WATCH: Honest Trailer For ‘Star Wars’ Is Hilariously Eye-Opening

Screen Junkie’s “Honest Trailers” series typically lays waste to bad movies (and sometimes even good ones) and while their style can be too overcritical at times, they did a pretty good job with Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Of course, this has prompted them to tackle the film that started it all and the results are surprisingly eye-opening.

While the video is filled with Screen Junkie’s typical brand of sardonic humor, their take on Star Wars is filled with reverence for the film while hilariously mocking some of its more questionable moments (mostly anything that George Lucas added in his special editions). At any rate, Screen Junkies succeeds in refraining from completely destroying a sacred cow, so it has that going for it.

Plus, the observations about the similarities between Luke and Anakin Skywalker are worth giving this a view alone.
