Don't Watch Alone: Fantastic Four and Hercules in New York

Drink responsibly and stop when you begin to feel sick.

Welcome to the weekend! We've got two spectacular films for you that are set in New York City. In light of the latest casting news our first film is the 94' version of Fantastic Four. For Saturday night, I've chosen for you Arnold Schwarzenegger's first film Hercules in New York.

Roger Corman's Fantastic Four

If the latest casting news concerning The Fantastic Four didn't drive you to drink then, this film just might. This film was shot in 21 days for one million dollars in order to preserve the film rights. So, it was never meant to be a great movie or a big movie; just a movie with the Fantastic Four in it.  So, there you hand it and now, it's clobberin' time.

Drink when:

  • The professor gets too excited.
  • "My statue!"
  • When someone uses a bad accent.
  • Ever the special effects are less than convincing.
  • Someone yells "Johnny!"
  • Each of the Fantastic Four reveal their powers.
  • When the members of FF look like agents of AIM

  • "It's clobberin' time!"

  • Anyone says The Fantastic Four

Drink during the entire:

  • Electrocution scene

  • Interview scene.

Finish your drink when:

  • Johnny says "Holy Freud, Batman!"
  • When the green laser anally probes Johnny.

Hercules in New York

I just happened to find this film at my local drug store in the bargain bin for two bucks. And that's where it deserves to stay. Unless, you're up for a fun time. What make's this flick so great is it's hokey as hell without Arnie. But, the icing on the cake is Arnie himself. Since, he doesn't have a grip on the whole acting thing. Are you ready to get pumped up?

Drink when:

  • You can't understand what Arnie is saying.
  • Hercules says his own name.
  • Arnie Flexes.
  • You see the John Candy look a like.
  • He refers to vehicles as chariots.
  • Hercules takes off his shirt.

  • He flips the taxi.
  • A wrestling arranger says "Yeah."

Drink during the entire:

  • Opening voice over.
  • Bear fight scene.

Chug a beer:

  • During the chariot chase scene.

Finish your drink for:

  • Hasidic Zeus.

Well that's it for now. Remember if you start to feel sick it's time to stop.  We'll see you Monday for the Weekend Roundup and next Friday for Fandom Friday.  Follow us on twitter @PU_FilmBlog for all of the articles in between.
