Come Join Us at Awesome Con on May 30th




This Saturday (30th) at 3:45 pm est, Movie Trailer Reviews will be hosting a panel at Awesome Con.  Kriss will be joined by Justin (Three Fifs Podcast), Phenom (Where's My 40 Acres) & Sterling (Gaming & Then Some) for the "Nostalgia's a....Trips Down Memory Lane" panel.  We'll be going back in time and discussing some of the TV Shows and Movies we grew up on and how things have changed.  Some of the topics you can expect:

  • Why have movies based on Video Games been so bad? We'll go over the extensive list of movies based off of games and discuss what is keeping these movies from getting better. Also, is there a change coming on the horizon like the one that happened with Comic Book Movies. Some of the movies we're discussing:
    • Mortal Kombat
    • Street Fighter
    • Doom
    • Mario Brothers
    • Tomb Raider
    • Double Dragon
    • Silent Hill
    • Resident Evil
    • Wing Commander
    • and more
  • Reboots/Remakes and Sequels/Prequels.  We discuss what makes a reboot vs what makes a remake. Also does a film like Mad Max: Fury Road set the standard for making another movie in a series so long after the original comes out?
    • Terminator
    • Clash of the Titans
    • Poltergeist
    • The Thing
    • Jurassic Park
    • The Alien series
    • RoboCop
    • Mad Max
  • TV Shows and Cartoons we loved growing up.  Are cartoons just not the same as when we grew up? We're also going to talk about all the live action Comic Book shows we're seeing. TV Shows we'll talk about:
    • Transformers
    • GI Joe
    • X-Men
    • Batman the Animated Series
    • Spider-Man the Animated Series
    • Street Sharks
    • Darkwing Duck
    • Swat Kats
  • And finally, we'll talk about comic book movies and how much they've changed.  Remember Nick Fury Agent of Shield starring David Hasselhoff? We do.
    • Superman I & II
    • The Captain America Movies
    • Batman Movies

The movies and TV shows are by no means the only ones we'll be discussing. Our panel will be in Room 141 and will last an hour so we're just going to go with the flow and see how the discussion goes. We look forward to engaging with everyone who comes to the panel so bring your thoughts, questions and lists of movies/TV shows you want to talk about.  This is our first panel at Awesome Con and we're looking forward to having a fun discussion.  Also, after the show around 6 pm we'll be meeting up at Penn Social in DC for drinks. So come out and join us.
