Movies to Watch for High Christmas

A lot of people believe that movies are better seen when one is high on marijuana. But there are some movies that have proven to be better than others if they are watched when one is high. They make you laugh harder,  have fun with friends and enjoy an evening better generally.
The following is a list of movies that you can watch this Xmas in your sofa:

The Big Lebowski
Jeff Bridges plays Jeff Lebowski in this movie where he has the same name as a millionaire whose wife owes a lot of people so much money. Thugs attempt to force him to pay a debt that he does not know anything about. He accepts a high-paying job in a bid to get a lot of money to pay off the debt, but this leads him to more trouble. Soon, he has so many people after him. Can he escape them all?

In 1987, a college graduate takes a summer job at a local amusement park to pay for his expenses. In the park, he falls in love with a coworker, and he learns a lot about life, love, and other things. Rather than being a mere job, it becomes more of an educational experience for him. The movie stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg.

Beavis & Butt-Head Do America
This is an animated road comedy movie based on the hit MTV show, Beavis and Butt-Head. The movie stars Bruce Willis, Demi Moore and a host of other stars. Two teenagers wake up to find out that their television set has been stolen and they embark on a long journey across America to recover it, they face a lot of obstacles on the way, and they experience an adventure like never before. They encounter some ex-Motley Crue roadies, a smuggler of a deadly virus, a weird FBI agent and some more funny characters.

Up in Smoke
This is a true stoner movie that any marijuana lover must watch. It is about two stoners who unknowingly smuggle a van made of marijuana from Mexico to Los Angeles with a cop chasing after them. They were forced to drive the truck in order to meet up with a gig that they were due to play. The movie stars the all time classic duo Cheech and Chong.

Hansel & Gretel Get Baked
This movie is a retelling of the popular fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. In this movie, a brother and sister fight a witch that uses a unique blend of marijuana to entice young people to her home. She then kills and eats them in order to maintain their youth and beauty. One lesson, any marijuana lover will learn from this movie is that you must trust just a few reliable dealers.

Cheech Marin Returns to Pot Movies in Action Thriller DARK HARVEST

DARK HARVEST is Cheech Marin's first cannabis movie since Still Smokin, his final Cheech and Chong film in 1983. The new movie will be available on all digital platforms on January 9. In addition to Marin, who was recently hired by California as the perfect pitchman to help enroll cannabis businesses into the state system, the film stars James Hutson, A.C. Peterson, Tygh Runyan and Hugh Dillon. Dark Harvest is written and directed by James Hutson. The producers are James Hutson, Marc Petey, P. Lynn Johnson and Tim Laplante. The executive producer is Seth Willenson.

Dark Harvest chronicles the struggles of two growers and a suspended narcotics officer as they deal with a series of murders on the eve of marijuana legalization. The film is a gripping independent vision full of revelations as the two race to find the killer in this action thriller.

Dark Harvest is the first directorial effort of actor James Hutson. A protege of Ben Kingsley, Hutson studied at the British American Drama Academy in Oxford, England. Under Kingsley's direction, he played Vladimir in Waiting For Godot. The veteran actor has played roles ranging from Richard III to American Buffalo's 'Teach'. Hutson's film career launched after being a 'reader' during casting for Insomnia and Reindeer Games where directors John Frankenheimer and Chris Nolan cast Hutson, and hired him for rehearsal sessions with Al Pacino, Robin Williams, Charlize Theron and Ben Affleck. Hutson is a veteran of the cannabis industry, which lends a strong sense of authenticity to Dark Harvest taking you behind the scenes.

Cheech and Chong met in Vancouver, the setting for Dark Harvest, in the 1970's and launched their comedy career with the iconic smash hit Up in Smoke.

Dark Harvest was featured at the New York Cannabis Festival winning both best film and best actor awards, the Cannabis Film Festival in Colorado and a special screening at the High Times Cannabis Cup Festival in Las Vegas.

Cheech and Chong Up in Smoke 40th Anniversary Blu-Ray

Tommy Chong told variety that they're working on a Cheech and Chong Up in Smoke 40th Anniversary Blu-Ray.

First of all, very few people own a Blu-Ray player.  Second of all, Cheech Marin and Lou Adler did a great job on the Up in Smoke DVD commentary already.  Tommy wasn't included allegedly because relations between Tommy and Lou Adler weren't that great at the time.

Why did Variety interview Tommy?  Because Eminem (remember him?) has a new single which samples Earache My Eye (the song written by Gaye Delorme which allegedly Tommy Chong finagled his way into the writing credits).

Cheech and Chong Working on Cheech and Chong Documentary

Tommy Chong told Variety that they are working on a Cheech and Chong documentary.  This is odd being Josh Gilbert already did what was essentially a Cheech and Chong doc, a/k/a Tommy Chong.

Josh did an awesome job and included lots of rare C&C many that the film cost a fortune.

