A Quiet Place Honest Trailer

A Quiet Place is a certified hit. The movie that started off as another possible Cloverfield anthology film turned into one of the biggest successes of the spring. Now that it’s available on home video, an Honest Trailer can dive into every single near soundless frame of the movie that, on one hand, depicts a terrifying dystopian world, but on another, has inadvertently created a father’s paradise for John Krasinski. Because where can you demand quiet all the time, go fishing and keep your kids from watching all your televisions. Read More »

Rampage Honest Trailer

Dwayne Johnson is officially starring in so many movies that the Honest Trailer for his video game adaptation Rampage has arrived the exact same week that his new action thriller Skyscraper hits theaters. That might just be because Screen Junkies is trying to capitalized on all of the chatter surrounding The Rock now that he has a new movie coming out, but Rampage does come to Blu-ray and DVD next Tuesday, so it all kind of works out.

Anyway, the Rampage Honest Trailer does exactly what you’d expect it to do with a video game movie that has one of the weakest stories, some of the cheesiest one-liners, and truly awful dialogue. Oh, and did we mention the action sequences are totally bonkers? Read More »

The Purge Honest Trailer

Today we celebrate everything American, so the folks behind Honest Trailers turned the spotlight on the most American film franchise there is: The Purge.

What could be more American than a movie that condemns senseless violence while also glorifying stylized senseless violence, all in a world full of strife and corporate greed? The Purge does away with all that pesky social commentary veiled with metaphors and just lays it all out on the table. Thankfully, The Purge Honest Trailer is here to remind us all just how on the nose this franchise has always been. Read More »

Tomb Raider and Pacific Rim Uprising Honest Trailer

The folks at Honest Trailers have no problem singling out movies and making fun of them mercilessly. However, in the case of two releases from the spring of 2018, neither of them is apparently worth enough of their time to get their own Honest Trailer.

That’s right. Both Pacific Rim Uprising and Tomb Raider are so down the middle of the line that they’re being put into a single Honest Trailer double feature. They both just to happen to be movies that exist because Warner Bros. Pictures need to do something with the video game intellectual property they inherited, and Pacific Rim Uprising just so happened to rake in box office bucks in China. Read More »

Jurassic Park 3 Honest Trailer

This weekend brings Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom to theaters. And while it seems like there’s not much excitement surrounding the sequel, it’s still on track to have a big opening weekend somewhere between $130 million and $140 million. That may not be as big as the opening of Jurassic World, but that’s perfectly fine. At the very least we know this won’t be a disaster on par with what is probably the worst film in the franchise.

Jurassic Park 3 was released in 2001 in a desperate attempt to keep the franchise relevant. Instead, they threw out everything that made the first movie a classic and the second movie tolerable and turned it into an excuse to have dinosaurs chase after stupid characters and taint everything that came before it. Oh, and it has a fucking talking raptor in it. Read More »
