Summer Movie Wager

Postby Tyler » Sun May 27, 2012 2:14 pm

One of my favorite podcast did this, so I thought we should give it a try.

I know its a little late, since the summer movie season already started, but let's have a contest of who can correctly guess the top 10 grossing movies of the summer.

Proposed scoring, help me think of a good scoring method.
10 pts for guessing the correct #1 movie.
5 pts for guessing a movie in its correct spot.
-1 pt for every wrong position.
ex. I guess a movie to be in #4 and it is in #7, I will then be awarded 2 pts
1 additional point for every movie of yours that made it on the list, regardless of order

Contest will end the end of August.
Movies that started May 1st or later are eligible.

LIST OF COMPETITORS!

Is this the opening weekend only? That would be the most fair as later summer movies would be getting the shaft.

You should take that into consideration when making your list.

Dumb! Please change my list to the order in which all movies in my top 10 come out in theaters. (/sarcasm)

Here it is. A lot of the same, but some major differences in there as well.

I'm voting Wagner for last place with Expendables 2 and Seeking a Friend on there and Prometheus so high

I think Prometheus is going to do well dude. But yeah I would probably change a few things. Oh well.

I'm hoping Seeking a Friend for the End of the World is a good sleeper pick since no one else has it.
