Mike’s Favorite Movie Trailers of the Decade (70-61)

While I call movie posters a lost art, trailers are a different beast altogether. They’ve definitely evolved over the years, and in a way, they’re getting better the more time goes on. Trailers 40 years ago were so much different than they are now. The way people sell a film is different now. Posters are just about imagery, but trailers have to show you what you’re in store for without giving away everything. Though, there is some artistry to that as well, since I think we can all agree that a lot of times, you can understand what the entire plot of a movie is gonna be just from a trailer. But once in a while, you get something really nice, where it’s cut real well and it makes you excited for the film without giving too many secrets away.

I track my favorite trailers each year, so now I’m gonna look back over the past decade and see which ones have held up best for me.

Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #115 – “Waiting for My Moment,” from Creed

 

115. “Waiting for My Moment,” from Creed

They had to do something to fit the ‘Gonna Fly Now’ sequence to the Creed character. This isn’t the main one, but it’s an offshoot of that. They sound remarkably similar, because they’re based off the same core song. But this one’s more of a ‘remix’ kind of song, that goes more beat heavy, and has Donald Glover on it. Not my preferred of the two, but also pretty solid.
