie guides. They make me wonder what the canon lists of movies would be for specific topics. I’ve listed a few that I think should be on the list (sticking to movies that I’ve seen, of which there are far too few). What else belongs there?
It’s Friday. If you’re reading this blog, I’d say that you ain’t got shit to do. I’m gonna talk about movies that’ll get you high!
Pot movies have always been my guilty pleasure. I’m possibly the world’s biggest square, but I just can’t get enough of movies where the heros bumble around, baked out of their brains getting sidetracked by talking bags of Doritos. I like the uncertainty that comes along with these movies. Sometimes they have something important to say. Sometimes they’re just stupid fun. The only constant, really, is the Doritos.
I couldn’t in good faith stop at five today, but there are legion more that I haven’t seen. What are the good ones? Which movies make you laugh like a Canadian Olympic snowboarder?
