Justin Roiland is the master of adding pointless and unique stuff in his work, which makes it pretty funny because of its sheer randomness. One of these random things is his decision to add a 95-minute film inside a game.
This feature is available from the game’s early stages after a couple of bounties by simply visiting your house. You can sit next to Gene and watch the entire 90-minute film on the in-game TV.
All you have to do is face your character on the TV screen and watch the movie along with Gene, who will often give commentary and pass jokes during the movie.
There are two other movies that you can watch with Gene in the later stages of the game.
In contrast, only one movie is available in the Theater. For that, you will have to buy the theater’s Warp Disc from Blorto.
I have played this game for tens of hours, thanks to its comedic nature and sheer randomness. While exploring the game and enjoying the commentary, I was surprised to know High on Life also features a few full-length movies. Here is how you can watch these movies in the game.

A unique feature of the game, which has surprised everyone, is that you can watch entire films inside the game. The creators got licenses for four films, all released before the 2000s. These films can be watched alongside another character named Gene.
Tammy And The T-Rex In High On Life
Follow my steps below to watch this film in the game:
Tammy and the T-Rex is the first movie the players can watch with Gene, as it is available in the early stages of the game.
After you have started the quest Lizzie Returns, visit your house and walk up into the lounge. You will see ads being played on the TV.
In addition to that, you will see the option to sit on the couch next to Gene. Get comfortable and relax on the couch since it will be a 95-minute film, including ads.
Initially, Human TV will be playing on the screen with a host talking about the newly discovered humans and their lifestyles. He introduces the film Tammy and the T-Rex as “one of the most famous movies of all time on earth.”
The screen then fades into black, and the movie begins. Your character should keep the face turned in the direction of the TV. However, this may not be the best way to watch a movie since the TV screen covers just a portion of your screen.
Other Movies You Can Watch
The other movies that I found and enjoyed during my time in the game are:
Vampire Hookers: It is the second available after Tammy and the T-Rex and, personally, my favorite one. This 88-minute comedy horror film is about an aging evil vampire who has recruited three young and beautiful women. He sends these women to lure men into his house.
Blood Harvest: Blood Harvest is the third film that Gene will be watching on TV. It’s a horror/slasher movie with the plot revolving around a girl who returns to her home in a rural area. Upon returning, she finds her house wrecked and her parents missing. A clown is then introduced as the only person who seems to like her.
Demon Wind: You may get used to having Gene’s company while watching these films, but unfortunately, this film cannot be watched with Gene. Waiting at home for this movie to get played isn’t the best thing to do since this movie can only be watched at the Theater.
Let me tell you how you can do that:
The first step is to buy the Movie Theatre Warp Disc from Blorto, located in Blim City. Navigate through the menu below and buy the Warp Disc using Warp Crystals.
Go to the house and go up to the Bounty 5000.
Navigate to the second tab, which is portals.
You want to select “Zephyr Paradise” and click on the “Upper Valley” option.
After being teleported to the desired location, turn left and go up the hill.
You will see an area that you can interact with.
Interact with the object, select the Movie Theatre Warp Disk, and confirm your selection.
By doing this, you will get a giant theatre teleported in front of you. Proceed towards the cinema and sit down in any seat you like.
The chaotic jokes and funny comments make this game easily the best release of this year so far for me. Top it with the ability to watch entire movies, which is a weirdly unique feature of this game that hasn’t been done before. These old movies would have been left to catch dust if it wasn’t for this game.
On the other hand, it may be an annoying feature to some movie enthusiasts, who would rather watch it on full screen. Personally, I have grown fond of watching the film with Gene and don’t mind watching it on an in-game TV screen. What are your thoughts about it?
