Movies + Drinking Games Thread

RehabRehab Registered User regular
edited October 2009 in Social Entropy++
So I just got done watching Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End, with a couple friends, in a fashion in which drinking was involved. The friend that proposed that we watch the movie came into my apartment with the idea that we watch one of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies whilst drinking rum. I concurred that this was a fine idea and so as the other person that I invited over got here, we set off for more liqueur and one of the movies of said trilogy. We were successful in our mission, and so there was a sort of correlation to the drinks that were had and the movie that we watched from the beginning of the night, which made it feel all the more significant. Only not really, since it was just an excuse to drink and this was something that we were set upon doing regardless. But hey, might as well have something to do while you drink (playing Mario Party with set rules was already kind of exhausted by this point).

Anyway, here were the rules that we set forth:

1) Whenever this bitch uses a bad accent (every time), you have to drink.

2) On every instance when the word "rum" is brought up, you have to drink.

3) Anytime that the word "parlay" is spoken by someone, you have to drink.

4) Anything that is agreeably awesome happens onscreen, you have to drink.

Resolution: I end the game with quite a strong buzz going, my friend that suggested the game falls asleep with drink in hand, and the other friend that I invited over takes off early as she had a bit of a migraine. In this instance, she was the smart one as she drank at a bar earlier and chose not to participate. Of course she reminded us of instances when we had to drink during the movie though, which was good of her (I guess?).

All said and done, it was a pretty good time. The movie was more tolerable under said circumstances then when I initially saw it in theaters too. Not that the movie is horrible or anything, but it left a bad taste in my mouth in comparison to the first two movies, which I thought were pretty great upon seeing originally.


Some other movie and drinking game combinations:

(most infamous first)

Shawn of the Dead

shawnofthedead.jpg

1) Anytime there is a call back (a scene that is reminiscent of something that happened earlier in the movie), you have to drink.

2) Whenever someone in the movie drinks, you have to drink.

3) On any instance where a characters says "you've got red on you," you have to drink.

Inadvisable dangerous rule: Anytime someone says something with a British accent, you have to drink.

I actually was not a participant in this game when I witnessed it, as I just didn't feel like drinking, but many drinks were had upon those who were playing the game (to say the least).

Van Helsing

260pxvanhelsingposter.jpg

1) Anytime that you see a crash of lightning during a scene, you have to drink.

2) Whenever Kate Beckinsale's character turns around to leave, but Van Helsing turns her back toward him to kiss her, you have to drink.

3) Some stupid new abomination of a monster appears onscreen, you have to drink.

Inadvisable dangerous rule: During any instance in which a bad accent is heard, you have to drink.

I watched this movie for the first time with a cousin of mine and while neither of us were drinking, we saw a fine opportunity for a drinking game to be had with this movie as we watched it and jokingly came up with rules as we went along. Also, I made up the third rule just now, but given the movie in question it would undoubtedly result in at least a few drinks taken.

Passion of the Christ

passion20of20christ20po.jpg

First off, this is a drinking game that has to be played with wine to be done correctly. No exceptions.

1) Anytime pain is inflicted upon Christ, you have to take a sip of wine.

Inadvisable dangerous rule: Anytime pain is inflicted upon Christ, you have to take a sip of wine.

The friend that suggested the Pirates of the Caribbean and rum game created this. I have never experienced the movie in said fashion or viewed the movie to begin with myself.


So SE, what are some drinking game you have created to go along with movies?

Any humorous stories that you would like to share with the rest of the class?

    Noted, thank you for the clarification Hash Pipe.

    I just didn't know the correct term for such an instance so I used that.

    Edit: Haha, one of the few example under "Film" that were given with the link you posted:

    In Pirates Of The Carribean At World's End, when the Pirate's Code is brought out, the first thing Captain Jack Sparrow looks up is whether the rule of parlay (a running gag throughout the films) exists. It does.

    In highschool there were a few who would play with Boondock Saints, and only one rule - a drink for every "fuck" said by a character.

    I think the longest any game lasted was an hour before people got sick of drinking every few seconds.

    The IMDB Drinking Game, as created and practised by my peers:

    1) Pick a movie. Preferably one that not only is more enjoyable drunk, practically requires it.

    2) Go on IMDB. Examine the keywords list.

    3) Pick a handful of these keywords each. The more absurd the better, in my experience. Not everyone's list need be identical, but a certain amount of commonality is encouraged.

    4) Attend/Rent said movie. Imbibe whenever selected keywords occur.

    5) Swap stories about your experience of the movie and which keywords were particularly or unexpectedly devastating.


    Examples:
    Transformers possible list: Underwear, Secret Government Organization, Wilhelm Scream, Sole Black Character Dies Cliche, Masturbation Reference

    Shoot 'Em Up possible list: Artificial Insemination, Killed With Carrot, Nunsploitation, Bare Breasts


    Pros:
    Creates drinking rules for movies on a universal scale.
    Can create drinking games for movies as yet unseen. Indeed, this is the usual way we play.

    Cons:
    see pros.

    That is an excellent post Fishman.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Shoot 'Em Up despite some of the naysayers who reviewed it. Also, I am determined to see all of Boondock Saints sometime as I've only seen a few scenes from the movie. I really liked what I saw though.

    Anybody ever read Seanbaby's old site about the Superfriends?
    RECAP:
    Basics:
    1. "Space"
    2. "Super"
    3. "Bat-Something", "Vision," "Telepathy," and "Magic Lasso."
    4. "Great Something!"
    5. Foreign Language
    6. "I'VE GOT TO..."
    7. Just one chance!

    Secondary:
    1. Wonder Twins Activate/Deactivate
    2. Star scene transitions

    Essentially, you're listening for characters to use the above words, with a few being specific to characters. My old roommate and I sat through one god damn 20-minute episode and the drink count was in the 60-80 range. Robin, we soon realized, would be a powerful danger to our livers. In a world where robotic ice spiders are an utterly forgettable encounter, Robin is surprised by everything and absolutely must shout about it.

    the point is that the plan was to sit around with your friends and drink while doing nothing in particular.

    maybe playing poker

    maybe watching movies or sports or playing computer games

    this is just another thing to do

    and depending on the game can be tons of fun.
