Make Mine MANT!

Hold on to your popcorn, because Matinee (1993) is the Greatest Movie EVER?

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring “Celebrity Translator” Neil Nadelman.

Review in a Nutshell: Awash in nostalgia and soaked in the anxiety of the threat of Cold War era nuclear annihilation, Matinee (1993) is a film oddity and a loving tribute to the oeuvre of master movie marketer William Castle.

  1. I love this thing, flawed though it is. It’s very good execution of a fantastic idea, doesn’t quite reach full potential but what’s there is worth looking for. I especially like when our socially aware parents are stepping out of the theater with utterly confused looks and asking each other “why did we think seeing that was a good thing?” Reminded me of my parents when I was young and me in my movie-devouring college days. Eventually you learn how to support things without having to throw yourself on every grenade..

  2. I clicked on my feed super quick when I read Manatee then I heard them say Matinee. Those high expectations were impossible to be met but still enjoyable podcast.

    Also, we need a horror movie about a killer manatee now
