I enjoyed ARRIVAL quite a bit. Honest Trailers eventually admitted that it did, too. It still also irritates me, for the reasons mentioned here. I don’t know whether Honest Trailer feels the same way about that…
Do I actually want to watch NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN? Coen Brothers movies always run the risk of making me feel sad. I don’t seek out feeling sad.
Did Honest Trailers like WONKA, or dislike it? I honestly can’t tell. Usually they’re a lot less ambiguous about it.
Their review of AQUAMAN AND THE LOST KINGDOM was… harsh, but fair. I liked it, but it had issues. Quite a few issues, really. To start off, it should’ve been more of a horror movie…
ROBOCOP: ROGUE CITY looks fun and not particularly solemn. Honest Trailers went particularly easy on it, too, which is usually a good sign. Alas, I just don’t have the time to play it just now.
Honest Trailers is taking the next couple of weeks off, so they’ve collected the ten worst movies they’ve ever reviews. …It’s pretty damn epic, in its way.
But, amazingly, it lacks a few movies that should have been on the list. Well, one at least. You’ll know which one.
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.
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.
If I have to review the FIVE NIGHTS AT FREDDY’S Honest Trailer, then you get to sit through it, too. And I did have to review it. My youngest adores this franchise. I’ll likely see this damned movie at least five times.
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.
