10 Movies To Watch Before SDCC

Whenever SDCC rolls around, I always feel like I need to play catch up!  This year I'm on the ball with my list of movies to watch before the con that will get us all ready for what is coming in this amazing year of movies!

1. Guardians Of The Galaxy. I was hesitant on it to be honest, but was blown out of the water! This is the best Marvel movie thus far, in my opinion. It will be hard to beat, but I'm sure they will manage!

2. Jurassic Park Trilogy.  One of my all time favorite movies.  I have no problem watching and re-watching this one. Plus now we have Jurassic World too. It is my most anticipated movie of the 2015. I really wish they had done more for this at SDCC 2014.

3. The Star Wars Trilogy. What better way to relive your childhood than to dive back into these movies? With Rouge One coming to screens on December 16th, you can be sure that the biggest nerd franchise off all time will be treating us to an amazing con! Be prepared.

4. Back to the Future. The best time travel series hands down! I love the original, BUT that sequel, could it get any better!? The sequel will forever be one of my favorite movies because you get the best of the first, plus the future. I know everyone bags on the third, but watching all three through at the same time, you get to see so much connection!

5. The Harry Potter Series. With Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them coming out this November, now, or anytime really, is the perfect time to reconnect with a brilliant series.

6. Mad Max. I love dystopian anything so I LOVED the newest Mad Max. It was beautiful. Good story line and tons of action.

7. Avengers. Another home run for the Marvel franchise and with Doctor Strange coming out November 4th, the hype I'm sure, will carry right through to SDCC. The Saturday H Hall Marvel panel is always one for the record books, they know it and always bring it for their fans.

8. Looper.  I LOVED this movie. The future, time travel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, what more could you ask for? Now he is at SDCC with his new Oliver Stone movie Snowden! Check them out on Thursday in H Hall!

9. Independence Day. The original movie is one of my top favorites! Aliens and destruction?! YES please! The newest one Resurgence was just what I wanted it to be! If you as big of a a fan of the original as I am, here are my reasons as to why you must see the sequel!

10. Serenity. A nerd classic. If you already marathoned the show, or haven't, this is the perfect movie to watch before any con! Anytime is a good time for Serenity!

What movies do you find yourself re-watching before a con?!  Share them in the comments below and let's grow this list!!

  3. Great picks! I was kinda sad the only thing they had for Jurassic World was the jeep running around Gaslamp. Here's hoping there will be more this year!

  6. Haha, Guardians of the Galaxy was incredible!! A definite favorite! i was so excited about it when I saw the trailer, the classic music just won me over! Seriously, that movie should get top marks just for its soundtrack!

    So--Guardians is definitely on my list, along with Winter Soldier (LOVE that movie!!), Avengers, Thor--and the first Iron Man. And definitely the Original StarWars! I'm so excited that the new movie is being done with more actual sets than CGI, like the last trilogy. I loved that natural, gritty look of the Original Trilogy.
