THE AMERICAN ASTRONAUT (2001)

Tuesday, 17 December 2013 20:38

THE BUZZ

     The frontman of Billy Nayer Show (to quote Wikipedia, a New York musical group of questionable genre) made a truly bizarre monochrome quasi-space western musical noir comedy drama adventure. With original music by the band organically fit into the (for lack of a better word) movie, this flick provides viewers with a surreal, almost nonsensical, definitely unusual experience for those curious enough to watch it and lucky enough to find it. It’s currently on Netflix, but who knows how long that could be for. I’m a huge fan of strange movies; this is the weirdest fucking movie I’ve seen since Taxidermia. I’ll attempt to summarize, just so I can say I tried: Samuel Curtis (a guy who’s a lot like Lone Star from Space Balls) gets hired to take The Boy Who Actually Saw a Woman’s Breast from Jupiter, the Planet of Men to Venus, the Planet of Women so that he can mate with them. All the while being chased by his arch-nemesis Professor Hess, a thrill-killer who can’t kill Curtis because Hess has an unspecified problem with Curtis. Yeah, that’s the best I can do. It’s so goddamned weird.

POOTIE TANG (2001)

Thursday, 11 July 2013 01:02

The Buzz:

     Originally based on a sketch from The Chris Rock Show, Pootie Tang is a blaxploitation film with turn-of-the-millenium style and sensibilities. It chronicles the tale of jive-talking musician/ladies' man/crime-fighter/all-around nice guy Pootie Tang, who uses the magical whuppin' belt left to him by his father, Daddie Tang, to clean up the streets and defend inner city children from the depredations of Corporate America. Have you seen Black Dynamite? If you didn't like it, we have nothing further to discuss. If you did like it, Pootie Tang is basically Black Dynamite if it were written and directed by Louis CK. That's right, Louis CK made a blaxploitation movie, in 2001, and you should totally watch it.

PITCH PERFECT (2012)

Saturday, 29 June 2013 20:21

The Buzz: 

     Beca (Anna Kendrick) is a college not-so-rebel with a love of music and designs to move to LA to be a big producer, but her father (a professor) insists she must give college one good year before he'll consider sending her out to try her hand at her dream. After getting roped into the local all female A Cappella group they struggle to beat their rivals at the national championships.

 

THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (2004)

Thursday, 14 March 2013 17:16

The Buzz:

Andrew Lloyd Webber's 1986 stage adaptation of The Phantom of the Opera has become an iconic love story, synonymous with romance, beauty, and fantasy in the hearts of countless women. This is actually a real shame, because from a man's perspective, Phantom can basically be summed up as "Friend Zone - The Musical." It's the story of a smart, talented guy with lots of cool hobbies who provides years of kindness and support to the girl he's into, but is forsaken in favor of some rich pretty boy, merely because he just happens to be hideous to look upon, lives in a basement, and is not, technically, employed.*

[* Editor's Note: Not that I'm bitter or anything.]

But, close to home as this story may hit for some guys who are definitely not me, the 2004 movie version is still a beautiful, if controversial, retelling of arguably the most important show of its theatrical generation (or however theater time is measured... epochs, maybe?). For those of you who enjoy music, pagaentry, and romance, but can't spring for tickets to a Broadway revival, this film is absolutely worth seeing.

LES MISERABLES (2012)

Sunday, 03 March 2013 16:58

The Buzz:

     A musical taking place in the early 19th century Paris, we follow Jean Valjean in his struggle for redemption through the adoption of young Cosette. Meanwhile, he is tracked by Inspector Javert for crimes past and swept up into the French Rebellion.

 

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.
