Even though The Revenant took home plenty of awards leading up to the Oscars, and ended up earning a Best Director award for Alejandro G. Inarritu, it was Spotlight that ended up going home with the top prize, and deservedly so (Mad Max: Fury Road would have been a fine recipient as well). Thankfully Leonardo DiCaprio ended up winning Best Actor too, so all is right with the world.
The Revenant is on the way to home video next month, so now’s the perfect time for the Honest Trailer to skewer the movie that is easily described as epic Oscar bait. The movie was specifically given mercy in the Best Picture nominee round-up from Honest Trailers earlier this year, but now they’re not holding back.

Even though a big chunk of the Star Wars universe was turned into nothing more than glorified fan fiction when Disney bought Lucasfilm and turned the entire Expanded Universe into non-canon Legends, there is still quite a detailed mythology behind the sci-fi saga. What’s interesting is that some of the most iconic details of the Star Wars universe are never actually named in the films.
A new video runs through 23 things in Star Wars that were only seen but never expressly mentioned in the original trilogy. From any mention of Sith to the names of various starships, you just might be surprised to find out how many things you learned about Star Wars outside of the movies. Read More »
When you look at how director Edgar Wright presented Scott Pilgrim vs the World for the big screen, you would think that the film adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley‘s graphic novel series would be pretty loyal to the source material. For the most part, that’s true. But since the screenplay by Michael Bacall went into development shortly after the release of the first volume in the book series, there was a time when the books were being released while the screenplay was being written.
Beyond that, since films rarely are able to directly translate a book to the big screen, there are plenty of differences between the Scott Pilgrim vs the World movie and the books that inspired it. Thankfully, a new video essay runs through all the Scott Pilgrim book differences, and you can watch it below. Read More »
It didn’t take long after people saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens for people to start saying that the movie from director J.J. Abrams as essentially a remake of Star Wars: A New Hope, just with some new characters, added story elements and a new score. There’s essentially no argument against that, but it’s up to fans as to whether or not they’re fine with accepting that.
However, if there are any people out there who just don’t see the similarities between The Force Awakens and A New Hope, a side-by-side comparison of both movies has been put together online, and it’s pretty much an undeniable fact that the new movie borrowed a lot from the old.
