How Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Should Have Ended

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 available now on Digital HD and coming soon to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD, you just know the folks at How It Should Have Ended couldn’t resist giving the Marvel Studios sequel a different conclusion.

Though there may not be multiple credits scenes, there are various tangents that the HISHE crew goes on that shake up the kind of trouble our ragtag team of space criminals get themselves into.

Bill Hader as Anthony Scaramucci

Even as a die hard Saturday Night Live fan, I’m not entirely sure that we need a summer edition of Weekend Update for a few weeks before the full 43rd season of the late night sketch series kicks off on September. But after last night’s first episode of Weekend Update: Summer Edition brought back one of the best cast members to ever appear on the show, I’m so glad Colin Jost and Michael Che came back to end the summer with some laughs.

Former cast member Bill Hader made a surprise return to Studio 8H last night, and he brought with him an incredible impression of former White House communications director Anthony Scarmucci, the financier who only worked at the White House for 11 days before being unceremoniously fired from the position before he had even officially started the job.

Alien: Covenant Honest Trailer

This summer brought us Alien: Covenant, but so much time has passed, so many movies have come out since then, and the movie was so subpar that it feels like it could have been years ago. While the movie attempted to get back to the roots of the Alien franchise with a parade of blood and gore brought on by new creatures called neomorphs, which are merely predecessors to xenomorphs, it also went back to the freshman philosophy class roots of Prometheus, making for one confused sci-fi story.

The Alien: Covenant Honest Trailer doesn’t pull any punches when it comes to poking fun at director Ridley Scott‘s latest film, including calling him both one of the greatest and one of the worst filmmakers of our time. And that’s just the beginning. Read More »

Point Break Honest Trailer

This weekend brings the release of Kathryn Bigelow‘s latest film inspired by real life events with the intense drama Detroit. The film takes a timely look at racial tension by shining a light on a police stand-off that happened at the Algiers Motel in the wake of the historic Detroit riots. This comes after Bigelow so intensely captured the danger of being part of a bomb-disposal unit in The Hurt Locker and dramatizing the hunt for Osama Bin Laden in Zero Dark Thirty.

But there was a time when Kathryn Bigelow was just about action and bromance. The movie Point Break is one of the classic action flicks to come out of the 1980s (I say that because even though it came out in 1991, it’s an 80s movie through and through), mostly because you can’t forget a movie that’s about bank robbing surfers led by Patrick Swayze while Keanu Reeves plays a star college athlete turned FBI agent whose been hired to infiltrate the criminal ring. The folks at Honest Trailers have some fun taking jabs at this flick, and it’s pretty sick, brah. Read More »

How Kong: Skull Island Should Have Ended

Right now you can bring Kong: Skull Island home to relive the adventure that brought the giant ape back to the screen in a big way. However, once you start rewatching the movie over and over again, you might start to notice some of the logical fallacies that lie within. Hell, you might have already noticed some of them the first time around. But at least they didn’t make the sci-fi adventure any less fun to watch. In fact, the folks at How It Should Have Ended used some of these leaps in logic to deliver another episode that shows us some of the many alternate routes Kong: Skull Island could have taken.

Ghost in the Shell Honest Trailer

There was plenty of controversy stirring around Paramount Pictures’ adaptation of the anime Ghost in the Shell. Most of it was because of the continued whitewashing of source material, but aside from that large complaint, the movie really just wasn’t all that remarkable. Even if the lead weren’t played by white Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson, it would still have been quite the disappointing adaptation of a beloved piece of anime.

That means it’s time for Screen Junkies to do their worst by delivering the Honest Trailer for Ghost in the Shell, pointing out all the places it went wrong, and somehow only clocking in around four minutes.

Star Wars with Arrested Development Narration

Though Ron Howard may best be known for his time spent as a child actor playing young Opie Taylor on The Andy Griffith Show, he’s also very well known for directing films such Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind and The Da Vinci Code. Soon he’ll be known for taking over the Star Wars spin-off that is focusing on a young Han Solo after directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller were let go from the production following creative differences.

But Ron Howard was also the executive producer of the comedy series Arrested Development, not to mention the show’s narrator, adding an interesting meta layer to the cult favorite show that was canceled by FOX before being revived years later by Netflix. Now some clever editing has taken some of Ron Howard’s voiceover from Arrested Development and applied it to the original Star Wars trilogy giving us Arrested Rebellion. Read More »

Memento Honest Trailer

With Dunkirk hitting theaters this weekend, everyone is talking about the filmography of director Christopher Nolan. That’s why Screen Junkies has taken aim at the filmmaker’s breakthrough film Memento for their latest edition of Honest Trailers, and they’ve taken a cue from the narrative style of the film to structure their video.

Bill Murray ESPYs Speech

Yes, this is still a film blog. No, we’re not drunk. But when Bill Murray and Nick Offerman get together to continue celebrating the World Series victory that the Chicago Cubs earned back in the fall of 2016 after 108 years of waiting for the title, how can we ignore it?

Both the Ghostbusters star and the Parks and Recreation man for all seasons are lifelong Chicago Cubs fans, so it’s only appropriate that the two comedy stars were part of the acceptance speech when the baseball team won Best Moment at the 2017 ESPY Awards on ABC last night. After a touching recollection of that final play that happened in extra innings, presenter Nick Offerman giggles like an excited boy and hands the award off to Bill Murray, pretending (?) to be drunk while paying tribute to the team that he’s loved since he was a boy.
