JEFF, WHO LIVES AT HOME (2011)

Saturday, 21 September 2013 19:56

The Buzz:

 

     Jeff, per the title, lives at home. With his mom. At the age of 30. He's a pothead. He has a somewhat successful brother who is a bit of a dick. His father died when he was younger and ever since he's been preoccupied with trying to listen for what, exactly, the Universe is trying to tell him. Everyone in Jeff's family is broken, including himself, and no one gets him. But by the end of the day it may just be Jeff's idiosyncracy that saves them all.  

 

DRAG ME TO HELL (2009)

Friday, 20 September 2013 13:14

The Buzz

 

     Writers Sam and Ivan Raimi pair up with director Sam Raimi to make a classic shock horror film starring Alison Lohman and Justin Long in the style of classic Sam Raimi. Hits tons of tropes ranging from gypsy curses, house cat sacrifice, and a foul-mouth possessed goat. Although it has powerful subtext if you're looking for it (as all worthwhile horror movies should), it never takes itself seriously and produces tons of genuine laughs as well as creep-out and gross-out horror. This may be the most competent PG-13 horror movie ever produced, and it is one of my favorites.

THE NUDE BOMB (1980)

Wednesday, 18 September 2013 21:56

     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.

BIG MONEY HUSTLAS (2001)

Wednesday, 28 August 2013 21:25

The Buzz


YES, THIS IS AN INSANE CLOWN POSSE MOVIE. NO, DO NOT CLOSE THE WINDOW. Just bear with me. I know what it looks like. I, too, was dubious when my friend Drew recommended it to me. And he, too, told me to bear with him. I am so glad I did. On the back of the box of this movie, it says that it is for juggalos exclusively(ICP fans, for those who don't know the parlance), but upon viewing it, that is wholly not the case. What it is, in fact, is an uproariously self-referential crime comedy where Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J of ICP (I hate that I know their names now) play a hardboiled cop and a crime lord in conflict in the streets of New York City. The story is mundane, but the constant fourth-wall-breaking dialogue and unsubtle gags make for an excellent, genuinely funny film to drink to. Also, it features a cameo of the Misfits, Dolemite (the real one!) and a legitimate actor that you might not expect!

YOUNG ADULT (2011)

Saturday, 10 August 2013 21:51


The Buzz:

        Young Adult is the story of what happens when the stereotypical ‘It girl’ from high school never actually grows up. The movie opens up on a normal day for Mavis Gary (Charlize Theron), a fiction writer who can barely put down the booze bottle long enough to take care of her dog. After receiving an e-mail announcing the birth of her high school sweetheart's (Buddy Slade, played by Patrick Wilson) new baby, Mavis returns to her small hometown in hopes of rekindling what they had, because perfect timing, right?

 

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.

 

 

THE LOST SKELETON OF CADAVRA (2001)

Saturday, 03 August 2013 17:20

The Buzz:


     A 2001 black and white film written as a spoof to classic 1950's-60's era sci-fi thriller flicks the like would have been seen
in drive-ins across the US. This amazing throwback to a bygone time of cinema delivers comedy that just about anyone should be able to appreciate, but ultimately will warm the hearts of die hard cinephiles who have seen plenty of these old black and white schlock fests to appreciate just how spot on of a spoof this really is. 

 

 

MONKEYBONE (2001)

Friday, 02 August 2013 21:25

The Buzz:

     Stu Miley, played by the always-likeable Brendan Fraser, is a kind-hearted artist and creator of Monkeybone, a mischievous cartoon primate who could have provided the inspiration for the "John Chimpo" character in Super Troopers. When a car accident puts Stu into a coma, he falls into the Land of Sleep, a surreal carnival dimension populated by dreams, mythical beasts, and other figments of the imagination, including Monkeybone himself. Stu and his creation have to work together to escape Limbo and return to the land of the living... but things get kinda complicated.

POOTIE TANG (2001)

Thursday, 11 July 2013 01:02

The Buzz:

     Originally based on a sketch from The Chris Rock Show, Pootie Tang is a blaxploitation film with turn-of-the-millenium style and sensibilities. It chronicles the tale of jive-talking musician/ladies' man/crime-fighter/all-around nice guy Pootie Tang, who uses the magical whuppin' belt left to him by his father, Daddie Tang, to clean up the streets and defend inner city children from the depredations of Corporate America. Have you seen Black Dynamite? If you didn't like it, we have nothing further to discuss. If you did like it, Pootie Tang is basically Black Dynamite if it were written and directed by Louis CK. That's right, Louis CK made a blaxploitation movie, in 2001, and you should totally watch it.

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.
