Right, so you must all know by now that Arnie is making his big, explosive, swash-buckling return to leading action man status following his brief hiatus to run the government of California or something. To celebrate the release of The Last Stand today, we have of course, prepared our 73rd Friday Drinking Game in honour of the Austrian Terminator. Let the bollocks commence!
Samuel L Jackson’s made nearly 150 films, how the hell did we miss the opportunity to pay tribute to him with a Friday drinking game?! Shameful. Here we are making it up to you alcoholics, and the motherfucker himself (an affectionate term he’d appreciate – you know we’re just joshing with you bro!).
Over 60 million people have watched the stage show of Les Mis, so with its release on the silver screen and 8 Oscar nominations, a lot of people are going to be wanting to celebrate. We’ve helped you out by compiling a drinking game fit to leave you feeling slaughtered at the barricades. Proceed with caution, and drink until you’re so pissed that when Jean Valjean says “Who am I?” you snort, throw up on yourself and hit him.
With Slade, Wizzard, and bloody Bob Geldof dominating the office playlist, and the rivers of mulled wine flowing at previously unprecedented levels, at Best For Film Christmas is definitely upon us. Every family has their own take on the Christmas traditions. Charades or the Queen’s Speech? Presents before or after lunch? Turkey and sprouts at lunchtime or at dinner? But one tradition that we know remains the same in all households is the Christmas film. In honour of this cinematic contribution to the festival of merriment, we have for your delectation: The Christmas Film Drinking Game. ‘Tis the season to be jolly well drunk.
With the teaser trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness finally out, let’s look back at one of the most successful reboots of one of the most successful franchises in history. No one could have predicted how good J.J. Abrams would make Star Trek. For our tribute, let us drink as if we’ve just failed the Kobayashi Maru for the 10th time!
To finish out Walken Week at Best For Film Towers, we’re dedicating an entire drinking game to the man, the myth, the legend that is CHRISTOPHER WALKEN. Whether he’s playing the good, the bad or the ugly, whether he’s psychotic or only slightly less psychotic than normal, there’s a drink to be had in every Christopher Walken movie. Join us for one last walk with Walken, as our gait becomes increasingly staggered and alarming. To Christopher!
With the news that Fox has cancelled the 3D post-conversion of the16 year old Independence Day, we’re celebrating by imitating Randy Quaid. The alcoholic part, not the kamikaze pilot part. Saying that, after this epic drinking game we’ll be down for anything. With a multitude of awful lines, a plethora of pregnant pauses and Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation being molested by a tentacle monster, Independence Day is an awesomely terrible movie that deserves your tribute. Doesn’t anybody have any vodka left!?
With Jack Reacher hitting cinemas this Winter, it’s only right we honor the crazy stunt-monster himself. Say what you like about his personal life, but Tom Cruise is undeniably a fantastic screen presence. Whether you’re watching him mixing drinks (Cocktail) or drinking drinks (The Last Samurai) or demanding drinks (Tropic Thunder) or getting his eyeballs removed (Minority Report), there’s a jolly good reason for everyone to toast our favourite psychopath!
It’s been a big ole week for film news, thanks to Disney’s decision to unburden George Lucas from the rights to Star Wars. The House of Mouse rocked the film world with its $4.2billion buy-out of Lucasfilm, promising that three new Star Wars films would be on the way, with the first one already in production and due some time in 2015. While there’s every possibility that the new films will be every bit as awful as the prequel trilogy, we’re trying to be optimistic about things. In the meantime, why not grab a drink and revisit the original trilogy with us in our Star Wars drinking game!
In honour of the release of The Shining conspiracy flick Room 237 and next week’s extended US cut of the seminal horror, Stanley Kubrick gets his masterpieces soaked in a flood of warm cut-price plonk. It’s Friday, so give your weekend the box-set treatment and annoy some friends with your best HAL 9000 impression: “I’m afraid I can’t let you drink that.” Classic.
