The Shawshank Redemption may be a beloved drama that you’ll watch every single time it’s playing on AMC, TNT or whatever cable channel is playing it on a lazy Sunday afternoon. But as the Honest Trailer for the film from Frank Darabont reminds us, when it arrived on the big screen in September 1994, the movie only earned $16 million in its initial theatrical release. Meanwhile, Forrest Gump was in the middle of an insane 42-week theatrical run. Just like Andy Dufresne, the movie had to trek through a lot of shit on its way to redemption as an Oscar nominee.

Normally the folks behind Honest Trailers are taking shots at movies new and old, but this year, they couldn’t help but take aim at the live-action adaptation of The Book of Revelation that encompasses the year 2020.

In case that’s not “Honest” enough for you, comedian Patton Oswalt chimes in to help send off 2020 in the same manner Warner Bros. bid farewell to movie theaters.

But honestly, we’re not sure there’s anyone out there who could easily figure out how to travel back in time in this manner to pull off some kind of complex world-ending scenario. That’s because, as the Tenet Honest Trailer succinctly puts it, this is the most Christopher Nolan movie yet, for better or worse. Read More »
One of the shows that helped kick off the latest Golden Age of Television, also referred to as Peak TV, was undoubtedly J.J. Abrams‘ sci-fi mystery series Lost.

A Christmas Story has been playing on television so much every holiday season that even people who don’t love the movie probably have it memorized. From the slow-motion “Oh, fuuuuudge!” to the triple dog dare, this movie is chock full of quotable lines.

Fans have been waiting to see The New Mutants since 2018, and as we’ve all heard in the same joke over and over again, they might as well be called The Old Mutants. But that’s the quality of joke that The New Mutants is worthy of since it’s a totally lifeless limp to the end of the finish line for the X-Men franchise. In fact, as The New Mutants Honest Trailer so succinctly puts it, you’ll wish the movie was called The Suicide Squad. Read More »
