The Boss Baby
- The Boss Baby (aka Glenbaby Glen Boss)
- The Narrator spends almost all of the trailer completely flabbergasted at the movie's workings.
- Noting how Boss Baby combines Alec Baldwin's bossiest roles, noting the "Cookies are for closers" line is lifted from Glengarry Glen Ross, and the Boss Baby crying and getting the parents to run over is lifted from his portrayal of Donald Trump in Saturday Night Live.
- The Narrator can't tell whether the movie is supposed to be All Just a Dream or Real After All.Narrator: Because Tim falls asleep at the beginning, so it's fake. But then the mom is actually pregnant, so it's real. But it's all from Tim's point of view, so it's fake. But the parents acknowledge the baby is wearing a suit, so it must be real.
Mom: He's like a little man!
Narrator: But the action is shown to be exaggerated, so it's fake. But Tim records the baby actually talking, so that's real! But the parents never hear the tape, so it's fake! But the parents do hear the baby talk, so it's real! But at the end, grown up Tim says it's just how he remembers it, so it's fake!! But his daughter is also a Boss Baby, so it's real!! AHHHHHH!!! Stop it, movie!! I can't take it anymore!! YOU'VE BROKEN ME!!!
- It (2017) (aka Stephen Kings)
- The Narrator's opening remarks.
- The perfect description of the Losers Club: "Kids who'd beat One Direction fans in a screaming contest". It then cuts to scenes of them doing just that.
- The Running Gag about how this film features one of the kids from Stranger Things (Finn Wolfhard), another work that features a lot of nostalgia about The '80s. He then goes on to elaborate that this inevitably leads back to making a person nostalgic for It (1990).Narrator: And the circle is complete.

(Richie), OG Chunk (Ben), Young Sheldon (Eddie), Justice For Bev (Beverly), But Doctor, I Am Pagliachi (Pennywise), and Insane Clown Posse (The Losers Club).
- Get Out (aka The Stepford Whites)
- After sincerely praising the film's Foreshadowing, Epic Voice Guy talks about the plot holes such as brains aging just as fast as humans, which means the Armitage's immortality gambit wouldn't even give them borrowed time, nobody noticing the people Rose dated going missing, and Rose eating Froot Loops separate from the milk, leading to him asking if that actually is a thing white people do.
Transformers: The Last Knight
- Showgirls (aka Strip Up 2 The Streets)
- Every shot of bare beeewbs in the trailer is censored with a smiling Hal Rudnick.
- Calling the movie's infamous sex scene on a pool as something that happens between a man and a particularly aggressive fish, while also noting that it is exactly how you get a yeast infection.
- Summing up the flick's Fetish Retardant: "Do you like sex? Well, not for long!"
The Blade Trilogy
- Justice League (aka Warner Bros. Presents Joss Whedon's Zack Snyder's Justice League Part One ...of One)
- In the intro:
- The Narrator describing the film's Troubled Production:Narrator: In the midst of a production beset by tragedy, Warner Bros. bravely forged ahead... so executives could keep their bonuses [shows article titled "WB Refused to Delay Justice League Release So That Executives Could Keep Their Bonuses"], mixing Zack Snyder's trademark gloom with the optimism of Joss Whedon, and the priorities of Brett Ratner's production company [shows scenes from the film focusing on Diana/Wonder Woman's rear]
- The Take That! directed at the Zack Snyder fanboys:Narrator: Man, I wish Warner Bros would release the Snyder Cut already! Also: Man, I wish that the Snyder Cut wasn't a made-up fanboy pipe dream.
- Of course the Honest Trailer mentions to the debacle about Henry Cavill's mustache having to be CGI'd out resulting in Special Effect Failure:
- First, when noting the conspiciously high use of CGI ever for comic book superhero movie standards:Narrator: This CGI villain steals these CGI boxes from their CGI hiding places, uniting these CGI heroes in a big CGI fight, on a CGI battle field, until this CGI hero merges with this CGI box, while this CGI villain gets punched in the mouth by the hero with a mouth made out of CGI. Ugh, that just looks... wrong.
- Later, when listing the heroes, the Narrator can't even do the Running Gag from the Man of Steel and Batman v Superman Honest Trailers about drooling over Cavill's "aaabs!"Narrator: Superman... eh... agh... uh... God! Mouth is so distracting! Poor Henry Cavill worked out for months for this role, but all I can look at is his weird fake baby mouth. They really couldn't shave his mustache? Or grow a beard? Or, you know, delay the movie?
- First, when noting the conspiciously high use of CGI ever for comic book superhero movie standards:
- Referring to Aquaman as "BROSEIDON, KING OF THE BROCEAN!"
- The Narrator refering to Steppenwolf's habit of refering to the Mother Boxes as just "Mother" as "no character since Buster Bluth has ever been this much of a mother lover."
- Starring: A Wad of Tin Foil Scrunched Around a Laser Pointer (Cyborg), Jason Moana (Aquaman), The DCEU Hunger Games Champion (Wonder Woman), Super Side Eye (Superman doing a side eye), The Voice of Warner Brothers (Alfred saying "We might not have thought this through."), Deathpool.

