HE NEVER DIED (2015)

Thursday, 28 January 2016 02:01

The Buzz:heneverdied

 

     A cannibalistic immortal must break his self-imposed seclusion when mobsters decide to use a young woman as a chance for revenge. Jack (Henry Rollins) is a no nonsense killer with a heart of gold plated iron who's personal war may truly be his chance for redemption.  

 

 

LET THE RIGHT ONE IN (2008)

Tuesday, 15 October 2013 02:12

The Buzz:

    Oskar is a bit of an outcast. He's 12 and doesn't have many friends. He spends most of his time fantasizing about revenge on the bullies at school. Then he meets Eli (pronounced Ee-Lee), a strange girl his age who moves in to the apartment next door. Eli seems a bit of an outcast herself and the two become fast friends. But there is more to Eli than even Oskar is aware, she's a vampire. This Swedish film based on a novel of the same name has become the quintessential modern day vampire story with beautiful imagery and a romance that, yes... is still better than Twilight.

 

I SELL THE DEAD (2008)

Saturday, 25 May 2013 19:54

The Buzz:

 

    Arthur Blake (Dominic Monaghan) was just a child when he became the apprentice of local grave robber Willie Grimes (Larry Fessenden). Eventually the duo comes across the darker side of grave robbing, that's right… the undead. From there a run in with a more ruthless rival group leads to the pair being framed for murder.  

 

 

 

 

 

FRIGHT NIGHT (2011)

Friday, 10 May 2013 00:00

The Buzz:

     Twenty-six years after Fright Night (a cult film at best) was released, Hollywood decided that yet another flick cannot be left well enough alone and needed to be remade.  This time around the story is set in Las Vegas, rather than suburbia, but I think that adds well to the story because a night lifestyle is accepted there.  If I were a vampire I would definitely consider a city that never sleeps and is a tourist/hooker honeypot as my home.  This time Charley is a geek acting under cover as a cool kid in order to score major poon tang, which I totally respect.  Colin Farrell pulls off a very good Dandridge character; smoldering good looks help him out in this category.  They tweaked the Peter Vincent character a bit because late night horror shows don’t exist anymore.  Instead, he is an over the top Vegas showman/vampire killer, and man, David Tennant puts on a hell of a show.  Oh yeah, Anton Yelchin doesn’t suck like the original Charley did either, but the same cannot be said about Evil Ed.

 

 

FRIGHT NIGHT (1985)

Thursday, 09 May 2013 02:45

The Buzz:

     Charley Brewster is your normal high school nerd except for the fact that he has a girlfriend (which, as a geek, I can say is pretty strange).  He does well at school and comes home to a loving mother and what we can assume is a metric ton of porn.  One of his vices is late night horror movies hosted by none other than the greatest vampire hunter of all time: Peter Vincent.  Oh, and there is one other thing, his new neighbor is a vampire and nobody believes Charley.  Is Jerry Dandridge really a vampire or is Charley just a little bit nuts?

 

 

 

 

 

MY STEPDAD'S A FREAKIN' VAMPIRE (2009)

Saturday, 04 May 2013 19:30

The Buzz:

    High school senior Rusty Funkouser is an aspiring magician 

like his late father. When he finds the mailman dead in his attic
the janitor at his school informs him he comes from a long line protecting the world from vampires - the leader of whom is his current stepdad! This low budget coming of age vampire tale is a throw back to classic 80s films while maintaining a modern edge.

     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER (2012)

Thursday, 12 July 2012 14:09

The Buzz:

     The “secret” life behind President Abraham Lincoln is revealed, as he seeks revenge against the vampire responsible for the death of his beloved mother. But other characters from our nation's history enter the fray, and soon Lincoln has to split his time between hunting the undead, and saving the nation from itself, the Civil War, and the vampire menace.

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.
