  1. I’m seeing Frozen tonight in SF courtesy of D23 so I’ll have the total inside scoop on the box office! (not)
    Free tickets + bridge toll + parking + dinner = the most expensive free movie ever.

  2. FROZEN is fantastically entertaining, and quite possibly the best animated kids film of the past few years. Boom. Also, I hardly ever watch animated kids movies.

  6. Big week for the top three!

    Rob – 4 (Q1) + 1 (Q3) + 1 (Q4) + 1 (Q5) + .5 (Q6) = 17
    Juan – 1 (Q2) + 1 (Q3) + 1 (Q4) + 1 (Q5) + .5 (Q6) = 14
    Joe – 2 (Q1) + 1 (Q3) + 1 (Q4) + 1 (Q5) + .5 (Q6) = 10.5
    Jackrabbit Slim – 1 (Q3) + 1 (Q5) + .5 (Q6) = 10
    James – 1 (Q3) + 1 (Q5) + .5 (Q6) = 9
    Filmman – .5

  7. I think you have Joe and I swapped for Q1. He’s closest and gets the 4 pts leaving me 2nd place and 2 pts. Or am I totally misreading the abundance of numbers above…

  8. Thank you Rob! I was going to come in and claim “MATHS!” Plus I got Q2 correct. I should only be 1.5 out of first.
    EDIT: and Slim & James missed Q5 but got the points. Who’s running this ramshackle operation?!?!

  9. Ouch, I calculated points while on a phone call. Will not be doing that again!

    Ok, will correct everything later tonight or in am unless someone else wants to!

  10. Ok, I stopped smoking peyote and I think these are all correct.

    Nick – w2 total 24 q1 – 17, q2 – 31, q3 – .5, q4 – .182, q5 – 1, q6 – 1 = 2,028
    Rob – w2 total 9.5 q1- 2, q3 – 1, q4 – 1, q5 – 1, q6 – .5 = 15
    Juan – w2 total 9.5 q2 – 1, q3 – 1, q4 – 1, q5 – 1, q6 – .5 = 14
    Joe – w2 total 5 q1 – 4, q2 -1, q3 – 1, q4 – 1, q5 – 1, q6 – .5 = 13.5
    Jackrabbit Slim – w2 total 7.5 q3 – 1, q4 – 1, q6 -.5 = 10
    James – w2 total 6.5 q3 – 1, q4 – 1, q6 – .5 = 9
