‘Tis the season to blow #$% up…and Action A Go Go wants to show you how!
By Troy-Jeffrey Allen
It is officially summer movie season, and those endless movie trailers may look awfully appetizing but they can be very, very misleading. Thank goodness for Action A Go Go…
On Saturday, May 30th, the city of Washington, DC is going to be injected with a healthy dose of AWESOME courtesy of Awesome Con, one of the east coast’s biggest comic conventions! Last year, Action A Go Go hosted a panel titled “How to Make Movies The Marvel Way” and we want carry that tradition on into 2015. At this year’s Awesome Con we are broadening our scope to focus on the 2015 summer movie season. Titled “How To Survive The Summer Movies Season Of 2015,” this panel will be hosted by CJ of the 3 Black Geeks podcast. Joining CJ will be Action A Go Go’s Andrew Allen and Derek Scarzella as well as 3BG’s Dwain Shaw!
This time around, our goal is to help the audience navigate the sweltering heat of the summer blockbuster. With so many movies dropping into your local cineplex on a weekly basis, it is nearly impossible to separate the hype from the highly entertaining.
However, Action A Go Go isn’t going to just sit there and lecture you about what you should and shouldn’t watch (that’s what Rotten Tomatoes is for, y’all), we also want to hear from you the audience. What are you excited about, what are you avoiding like the plague, and what have we neglected to zero in on that deserves a look? Action A Go Go wants you!
