Roger Cor-MANIA Tanked Matinee: Where the Movies Come to Drink! http://tankedmatinee.com Sat, 27 May 2017 06:14:06 +0000 Joomla! - Open Source Content Management en-gb RC-M Poe-Vember: The Raven http://tankedmatinee.com/original-series/roger-cor-mania/2012-episodes/item/317-rc-m-poe-vember-the-raven http://tankedmatinee.com/original-series/roger-cor-mania/2012-episodes/item/317-rc-m-poe-vember-the-raven RC-M Poe-Vember: The Raven

Our tour through the Poe cycle for 2013 concludes with a movie in a castle, where Vincent Price misses his dead wife, Peter Lorre is always drunk, and Jack Nicholson makes a lot of goofy faces - but it's completely different from every other Poe movie, we swear! Find out how with this look at 1963's The Raven.

RC-M: A Bucket of Blood & Little Shop of Horrors http://tankedmatinee.com/original-series/roger-cor-mania/2012-episodes/item/287-rc-m-a-bucket-of-blood-little-shop-of-horrors http://tankedmatinee.com/original-series/roger-cor-mania/2012-episodes/item/287-rc-m-a-bucket-of-blood-little-shop-of-horrors RC-M: A Bucket of Blood & Little Shop of Horrors

In this episode, we check out a pair of movies that helped Roger Corman break new ground in the comedy genre and achieve mainstream success despite his usual thriftiness. The fact that they're basically the exact same story told two different ways is just one more way to be efficient! Prepare for one part beatniks, one part botany with the black comedies "A Bucket of Blood" and "Little Shop of Horrors."

RC-M: Not of This Earth (1995) http://tankedmatinee.com/original-series/roger-cor-mania/2012-episodes/item/282-rc-m-not-of-this-earth-1995 http://tankedmatinee.com/original-series/roger-cor-mania/2012-episodes/item/282-rc-m-not-of-this-earth-1995 RC-M: Not of This Earth (1995)

Philosophic_Al takes a third look at the classic tale of Mr. Johnson, his attractive nurse, and a lot of lackluster special effects with the '95 version of "Not of This Earth." Does the presence of a well-known lead make this the definitive edition? And was the original even worth re-making AGAIN, anyway?

Think Hollywood's obsession with remakes is a recent development? Nope, Roger Corman was a trend-setter there, too. One script, two movies, and thirty years between them - so which version is more worth watching? (Hint: it might be the one with more nudity in it)

In this new series, Philosophic_Al is back with a mission: to watch and review every movie Roger Corman ever made. We begin with a brief overview of Corman's lengthy career, and then weigh the strengths and weaknesses of the 1981 cult classic "Galaxy of Terror." Also, see Biggs' earlier take on the movie here.
