2019 Summer Movie Challenge

Recommended Posts

Update: The Summer has started!

 

Here is a link to our leaderboard

 

———————————

 

Hello gents,

 

The “Summer” movie season is fast approaching. I hope some of us are still willing to play the Summer Movie Challenge again this year. 

 

Slashfilm have a poll on Twitter as to when the Challenge should start this year, as the Avengers movies have caused a bit of controversy (as it’s released in April and is/was the clear consensus no 1). 

 

Personally I think it should start the first weekend in May, as that is what it had more of less been up till last year, and is the date that Box Office Mojo uses. 

 

As someone who spends too much time pouring over the numbers on Mojo, I prefer the seasons to line up. 

 

The end of this week’s podcast has an Afterdark discussing this dilemma. 

 

Regardless, it’s time to start thinking about lists. If they go with Avengers weekend, it’s only a month away.

A reminder that lists need to be done by tomorrow to count towards the Global Leaderboards.

 

The Slashfilm podcast for the Summer Movie Wager is now available, as are their lists at https://thesummermoviewager.com

 

I feel like this is the least sure I've felt about my list.

I'm in, but not very confident...we'll see how this goes...

 

It’s a bit of an odd year. There are quite a few movies that could do really well, or really poorly. Deciding what went on the last few spots on the list, and what went into Dark Horse seems like an even bigger crap shoot than usual. 

 

It will also be interesting to see if audiences turn out for Lion King AND Aladdin, AND Toy Story, AND Secret Life of Pets (AND Pikachu?) or if one of those do way less than expected.

jubjub, did you make a new list? I only see the one without Spiderman

 

I didn't. I figured that with my typical abysmal choices (last year was some sort of anomaly) that one movie isn't going to make or break me.

 

And who knows, maybe Spiderman will bomb and I'll look like a genius...LOL!!

Dang, I procrastinated and missed the deadline.  Oh well, the software they use gives me a headache, anyhow.  :)

You can still make a list. It won’t put you on the Global leaderboard, but we’ll let you into ours. I don’t think seeing the first day of Avengers BO is going to change anything.

Okay, I'll try and get one together today.

Edit: Updated Link with AngelP’s updated list. 

 

Whooter should appear on this list once he submits one, assuming he keeps the WhooterMav username.

 

This also has AverageJoe on it again, to compare against the most popular picks overall.

Looks like you’re not the only one who forgot about Spidey.

If that’s the case, can I resubmit my list to include Far From Home?  If not, no big deal.
