Damn man, Platoon is intense

  1. Ok, I'm in a very light mood right now cuz I'm pretty high. Anyway, so I was just watching the "highs" scene in the classic Vietnam film "Platoon" where Charlie Sheen and Willem Defoe shotgun and dance and have fun, etc. And being high, I realized that Oliver Stone, the director, must have really known alot about the kind of stoners that would watch that scene because right after that he brings you down with a real boom with the scenes following in which the squad burns the Vietnamese village. It really really brings you down fast if you're high and watching that because it's such a stark contrast from the extremely stoney scene before, you know what I mean?
  2. they actually got high for the high scene. no acting required. :D
  3. yeh, but willem defoe said they had come down by the time the scene actually got started and he claims they were all super tired by the time the scene got shot. lol, that sucks, i totally would have loved to kick it on set high as a viet nam soldier, would have been nice I think.
