EMPEROR'S NEW GROOVE (2000)

Saturday, 28 September 2013 20:07

The Buzz:

 

     Kuzco is a self centered emperor who is turned into a Llama and forced to become appreciative of the power of friendship in order to get his human body back. Yzma is a power hungry witch who vengefully turns Kuzco into a llama in order to usurp the throne. Kronk is a dim-witted muscle bound lackey of Yzma who secretly struggles with following the orders of a mad woman. Pacha is a simple farmer who just wants to protect his family and village from destruction by the uncaring Kuzco, but is also driven by doing the right thing to help Kuzco get his human form back. All in all a largely stereotypical set of characters in generally predictable plot somehow turn this into a lesser known gem of Disney.

YOUNG ADULT (2011)

Saturday, 10 August 2013 21:51


The Buzz:

        Young Adult is the story of what happens when the stereotypical ‘It girl’ from high school never actually grows up. The movie opens up on a normal day for Mavis Gary (Charlize Theron), a fiction writer who can barely put down the booze bottle long enough to take care of her dog. After receiving an e-mail announcing the birth of her high school sweetheart's (Buddy Slade, played by Patrick Wilson) new baby, Mavis returns to her small hometown in hopes of rekindling what they had, because perfect timing, right?

 

PITCH PERFECT (2012)

Saturday, 29 June 2013 20:21

The Buzz: 

     Beca (Anna Kendrick) is a college not-so-rebel with a love of music and designs to move to LA to be a big producer, but her father (a professor) insists she must give college one good year before he'll consider sending her out to try her hand at her dream. After getting roped into the local all female A Cappella group they struggle to beat their rivals at the national championships.

 

The Buzz:

 

     This film follows 6 couples as they battle with different trials and tribulations of becoming pregnant or being parents, both planned and unplanned. We get to view this miracle from different perspectives such as young, old, married, dating, one night stands, adoption, accidents, long term efforts... pretty much any way that you can think of having a kid; it's at least touched on here. But despite this fact, I'm not entirely sure how the film really works as a translation of a pregnancy guide of the same name.

 

 

 

 

 

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.

TWILIGHT: BREAKING DAWN PART 1 (2011)

Tuesday, 05 March 2013 12:00

The Buzz:

    This is the first of two parts (see Peter Jackson, it can be done) of the final story in the Twilight “saga” and centers around the finalization of Bella and Edward’s relationship.  It begins with their wedding and then they go on a honeymoon and then she gets knocked up and pretty much dies.  There are some preludes to the second part of the story (I guess) and CGI talking wolves and stuff too, but overall it tells a really simple story with a lot of fluff.

 

 

 

 

 

 

DROP DEAD GORGEOUS (1999)

Friday, 25 January 2013 19:56

The Buzz:

     Lights, camera… exploding swan? Not exactly what pops into someone’s head when it comes to a chick flick, but when a documentary crew comes to film the 50th anniversary of the Mount Rose American Teen Princess Pageant, they come face to face with the sharpened claws of girls aiming to be the winner. Stars like Kirstie Alley, Kirsten Dunst, Denise Richards, Brittney Murphy, and many others play the wide variety of beauty queens and ruthless stage-moms in what starts out as a fun journey for the crown, which takes a sharp turn when the contestants start dropping like flies…

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.