The Oscars (2018)
- In the intro:Narrator: It's time once again for the Oscars, Hollywood's anual show for the best films released between late November and late December. Only one of these nine films will win the coveted title of Best Picture... unless the guy in charge of the result screws up because he was on his phone backstage and they accidentally give it to someone else. Best. Oscars. EVER.
- Darkest Hour (aka Grumpy Oldman)Narrator: You've seen Dunkirk's breathless portrayal of heroism in the face of death. Now, prepare for a movie about all the talking that was going on at the same time.
Winston Churchill: Stop interrupting me while I'm interrupting you!
Narrator: And get ready for Gary Oldman acting like you've never seen him before: In a fat suit. Hey, I'll take wearing a fat suit to win an Oscar over eating a bison liver or something really bad, like being Casey Affleck.
- The Shape of Water (aka The Fish Banging Movie)Narrator: From visionary director Guillermo del Toro, who's contractually obligated to be credited as "visionary director Guillermo del Toro," comes a love story between a woman and the fish prisoner in her lab, which sounds creepy when you strip the art away from it, but trust me, in the context of the story, you will totally be okay with this woman having sex with with a fish man; it's actually a beautiful story about finding your own voice, and oh man, this is gonna be known as "The Fish Banging Movie", isn't it?
- Call Me by Your Name (aka Lo-He-ta)Narrator: Set during the great Italian shirt shortage of 1983, comes a touching romance between this grown man and a seventeen-year-old... which also sounds creepy when you strip the art away from it; in this film full of lush cinematography, moving performances, and ground-breaking visual effects that removed Armie Hammer's balls from his shorts. Critics are saying it's "visually stunning," "trascendent," and "one of the most mesmerizing films of the year," while the Peach Farmers Association is saying "That NOT why we grow them... but hey, you do you." [shows the peach scene]
- Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (aka Three Racists Inside Ebbing, Missouri)Narrator: In the sleepy town of Ebbing, Missouri, one wronged mother will fight injustice the only way she knows how: Local advertising; in a film with such powerful performances, you'll stop refering to Sam Rockwell as "That Guy," and start refering to him as "That Guy. Y'know, from Three Billboards..."
- Phantom Thread (aka Method Man)Narrator: You've seen him play historical figures, obsessed mad men, and Hawkeye. [shows Hawkeye from the Marvel Cinematic Universe] No, not that one; the Last of the Mohicans guy. [shows the Hawkeye from The Last of the Mohicans] That's the one. Now witness Daniel Day-Lewis' stunning farewell performance as an obsessed craftsman who has trouble separating his art from his personal life. So, Daniel Day-Lewis? [shows an article titled, "Daniel Day-Lewis didn't break character for three months while filming Lincoln and made cast, crew and Spielberg call him 'Mr. President'"] Huh, some actor!
- Lady Bird (aka Put a Bird on It)Narrator: From Greta Gerwig, the talented actor/director so indie you've definitely pretended to know about her, comes a note perfect coming-of-age story about the most difficult challenge a teenager can face: Having to grow up in Sacramento.
Lady Bird: I want to go where culture is, in New York!
Narrator: Who has such a tough time navigating her friendships, boyfriends and family, you'll almost forgive her for defending Crash by the Dave Matthews Band. Who am I to talk, I listened to Papa Roach in high school.
- Dunkirk (aka Saving Lots of Privates)
- The Post (aka Academy Award Nominee The Post)Narrator: From two-time Academy Award-winning director Steven Spielberg, the Academy Award-winning writer of Spotlight, two-time Academy Award-winner Tom Hanks, and twenty-one-time Academy Award-nominee Meryl Streep, comes a timely movie about the media resisting an unpopular Republican president, in a film so calculated to win Oscars, they might as well have just put "Academy Award nominee" in the title.
- Get Out (aka Let the White Ones In)Narrator: The directorial debut of The Player Formerly Known as Mousecop, and a horror thriller that holds a mirror up to smug affluent white progressives... in other words, the Academy? Well, it's a honor just to be nominated, right guys?
- In the Starring bit, instead of going through a random pick of actors from all the movies, it is instead about all the comic book movies that fans argue were snubbed... and their idea of the categories they should have been nominated for.Thor: Ragnarok, for Best Goldblum
Wonder Woman for Best 2/3 of a Movie
Justice League for Best Picture... But Only The Snyder Cut
Logan for Best Picture for People Who Only Saw Comic Book Movies Last Year note
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 for Best Movie You Enjoyed Then Immediately Forgot About note

