The Buzz:

A party of potential FBI profilers embark on a final test to make it into the Bureau, but of course it’s not a movie unless one of them is secretly a SERIAL KILLER! In a modern re-telling (well…kind of) of “12 Little Indians,” out group of…characters (not quite heroes) must figure out which one of them is the Puppet Master aka Bad Guy before their evil plan ends in all of their deaths.

The Buzz:

        The true(ish) story of the serial killer Robert Hansen. A young prostitute escapes the clutches of a man who murders young women, setting off a chain of events that eventually led to the killer's capture by the Alaskan State Troopers. Starring Nicholas Cage, John Cusack, and Vanessa Hudgens.    

Life of the Party:

        So, if you're anything like me, you probably saw those first two names and started to have some doubts. But I'm here to tell you to go ahead and dispel them; Cage and Cusack turn out a pretty good crime-thriller. The story is intriguing, even if I don't know just how “based on true events” the film is

     We truly have reached an interesting time when mildly popular internet memes are enough to inspire entire films. The ad depicted on the poster actually did run in Backwoods Home Magazine back in 1997 (Spoilers: It was a gag written by a staff member) and many years later was rediscovered as one of those mildly interesting bits of weirdness that floats around online imageboards. The suggestion of supernatural adventures lurking just outside the periphery of normal life was just mildly interesting enough to inspire writer/producer Derek Connolly and director Colin Trevorrow to create this movie, about a crew of journalists who track down the ad's mysterious author and try to determine whether he's completely mad, or a genuine mad scientist.

THE BUZZ (HA!)

 

     Danny Glover and the Dread Pirate Roberts star in a psychological horror film about a manipulating serial killer who forces people to solve or escape punishing traps in order to learn something about themselves. I won't say much more about the plot, because much like the movie Se7en, this is the type of film that, the less you know about it, the better. It was based on an indie short that all took place in one gross bathroom, but the full-length film has a far more elaborate plot. This franchise unfortunately suffered a bit of Land Before Time syndrome, and it's a shame that a movie this good shares a name with the rest of them.

The Buzz:

     When discussing mockumentaries, most people think about This Is Spinal Tap, Waiting for Guffman, and other films that apply documentary-style filmmaking to fictional, comedic situations, often with the actors at least semi-improvising their performances to keep everything organic. Lunopolis takes the exact same techniques, but applies them to a dark science fiction story, combining “found footage” with “expert interviews” to delve into the mysterious “true story” of a “time-traveling secret society that lives on the moon.” It's like Chariots of the Gods, but with a much more interesting conspiracy and some shakey-cam action scenes mixed in. The end result is a surprisingly suspenseful film, with great performances from all the actors and plenty of fascinating theories that will stick with you, despite the fact that they're entirely made up.

If you remember the early '90s (and if you don't, get off my lawn!), it was a time before every other summer blockbuster was about superheroes. The Christopher Reeve Superman series was but a distant, hokey memory, and Tim Burton's Batman was the only comic book property with any mass appeal. The Shadow is a film adaptation of the enigmatic detective with hypnotic powers from the 1930s, the character who originally inspired the creation of Batman, and it offers more of the dark, psychological, character-driven superhero action that audiences loved in the Burton movies.

...And everybody seems to really hate it, but I have no idea why. The Shadow boasts an impressive cast, sleek design, and high-quality effects, and is set during a fascinating and stylish period of American history. As long as you don't go in expecting just a "run of the mill" comic book movie, The Shadow has quite a lot to offer.

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.
