But the Toy Story 4 Honest Trailer also hones in one of the more disappointing aspects of the movie: the colorful ensemble cast that was so key to Toy Story adventures before now has nothing more to do than constantly beckon after Woody and Buzz.

National Treasure brings us Nicolas Cage in his most subtle role yet, and as the Honest Trailer reveals, there’s an even greater conspiracy at the center of this movie than a treasure map on the back of the Declaration of Independence.

Plenty of industries are hurting because of the coronavirus pandemic, and that includes entertainment. But while movies and TV shows are starting to get back into production, live stand-up comedy shows are still mostly non-existent because gathering a bunch of people in a single room to open their mouths and guffaw incessantly isn’t the smartest movie when there’s a contagious virus kicking around. But Netflix recently put together a little video to hold us over with some of their biggest comedy stars.
Netflix asked comedian Neal Brennan to check in with some of his fellow comics like Adam Sandler, Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Tig Notaro, John Mulaney, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Tiffany Haddish, David Letterman, Wanda Sykes, Sarah Silverman, Steve Martin, and many more. Brennan wanted to provide some levity not just for the comedians stuck at home without an audience, but also for their fans who miss seeing the on stage, so he asks them all about their favorite jokes, comics, previous jobs, and more.

Instead, they take everything you loved about the original animated adventure, shove it to the side, and try to create a Chinese fantasy war drama with sparks of female empowerment, all in a package that’s tame enough for the whole family. Ugh. Can we just have Mushu back already? Read More »