Guardians for Best Russian Superhero Movie I Only Saw a Trailer for, But Holy Sh*t One of Them Turns Into a BEAR? How'd I Miss This One?!
- In The Stinger:
- Thor: Ragnarok (aka Flash Thordon)
- Right off the bat, some possible Foreshadowing as the Narrator's first real gripe is with the new Marvel Studios Vanity Plate dragging on a little too long.Narrator: From Marvel Studios... [as the logo is still going] the new logo is still going? Alright, I'll wait. [beat] From... still going. [beat] Alright, here it comes... From Maaarrrvvveeelll... Jeez, how long is this thing? Just cut it off, nobody has time for that. [cuts from the logo just as it's about to end to the film's title card] Great, now we're running behind. It's Thor... Thor: Ragnarok.
- Pointing out how the Thor title's revitalization involved "trimming all the dead weight off the franchise", then shifting to Black Comedy by pointing out that includes his homeland Asgard, "his friends you couldn't name with a gun in your head" (the Warriors Three), his right eye, Odin, his hair, and even Mjolnir.
- And some long-awaited Lampshade Hanging:Narrator: Are we sure Thor's not the adopted one? Put him next to Hela, Loki and a young Anthony Hopkins and tell me he's not the odd one out.
[shows pictures of Thor, Hela, Loki and a young Hopkins, showing that the latter three were all gaunt and with black hair while Thor specifically isn't]
- Similar to the Honest Trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the Narrator notes that Taika Waititi's brand of humor leads the movie to overdoing Mood Whiplash moments, but unlike with Guardians 2, he doesn't seem to be bothered with it.Narrator: Where boring exposition scenes get tagged by jokes...
Surtur: I will tower over the mountains and bury my sword deep in Asgard.
Thor: [struggling with some chains he's suspended from] Hang on...
Narrator: ...badass moments get tagged by jokes...
[shows the scene in which Bruce Banner attempts to force himself to transform into the Hulk by jumping out of a spaceship, but doesn't transform and painfully splats onto the ground]
Narrator: ...and even heartfelt emotional beats get tagged by jokes.
[shows Korg charging at an illusion of Loki dissappearing, shouting "Piss off, ghost!" and kicking a wall, after the scene in which Loki attempts to betray Thor once again, leaving Thor lying on the floor, writhing in pain and heartbroken]
Narrator: Yeah, they overdo it sometimes, but this is a movie where an orgy spaceship shoots fireworks over the Rainbow Bridge while Hulk fights a zombie wolf. If you're mad it tries to make you laugh, too, you're doing it wrong.
- The Narrator stating that the new additions; "depressive, alcoholic" Valkyrie, "a Taika Waititi made of rocks" (Korg), and "a mute bug with knives for arms" (Miek), "still have more personality than the Warriors Three."Narrator: [shows an article explaining that Lady Sif isn't in the movie due to scheduling conficts with her actress] Dodged that bullet, Lady Sif. But don't worry, you still got it coming.
- The Narrator points out that the scene of jumping off one vehicle to hit another vehicle by hand also happened in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and even Black Panther, which came after this movie, which leads the Narrator to an conclusion he's not excited about:
- The Narrator concluding that hopefully, the film taught Marvel an important lesson:Narrator: Don't fire the weirdo! Embrace him, embrace the weirdo! [shows Taika Waititi doing a bunch of silly faces]
- Starring: Happythor.gif (the memetic Big "YES!" shot), I Am Lorde, Ya Ya Ya (Loki), Actual Jeff Goldblum (the Grandmaster), For the Horde!

