New Honest Trailer for “The Princess Bride”

The Honest Trailer series pokes fun at movies, and their latest target is The Princess Bride. The 1987 “romantic fantasy adventure comedy film” seems perfectly ripe for the sarcastic treatment.

Everybody loves The Princess Bride, although as the Honest Trailer notes, most probably never saw it in the movie theater. The film, which was directed by Rob Reiner, has become a classic of repeated viewings on VHS, DVD, cable, and through the Internet. I cannot even count how many times I have seen it.

So, sit back and enjoy a little fun being poked at The Princess Bride.

    Billy on the Street Thanksgiving Parade

    Billy Eichner of the truTV show Billy on the Street recently hosted his first-ever Thanksgiving Day parade. And what would be a Thanksgiving day parade without giant balloons, floats, and Katie Couric?

    The segment does a nice job of parodying the cultural icons often selected for such parades. And every parade needs a giant Sean Penn balloon. Check out the funny video.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Batman vs. Superman, Old School

    Cinemash recently re-imagined the upcoming Batman versus Superman movie as being made with an old-school Superman (Christopher Reeve) and Batman (Adam West). While like everyone else I am eagerly anticipating Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) with Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, it would be pretty cool to see the full movie version of this trailer too.

    It is also interesting to contemplate how dark our superhero movies have become in the recent decade and why. Seeing this trailer really highlights the differences from an earlier time. Check out the trailer for Batman v Superman (Retro Version).

    If you like spoilers, for a recently revealed synopsis of the real Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, head over to Collider.
