151 Proof Movies: The Action Movie
Excitement and mystery is part of its history, as is the secret of explosions!
Yes, the action movies. One of Hollywood’s oldest and perhaps most novel genres. The action movie encompasses a broad range of movies, but there does seem to be some elements that carry over throughout the bulk of them. While we tend to do drinking rules on a per movie basis, we also wanted to give fans a taste of a wider set of rules.
So these are action rules for action movies and some power drinking! To the big board.
- The Big Bang Theory– What’s an action movie without some explosion? And what’s a drinking game without a staple? So every time there’s an explosion take a drink.
- Running Your Yap– An explosion has just taken place, the hero stands tall, and utters those words. You don’t know exactly what they are, but you’ll know it when you hear it. Take a drink whenever a one-liner is uttered. Take 2 for a pun!
- Bit Players- Every action movie has its share of non-essential characters, let’s meet em, take a drink when the sidekick annoys you, take a drink when the hero disobeys order and gets yelled at by authority figure, take a drink when hero’s loved one (or love interest) is kidnap and needs to be rescued, take a drink when they are rescued!
- Twisted Metal– Put pedal to the metal, and get a move on it. Take a drink for every car that is wrecked, flipped or ran off the road during a chase scene. Take a drink for any jumps/stunts during a chase.
These are just the basic rules for an Action Movie, and hopefully can be used effectively in most. As always, we will test these rules out and tell you how it goes! And of course when needed, we will cater specific rules to a film/franchise as we see fit.
Enjoy and happy drinking!