- Right off the bat, some possible Foreshadowing as the Narrator's first real gripe is with the new Marvel Studios Vanity Plate dragging on a little too long.
- Bright (aka Edgelord of the Rings)
- The trailer begins noting that the film was made by the director of Suicide Squad (David Ayer), the writer of Victor Frankenstein (Max Landis) and a production company called Trigger Warning Entertainment - and points out that those three may not have been the best people to try and make an allegory about race relations.
- The narrator going off on an increasingly frustrated rant about how little the movie made use of its premise of a modern day cop drama set in a world where fantasy creatures have existed for thousands of years, especially how outside of fantasy creatures living among the population, little is different from the actual world:Narrator: [after Will Smith's character makes a reference to Shrek] How does Shrek still exist? Is it a documentary? There's dragons flying around, but our buildings never changed? And what's this centaur cop doing? They never even mention that! You can't just add the word "magic" and claim it's any different from a normal cop movie!
Every Wes Anderson Movie
- Right at the intro, Epic Voice Guy feels that his voice isn't the right fit for Wes Anderson, so he brings in an Alec Baldwin impersonator (Ted Evans), in reference to how Baldwin narrated The Royal Tenenbaums.Alec Baldwin-sounding Narrator: Before you see the whimsical new animated feature from your barista's favorite director, revisit all his meticulously crafted awkward family fables that make you kinda happy, kinda sad, and kinda unsure whether you should laugh or not.
- Listing what you can find in a Wes Anderson film:Alec Baldwin-sounding Narrator: ...featuring more symmetrical shots than you can shake an art department at, more nostalgia than you can cram into a quirky indoor tent, and more whimsy than a lovestruck Boy Scout dancing in his underwear to a lakeside record player. Honestly, after eight movies, I'm not sure if I made up that shot or not. [shows a scene from Moonrise Kingdom depicting exactly that] Oh, there it is.Alec Baldwin-sounding Narrator: Meet a Wes Anderson protagonist. He's definitely not a woman, but an emotionally stunted man suffering from a vague bout of ennui. Watch him deal with a strained parental relationship, sibling rivalries, and maybe an affair, but with the help of a brown subordinate-slash-love-interest, a wardrobe full of dapper menswear, and a classic slow-motion walk, he'll end up happy... I think. It's sort of hard to tell, but that's what makes it artistic.
- When describing the plot of Wes Anderson's films, "Alec Baldwin" realizes early that they all feature one or more disaffected protagonists, a romantic interest for one of the main characters that he sometimes shares with a third person, and some sort of meticulously planned event that goes wrong. The plots get so repetitive that, as "Alec Baldwin" reads them, the Honest Trailer fast forwards faster and faster to get past them.Alec Baldwin-sounding Narrator: It sounds repetitive, but trust me; they're the most charming little things.
- The "Starring" section, which may be in the running for the longest in a Honest Trailer ever:Overhead Shots of Objects, Stage Plays, Funerals, Facial Wounds, Zooms, Shots of Writing, Shots of Typewritten Letters, Whip Pans, Characters Explaining Elaborate Plans, Characters Running Away Suddenly, The Futura Font, Whimsical Names, Face Punches, Characters with Dead Parents; Willem Dafoe, Dead Animals, Willem Dafoe Playing a Dead Animal; Anjelica Huston, Old-Timey Telephones, Anjelica Houston on an Old-Time Telephone; Foreigners, Classic Rock Songs, Oil Paintings, A Foreigner Playing a Classic Rock Song in Front of an Oil Painting; Characters Reading Books, Uniforms, Graveyards, A Character Reading a Book Wearing an Uniform in a Graveyard; Jason Schwartzman, Smoking, Moving Vehicles, Jason Schwartzman Smoking Outside a Moving Vehicle; A Wilson Brother, Strained Sibling Relationships, Exotic Animals, A Wilson Brother and His Estranged Sibling Smoking with an Exotic Animal; Ed Norton, Reel-to-Reel Tape Recorders, Ed Norton Dictating Into a Reel-to-Reel Tape Recorder While Smoking and Wearing an Uniform; Bill Murray, Tiny Motorcycles, Profile Shots, and Bill Murray on a Tiny Motorcycle in a Profile Shot.

And something that I wouldn't mind seeing more of? Is this what hope feels like?

