The Buzz:

        The Federation's war against the bugs continues in this sequel to 1997's Starship Troopers. A band of troopers have become stranded at an abandoned outpost after their operation goes pear-shaped. Inside they find Cap. Dax, who's been locked up and left behind after murdering his commanding officer. But soon the troopers have to rely on his help, as it turns out they have more than just the bugs outside the fence to worry about.

 

THE LITTLE NORSE PRINCE (1968)

Thursday, 06 June 2013 16:38

 The Buzz:

The first animated feature directed by Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies), with an animation crew including the legendary Hayao Miyazaki (pretty much every other anime film you’ve ever heard of), The Little Norse Prince is a magical adventure set in Iron Age Scandinavia, which includes many familiar fantasy tropes but tells a story all its own, realized in subdued but pleasant ‘60s animation. Though it’s less detailed, gritty, and intense than more recent Japanese animation, there’s still plenty of charm and artistry on display that make it worth checking out.

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?

 

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.

 

 

 

 

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."

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?

 

 

 

 

THE ASSAULT (2010)

Thursday, 21 March 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

        Based on real events, this movie chronicles the events of the hijacking of Air France Flight 8969, and the efforts of the French government and their Special Forces, the GIGN, to rescue the hostages. Told through the eyes of an Intelligence Analyst, the terrorists, and a GIGN operative, The Assault details the events of the hijacking, and the subsequent shootout onboard.

 

2001 MANIACS (2005)

Tuesday, 19 March 2013 19:36

The Buzz:

        Once again, some horny teenagers are off to Spring Break and run into trouble along the way. This time they get sidetracked by a detour sign into the little town of Pleasant Valley, where the "friendly" southerners take them into and make them honored guests of the "Guts and Glory Jubilee." But things quickly take a turn for the sinister, and the people of Pleasant Valley turn out to be something other than what they appear in this equal parts horror-comedy.

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.
