Honest Trailers tackles 'The Force Awakens," awakens the snark

A spoiler-filled Honest Trailers video looks at "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and calls it out as essentially just a remake of "A New Hope."

When you want a snarky breakdown of a movie, you turn to Honest Trailers, a YouTube channel featuring a narrator with a classic movie-trailer voice-over tone ripping into films in the most entertaining way possible. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" may have been a critical and commercial success, but it doesn't escape from a simultaneously biting and loving Honest Trailers recap.

Honest Trailers covers the massive challenges faced by "The Force Awakens," describing it as "the movie that had to satisfy decades of pent-up nerd expectations" while also making up for the much-criticized prequel films and bringing a whole new young audience into the Star Wars universe.

Kylo Ren gets called out for acting "like a goth kid who can't find his eyeliner." Mainly, the trailer points out some massive parallels between the very first Star Wars movie and the latest Star Wars movie. It's all in good fun and it may make you think a little differently about the hit movie.
