ENCOUNTER AT RAVEN'S GATE (1988)

Friday, 12 April 2013 17:43

The Buzz:

        Strange things are happening in the middle-of-nowhere-Australian-outback. Because like that part of the world isn't terrible enough, now there are strange lights in the sky that...soak up water? And make people sound like they're main-lining helium? Am I remembering this movie right?

 

2001 MANIACS: FIELD OF SCREAMS (2010)

Friday, 05 April 2013 12:00

        Loosely following 2005 film 2001 Maniacs, the demented residents of Pleasant Valley are having trouble finding victims for the annual Guts N' Glory Jamboree. They take their act on the road, where they run across the cast and crew of a reality TV show. Things go pretty much as expected from there.

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.
