Honest Trailers Tries, Fails to Criticize 'The Empire Strikes Back'


We love Screen Junkies' Honest Trailer series because, well, sometimes they'll do a film anyway despite saying next to nothing negative about it. And so it is with their latest, an attempt to give The Empire Strikes Back the honest trailer treatment that tries and pretty much fails to indict the film in any major way.

Just about the only nits they find to pick involve the inconsistent pronunciation of "Han," the fact that said rogue likes to point a lot when he talks, and... that's about it. Sure, they attempt to justify at least two poor decisions the prequels made by giving them context, but honestly the less said about those atrocious films, the better. 

Like a blind prostitute, you really have to hand it to the folks over at Screen Junkies for even daring to take this film on in the first place. However, there are much worse films they could be giving the Honest Trailer treatment to, so let's hope they move on to that next week.
