Honest Trailer: The Lion King (2019)

Honest Trailer: The Lion King (2019)

“It’s a meaningless line of indifference.” Let’s face it. An all-CGI remake of the animated classic The Lion King was a bad idea from the moment it was born in some executive boardroom. As expected, Screen Junkies simply annihilates this soulless showcase for uncannily realistic singing animals. Disney, please stop the madness.

The Shining Honest Trailer

The Shining Honest Trailer

Screen Junkies looks back at Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film about a writer who becomes unhinged as he simultaneously experiences writer’s block and cabin fever, and his son who seems to be possessed by mysterious forces. At times it’s slow, at times it’s puzzling, at times it’s downright weird, but it’s still a classic.

Honest Batman: The Movie Trailer

Honest Batman: The Movie Trailer

Some days you just can’t get rid of a bomb. Screen Junkies looks back at one of our favorite comic book movies of all time, the campy and hilarious 1966 feature-length Batman movie based on the Adam West and Burt Ward TV series. It also got us thinking: perhaps a touch of humor is how DC could save the franchise.

Alita: Battle Angel Honest Trailer

Alita: Battle Angel Honest Trailer

Alita: Battle Angel was a groundbreaking film when it comes to integrating computer-generated characters into realistic settings, but it was far from a perfect movie. Screen Junkies pokes fun at the movie’s compressed exposition, rushed character development, silly rollerblading sequences, and sequel-bait ending.

Batman Returns Honest Trailer

Batman Returns Honest Trailer

Screen Junkies takes a few minutes to remind us of the mess that was Tim Burton’s reluctant follow-up to his 1989 classic, a Batman movie with very little Batman and two too many villains. Even Michelle Pfeiffer’s skin-tight catsuit couldn’t save this movie from being a faint shadow of its predecessor.

Wild Wild West Honest Trailer

Wild Wild West Honest Trailer

After teaming up for the wild and hilarious Men in Black, Will Smith and director Barry Sonnenfeld thought maybe they could make magic in the Wild Wild West. Instead, they just made a wild wild mess. Screen Junkies roasts the hell out of this 1999 dud, which fortunately was not an indicator of the quality of anyone’s future projects.

MCU Honest Trailer

MCU Honest Trailer

After numerous requests to do Honest Trailers for individual Marvel movies, Screen Junkies smashed the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe into a single clip. Along the way they trash just about every trope, from the confusion of magic, science, and technology, to daddy issues, to their obsession with ’70s and ’80s pop culture.

Con Air Honest Trailer

Con Air Honest Trailer

Con Air is one of the best/worst movies ever made. It’s filled with great actors working well beneath their usual paygrade, chewing scenery, spitting out cheesy dialog, and blowing stuff up. Screen Junkies offers their take on the film that asked us in no uncertain terms to put the bunny back in the box.

The Mummy Honest Trailer

The Mummy Honest Trailer

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since Brendan Fraser first appeared in The Mummy, and to celebrate the auspicious anniversary, Screen Junkies is here to lovingly roast the only Mummy movie worth even talking about. Sure, it was an Indiana Jones knockoff, but we still love it.

Howard the Duck Honest Trailer

Howard the Duck Honest Trailer

While we’re not sure how many of you have actually seen Howard the Duck, we have. While it was definitely weird, perhaps audiences just weren’t ready for it. Screen Junkies offers their scathingly funny take on the 1986 Marvel comic book flick that went from box-office bomb to cult classic.

Into the Spider-Verse Honest Trailer

Into the Spider-Verse Honest Trailer

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was one of the best movies of 2018, so rather than dig for its flaws, Honest Trailers dives head-first into the madness to explore some of its own multi-dimensional alter-egos.

Honest Trailers: 2019 Oscars Edition

Honest Trailers: 2019 Oscars Edition

(PG-13: Language) Screen Junkies pokes fun at this year’s Academy Award nominees and the controversies revolving the ceremony itself. Take your pick from movies with lessons that are obvious yet still unheeded. And Black Panther. Yes it deserves to be there, so stop it.

Elf Honest Trailer

Elf Honest Trailer

After its release in 2003, Elf quickly became a modern Christmas classic. Screen Junkies pays tribute to Will Ferrell’s perfect performance as Buddy the Elf in their holiday Honest Trailer, and asks us to give thanks that Jim Carrey turned down the role.

Halloween Honest Trailer (1978)

Halloween Honest Trailer (1978)

With the new Halloween movie hitting theaters, the guys at Screen Junkies decided to go back to the movie that started it all, John Carpenter’s 1978 horror classic, and give it the kind of loving, yet snarky tribute it deserves.

Doctor Who Honest Trailers

Doctor Who Honest Trailers

“Equipped with a sonic screwdriver and a psychic paper – two devices with the power to speed up the plot.” Screen Junkies takes on the long-running BBC sci-fi series with two Honest Trailers. The first one pokes fun at the modern day version, while the second roasts the classic.

