The Emoji Movie Honest Trailer

When it comes to Honest Trailers, there are plenty of jokes made at the expense of the movies, even those that are largely considered to be great. But these movie mocking videos are the most fun when the movie at the center of the Honest Trailer is downright terrible. That’s why we’re happy to see The Emoji Movie Honest Trailer.

Described as “Taco Bell through a human centipede” right out of the gate, The Emoji Movie doesn’t stand a chance against the cavalcade of gut punches dished out to this wholly dumb animated movie. Read More »

Batman Forever Honest Trailer

Justice League hits theaters this coming weekend, bringing us Ben Affleck‘s take on Batman again as he rounds up the DC Comics superhero team on the big screen for the first time ever. But it was a long road to get here with a couple sizeable speed bumps courtesy of director Joel Schumacher.

After Batman Returns got a little too dark, gothic and kinky for parents taking their kids to see the new Batman movie, Warner Bros. dulled things down by shifting into a more ludicrous gear with Batman Forever. Watch as Honest Trailers takes on the beginning of the end of the 1990s era of Batman, including Bat nipples and a perpetually open-mouthed Val Kilmer.

jimmy kimmel superhero trailer

There’s nothing like having super friends to make you a special superhero movie trailer based on a comic book you wrote when you were a 10-year-old nerd.

That’s what a flushed Jimmy Kimmel received on his 50th birthday, courtesy of Ben Affleck (his on-and-off boyfriend and actual superhero actor in the upcoming Justice League) and J.J. Abrams. They teamed up with a slew of familiar actors and comedians to create the ultimate superhero team: the Terrific Ten. The Terrific Ten are an invention of 10-year-old Kimmel’s mind, only existing on the worn-out pages of a comic book drawn by the prepubescent talk show host. Until last night.

Millie Bobby Brown - Morning Watch

(The Morning Watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of noteworthy videos from around the web. They could be video essays, fanmade productions, featurettes, short films, hilarious sketches, or just anything that has to do with our favorite movies and TV shows.)

In this edition, Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown delivers a rap recap of the Netflix show’s first season. Plus, a video essay runs through a history of the Japanese horror genre, and Kristen Bell performs a mash-up of Frozen and Metallica with DFoo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl.

You already know that Millie Bobby Brown is outstanding as Eleven on Stranger Things. But did you know that she’s also a pretty damn good rapper? Brown took the time to record a quick rap recap of the first season of Stranger Things on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and she definitely has a penchant for hip-hop.

On the nerdier cinephile side of things, One Hundred Years of Cinema has created a new video essay taking a close look at the Japanese horror genre. They begin with the origins of Japanese terror from the likes of Kaidan and Kabuki in the Edo period and move on through the golden age of more recent hits that have been remade into American horror movies, such as Ringu and Dark Water. If you don’t know much about Japanese horror, this is a great history lesson.

Finally, as part of Jimmy Kimmel Live‘s Halloween fun, guest host Dave Grohl teamed up with guest Kristen Bell to do a rockin’ rendition of “Do You Want to Build a Snowman?” from the Frozen soundtrack. The tune takes a turn later when it becomes “Enter Snowman,” a riff on Metallica’s famous song “Enter Sandman.” And yes, that’s Dave Grohl with the beard and glasses, dressed up like a retired David Letterman for Halloween. I love that guy.
