As the human federation expands its military control, they lock horns with aliens from the planet Klendathu.  Johnny Rico (Casper Van Dien) is a high school student on Earth who has his heart set on being a citizen, something only those with military service can claim.

ZERO DARK THIRTY (2012)

Monday, 25 February 2013 00:28

The Buzz:

THE LAST STAND (2013)

Thursday, 14 February 2013 00:18

 

The Buzz

     Who says being old school is boring? Director Jee-Woon Kim brings us The Last Stand starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as Ray Owens, an ex-LAPD Narcotics officer that settles down in the small town of Summerton Junction and becomes sheriff. When an infamous drug lord escapes from the FBI and makes a break towards Mexico, it's up to Owens and the rest of his department to keep him from crossing the border and continuing his life of crime. The cast-list has a lot of well known talent that doesn't seem like it should work out, but believe me when I say it does. The Last Stand is a fantastic Action-comedy that brings back memories of the classics that made Arnie famous in the first place.

FDR: AMERICAN BADASS! (2012)

Friday, 08 February 2013 00:14

The Buzz:

 

     Saint James St. James does it again! There is absolutely nothing about this movie that isn’t fantastic.  We’re talking about an all-star cast: Barry Bostwick, Lin Shaye, Brush McGill, Ray Wise, Hercules (some know him as Kevin Sorbo) and of course, Ross Patterson!  If these names don’t make you tingle with prepubescent joy, then I do not believe this site is for you.  

 

SHARK ATTACK IN THE MEDITERRANEAN (2004)

Wednesday, 06 February 2013 23:26

 The Buzz:


     If you're anything like me, you'll want to see this movie just because it's about Ralf Moeller fighting a giant shark. Moeller, an action star best known for his role as Conan the Barbarian in the syndicated TV series, and as "that one huge German guy" in Gladiator, The Scorpion King, and Beerfest, stars here as Sven, a helicopter pilot haunted by the memory of his wife, who was eaten by a giant shark three years earlier. When the creature appears to have returned to the resort island of Majorca just in time for the annual jet-ski tournament, Sven is the only one who believes there's any danger, and must do battle with a sinister corporation to bring down his underwater nemesis.

First 24 Hours: Mechwarrior Online

Sunday, 27 January 2013 20:08

Mechwarrior Online Logo

        Back in the day, I was what one might call a Mechwarrior FANATIC. When I got old enough to give up Pokémon cards (something many of my friends have yet to do), and everyone else was getting real heavy into Magic: The Gathering, I walked into a Costco computer game aisle and found a curious gem labeled Mechwarrior 4: Vengeance. Remembering playing Mechwarrior 3 as a young kid (and sucking at it), I decided to pick it up and see what a new Mechwarrior game could do for me.

        Next thing I know I'm getting several other friends into it, and buying every expansion and title in the Mechwarrior 4 franchise (Mercenaries becoming my favorite), devoting hours upon hours to it. Many a lunch period was spent swapping Mech builds, talking strategies, and debating the merits of speed vs. firepower vs. extra armor.

        Well like many things it eventually faded away when new games came along, and I largely forgot about it.

        Until this little video popped up on YouTube one morning...

BENEATH HILL 60 (2010)

Tuesday, 11 December 2012 22:55

The Buzz:

     Based on true events, both sides of World War I use miners to tunnel under the opposing trenches and destroy them. Beneath Hill 60 follows Australian miner Oliver Woodward as he faces the horrors of trench warfare, and the terror of underground tunnels that can collapse or be broken into by enemy soldiers at any moment.

AGE OF HEROES (2011)

Tuesday, 11 December 2012 22:47

The Buzz:

     The true story of how Britain's 30 Commando Unit was formed during World War II. Led by Ian Flemming, the new unit is sent on a top secret mission to Norway to steal the Nazi's newest RADAR technology.

THE EXPENDABLES 2 (2012)

Wednesday, 29 August 2012 11:29

The Buzz:

     The sequel to the 2010 action film The Expendables, The Expendables 2 is once again another film that exists solely to put near every action star from ever onto the screen at the same time and have them beat the ever loving shit out of each other, as well as an near inexhaustible supply of extras and stunt men. As well as keeping Hollywoods pyrotechnics experts employed.

THE BOURNE LEGACY (2012)

Wednesday, 29 August 2012 09:29

The Buzz:

     Picking up where the Bourne trilogy left off (kinda), super agent Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner) is betrayed by his agency (sorta), and sets on a path of revenge against them (-ish). Along the way he meets a doctor (Rachel Weisz) who's life is in danger from the same agency, and together they start their life on the run (maybe).

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.
