I'm fine with a fifth place finish.

Wrapped up.

Last update:
october 18   Same story: No movement. No changes... SCHMOO is the winner, beating out GRITZ by just 4 points! Eeyore takes 3rd.

See you next summer where we'll be inundated with sequels, prequels, and re-dos galore including: Guardians of the Galaxy, Pirates of the Caribbean, World War Z, Spider-Man, Cars, Transformers — just to name a few. Also: Baywatch and Dunkirk.

Previous updates:
october 11   No movement. No changes. SCHMOO is 1st, GRITZ is 2nd, and Eeyore is 3rd. Next week may be the last update this year.
october 4   DON'T BREATH overtakes the TURTLES as the only mover in the top 20 this week. Rankings are unchanged: SCHMOO is 1st, GRITZ is 2nd, and Eeyore is 3rd.
september 28   Two movers this week that shake things up: DON'T BREATH moves up two spots and GHOSTBUSTERS edges out CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE by just $7000 to take 8th place. The top 2 players get flipped! SCHMOO overtakes GRITZ by 6 points. Eeyore stays at 3rd.
