TREASURE PLANET (2002)

Friday, 16 May 2014 04:06

The Buzz: 

        Treasure Planet is one of those Disney movies that many people seem to have nostalgia for, despite practically nobody having actually seen it when it came out. This movie, along with the similarly action-oriented Atlantis: The Lost Empire, was made during a brief period where Disney was experimenting with epic, somewhat gritty animated adventure films involving male leads, as this was before they settled on the massive money-making potential of just slapping princesses all over everything and calling it a day.

THE SECRET OF NIMH (1982)

Friday, 06 September 2013 00:42

The Buzz:

     As I have mentioned before, there was a lack of well-made animation in the early to late 80’s, as the Disney Empire was crumbling under the iron thumb of Michael Eisner and there were virtually no other Americans in the medium.  That is until two lone animators broke off from Disney and decided to create their own studio, based purely off the success of a made-for-TV animation called Banjo: The Woodpile Cat and a hand animated arcade game known as Dragon’s Lair.  They got their funding and released their first full-length picture based off a little-known children’s book.  The film was not a commercial success, but at least for me it is a cult classic and my favorite film of all time.  I give you The Secret of NIMH.

 

THE LITTLE NORSE PRINCE (1968)

Thursday, 06 June 2013 16:38

 The Buzz:

The first animated feature directed by Isao Takahata (Grave of the Fireflies), with an animation crew including the legendary Hayao Miyazaki (pretty much every other anime film you’ve ever heard of), The Little Norse Prince is a magical adventure set in Iron Age Scandinavia, which includes many familiar fantasy tropes but tells a story all its own, realized in subdued but pleasant ‘60s animation. Though it’s less detailed, gritty, and intense than more recent Japanese animation, there’s still plenty of charm and artistry on display that make it worth checking out.

TITAN A.E. (2000)

Tuesday, 19 March 2013 06:12

The Buzz:

     In the distant future earth has used up most of its resources and we are planning a last ditch effort to establish a new colony off-world.  Earth has also pissed off most of the galaxy and so as the colony ship is preparing to launch it is attacked by the Drej, who are an energy based race.  The earth is all but destroyed and the few survivors are either in drifter colonies around the world or all but extinct.  This film was a financial disaster that ended both the career of Don Bluth and closed Fox Animation Studios, but I think it was groundbreaking and tragically ahead of its time.

 

 

 

 

WATERSHIP DOWN (1978)

Friday, 15 March 2013 00:00

The Buzz:

     This film is based off of Richard Adams’ 1972 book and is a truly great film and definitely not meant for children.  The story is based around a group of bunnies that when warned leave their warren to travel to their promised land after one of their number has a vision.  Along the way they experience an amazing journey as well as danger, tragic loss and the truest love.  The final showdown with General Woundwort is terrifying and spellbinding at the same time.  This is one of my favorite films of all time and succeeds as animation mainly because of the lack of a Disney stamp. 

 

 

 

THE ADVENTURES OF MARK TWAIN (1985)

Wednesday, 06 February 2013 02:32

 

 

 

The Buzz:

     The Adventures of Mark Twain chronicles the 100% true and factual story of Samuel Clemen's journey to meet Halley's Comet using a whimsical airship, joined by three stowaway hayseeds named Tom, Huck, and Becky. Their trip provides a framing device for a selection of Twain's short stories, all depicted in brilliant stop-motion animation, and explores some of the more interesting elements of Twain's curmudgeonly personal philosophy.

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.
