2016 is bringing us spin-offs, sequels, and prequels. Which is normal nowadays for major studios to fight over the mighty geek dollar. This year on the other hand is a little different, this year we have many movies that are going to be pulling on the nostalgia strings of a lot of parents that are looking to take their kids to the theaters.

Yes, last year had its share of movies that took parents back to their younger days, or even made some parents (like myself) younger than they already feel.

This year's line up is a little more packed with the 80's, 90's and early 2000's in mind. Here is a partial list of the movies in 2016 that has parents a little more excited than their kids:

This is just my list of movies that have and/or should have parents very happy to go to the movies this year.

Any parent between the ages of 25-45 and even as far as 50 could look at this list and could not help to think how their Saturday morning cartoons, comic books, novels and video games are all coming to life. How good they will be is yet to be known, but we know that's really not going to stop many people from going out and enjoying these movies with their kids and significant other.

So enjoy 2016 Generation-X and Millennium babies!
