Groucho wants to save his own embarrassment.

Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation opens with 96%. So far it's 25 fresh, 1 rotten. It's looking promising.

i.hope is fucked. stuffp isn't. Well, he still is, but not with this pick. ;)

Yeah, :rockon:

Isn't there a saying for this, making something bad less worse with something.

Thanks Groucho!

But I also feel it looks too messy now, what I actually meant was, only mark the single worst score in the game. The "Lanterne rouge" so to say.

You could keep the look as you prefer though.


What does everyone else think? Picking the absolute worst prediction doesn't really provide much information game-wise except to allow everyone to point at the person who did it -- and even then, that's not that important because it's the overall score that matters.


I like the current chart better because it contains more information. But the original is also good as it is more intuitive. Either way, I appreciate the effort you put in making them.

Back to the old way of doing the chart. I started to update it the new way but it took twice as long because almost every time a film changes, I have to change the colors and bolding on two numbers instead of just one and it's not worth it...

You can figure out the best and worst on your own, after all. :)

MI:5 doing well...I also really like my vacation pick, but not feeling fantastic four that high at the moment.

Let's see... how many games are you hosting that get updated almost every single day? Oh, right, none. None? Why ... that's the very definition of "doing nothing" isn't it?

I think it was clear that he was thanking you for recent [non] developments, not for overall hosting of the game.

If you want thanks for hosting the game, I thank you very much. But we both know that's not what mine or stuffp's comment was about.

Post Re: Tomato Picker 7/26
I was actually thanking Groucho for 2 things.
1. For updating the chart once again, and without the worst numbers it just looks cleaner and better than with the worst numbers. Although I'm still a fan of marking the single worst prediction.
2. For letting me pass him in the ranking this game :P

1. Thanks.

2. I only let you do that for one day. :thumbsup:

Mission Impossible: 97 to 90
Southpaw: 58 to 59
Vacation: 14 to 25


The numbers moved in my favor.

Post Re: Tomato Picker 7/30
2nd or last are both still a very plausible finish for me. I really don't think Hitman will go sub 50. And I can't imagine Regression not being loved by everyone, although i.hope has predicted a very tactical 65 there.

Wait and see, wait and see...like the moniker used for the character, the movie will be my silent assassin in moving up the ranks.
