If you’re looking for a film that accurately depicts the creation of Facebook, it’s not The Social Network. But if you’re looking for a sharply written drama that defines the generation who is living on the internet, then David Fincher‘s drama scripted by Aaron Sorkin is just the ticket.
Still, just because The Social Network was nominated for Best Picture does not make it safe from the folks at Screen Junkies, who decided to mock the film in an Honest Trailer in honor of this week’s release of The Circle starring Tom Hanks. You also might be surprised to learn how many laptops were broken in the scene where Andrew Garfield smashes Jesse Eisenberg‘s computer.

Next month will bring a new chapter of the Alien franchise to the big screen with Ridley Scott back behind the camera for Alien: Covenant. The film is both a sequel to Prometheus and a prequel to Alien, and there are apparently several more stories left to tell in between.
The new line-up of Alien films forced Neill Blomkamp to cancel his alternate sequel that would have brought back Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley, but that movie seems to be on the backburner indefinitely. Thankfully, someone else was able to give us our fix of Ellen Ripley, albeit in the form of a comedy sketch where she has some trouble getting proper healthcare from The Late Show host Stephen Colbert after all the xenomorph encounters she’s had over the years.

The Silence of the Lambs is an unsettling thriller for a number of reasons. Not only is Buffalo Bill a horrifying psychopath, but perhaps more unnerving is the relationship that builds between FBI agent Clarice Starling and Dr. Hannibal Lecter, one that feels like it’s on the verge of being uncomfortably erotic. But what if there was a way to make that element of the movie a little less creepy, perhaps even charming?
The folks at CineFix put together a trailer remix of The Silence of the Lambs that paints it as a harmless, mature romantic comedy. Surprisingly, it works rather well, even if Anthony Hopkins is still a bit of a creep when he talks to Jodie Foster.

New episodes from Mystery Science Theater 3000 are now available on Netflix. But since this is a show that first rose to fame in the 1990s and then disappeared at the turn of the century, some audiences who aren’t familiar with the show might need a proper introduction to the series that mocks some of the worst movies ever made. To help give Netflix subscribers a taste of what MST3K has to offer, they had Jonah Ray and his robot pals Tom Servo and Crow sit down to take some jabs at Netflix’s hit sci-fi series Stranger Things, and it’s just as great as you’d hope.

Under normal circumstances, the folks who put together the ongoing web series How It Should Have Ended offers an amusing, welcome perspective on how a popular blockbuster should have ended. Sometimes it’s based on walking through a major plot hole, other times it just points out something that doesn’t make sense. In this case though, they had their work cut out for them in trying to poke holes in and even poke fun at the perfect ending of Logan. However, I must say that what they came up with is actually pretty clever, and Deadpool is just a small fraction of it.

HBO’s comedy series Girls is nearing an end to its sixth and final season. We’re not sure where the stories of Hannah (Lena Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke) and Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) will end up, but we won’t have to wait for long. Though this is the final season of the show, Lena Dunham has said that she would love to bring these characters back for a movie, but not until enough time has passed for them to be in a completely different place in their lvies.
That brings us to one Girls project that’s even further down the road. In honor of the final season of Girls, the folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live decided to round up the four stars of the HBO series to put together a pilot for an update of The Golden Girls, featuring Hannah, Marnie, Jessa and Shoshanna living together like Bea Arthur, Betty White, Rue McClanahan and Estelle Getty did in the original version of the series.

Next week brings us The Fate of the Furious, the eighth installment of the surprisingly long-running action franchise from Universal Pictures. The fact that we’ve come this far in the film series is impressive, especially when you look back at the film that nearly killed it all: The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.
While the third sequel in the franchise that started out with Paul Walker and Vin Diesel in their own street racing version of Point Break removed almost everything fans liked about the first two movies, it did feature some pretty badass car action sequences. But still, as Honest Trailers points out, that’s not enough to save it from the Southern robot that is Lucas Black.

Since it was April Fools’ Day over the weekend, a lot of stupid things happened on the internet. Thankfully, the prankster holiday wasn’t all garbage with Adult Swim having a surprise debut of the third season premiere of Rick and Morty. But when it comes to online jokes, College Humor may have taken the cake.
If you’ve spent any time reading about movies online, then you’ve probably heard about people claiming to have vivid memories of a movie called Shazam starring Sinbad as a genie. Your immediate thought may be that the movie they’re thinking of is called Kazaam, and it didn’t star Sinbad, but rather NBA star Shaquille O’Neal. But somehow there are still people who legitimately think they’ve seen this movie. Well, College Humor made them all honest by unearthing footage from this lost movie that never actually existed, featuring none other than the real Sinbad himself.

Michael Myers is one of the most iconic names in horror, but there’s a chance that a fanmade edit of the first trailer for the new adaptation of Stephen King’s It might turn former Saturday Night Live cast member Mike Myers into an even more terrifying figure.
If the first trailer for It wasn’t already scary enough with the haunting clown Pennywise lurking in the sewer and appearing in a slideshow with that creepy smile of his, imagine how much more frightening it is with Mike Myers’ version of The Cat in the Hat.

This week brought the Harry Potter spin-off prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to Blu-ray and DVD, so fans can repeatedly watch what is intended to the first of a total of five movies that is intended to lead up to the famous wizard duel between Albus Dumbledore and the dark wizard Grindelwald.
The bad news is that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a rough start for this new franchise as the world of magic in the United States from decades ago is filled with mostly boring characters and a story that has quite the contrived connection to the rest of the Harry Potter universe. That makes it ripe for some jokes from the folks at Honest Trailers.
