Well, well, well.  Look who decided to come crawling back to the Summer Movie Contest.  I knew you’d be back.  Despite your many protestations to the contrary, I knew you’d realize that you couldn’t live without it.  I know a lot of things were said, both by you and the Summer Movie Contest; A lot of things that can’t be taken back now.  But I just have one more thing to add; Welcome! 

You’ve found the page for the Summer Movie Contest of 2012!  And if I do say so myself, this is at least one of the best 20 pages I’ve done for this contest so far.  If you scroll down a bit (and you know you want to) you’ll see the current top 20 movies of the summer.  If you scroll down a bit more than that (and I bet you can’t help yourself), you’ll find all of our picks.  I’ve also included everyone’s email addresses so that you can send that special message that you haven’t had the courage to send so far.  Something like, “Hey, let’s go see ‘Magic Mike’ together if you know what I mean?” 

If you’re trying to figure out what this contest is or remember how the scoring works or if you’re just an avid reader of strange websites, a good place to start is with The Rules.  If you’d like to get a better sense of how this year’s contest is treating you, check out The News or Smokey’s Scratches.  You can also take a walk down memory lane and view old contest pages by clicking the links at the top of the page.  And really, who couldn’t use the exercise of a walk down memory lane? 

And if you’d like to say something really mean or really nice or really in between, Click Here, to send us an email.  Now go out there and win one for the Gipper!
