I usually dont watch anything during the peak period of the trip.
I have however found that it can sometimes help when trips become uncomfortable or last too long.
Having something to focus on seems to have a calming effect.
When the taken dosis was too high this does not work. The movie will make no sense whatsoever, and sometimes even refuse to stay on the screen and will only focus your attention on the fact your tripping too hard.
I always almost 'suffer' from post trip insomnia (especially on acid) and can really enjoy a decent movie, series or documentary whilst filling the belly with scrumptious foodstuffs. Raeding a nice book is also a recommendation, the story really comes alive.
But like I said, during the peak I am usually just sprawled on a matrass in a darkened room.

I generally do not watch TV or movies on mushrooms. Part of the experience of taking mushrooms is the ability to escape reality. TV, especially, and movies are reality. They remind you of everyday life. When I personally take mushrooms, I completely isolate myself from anything that could remind me of my everyday life. It's not that life sucks, I just want to see where mushrooms can take me spiritually. The only movie I would probably recommend would be The Wizard of Oz synchronized with Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. It's not too hard to concentrate on the movie with a low dosage, but when you take a high dosage, you either do two things. You become a part of the movie or you can't concentrate on the film at all. My favorite part is when the song "Money" starts and all the Munchkins start to pour out. Amazing movie on mushrooms, if you're able to concentrate and focus. To sum it up, mushrooms are a psychedelic drug used to escape reality and see where your mind can go. Watching TV doesn't create new ideas, thoughts, or visions. If you want to create your reality, eat the mushrooms, and stick to music in the background.