[Cue a red zoom-in on an elephant with a Scare Chord.]
- The narrator describes the story as making you wonder, "When does the next song start?"
- Baby Driver (aka Grand Theft Auto: Wright City)
- Seeing Kevin Spacey in the movie and a lot of Harsher in Hindsight moments, they decide on covering his face with Christopher Plummer. It stays that way for the rest of the trailer.

The Incredible Hulk
- The Incredible Hulk (aka The Disposable Hulk)
- In the intro:
- The narrator first having to get straight which Bruce Banner he is talking about.
- The narrator's description of Edward Norton's performance:Narrator: Edward Norton shines as the first Marvel actor to show off how many crunches he did for the part (Aaaaaaaaabs), and he's bringing his incredible range to a role that has him act like he's on Xanax.
Bruce Banner: [to Betty Ross] I know a few techniques that could help you manage that anger very effectively.
Narrator: While off-camera he's bringing his incredible ego to a full rewrite of the script under the fake name "Edward Harrison." [shows "Edward Harrison" actually getting credited in one poster] Do you want to get Terrence Howard'd? [shows a news article about Howard being replaced as War Machine by Don Cheadle] Because that's how you get Terrence Howard'd.
- Noting the Hulk's Destructive Saviour tendencies:Narrator: [Hulk is] actually a huge danger to the entire planet, the economy of Brazil, [shows the destruction of the Brazilian factory] and all of Harlem. [shows the climatic battle of Harlem] Yeeesh. I'm glad that he flew up to not-Planet Hulk, it would mean there's Earth left for Thanos to punch.
- The narrator's description of the antagonist, Emil Blonsky/The Abomination:Narrator: You've always wanted to see the Hulk match up against a villain that could equal his powers. Well, too bad, because he's fighting the skinny British guy from Reservoir Dogs. He's a decorated veteran with zero personal connection to Bruce Banner and zero threat to the Hulk, but when he shoots himself full of tainted Captain America juice, he'll turn into one of the most forgettable monsters in the MCU, that was so bad, he got his ass kicked all the way to Batman v Superman [shows the Abomination and BvS's Doomsday side by side] Ugh!
- When noting the differences this movie has with subsequent MCU films, the Narrator notes that it didn't make a billion dollars at the box office.
- The Narrator notes that, although Edward Norton may have exited the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he at least later joined Wes Anderson's "Fancy Boy Cinematic Universe."Narrator: Oh man! I cannot wait for The Royal Tenenbaums to fight Steve Zissou in Budapest Hotel: Infinity Floor. [shows J.G.

It wasn't a critical sucess? [shows the film's Rotten Tomatoes page, showing that it got a Rotten score with both critics and audiences] And it was a box office disappointment? And this isn't the first time they screwed up A Wrinkle in Time? That's impossible! I mean, that just doesn't happen to Disney! Is this a dream? No seriously, is this a dream?

[shows Bob throwing his boss across several walls] Hey, heroes don't do that! Unless you're Batman. Batman totally does that.
- The Narrator's description of Syndrome:Narrator: Cower before one of the best supervillains of all time: Syndrome.

- The Narrator finally goes deep into his belief that it's a better adaptation of the Fantastic Four than the actual movies.Narrator: Enjoy the best Fantastic Four movie never made, that fixes all the flaws from those awful, awful films: Having its four heroes feel like a real family, not treating their powers like a joke, and making it so Mr. Fantastic is married to the Thing, which is... way hotter. I mean, better. I mean... Dammit! They're just both so thicc.

Doctor Who (Classic)
- Doctor Who (Classic) (aka Inspector Spacetime)
- Highlighting the Archive Panic nature of the series:Narrator: So if you like TV shows you can kick back and watch on Netflix, then definitely don't start watching Doctor Who, as this completionist's nightmare will send you scrambling to find episodes that the BBC erased decades ago, by hunting down dozens of DVD box sets, animated recreations and audio plays, while you secretly pray that all of it just magically turns up like those episodes from Africa.
- Describing the notoriously Broken Base nature of the fandom:Narrator: But no matter which Doctor is operating the TARDIS, one thing remains constant: he is either the most overrated or underrated Doctor of all time, in either the most overrated or underrated era of the show. Okay, look. Getting Doctor Who fans to agree on who's the best Doctor is like trying to watch every episode of Doctor Who: it's pretty much impossible, so why even try?

- Incredibles 2 (aka Super Smash Bros., Sisters, Moms, and Dads)

I mean, I did it!
