|Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules ||Sucker Punch ||WINNER
(1 point per category)
|Clearest Title||Ooh la la, is this a sequel to the last Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie? ||Ooh la la, is this a....I don't know, but it has a cool title. ||Unfortunately the point is for clarity not coolness, so Rodrick will win this point.|
Rated PG for some mild rude humor and mischief.
Rated PG-13 for some thematic material involving sexuality, violence, and combat sequences, and for language
|Every movie has the parental guidelines of Sucker Punch these days, but it's the first time I ever typed "mischief" in this column...point for the Wimpy Kid. |

|Welcome to the Next Grade
Catchy, because it's a sequel to a movie about middle-school.
|You will be Unprepared
I like the declarative and brash statement about myself.
|Dear Diary, I don't know which movie has the better tagline, I guess they'll both split the point. |
|Best Part of Trailer||Let down. I thought the trailer to the first movie was amazing! This one was alright. ||Samurais, robots, dragons, fighting, pretty girls, and perhaps a good plot. ||Sucker Punch gave out a sucker punch this round and got the point. |
|Coolest Lead Actor||Zachary Gordon was the lead actor in the first Wimpy Kid movie. ||Emily Browning was from the Lemony Snicket movie. ||I don't really know either of these actors, but they both seem cool- they'll split the point. |
|Best Cast||Steve Zahn (Sahara and Rescue Dawn) ||Jena Malone (Stepmom), Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), and Jon Hamm (Mad Men) ||Not the best week for famous casts, but Sucker Punch will take the win. |
|Best Street Cred|
For the Production
|Director David Bowers has also directed Astro Boy and Flushed Away. ||Writer and Director Zack Snyder has also written and directed 300. ||Zack Snyder can definitely make a stylish looking movie- wins the point for Best Street Cred. |
