Recommended Posts

Many kudos sot SKoS for perpetuating this institution and congrats to the Top 6!

Man, this is the closest I've ever come to the prizes.  Next year for sure!

Pleasantly surprised to find my highest placement and I've won a prize. I thought The Dark Tower may have screwed me.

Thanks SKoS for this annual tradition here.

Thanks as always to S.K.oS. for organizing this -- it's always a lot of fun! 

I'm surprised (but pleased) that I managed to finish in the Top 6 this year -- albeit by the skin of my teeth...!  Wow, that was close.

Took me a while to get around to it, but I've now ordered all the prizes that I was responsible for (everything other than Train to Busan, His Girl Friday and Xanadu) through Amazon, and the winners should be getting those discs before the end of September.

Funnily enough - I just remembered today too that I had to send the prizes. So I will let folks know when they go out.

I just shipped out the three prizes I was responsible for directly from Amazon

I have Prime so they should be delivered on Sunday (Monday I guess if your place doesn't have Sunday delivery)

So @Elsalvajeloco @SorceressKnight @RossWB be on the look out from something from Amazon

I cannot wait to see what the Xanadu prize will be next year.

That name will stick for all eternity.

When SKOS and I first where talking - I said I was going to do Leonard Part 6

I pretty sure my aversion to putting more money in Bill Cosby's pocket was the reason that stopped me

I think there needs to be a poll to pick out the Xanadu prize in addition to the usual Who Is Worthy? poll we do before the pool starts up.

I think I still have a shrink wrapped copy of Superman IV: The Quest For Peace somewhere in my DVD stash for that very occasion.. 

I may have donated it to Goodwill, though.  Irony.  Making someone else experience that shit is not goodwill.

Yeah, I think that whole 15 cent residual check will probably hit his account sometime in 2035.

Don't Question My Logic!

And with what was available on Amazon at the time of my choosing...

For the Xanadu prize there, if RIPPA was doing this, I was kicking around the thought but will put it out now:

 

As part of the Xanadu prize, the last-place finisher the year before has to buy the next year's last place finisher prize (not sure if they're bottom-one protected or not.)

 

So, consider this my offer to do so for next year.

The loser must also review the movie in next year's pool thread as proof that they watched it.

Spoken as if the Breen wasn't my pick for what I'd be sending out if I do send the prize out.

(As far as watching, I have received "Xanadu", and I'm just waiting for the right time to spring it on some friends for bad movie night to get some benefits and more people punished for it.)
