Apparently fans all over the world are bemused at the revelation that ONE PIECE, despite being the live-action adaptation of an anime, is not actually… bad? This is a startling development. One wonders if Netflix intended it to happen. Sure, there’s no reason for them to do it… but then: you could say the exact same thing about greenlighting the first live action version of AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER. Hollywood is weird, man.
I admit to being disappointed that it was not the BARBIEHEIMER Honest Trailer, but that might have taken a bit too much work. BARBIE and OPPENHEIMER really do have distinct differences in tone and outlook, and trying to make that just work would be hard. Making it funny? …Well, maybe you could do it, for a minute or two. It’s sustaining it that would be the problem.Continue reading The BARBIE Honest Trailer.
They weren’t even that cutting, really. Honest Trailers was more… sad. Like they knew that INDIANA JONES AND THE DIAL OF DESTINY* had to be brought up, but there was no compelling reason to be needlessly cruel about it all.
*I’m continually fascinated by how highly movies can get rated on Amazon. Even MORBIUS managed a 4.1! I know it’s selection bias, but still.
Some movies, Honest Trailers tries to be objective about. SPIDER-MAN: ACROSS THE SPIDER-VERSE is not one of those movies. Given that my entire family went to see it in theaters and we’re going to see the next one, too? …Well, maybe we aren’t objective about it, either.Continue reading The SPIDER-MAN: ACROSS THE SPIDER-VERSE Honest Trailer.
When it comes to SECRET INVASION, I apparently chose… wisely. Honest Trailers wasn’t even overtly cruel. Then again, why bother?
Wow, that was brutal. I skipped THE FLASH; now I’m wondering whether or not to skip it completely. It does not look good.
…I don’t understand this. I mean, yes, I get the plot and whatnot. But who is the target audience for TRANSFORMERS: RISE OF THE BEASTS?
I really did want to like live-action Transformers. I well and truly did.
I saw this in theaters, and I refuse to apologize for the number of times I laughed until I cried.
Debating whether or not to get Diablo IV, honestly. Diablo II was endlessly frustrating for me. On the other hand… Necromancer. Necromancer was my guy.
They loved it. I mean, Honest Trailers had to really, really look for critical things to say about DUNGEONS & DRAGONS: HONOR AMONG THIEVES, and I got the feeling that it was mostly for their own honor’s sake. You don’t want to look like you just threw the game, you know what I mean?
