Welcome to TRN Game Night! Several members of The Retro Network team are coming together to face off in a fun new series of podcasts. In this episode we introduce Pop Culture Clash, a knockout style trivia game to see who will be left standing after answering several rounds of brain-teasing pop culture questions.

Clashing in this podcast will be Kevin (@teamhellions), Stacey (@geeky_vixen), and Adam (@hojukoolander) with Jason (@RD80s) serving as the host. We'll be using questions from the 80s Scene It? board game which includes three categories: "Take Three", "Songs Slogans, and Sayings", and "Pop Culture." Listen to see who will win and receive the illustrious "Falco Championship Belt" (named during the show.)

SequelQuest Rewind | A 3rd Burton Batman | EP64

June 27, 2019

SequelQuest Rewind | A 3rd Burton Batman | EP64

Tim Burton redefined Batman for a generation with his 1989 summer blockbuster adventure starring Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson. 3 years later Keaton and Burton were back with the bizarre Batman Returns, a dark fairy tale that was controversial for its time, leading to the imaginative filmmaker abandoning plans for a Batman 3.

In Burton’s absence, Joel Schumacher gave us Batman Forever in 1995 and the less said about Batman & Robin the better. But what if Burton had been able to complete his trilogy? It’s a question many have wondered about and now SequelQuest is ready to provide some answers by travelling to an alternate Summer 1995 where Tim Burton’s Batman 3 took theaters by storm.

Join Adam, Jeff, Jeramy and returning guest host, Michael Cannetti as they present exciting ideas for the continuing adventures of the caped crusader on the big screen.

Imagine Batman finally facing Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face, the return of Christopher Reeve for a team up between cinema’s mightiest heroes, Catwoman bringing Batgirl along for the ride and even a modern day Tim Burton and Michael Keaton coming back for a live action Batman Beyond film.

SequelQuest has got our turbines to speed to revive Bat-Mania in a big way, so follow the bat-signal and join the fun!

SequelQuest Rewind | A Ghostbusters Franchise Sequel | EP22

SequelQuest Rewind | A Ghostbusters Franchise Sequel | EP22

Who you gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS! The Paul Feig directed reboot featuring an all female cast is hitting theaters soon and creating lots of controversy in the meantime. Whether or not you’re a fan of Saturday Night Live stars like Kristin Wiig, Kate McKinnon or comedy icon, Melissa McCarthy you can’t deny the fun of having Ghostbusters back in theaters and merchandise on store shelves.

For years we were teased by Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman with a never produced follow-up film aka Ghostbusters 3 re-uniting Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Rick Moranis and the late, Harold Ramis. Now SequelQuest is making those dreams a reality!

We’re charging our proton packs and jumping back in to the world of professional paranormal extermination with Venkman, Stantz, Spengler and Zeddemore, imagining what the next adventure of favorite funny ghost hunters could be.

So listen in as Jeff, Jeramy and Adam share their ideas for Ghostbusters 3. Will it meet your expectations? Will the original Ghostbusters pass on the mantle or just keep repeating to themselves, “Bustin’ makes me feelgood!”

But wait, there’s more! This also marks our first video podcast. Yep, we’ll scare the pants off you by showing our ugly mugs and some other fun tricks on YouTube. So click here to watch the full show now, if you dare!

SequelQuest | SequelChat Review of DARK PHOENIX | EP103

20th Century Fox has brought their nearly 20 year X-Men film franchise to an end with Dark Phoenix. Bringing Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, James Macavoy and Michael Fassbender back for one more adventure after X-Men: Apocalypse had the potential to be a fitting end, but did it pay off?

Join Adam, Jeramy and Colton as they discuss their thoughts on this adaptation of the mutant milestone The Dark Phoenix saga to determine how Sophie Turner measures up to the original portrayal of Dark Phoenix by Famke Janssen and if this Jean Grey story succeeds where X-Men: The Last Stand failed.

SequelQuest | A Sequel to BIRD BOX | EP102

June 6, 2019

SequelQuest-BirdBoxSequel-1350x760-featu

SequelQuest | A Sequel to BIRD BOX | EP102

The Netflix original film Bird Box starring Sandra Bullock was a worldwide phenomenon in 2018 that proclaimed to be the most viewed film in history. This intense horror movie even inspired a brief and ultimately dangerous trend of Bird Box Challenge videos where people attempted to walk, cook and even drive while blindfolded. Despite the controversy, the film remains well regarded and yet no sequel has been announced. That’s where we come in.

Join the SequelQuest Crew of Adam, Jeff and Jeramy as we pitch our ideas for a Bird Box Sequel. What could be next for Sandra Bullock’s Malorie and the world of blind survivalists? Will it be a tale of Boy and Girl all grown up to take on all comers as blind fighting survivors in a world gone crazy? Perhaps a chilling spin-off prequel telling the tale of Charlie’s co-worker, Fish Fingers? The ideas come fast and free in our first podcast episode on The Retro Network, so listen now!
