But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

If you played a 13 Assassins drinking game (1 drink for a severed limb, 2 drinks for a bow and arrow, 3 for a burning cow) you'd be out cold within a matter of minutes. So rather than risk death by alcohol, here's a less fatal idea: Sing-along-a 13 Assassins.

It's quite simple really. 12 Days of Christmas + bloody samurai violence = fun for all the family. You can even have the music to sing the words to:



So without further ado:

In the film 13 Assassins, Takashi Miike gave to me...











Now that's out the way, we can start work on the 13 Assassins drinking game.



Have 1 drink whenever...

You see a severed limb

Someone dies  

Someone says something about honour


Have 2 drinks whenever...

A bow and arrow is fired

A corpse is mutilated

Evil Lord Naritsugu smiles in a way that suggests he's demented and/or gay


Have 3 drinks whenever...

Someone sets some cows on fire

A booby trap successfully kills someone (known as "doing a Home Alone")


And finally, have a drink every time there is no fighting on screen for a period of more than three minutes (i.e. the whole first half of the film).


If you can follow that drinking game AND play Sing-along-a 13 Assassins without getting the lyrics wrong, you'll end up a big bloody mess by the morning. Which is probably what Takashi Miike would have wanted in the first place. Hardcore.
