    i think the farewell will win it's share of critics awards to keep itself in the conversation. it's basically the best reviewed movie of the year so far.

     

    Then again, Leave No Trace was the highest reviewed film of last year around this time. Poor film debuted at Sundance just like The Farewell did. Poor film couldn't gain any traction, despite support from critics awards.

     

    Of course, The Farewell has a little bit more going for it. A lot more box office, diversity stuff, Awkwafina, A24, and the fact that, so far, this year is WEAKSAUCE for film. So it wouldn't surprise me to see this film fade out of the conversation, but it also wouldn't surprise me to see it land a nomination here and there. Its best hopes are Actress, Supporting Actress, and Screenplay, though... I think Best Picture might actually slip away...

    Any buzz for this? @SLAM! do you plan on seeing it?

     

    I think I want to see The Peanut Butter Falcon first, but I could see myself seeing this on Labor Day Weekend. It looks like Alex Kendrick's directorial capability continues to evolve with each film that he makes, and I would absolutely love to go support his new film. If reviews surpass my expectations, then that'll increase my desire to see it.

     

    If grassroots campaigning really ignites in my church circle like it did with God's Not Dead and War Room, then I'll probably be seeing it anyway. I'll put in a review if I do.


  3. I really don't know what to think about the whole debacle, but I only have good will for you, JCS. You were one of the more *eccentric* users on the forum, and I miss seeing you on here. If what you say about the contractor is true, I'm sorry for what I said in response to the debacle. And I wish nothing but the best for you, wherever your life takes you.

  4. I've said something along the same lines before, but I think Hustlers is uniquely suited to be a hit in this current moment, because it feels like a film that can speak to many of the people who are a part of the culture. That, and it doesn't look half bad. It's so aggressively feminist that it's bound to peak people's interest in this day and age. I wouldn't be surprised by a $25M+ OW.

    I want to officially announce that I am pushing the deadline of all the challenges and things like that to 11:59 PM PST. That's three extra hours for everyone to send in their numbers for those who need it. The trade off is that, for weekly challenges, any predictions sent to me after that time will receive a -10% deduction.

     

    (Edit: I probably should've specified this earlier, but the hard cut-off for predictions to be sent is the announcement of the Thursday Preview numbers.)

     

    But please remember that predictions for the Weekly Challenge are due tonight at 11:59 PM PST.

     

    If you did not send in predictions for last week's Weekly Challenge and you do not send in predictions for this one, you will be automaticallly eliminated from the game.

     

    Thank you! I eagerly await your predictions!

  6. TRIBAL COUNCIL #1

     

    @baumer @Fancyarcher @PanaMovie @Premium George @Reddroast @Rorschach @Wrath

     

    SLAM!: Hi, Team Sokovia! Welcome to the first Tribal Council of the season! It's time for you guys to vote one of your teammates out!

    PanaMovie: (cocks an eyebrow) You say that like it's a happy thing...

    Fancyarcher: But it's really a sad thing...

    Reddroast: Well, at least we can vote out one of the ones that didn't play! Right?

     

    *Voting commences.*

     

    Fancyarcher: I'm sorry... *He puts his vote in the box and walks off.*

     

    Rorschach: This is for the good of the team... *He carefully places his vote.*

     

    PanaMovie: Lots of easy targets to choose from this time around... *Slams his vote in and trots off.*

     

    Reddroast: Hmm... This person seems like a good one to vote out... *He hurriedly jots down his vote.*

     

     

    SLAM!: Huh? Only four of you voted...

    *baumer, Premium George, and Wrath sit in silence.*

    SLAM!: Well... There's no rule against not voting. Before I reveal the votes, may the winner of the Second Immunity challenge please reveal themselves?

     

    Spoiler

    *PanaMovie stands up.*

    PanaMovie: That would be me.

    SLAM!: 95.50%. Very impressive score. That would've been tough to beat.

    *Reddroast gulps.*

     

    SLAM!: Let's reveal the votes. The first vote is for...

    Spoiler

    Reddroast

     

    SLAM!: The second vote is for...

    Spoiler

    Premium George

     

    SLAM!: The third vote is for...

