WITHOUT A CLUE (1988)

Thursday, 21 March 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

     The tale of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson has been told many times and the characters have been played by many actors.  Rarely has the story been told as a spoof, but this film does that and does it quite well.  In this instance the roles are reversed with Watson being the intelligent crime solver and Holmes the bumbling fool.  Watson acts as Conan Doyle and writes stories about Sherlock solving crimes and hires Holmes (a washed up actor) to play the detective for the public eye.  But what happens when Watson is kidnapped and Holmes must solve a crime himself?

 

 

 

 

 

 

TITAN A.E. (2000)

Tuesday, 19 March 2013 06:12

The Buzz:

     In the distant future earth has used up most of its resources and we are planning a last ditch effort to establish a new colony off-world.  Earth has also pissed off most of the galaxy and so as the colony ship is preparing to launch it is attacked by the Drej, who are an energy based race.  The earth is all but destroyed and the few survivors are either in drifter colonies around the world or all but extinct.  This film was a financial disaster that ended both the career of Don Bluth and closed Fox Animation Studios, but I think it was groundbreaking and tragically ahead of its time.

 

 

 

 

[REC] 3: GENESIS (2012)

Friday, 15 March 2013 20:09

The Buzz:

        The [Rec] series continues into its third chapter, but this time at an Spanish wedding instead of the apartment building from movies 1 & 2. Zombie demons and shaky cam commence in this somewhat quirky little horror film.

WATERSHIP DOWN (1978)

Friday, 15 March 2013 00:00

The Buzz:

     This film is based off of Richard Adams’ 1972 book and is a truly great film and definitely not meant for children.  The story is based around a group of bunnies that when warned leave their warren to travel to their promised land after one of their number has a vision.  Along the way they experience an amazing journey as well as danger, tragic loss and the truest love.  The final showdown with General Woundwort is terrifying and spellbinding at the same time.  This is one of my favorite films of all time and succeeds as animation mainly because of the lack of a Disney stamp. 

 

 

 

HAUNTED BOAT (2006)

    Boy gets boat. Friends go party on boat. Boat is Haunted.

 

 

 

FREAKS (1932)

Monday, 04 March 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

     This film is widely regarded as one of the most controversial movies of all time, and I could see why even today some people would be taken aback by its premise.  The story revolves around the “freaks” made popular by P.T. Barnum in the early 1900s and is told mainly from their perspective.  A trapeze artist discovers that one of the midgets is in fact very wealthy and decides to marry him for it; all the while having an affair with the strong man.  After accidentally spilling the proverbial beans on her affair, the family of freaks shuns her but Hans stays with her.  She rewards him by poisoning him on their wedding night and for some time after, but the “freaks” get their revenge in the end.

 

 

GODZILLA 2000 (1999)

Monday, 25 February 2013 03:36

The Buzz:

    
After a long hiatus the Godzilla series showed back up in America in the late 90's with this deserving entry.  The plot goes like any other Godzilla film in the history of the series; if you are unfamiliar that means that people call on Godzilla for help and he does just that.  Oh wait but he destroys Tokyo in the process.

 

BLITZ (2011)

Saturday, 23 February 2013 15:37

The Buzz:

     "A serial killer is taking vengance out against London cops and nobody can stop him" is the basic tagline for this British film.  In a needed departure from his action persona Jason Statham returns to his early acting roots in this subdued crime flick.  The film is quite good for what it is, but the ending is easily the best functioning part of the film; it "ties the room together" to coin a phrase.

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.
