DIVERGENT (2014)

Saturday, 29 March 2014 02:24

The Buzz:

     In a dystopian future, survival means conforming to a new set of social rules. The human population is divided into factions that keep people separate depending on their temperament. In this world, keeping human nature coordinated and separate, the largest inclinations towards anarchy are tempered. Beatrice Prior takes the ritual test that all people must, in order to find out her true place in the civilization. Unfortunately, that test does not work as intended…

BREEDERS (1986)

Saturday, 23 November 2013 21:43

The Buzz:

 

     An alien crashes in to earth accompanied by a what appears to be Two-Face reincarnated as a woman… and a stripper. Crashing in the courtyard of an all girl’s school and setting up a lair in what appears to be the abandoned sex dungeon of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the alien begins abducting the students of the school with the intent of using them to reproduce to take over the planet!

 

 

The Buzz:

        This computer-animated sci-fi film brings us into the world of the 41st millennium, based on the immensely popular Warhammer 40K game world created by Games Workshop. A detachment of space marines, gene-engineered super-soldiers (before you groan, these were pretty much the original such sci-fi staple, and most of the other examples you may know take their inspiration from this universe) from the Ultramarines chapter are sent on a mission to answer a distress beacon from a shrine-world guarded by their brothers-in-arms, the Imperial Fists.

 

PACIFIC RIM (2013)

Saturday, 13 July 2013 00:00

The Buzz:

        In the near future, humanity is facing its greatest enemy ever, giant monsters, called Kaiju, who make Godzilla look like a level one Pokémon. In response the nations of the world have banded together to create a force of giant robots, called Jaegers, to take on these monsters from the deep. Humanity is on the brink of extinction, and it's down to the final battle between monster and machine.

 

The Buzz:

        The Federation's war against the bugs continues in this sequel to 1997's Starship Troopers. A band of troopers have become stranded at an abandoned outpost after their operation goes pear-shaped. Inside they find Cap. Dax, who's been locked up and left behind after murdering his commanding officer. But soon the troopers have to rely on his help, as it turns out they have more than just the bugs outside the fence to worry about.

 

THE THING (1982)

Monday, 15 April 2013 02:06

The Buzz:

     The cold makes for terrible pains in the joints and bad driving in the snow, but also it lends itself to amazing sci-fi/horror.  A small team of men in the artic are interrupted one day by a bunch of Norwegian men in a helicopter seemingly hunting a malamute.  The American camp takes in the dog and unwittingly lets something horrible into the rest of their short lives.  After the dog literally peels apart like a banana and assimilates other beings.  One by one the people at the camp become “things” and paranoia takes the place of good sense and one of the best horror films ever made ensues.

 

 

 

TANKED MATINEE TREMORS MARATHON!

Thursday, 04 April 2013 08:15

   

 

     I wish to preface this Marathon Review by saying that this started out as having a drink and re-watching one of my favorite goofy sci-fi films.  My life was then transformed when I saw Netflix had all of the sequels as well, I figured “what the hell” and went for it.  What follows is the culmination of just a shade over six hours of viewing and the gruesome murder of two six packs and a little bit of moonshine.  Follow me on this journey of soul searching, finding the meaning of life, and farting on the couch and I mean a lot of that!  I proudly bring you a Tanked Matinee Marathon of the Tremors films.

 

 

STARSHIP TROOPERS (1997)

Thursday, 28 February 2013 00:57

 

The Buzz:  

     Starship Troopers, directed by Paul Verhoeven, was a military sci-fi flick made in 1997. As the human federation expands its military control, they lock horns with aliens from the planet Klendathu.  Johnny Rico (Casper Van Dien) is a high school student on Earth who has his heart set on being a citizen, something only those with military service can claim. After joining the mobile infantry, the bugs launch an attack on Earth and destroy Rico’s home town.  The movie follows Rico’s rise up in the mobile infantry, and the fight against the bugs!

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.
