|The Bourne Legacy
(1 point per category)
|Clearest Title||Another Bourne movie???
||Not sure about the genre of this movie.
||This movie probably has romance in it.
||The Bourne movie gets the point for having the most recognizable title.
Rated PG-13 for violence and action sequences.
Rated R for crude sexual content, language, and brief nudity.
Rated PG-13 for mature thematic content involving sexuality.
|Each film will get 1/3 of a point for having a slightly different genre and rating.
(out of 5 stars)
|“There Was Never Just One.”
Interesting, but what? No Matt Damon?
|“May the Best Loser Win.”
3/ 5- Funny, cause both are losers in the campaign.
|“Fall in Love Again this August.”
1/5 -While plot related, it does not make me want to watch this movie.
|Not the strongest week, but at least each title had one. The Campaign will win this vote.
|Best Part of Trailer||It looked action packed (although I wasn’t awestruck and there was no Damon).
||A lot funnier than I expected (although I don’t expect much from these types of comedies)
||It wasn’t that bad too watch (okay, I enjoyed it, but that might be because Meryl Streep is a wizard)
||Honestly, all three trailers were equally fine with me. 1/3 points all around. (Life of Pi - now that’s a trailer!)
|Coolest Lead Actor||Jeremy Renner from The Avengers, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, and The Hurt Locker.
||Will Ferrell from Anchorman, SNL, and Elf.
||Meryl Streep from The Devil Wears Prada, The Iron Lady, and Mamma Mia!
||Jeremy Renner is pretty hot right now (I mean that in the heterosexual popularity way), so he’ll split the point with the famous Streep.
|Best Cast||Edward Norton (Fight Club) and Rachel Weisz (The Mummy)
||Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover), Jason Sudeikis (SNL), and Dylan McDermott, John Lithgow, and Dan Aykroyd.
||Tommy Lee Jones (Men in Black), Steve Carell (The Office), and Jean Smart.
||While not a landslide victory, The Campaign will win this round.
|Best Street Cred|
For the Production
|Writer and Director Tony Gilroy also wrote the other Bourne movies and directed Michael Clayton.
||Director Jay Roach has also directed the Austin Powers and the Meet the Parents’ movies.
||Director David Frankel has also directed The Devil Wears Prada and Marley & Me.
||Oh shoot. The director of Austin Powers or the writer of the Bourne movies? I’ll let those two guys split the point.
