SUMMER MOVIE CONTEST 2013

Home News Rules Smokey's Scratches Contest 2014 Contest 2013 Contest 2012 Fall Contest 2011 Contest 2011 Contest 2010 Contest 2009 Contest 2008 Contest 2007 Contest 2006 Contest 2005 Contest 2004 Contest 2003 Contest 2002 Contest 2001 Contest 2000

It's the most wonderful time of the year!  Wait, what did you say?  Christmas?  Oh, yeah Christmas.  Well, it's the 2nd most
wonderful time of the year!  Now what are you saying?  Halloween?  C'mon!  Give me this one.  It's Summer Move Contest
time!  It's at least one of the ten most wonderful times of the year, right?  Right!

Another Summer Movie Contest is in the record books and with 41 points this year's winner is Mike C.!  Congratulations
Mike!.  With that victory Mr. C. joins an elite group who have won this contest twice.  Win a third time and you're guaranteed
to be in the all of fame.  In 2nd place is the guy who won last year, Peter.  Peter had 36 points and came
oh, so close to a repeat victory this year.  In a tie for 3rd place with 31 points each, we have Richard and contest founder
Smokey.  It was another nail biter and fun was had by all.  I can't wait until next year!

This is the home of the Summer Movie Contest where people try to guess the top 20 box office grossing movies of the
summer before any of them have been released.  It's nearly impossible, but like most nearly impossible things it's fun to try.  If
you scroll down just a bit, you'll see the current top 20 movies of the summer of 2013 and if you scroll down just a bit more
you'll see all of our picks.  I've included our email addresses in case you want to say, "Hey neighbor.  I haven't seen The Fast
and The Furious 1-5; do you think I'll be able to follow the plot of the 6th one?  If so, let's go to the special midnight showing
on Thursday." 

If you'd like to figure out a little more about what's going on here, you can check out The Rules.  If you're still interested after
that, you can see how this summer is going by checking out The News.  And if your timing is just right, there might even be
an update over at Smokey's Scratches, where the founder of this contest gives you his unique take on who's going to win this
thing.  Although I just checked and we haven't updated "Smokey's Scratches" since 2008, so that might be a waste of time.
You can also check out every Summer Movie Contest since 2000 by clicking the appropriate link above.  For example, if you
wanted to find out where "Austin Powers in Goldmember" finished, you'd click on "Contest 2002", but I'm certain that you
already knew that. 

Now get out there and guess those grosses like no one is watching.
