In The Hobbit's Honest Trailer, Even Its Own Characters Are Bored By It

With the last of the three Hobbit movies coming out today, Honest Trailers turned its keen eye on the one that came out this time last year, The Desolation of Smaug. It had not occurred to us just how much of the second movie was made up of flashbacks to the first one. But now, Thorin's statement that "This is taking… » 12/17/14 4:30am Wednesday 4:30am

Honest Trailers Finds That, In Retrospect, The Little Mermaid Is Creepy

While the crew at Screen Junkies hits all the points many, many people have found objectionable over the years, they also found a few new ones. Like: Why are some sea creatures full characters and others beasts of burden? And: "Les Poissons" is actually the scariest song in the movie. » 11/18/14 9:00pm 11/18/14 9:00pm

Honest Trailers Remembers How Disappointing X-Men: The Last Stand Was

Getting in just before Days of Future Past (the "prequel-sequel hybrid reboot") comes to movie screens, the team at Screen Junkies reminds us how it went the last time the movie series attempted to do justice to an epic comics storyline. There was a lot of staring in The Last Stand. A lot. » 5/20/14 8:00pm 5/20/14 8:00pm

Honest Trailers reveals Gravity is an epic tale of bumping into stuff

You know you can still mock good movies, right? That's why Honest Trailers chose Gravity — a film they clearly genuinely like — for its newest installment. It's still just as funny as when they take on crap like Batman & Robin. And besides, now we know Gravity would be even better with pinball sound effects. » 2/18/14 8:00pm 2/18/14 8:00pm

Man of Steel discovers Honest Trailers is its own kind of kryptonite

We've had some fun with Man of Steel... and now that the movie has hit DVD and Blu-ray today, I see no reason to stop now. Honest Trailers works their magic on Superman's latest outing, and even the most strident of the film's defenders should get a laugh out of the dubstep doomsday machine. » 11/12/13 12:57pm 11/12/13 12:57pm

Honest Trailers aims its phasers at Star Trek Into Darkness

It's been a long time anybody has mentioned that Star Trek Into Darkness is not, in fact, a very good movie, so thanks to the Honest Trailers guys for getting this important message back out there. Looking back, I have no idea why we thought a movie that didn't have the sense to use a colon would be okay. » 8/20/13 3:30pm 8/20/13 3:30pm

Honest Trailers takes on its easiest, greatest target: Batman & Robin

"Shooting fish in a barrel" is a phrase that has a negative connotation, implying that it's too easy to shoot fish which are trapped in such a contained space. But what if the fish really have it coming? Find out as the Honest Trailers guys work their magic on the most anemic of opponents, Batman and Robin! » 7/31/13 1:40pm 7/31/13 1:40pm

Honest Trailers points out the horrible danger of actually thinking…

When I mentioned earlier today in the DVD and Blu-ray listings that I had no real desire to watch The Dark Knight Rises again, I have to wonder if Honest Trailers - with a bit of help from the Red Letter Media guys - haven't figured out why. I mean, DKR wrapped up the trilogy well and was exciting and everything, but… » 12/04/12 2:00pm 12/04/12 2:00pm

After a Nation Rejoices at Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Honest…


Now that Bella has married Edward, become a vampire, had a creepy CG baby and given that baby to a teenage werewolf that wants to have sex with it (...eventually) in this weekend's Breaking Dawn Part Deux, we thought it was important to take a look back at how far we've come since a young, white blob first fell in… » 11/19/12 3:09pm 11/19/12 3:09pm
