Very original idea that has become a little stale
16 October 2015 | by borkoboardoSee all my reviews

Who cannot remember his/her first honest trailer? What a blast it was! From that moment on it's a catching-up-game to watch them all.

Honest trailers to me is very comparable to South Park - which also had very good and most of all diverse ideas at the beginning but after they had to produce season after season it became very formulaic and "by the books". The same thing happened to honest trailers - one might argue it is because I'm now used to the concept. But still, when I watch older Honest Trailers the laughing comes instantly back.

There may be more than just one reason for this. One is definitely the choice of movies as the makers primarily choose current blockbusters or all-time-classic blockbusters which are very formulaic in their nature, leaving not much room for parody. Therefore most argumentations are based on the same flaws in those movies, and subsequently very similar.

Also Honest Trailers work mostly on bad films which are made with good intentions but fail to convince. But the fans demand Honest Trailers for basically every current blockbuster (good and bad) and so it also happens that movies are picked which are actually very good (Fight Club, Forrest Gump, Ang Lee's Hulk, etc) to create an artificial parody about points which aren't very just.

Still, the idea is highly original and here and there a good one pops up - not as frequent in quality as it used to but therefore in quantity. Almost every Screen Junkies box out a new one. Maybe that's also a reason for the decline in quality, but I don't give up hope! I'm still always happy when a new one comes out!
