Welcome to the all new, all different (well, actually itís pretty much the same) Summer Movie Contest

for 2005!  Great new look; same great taste!

 

The Contest has finally come to a close for this year and the winner couldn't be a nicer guy; Me!  After

a 5 year drought, I've finally managed to come out on top with 31 points.  However, I only won by 1 point just

narrowly edging past the always dangerous Mike C.  Last year's 2nd Place finisher, Corey, showed some consistency

by coming in third this year with 27 points. If Charlie and the Chocolate Factory had made just $2 million more

he would have won easily.  Contest founder and last year's winner Smokey found himself in a four-way tie for

4th with Yvonne, Sean, and Roy who all had 22 points. 

 

This was the lowest scoring win in a number of years indicating that it was a difficult summer or a lousy bunch of picks. 

I prefer to believe in the difficult summer, so good job to all!

 

Below you will find the FINAL summer of 2005 top 20 and below that you will find all of our picks with final points

and rankings.  Iíve also included email addresses so that we can give each other encouragement (or more likely taunt each

other for particularly embarrassing picks).

 

 If you would like to contact me, you can send an email to radiohead@earthlink.net

I would appreciate any suggestions on how to improve the site.

 

If you want to check out how some other contests went, you can go to the Summer 2000, Summer 2001,

Summer 2002, Summer 2003 and/or Summer 2004 web sites.

 

Finally, if you can't get enough movie gross guessing (and who can?) you can go to Guess The Gross.com.

Win prizes every week by guessing the opening weekend grosses of new feature films. It's a cool site and

it's run by a couple of our own players. 

 

Good Luck!
