The JOKER Honest Trailer.

Gonna be honest: I’m saving JOKER for a day when I’m in a bad mood anyway. Why wreck a good one by getting this in my head?

That’s not a slam of the flick, by the way. I hear that it’s great. But hoo boy but it looks grim.

The BAD BOYS Honest Trailer.

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I haven’t actually watched either BAD BOYS movie. I’m not entirely sure that this Honest Trailer is convincing me to. Or that it’s convincing me not to. I am, as they say, on the cusp when it comes to these two flicks.

The ‘Every Quentin Taratino Movie’ Honest Trailer.

This was fun.

I’ve actually only seen either five or six Tarantino films (depending on how we’re scoring KILL BILL), but the bit in the middle — you’ll know the bit I’m talking about — had me wheezing with laughter anyway. It’s unfair to Tarantino; and yet, it really, really isn’t. It’s also simultaneously a pastiche of, critique about, and paean to the director. It feels… appropriate.

The Honest Trailers ‘A Decade In Film’ Supercut.

It’s actually rather good.

No explanations, no commentary, but it did remind me of a couple of movies that I want to watch again (DUNKIRK in particular*). Worth a look, if you like movies. And I guess that I do.

*I assume people saw it when it came out in theaters, but if you didn’t and you get the chance, do so.

The GALAXY QUEST Honest Trailer / Never Surrender documentary link.

First things first: GALAXY QUEST. If you have not yet watched it, then you are in for a treat. Go buy it or whatever and then watch the Honest Trailer.

Now, if you want to watch NEVER SURRENDER, which is the documentary about Galaxy Quest, you can get it here. Feel free. Really: Christmas is coming up and the referral money’s always nice.

The THE LION KING Honest Trailer.

I think that THE LION KING remake kind of broke Honest Trailers.

PS: Mrs. Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I’ve ever known in my life.

The SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Honest Trailer.

…Yeah, Tony Stark was kind of an [expletive deleted] sometimes, huh? Even in SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME where he’s, well, you know. Dead. I liked the movie a lot, though. And I’m glad that Sony & Disney figured out how to resolve their issues.

The DETECTIVE PIKACHU Honest Trailer.

This is one where I don’t agree too much with Honest Trailers. My kids thought DETECTIVE PIKACHU was pretty good. They liked it. Of course, it helps that the eldest is a stone-cold Mewtwo fan.

Come to think of it, I liked it too. I’m not steeped in Pokemon lore, but it was fun. I enjoyed it.

The Fairly Brutal X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX trailer.

Brutal, but probably fair. I dunno, I didn’t see it. I gotta be told that the movie didn’t suck before I’ll watch an X-Men film these days. And apparently that strategy works like gangbusters!

Although, honestly? I’m not sure how they’re going to port all of this into the MCU. The entire ‘society thinks mutants are bad’ thing that Marvel liked to do worked fine in the comic books, but it feels kind of… hokey, now.

Ach, well: we’ll let Ryan Reynolds sort it all out.

The ‘This is a Public Service’ ALADDIN remake Honest Trailer.

I discovered something interesting: now that I’ve seen this Honest Trailer for ALADDIN, I genuinely have no interest in seeing the movie at all. Not in the “Well, that was dumb” sense; in the “I feel now that I have actually seen the movie” sense. Although, sure: it looks dumb, too. But that’s never stopped me before!

Gotta agree with the Honest Trailer people, too: The Rise of Jafar would have been a more interesting movie. No, wait, that’s coming out in October.
