|Clearest Title||This sounds foreboding.
||This sounds like the typical one-word action film.

Rated PG-13 for drug content and sequences of violence.

|Son wrongly in jail|
The Rock needs to lay smackdown

|I thought this week wouldn’t be original, and then I wrote the word “alien.” Point for Dark Skies. |
|Best Trailer||- Similar elements of other horror films with families|
+ But the last five seconds seemed cool (aliens?)
+ This trailer was fine, most horror trailers are awful.
|+ Looks like a high quality action film|
+ The Rock seems a little more vulnerable in this role
- I’m sure this plot must have been done at least once before
|Snitch’s trailer made me a little more interested in seeing the movie. So point.
|Coolest Lead Actor||Keri Russell from Felicity, Waitress, and Mission Impossible 3.
||Dwayne Johnson from the WWE, The Scorpion King, and Get Smart.
||I respect both of these actors a lot. Seriously. Half point each.
|Best Cast||J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man)
||Susan Sarandon (Thelma & Louise), Melina Kanakaredes (Providence), and Benjamin Bratt (Miss Congeniality)
||Snitch has the more well-known cast. Point.
