(1 point per category)|
|Clearest Title||This could be a romantic comedy or a quirky indie drama. ||With the exclamation point, this is probably a children's movie.||Perhaps this movie is about Edgar Allen Poe.||A single word for the title? Probably a thriller.||None of these titles are that clear. The Raven is going to win the point, though. |
Rated R for sexual content, and language throughout.
Rated PG for mild action, rude humor, and language.
Rated R for bloody violence and grisly images.
Rated R for strong violence throughout, and language.
|Three R rated movies?! Pirates wins a point for being unique. |
(out of 5 stars)
|"A comedy about the journey between popping the question and tying the knot"
3/5- Two stars for an average tagline, bonus star for the hilarious poster
|"Laugh your booty off"
4/5- HA! It's a pun on the nickname of a body part and on pirate's treasure!
|"The only one who can stop a serial killer is the man who inspired him"
3/5- A little long, but intriguing
|"She has the code. He has the key."
2/5 I don't know what that means.
|Also, "Kick some booty," and "It's a Plunderful Life." HA! Another point for the pirates. |
|Best Part of Trailer||Charming cast. Moments of laughter.
||Maybe kids will like it. ||Spooky. Looks fun. ||The long version trailer is good! (much better than generic 15 second tv spot)||The Five-Year Engagement and The Raven are going to split the point for best trailer. |
|Coolest Lead Actor||Jason Segel from How I Met Your Mother, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and The Muppets. ||The voice of Hugh Grant from Notting Hill and Four Weddings and a Funeral. ||John Cusack from 1408, 2012, and Serendipity. ||Jason Statham from The Transporter and Crank.||I like all four actors. Only one brought me The Muppets. Jason Segel, thank you. (Here's a point)|
|Best Cast||Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada) and smaller roles for Kevin Hart (Think Like a Man), Mindy Kaling (The Office), and Molly Shannon (SNL)||The voices of Jeremy Piven (Entourage), Salma Hayek (Frida), and Al Roker (Today). ||Luke Evans (Immortals) and Brendan Gleeson (Mad-Eye Moody from Harry Potter)||Chris Sarandon (The Princess Bride)||Emily Blunt wins this round. |
|Best Street Cred|
For the Production
|From writer (along with Segel) and director Nicholas Stoller, who also wrote The Muppets and directed Forgetting Sarah Marshall. ||Director Peter Lord also directed Chicken Run. ||Director James McTeigue also directed V for Vendetta. ||Writer and Director Boaz Yakin has also written Prince of Persia and directed Remember the Titans. ||The Muppets. Chicken Run. V for Vendetta. Remember the Titans. Four amazing movies. 1/4th point for each director. |
