Honest-to-god awesome
16 February 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

There's no shortage of parody to be found on YouTube, but I can't think of a more winning concept than "Honest Trailers". It captures the spirit of the classic voiceovers dude from the '80s while skewering all manner of mainstream garbage.

And after so many years, it still hasn't gotten old. For me, Jon Bailey is the secret weapon; he makes for an excellent Epic Voice-over Guy, channeling Don LaFontaine with plenty of room for his own humorous touches. It doesn't matter whether they're taking jabs at some low-hanging fruit like "Armageddon" or a bulletproof classic like "The Empire Strikes Back", it's always funny. And when they're really trashing a movie, it is glorious (*cough* "Suicide Squad" *cough*).

Few YouTube shows are consistently this entertaining.

10/10
