Movies that made me high.

From here...

I went by myself to see this at the theater, and I was so jazzed by it, I was practically high, and the drive home felt like riding a fucking cloud.

Which is why I never tangled with drugs, if they do something to you stronger than the endorphin tsunami I was going through, it would very probably fucking kill me.
Nertz to that.

Anyhoo, here's every flick that was like that....

Clash Of The Titans (1981)

From here.

Heavy Metal (1981)

See here.

Course, I saw it way after it came out, and just on TV, but still....

Return Of The Jedi (1983)

See here.

The first one, I took for granted, and Empire had that mysterious down cliffhanger, so....I was waiting for this one.
It's like my poor little 8 year old brain was holding a 3 year long pee.

Transformers The Movie (1986)

See here.

Fuck, yeah.

Batman (1989)

See here.

The others didn't have that feeling.
Not 'til the Nolans.

Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991)

See here.

Yeah,...I really think this was the best movie ever made by human beings up until this point in history.'s nitpick-able.
But in '91?
It owned my soul.

Independence Day (1996)

What can I say?
It was immersive, and jaw dropping in the theater, and it was when all these big explodey CG bells and whistles were brand new.
Now, you see it on TV, and it's like "pfft,...90's...".

This was the first and last "ride movie", that sucked me in.

The Two Towers/
Return of the King (2002-2003)

See here.

Yeah, these ones had the wars.

Gee, that was really a bigass gap for not receiving my endorphin wonder the 90's were hellish for me.

Freddy Vs. Jason (2003)

See here.

The Punisher (2004)

See here, and here.

Rocky Balboa (2006)

See here.

I didn't even know I was craving a proper wrap-up to this series so much until I saw the thing.
Then, well, I was jazzed.
I think I was carrying a lotta stuff into the theater with me that got exorcised.

Iron Man (2008)

See here.

Saw it twice, because I missed the Nick Fury thing the first time....

It was still just as good.

The Dark Knight (2008)

See here.


Missed the first one in the theater.

...and then, I missed all the other Avengers-lead-up flicks in the theater, cuz of the year of hell....

The Avengers (2012)

See here.

This one damned near killed me.
If you showed this to my 1991 self, his head would've exploded.

The Dark Knight Rises (2012)

See here., being able to look at that, apparently, I need an epoch making film every 2 years to keep my depression on an even keel.

Failing that, marriage to an insomniac nymphomaniac.

Either way, someone has to keep it coming, for now, it's Hollywood.

I remember seeing Clash of the Titans (on a double bill with Zorro: The Gay Blade!) when I was about 12 or so. Really enjoyed it then, and kinda still do.

I love it that this was the beginning of big stars slumming blockbusters. After Brando played Jor-El, you could have Laurence Olivier playing Zeus.

I'm not sure I totally got Zorro: The Gay Blade at the time, but I still enjoy the hell out of that one.
