Worried his life's love could never see past his deformity he travels on foot (and in cabs) dispensing wisdom with a shrouded visage as he hunts for the man who wronged him... in hopes, perhaps, to save both of their souls.

THE FP (2011)

Thursday, 06 February 2014 20:46

THE BUZZ

     In a post-apocalyptic wasteland, gangs vie for control of Frazier Park (abbreviated as titular The FP) through a brutal blood sport much akin to the thunderdome. Except instead of any real blood sport, it’s a dance game called Beat-Beat Revolution. After his brother BTRO gets literally served to death by a rival gang’s superior performance, JTRO (played by writer and director Jason Trost) leaves the FP. However, a year later, the park is in shambles due to the evil gang’s malevolent rule, and JTRO must return to save the day and serve up some white-hot BBR revenge. Featuring awesome sets, insanely high BPM techno, good costuming, and ……..odd humor, this film was ignored by many, shat on by a bunch of critics, and watched by few. But fuck the haters, this movie is awesome, and you should watch it.

COCKNEYS VS ZOMBIES (2012)

Wednesday, 05 February 2014 12:00

The Buzz:

        At the same time brothers Terry & Andy (Rasmus Hardiker & Harry Treadaway, respectfully) have teamed up with their cousin (Michelle Ryan), their friend (Jack Doolan), and the local psychopath (Ashley Thomas) to rob a bank in order to keep grandpa's (Alan Ford) home from being closed down, wouldn't you know it, zombies. What follows is a delightful little comedy-horror about the brothers trying to rescue granddad, and escape the undead hordes.

 

THE MAN FROM NOWHERE (2010)

Saturday, 04 January 2014 20:35

The Buzz:

 

      A quiet pawn store owner is brought into an organized crime battle when his neighbor is killed and her daughter kidnapped. Eventually we find that the pawn shop owner is not whom he seems and the criminals who kidnapped the little girl are regretting they ever met him. The highest grossing film in Korea in 2010, this hard hitting action film also has heart.

 

THE OTHER GUYS (2010)

Monday, 30 December 2013 21:14

THE BUZZ

     Adam McKay (Anchorman, Talladega Nights, Step-Brothers) directs a high-budget buddy cop action comedy starring Will Farrell and Marky Mark Wahlberg. You may have already decided in advance not to watch this movie because you don’t like Will Farrell movies or that you think it looked really stupid in the ads. As someone who generally doesn’t like movies that have Farrell as a front man, let me assure you that this film is vastly different. It features an array of talent including (among others and various cameos) Michael Keaton, Eva Mendes, Steve Coogan, Ice-T as an uncredited narrator, and the duo pair of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Samuel L. Jackson as ubermacho supercops. Hilarious (seriously, it’s the funniest comedy I saw in 2011 after I skipped it in 2010 because I thought it would suck), exciting, and self-aware all the way through, this movie is in a vein much more like Tropic Thunder than Semi-Pro. What starts as a modernized Lethal Weapon turns into an elaborate, character-driven comedy-thriller rooted in the world of financial crime not unlike the dealings that got unearthed following the crash, and it makes for damn fine entertainment.

YELLOWBRICKROAD (2010)

Friday, 20 December 2013 07:44

The Buzz:

     Have you ever read one of those synopses on Netflix that sounded so freaking amazing and wonderful that you had to see it that instant?  I was recently tricked into this exact situation by the malevolent gods that control that great movie catalog in the sky.   The film was based on an entire town of people just standing up one day and walking into the woods in 1940.  The town numbered slightly over 500 and after a few days law enforcement went down the path and found over 300 people either frozen or horribly mutilated.  Everything was swept under the rug until the Freedom of Information Act allowed some documentarians to get access to the files and this is their journey.  Sounds like an interesting premise right?  Unfortunately that is on the title card that begins the film; below I will discuss what followed.

 

 

 

THE AMERICAN ASTRONAUT (2001)

Tuesday, 17 December 2013 20:38

THE BUZZ

     The frontman of Billy Nayer Show (to quote Wikipedia, a New York musical group of questionable genre) made a truly bizarre monochrome quasi-space western musical noir comedy drama adventure. With original music by the band organically fit into the (for lack of a better word) movie, this flick provides viewers with a surreal, almost nonsensical, definitely unusual experience for those curious enough to watch it and lucky enough to find it. It’s currently on Netflix, but who knows how long that could be for. I’m a huge fan of strange movies; this is the weirdest fucking movie I’ve seen since Taxidermia. I’ll attempt to summarize, just so I can say I tried: Samuel Curtis (a guy who’s a lot like Lone Star from Space Balls) gets hired to take The Boy Who Actually Saw a Woman’s Breast from Jupiter, the Planet of Men to Venus, the Planet of Women so that he can mate with them. All the while being chased by his arch-nemesis Professor Hess, a thrill-killer who can’t kill Curtis because Hess has an unspecified problem with Curtis. Yeah, that’s the best I can do. It’s so goddamned weird.

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.
