Inevitably, all the popular film sagas you love will receive their own Honest Trailer, heartlessly deconstructing the franchise’s various narrative and stylistic lapses.

Also, everybody is white — and when they die, they come back whiter! Anyhow, watch the video below and let the bad vibes simmer.
