151 Proof Movies: Street Fighter: The Movie: The Drinking Game
Two years can just fly by at times. It was two years ago this weekend, that we started the tradition known as 151 Proof Movies here on the site. A tradition, which is fairly weekly, sees us take a movie (not always bad, but most of the time) and try to enjoy it under the power of alcohol.
The original idea, was the brain-child of myself and a friend. You can check out a bit of the back story here. The gist of it though was I didn’t want to ever watch Street Fighter: The Movie so we came up with a compromise. If the movie was horrible, at least I would have gotten a buzz out of it. A silly little game has turned into a 2 year commitment, it’s funny how life works sometimes.
In honor of two years, and the movie that really started this whole she-bang. We’re going to watch Street Fighter: The Movie again this week. For your purposes, I am going to reprint the rules below. It is still my favorite format, but wasn’t one that was easy to maintain for a lot of our movies, which is why we dropped it sadly.
Let’s get to the rule book!
1)Take a drink, every time Bison or Bisonopolis is mentioned.
We can’t begrudge a person for wanting to name something after themselves. Hell if I was an evil dictator I would name a city or two after me, but how many times must it be uttered in a movie? Only you and your liver will know.
2)Take a drink, every time the word “home” is uttered
Home is where your hat is, and where the booze hits your stomach. Let’s just hope the lead doesn’t give a speech about going home during the movie. YINKS.
3)Take a drink, every time someone flexes/poses
Nothing is better than whooping someone’s arse. The only thing that could make the moment sweeter would be to stop and pose for the camera while…
4)Take a drink, every time someone gives a cheesy line/pun
Its the staple of a bad movie (ironically enough also the staple of a lot of good movies), but there will puns upon puns so keep your glasses filled.
5)Take a shot, for special moves
This is a movie based off of a video game so expect some magical elements to surface, and when you see one, warm up your shot glass because its going down!
6) The devil rule, try and finish a beer in the time it takes Guile and Bison to exchange insults/quips
So there you have it ladies and gentlemen, our Street Fighter drinking rules. We always encourage folks to follow along on Twitter with hashtag #151PM, but this week we’re also REALLY encouraging people to check out the movie along with us. It will be a fun ride, I can guarantee that!
