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!
