Moonwolves Presents Drunken Cinema: Number 1- The Pit
Huzzah! Welcome to the first Drunken Cinema.
This is how it works, periodically we will select a film of dubious artistic quality, and get completely and utterly shitfaced while watching it, commenting as we do so. Think MST3K but with less Americans, worse films, and more alcohol.
First up, is the underrated (ha!) Early 80’s classic: The Pit.
I reviewed this absolutely ages ago here (quite spoilery, consider yourselves warned) and really quite enjoyed it. It is a fundamentally terrible film, sure, but it does have a lot of charm, killer teddy bears and an autistic kid.
So, with no further ado, let the boozing commnence.
Film starts at 9PM.
Bring your own liver.
Christ I feel ill. Anyway, I’ve got to rate this film now, and in the spirit of good fun, I’ll try to do it honestly.
The Pit is a fundamentally terrible film that is hilarious in its utter wrongness. I originally gave it some Changs (because I did quite enjoy it), whereas on second viewing without weed it is much worse and much crazier. It’s clearly not an Orangutan of Doom candidate, because it’s fucking loopy so it’s time to unveil the new rating for batshit insanity on screen: The Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez of Med Skipping Lunacy!!! To be used for films that are completely insane:
Gotta love that.
Next time up is the even crazier but vastly more entertaining Lifeforce. I dunno when though.
