The Buzz:  

     Starship Troopers, directed by Paul Verhoeven, was a military sci-fi flick made in 1997. 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. After joining the mobile infantry, the bugs launch an attack on Earth and destroy Rico’s home town.  The movie follows Rico’s rise up in the mobile infantry, and the fight against the bugs!

FLASH GORDON (1980)

Thursday, 21 February 2013 23:02

The Buzz:

If science fiction were birds, then the Flash Gordon series would be the archaeopteryx – the brightly-colored, slightly ridiculous progenitor of the entire species. Remember how in the original Star Wars, the plot was kinda episodic, Luke was sortof endearingly generic and boring, Darth Vader was unabashedly villainous, and side characters like Han Solo kinda stole the show, anyway? The old Flash Gordon serials were what inspired George Lucas to write Star Wars in the first place, and the 1980 Dino de Laurentiis adaptation of those serials takes all the best elements of space opera and turns them up to 11. With gleefully over-the-top performances, lavish production values, and an original soundtrack by Queen (yes, THAT Queen), Flash Gordon is an under-appreciated gem that should not be missed.

Soon after a Nazi officer with dreams of being the next Fuhrer leads an expedition to Earth, culminating in an "Invasion of the Moon-Nazi's" (was that an MST3K episode?).

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.
