  1. lol, Epic Movie Trailer Prank is genius.

    Also, Choking Hazard Man. I love how they take our favourite movies and make us love them even more with their hilarity.

    • I know your Uncle Sean. He’s a lying bastard.

      • I was replying to spam in case you’re wondering.

  2. Honest trailers is incredible.

    • Honest trailers *are incredible

      ZING!! GRAMMAR NAZI STRIKES AGAIN!!!!

      • sry… couldnt resist…

        I could be wrong too since you could argue that “Honest Trailers” is a title and doesnt have to be treated as a plural noun. If that makes sense.

        • I should have put it in quotes to denote title. Hmph.

  3. What if girls were internet browsers is quite frankly, ignorant. “Let’s just dress girls up in the colors of the browser’s logo!” My 10 year old niece could have interpreted them better.

  4. Honest Trailers- Ironman 3 knocked it out of the park. This is why Ironman 3 was garbage. This is why I laugh (and shudder) when I people say it was the best movie of the summer. Lame.

    Now if they can make a Man of Steel one we can start straightening out the kinks in our community of “Film Critics”

    Never thought ‘Honest Trailers’ would be more straight forward than ‘EWW Movie Sins’.

    • Neither IM3 nor Man of Steel were well-crafted movies, but both were at least mildly entertaining, as proven by their box office receipts. I loved the “sidelined by the whispers of children” quip.

    • I thought the complete opposite. Most of the criticisms in the trailer could be explained away pretty easily.

      He didn’t call the Avengers/SHIELD partially because the most useful members (Thor and Hulk) would be unavailable for obvious reasons and mostly because there wasn’t much of an opportunity for him to do so. Let’s look at the film’s events in chronological order, shall we? He was taken by surprise by the missile attack at his home, so he couldn’t call him there. Same when he ran into those two Extremis goons when investigating. The infiltration of the Mandarin’s home was mostly stealthy. If SHIELD had turned up, it would’ve turned into a huge gunfight and the Mandarin might’ve gotten away. SHIELD wouldn’t have been able to arrive fast enough to stop the fake Iron Patriot (and Tony called the VP anyway so he didn’t need to call SHIELD) and they probably wouldn’t have arrived in time for the final climax either.

      I’ll admit Tony doesn’t spend much that time in the suit (if only because he’s mostly controlling it from elsewhere). Whether or not that’s a bad thing, however, is up in the air.

      As for their complaint that the Mark 42 falls apart too easily… uh, that’s kinda the entire point of the suit. It’s built to come apart. As for the rest of the suits coming apart, a) Tony built a lot of them having barely slept or even tested them and b) Extremis soldiers not only have super strength but incredibly hot skin. If heat doesn’t melt metal entirely, then it at least softens it and makes it easier to tear apart. Also, the suits were hollow and, if easter eggs have told us anything, hollow things are easier to break than object solid throughout.

      The Mandarin twist… yeah, I think that was a flaw. Admittedly, I think it’s a flaw that people are blowing way out of proportion, but a flaw nonetheless. I couldn’t care less about this ‘they ruined the Mandarin’ rubbish (mostly because that’s not true since Killian was the Mandarin), but it’s a simple fact that Kingsley made a superior villain to Pearce.

      As for the claim that ‘Tony was being too lax/stupid after challenging the Mandarin’, let’s point out some very simple facts here. As far as Tony knows, the Mandarin is just some tinpot terrorist who can only organise a few minor bombings and has almost no chance of reaching him. It’s like if Brad Pitt threatened Osama bin Laden (I know he’s dead, but couldn’t think of a better example). Do you really think Pitt would be battering down the hatches? But even ignoring that, Tony was attacked THE SAME DAY he made the announcement. Heck, probably only a few hours afterwards. Even if Tony thought the Mandarin wielded enough power to get to him, he certainly wouldn’t expect him to launch a full attack only a few hours after he threatened him. (Fridge Brilliance there for people realising Killian had a plane set up to take his revenge on Tony for a long while and this merely gave him an excuse to do so.) He couldn’t have activated any of his iron man suits as a) there’d probably be rubble covering the exit and b) they’d probably just end up getting hit + destroyed anyway.

