Most out there have witnessed the critical tirade that is Honest Trailers. Brought to the world byScreen Junkies, this amusing series of YouTube videos takes the movies that we all know and love (and sometimes hate with a passion) and tear them into little pieces for all the stupid crap that the writers, producers and directors decided would make good cinema. And it appears as if the Screen Junkies crew has now achieved a milestone, what with this, their 200th episode. The parody series takes an honest look back at Hugh Jackman in FOX’s 2017 third and final solo Wolverine film, Logan. Oh, and they seek the help of Ryan Reynolds Deadpool to do it.
The Screen Junkies had a hell of a time trying to tear Logan down, as can be evidenced by the Honest Trailer they ended up with. When the narrator gets stuck with more things to say, he calls up Deadpool (guest star Ryan Reynolds) and attempts to bait him into mocking the movie but even that fails.
“If Jackman doesn’t get an Oscar nom, I’m setting every VHS copy of Crash on fire,” says Deadpool, a reference to Crash‘s controversial best picture win in 2006.
He goes on to campaign for director James Mangold to helm an Old Man Deadpool movie in 20 years.
“Oh, man, how good would that be? Just 90 minutes of Cable and I changing each others space diapers,” says Deadpool.
But Honest Trailers does try its best to mock Logan for his battle with old age, taking aim at his failing eyesight, bloody coughing fits, as well as the weird reason mutants were wiped out.
