|Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days ||Total Recall ||WINNER|
(1 point per category)
|Clearest Title||The third Wimpy Kid movie? Those books are so cute. ||Is this an update of a Schwarzenegger movie? ||Both movies have recognizable titles. Both movies will earn 1/2 a point.
Rated PG for some rude humor.
Rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence and action, some sexual content, brief nudity, and language.
|Perfect week- two different ratings, two different genres. Half point each.
(out of 5 stars)
That’s a shame.
|What is real?
1/5 Every tagline sounds like this.
|Total Recall just barely wins the point this round.
|Best Part of Trailer||I have no problem admitting I have liked all of the Wimpy Kid trailers. ||Admittedly, I never saw the original, but this looks action-packed with a great plot. ||Not only does Total Recall get the point, it also wins the award for a trailer that best turned my low expectations into high expectations. |
|Coolest Lead Actor||Zachary Gordon plays the lead charater in the Wimpy Kid movies. ||Colin Farrell from Miami Vice, Daredevil, and Phone Booth. ||I’m actually going to let the guys split the point. I think Zachary is just as cool as Colin.
|Best Cast||Steve Zahn (Sahara) and all the popular characters from the books. ||Kate Beckinsale (Underworld), Jessica Biel (7th Heaven), and Bill Nighy (Love Actually) ||Total Recall does have the more impressive cast. Point.
|Best Street Cred|
For the Production
|Director David Bowers also directed Flushed Away and Astro Boy. ||Director Len Wiseman has also directed Underworld and Live Free or Die Hard. ||Wiseman is developing some great street cred. He’ll win the point this week. |
