UPDATE 16 OF 18 - through August 22

Standings

8 [- 8] The Natural - 56 points (17/39, tiebreak 0.206)

I've won two prizes before and missed out on them a couple of times by one place. Said it before, it's the taking part that counts. I have every year and long before prizes came to be. Thanks for running this yearly tradition, @S.K.o.S.!

I added on the Playmobil Movie points in this update.  These should be the final standings, since it's extremely unlikely that Dora will be able to get ahead of Dark Phoenix in box office.

Lower middle of the pack. I'll take it.

 

Thanks for running this as always S.K.o.S. I have a great time every year even though my performance can rarely be described as 'great' to match.

 

I'm curious: You using Excel to scorekeep? You may have gone into this prior but doing HR has got me really into spreadsheets.

Yes.  Running this for as long as I have has allowed me to take the time to automate some things beyond just the scorekeeping (e.g. have all the movie titles in hidden rows directly above the entry slots so that Excel autocompletes each title when you start typing it in; have a tab that checks for duplicate entries & automatically identifies which 5 movies are omitted from each list).  That's why it's annoying when movies like New Mutants and Playmobil get dropped out of the contest - I have to go through all the lists and manually change a bunch of formulas.

I haven't taken the time to set it up so I can just press one button and all the lists of players and movies automatically sort themselves, but I'd like to get around to that!

PACO wins the 2019 Summer Blockbuster Pool!  Everyone down to SorceressKnight at #6 will get a prize, and Kuetsar gets the last place booby prize.

I will be in the winners' DMs soon!

Well, it took a lot of tries (7 by my count) but this was finally my year (despite your best efforts, Lion King!).

As always, thank you S.K.o.S. for doing this thing that I look forward to every Summer.

I will take my tungsten medal for sixteenth place and wear it with pride.

I think my 17th place finish medal will be made out of material so low on the Periodic Table that it could possibly be radioactive.
