TITANIC 3D: The Drinking Games!
Titanic 3D is in theaters today, and the critics are raving–this time over how director James Cameron has pulled off the definitive post-3D conversion of a classic film. But as you head out to enjoy this revamped epic, don’t forget that you’re all grown up now. That means you can finally enjoy a few Titanic drinking games. Grab your flask or discreetly tip a bottle into your Super-Sized MegaCup from the concession stand, and keep tipping ‘em back as the Titanic tips into icy waters.
“Jack!” vs. “Rose!”
One person chooses Team Jack (preferably with whiskey) and the other Team Rose (wine would be a nice choice). Take a drink every time Rose says (or shouts) “Jack!” or Jack lets loose with a “Rose!” We don’t want to give away the ending, but Team Jack is going to end up taking at least 80 drinks. Better resist the urge to take an extra swig every time Rose calls Jack “Mr. Dawson.” Team Rose will have the advantage in staying sober. Jack only says her name about 50 times.
The Titanic Titanic Checklist
Go from occasional sipping to major swigging while drinking whenever:
• The story goes from past to present, or present to past.
• Somebody hands the diamond to someone else.
• Hockley sneers at the lower classes.
• Rose complains that she’s a lot like a slave.
• Some innocent soul marvels at the unsinkable qualities of the Titanic. (Chug at the word “unsinkable.”)
• The soundtrack swells with the melody of “My Heart Will Go On.”
• Whenever the iceberg takes up at least 30% of the screen.
• Any time there’s a gunshot.
• Any time a flare is shot off.
• Every bad decision that gets people killed.
• Another tragic voyager falls into the icy water. (Chug when that one guy goes “ding!” off the propeller.)
• Jack and/or Rose go underwater. (Chug for the death scene, because it’s sad.)
The Korean Way
Take a seat in the back and enjoy Titanic 3-D in style using the Koreans’ fun trick for mixing beer and sake:
And finally, just have a drink when Kate Winslet bares her Titanic ta-ta’s, circa 1997. That deserves a toast. We’ve waited a long time to see those in 3-D.
