what’s the best mix of movies and alcohol?

Sideways Paul Giamatti Thomas Haden Church

So this happened on Twitter recently:


And there are the beginnings of the Question for this week. To be fair to those who don’t feel the need to watch movies completely roaring drunk, I’ll expand it a little:

What’s the best mix of movies and alcohol? Do you enjoy certain crappy movies more if you’re drunk? Does a bottle of wine or a couple of beers make certain good movies more enjoyable? And have you ever regretted a movie the morning after?

This will probably apply to at-home movie viewing for most of you. Though there are places such as the Alamo Drafthouse — or many critics screenings in London — where alcohol can be part of a cinema experience.


(If you have a suggestion for a Question, feel free to email me.)
