The Honest Trailers crew comes up with side-splitting burns for pretty much every movie that hits the big screen. Some of the movies really deserve the slams (looking at you Suicide Squad) while others, like Deadpool, were pretty good films that get even better with a little roasting.

Well, it causes a little bit of an existential crisis. 

“Let’s see, what to nitpick here,” says the video voiceover. “Sometimes they pronounce Han Solo’s name different? Ha ha! You suck perfect movie.”

Honest Trailers manages to get some zings in there, but let’s be real: The Empire Strikes Back is pretty much flawless, and we all know it.
