If there’s one franchise that hasn’t aged as well as some of its animated counterparts, it’s the Shrek franchise. Chock full of dated pop culture references and animation that looks uglier than other animated movies that came out around the same time, these movie also got worse as they went on.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Shrek 2 is a big step down from its predecessor, and with the benefit of hindsight, that makes it even worse since the original Shrek isn’t quite as good as you might remember either. We’ll let the Shrek 2 Honest Trailer take it from here, even if they’re a little more complimentary of the sequel overall. Read More »
The filmography of Luc Besson has gotten progressively worse. But we’re thankful that the 1990s allowed him to give us one of the most entertaining sci-fi movies of the decade: The Fifth Element.
Long before Thanos came around, a priest, a taxi driver, a corporate boss, and a supreme being were all looking for stones that would give them the power to save the world. If that sounds like the start of a joke, well, it kinda is, because this movie is downright silly when you try to describe it to anyone. And as The Fifth Element Honest Trailer points out, somehow the hero and the villain of our movie never meet. Read More »
As if there wasn’t enough to worry about right now, don’t forget that it’s tornado season. And since there aren’t any new blockbusters hitting theaters, there’s no better time to take a look at Twister, one of the biggest hits of 1996.
Tornadoes are destructive cyclones that can tear apart entire buildings, but before they form, there’s just some regular old weather in the sky, doppler radars to check, and wind to stare at. Seriously, how did Twister make storm chasing so exciting? It seems by having a ragtag ensemble cast and a lot of weather jargon. The Twister Honest Trailer breaks it all down below. Read More »

Since no one had anything else to watch while quarantining at home, Trolls World Tour became a VOD sensation that might usher in the death of movie theaters. At least that’s what the National Association of Theater Owners wants you to think. But when you see what the Trolls World Tour Honest Trailer has to say, you’ll realize that this is just an instance of parents desperately doing anything they can to get their kids to sit down for an hour and a half without having to play Frozen 2 again.

Since we’re all living in our own somewhat post-apocalyptic hell right now, it’s the perfect time for Honest Trailers to take a look back at the visually stunning, slow burn sci-fi thriller sequel that is Blade Runner 2049. While some expected the sequel to land as a blockbuster reboot, director Denis Villeneuve gave us a contemplative, thoughtful follow-up to the original movie that digs even deeper into the idea of what it means to be human. And you get plenty of time to think about it since Ryan Gosling gives us endless silence as he wanders around a post-apocalyptic future. Read More »
Before The Clone Wars was a hit computer animated Star Wars series that ended too soon and came back to life for one final season, there was a 2D animated adaptation of the throwaway line of dialogue from Star Wars: A New Hope. Filling in some of the gap between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, we follow the Jedi and endless laser-blasting Clone Troopers as they charge into a barrage of droid armies over and over again, all with the cloaks dramatically blowing in the wind.

In a true miracle that goes against the rules of nature, a massive outcry from the internet actually resulting in improving something. That something is the character design for the big screen adaptation of Sonic the Hedgehog, which was so terrifying and horrible in the first trailer for the movie that fans couldn’t stop dunking on the Blur Blur, and Paramount Pictures spent millions to force visual effects artists to fast-track a total overhaul of the computer generated character. But was it worth it? Let’s see what the Sonic the Hedgehog Honest Trailer has to say. Read More »

If you haven’t heard about Netflix’s totally bonkers true crime documentary series Tiger King by now, then you must have been in a coma. It’s a trashy television sensation telling the story of some of the craziest people you will ever meet, their exploits in breeding and “caring” for large exotic cats and other unlikely pets, and of course, murder and intrigue. As the Tiger King Honest Trailer perfectly puts it, this is the baby of The Coen Brothers, Christopher Guest and a snuff film. Read More »
