    I'm in because I have one thing on my mind:

    Last Five Films I've Seen (Out of 5)

    Tetsuo: The Iron Man (Tsukamoto, 1989) WTF
    The Wolf Man (Waggner, 1941) 4
    The Exterminating Angel (Buñuel, 1962) 4.5
    Maniac (Lustig, 1980) 4.5
    Friday The 13th Part V: A New Beginning (Steinmann, 1985) 2
    Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (Hedden, 1989) 3
    Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood (Buechler, 1988) 4
    Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance (Misumi, 1972) 4.5

    The last movie I saw in a theater before the apocalypse was Cats.

    Let that sink in.

    We pick movies released in October-March, with the intention of guessing what will make the most money domestically. Keep in mind, not guessing what will be good, but what will bank. Each movie gets one month (4 x 7 days) of wide release (200+ theaters) to make as much as possible, with a 200 million dollar limit.

    Box Office Mojo is our scorekeeper, and I also use it for its release scheduling. It's easy to whip through it to see what's coming out in the next few months.

    We have a whole list of nit picky rules somewhere, but that's the basics. After we complete the draft all you have to do is sit back and watch. Unless a release moves and needs a replacement, thats it.

    Madman's first fantasy draft. I should've copied and pasted the rules. Apologies.

    Also according to the cast of the current one it's actually Jumanji 4, heh, due to Zathura.
