Welcome to the Summer Movie contest for 2015!

Welcome to the Summer Movie Contest of 2015!  Possibly the single greatest movie contest in human history!
 
Take a look around.  Make yourself at home.  Take your shoes off and sit on the couch.  Wait, no, put your
 shoes back on.  That was a terrible, terrible mistake.  But you can still sit on the couch. 

Congratulation to Don for winning this year's contest!  He's one of the coolest guys I've ever met and the fact that
I'm him is not the only reason I'm saying that.  That makes two years in a row I've won.  I'm not saying that I'm
the greatest player in the history of this contest, but I'm not not saying it either.  A hearty pat on the back to Russ
as well for finishing in 2nd this year.  Nicely done Russ!

Just a little way down the page you’ll find the FINAL Top 20 Movies of the summer.  A little way below that,
 you’ll find all of our picks, final points, and final rank.  I’ve even included each person’s email address so that you can say,
Hey, way to go on guessing Pixels as the number 1 movie of the summer.  I sure didn’t see that one coming” or
“If Channing Tatum doesn’t win the Oscar for Magic Mike XXL, clearly there is no justice in the world”. 

Not familiar with the Summer Movie Contest?  You’re in for a treat.  You can start by checking out The Rules.
 
Want to see how this year’s contest is going?  You can read The News.  Want to see how the last 15 of these
 things turned out?  Click the appropriate link above.  Like if you want to see how I won last year’s contest, you
 can click “Contest 2014” to check it out. 

Now guess those grosses like the fate of the world depends on it.  Because it just might.
