mother! Honest Trailer

One of the most divisive and infuriating movies of the year was undoubtedly mother!, the latest film from director Darren Aronofsky. For some reason, audiences expected the filmmaker behind Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain, Black Swan and Noah to make a straightforward horror thriller starring one of the biggest stars in the world. But that’s not what mother! is at all.

As part of their viewer’s choice kick-off to 2018, the folks at Honest Trailers sink their teeth into the movie that is strange, suspenseful, confusing, and gruesome. You really should see the movie for yourself, and then come back and watch the mother! Honest Trailer. Read More »

Boss Baby Honest Trailer

In the history of cinema there have been some weird movies, and you might not anticipate that a DreamWorks Animation movie about a baby dressed like a corporate boss would be one. But Boss Baby is undoubtedly one of the strangest and most troublesome movie universes created in recent memory. The world in which the story exists just might make you forget how strange Pixar’s Cars universe is. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, sit back and let the folks at Honest Trailers break it down for you. Read More »

Jumanji Honest Trailer

This week brings Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle to theaters, a half-sequel, half-reboot of the 1995 adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg’s beloved children’s book the same name. While the new game sucks Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and Jack Black into the jungle in the form of a video game, Robin Williams had to contend with the jungle invading the real world after spending decades in the jungle himself.

Now it’s 22 years later, and it’s time for us to take a good look back at the original Jumanji through the lens of Honest Trailers. For some reason, they don’t have many big swings to take at this movie which hasn’t aged particularly well, especially in the visual effects department, but they do point out some strange details that you might not have thought about before.

The Santa Clause Honest Trailer

It’s the holiday season, which means all those Christmas movies that we avoid watching the rest of the year suddenly make it onto TV and into our DVD players and streaming devices again. One of the movies that people can’t seem to get enough of this time of year is The Santa Clause.

Tim Allen was at the height of his popularity when the first film in what surprisingly and unnecessarily became a trilogy arrived in 1994. So of course he had to star in a holiday movie where he brought his sarcastic personality to the North Pole and shook things up a bit. Now Honest Trailers has tackled what kids of the 1990s consider to be a holiday classic, and you just might see the movie in a different light after this. 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.

Blade Runner Honest Trailer

With the first screenings of Blade Runner 2049 hitting theaters for sneak previews this evening, plenty of viewers who never went out of their way to watch the original 1982 sci-fi noir that came before are catching up with Ridley Scott‘s masterful, visual marvel. So it’s the perfect time to make fun of it.

Blade Runner was pretty much a bomb when it hit the box office 25 years ago, making only $6 million in its opening weekend and only became a classic when critics and scholars started taking a closer look at the film’s seamless blend of science fiction and film noir, strengthened by a thoughtful, provocative look at our possible future. But it’s not without plenty of details that are ripe for the mocking in the latest Honest Trailer.

Wonder Woman Honest Trailer

Even though Wonder Woman┬áhit Blu-ray this week, the movie only just dropped out of the top 15 movies at the box office this past weekend. So far, Patty Jenkins‘ origin story for the DC Comics superhero has raked in $818 million worldwide, proving that there can be good movies in the DC Extended Universe, and that audiences want quality female-led superhero movies.

If you loved Wonder Woman, don’t worry, the folks at Honest Trailers aren’t here to rain on your parade. But they do have to point out that Wonder Woman isn’t without some flaws, despite the fact it’s a powerful, inspiring superhero tale that succeeds where all the other DCEU movies fall short.