      Also, people really need to stop getting so annoyed that Pepper dealth the finishing blow to Killian.

      • Wow. That ended up a lot bigger than I was expecting.

        • Bigger than you were expecting but right nonetheless.

          Honestly, I laughed at the Honest Trailers video but I still don’t see why people had any issues with the movie or the Mandarin twist.

          Wasn’t the best movie of the summer, mainly because over here, April counts as a Spring month and also because Pacific Rim stands head and shoulders above every other movie released this year in terms of quality in my personal opinion but it was better than some of the whiny morons give it credit for.

          It’s almost like the people who hated IM3 and thought it sucked are trying to create an anti-Marvel backlash so that if they do ever manage to release a horrible movie and people don’t trust them so much, these people can say “I was there first”.

        • that’s what she said!

          zing

        • but seriously, well said.

      • Couldn’t have done a better job of explaining it myself. People seem to forget some critical aspects of the fourth wall. Namely, as the audience we are privileged to far more information than Tony has. WE know we’re going into the theaters to watch him battle a super villain (even if it’s a different one than we expected), Tony would have no reason to assume as much. Ironman stopped an alien invasion and saved the island of Manhattan, do you really think he’d be worried about a run-of-the-mill terrorist? In fact, I would find it far less believable if the man who privitized world peace was sitting at home waiting in his battle-ready Mark 7 armor. Instead, being the sarcastic and fecetious character that he is, he’s walking around in his clearly unfinished, but obviously favorite, invention the mark 42. If nothing else as a joke to himself, making it clear he isn’t afraid of the Mandarin.

        Unfortunately this leads him to being unprepared for when he actually does get into trouble, as this suit was never meant for battle or sustained activity, thus battery issues. Add that with JARVIS malfunctioning and he had no way to activate his other suits from across the country until he’s reunited with his Mark 42 at the mansion. Watch it again and you’ll see he calls them at the first real opportunity that he has. Malibu to Miami is a pretty decent flight, even for his armor though.

        For the claims that he should’ve immediately called the House Party protocol when he was attacked: well, yeah obviously. I’m sure he thought the same thing afterwards. but if you’ve ever been in a fist fight you know, you don’t exactly think totally clear when you’re in the thick of it. For every fight I’ve been in, I think afterwards, “I should’ve just tackled him” or something like that. Put yourself in his shoes when he’s freaking out about saving Pepper and tell me you’d think if every logical thing to do.

        Finally, from when he is attacked at home to the battle at the Roxxon-Norco, it’s a matter of, what, a day? maybe two? I’d say being sucker punched at home, caught without his armor and still beating two super soldiers, exposing a corrupt politician at the highest form of government, saving a plane full of people, and taking down an small army of super humans in that span is pretty damn impressive, even for iron man. so let Pepper have the final shot, Tony did everything else.

        • Oh, and am I the only one who think Aldrich Killian was the MCU’s Fin Fang Foom? I mean, they can’t actually put a dragon from space into a movie and expect to make money, so I think that’s the best interpretation we can get. which is downright awesome. Think about it: gave the Mandarin his “power”, breathes fire, rapid regeneration, martial arts… All of which are his canonical attributes. I mean, they even had the dragon tattoos on his chest. That’s a WAY better villain than Mandarin. I always thought his ring powers were kinda whack anyways.

      • “He didn’t call the Avengers/SHIELD partially because the most useful members (Thor and Hulk) would be unavailable for obvious reasons and mostly because there wasn’t much of an opportunity for him to do so.”

        Negated by the fact that he called up Bruce Banner in the credits sequence. The Hulk was there, Tony knew how to contact him, and I would’ve welcomed seeing Killian get Hulksmashed rather than having him die from the hands of Pepper Potts.

        “He was taken by surprise by the missile attack at his home, so he couldn’t call him there.”

