V/H/S (2012)

Friday, 22 November 2013 07:37

The Buzz:

     This film is technically the first in a series with the sequel V/H/S 2, which has already been reviewed on our site.  The film is basically a montage of short films bracketed by a story that is supposed to explain why these tapes are being watched.  So it is hard to take this film and talk about it as a whole, but we can give it a shot.  If you have a thing for sci-fi and horror but a short attention span, this may very well be your cup of tea.

        A psychologist and her team, who specialize in exposing phony psychics and miracle-healers, suddenly have their work cut out for them when a renowned psychic comes out of retirement.

 

REDEMPTION (2013)

Friday, 08 November 2013 15:33

The Buzz:

        Ex-special forces soldier Joey (Jason Statham) now lives on the streets while trying to hide from society and a court-martial. But unforeseen events allow him to take on the identity of another man, and with it a chance to do some good, and possibly redeem his sins.

 

V/H/S/2 (2013)

Friday, 01 November 2013 04:28

The Buzz:

        Two private investigators have been hired to track down a missing college kid, but when they get to his house all they find are some TV's and a collection of VHS tapes containing strange, horrible tapes of the paranormal in this follow on to the 2012 cult hit.

 

BATS (1999)

Friday, 25 October 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

        A pair of bats infected with a virus to make them lethal killing machines have escaped, and now swarms of bats are terrorizing the Texas countryside. And now it's up to a bat expert, her assistant, and the local sheriff to stop them before the virus spreads across the country.

 

JACK REACHER (2012)

Friday, 18 October 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

THE GREAT MAGICIAN (2011)

Friday, 04 October 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

         In post Revolutionary China, a mysterious magician returns from abroad, and is wrapped up in a scheme to overthrow the local Warlord. But he also has to win back his old love, the Warlord's 7th wife. And the Warlord's closest advisor may not have his best interests at heart. And the Japanese are involved and evil somehow. And there's magic shows. And kung-fu fighting. And WHAT THE HELL FILM, ENOUGH ALREADY!

 

NIGHT WATCH (2004)

Friday, 27 September 2013 16:07

The Buzz:

        Superhuman “Others” live among us, split between the forces of Light and Darkness. Long ago during a great battle between the two forces, a truce was struck so that neither force could directly influence the mortal world. Each side would patrol the other; the Light setup the Night Watch, and the side of Dark set up the Day Watch, each making sure the other didn't break the truce.

 

ANTIVIRAL (2012)

Friday, 20 September 2013 18:12

The Buzz:

        In some incredibly unhappy part of our supposed future, celebrity-worship has reached what I would normally call epidemic proportions, but considering the theme of this film that would be unfortunate. Fans who wish to become closer to their favorite celebrities will now pay exorbitant amounts of money to be injected with diseases from those celebrities' bodies. Our main character (calling him the protagonist just doesn't feel right with me) works for an esteemed clinic providing these services, and also makes money by stealing the various diseases and smuggling them out by infecting himself, so that they may be sold by piracy groups. Unfortunate events ensue.

 

THE ROAD (2009)

Friday, 13 September 2013 17:42

The Buzz:

        Viggo Mortensen travels through a post-apocalyptic wasteland (what kind of apocalypse is never mentioned, but my money is on giant meteor) with his son on their quest to reach the coast. But the road is fraught with dangers, from mother nature, roving gangs, and cannibals, forcing father and son to survive by any means possible.

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.
