I'm stoked to announce the Badass Digest partnership with the Houston Alamo Drafthouse for BADASS 101:
The world is getting soft. We are getting soft. As civilization slowly marches towards a future full of politically correct, health food conscious, light beer sipping emotional marshmallows that don't know how to take a punch, it is becoming evident that we, as a society, need to relearn how to be a badass. The Alamo Drafthouse and Badass Digest are here to help with a new monthly series at Mason Park dedicated to teaching the art of badassery.
Every month, we’ll screen a film that has proven itself to be badass. Screened from a 35mm print, these movies are the cinematic equivalent of wearing sunglasses, a leather jacket and chewing on a toothpick.
The first screening is this Sunday night, a gorgeous 35mm print of the indisputably fucking awesome Carpenter classic They Live starring the man himself, Rowdy Roddy Piper. He's come here to chew bubblegun and kick ass, and he's all out of bubblegum, my friends. Join Alamo programmer (and sometimes BAD correspondent) Robert Saucedo and myself as we host this paragon of anti-consumerism rife with wrestling, ridiculous one-liners, aliens and the longest, toughest, most awkward and least choreographed fist fight known to cinema.
We've got free sunglasses for all attendees and plenty of other surprises in store. Future screenings include Tombstone and I Come In Peace among many, many others, so stay tuned. I'm giving you a choice - either come to the screening or start eating that trash can. Get your tickets here!
