How does a topic with only 2 posts before mine, and started by someone with only 3 posts total, become "featured content?"

I would comment on the actual clip, but I can't watch it where I am right now (no sound).

See 2nd post. Featured content is triggered from Oink posts. Is what I heard...

This Honest Trailer dude pretty much nailed The Avengers... it isn't as good as the nerds, with their rose colored denial glasses firmly in place, thought it was.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

I didn't need this spoof trailer to confirm this, but my "roll my eyes o'meter" was off the charts when I sat through this one. How this movie did so well is beyond me confused.gif

Woo Hoo

I'm getting really tired of those idiots who think they're smarter than everyone else on Earth because they supposedly "get it", "if the masses like it then it sucks". It was not funny, maybe it could have been had it been made by someone half smarter than this clown. Almost as funny as some of the posts in the blu-ray software forum actually.

In order to make his "joke" he conveniently ignores the ending of "The Incredible Hulk". It was made perfectly clear at the end of that movie–to anyone paying a modicum of attention–that Banner was in fact gaining control of his changes. That alone invalidates this "honest" trailer.

Not to mention Captain America... His Red Skull reference doesn't make sense, as everyone who has seen the film perfectly knows who he is, not just "every nerd in the audience" pretending to know him... This guy doesn't know what he's talking about but he must feel very important cause he made his little video, and managed to post it on youtube, he's famous! rolleyes.gif

Considering the Avengers is the 3rd highest-grossing movie of all time and was running at 93% fresh on RottenTomatoes.com, the world must be composed almost entirely of "nerds" according to the trailer. Having said that, you could nitpick almost any movie. I thought the honest trailer was funny...don't take it too seriously.

That's actually Thanos...I guess that means you're not a nerd...or maybe you're a nerd because you didn't know...IDK, I'm confused now cool.gif
FWIW, the Red Skull isn't in the same league as Thanos. In one storyline, Thanos basically became God.

wow, for a person who tend to laugh at anything, I can say that the trailer is not making me smile at all, let alone laugh.

I thought it was pretty funny. I was never a comic book person although the movie is one of the few comic book movies I might watch again. That fact the some people are upset at this guy is kinda disturbing considering the grand scheme of things.

Well since I'm among those who didn't laugh, it's not that I'm upset, I just thought it was lame.

If liking avengers makes me a nerd, then I'm happy to be one.

they do realize the movie is a based on a COMIC BOOK.

Check out your brain at the door and enjoy the ride.
It really is the anti-Dark Knight movie and I love both movies for what they are.
