Pretty much everyone agrees that Toy Story 4 was completely unnecessary. Even though the movie was surprising in the emotional reaction it garnered from audiences, it wasn’t a story that needed to be told, even with the introduction of memorable characters like the paranoid and self-deprecating Forky and the new misunderstood nightmare that is Gabby Gabby joining Woody in delivering an existential crisis for the whole family.
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.

If The Da Vinci Code was too hard to follow because of all the art and nonsense, then Disney has you covered with a treasure hunt where the puzzles are easy and everything is thoroughly explained like you’re on some kind of high school field trip. 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.

We’re coming up on the second season premiere of The Mandalorian on Disney+, and fans are excited to see how the story of the bounty hunter named Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) will continue to play out. The show is a bright spot for fans who may have found some problems with the consistency of quality in the new trilogy created by Lucasfilm under the tutelage of The Walt Disney Company. But as The Mandalorian Honest Trailer reminds us, this story begins when the bounty hunter’s childhood is literally torn apart by the prequels. Read More »
We’re deep into October now, so there’s a good chance that you’ve probably already watched Scream, and maybe even some of the sequels that followed. After all, there’s no better time to brush up on the slasher franchise now that a new installment of Scream is on the way. But funnily enough, the folks behind Honest Trailers have never tackled Wes Craven’s meta horror movie, and even though it’s certainly a modern classic, it’s not without a few silly little details that are worth a laugh. Watch the Scream Honest Trailer below to see what I mean. Read More »
If Disney was going to do one thing right, you’d think that it would be giving Mulan a worthy live-action remake that let’s an all-Asian cast shine in an epic retelling of one of China’s most famous legends. But nope! 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 »
It’s no secret that Batman: The Animated Series is one of the best adaptations of the DC Comics character that has ever been done. So it should come as no surprise that the movie that brought Paul Dini‘s cartoon take on The Caped Crusader to the big screen is also top notch comic book fare.
Batman: Mask of the Phantasm brings a new villain into Batman’s sights, but as the Honest Trailer points out, it’s not long before the Joker rears his painted face into the picture and sends everything into chaos. Because if there’s one thing people can’t stand, it’s having a new Batman movie without a new version of Joker. Watch the Batman: Mask of the Phantasm Honest Trailer below. Read More »
Much of the love for superheroes comes from imagining a world in which they heroically saved the day. But as we’ve lived through the year 2020, it’s feeling more and more like real life superheroes would just let us destroy each other and do whatever they hell they wanted. That’s pretty much where Amazon’s series The Boys takes us, and as the Honest Trailer for the show points out, it’s a world that is more brutal, harsh, and unforgiving than Amazon’s warehouses.

In 2004, Mean Girls joined the roster of generation-defining high school movies like The Breakfast Club and Clueless. Not only does it perfectly capture the teenage culture of the early 2000s, but it’s also hilariously clever for being adapted from a non-fiction parenting advice book. That’s largely thanks to writer Tina Fey, not to mention the impressive casting of Lindsey Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Amanda Seyfried, Lacey Chabert, Lizzy Caplan and Daniel Franzese. Read More »

Netflix is back with another forgettable action movie starring A-list talent whose soul purpose seem to be to burn through money in what might be the biggest money laundering scheme of all time. Either that, or Netflix is just throwing anything and everything at the wall and seeing what sticks.
The Old Guard takes Charlie Theron and puts her in charge of a team of immortal warriors who have been trying to make the world a better place for centuries. The only problem, as The Old Guard Honest Trailer astutely observes, is that they’re really bad at it. Like, to the point that Charlize Theron’s character may be better at detecting the subtle flavors of food than realizing someone has the drop on her. How can they be this bad at fighting after thousands of years? Read More »
When Starship Troopers came out, it was mostly received as an action-packed sci-fi movie filled with gnarly alien bugs, plenty of graphic violence, and some nudity for the horny teens out there. But slowly people realized that even though the director of RoboCop may not be subtle, he’s certainly not bombastic enough to make such a hollow movie. Instead, as the Starship Troopers Honest Trailer reminds us, this is a smart satire of the propaganda of war and the stupid people who buy into it.
