Awesome Honest Trailers

Snakes on a Plane Honest Trailer

Snakes on a Plane Honest Trailer

Just 17 years too late, Screen Junkies is here with their take on these mother-f**king snakes on this mother-f**king plane. We still have no idea how the makers of this completely implausible B-movie ever got an actor of Samuel L. Jackson’s caliber to sign on, but it’s a camp classic for the ages.

Glass Onion Honest Trailer

Glass Onion Honest Trailer

(Spoilers) Rian Johnson’s Glass Onion is a wonderfully entertaining mystery that both pokes fun at and embraces the old whodunnit genre. Screen Junkies offers a playful roasting of the mystery and its colorful cast of characters. And we finally learn who voiced the Hourly Dong.

Andor Honest Trailer

Andor Honest Trailer

(Spoilers) If you watched Andor season one, you know that it’s one of the best and most intelligent Star Wars stories yet. But Honest Trailers must have found something about the series to complain about, right? Or maybe they’ll just moan about all the other Star Wars stuff it’s better than.

She-Hulk Honest Trailer

She-Hulk Honest Trailer

She-Hulk season one is over, and while it isn’t the greatest Marvel show ever, we got some good laughs from its self-referential humor. Screen Junkies offers up their smart-alecky critique of the show, including its lack of courtroom drama, Tatiana Maslany’s improbable dating problems, and its Deus ex Kevin Feige.

Honest Hulk vs. Thor Trailer

Honest Hulk vs. Thor Trailer

The Hulk and Thor have joined forces in the MCU, but this isn’t the first time they got together on screen. In 1988, the made-for-TV movie Incredible Hulk Returns brought back Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno in an overacting competition with Eric Allan Kramer as a fair-haired Viking warrior who laughs way too much.

Honest Obi-Wan Kenobi Trailer

Honest Obi-Wan Kenobi Trailer

Now that we’ve watched the Disney+ series Obi-Wan Kenobi, we know more about how things played out between Episode III and Rogue One. Screen Junkies offers their snarky take on the show, its reliance on the popular badass protects insouciant kid trope, and how cutting the prequels down to a 3-minute montage makes them good.

Honest The Batman Trailer

Honest The Batman Trailer

“He’s ready to put the ‘goth’ back in ‘Gotham.” Screen Junkies takes on the literally darkest of the Dark Knight’s movies with an Honest Trailer for The Batman. Along the way, they critique Bruce Wayne’s detective skills, Riddler’s fashion choices, Colin Farrell’s looks, and the movie’s 2-hour 56-minute runtime.

Honest No Time to Die Trailer

Honest No Time to Die Trailer

The James Bond movie No Time to Die marked the final performance of Daniel Craig as 007. It offered a satisfying end to this incarnation of Bond, though it wasn’t perfect. Screen Junkies offers their snarky take on the 2-hour and 43-minute spy flick, and its hero’s transition from swaggering ladies’ man to exhausted dad.

Honest Shang-Chi Trailer

Honest Shang-Chi Trailer

We really enjoyed Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Except for the typical MCU CGI battle scene at the end, it offered a fresh approach to the superhero genre by making a fun martial arts movie instead. Screen Junkies enjoyed it too, but still took an opportunity to roast some of its more clichéd moments.

Dune Honest Trailer

Dune Honest Trailer

Denis Villeneuve’s introduction to the world of Dune was truly epic but left audiences hanging in the end. Screen Junkies throws a little shade at the filmmaker for living up to some grand expectations, then yanking the rug out from under us right before the credits rolled.

Invincible Honest Trailer

Invincible Honest Trailer

(Gore) We were glued to our screen for every minute of Invincible season one. Robert Kirkman’s animated series has great characters, amazing action, visceral violence, and packs an emotional punch. Still, Screen Junkies managed to find a few things to poke fun at, especially the protagonist’s tendency to over-apologize.

Honest DCEU Trailer

Honest DCEU Trailer

To celebrate their 400th Honest Trailer, Screen Junkies takes on not one or two movies, but the entire DC Extended Universe – a series of questionably dark and brooding superhero movies that started with 2013’s Man of Steel. Despite their many flaws, we still keep coming back for more.

Honest WandaVision Trailer

Honest WandaVision Trailer

(Spoilers) By the time we finished watching WandaVision, we were in love with the series. But, like many of you, we were perplexed by the first couple of episodes, and didn’t know where the journey might take us. Screen Junkies offers their take on the emotional rollercoaster that has us very excited for MCU Phase 4.

