(in haiku form)
|Guy turns 21|
Has craziest night ever
Super, super drunk
|Jack and the Beanstalk|
Lots of giants and fighting
And a love story
|Girl needs exorcism|
They strap her down to do it
Then strange things happen
|Crew on submarine|
May cause World War 3 with bomb
Should they press button?
|The crazy giants and World War 3 will split the point for an epic plot. |
|Best Trailer||- I smiled once in the trailer but didn’t laugh|
- The plot wasn’t original
- I am not in the demographic to watch this movie
|+ Makes the original Jack and the Beanstalk story boring|
+ Lots of fun action
+ I’m curious about how the humans can possibly defeat so many giants
|+ Trailer was good because they only used foreshadowing|
- But it’s still an exorcism movie
- I am not the demographic to watch this movie
|- Horrible title. And what is the Phantom?|
+ But they might cause World War 3 (that should have been the title)
- And how can it be inspired by true events?
|Clearly I am in the demographic of people that want to watch fantasy action. Point for Jack. |

||Nicholas Hoult from About a Boy, Warm Bodies, and X-Men: First Class.
||Ashley Bell from The Last Exorcism.

||Ewan McGregor (Moulin Rouge!), Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada)
