So, for the first time in Obsessive Viewer history, my podcast cohosts and I are putting ourselves through a Summer Box Office Challenge. The inaugural Summer B.O. Challenge was covered extensively in yesterday’s podcast episode (OV166 – Summer Box Office Challenge 2016). But, in case you’re not the podcast type, I decided to throw our selections into a blog post for the website.
Here you’ll find a breakdown of the rules, the stakes, and the scoring method that will be used when the results are tallied in September. You’ll also find our selections. Don’t be afraid to let us know how utterly wrong you think we are. Continue reading →
Mike returns to the podcast for our first ever Summer Box Office Challenge. We’ve each chosen our predictions for the top ten Summer 2016 domestic box office results. We’ve also guessed (likely wildly inaccurately) what the domestic gross will be for each movie in the top ten by Labor Day weekend, and we’ve also guessed highest and lowest opening weekend numbers as well as the highest and lowest Rotten Tomatoes score in the top ten.
All of this will be graded on a point system at the end of summer. The winner will get to choose a movie (with no limitations or restrictions) for the other hosts to watch and review on a future episode of the podcast. Continue reading →

But the story is a drag for me and & although this is regarded as one of (if not the) best John Wayne performance, he and the character don't really do much. In par […]
