The ‘2018 Oscars’ Honest Trailers.

Really, the only review that you will need. Or want, possibly.

The ‘Get Out’ Honest Trai… wait. Do I have to go watch it now?

Come, I will conceal nothing from you: I skipped it. Mostly because the trailers didn’t click for me, but apparently Get Out got an Oscar nomination this year and that almost never happens for horror flicks. Even horror flicks that are really social commentary — no, wait, all horror flicks are really social commentary.  Unless they’re just gore-fests, of course.

And apparently this movie mocked — heavily — precisely the demographic that gets off on being mocked — heavily — by certain other demographics. So, I don’t know. Anybody here actually see it? Should I try to track it down?

The ‘It’ Honest Trailer.

It was a fan pick, which probably explains why – oh, here, watch it.

The ‘Stranger Things’ Honest TV Trailer.

This one has a bit of subtext. Or maybe just text. Or at least demonstrates just how fragile people seem to be feeling right now. Personally, I’ve found that decompression helps a good deal with that, but that’s just me.

The Spider-Man Homecoming Honest Trailer.

As somebody in comments noted — no, really: there’s a small but finite chance that a Youtube comment is not of the Devil — the Spider-Man: Homecoming Honest Trailer was almost certainly in the queue before Screen Junkies had to deal with the sexual harassment allegations.  So I don’t know whether this is representative of their new style, or not.  Heck, it may be a while before we get another one.

Still, it’s nice to have the series back.

The fairly brutal Honest Trailer for The Mummy.

It’s not as brutal as the one that they did for Catwoman, though.  There was something righteous about that particular trailer.  Not self-righteous; just plain righteous.  As if an angel came down from Heaven, because the fate of the three planes depended on it.  In contrast, the one for The Mummy is just aggravated:

This Memento Honest Trailer is genius.

Sheer genius, in that special Nolan way. I laughed like a loon and I haven’t even seen Memento.  …Yeah, I know, but the pile never gets any smaller.
