Honest Movie Trailers from Screen Junkies

avengers
Okay, so I don’t usually just randomly plop YouTube recommendations on my blog. But OH EM GEE you guys! You have to see this!
Jonathan and I discovered these videos on YouTube and could not stop watching. We were devouring these things like they were some kind of crack laden mind candy. I was laughing so hard I was crying.. I just.. you gotta.. I mean.. just WATCH!
I discovered this channel when my mum posted the Honest Movie Trailer of Frozen on my Facebook wall saying, “This reminds me of your review of Frozen”. My review of the movie kind of, uhh, shall we say, ruffled the feathers of a few Disney fanatics with far more blind devotion than I could muster for a lackluster film. (Read my controversial review here.) Fellow Disney geeks acted like I’d gone traitor on the Big D or something. (Which, now that I’ve typed that out, it kind of sounds like a creative euphemism for coming out of the closet. I’m so creative sometimes!) Anyway, I was LMAO watching this. How have I not discovered this channel before now?! Check it out!

After the Honest Frozen Trailer, we ended up planting ourselves by the computer and watching a huge YouTube marathon of Screen Junkies hilarious “Honest Trailers” for classics like Jurassic Park and Independence Day, to burn your eyes out lemons like Avatar the Last Air Bender and Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull.
But the one for The Avengers.. Jonathan and I had to watch it twice we were laughing so hard. And OMG, had anyone else ever realized the little story line wrinkle mentioned at 2:40??! I have watched this movie a bazillion and a half times, and I had never, never, EVER considered that. I actually laughed so hard I gave myself asthma! (In case you were wondering what a classy geek I be.)

Anyway, Screen Junkies comes out with a new Honest Trailer every other Tuesday. I try to resist the evil siren call of YouTube channel surfing because, well, I generally like my entire life NOT sucked into my computer monitor (ya know, more so than it already is with my keeping up this blog). But I foresee a ton of trolling of this new channel in the future! I just had to share with you guys… so check it out!

So have you seen these guys on YouTube before? What is your favorite Honest Trailer?

    I k new you’d get a kick out of those! I just love that they ask all the questions that we all do with even films we love. I liked Frozen much better than you did, but I was asking all the questions the “Honest” trailer poses…Plus some extra that deal with my background in the occult/Earth Magic. I absolutely loved some of the characterizations, but boy, some of the plot holes could swallow up a condo! So, this honest trailer is perfect. I especially like that they riffed on John Travolta mangling of Idina Menzel’s name at the Oscars. That had me ROTFLing. hehe.

      Yeah, those are pretty dang epic. I could NOT stop watching.. had you ever thought about the earpiece thing with the last battle?? Jon was like, “No! They probably had bluetooths in their helmets?” I’m like, “Really? So Thor had one in his hair? And Black Widow had one in her, I dunno, boobs?” So then he moved on to, “Well MAYBE hey had subdermal microphone implants…”

    Haha…this reminds me a bit of — what’s it called? — MS3tk? I’m off to watch all of them between writing articles now…

    I love your flippant and fun posts, Gingi; never would encounter some of this stuff without it.
