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 THING (1982)

Monday, 15 April 2013 02:06

The Buzz:

     The cold makes for terrible pains in the joints and bad driving in the snow, but also it lends itself to amazing sci-fi/horror.  A small team of men in the artic are interrupted one day by a bunch of Norwegian men in a helicopter seemingly hunting a malamute.  The American camp takes in the dog and unwittingly lets something horrible into the rest of their short lives.  After the dog literally peels apart like a banana and assimilates other beings.  One by one the people at the camp become “things” and paranoia takes the place of good sense and one of the best horror films ever made ensues.

 

 

 

2001 MANIACS: FIELD OF SCREAMS (2010)

Friday, 05 April 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

        Loosely following 2005 film 2001 Maniacs, the demented residents of Pleasant Valley are having trouble finding victims for the annual Guts N' Glory Jamboree. They take their act on the road, where they run across the cast and crew of a reality TV show. Things go pretty much as expected from there.

 

JOKER (2012)

Thursday, 04 April 2013 01:24

The Buzz:

      During India’s independence from Britain territories needed to be rezoned so local government could take over.  The village of Paglapur had an incident on the night of zoning and because of this was never made part of India or Pakistan.  The incident was a minor one involving India’s largest insane asylum getting taken over by the inmates and then the same inmates running over the town.  Cut to the present and we meet Akshay Kumar who lives in America and is basically working for SETI, his project is on the verge of being cancelled and his life is about to change.  He is from Paglapur and he receives a message that his village is in danger.  The town has no water because a dam was built and no one will take responsibility for this village without a country.  So the village does the most obvious thing to solve this problem, fake an alien visitation.

 

 

 

HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS (2013)

Saturday, 30 March 2013 19:36

The Buzz:

 

     Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton star as the title characters Hansel and Gretel in tale which follows the Grimm Brothers' creations as adults who hunt down and extinguish the remnants of those who attempted to eat them as children. Bloody, dark, and full of attempts at fast paced action this film tries to be a fun genre film and just marginally succeeds.

GET THE GRINGO (2012)

Wednesday, 27 March 2013 08:28

The Buzz:

     Mel Gibson plays the title character that is thrown into a Mexican jail while trying to leave the country with two million in stolen cash.  While in prison he befriends a child (not in the Jeffrey Jones way) and learns that the kid is being left alive to culture a liver for the boss gangster in the joint.  Massive killing ensues on all sides of the conflict and good old gringo is in the middle of everything.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DEMON KNIGHT (1995)

Thursday, 28 March 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

     There is a constant battle between good and evil that rages unseen by most everyone in the world, but there are two people who fight that battle at every turn.  There is an artifact, a key to be precise that contains the blood of all who protect the side of good and light against the darkness, and this is the only weapon that matters.  When the stars align The Collector can unleash the power of demons and take over the world, but first the key must be destroyed.

 

 

 

 

SLITHER (2006)

Friday, 29 March 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

     In a sleepy town in South Carolina something strange is happening.  A bright light in the sky one night leads to a series of strange events leading to the end of life as the town knows it.  As with most “it came from outer space” films a meteor crashes to earth and the first thing that we do is touch it.  The toucher in this case is Michael Rooker, who is great in his role as a sleazy car salesm…human being.  After he is infected by the parasite he creates a “mother” for them and it is up to his wife (Elizabeth Banks) and her former lover (Nathan Fillion) to save the town.  They fail.

 

 

 

 

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.

 

CAPTAIN KRONOS: VAMPIRE HUNTER (1974)

Wednesday, 20 March 2013 05:12

The Buzz:

     This little known gem is one of the most original vampire films ever created.  It centers on a traveler and swashbuckler named Captain Kronos.  He winds up in a small village where there are reports of young women aging suddenly to the point of death.  Kronos and his good friend Dr. Marcus investigate and discover a strange family that seems to have always been a part of the town.  Could they be causing this epidemic?  And more importantly who are they?

 

 

 

 

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.
