BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
You should know the drill by now, but here is the warning anyway: this video contains many, many SPOILERS, people, so if those are your kryptonite you may just want to check out something else on the site.
The Rim trailer is pretty funny. I laughed at the futuristic Altoids that block cancer. But Rim is such a big, fat in-on-the-joke endeavor that it canít be slapped down to size by a few swipes at its ďcredibility.Ē Itís a damn blockbuster about robots punching monsters in the face.
I love how they break down the many ways in which Captain Kirk is a horrible leader, from really failing to protect anything in the universe to replacing Simon Pegg with Anton Yelchin as chief engineer. Fictional characters or no, you always want to keep Pegg by your side. Or at least I do. Platonically.
I honestly havenít watched Superman Returns since my theatrical experience with the film, because I wanted to retain the essence of liking the movie for its ambition without wanting to go ballistic over the ridiculous plot devices that are unrealistic even within a film about Superman.And I got to relive it all.
If you are the kind of person with a blanket hatred for Valentine's Day, you are probably the kind of person with a blanket hatred for The Notebook.

Sam Mendesí installment in the long-running James Bond franchise did get 007 back on his feet after the dismal Quantum of Solace. And it ranks as the highest-grossing Bond film in the franchiseís 50-year history. But that isnít enough to satisfy some nitpickers, which is why the latest Honest Trailer at Screen Junkies puts Bond in its sights.
We've already established that we're big fans of the folks who do Honest Trailers, taking some playful and sometimes sharp jabs at some of the most popular movies by recutting their trailers with an honest voiceover. They do a lot of the trailers by request, and it seems plenty of Tolkien fans were inspired by the upcoming release of The Hobbit
The folks at Screen Junkies have made a name for themselves by creating a series of "honest trailers," which take footage from some of the year's most popular movies and recut them with voiceover that's more truthful (a.k.a. snarkier) than what we were given in the marketing. They do it to movies that really deserve their scorn
So, Avengers isnít flawless. And yes, the stinging criticisms about Iron Man and Captain Americaís popularity in the grand scheme of the Marvel universe are spot on (yet still brutal). But if thereís any director out there who can appreciate the joke, itís Whedon.