RIP Cheech and Chong Producer Peter Macgregor-Scott

Peter Macgregor-Scott died in New York City Wednesday after a taxi accident.

He produced Steve Martin's The Jerk, The Fugitive, two Batman films, Revenge of the Nerds and more.  He was also a production manager on Animal House.

Cheech and Chong fans should know he was the producer for Next Movie, Still Smokin' and The Corsican Brothers.  In a 2003 interview, he said Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong were sober professionals. "There was never any smoke. When the boys are working, it's a very clean set. No alcohol, no smoke, no nothing," Macgregor-Scott said. "They learned that in their live performances. They went to Folsom Prison and they had a little too much extra, and it wasn't a good day for them. They said, 'OK, that's the end of that. We go on clean as a whistle from now on.' I did three pictures with them, and that was the way it was from then 'til now, I'm sure."

In addition, he produce Cheech Marin's Born in East LA.

He was 69 years old.

Tommy Chong Should be Charged with Fraud

Snopes has been investigating articles being posted by verified celebs on Facebook.  The celebrity posts a link to an article.  When you click on it, it redirects users to a spam web site banned by Facebook. The site has a dummy link.  When you click on it, it posts a bogus article in your newsfeed and Tommy Chong gets paid.  It's called 'influence marketing.'

Snopes called Tommy Chong's reps, but they didn't return the call.

Tommy and Paris Chong should be ashamed of themselves.

Tommy Chong and the other celebs should be charged with fraud.

Real Life Sgt Stadanko has Died

Abe Snidanko who worked undercover in Vancouver busting hippies, has died. He was the inspiration for Cheech and Chong's Sgt Stadanko (Up in Smoke, Nice Dreams, Los Cochinos).

He died August 2nd at 79 years old.

“We needed a name for the cop, and I immediately thought of Abe Snidanko,” said Chong. “I used his name purposely, it was my way of saying, ‘How you doin’, Abe?’ It did make him famous. Years later I got a call from the narcotics office in Vancouver and they said Abe was retiring and wanted me to send him a signed Up in Smoke poster. So I did and apparently Abe wasn’t too pleased.”

California Contributing $1 Million to Cheech Marin Museum

Cash-strapped California is putting $1 million of their budget towards creating the Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art, Culture and Industry.  They only need to raise $2 million more.

The museum will house Cheech Marin's 700+ Chicano art pieces.

Why they'd want Cheech's name on it (with his past) is beyond me.
Your tax dollars at work, California.

"Good Fortune" The Inspirational Life Story Of John Paul DeJoria, Hits The Big Screen

NEW YORK, June 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Good Fortune, the new documentary chronicling the "rags-to-riches" story of entrepreneur and philanthropist John Paul DeJoria, affectionately known as JP, opens today.

JP is best known for building not just one, but two iconic billion-dollar businesses—John Paul Mitchell Systems and PatrĂ³n Spirits—and he now adds John Paul Pet and ROK Mobile to that roster as well. His professional accomplishments include several additional global enterprises, but what's most important to him is staying true to his mantra, "Success Unshared is Failure."

DeJoria moves purposefully and energetically through life, rallying his employees, spearheading back-to-work programs for the homeless, helming a high-seas ship in the Arctic to protect whales from poachers, racing a motorcycle in a charity ride, and working indefatigably on behalf of over a hundred philanthropic ventures. His joyous and hands-on approach to everything he does inspired acclaimed documentarians Josh and Rebecca Tickell to make Good Fortune, a film about the subject's storied evolution, from a man who has been homeless, to his current status as a billionaire and the charismatic proponent of a pioneering and impactful form of philanthropy he calls "conscious capitalism."

Through a series of flashback footage and interviews with friends, fellow entrepreneurs, and business partners, including Arianna Huffington, Cheech Marin, Danny Trejo, and Michelle Phillips, Good Fortune is an uplifting, inspiring portrait full of wit, humor and substance. Narrated by Dan Aykroyd, JP's dear friend and business partner, Good Fortune follows one of the world's most celebrated business icons as he shares his ultimate secret of success: giving back.

"The film's subject is an extraordinary individual who started life with no material possessions and built a self-made fortune which has enabled him to act as one of the world's most contributive and effective leaders in philanthropy," says Aykroyd. "Sharing his good fortune and giving back,he continuously encourages others to do the same, and has created a network of positive influencers and initiators all over the planet."

JP believes that people, the planet and profit are closely intertwined, and he's on a mission to find innovative ways to share his good fortune with others. He uses resources and relationships to fund and promote causes that help the greater good. He radiates empathy, optimism, good will,and a sense that we should walk in each other's shoes. DeJoria's humility, wisdom, and captivating personality endear him to everyone he meets.

Good Fortune is distributed by Lionsgate and Paladin and produced by Big Picture Ranch. The film opens to the public in New York City on June 23rd and in Los Angeles on June 30th, with release to follow in select cities nationwide. Good Fortune is also available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon and will be available for download on August 1st.
