With great power comes endless rebooting of rehashed material, at least according to Screen Junkies. So many people were demanding it, that Honest Trailers decided to take on The Amazing Spider-Man, the movie that absolutely NO ONE demanded but that Sony had to do to retain the rights to the character.
The honest depiction of the movie? It follows a likeable, stuttering stalker who easily walks into a high security lab and gets bitten by a radioactive spider. Then he’s forced to take on a villain with the most stereotypical origin story in superhero history and happens to be very important to Peter Parkers life.

Instead of reading boring, snobby movie reviews, from now on I’m just going to head straight to Screen Junkies‘ Honest Trailers. In this episode, they take on Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, a confusing, movie chronicling explorers journeying to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they are forced to fight a terrifying battle to save the human race. [Sound cue: Dum, dum, dum.]
The clip, directed by Andy Signore and Brett Weiner, points out all the plot inconsistencies and strange character developments.
In the past, Honest Movie Trailers took on The Hunger Games and The Avengers. With Halloween around the corner it’s the perfect time to take on a horror movie. Which would you like to see them do? How about Scream? The teen sexfest starring 90s-relevant actors who blindly run into the danger instead of away from it.

That’s why Screen Junkies created Honest Trailers. Their newest video is for The Hunger Games, which is funny because I actually enjoyed both the movie and trailer. Still, when the narrator plainly states the plot and facts, you realize how silly it can come off.
If Transformers was marketed correctly, this is how the trailer would look. From the horse-faced director who starts shooting before finishing scripts, and the children’s cartoon designed to sell toys, comes the movie designed to sell toys. That’s how this honest trailer for
Battleship Transformers begins.
The movie stars Burger King, eBay, GMC, X-Box, Mountain Dew and Chevrolet. It also features a stuttering teenager and gratuitous porny shots of Megan Fox. ”Seriously, it’s f*cking stupid,” says epic narrator guy.
Now this movie I would actually see. Oh, and these guys have Honest Trailers for Twilight and Titanic too.
