RYAN’S FIRST SOULS GAME | DEMON’S SOULS

When we discovered that Ryan had never played a Souls game, we knew we had to rectify that.

When Bryan and I found out that Ryan had never played a Souls game before, we wasted no time and made him play the game that started it all – DEMON’S SOULS. Watch him learn about that big gaping hole in the beginning of the game. Watch him discover the “fat roll.” Watch him learn that sometimes you have to die on purpose. Watch things go to complete and utter shit. Watch him create perhaps the derpiest character ever!

 

It will be fun. We promise!

Comic-Con: A Four-Day Love Affair Spanning Sixteen Years

COMIC-CON is a yearly event that holds a special place in my heart, and I’m here to take you on a four-day journey spanning sixteen years!

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Christopher Ortiz, and I have been going to the San Diego Comic-Con for sixteen years. Sixteen years of delightful nerd memories that have taken me on this mysterious journey we call life.

 

“Theme From Jurassic Park,” by John Williams. That’s the song I hear come July when I arrive at the San Diego Convention Center. You know the tune, and you sure as hell know the scene; Sam Neil, Laura Dern, and – nerd God himself – Jeff Goldblum are all sitting in Jeeps waiting to see just what the hell Richard Attenborough is so enthusiastic about, when out of nowhere a dinosaur emerges. They are speechless, filled with wonder at the sight, and we as an audience are right there with them. Words don’t suffice, hence those stunning visuals, and that soul-stirring music.

A Hype To Remember: Trainspotting (1996)

Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose this trailer for Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting, just in time for the sequel!

 

You can’t get much better than the drum beat of “Lust for Life” to kick off a trailer, and it sets the tone for the whole movie. The 90’s were a great time for young, dumb anarchist adventures, before it was a little too close to home, and TRAINSPOTTING set the bar high. Hopefully the filmmakers aged along with their audience, and deliver something meaningful to the current generation in T2!

A Hype To Remember: Dragnet (1987)

Just the facts, ma’am. We’re looking back to a time when Tom Hanks and Dan Aykroyd joined forces to fight crime.

 

It’s been awhile since I’ve seen this film, and I’d like to revisit it again soon. Watching this trailer, I’m struck by how much the marketing for these kinds of movies has changed while remaining largely the same. That said, there’s a sense of goofiness here that has largely disappeared in the modern trailer. Would be lying if I said I wasn’t a little sad about that.

A Hype To Remember: Resident Evil (2002)

Let’s take a walk down memory lane to a time before happiness existed, a time before we knew the fullness of Milla Jovovich’s Resident Evil series.

 

Movie trailers are interesting time capsules that don’t get enough credit for being a commentary on the past. They reflect the perceived notion of what was cool at the time, and almost always feature some kind of visual gag, trope, or thematic element that really drive it home that this movie is “of its time.” Since we’re a podcast about looking at media post-hype, I thought it would be interesting to dig into the ol’ trailer vaults on YouTube and find a piece of cinematic history:
