Are you looking for some movies to watch on shrooms? We can help you with that as we will be showing you what we deem are the 13 best movies to watch on shrooms!
We do not know about you, but we are thrilled to introduce this list. Without further delay, let us get to know these movies now!
1. Fantasia (1940)
English 2h 5m IMDb
Director: James Algar, Samuel Armstrong, Ford Beebe Jr.
Stars: Leopold Stokowski, Deems Taylor, The Philadelphia Orchestra
The first one on our list is Fantasia, probably a film you can always find on this kind of list.
Fantasia is an animated musical. However, it is different from the usual films. One could say this movie aimed to visualize music. Instead of telling one whole tale, this movie has eight parts set to classical music.
If you are in it for the story and all that, this movie will likely not suit your needs.
However, if you are looking to tickle your visual and auditory senses, we believe this film can deliver. This movie is a hit or miss, but we recommend giving it a shot before shooting it down.
If that is not enough, you can also check Fantasia 2000. Not as often recommended but still a good choice if you enjoyed this one.
2. My Neighbor Totoro (1988)
Japanese 1h 26m IMDb
Director: Hayao Miyazaki
Stars: Hitoshi Takagi(voice), Noriko Hidaka(voice), Chika Sakamoto(voice)
Next up, we have My Neighbor Totoro (also known as Tonari no Totoro).
This film is one of the most beloved films in Japan. However, its popularity has also spread out of the country. While widely known by anime lovers, it has been acknowledged by many non-anime lovers as well for its unique charm.
This film is an animated fantasy. It centers on two young girls named Satsuki and Mei and their adventures with friendly wood spirits.
As you might have already guessed, the original version of this film is in Japanese. You need not worry, though. There is already an English dub. Either way, the story of this film is easy to understand with or without words.
We recommend going with the original version. However, if you want to closely follow the whole plot without reading subtitles, going with the English dub might be the best option.
3. Spirited Away (2001)
Japanese 2h 5m IMDb
Director: Hayao Miyazaki
Stars: Daveigh Chase(English version), Suzanne Pleshette(English version), Miyu Irino(voice)
If you liked the previous film, we feel you will also enjoy this next one. Spirited Away is another animated fantasy. It is known as one of the best films of Studio Ghibli, along with My Neighbor Totoro and several others.
This film tells the story of Chihiro and her long and winding journey in the spirit world. That might sound like a premise for a horror story (which is not the best film to watch on shrooms), but do not skip yet!
This film is far from being a horror film. It is a pretty wholesome film with a good story and great art.
We did say that if you liked the previous film, you will probably like this one. However, even if you did not like the previous one, you might still want to try this one out.
4. The Tale of the Princess Kaguya (2013)
Japanese 2h 17m IMDb
Director: Isao Takahata
Stars: Chloë Grace Moretz(English version), James Caan(English version), Mary Steenburgen(English version)
With their popularity, you might have already seen the last two films we have shown you.
You might not be in the mood to rewatch any movies, but you might be on the lookout to add a Studio Ghibli film to your list. Well, you do not need to worry. We have another one for you.
This film is about a young girl that came out of a bamboo shoot, her magical and extraordinary life, and her real identity. The film will appear to tell a simple tale at the start. However, if you stick around, you will see it is no ordinary tale.
The Tale of the Princess Kaguya is a lesser-known Ghibli film. However, it still holds the magic of Ghibli films that many people love. Give it a try if you are interested with getting to know the animation film studio better.
5. Thor (2011)
English 1h 55m IMDb
Director: Kenneth Branagh
Stars: Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman
Next up, we have Thor. If you are a big fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), you have probably already seen this one.
However, if you are a big fan of the MCU, you would also know many of its films are gold and fun to rewatch again and again. This film is a superhero film that centers on introducing the titular character.
This movie has made this list as it can help with the visual and auditory needs in these moments. (If you have not watched the film yet, you might want to skip this next bit.)
It is not a big of a spoiler. However, the film ends on a somewhat happy note. Now, this is another reason this movie made it to the list. In times like this, happy endings are the endings we often want.
6. Interstellar (2014)
English 2h 49m IMDb
Director: Christopher Nolan
Stars: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain
Next up, we have another blockbuster. Let us talk about Interstellar.
This one is a science fiction film that centers on a group of astronauts on their mission to try and save humanity.
Being one of the best films of 2014, you might have already watched this one. However, let us go ahead and discuss why you might want to add this one to the list.
This one has made it on the list for several reasons. Like the previous film, it offers the visual and auditory tickle you want at these moments. (Again, look away now if you are not for spoilers.)
It is not that specific of a spoiler, but the movie ends on a good note. Other than that, Interstellar is a little weightier than the last films. However, still light enough for these moments. If you are looking for variety, add this one to the list.
7. Who Framed Roger Rabbit? (1988)
English 1h 44m IMDb
Director: Robert Zemeckis
Stars: Bob Hoskins, Christopher Lloyd, Joanna Cassidy
Are you still not sure what you want? Well, you might want to give our next movie a try.
