PITCH PERFECT (2012)

Saturday, 29 June 2013 20:21

The Buzz: 

     Beca (Anna Kendrick) is a college not-so-rebel with a love of music and designs to move to LA to be a big producer, but her father (a professor) insists she must give college one good year before he'll consider sending her out to try her hand at her dream. After getting roped into the local all female A Cappella group they struggle to beat their rivals at the national championships.

 

I SELL THE DEAD (2008)

Saturday, 25 May 2013 19:54

The Buzz:

 

    Arthur Blake (Dominic Monaghan) was just a child when he became the apprentice of local grave robber Willie Grimes (Larry Fessenden). Eventually the duo comes across the darker side of grave robbing, that's right… the undead. From there a run in with a more ruthless rival group leads to the pair being framed for murder.  

 

 

 

 

 

DEFENDOR (2009)

Friday, 17 May 2013 05:49

The Buzz:

     To build off of the current superhero craze (see our podcast for more info), we are going to look at a Canadian superhero; no not Powdered Toast Man, but Defendor.  I say Canadian because the film was made there and never got an American release, which is a damn shame.  The film is the story of a special needs (I don’t know if that’s PC, but if not….who the fuck cares) man who takes on the persona of Defendor to protect people from the bad men sent by his nemesis Captain Industry.  Along the way he meets a crack-addled prostitute who he sees as a lady in peril and a dirty cop working for his nemesis.  Will his actions help him defeat the Captain or will they lead him to a painful end?

 

 

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA (1986)

Monday, 15 April 2013 04:23

The Buzz:

     Jack Burton is your average truck-drivin’ man who seems to always find himself in the strangest of circumstances.  While trying to collect on a debt from his good friend he stumbles upon a kidnapping involving his good friend’s fiancée.  This escalates very quickly into uncovering Chinese gang warfare in the heart of San Francisco and an ancient evil named David Lo Pan.  The film quickly escalates into a martial arts comedy unlike anything you have ever seen.  You may say is it even better than My Name is Bruce; this film is the one of the best things to come out of the 80’s and a real treat.

 

 

 

THE TALE OF LEGENDARY LIBIDO (2008)

Wednesday, 10 April 2013 23:52

The Buzz:

        Director Han-sol Shin brings us the heart warming story of a young man growing into manhood. Byun(Tae-gyu Bong) is a very typical young man in his village in South Korea. Well almost typical. He lives in a village full of crazy horny women who just want to bang ALL the time. And he is woefully incapable of pleasing a woman. I mean he is Impotent. 

MANHATTAN (1979)

Saturday, 23 March 2013 21:04

The Buzz:

 

     Auteur Woody Allen's love note to New York, this picture majestically follows Isaac Davis (Allen) as he and his friends (Diane Keaton, Mariel Hemingway, Michael Murphy, Anne Byrne) struggle with what it means to find happiness and love. They say that with age comes wisdom, but perhaps it also brings with it the weight of our past experiences.

 

THE FRIGHTENERS (1996)

Saturday, 09 March 2013 19:24

The Buzz:


     Michael J. Fox plays a psychic investigator named Frank Bannister who can see ghosts after a tragic car accident that left his wife dead. When a serial killer returns from Hell to rack up his kill count once again Bannister must put an end to it at all costs. 

 

GOD BLESS AMERICA (2012)

Saturday, 09 March 2013 18:01

The Buzz:

     A dark comedy and political satire about a man down on his luck and sick of the world. Just when he was about to take his own life... he realizes there are those far more deserving of death than himself. Soon he's traveling the country with a 17 year old girl killing the assholes and low lifes of America.

 

ZOMBIELAND (2009)

Friday, 15 March 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

     This could be considered the pre-eminent zombie comedy/horror film of all time but unfortunately Return of the Living Dead already exists.  The film centers around four strangers who are just trying to survive the zombie apocalypse and even though they try to do it alone they discover it’s better with friends.  In essence the story is National Lampoon’s: Vacation with zombies; the ultimate goal on this cross country trip is to go to an amusement park and to make merry along the way.  This film does something that not many other ones do; it makes a zombie film for everyone.

 

 

 

 

I'M GONNA GIT YOU SUCKA (1988)

Saturday, 02 March 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

     Remember when the Wayans brothers were funny?  If the answer is no then you need to see this movie, it is their tribute to everything Blaxploitation.  This film borrows from a ton of action films to create a very respectable comedy that has become lost in the shuffle over the years.  Keenan Ivory Wayans is a man returned from the war to a city overrun with crime and The Man (John Vernon) is behind it all.  Plenty of site and word gags make this film very enjoyable in a way no other Wayans film has ever been.

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.
