Tanner Reviews Jem and the Holograms

Jem_Movie_Teaser_PosterAnyone who was a kid during the mid 80’s and early 90’s will remember the Saturday Morning Cartoons. They were the celebration of every kids day. We all had our favorites: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, He Man, GI Joe: The Great American Hero, and of course my favorite Transformers. I was born at the tail end of the 80’s so most of these TV Shows I watched thanks to some friends of mine who would lend me their VHS tapes. But man, I loved everything about that 80’s animation style and all the coolness that came with it as they tried to sell me shit.

Just to keep in mind these lists are my own personal opinion based on the hype of the masses and how much attention, both positive and negative these games and movies will receive in 2015. Keep in mind THIS LIST IS NOT ITEMS I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING! That is a completely different list. This list is a collection of games and movies that I feel will cause quite a stir when they are released and are something, as the title suggests that we should keep an eye on as we march forward into the new year. Also keep in mind when it comes to video games that the game does not have to be released in 2015 but can be a rerelease or a remastering to make the list. With that being said, let’s start with the video games. Continue reading “Ten Movies and Video Games to Keep an Eye on for 2015”