This film is a little bit of everything. It is a comedy but also a mystery for one. This film is all about answering its title: Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
In this movie, humans and cartoon characters co-exist. As you can already see, it is undoubtedly one of the best movies to watch during these times with that premise alone. However, that is not all there is to it.
Maybe not the most visually appealing on the list, but this movie can still offer some tickle to the visual sense of a person. Additionally, it is a light movie that, as we have said, is usually a film of choice for moments like these.
8. Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971)
English 1h 40m IMDb
Director: Mel Stuart
Stars: Gene WilderJack AlbertsonPeter Ostrum
Up here, we have Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. It is one of the oldest films on this list.
However, it is undoubtedly not the least known. It is one of the most-watched films of all time, and you might have already seen it before. Still, many would agree it is a movie you can enjoy watching again and again.
This movie is a musical fantasy and is all about Charlie Bucket and his visit to Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. With this premise?
We believe it is already evident why this one made it to the list. However, that is not all. It might be an old film, but its visuals and story are things that fit for moments like these.
9. Fantastic Fungi (2019)
English 1h 21m IMDb
Director: Louie Schwartzberg
Stars: Brie Larson(voice), Andrew Weil, Giuliana Furci
Let us step away from fiction for a bit. Let us talk about the mushroom movie.
So far, we have discussed different kinds of fiction. We have pretty much focused on senses and feelings. While not the best time for some hard thinking, why not learn a thing or two at the moment? If you like the idea, you might want to consider Fantastic Fungi then!
This film is a documentary on fungi. Unlike the other ones, this one can provide a much calmer vibe. It is probably not the best pick if you are looking to tickle your senses, but it can still help there.
This film still does offer some visually appealing scenes. After all, its cinematography is one of the most praised aspects of this film.
If you want something calmer and thought-provoking in a totally different way, this one might be the best one for you!
10. Yellow Submarine (1968)
English 1h 30m IMDb
Director: George Dunning
Stars: Paul McCartney(uncredited), George Harrison(uncredited), Ringo Starr(uncredited)
Are you a big fan of The Beatles? Well, this movie right here might be for you. Let us talk about the Yellow Submarine next.
This film is an animated musical. It is about a fictional place called Pepperland, the attack of imaginary creatures called Blue Meanies on this paradise, and the adventure of saving this land.
This movie mostly took inspiration from the music of The Beatles at that time. With that, you can expect this film to be filled with tons of good music.
If you are after something that can tickle your sense of hearing, this one is undoubtedly one you might want to consider.
Additionally, as you might have already seen from the trailer or even the poster, this movie is one of the most colorful ones yet. With that, you can expect this movie to fill, not only your ears, but your eyes too.
11. Loving Vincent (2017)
English (United Kingdom) 1h 34m IMDb
Director: Dorota Kobiela, Hugh Welchman
Stars: Douglas Booth(voice), Jerome Flynn(voice)Robert Gulaczyk(voice)
Next up, we have an odd entry here. At first glance, many might have no doubt that this film belongs on a list such as this one. That is not wrong. However, it is not entirely correct either.
This movie is one of the most artistic films one will ever find as it is a fully painted animated film. If it is visuals you are after, this one should be one to consider.
However, this film talks about Vincent van Gogh, a famous painter that held a troubled soul. As one would expect from a movie about this great artist, it has heavy themes.
Still, we believe that is not a reason to avoid the film. We suggest one watches it on mute. If you decide to add this film to your list, keep it on mute and add your choice of calming background music instead.
12. Alice in Wonderland (2010)
English 1h 48m IMDb
Director: Tim Burton
Stars: Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter
Over here, we have Alice in Wonderland. This one is another film you might have already seen. If you have watched it before, you will likely know that it is one of those films one can keep watching and watching again.
From the name alone, you might already have a good idea of the premise of this one – whether you have already seen it or not.
This movie is based on the famous classic by Lewis Carroll. Simply put, it tells of the magical adventure of a young girl in a fictional place known as Wonderland.
If you are looking for something that will tickle your visual sense but not overwhelm it, this movie is one you want to consider. Its cinematography and aesthetics are undoubtedly pleasant to the eyes. Pretty to look at without being too much.
13. Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016)
English 1h 53m IMDb
Director: James Bobin
Stars: Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter
Cannot get enough of Alice and her adventures? In that case, you might want to add the next installment of the previous movie to your watchlist then. Let us talk about Alice Through the Looking Glass next.
This film is a fantasy adventure. It is about Alice Kingsleigh, her return to Wonderland, and her feat to save the Mad Hatter.
It is like the previous film. It can help you with your visual needs. It is a movie filled with beautiful scenes painted with many lovely colors. It can give you pretty things to look at without overwhelming your senses.
There are many great movies out there. They are not all good choices to watch on shrooms, though.
Finding the right ones could be a feat of some sort. However, we hope our list of the 13 best movies to watch on shrooms was able to help you fill your watchlist.
Is date night coming up? Movie marathon with the gang coming around? Maybe you want to take a break and relax with some feel-good movies?
Well, whatever it is, if it is movies you want, we might be able to help you with that. For whatever event, feel free to go and check out our lists to find the films to fill your film needs!
