Honest Trailer for Skyfall Makes a Ton of Good Points

I'm willing to admit that there's definitely some strange stuff going on in the latest James Bond film, Skyfall. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that there are a goodly number of oddities. The movie was still grand to watch, if only because Judi Dench is phenomenal. Still, Screen Junkies' latest Honest Trailer for the film is definitely firing on all cylinders and makes a bunch of fair points about Skyfall's overwhelming reliance on convenient plot developments.

By Steotch. I love geeky cross stitch/embroidery.

Judi Dench’s Filthy Mouth and Other Silly Complaints About Movies by British People

Audience Participation

While we wouldn't be surprised to see similar, or even weirder complaints from our fellow Yanks here in the U.S. of A., a new collection of complaints by British filmgoers is just adorably prudish and random. Compiled by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), which deals directly with costumer complaints concerning movie certificate ratings, a list of the silliest gripes received by the association includes problems with what people look like, what things look like, the words people say, and the price of popcorn. Which, no, Virginia, has nothing to do with rating certificates. So, come with us after the jump to read more about how many British people have a problem every time Dame Judi Dench uses a naughty word!

Pirates of the Caribbean 4: You Seem Familiar? Have I Watched You Before?


"You seem familiar. Have I threatened you before?" It's a question Captain Jack Sparrow likes to pose, and it's one that might give you pause, or just a wicked sense of déjà vu. A disturbing sense that we've been threatened before is exactly what you can expect from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, a dour, bloated whale of a summer movie. For two-and-a-half hours, you can follow along the worn dreadlocked wig of Captain Jack Sparrow as he searches, with about 300 supporters, for the Fountain of Youth. I was wishing for the fabled Fountain about twenty minutes in, because if it's one thing that the fourth episode of Pirates made me feel, it was old. Grabbing a cutlass and slashing to the quick; POTC 4 is an over-long, overcrowded, boring ride, if your definition of a ride is a rattling wooden crate on some very rickety track.