        “Tony was attacked THE SAME DAY he made the announcement. Heck, probably only a few hours afterwards. Even if Tony thought the Mandarin wielded enough power to get to him, he certainly wouldn’t expect him to launch a full attack only a few hours after he threatened him. (Fridge Brilliance there for people realising Killian had a plane set up to take his revenge on Tony for a long while and this merely gave him an excuse to do so.) He couldn’t have activated any of his iron man suits as a) there’d probably be rubble covering the exit and b) they’d probably just end up getting hit + destroyed anyway.”

        He was clearly expecting trouble due to the fact that he was armored up after he gave out his address. The mansion was hit in that rare moment when he took his armor off. Had they attacked 5 minutes earlier he would’ve been ready for them.

        “As for the rest of the suits coming apart, a) Tony built a lot of them having barely slept or even tested them and b) Extremis soldiers not only have super strength but incredibly hot skin. If heat doesn’t melt metal entirely, then it at least softens it and makes it easier to tear apart.”

        Doesn’t stop the fact that the same suit that fought Thor in hand to hand combat, and the other suit that took a direct hit from a tank in the first movie was destroyed by a single helicopter missile.

        Heat? Thor struck Iron Man with lightning. Lighting has been calculated to be upwards of 54,000 degrees, five times hotter than the surface of the sun. Tony didn’t seem to mind at all.

        Movie is flawed.

        • ‘Negated by the fact that he called up Bruce Banner in the credits sequence. The Hulk was there, Tony knew how to contact him, and I would’ve welcomed seeing Killian get Hulksmashed rather than having him die from the hands of Pepper Potts.’

          Oh yeah, because I’m certain Bruce would’ve been totally okay with just letting the Hulk run rampage wherever.

          ‘He was clearly expecting trouble due to the fact that he was armored up after he gave out his address. The mansion was hit in that rare moment when he took his armor off. Had they attacked 5 minutes earlier he would’ve been ready for them.’

          What are you talking about? He was simply messing about with his new armour like he was at the beginning of the movie. Probably trying to show off in front of Maya, if the way he declared ‘You’re not the Mandarin’ didn’t tip you off. If he was really expecting trouble (and there’s nothing to suggest he was), he would have all his armours ready and he’d be suited up in his tested, battle-ready armours like armour 7.

          ‘Doesn’t stop the fact that the same suit that fought Thor in hand to hand combat, and the other suit that took a direct hit from a tank in the first movie was destroyed by a single helicopter missile.’

          I’d point out that the tank in the first movie was firing Sidewinder missiles designed to take down aircraft. Aircraft don’t need much to be destroyed, so Sidewinders aren’t that strong. The missiles fired from the helicopters on the other hand, are much more powerful and likely designed to be strong enough to take down an iron man suit, especially if you subscribe to their theory that Killian had this plan ready to take down Tony for a long time.

          Also, when he was fighting Thor, he was moving around in the suit and making it difficult for Thor to get him.

          ‘Heat? Thor struck Iron Man with lightning. Lighting has been calculated to be upwards of 54,000 degrees, five times hotter than the surface of the sun. Tony didn’t seem to mind at all.’

          Pfft. Like you seriously expect a comic book movie to subscribe to a scientifically accurate picture of lightning. Besides, Thor just shot lightning at Tony. He never tried to rip Tony’s head off with a lightning charged hand.

          ‘Movie is flawed.’
          True, but those not by those flaws.

      • I think that the fanboys have a problem with every aspect of Iron Man 3 ònly because of the Mandarin twist.

  5. Well Lou Ferrigno cameo’d in both Hulk movies. So I guess this could work if the petition works.

  6. They should have a scene in Batman Vs Superman, where Clark is watching tv and flips past Somewhere In Time.

    • Dang it, somebody pay attention to me!!!!!

  7. Excuse me, are you talking to yourself?

    …yeah.

    (resumes epic voice): The guy who is too stupid to know better…

    Dang, I’m gonna be laughing about that one all week now.

  8. While I didn’t like IM3 as much as others did, I think the Honest Trailers were kind of mocking everyone who attacked the twist for all the wrong reasons.

  9. Cracked up at ‘Osama Ben Kingsley’ and holy crap, the guy can do Optimus! No need to fret when Peter Cullen kicks it.
