I don’t care about the Snyder Cut of the Justice League movie. I can remember mildly enjoying all of Zack Snyder’s DC Comics movies in the theaters, but time has curdled that opinion and I don’t care for Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice or Justice League. So if we’re drawing lines in the sand, I am definitely not one of those fanboys who was desperate for Zack Snyder’s director’s cut of Justice League.
I thought the whole idea was as much a joke as this Honest Trailers video on the subject.
But earlier this week, Warner Bros. has announced that they will release the massive, 4-hour Snyder’s Cut of Justice League next year to attract viewers to their upcoming HBO Now streaming service. Gotta have something to offer people to get them to subscribe to yet another streaming service; and someone thought pandering to the fanboys was the right choice.
We’ll see. I’ll probably watch the Snyder Cut some how when it’s out, but I’m fairly certain it’s going to be as bad as the rest of Snyder’s DC output. Such is life.
Since I no longer have comics to talk about, it’s a good thing I’ve saved up a couple of good YouTube videos to use on lazy Fridays like this one. Arguably, I should have plenty of time to write up some original pieces for this blog, but I have not yet transitioned out of the ‘lay on my couch staring at my ceiling’ phase of quarantine.
So how about the Honest Trailer of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker!
Ha, yeah. The movie was all those things. In time, I’m probably going to feel the same way about The Rise of Skywalker as I do the other new Star Wars movies. Which is that it’s fine, but I just don’t care.
How about the Honest Trailer for Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey?
Also a movie I enjoyed. I’m sad it wasn’t a success and we probably won’t get a sequel of any kind. But at least we’ve got parody videos!
This strikes me as a very casual week, so lets cap it off with a couple of Honest Trailers I haven’t gotten around to sharing. I love me a good Honest Trailer, and I’ve got a couple of doozies today!
Like the Honest Trailer for the hit film Knives Out, one of my favorites from last year!
Knives Out was a great movie! And it’s on DVD, so feel free to go out and rent it if you haven’t seen it yet!
Meanwhile, how about an Honest Trailer for Frozen 2?
I liked Frozen 2, though obviously it wasn’t t he runaway hit that the first one was. I’m ready for Frozen 3. I’m also ready for Disney to reveal that Elsa is gay. That’s a drum I’m ready to just keep beating!
I saved the most boring for last! Terminator: Dark Fate!
Let us hope this is the end of the Terminator franchise for a nice, long time.
Let’s ease into our lives this morning with a bit of fun parody video. The fine folks at Honest Trailers have done up Spider-Man: Far From Home. It was a fine movie, and it’s out on DVD! So let’s all enjoy its fineness.
Ah, that’s some good, quality content. More than enough to sustain my need for entertainment on this fine Monday. But I’m off from work, got no responsibilities and I think I’ll go play some video games and relax. You all have a good day.
I enjoyed Godzilla: King of the Monsters in the theaters, but all these months later, it’s a pretty forgettable film. The monster fights were cool, but the human parts were boring as hell, and I can’t really recall anything from that movie — other than the cool Mothra twins reveal.
Whereas I have a lot of fond, badass memories of that first Godzilla in the reboot…
I’m just saying, people crap on that first Godzilla too much. The delayed gratification worked perfectly, exactly how it was meant to. But I suppose King of the Monsters is cool enough, with Honest Trailers nailing all the right points.
Next up is Godzilla vs. King Kong!
