Congrats to RossWB, a multi-time prize winner who had never before taken first place - until now!

I'll work on PMing people about the prizes over the long weekend.

I am assuming you want me to ship directly to people as opposed to mailing to you to mail out again

Yes.  Saves time, and I think it would tend to work out cheaper for you since I'm in Canada.

You'll notice that 4th through 7th place all have 76 points, but of course, only 4th through 6th place will get prizes.

The only real possible change at this point is that Jason Bourne may pull ahead of Star Trek Beyond on the box office list - and that looks like it's going to be really close.  If that does happen, EVA will jump to 4th and Rippa, ivpvideos and Natural will each drop down one spot, leaving Natural in 7th.

I'm getting humour in Jason Bourne and Sucide Squad as the films messing me up. Before I dropped this was my best showing.

Ooof - I feel like that would be the 2nd time Natural would get boned like that.

If that happens - I feel like we should allow the 7th place person a prize (especially since we have extra)

Third time. I was one place below the prizes in 2008 and once before the tiebreaker for time was introduced. Kind for you to suggest that.

Cheers.

Thanks as ever to S.K.o.S. for running this and congratulations to the winners!

Thanks as always for running this. It makes me pay attention to all the Summer movies and is a lot of fun. Appreciate it and Suicide Squad rotten tomatoes can suck it.

Hot damn!  First at last!  I gotta say, I did NOT see that coming at all when I made my picks at the start of the contest. This was probably the LEAST confident I've been in my picks since we started doing this contest... but hey, I'll take it. 

As always, thanks for doing this SKoS -- it's a lot of fun and a great way to liven up summer movie season.  Thanks!

Had fun running it as well.  I need to say thanks too, to all the participants, and especially the people who stepped up to put up movies as prizes.  I did manage to get a job recently (started work in late August) so I should be able to fund things next year.

Dude, you do enough as it is and we are all very appreciative of that. 

I say we incorporate the new tradition of crowdsourcing the prizes next year so that SKoS doesn't have to do everything himself.

Speaking of which - finally got to post office today so the prizes for Ross and Paco are on the way

Post office claims they will arrive on Saturday. I will believe it when I see it.

Got my DVD/Blu Rays in the mail -- thanks! (And another thanks to SKoS for his efforts in running this contest every year!)

Is it just me, or do the number one on box office and rt tend to be the same most years? The idea that maybe quality does sell is strange for summer blockbusters.

When I think about it that doesn't seem totally surprising to me. For all the attempts to make social media a corporate tool, it's made word of mouth more powerful than ever. If a film is good, or bad, you'd better believe people are going to hear about it, fast.

It actually looks like it only happens about half the time.

2016: Finding Dory #1 on both lists
2015: Jurassic World #1 on box office (#9 on RT), Inside Out #1 on RT (#4 on box office)
2014: Guardians of the Galaxy #1 on box office (#2 on RT), How To Train Your Dragon 2 #1 on RT (#10 on box office)
2013: Iron Man 3 #1 on box office (#4 on RT), Star Trek Into Darkness #1 on RT (#6 on box office)
2012: Avengers #1 on both lists
2011: Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows #1 on both lists
2010: Toy Story 3 #1 on both lists
2009: I don't have the spreadsheet, but Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen would've been #1 on the box office list and was definitely not #1 on RT

4 times both, plus one where #2 rt topped box office. That's pretty good.
