It's one of the saddest days of the year; the longest possible time before the next

Summer Movie Contest starts.  With that said, sincere congratulations are in order

for first-time winner Yvonne who blew away the rest of us with an impressive 45

points!  That's a solid score in any year, but when the next highest score is only 28

points, it's especially striking.  

 

Second Place finisher Fran came back strong after a long absence from the Contest

scoring the above mentioned 28 points.  Nice Job!

 

It was once again an extremely close year.  If Open Range had made just $728,000

more, it would have knocked out both Yvonne and Fran and left third place finisher

Deej as the winner.  9th Place finisher Smokey actually could have won if not for a

series of final weekend shifts that were all under $1 million.  It truly is a game of

inches. 

 

Below you will find the FINAL top 20 movies of the summer and all of our picks,

scores, and final rankings. I've included each person's email address in case you

want to get a hold of someone and/or taunt them mercilessly. 

 

If you would like to contact me, you can send an email to tyranny4u@pipeline.com. I

would appreciate any comments or suggestions on how I can improve the site for next

year.

 

If you would like to check out how some previous summer contests went, you

can visit the Summer 2000, Summer 2001, and Summer 2002 web sites.

 

And even though the Summer Movie Contest is over, you can still win prizes

each week by guessing movie grosses at GuessTheGross.com.  It's a cool site

dedicated to all things movies and it's run by a couple of our own players.

SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!
