Last week, the quickly bestselling Batman: The Animated Series finally arrived in its entirety on Blu-ray in a limited edition box set (though some fans weren’t happy with how it arrived). That means it’s time to take a look back at what many DC Comics fans consider to be the definitive adaptation of Batman.
The Batman: The Animated Series Honest Trailer takes a look at the cartoon that presents kids with complicated themes, but also gives them scenes with Batman kicking werewolves and Penguin getting captured by a couple of kids. It’s the Batman adaptation so dark that they had to draw it on black paper. Read More »
With nearly $227 million worldwide, Baby Driver easily became Edgar Wright‘s most successful film. With a stellar soundtrack that gets your foot tapping and keeps the entire movie on a mesmerizing rhythm, it’s an exercise in expertly using sound to tell a lively story. But that doesn’t mean the Honest Trailer can’t effectively poke fun at the synchronous crime thriller starring Ansel Elgort, especially when it comes to the presence of disgraced Kevin Spacey in a villainous role.

Even Michael Bay‘s most passionate fans rarely stand by Pearl Harbor. There are people out there that like the movie, but, unlike with the Transformers movies, you rarely get called an idiot online for not being a fan of Bay’s 2001 epic. The film was new territory for the director, but it missed the mark, thanks to miscasting, some tone-deaf humor, and its glossy aesthetic. Which means it’s ripe for getting ripped apart. After the jump, watch the Pearl Harbor honest trailer.

After all the excitement surrounding Andy & Lana Wachowski getting another chance at crafting original sci-fi, it was such a disappointment to see what Jupiter Ascending turned out to be. It’s one of those beautiful, mind-blowing disasters like Super Mario Bros. or Battlefield Earth. And while it’s full of stunning imagery and wild characters, none of it makes any damn sense. In fact, the movie is so ridiculous, that the folks at Honest Trailers were begged to skewer this sci-fi debacle, and they don’t pull any punches.

The Screen Junkies team isn’t always mean. When they’re genuinely impressed by a movie, they’re honest enough to say so. But if I’m being honest, it’s more fun to watch them rip a deserving target to shreds. And the Transformers: Age of Extinction Honest Trailer is truly a delight to behold.
The video tears into all the obnoxious, nonsensical, and downright stupid aspects of the Michael Bay-directed extravaganza, and even delves into some eye-rolling errors you might have missed. Hit the jump to watch the Transformers Age of Extinction Honest Trailer.

Remember July 2012? The Internet was abuzz about a little film called The Dark Knight Rises, the third film in Christopher Nolan‘s Batman trilogy. After an unprecedented amount of hype and anticipation, the actual release of the film started an unstoppable furor of online discussion regarding the details of the plot. Many forgave plot holes in favor of Nolan’s cinematic eye. Others denied their existence. But many people harped on ever little inconsistency and WTF moment that occurs in the film, to the rage/delight of other fans.
But that was months ago and even with the film hitting Blu-ray Tuesday, most of us have calmed way down and moved onto the next thing. (Maybe Star Wars Episode VII.) Leave it to the Honest Trailer team at ScreenJunkies to reopen old wounds, though, with their hilarious and brutal “honest trailer” for The Dark Knight Rises. Five minutes that’ll either make you laugh out loud, or throw your computer across the room. Read More »
