Gravity Gets Weighed Down With This Honest Trailer
No matter how recently you see the film upon which they are based, watching ScreenJunkies’ Honest Trailers is kind of like watching one of your favorite films from childhood as an adult - the nostalgic sheen is washed away by now-obvious plot holes and story problems. The latest film to take the plunge is Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity, one of the most theatrical experiences cinema had to offer in 2013.
Pacific Rim Gets The Honest Trailer Treatment
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 can’t be slapped down to size by a few swipes at its “credibility.” It’s a damn blockbuster about robots punching monsters in the face.
Honest Trailer For Star Trek Into Darkness Points Out The Film's Many, Many Problems
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.
Video Explains Everything Wrong With Superman Returns In Just Under Six Minutes
I honestly haven’t 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.
Honest Trailer For The Notebook: Are Boyfriends Really Being Forced To Watch This?
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. As you might be able to tell I'm neither, since even the sappiest nonsense-- like a giant heart-shaped box of chocolates or Nicholas Sparks-- generally has a thing or two that makes it worthwhile
Skyfall Gets Picked Apart In Latest Honest Trailer
Sam Mendes’ 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 franchise’s 50-year history. But that isn’t enough to satisfy some nitpickers, which is why the latest Honest Trailer at Screen Junkies puts Bond in its sights.
Honest Lord Of The Rings Trailer: It's An 11-Hour New Zealand Tourism Commercial!
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 Dark Knight Rises Honest Trailer: Did Bane's Plan Make Any Sense?
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
Honest Avengers Trailer Playfully Points Out Mistakes
So, Avengers isn’t flawless. And yes, the stinging criticisms about Iron Man and Captain America’s popularity in the grand scheme of the Marvel universe are spot on (yet still brutal). But if there’s any director out there who can appreciate the joke, it’s Whedon.
