Format: Paperback
Shirley Halperin and Steve Bloom's "Reefer Movie Madness The Ultimate Stoner Film Guide" is a cool compendium to sit around smoking a joint (although I preferred a bowl or a bong) and decide what movie to see that night, or just to read and goof on the movies you've seen.

The book is arranged maybe a little too orderly for the true stoner. It lists movies by categories such as Comedies, Dramas, Sci-Fi Fantasy & Horror, Action and Sports, Animated, Music, and Documentaries, and within the categories alphabetically. In each category you can find just about any movie made within the past 40 years, as it's the author's contention that in the last 40 years pot has come into the movies as a subject, reference, activity, or if it's just cool to watch while high. Some of the movies that caught my eye were "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," "Plan 9 From Outer Space," "THX-1138," "The Falcon and the Snowman," "Dude, Where's My Car," "Fame," "The Banger Sisters," "The Doors" (only a 3.5 marijuana leaf rating, and for some reason in the drama section and not music).

Each film has a smart and concise synopsis of each film and remarkably enough gives the reader a good sense of the movie. As I was reading the synopsis of the movies I was remembering each movie and favorite scenes mentioned in the synopsis. The guide offers ratings on the 5 marijuana leaf scale, icons to denote whether the movie in question has a pot reference, nudity, cocaine, alcohol, bongs and a couple of others. Next to each movie is a little quote of stoner interest from the movie.

Interspersed throughout the book is a lot of goodies for the readers, including movie picks of such luminaries as Snoop Dogg, Jason Mraz, Margaret Cho, Wayne Coyne, Ray Manzarek, and Melissa Ethridge.

Have you ever been discussing a movie you have yet to see with someone who suddenly blurts out the surprise ending? Remember the frustration you felt knowing the movie had just been ruined for you? If you read this book you had better ready yourself to feel that same frustration, over and over and over again. The authors are apparently incapable of describing a movie plot in the general sense and instead walk the reader step by step through the movie, from beginning to end, and in the process give away each major plot twist, mystery, and finally, the ending. This is no exaggeration, this happens constantly. I just find it incredible that this book could be written by two people, edited and reviewed in the publishing process, and no one has a thought like, "Gee, maybe we shouldn't tell he reader who the killer is." When reading this book, if I come across a movie I haven't seen, I have to stop myself about two-thirds of the way into the review because I can sense the authors are about to give up too much once again.

This book is "The Ultimate" guide to movies for stoners. What a great reference and a fun and well thought out read. If you like watching movies baked, and most of us do, this book is a perfect companion.
