King Leonidas was entry #12, so another prize is added to the prize pool, and it's an (unopened) dvd copy of JESUS CAMP!  That comes to us courtesy of Paco.

I edited the bottom part of my RT list. Hope it's not to late. 

 

Edit to the post about the edit: also swapped Xmen and ID on the BO list

I'm okay with it, especially since you're putting up a prize!

That's right, Lacelle was the 15th entrant, and Kevin Wilson has agreed to spring for a Criterion blu-ray of CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA.

To any future entrants, Captain America: Civil War is off the table at this point, but you can still enter!  You're just picking your 15 movies from a list of 19 rather than 20.

And actually, Kevin Wilson was entry #18, so I gotta go back to the PMs and confirm that final prize...

The sixth prize will be a dvd copy of AVATAR, coming from Vince Greene!

Thanks for the words, Natural and SKos.

It doesn't look like Captain American: Civil War is tracking as high as AVENGERS: ULTRON, but it'll probably have stronger word of mouth.

I think there are going to be some bombs and/or movies doing less than expectations this summer because there are too many big name franchises/sequels and all of them can't make tons of money.

MOAR PRIZES!  My cup runneth over.

ivpvideos is contributing three "best of" wrestling blu-rays:

  • Best of Kana, aka Asuka (matchlist here)
  • Best of Hiroshi Tanahashi V1 (matchlist here)
  • Legacy of Harley Race (matchlist here)

That brings us to nine prizes total.  I'm thinking first through third place will get to pick two each, and fourth through sixth place will get to pick one each.

Fuck, RT for Civil War is already down to 90%. I was smart enough to put Finding Dory above Civil War but X-Men Apocalypse may fuck me up if the reviews are too stellar.

I'm fairly confident that the RT blockbusters I have below my #3 pick should rank no more than 90% Fresh.

That is why I really wanted to get in my entry to count CW, even if I am off one or two I am pretty confident it will be Top 2 in BO and Top 3 in RT. Not a lot of other movies I felt that confident about their spots.

I flipped Dory above CW at the last minute when I saw that Cap was only at 92% before the US reviews since I figured it would drop some thanks to stupid Americans.

Of course - everything else on my list will be shit

I forgot to do this last year.

I'll try and get something done tomorrow or Wednesday in time for this week. I hate I missed doing this prior to Civil War, which has probably claimed the #1 slot on RT if not in Box Office.

Well the nice thing is that CW will have no affect on your list.

The downside is that you didn't get the free gimmie of having CW in the Top 3 of both lists

Angry Birds sounds about right but I need that RT for Neighbors 2 to sink below 50%. 

It needs to be worse than Warcraft which I expect to be somewhat maligned and worse than Central Intelligence which I hope at least gets damned with faint praise because of The Rock, but so far not even Ice Cube or Will Farrell have been able to overcome the Kevin Hart = Co-Star shittyness.

I probably should've put CI second to last on my RT list.

The early reviews for APOCALYPSE are not good -- 27 in, 40% fresh.  

I'm thinking ANGRY BIRDS and APOCALYPSE are way too high on my RT list, unless there are a ton of dogs this summer...

How are there NO reviews for THE NICE GUYS yet even though it comes out in 11 days?  That's a little worrisome.

Although I guess its RT rating doesn't matter for me since I left it off my list and if it IS a bomb, that's good for my box office list... That said, I was really hoping it would be good.

I don't think so. The premiere is tomorrow and it's showing at the Cannes on the 15th.
