THE FP (2011)

Thursday, 06 February 2014 20:46

THE BUZZ

     In a post-apocalyptic wasteland, gangs vie for control of Frazier Park (abbreviated as titular The FP) through a brutal blood sport much akin to the thunderdome. Except instead of any real blood sport, it’s a dance game called Beat-Beat Revolution. After his brother BTRO gets literally served to death by a rival gang’s superior performance, JTRO (played by writer and director Jason Trost) leaves the FP. However, a year later, the park is in shambles due to the evil gang’s malevolent rule, and JTRO must return to save the day and serve up some white-hot BBR revenge. Featuring awesome sets, insanely high BPM techno, good costuming, and ……..odd humor, this film was ignored by many, shat on by a bunch of critics, and watched by few. But fuck the haters, this movie is awesome, and you should watch it.

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.

SILENT HILL (2006)

Friday, 27 September 2013 14:36

The Buzz

     Christophe Gans (writer and director of Brotherhood of the Wolf) directs a highly atmospheric movie version of the first game in the highly successful Silent Hill series. A mother (Radha Mitchell) takes her daughter (somebody with a name) with severe mental issues to an abandoned town in western Pennsylvania to try to fix her; it turns out to be a fairly bad decision. There is also a subplot about Mitchell’s husband (Sean Bean) trying to find where they went, which explains a lot of the backstory and is helpful to the audience, but is largely unnecessary. If you’re a very serious horror fan or a fan of the series, this can be a very entertaining way to spend over two hours, but if you’re looking to get your party moving, the long runtime and bizarrely graphic violence may not be what you’re looking for. However, if this type of mood horror, graphic violence, and lack of jump-at-you scares is the type of film that really pushes your horror buttons, Silent Hill may end up being one of your favorites that way it ended up being one of mine.

SHOOT 'EM UP (2007)

Monday, 18 February 2013 16:59

The Buzz

     Clive Owen, Paul Giamatti, and Monica Belluci star in a hyperviolent stylized conspiracy looney toon about a drifter and a hooker protecting a baby as they attempt to elude hitmen and government agents. This may not sound special initially, but don’t let the innocuous description fool you. The level of self-awareness, sharp humor, and jaw-droppingly badass visuals make this movie absolutely essential viewing for anyone who’s ever raised a glass to cinema.

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.