Honest Kung Fu Panda Trailer

Honest Kung Fu Panda Trailer

Skadoosh! Sure, Kung Fu Panda was formulaic and filled with clichés and fat jokes, but it was still incredibly entertaining. Screen Junkies looks back at the star-studded flick, and how it managed to rise above the rampant mediocrity of other non-Pixar animated movies.

The Simpsons Movie Honest Trailer

The Simpsons Movie Honest Trailer

We just looked it up on IMDb, and The Simpsons has been on the air for more than 31 years. Along the way, they’ve had their ups and downs, and in 2007, even had their own feature film. Screen Junkies offers their cynical take on the movie, which is now almost old enough to drive. Also, we are so down for Spider-Pig 3.

Honest Lilo & Stitch Trailer

Honest Lilo & Stitch Trailer

In the days before Pixar became king, Disney was struggling to keep its animation fresh and relevant. Screen Junkies looks back with equal parts fondness and snark about the 2002 flick Lilo & Stitch, a surprisingly unconventional movie about a little girl and her blue dog that’s actually a gross and violent alien.

Honest Wonder Woman 1984 Trailer

Honest Wonder Woman 1984 Trailer

Like many of you, we thought Wonder Woman 1984 was a horrible mess. Screen Junkies applies their razor-sharp brand of cynicism to DC’s disastrously bad superhero flick, which honestly is far too easy of a target. They are right that it was a pretty good tourism video for Washington, D.C. though.

2020 Honest Trailer

2020 Honest Trailer

Let’s face it. 2020 will go down in the history books as one of the worst years in modern history. While it’s too soon to turn the year into a big-screen adaptation, Screen Junkies created a trailer for it anyhow, with a little help from guest narrator Patton Oswalt.

Honest Toy Story 4 Trailer

Honest Toy Story 4 Trailer

If you told us a movie about a plastic spork being dug out of the trash would make over a billion dollars, we’d think you were nuts. But Toy Story 4 managed to do just that while keeping a 25-year-old franchise fresh and fun. Screen Junkies latest trailer reminded us it’s about time for us to queue up a Toy Story marathon.

Honest The Evil Dead Trailer

Honest The Evil Dead Trailer

Sam Raimi’s original The Evil Dead movies were some of the most entertaining, goriest, and outlandish horror flicks of all time. Screen Junkies fondly looks back at The Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, and Army of Darkness as Ash takes on the Deadites with his boomstick and chainsaw hand. Groovy!

Honest The Mandalorian Trailer

Honest The Mandalorian Trailer

The Mandalorian is returning to Disney+ on 10.30.2020, so it only makes sense that Screen Junkies would seize upon the chance to make an Honest Trailer for the hit series. Despite being such an excellent show, they still found plenty of reasons to poke fun at its characters and storylines.

Honest Streaming Services Trailer

Honest Streaming Services Trailer

The guys at Screen Junkies take a break from blasting movie trailers to provide their honest take on the streaming services that bring countless movies and TV series into our living rooms every day. At the moment, we’re just grumpy that HBO Max doesn’t work on Amazon Fire, Roku, or LG TVs. Also, we don’t get Quibi at all.

Honest Trailer: The Boys

Honest Trailer: The Boys

(PG-13: Gore) With its over-the-top violence and incredibly questionable morality, the Amazon Prime series The Boys is definitely not for everyone. We enjoyed the wild ride for its first season, and are looking forward to seeing what’s next. Of course, Screen Junkies has a thing or two to say before season two kicks off.

Honest The Old Guard Trailer

Honest The Old Guard Trailer

With movie theaters off limits, Netflix has been keeping us entertained by streaming popcorn flicks into our homes. Despite its flaws, we thought The Old Guard was thoroughly entertaining. Screen Junkies is here to give us their snarky take on the Charlize Theron action movie about a team of immortal mercenaries.

Starship Troopers Honest Trailer

Starship Troopers Honest Trailer

One of life’s must-see movies has to be Paul Verhoeven’s Starship Troopers. It’s loaded with scenery-chewing, quotable quotes, thinly-veiled societal commentary, giant alien insects, and lots of goo. What’s not to like? Screen Junkies couldn’t agree more, and offers their sarcastic take on this brain-sucking classic.

E.T. Honest Trailer

E.T. Honest Trailer

As the number of new movies in theaters is temporarily low, Screen Junkies continues to turn to the past for inspiration, this time setting fire to the 1982 Spielberg classic “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial” with a roast that smells like melting Reese’s Pieces. Though the knock-off “Mac and Me” actually got the brunt of the criticism.
