I actually enjoyed both of their entries better than NXTManiac's or JK's (No offence to either of them). They may have had weaker stories, but the screenplay was well written IMO.
Okay, I know people say 'story is everything', all the time, but that's untrue. Execution is key. Even you have a good story, if it's executed badly it doesn't matter. This isn't necessarily regarding Stan's film down, but JK's had a good story, a very good interpretation, and had good execution, thus making it a very well laid out film. Also, I don't believe either film had a great screenplay (TwickABrick's or Stan's). TwickABrick's was good, and the dialog was clever, but it failed on it's originality. Stan's one was basically about a guy who misunderstood things. If anything the voice acting was very good. I don't mean any offense in my post, please, it's just I feel like there are other films that deserve more praise (i.e Maze, Steve - TMS, Circle, etc).
Well, I want to say something here. Onion, you may have your point, but you can't decide what he likes or not: it looks like you want him to like what you do...at least that's what I felt when reading your comment. What I mean is, if he likes them, fine: you can't tell him JK is better than Stan. Or viceversa. JP here is just saying he enjoyed it better. And execution not always is the key: as you said in your post even if execution is good, it's better to have a good story. And the way you told Stan's entry could be used with everyone's entry, starting from mine, but I'm not going to do an example with it since my example involves the twist. Let's take your entry: it's about a guy who gets a job offer as a spy (no spoiler, it's the beginning); or JK: "Oh, it's just about a guy who got murdered" (it's no spoiler, it's in the title). And I can go on. It may be that his entry it's just about a guy who misunderstands things, but that's not enough to say JK is better than Stan, not in this case at least: tastes are tastes. There's no real way to say this is more worthy than this one. Well, that's all I got to say, I hope it was clear.
(btw, about the entries I took as example, I loved them, it's just to let you see that it could be done with anything)
