(One point per category)
|Clearest Title||This is the same title as a novel.
||This is the same title as a 1984 movie.
||This title is based on a series of children's books.||I haven't heard of any of the originals, so each will get 1/3 point for lack of clarity.
Rated PG for emotional thematic content throughout, and some scary action sequences and peril
Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense war violence and action, and for language.
Rated PG for thematic elements and some mildly scary action.
|Three different genres, so another 1/3 point all around.|
(out of 5 stars)
0/5 - Shame
|"This Thanksgiving, The Fight Begins at Dawn"
3/5 - Very clear. I approve.
|"Naughty, Nice. You better believe."
2/5 - I get the Santa reference, but I don't get this tagline.
|This Thanksgiving, only one tagline makes sense. Point for Red Dawn.|
|Best Part of Trailer||Trailer looked like an epic adventure, with great visual effects.||Trailer had teenagers that had to fight and save the USA.||Santa Claus, The Tooth Fairy, and The Easter Bunny fight together to save the world.||The Pi trailer wins hands down. Point. (Check out conclusions for bonus points)|
|Coolest Lead Actor||This is lead actor Suraj Sharma's first film. ||Chris Hemsworth from The Avengers, Thor, and Snow White and the Huntsman.||The voice of Chris Pine from Star Trek and Unstoppable.||Suraj may be the best actor, but I'll give Chris Hemsworth the cool points for now. |
|Best Cast||Irrfan Khan (Slumdog Millionaire)||Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) and Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Watchmen)||And the voices of Alec Baldwin, Jude Law, Isla Fisher, and Hugh Jackman.||Actors from The Hunger Games automatically get points in this column. |

|Director Ang Lee has also directed Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Hulk, and Brokeback Mountain.||One of the writers, Carl Ellsworth, also wrote Red Eye, Disturbia, and The Last House on the Left.||Writer David Lindsay-Abaire also wrote Robots and Inkheart.||Ang Lee has the best street cred. Point for him. |
