Affectionate parodyception, my nose is bleeding. I think their most fanboyish trailer was for Robocop. Sometime, they like what they parody, ex: Home Alone, and sometime they hate it (recent M Night Shamalayan stuff), but when they do, they're pretty explicit about. Honest Trailers are caricatures.

Try to make an "affectionate parody" of your girlfriend's flaws, and you'll realize that such a thing does not exist.

So a movie is on par with a girlfriend?

Funny, but OTOH:

"Kirk fails to protect his crew... and the Enterprise... and downtown San Francisco"

That clip is true to the movie, and that's a problem IMHO with movies nowadays. Nobody matters as long as they kill the bad guy (ok, they didn't kill Khan, but that was just becasue they wanted his BLOOD! How taking BLOOD by force can be a good guys thing?).

In the previous movie, Kirk ordered to open fire against a enemy already defeated and in his knees (figuratively, it was a black hole).

Other moveis are examples of this trend. I was unconfortable during Transformers 2 seeing childhood hero Optimus Prime executed a defeated enemy with a shot in the face.

Enemies during the 80's, for example Indiana Jones', always died by their own evil actions. This is different.

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.
The hell you weren't referring to my post; you quoted part of it word for word.
Your post was an excellent example of what I was talking about, but I wasn't targeting you specifically. There is a difference.

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.
That's fine, I'm not saying you can't.

Well, I liked the clip. I loved XI and barely tolerated XII in hindsight, but I liked the clip. There's no need to "apologize" to nuTrek fans.

Seriously, the vast majority of movies out there, no matter how critically acclaimed and tightly made they are, often fall victim to jokes, and that's fine by me. My favorite is the summary of Wizard of Oz: "A little girl kills in a new land and then teams up with three other men to kill again." It's not wrong factually

That movie is on par with an extremely ugly, stupid and messy one. And probably psychotic.

I sincerely hope you treat your girlfriend differently than you do films or Star Trek.

Of course. I don't see my gf everyday, for example.

Also, Star Trek came first.

As we say in French, qui aime bien châtie bien (the equivalent seems to be spare the rod and spoil the child), but of course, if by flaws, you're talking about her body or her similarities to her own mother, you're better to like sleeping on the couch.

Usually, the roasters have a better relationship whith the roasted than Takei with Shatner.

Well, the movie footage in the stupid "Honest Trailer" thing did make me want to watch STID again.

Both reveal truths about the movie.

Ooo, hadn't seen that one a few dozen times before, either.

ProTip: check the date on the formula checklist YouTube satire clip before posting it as containing new "revealed truths".

I never said "new" (if you were speaking to me)
