The 2018 Oscars Get the Honest Trailers Treatment

Whether you’re a film fan or not, there’s really so much to look forward to come Oscars season. After all, the Oscars is supposed to highlight the best of the best in Hollywood, a statement that is a contradiction in itself. There are many Internet institutions that poke fun at the annual race for greatness, but one of our all-time favorites is Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers. If you aren’t familiar with Honest Trailers at all, a simple YouTube search will get you up to speed to this year’s Oscars Special.

The top contenders for the Oscars this year are also the subjects of ridicule of this trailer. It has been a tradition each year for Screen Junkies to come up with an Honest Trailer, but this year is proving to be extra special with all the extra special films that we saw at the end of last year.

First of all, let’s tackle the romantic films because the nominees this year are just as creepy as Screen Junkies claim them to be–with the art element taken away, of course. One happens to be a love story between a woman and a fish, and the other is an affair between a grown man and a teenager. Cue in all the cinematic magic and stirring soundtracks and we’re all googly eyes, at least until Honest Trailers shows us the truth about what’s really going on–just a fish and a woman hugging each other and of course, men and boys without shirts running amuck in Italy. That’s basically The Shape of Water and Call Me by Your Name for you.

Next, the racial factor has to be mentioned because there will be no Oscars if there are no racial talks. Especially with the mishap during last year’s Best Picture awarding, Honest Trailers have set up the movie Get Out as a platform to “Let the White People In.” In addition, they have turned Three Billboards into Three Racists. How racist indeed! And did somebody say Sam Rockwell or that guy?

Talented actor Daniel Day Lewis has also been the cause of a chortle, especially when they purposefully mistook him for Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye. He’s a great actor, but did Honest Trailers call it overkill? Maybe, for his movie about obsession, DDL might have gone a bit too far. Then there’s Dunkirk, The Post, and that Winston Churchill film. They’ve all begun to look the same, haven’t they? Thanks to Honest Trailers, we’ve learned how to identify which one had Gary Oldman in it, which one had Meryl Streep in it, and which one had all the explosives in it.

Lastly, the trailer couldn’t have ended without flashing through all the magnificent superhero films we witnessed last year. From Wonder Woman to Spiderman: Homecoming, each superhero film was basically introduced in the trailer as the beer buzz that immediately disappeared as soon as the film was over. Fun while it lasted but soon easily forgotten. Thanks Honest Trailers for laying it all out simply for us to see. We can’t wait to see which movie title or actor will be mistakenly read for whatever category this year.
