2018 Summer Blockbuster Movie Pool


Recommended Posts

I credit my late-game resurgence to leaving basically all of the August releases off my ballot.  I had no feel for any of those movies, either critically or commercially (and apparently neither did many of you!) so rather than take a chance, I made like Bad Luck Fale and said fuck ‘em.

Taken part every year of the Summer Blockbuster Pool, 2008-2018!

Think this was my worst performance. No matter, it's fun to take part in and see if films meet expectations or don't deliver. Touch wood I'll be around for the 2019 version.

Thanks to @S.K.o.S. for running this and those who come up with prizes.

No changes from last update, and GATLING is the 2018 Summer Blockbuster Pool winner!  Everyone down to The Z at 6th place will get a prize, plus SorceressKnight collects the last place booby prize.

If you're receiving a prize, I'll be in your PMs shortly asking for your dvd picks and your mailing info.

*sigh*
After 3 straight years of prizes, my last minute downfall came at the hands of an overperforming shark movie and 🤬 PUPPETS!

As always, Thank You S.K.o.S...
I'll keep coming back every Summer as long as you keep doing 'em.

I've followed this for the last few years and finally decided to try it out.  I'm sure it will all be downhill from here, but it was alot of fun and I'll definitely participate again next year.  Thanks for running this S.K.o.S.!

Did everyone else get theirs yet? Because it's been a week since Gatling's post for me and no sign of it.

I haven't mailed mine out yet since payday is so far away. I will send you and elsa a PM when they go out (they will be coming directly from Amazon again)

So I'm assuming we might get that PM sometime before next year's contest starts.
