Avatar Drinking Game

Posted by LiveFor on December 18, 2009

THR put together this drinking game for when you go and see James Cameron’s Avatar:

1) Take a shot every time you see a visual or verbal reference to a previous Cameron film (especially “Aliens”).

2) Take a shot every time you see a machine or action scenario that echoes and then obliterates the creations of George Lucas in any of the six “Star Wars” films.

3) Text O’Reilly, Beck and Hannity every time there’s a blatant, gleeful backhand thrown at fanatical militarism, craven corporatism or historically tragic American imperialism.

4) Take a shot each time you get a whiff of the racial/ethnic/gender analogies playing out in the storyline and character associations. (In all likelihood, Cameron didn’t intend these, but it sure is fun to theorize anyway.)

5) Take a shot/sip whenever you feel yourself watching a giant infomercial for conservation and environmentalism. (Bonus chaser if your mind flashes to the Indian-shedding-a-tear ad from the Seventies.)

Anyone have any more?

    Take a shot everytime you see a blue character, if you are still awake when the credits roll, you win!

    Take a shot every time you see some kind of tech that can possibly be made and used in real life some time in the future.
    (like breathing water in Abyss, powerloaders in Aliens aso.)

    Take a shot every time when you hear a piece of music in the movie and think “that is sooo James Horner”
    (because you know, it is James Horner and, well.. yeah)
