It's quite spot on. All the "references" just remind me I could be watching a good movie instead. It's like seeing an ad for Boys Don't Cry during a TV airing of Avatar.

It was okay. Honest Trailers have done better examples of that formula before; this one could have been both funnier and shorter. It was also posted in this forum by TrekToday more than nine months ago, so you're running a little behind.

Exactly. It's not like it's a hate video made by Devin Faraci. Loosen up, folks, it's all for fun.

Reminds me of how fans of THE MATRIX got so upset over this video thinking it was attacking the movie: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGR4OMpMTQU Despite the fact that the info says it's the narrator's favorite film of all time. Does anyone have a favorite film of theirs that they can enjoy AND poke fun at?

I don't hate the parody. I even find much of it amusing. I simply cannot take the idea that it's better than the actual movie with any degree of seriousness.

Yeah, the "it's better than the actual movie..." statements are just so far off the mark, and seem more spiteful than honest. Still, the trailer parody was fun, like they usually are.

I said it was better because to me, the parody was more enjoyable. Subjective opinion, 'k?

I did not mention your name, neither did I implicitly refer to you specifically. It just seems that calling a parody movie trailer better than an actual film, especially when that film is critically and financially successful, just seems more spiteful than honest. You may feel differently, that's fine.

Yup, by the way, please everyone pay attention to the following key phrases: Star Trek is awesome again (0:29) a new era of actually watchable Star Trek films (2:48)


If I remember well the making-off (you can find it on their channel), they made the trailer for the day of the film release, so I don't think they actually saw STID to do the parody. I'm a huge fan of Honest Trailer, so I can tell there's not really hostility toward NuTrek. It's not like second Star Wars trilogy.

The hell you weren't referring to my post; you quoted part of it word for word.

I don't give any portion of a rodent's anatomy if a movie is "critically and financially successful". If I like it, I like it. If I don't, I don't. I give my honest opinions, and your implying otherwise is uncalled for.

Hey, I'm the one with the sense of humor here; I liked the parody. You, on the other hand, appear to think I should laugh because someone called me spiteful and dishonest.

Re: Sorry NuTrek fans...

Easy folks, we're all going to have opinions.
I have a split opinion on it, and that's all. When I first watched the "Honest Trailer" a few months ago, I got a bit of a laugh out of it, but I also didn't exactly get the sense it was an affectionate parody....thus my remark about it seeming angry "fanboyish". If it was indeed an "affectionate parody" then my remark is off the mark.

But let's remember, folks, opinions are only that...opinions. They are not facts. (Only angry fanboys/girls delude themselves that their own opinions are matters of seemingly immutable fact.)
