It's July 5th, But Did You Celebrate the Fourth Correctly?

This trailer will explain why you should have watched this movie instead of whatever unpatriotic thing you did, you awful American.

Now, time to redeem yourself and your honor in the sight of your country and your species.

I recall the mid to late 90s having a lot of awesome movies. Don't think it was just nostalgia. Pretty sure. I know Independence Day rocked.

Jessica and I watched this trailer and then pretty much all of the honest trailers within 24 hours, even though we were in Vermont for my MFA program and the B & B we were at had craptacular wifi. They actually made us stop watching HG TV (we don't have cable at home) and whatever homework we were trying to do at the time. :p

That was the best decade in cinematic history!
Haha! I'm sorry I did that to y'all. Those things are addictive, but they are also energizing. I mean, if I watch five trailers, that's power to solve five math problems, right? Just gonna keep telling myself that. Also, they are probably less scripted than whatever was on HGTV! Zing!!!

Also, can I say that the cast call at the end of each trailer is my favorite part? Starring...Leonardo Da Vinci...
Also, Jurassic Park--"And re-witness...The Goldblum!"

Some of the cast calls are confusing (why is vampire from Twilight always shovel face? I guess his face looks... kind of shovel-ish), but they can be hilarious. Though I don't like how they ripped on Karen Allen in the Indiana Jones 4 one. :( Sure, she hasn't aged as well as Harrison Ford, but... I think 1% of the population can hope to do that. And I liked that she came back, she was the best of all the women in the original three (I almost said "practiced archaeology with," but that was way more double entendre-ish than I was willing to go. But of course, now I just did it anyway).

As for HGTV, it's addictive for us. I just wish they didn't have marathons of the same show for three hours straight... the scripted/recipe nature of the show is abundantly clear when you see them back to back and therefore less fun. :(

I agree. When Karen's Allen's age Honest Trailer guy reaches, look as good, he will not. Then again, Shia Lebeouf's casting call from that trailer is my favorite moment of all the trailers.
