This is also a movie

Anyone seen it?

It's a comedy take on an old movie the government released to stop people from smoking cannabis waaay back in the 40's.

It was made into a cult comedy movie in the 70's and is now a cult classic.

Very funny stuff.

Might be famous, I'm not big on these actors though. But back in the 1970's they may have been big.

It was the propaganda film used to outlaw marijuana. The movie was a prejudicial piece of garbage that made it seem like smoking marijuana turned anyone into a crazed killer that would lose their mind. Made everyone scared enough to support laws against marijuana. The government at the time was just looking to scapegoat anything they could so they would have a reason to ask for gov. money for fed. law enforcement.

And so was A Slip of the Tongue, The Naked City, The Set Up, etc. Many of the cases were named after movies. I was planning on actually watching all fifty movies that were featured in this game(the Golden Reels).

Like he said, a bunch of the case names were taken from old Noir films. I personally don't care for Reefer Madness at all (the movie).

Not all at once. Just whenever I could get around to it. I have Netflix and I'm sure there are at least a few of these on there. It's not one of those things I'm dying to do, just figured they were worth watching since they were mentioned.

I think they all are... I'm not going to look all 50 reels and all of the cases up. But, I took a class in Noire and all of the reels at least sounded like 40's noire films. Key Largo, Sunset BLVD, etc.

Reefer Madness was also remade a couple years ago. With Kristen Bell. It was not worth a remake...

Some of the movies would be worth a watch, Nothing beats a black and white classic.
Just don't think because they were mentioned they are all good, Because they won't be.


I even played most of L.A Noire with the B&W option enabled.

Do you even know what trolling is? I just read all of Soldier Boy's posts in this thread and there isn't an ounce of trolling.

If you don't like something in my post or in my signature, report it and a mod or admin will take a look and see if it deserves deletion. In the meantime, you can put me on ignore and not have to worry about my 'hate' for a game that I don't like. I'm not forcing my opinion down on anyone, and there are plenty of options you can take in order to not read anyone else's opinions....

I figured they were all the titles but didn't feel like looking it up. Do you know if the cases have any relation to the film except for just the title? Plot similarities or something of that effect?

I've never seen the comedy remake, but I have the propaganda film on DVD. It's pretty funny, but also somewhat concerning that they could make that kind of crap and have people take them seriously...

And what exactly is difficult about watching 50 movies? It's about as hard as playing 50 video games: not hard at all, as long as you don't do something senseless like watching them all in a row with no breaks.

Yeah. A lot of cases from LA Noire are either exact movie titles or references. And as mentioned the film reel collectibles are all real movies. Really made me smile to see some cult classics in there.

Though I don't think it is that well known, more of a cult film. I could be wrong though...

I thought Reefer Madness (the movie) was a bit boring. Good for a few laughs, but not as good as I thought it would be after everybody built it up so much. I just watched The Naked City on Netflix streaming and the plot is exactly the same as in the game. I've also seen a few of the films named in the golden reels, mostly the Bogart ones and M, which was pretty enjoyable.
