Transformers The Last Knight Honest Trailer

Michael Bay has supposedly delivered his last effort behind the camera for the Transformers franchise, and he pulled out all the stops to make this one the most insane, self-indulgent, nonsensical, inconsistent, blockbuster bonanza. Transformers: The Last Knight has everything but the kitchen sink, and even if it had the kitchen sink, it would transform into a racist caricature of whatever new car General Motors wants to have a two and a half hour advertisement for this year.

Transformers: The Last Knight was the #1 movie voted on by Screen Junkies fans to get the Honest Trailer treatment this month, and they do their best to focus on all the most ridiculous parts of this movie, of which there are many. Oh, and keep an eye out for a cameo from one of our articles featured prominently at the beginning of this video! Read More »

Saturday Night Live Old Prospector

Will Ferrell is easily one of the most revered and beloved Saturday Night Live cast members of all time. The improv comedian joined the cast of SNL back in 1995 at a time when the series was struggling to fill the void left by departed cast members in the early 1990s. Though he wasn’t an instant star, he was one of several new cast members who ushered in another favorite era of SNL, creating several now-classic characters and sketches. But there’s one incredible sketch that never made it to air featuring a hilarious Will Ferrell character that you need to watch immediately.

In October of 2001, Will Ferrell starred in a sketch that was cut from the live show as an Old Prospector who was inexplicably part of a modern military unit being deployed to Afghanistan, and it’s positively magnificent. You might have seen it on SNL‘s “Best of Will Ferrell” home video release, but this is the first time it’s been made officially available online. Read More »

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of the Shadows Honest Trailer

The first film in the rebooted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise may have gotten everything wrong about the heroes in a half-shell, likely thanks to Michael Bay’s involvement, but Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon tried to make it better by delivering a sequel that was more faithful to the animated series.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows included villains like Krang, Bebop and Rocksteady, the Technodrome, cut down on Megan Fox‘s screentime and more. Unfortunately, as the folks at Honest Trailers so astutely points out, they also forgot to write a story that makes some goddamn sense.

Stephen King's It Honest Trailer

Even though Wonder Woman has been getting praised left and right for being a box office hit and the best movie in the DC Extended Universe, the real surprise box office hit of 2017 was the new adaptation of Stephen King’s It.

It shattered box office records after pulling in over $123 million in its opening weekend and went on to gross over $700 million worldwide. But that doesn’t make it immune to the mockery from the insane clown posse over at Honest Trailers, which points out the formulaic way all the kids are haunted by Pennywise, the endless fascination with nostalgia, and the muddled motivation for what Pennywise really wants from the kids.
