*For your assistance, the Summer Movie Bingo 2013 Glossary*
Post-Credits Teaser / Post-Credits Teaser Featuring Samuel L. Jackson – A fun marketing ploy within major franchises, teasing the next film in the series.
A woman has more than 2 minutes of kick-bootiness – This is in line with the Bechdel test.
Vehicle / Car Chase (Preferrably with shiny Cars) – A common trope of summer movies. A certain franchise will have a lot of this.
SPACESHIPS! – are as cool as bow ties
Worth attending a midnight showing – Midnight showings consist of endless fans coming together, dressing up, and having the pleasure of seeing a movie together.
Mechanical Robot Armor – Sometimes these are used to turn Billionaires into superheros, other times they are used against giant screen-filling villains.
Passes Bechdel Test – 1.
- It has to have at least two women in it, 2
who talk to each other, 3.
- about something besides a man
Screen-Filling Monster / Villain – Too scary to describe.
City sustains at least $100 million worth of damage – See end of Avengers.
