The ‘How much Scotch did Screen Junkies drink?’ The Year 2023 Honest Trailer.

I’m not saying that Screen Junkies was blotto while making this. I’m just saying that it’s been a really alarming year for mainstream Hollywood movies, not to mention streaming services. The kind of alarming that would encourage people whose job depends on a functional entertainment industry to take a shot or two of hard booze, in order to numb the pain.

I know, I know: and nothing of value was lost. …But I like going to the movies, sorry. I always have. Not going to any during the pandemic bothered me in subtle ways. I’m gonna miss ’em, when they’re gone.

The OPPENHEIMER Honest Trailer.

It’s not bad, although I think Honest Trailers probably should have skipped the joke about the lack of Japanese/Native American viewpoints. Either would have frankly been irrelevant to the main thrust of OPPENHEIMER: worse, they would have felt irrelevant to the movie. If a director doesn’t want to put something into a film, sometimes it’s pragmatically good to just, well, accept that. Art is what it is, not what you want it to be.

Well, unless you’re the artist yourself. And sometimes, not even then.


The BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER Series Honest Trailer.

Come, I will conceal nothing from you. Joss Whedon is dead to me. BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER is not. I cannot fault Honest Trailers for tossing down some barbs on it, but… I watched the show every week, man. It was my thing.

PS: ‘Hush’ is only one of the three best episodes of BtVS. The other two are ‘The Body’ – and yes, ‘Once More, With Feeling,’ damn your eyes. I will die on this hill.
