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.
If you don’t already have a drink in your hand you fail at life, there’s never an excuse to be sober on a Friday and we’ve devised this drinking game so you never need one. In honour of last week’s release of Walter Salles’ On The Road we bring you the best drinking game based on Road Trips you’re likely to find this side of happy hour. Put your foot down and chug it!
It’s mid-October, so obviously the world is already decked out in Christmas bullshit and seasonal food that goes out of date in November. Christmas coming early is obviously ridiculous, but the real tragedy behind it is that Hallowe’en – king of all the fatuous seasonal holidays – gets left behind, struggling to be heard under the mountains of chocolate Santa Claus’ and reams of low-quality, pound-land wrapping paper. Well bollocks to that! Stick two-fingers up to Christmas and get terrifyingly drunk with our Classic Horror Movies Drinking Game!
Everyone’s favourite stealth Irishman is back, shooting even more disenfranchised Albanians in the statistically inevitable Taken 2. But why would you subject yourself to any of Liam Neeson’s new films (except The Grey) without a really massive drink? Well, now you don’t need to! CAUTION: do not attempt to ski after playing this drinking game.
Everyone loves a time-travel movie. Everyone. It’s the ultimate dream; to be able to flit back through time and tell your younger self to stop after the sixth Jägerbomb; to flit forward in time and find out the lottery numbers; to visit the dinosaurs (ill-advised) or our inevitably dystopian future (iller-advised). Of course, it’s all fantasy, and the fact that it’s impossible causes all sorts of consternation among nerds, who try and puzzle the various internal logics of such films until the wee small hours. Time-travel movies are great; but they’re also bloody confusing.
After a long and challenging week it’s finally Friday. The weekend is nigh and it’s the perfect time to indulge in a good old drinking game. But this is not just any old drinking game. No. For this drinking game you’ll need to be as unflappable and calm as James Bond, because if not there’s a chance this could get a little out of hand.
It’s Friday. The Olympics are over, summer is on the way out, and you’re dreading winter and its impending dark mornings, dark evenings and long, long working days sandwiched between them. What better way to make yourself feel better than by getting drunk and looking at someone who definitely, definitely has it worse than you.
Ladies and gentlemen; the Adam Sandler drinking game.
This Wednesday heralded the release of the long awaited Three Stooges movie. In honour of this disgustingly momentous occasion we invite you to join us all in a round of slapstick-themed drinks. So grab the nearest bottle of vodka, assemble your Farrelly Brothers and your Charlie Chaplins and hit someone in the head with a plank of wood. It’s time to get seriously brain damaged.
Here at Best For Film we never need an excuse to get a little bit merry but perhaps you more sensible people at home do. Now that all of the Olympic madness is over and even the bloody Bourne Legacy has come out in cinemas you need something to fill those dark, gaping voids in your life. And what better to fill them with than some sweet alcomohol? Grab your guns and shot glasses treasure seekers! It’s time to revisit Hamunaptra and get squiffy.
So guess what comes out on Monday? It’s only the bloody Bourne Legacy! Smash smash punch punch ride that motorbike keep squealing Rachel Weisz – Gosh we’re excited. So excited we’re going to spend this evening in the throes of a Bourneathlon. Writer Tony Gilroy says of the upcoming ‘wider conspiracy’ film that “everyone who got into [the first three] will be rewarded for paying attention”. Sounds like a challenge, no point going on Monday unless you’ve watched all three back to back and given your attention span/liver a real work out.
