HOT FUZZ (2007)

Wednesday, 29 January 2014 19:19

THE BUZZ

     Let’s be honest. You’ve probably seen Hot Fuzz if you’re on this site. And that’d be unsurprising. It had a wide release, was well marketed, and is arguably the best British buddy cop mystery satire action drama released in 2007. On the surface, it stands as a very good example of how to lampoon a genre while being an excellent entry in said genre at the same time (The Other Guys also does a good job with this). It’s the second entry in the “Blood and Cornetto” trilogy that also includes Shaun of the Dead before it and The World’s End after. Masterminded by Nick Frost, Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright, and a ton of other bit actors, the whole set of movies is worth your time. Loaded with inter-movie references, tight shots, very smart comedy, and great action, if you have not seen this film before, you desperately need to.

THE OTHER GUYS (2010)

Monday, 30 December 2013 21:14

THE BUZZ

     Adam McKay (Anchorman, Talladega Nights, Step-Brothers) directs a high-budget buddy cop action comedy starring Will Farrell and Marky Mark Wahlberg. You may have already decided in advance not to watch this movie because you don’t like Will Farrell movies or that you think it looked really stupid in the ads. As someone who generally doesn’t like movies that have Farrell as a front man, let me assure you that this film is vastly different. It features an array of talent including (among others and various cameos) Michael Keaton, Eva Mendes, Steve Coogan, Ice-T as an uncredited narrator, and the duo pair of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson as ubermacho supercops. Hilarious (seriously, it’s the funniest comedy I saw in 2011 after I skipped it in 2010 because I thought it would suck), exciting, and self-aware all the way through, this movie is in a vein much more like Tropic Thunder than Semi-Pro. What starts as a modernized Lethal Weapon turns into an elaborate, character-driven comedy-thriller rooted in the world of financial crime not unlike the dealings that got unearthed following the crash, and it makes for damn fine entertainment.

MAKKHI (2012)

HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE (2013)

Sunday, 01 December 2013 19:07

TERMINATOR 3: RISE OF THE MACHINES (2003)

Monday, 25 November 2013 23:06

The Buzz

 

     Arnold (do you really need to know which one?) stars in the third installment of the Terminator series; a movie that debuted a month before he announced his candidacy for governorship in the California recall election of 2003 (do you really need to know if he won?), and I assume that he was trying to earn cash for the campaign, because this film does not deviate or try anything new. Features expansion on the most bastardized storyline outside of the Zelda series, lots of very cool explosions, and tons of self-referential humor. Yes, it's the entry where both the machines and the scriptwriting become self-aware.

JACK REACHER (2012)

Friday, 18 October 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

        A sniper attack leaves the city paralyzed, and suddenly a man from the suspect's past, an ex-Army MP by the name of Jack Reacher, appears to investigate the case. But this supposedly open & shut case becomes much more complicated as a conspiracy of murder and corruption is uncovered.

 

THE CROW (1993)

Saturday, 05 October 2013 21:30

The Buzz:

 

    Eric Draven and his fiancé Shelley Webster are murdered on the night before Halloween, the holiday the two intended to be married on. A year later Draven is summoned from the dead by a crow to enact revenge on the thugs who killed him and his love and finally bring peace to Detroit (unfortunately we've all seen Robocop and know it can't last long…). The film was Brandon Lee, beloved actor and son to legendary martial artist/actor Bruce Lee, final film. He was tragically shot while filming a scene for one of the flashbacks which almost caused the film to never be released. Luckily, Miramax picked it up and made sure it was finished so that we have this fantastic flick that is a perfect eulogy to Lee. 

 

 

THE NUDE BOMB (1980)

Wednesday, 18 September 2013 21:56

The Buzz:

     Would you believe…it’s up to Agent Maxwell Smart to keep the world clothed? KAOS, an evil crime syndicate, has created a new type of weapon that will destroy all of the worlds clothing and Smart is the only one “up” for the challenge.

RED DAWN (2012)

Friday, 30 August 2013 14:06

The Buzz:

        This reboot of the 1984 classic (?) follows a group of teenagers as their world is thrown into chaos following an invasion by North Korea. Soon the kids are mounting a guerrilla resistance to the foreign occupiers, in this high-adrenaline action flick.

 

WOOCHI (2009)

Saturday, 10 August 2013 19:41

The Buzz:

     In the beginning humans and animals lived in harmony.
Except animals were huge and bipedal and wore clothes. Then they stopped living in harmony and the big bipedal animals are magically sealed in gourds. During the Joseon Dynasty in Korea a mischievous Taoist wizard in training named Woochi is framed for murdering his master and sealed in a scroll. Now in present day Korea the evil bipedal animals are back and Woochi is released by the three immortal wizards who put him in the scroll. Shenanigans ensue.

About Us

Tanked Matinee is the place to go for good drinking movies. What do we mean by that? Simply speaking, we evaluate and recommend entertainment media based on how much fun it is to watch with friends on the sofa and a cold beer in hand.

Everyone knows "The Godfather" is a great movie, but is it as great to drink with as "Roadhouse?" We can appreciate "Citizen Kane" as a masterpiece of cinema, but is it as good a centerpiece for your party as "Santa Clause Conquers the Martians?"

Tanked Matinee appreciates film as art, but when you're kicking back on Friday night with a tall Rum & Coke, you're not looking for art, man, you want to be entertained. We're here to recommend the best movies for your night in, whether it's a big party, small get-together, or just a quiet night alone with a bottle of wine or three.
