Metropolis Drinking Game
So. You’ve decided to take the plunge and watch the ridiculous and baffling classic movie Metropolis. Want a more fun, lively experience? Take my advice and turn it into a drinking game using the following guidelines my friend and I came up with while giggling at the pure hilarity of it all:
- Every time Maria gropes her own tit, take a drink.
- Every time Evil Robot Maria winks directly into the camera, take a drink.
- Every time there is an intensely homoerotic scene where the characters are |this close| to kissing, take a drink.
- Every time a character raises one eyebrow with an amount of grace most modern actors can’t pull off, take a drink.
- And finally, every time the movie mentions a mediator, take a drink.
Follow these guidelines, and trust me, the two and half odd hours of silent film awesomeness, hilarity, and bizarre plot will just fly right by.
