3. The Gang Destroys Civilization As We Know It in The World’s End

WorldsEndOvernight

Going into this film – I’m not sure anyone suspected that it would end with a post-apocalyptic fireside narration where the world was roamed by wayward alien robots and Simon Pegg dressed like some sort of vampire hunter. Then again, that’s just one of the reasons this film was so amazing.

In terms of drinking night disasters I’d put blowing up the world at about a nine out of ten – ten being reserved for Goldschlager.

2. Everyone Has A Terrible Evening in Night Of The Living Dead

LivingDeadOvernight

Just an all-around crappy time, and by “everyone” I guess I mean “the entire world” because our deceased loved ones have begun tearing themselves into reanimation and hunger for our flesh. And keep in mind that this universe doesn’t have zombies in their pop culture, which means the only logical conclusion to the situation is that the world hates them and wants them all to die in the worst way.

It’s really a bummer of a night – and for the characters in the film, the best-case scenario is getting shot and burned by rednecks.

1. Marty McFly Becomes The First Non-Dog To Travel Through Time in Back To The Future

BTTFOvernight

Going from a high school slacker to historic space-time pioneer is a hell of a thing to happen both overnight, and also in a mall parking lot. In fact, this whole series happens in the rough span of a month for Marty, and like two days for his non-time traveling family – at least the version of his family that doesn’t blink out of existence when they get changed in the first film.

I guess these kinds of things happen when parents let their kids hang out with a weird old man in his garage. Time travel is actually the best possible outcome for that scenario, when you think about it.
