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 AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 (2014)

Sunday, 04 May 2014 19:06

The Buzz:

 

     Peter Parker has settled into his role as Spider-Man, but the truth about why his parents abandoned him still haunts him. Now his long time friend, Harry Osborn, is back and finding out he's dying of a rare genetic disorder in which Spider-Man's blood may be the only cure. Additionally a new menace is ravaging the streets of New York and hell bent on Spidey's destruction. What is the price that Parker must pay to be a hero?

THE LEGO MOVIE (2014)

Saturday, 15 February 2014 18:41

The Buzz:

 

     The evil Mr. Business controls all the lands of LEGO. He is obsessed with order and plans to unleash his devastating weapon The Kragle on the world on Taco Tuesday. However, there is a prophecy that a Master Builder will arise to stop him. In comes Emmet, a construction worker who finds the legendary Piece of Resistance that marks him as the one the prophecy spoke of. 

EMPEROR'S NEW GROOVE (2000)

Saturday, 28 September 2013 20:07

The Buzz:

 

     Kuzco is a self centered emperor who is turned into a Llama and forced to become appreciative of the power of friendship in order to get his human body back. Yzma is a power hungry witch who vengefully turns Kuzco into a llama in order to usurp the throne. Kronk is a dim-witted muscle bound lackey of Yzma who secretly struggles with following the orders of a mad woman. Pacha is a simple farmer who just wants to protect his family and village from destruction by the uncaring Kuzco, but is also driven by doing the right thing to help Kuzco get his human form back. All in all a largely stereotypical set of characters in generally predictable plot somehow turn this into a lesser known gem of Disney.

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.

ATLANTIS: THE LOST EMPIRE (2001)

Friday, 22 March 2013 16:34

The Buzz:

        One of those Disney films from our childhood that flopped in the box office, but we all seem to remember fondly, Atlantis follows one Milo Thatch as he seeks to uncover the lost continent from legend. He meets up with an old friend of his grandfather's, who funds his expedition and provides an expert crew of explorers to aid him in his quest.

 

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.
