While on the publicity tour for Deadpool 2, the film’s co-star Ryan Reynolds and Josh Brolin stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden to have some fun with a a parody of the classic western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Fifty Shades Freed Honest Trailer

Because sometimes the universe is merciful, the erotic film franchise that began with Fifty Shades of Grey and unfortunately continued with Fifty Shades Darker finally came to an end with Fifty Shades Freed earlier this year. The sequel certainly arrived with far less pomp and circumstance than the first film adapting the laughable writing of author E.L. James, but the folks at Honest Trailers were sure to give the franchise a proper send-off by not only mocking the final installment, but also looking back at the most ludicrous moments of this supposedly sexy trilogy.

Star Wars with Arrested Development Narration

Ron Howard has a history with George Lucas that goes all the way back to the director’s early work on a coming of age drama called American Graffiti. But it would take another 45 years before Ron Howard would become enveloped in the filmmaker’s most famous creation: the Star Wars universe.

Solo: A Star Wars Story brought in Ron Howard to take the helm of the Han Solo origin story after the young duo of Phil Lord & Chris Miller didn’t deliver what Lucasfilm was hoping to see out of the spin-off. To further immerse himself in the Star Wars universe, Ron Howard took the time to provide some of his signature Arrested Development voiceover for the Star Wars saga. Read More »

Honest Trailers Honest Trailer

While we’re supremely against all the nonsense that Cinema Sins puts forth in their recurring video series, we appreciate what the folks at ScreenJunkies put forth every week with their Honest Trailers. At the very least, they’re clever in their humorous observations about critiques, plot holes and we love the new title they give to all their targets.

But now, Honest Trailers has turned the gun on themselves to deliver an Honest Trailer of Honest Trailers. Of course, since the writers behind these videos can’t be trusted to really let themselves have it, they commissioned Botnik Labs to create a magical computer program that analyzed every single Honest Trailer script and generated the Honest Trailer in question. It has all the tropes, styles, and themes of your average Honest Trailer and it is weird and hilarious. Read More »

An Emmy for Megan

The Emmy is a coveted award among television talents both in front of and behind the camera, but there are varying levels of Emmys among the various kinds of media out there. One of the Emmy categories created by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences rewards short-form series, which basically allows any Tom, Dick or Harry to be eligible (though not necessarily deserving) for an Emmy with an iPhone, some basic editing software and a decent internet connection at their disposal.

The Good Place writer Megan Amram is hoping to win an Emmy in that category by adhering to the rules of eligibility for that category as close as possible with a new web series called An Emmy for Megan, which is all about Megan Amram trying to win an Emmy for Best Actress in a Short Form Series.
