Making Fun of Those Chevy Commercials is Never Not Funny

I see a lot of movies thanks to MoviePass. But do you know the worst part of seeing so many movies? Seeing the same boring trailers over and over again. I’ve seen the Mission Impossible: Fallout trailer so many times that it’s painful to watch again.

My local theater also plays one of those really annoying Chevy car commercials before every movie. You know the commercials. Thankfully, we’ve got the fine folks at Zebra Corner to mock t he hell out of them!

I was waiting for them to parody that family commercial and Mahk and the gang did a great job! Hooray Internet comedy!

If You’ve Got Ron Howard, Use Him

Ron Howard was brought in to re-direct Solo: A Star Wars Story. So somebody at Star Wars decided to put him to good use with a nifty Arrested Development parody.

That’s good stuff. Easily my favorite trailer for Solo yet!

Honestly, I Didn’t Care for Baby Driver

Normally, I’m a huge Edgar Wright fan. He’s second only to Wes Anderson in terms of my favorite directors. And I couldn’t wait for Baby Driver last year — but I didn’t particularly care for it. At least we’ve got Honest Trailers for it.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very well-made movie with a lot of energy and verve. But the music choices were a little too obscure for me, and some of the characters rubbed me the wrong way, and I didn’t like some of the choices, like the big finale being a parking garage fight instead of a really badass car chase.

Also, when the evil bad guys want to go to that diner following the shootout with the cops, but Baby wants to keep his girlfriend safe, why not just tell them that he frequents that diner and they know him there, which wouldn’t be safe for their getaway? Just sayin’…

Honestly, I Really Didn’t Like The Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman is not a good movie. It’s schmaltzy as all heck and focuses on the wrong protagonist, not to mention turning notorious monster P.T. Barnum into a Hugh Jackman leading man. Good thing Honest Trailers takes it down a notch!

It’s so refreshing to listen to somebody else explain a lot of the things I disliked about the movie. Such is the power of confirmation bias. The songs weren’t even that memorable. Best let this one be forgotten.

It’s More Than Half Cafe Scene and In-Jokes

OK, so, here’s the thing: I like the How It Should Have Ended cartoons. It’s an awesome premise, they’re usually hilarious and the animation and voice-acting are superb. It’s some of the best stuff on YouTube.

But they are really, really in love with themselves and their in-jokes. I have to imagine the fans love all the times they cut to Batman and Superman hanging out in a cafe, or the Villains Pub stuff. And if that’s where the money is, fine. I can’t blame anyone for that. But I’m here for the comedic alternate endings to popular movies…

I think this Justice League episode gets a little meta, but I’m not sure. Parts of it are funny. But then it cuts away from quality parody to an extended cafe bit. And then ends with an extended Villains Pub bit.

I’m just sayin’, guys! I’m just sayin’!
