I have now actually done this.

:iconspidersplz::iconsaysplz:Oh, Good GOD Man, that's been known to KILL people!
1 Shot for the story taking place in Maine (might as well just take this one as the DVD is loading up)
1 Shot for the Monster's origins never being explained (at least in the movies)
1 Shot for the 1-Dimensional Bully with no redeeming values
1 Shot for the same Bully characters seeing Violence & Murder as the only answer
1 Shot for Rednecks
1 Shot for Abusive Assholes
1 Shot for Alcoholics (sadly, the last 3 are often separate, even if they're all rolled into one)
1 Shot for a disappointing or anti-climactic payoff at the end (A SPIDER?!)
1 Shot for the bland or disappointing ending (so his wife's fine. Whoopdeedoo)

And I even took the liberty to throw in my own shots.

1 Shot for "The Magic Negro" (King may have invented this one and it sure gave Morgan Freeman a Career)
1 Shot for the knitted friendships formed by the protagonists
1 Shot if the story ties in to The Dark Tower series (A Toast to The Turtle!)
1 Shot for something that's supposed to be scary, but just ends up stupid or funny (the dog)
1 Shot for a Crappy, Unfaithful or Disappointing Television rendition of an otherwise good King story (I think only 3 films may be exempt from this rule, and IT isn't one of them, even if it is fun!)
2 Shots "Just for the Hell of It" during the beloved Library Scene (WA-HA!)
And 1 final shot just in case we may have forgotten anything!  

Thankfully, this movie was so long, I had time to recover in between shots, especially later in the movie, so I only really got half-drunk.

And compared to how I was a year ago, that's one hell of an improvement!  This time, I was laughing my ass off and having fun!

I think one of the earliest examples of the Magical Negro can be seen in Song of the South, which came out in 1946 (before King's time). I recommend you watch it, it's so racist that it actually transcends offensiveness.

Don't know if that one's as good for the drinking game since it's an anthology. And the last one with the little monster is made for the movie...but then again, that little monster is definitely worth at least one or two shots, heh. Hell, throw in a shot for Drew Barrymore!

But Cat's Eye was always fun for me. And get ready for the biggest ASSHOLE of a pigeon you've ever seen! I think the pigeon might be my favorite character, hee-hee-hee!

sbkMulletMan Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2011
Oh god, I don't think I have the energy (or the booze money) for that one.

Though that's one of the exempt films for the disappointing rendition shot. The Mist was faithful, AND it had a good ending that actually improved upon the book, so that's actually 2 less shots right there.

That one (and Carrie) might be a contender for taking a shot for the attack on religion that was Overruled in IT (and rightfully so, that whole scene wasn't even in the book and was just thrown in there for very little reason, so no Shot there!)

And CRAP, I only just now remembered! I watched The Shining not too long ago and completely forgot about the drinking game! That one deserves two shots for the unfaithful rendition rule from what I heard.

Oh, and the Shining's ending was COMPLETELY different in the book...black guy didn't even die. I don't know which was better, but they were definitely not the same.

MulletMan, thanks for writing down the drinking game, I was too lazy to re-watch the video.

Btw, there are TWO versions of The Shining. The first one is the famous Kubrick version which King hated since it went so far away from the book. Afterwards, he made a mini-series of The Shining which is actually pretty good too. It may not be as artistically awesome as Kubrick's version, but I think the story is waaay better (it's closer to the book and it does build up Jack Torrance's madness in a good pace, unlike Kubrick's version where he pretty much goes crazy after two minutes).

sbkMulletMan Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011
That reminds me, I forgot to add my own shot for "anything bad happening to The Black Guy". Even if it's different in the shining, I'm often seeing a theme in many of the books where something especially bad happens to "The Black Guy". It's as if being black is a spotlight or target early on, and eventually something's going to hit that target.

And it always seems to have a tiny bit more emphasis on The Black Guy than anyone else.

I think we will have to agree to disagree on the ending of the Mist. I thought the book's ending was right in leaving things undecided.
Reply
:iconsbkmulletman:
sbkMulletMan Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011
well for a movie the ending worked better. If they had used the exact same ending for the movie that was used in the book, it would have left everyone wanting more and being pissed off. Wouldn't have stood out and it would have been especially unsurprising to anyone who read the book.

The movie's ending still could have been less "final" though. Some mystery to keep the wonder going, but for a movie it worked better. If the movie's ending were in the book, it would have especially have been crap.

I...DON'T...KNOW!

I woke up an hour early between 6 and 7am, which I used to head to Barnes & Noble an hour before class to pick up The Stand, I had an exceptionally exhausting exercise, came home well over an hour later (long bus ride), seemed to have too much energy to sleep, and just went ahead and had a little coffee anyway, then before 7pm I got the booze for the movie, and 4 hours later (a good hour of the movie was me pausing it for breaks or to take a shot), I don't know HOW I'm still up!

My Alcohol & Energy hit a major crash about 3 hours ago, and yet here I still am.

...well, I guess there's no escaping It.
