Welp, things are pretty crazy in America these days. But this isn’t a political blog, so let’s waste a Friday watching the Honest Trailer for Shawshank Redemption! Didn’t that movie come out decades ago? Yep! But there are no new movies coming out, and Screen Junkies needs something to parody!
This was a solid effort. Shawshank Redemption is a masterpiece, and might as well get this classic internet treatment. And now I’m gonna just go relax.
Honestly, I’m very excited about The Mandalorian’s return. It’s a fun show, it’s an exciting show, I enjoy Star Wars; what’s not to love? Honest Trailers is definitely excited!
All of that makes sense to me! I can’t wait to see what surprises are in store for this upcoming episode and season. Will we get Boba Fett? Will we get Ahsoka Tano? Only time and upcoming weeks will tell!
It was recently announced that the next big update for the Avengers video game — the one bringing Kate Bishop to the game, the first new character — has been pushed off indefinitely. The developers think their game will have the legs to survive…but will it really? Honestly?
The Avengers video game was, ultimately, not for me. The game turned out to be exactly what I thought it was going to be, and it just didn’t work for me. I played a friend’s copy through the campaign, and that was fun enough. And I could probably see myself losing myself to the grind just to get fancier costumes. But nah. I set my controller down and uninstalled the game from my PC. And with Kate Bishop pushed off, there’s no reason going back anytime soon.
The Fandom Games guys are right on the dang money!
I still love the show Firefly. I haven’t watched it in a while, so maybe it really shows it’s age, but it was a great show and it’s early cancellation still stings. It also hearts when Honest Trailers mocks the show!
Oh, my beloved Firefly…you don’t deserve any of that. But I can’t say that Honest Trailers wasn’t honest. Life is harsh.
Meanwhile, in case you’re looking for new YouTube to blindly watch, I stumbled upon one of those “reaction” YouTubers a couple weeks ago. There’s a million of them, but I like the charm of this Natalie Gold person I found. And she recently started a “First Time Watching” marathon of Firefly episodes.
She’s got a bunch of other videos, watching movies and shows for the first time. She’s only a couple months into her new career as a YouTube reactor. So again, if you’re looking for something new to watch on YouTube, Natalie Gold is mildly recommended.
Let’s just make fun of everybody! Honest Trailers takes a shot at all of the streaming services! Take those weirdos down a peg.
I’m a big fan of the streaming service utopia we live in these days. Instead of paying for cable, I can pick and choose which shows I specifically want to see and just go straight to watching them. And I feel like Netflix and the like are more open to trying out wilder and weirder shows than network or cable TV.
Vive le streaming services!
