So I’m usually late to all of the really hot trends. This is no different. Once I discovered the interconnectedness of the Marvel Cinematic Universe my OCD brain exploded and I immediately wanted to start meticulously watching them in chronological order. Also, I’ve heard Netflix will lose rights to the films within the year and we won’t access on that platform soon, so I best get moving.
Since I’m already obsessively engaged, I might as well go whole hog and record all of the drinking and drinks in the movies and TV episodes…in order. It’s gotta be done sooo….
Well, I have to say it. I was wrong. You would think secret agents dealing with crazy science fiction circumstances where reality bends at a moment’s notice wouldn’t want to incapacitate themselves with drink or have time for that kind of habit, but episode two of Agents of SHIELD proved that they will booze it […]
First episode of Agents of SHIELD I felt set up the show nicely. The team was assembled. We see that it’s non-traditional circumstances and it’s a bunch of highly skilled misfits. Coulson is back from the dead and there’s some big secret in that regard and the main threat is a callback from the super […]
This is the last of the Marvel One Shots I know of, definitively taking place after Iron Man 3 and giving some credence to the Ten Rings demanding some control over their reputation. We see Trevor Slattery, Aldrich Killian’s actor portraying the Mandarin, and actually we see Justin Hammer from Iron Man 2 in a […]
Nothing demonstrates Tony Stark’s evolution of his character more than this film so far. He drinks so much in 1 and 2 and he’s the only one drinking in the first Avengers movie, I expected this would be more of the same. But we learn that his experience fighting the Chitauri has left some psychological […]
I really dig these video shorts Marvel produced. They are little bridges to the next big story that fills in the gaps. This One Shot makes the alien invasion of New York from the Avengers a realistic event with understandable consequences. It’s essentially a “what if” story, as is most science fiction, demonstrating the impact […]
Episode 3 of AoS was another good one with three booze items each one used as a specific tool in the plot A free market mining tycoon Quinn kidnaps a SHIELD physicist, Hall, to work with a new super powerful element. In order to smooth relations and develop a cooperative relationship Quinn shares what I […]
So this is the first film where we get to see the heroes all together. Frankly, as long as Tony Stark is part of it, I expect there to be more drinking. And I wasn’t entirely wrong. All of the drinking and references to drinking revolved around Tony Stark except for one The first time […]
This short used a lot of clips from The Incredible Hulk including the bar scene at the end, so since I already recorded those, I’m not including them here. However, Phil Coulson and Jasper Sitwell as they are discussing what occurred between General Ross and Tony Stark, they do reference the bar A lot is […]
I was so happy to learn of the Marvel One Shots, little cool vignettes that set up the timeline beautifully. This one is about Agent Phil Coulson in action. We’ve already met him in Iron Man, now we get to know more about him without the Tony Stark’s shining star always nearby. Booze Tally: Nothing […]
I didn’t know what to expect here. Gods drinking? You wouldn’t think so, however, it is well known that part of Norse heaven is that you spend all your time playing chess, wrastling, and drinking. So there could have been a lot of wine and ale consumption, but I wasn’t sure if it would be […]