The Predator Honest Trailer

The Predator Honest Trailer

Screen Junkies looks back at a true 1980s classic action film, packed with action, horror, guns, monsters, cloaking devices, explosions, and more jacked-up macho men than you can shake a stick at. And thankfully no Jean-Claude Van Damme in a lobster suit.

A Quiet Place Honest Trailer

A Quiet Place Honest Trailer

“It’s every dad’s paradise, where a father of three children can finally get some peace and quiet…” John Krasinski’s intense horror was a great movie – if nothing else for it’s ability to make audiences be completely silent. Screen Junkies couldn’t resist roasting it anyhow.

Honest Christopher Nolan Trailer

Honest Christopher Nolan Trailer

From The Dark Knight to Dunkirk, director Christopher Nolan has proven himself as one of today’s greatest fillmakers. Screen Junkies simultaneously honors and roasts Nolan, from his convoluted, non-linear plots, to the repetitive themes throughout his work.

Honest Donkey Kong Game Trailer

Honest Donkey Kong Game Trailer

“It all started with Miyamoto seeing ‘King Kong’ and saying, ‘Hey, let’s just do that!'” While we already know the real reason his name is “Donkey,” we still enjoyed Smosh Games‘ parody of Nintendo’s big lug of an ape, and his rise to fame from his early 8-bit arcade days.

Wes Anderson Movie Honest Trailer

Wes Anderson Movie Honest Trailer

Screen Junkies pokes fun at some of the many common themes and techniques found in Wes Anderson’s movies, from the bittersweet family stories, to the visual symmetry, linear camera movements, his meticulous attention to detail, and the Futura font.

Thor Ragnarok Honest Trailer

Thor Ragnarok Honest Trailer

Screen Junkies presents their take on summer 2017’s big hit, the over-the-top Thor sequel which trimmed Thor’s lush locks, smashed mighty Mjolnir, and gave us the Goldblum we all deserved. But first, we have to get through the new Marvel logo sequence.

Honest Trailers: 2018 Oscars Edition

Honest Trailers: 2018 Oscars Edition

Screen Junkies pokes fun at the nine films nominated for Best Picture Academy Awards this year, from Gary Oldman’s fat suit in The Darkest Hour to the fishy shades of grey in The Shape of Water, to that guy from Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

Get Out Honest Trailer

Get Out Honest Trailer

(Spoilers) Screen Junkies takes on one of the best movies of 2017 – a film that deftly combined psychological horror and social commentary, and proved that creepy movies don’t have to be mindless. Seriously, watch this flick a second time if you get a chance.

Star Trek TNG Honest Trailer

Star Trek TNG Honest Trailer

While only a handful of us will likely subscribe to CBS All Access to watch every episode of Star Trek: Discovery, there are still plenty of places we can rewatch The Next Generation. Screen Junkies is here to remind why we loved the NCC-1701-D and its motley crew.

Memento Honest Trailer

Memento Honest Trailer

Screen Junkies takes on the film that put Christopher Nolan on the map, and established his knack for making mindbending and perplexing movies that make you want to go back and watch them 15 times to figure out everything that just happened.

Logan Honest Trailer

Logan Honest Trailer

(Spoilers) Screen Junkies reminds us that not every superhero needs to be bombastic, consequence-free, CGI eye-candy, and instead a solid story, compelling characters, and a little gravitas properly applied can produce a great film, superheroes or not. And Deadpool agrees.

Aliens Honest Trailer

Aliens Honest Trailer

While the original Alien was the scariest of the franchise, Aliens was the most thrilling, thanks in large part to director James Cameron. Like a good celebrity roast, Screen Junkies is here to tear down what is still one of our favorite sequels of all time. Game over man. Game over.

The Social Network Honest Trailer

The Social Network Honest Trailer

Screen Junkies smacks down Aaron Sorkin and David Fincher’s film about the world’s largest social network, which apparently was started by some of the most antisocial people on the planet. Er wait, is this entire movie Fake News? Time to rework the algorithm.

X-Men: Apocalypse Honest Trailer

X-Men: Apocalypse Honest Trailer

Whether you loved it, hated it, or just thought it was “meh” like we did, the guys at Screen Junkies are here to shoot all kinds of holes in the latest X-Men film, and reminding us that sometimes the best thing you can do with a beloved franchise is give it some time off.

Jaws Honest Trailer

Jaws Honest Trailer

Screen Junkies is more flattering than usual as it recalls Steven Spielberg’s 1975 breakthrough classic, an amazing, memorable low-budget thriller that laid the groundwork for some of the best and worst genres of movies to follow.

Honest Trailer: The Martian

Honest Trailer: The Martian

Matt Damon gets himself into all kinds of situations where he needs to be rescued. ScreenJunkies dishes out their typical snarkiness towards Ridley Scott’s surprisingly lighthearted sci-fi rescue flick, in which the least realistic part of the movie was NASA’s funding.
