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:

Friday the 13th Series Ranked

Since movies began filmmakers have been trying to scare the pants off us.

First with a train, then with a gun pointed directly at the camera, and later with a young man or woman pitted against a larger than life monster.  As these movies play out, people die, people fall in love, then die, and a hero arises, and maybe dies.  With main characters dropping left and right, producers quickly realized, people are coming more for the bad guy than the good and then… Great horror icons are born!

 

Through the years we’ve seen many villains come and go, yet, only a select few never fade away.  One in particular has steadily walked his way into nearly all forms of mass media.  After twelve movies, twenty some books, a TV series, countless comic book appearances, and one hugely anticipated video game, Jason Voorhees has sliced and diced his way into the hearts of millions of fans.  No matter how many different places Jason slaughters those pesky teenagers, movies are where he shines brightest.  Not all are masterpieces, one or two might be horrible, but they all have something special, something new to offer.  So I present to you, my ranking of the Friday the 13th franchise.
