    Is It going to be huge or not? If so, looks like Winston may take it again.

    Oddly enough, it's looking like it might be. The history of Stephen King at the box office is not a pretty picture, so I thought it was safe to pass on that one. But it's got next-to-zero competition and the reviews are actually remarkably good.

    Excellent! So far, we've got everyone back except dreamdead. As promised, I'll give him until the 12th to respond.

    After that, I'll open it up to new participants, with a cap at 6 per league.

    I'm in. Lamenting my choice of many mediocre comedies. Seems like they just don't sustain much anymore--though nothing really sustains anymore.

    I've come up with a very silly new stat to quantify how well players have done historically. I will call it DSQ (Draft Success Quotient).

    I calculated it by taking the number of times you have won a draft round versus your opponents (selected the movie with the highest box office total), minus the number of times you have selected the worst grossing movie in a round, divided by your total number of rounds played.

    If you selected a 'round average', that round does not count for you (kind of like talking a walk in baseball). If you selected a replacement film in a given round, that score does count.

    I've totaled up everyone's DSQ throughout all seasons played, including this one (but only for rounds that have been completed). Naturally, the more often you've played, the more accurate your DSQ.

    Again, I realize this is very silly.

    Anyway, here you go ... (wins/losses/total rounds played)

    1. Winston (13/2/23) .478
    2. Skitch (14/3/33) .333
    3. Henry Gale (4/1/13) .231
    4. Ezee (10/6/39) .103
    4t. Lazlo (10/6/39) .103
    6. Ivan (11/8/41) .073
    7. TGM (8/7/29) .034
    8. Duke (5/5/39) .000
    8t. transmogrifier (1/1/5) .000
    9. dreamdead (4/5/14) -.071
    10. Gizmo (4/6/18) -.111
    11. Spinal (7/12/39) -.128

    Well, it looks like Winston's DSQ is going up even higher.

    Probably Skitch's too.

    For Fall-Winter Season 2017-18, here are the leagues:

    A:
    Ezee
    Ivan
    Lazlo
    Skitch
    Winston

    B:
    dreamdead
    Duke
    Spinal
    TGM
    transmogrifier

    Somebody from League A, please post a randomized draft order for League B (so that I don't have anything to do with it).

    Once that's been done, I'll post the new thread and drafting can begin!

    I estimate Kingsman will need to make around $180 to push Ivan over the top.

    Edit: just a guess off the top of my head.
