|My favorite week is when there are four different genres! 1/4 point each.|
(in haiku form)
|Girl will turn 16|
She likes boy. She is a witch
Is she good or bad?
|There are aliens|
Humans captured them on Earth
They need to escape!
|A Die Hard movie|
John McClane teams up with son
Russians are bad guys
|Girl moves to new town|
Based on Nicholas Sparks book
Love but there’s secrets.
|Escape from Planet Earth has the best plot, hands down. Tentacles down. Point.|
|Best Trailer||+ Beautiful set and costumes|
+ There’s witches and magic
- But it reminds me of the Twilight movies
|+ The premise of this movie is exceptional|
+ There’s a couple of clever moments too
- I didn’t laugh that much though
|+ A Die Hard movie with cool effects|
- Horrible dialogue
- That was the worst edited trailer I have ever seen
|+ Romance movie for Valentine’s Day|
- Generic Will-a-secret-tear-apart-true-love plot
+ But taking your date to this movie will help your cause
|No trailer grabbed my heart. I’ll give each movie 1/4 point.|
|Coolest Lead Actor||
Viola Davis from The Help and Doubt.
The voice of Brendan Frasier from The Mummy and George of the Jungle.
||Bruce Willis from The Sixth Sense, Die Hard, and Pulp Fiction. ||
Josh Duhamel from Transformers and Life As We Know It.
Bruce Willis may not win this round too many years longer, but he’ll get the point this week.
Emmy Rossum (Phantom of the Opera) and Emma Thompson (Love Actually)
The voices of Ricky Gervais, Jessica Alba, Sofia Vergara, and many more.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Final Destination 3)
Julianne Hough (Dancing with the Stars)
This is a close call, but I believe Beautiful Creatures will get the point.
