STAKE LAND (2010)

Wednesday, 15 May 2013 05:23

The Buzz:

     In a dystopian future, the world has fallen under the curse of vampirism; it started as a disease and became a global epidemic.  We enter the story years into the decline of humanity and learn quickly that people have been reduced to living in pocket communities or they are members of the Brotherhood  (a religious sect that believes the zombies are a cleansing solution from God to make the Brotherhood the ultimate form of humanity).  We follow Mister and (for lack of a better word) his “adopted son” through this wasteland on the way to New Eden AKA Canada.  It’s a moody horror film that flew under the radar but thanks to Netflix is readily available to the public.

 

 

PI (1998)

Friday, 19 April 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

        A brilliant mathematician is studying the number Pi to find a pattern in the stock market, and through that a pattern to nature and the universe itself. But he must battle his own growing insanity, as he seeks to find a certain number that can unlock the secrets of life and existence.  

 

JESUS HENRY CHRIST (2012)

Saturday, 13 April 2013 19:25

The Buzz:

     Ten year old Henry James Herman (Jason Spevack) is a genius who's never known his father. After finding his half-sister he turns his mother (Toni Collette) and Dr. O'Hara's (Michael Sheen) life upside down. In the end, of course, everyone learns something.

 

 

 

  

ENCOUNTER AT RAVEN'S GATE (1988)

Friday, 12 April 2013 17:43

The Buzz:

        Strange things are happening in the middle-of-nowhere-Australian-outback. Because like that part of the world isn't terrible enough, now there are strange lights in the sky that...soak up water? And make people sound like they're main-lining helium? Am I remembering this movie right?

 

DOOMSDAY BOOK (2012)

Friday, 29 March 2013 15:33

The Buzz:

        Doomsday Book consists of three completely separate short stories having to do with the end of the world. Part one follows the outbreak of the zombie apocalypse in Seoul, and one young man's transformation from a lonely bachelor, into a murdering zombie. Part two deals with a robot who has reportedly achieved Buddhist enlightenment, and man's reaction to the claim. And finally part three follows a young girl who's Internet purchase of an 8-ball (the billiards ball, not a bag of drugs) endangers the entire human race.

 

CHARIOTS OF THE GODS (1970)

Thursday, 28 March 2013 20:03

The Buzz:

When did fringe elements of society suddenly become important to the general public consciousness? We all vaguely remember when the History Channel actually taught us about history instead of chronicling new developments in Bigfoot-hunting, and before the Honey Booboo era sapped the last drop of meaning from TLC's initialism. These days, the freaks, the kooks, and the crackpot conspiracy theorists have taken over the mainstream to such a degree that thousands of people showed up in New Orleans on Mayan Apocalypse Day to party with Giorgio Tsoukalos. Most people just know him as "that guy with the hair."

ATLANTIS: THE LOST EMPIRE (2001)

Friday, 22 March 2013 16:34

The Buzz:

        One of those Disney films from our childhood that flopped in the box office, but we all seem to remember fondly, Atlantis follows one Milo Thatch as he seeks to uncover the lost continent from legend. He meets up with an old friend of his grandfather's, who funds his expedition and provides an expert crew of explorers to aid him in his quest.

 

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (2004)

Thursday, 14 March 2013 17:16

The Buzz:

Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1986 stage adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera has become an iconic love story, synonymous with romance, beauty, and fantasy in the hearts of countless women. This is actually a real shame, because from a man's perspective, Phantom can basically be summed up as "Friend Zone - The Musical." It's the story of a smart, talented guy with lots of cool hobbies who provides years of kindness and support to the girl he's into, but is forsaken in favor of some rich pretty boy, merely because he just happens to be hideous to look upon, lives in a basement, and is not, technically, employed.*

[* Editor's Note: Not that I'm bitter or anything.]

But, close to home as this story may hit for some guys who are definitely not me, the 2004 movie version is still a beautiful, if controversial, retelling of arguably the most important show of its theatrical generation (or however theater time is measured... epochs, maybe?). For those of you who enjoy music, pagaentry, and romance, but can't spring for tickets to a Broadway revival, this film is absolutely worth seeing.

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. 

 

LES MISERABLES (2012)

Sunday, 03 March 2013 16:58

The Buzz:

     A musical taking place in the early 19th century Paris, we follow Jean Valjean in his struggle for redemption through the adoption of young Cosette. Meanwhile, he is tracked by Inspector Javert for crimes past and swept up into the French Rebellion.

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.
