|Larry Crowne ||Monte Carlo ||Transformers: Dark of the Moon ||WINNER
(1 point per category)
|Clearest Title||Never heard of this guy. ||Have heard of this place. ||The third Transformers movie! ||Easy enough- Transformers wins the point for best title. |
Rated PG-13 for brief strong language and some sexual content.
Rated PG for brief mild language.
Rated PG-13 for intense prolonged sequences of sci-fi action violence, mayhem and destruction, language, some sexuality, and innuendo.
|Another no-brainer round, Action always trumps dramedies and romantic comedies. Another point for Transformers. |
(out of 5 stars)
This movie doesn't need a tagline to get people to see it, because it stars Hanks and Roberts.
|"She's having the time of someone else's life."
Kind of clever and intriguing.
This movie also doesn't need a tagline. The title says if you liked the first two films, you'll like this one.
|Even easier than the first two rounds, Monte Carlo wins the point for this category. |
|Best Part of Trailer||The charm of Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts could literally intoxicate someone. ||If you liked The Princess Diaries, you'll love this film. ||If you like excessive and prolonged sequences of mayhem and destruction, you'll love this film. ||I'm starting to experience a Hanks/Robert hangover right now. That trailer wins hands down. |
|Coolest Lead Actor||Tom Hanks for Forrest Gump, Saving Private Ryan, and The Da Vinci Code. ||Selena Gomez from Wizards of Waverly Place. ||Shia LaBeouf from Disturbia, Eagle Eye, and Holes. ||The fifth easy point in a row. Tom Hanks takes it all. |
|Best Cast||Julia Roberts (Pretty Woman) and Wilmer Valderamma (That 70s Show), and George Takei (Star Trek)
||Katie Cassidy (Click), Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl), Cory Monteith (Glee). ||Josh Duhamel (Life as We Know It), John Malkovich (Con Air), and Patrick Dempsey (Grey's Anatomy). ||This round is unfair as Julia Roberts is also a lead actor, but she'll give her film another quick point. |
|Best Street Cred|
For the Production
|Director Tom Hanks ?!?! and writers Tom Hanks and Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding). ||Director and writer Thomas Bezucha also wrote and directed The Family Stone. ||Director Michael Bay has also directed Bad Boys, The Rock, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor, and the other Transformers. ||The first tough round because Michael Bay definitely has street cred for explosions, but I have to give the point to Hanks and Vardalos, who is also so charming! |