    Spoiler

    Reddroast

     

    SLAM!: First player eliminated off Survivor: Season Six...

    REDDROAST

     

    SLAM!: That's three votes, that's enough, you need to bring me your torch.

    Reddroast: Dang, man...

    *Reddroast brings his torch to SLAM!.*

    SLAM!: Reddroast. The tribe has spoken.

    *SLAM! snuffs out Reddroast's torch. Reddroast turns to the other team members.*

    Reddroast: No hard feelings. Good luck to you all.

    *Reddroast leaves with a smile on his face.*

     

    CONFESSIONAL - Reddroast: It's a shame. I would've kept the player who was actually playing, but... It is what it is.

     

    SLAM!: 1 down, 20 to go! Can the contestants survive the next crazy and imaginative challenges? Who will be eliminated next? Will any of the competitors who did not play the last Weekend Challenge be eliminated due to negligence? And what crazy twist would come out of a mass exodus of players? Find out on the next episode of Survivor!

    *Fancyarcher, PanaMovie, and Rorschach meet together.*

    Fancyarcher: I think we need to have one on ones with each of the other three team members. Ask why they didn't play the Weekend Challenge.

    Rorschach: That's a good idea. Fancyarcher, you talk to Wrath. PanaMovie, you talk to Premium George. I'll talk to baumer.

    PanaMovie: Why do I have to talk to the narcissist...

     

    *Rorschach meets with baumer.*

    Rorschach: Hey, baumer.

    baumer: Hey.

    Rorschach: You've been absent from competition... You were a great player last season... What's up?

    *baumer takes some time to respond.*

    Rorschach: It's okay. You can tell me. I won't be mad.

    baumer: ...I'm not sure if I want to be here...

    Rorschach: You're not?

    *baumer hunches forward and stares down at the ground.*

    Rorschach: It's okay. If you leave, that's fine. But it'd be great if you played. We'd love to have you on our team.

    *Rorschach leaves baumer sitting there.*

     

    *PanaMovie meets with Premium George.*

    PanaMovie: Hey, dude, I just wanted to ask--

    Premium George: Do not bother. I will only play if Wrath plays.

    PanaMovie: Hey. Just because I'm a newcomer doesn't mean you can push me around.

    Premium George: I can push anyone around. I am the Most Premium George.

    PanaMovie: Really, man? See a psychologist when you're out of the game.

    *PanaMovie storms away.*

     

    *Fancyarcher meets Wrath.*

    Fancyarcher: Hey, buddy...

    Wrath: Please don't call me buddy... We're definitely friends, but... don't call me buddy...

    Fancyarcher: That's fine. Wrath... You're still playing with us, right?

    *Wrath thinks for a moment.*

    Wrath: If I tell you something, can you keep it a secret?

    Fancyarcher: Sure.

    Wrath: I didn't throw that Flash Fight. And I was shaken up by that failure. That's why I...

    Fancyarcher: ...Weren't you going to do this for Han?

    *Wrath thinks for a moment.*

    Fancyarcher: Your Flash Fight mishap, your feud with Premium George, all the pressure... you don't have to let it overwhelm you. Team Sokovia is here to support you, no matter what happens.

    *Fancyarcher walks away, and Wrath thinks to himself.*

     

    *Fancyarcher, PanaMovie, and Rorschach meet together.*

    Rorschach: The good news is that, if they do play the next weekend challenge, they'll still be in the game. I'm just not sure if they will...

    Fancyarcher: No matter what happens, let's remember going forward that the three of us shared this moment.

    PanaMovie: I'm down for that.

    *The three of them huddle up and put their fists in a circle. Their bonds deepen.*

    This is way more Thom Yorke than Flea. What did Flea actually do here?

     

    I'm not sure what Flea contributed to the song, but I do know that he's worked with Thom Yorke before; there was a 'supergroup' style group with them and other musicians called Atoms For Peace. I don't remember how integral Flea was to that project, but I do know that Flea seems to be more musically inclined than being the bassist of the Red Hot Chili Peppers would lead one to believe at first glance.

    I have another question that might be obvious to people more experienced with survivor: what happens if the person who received the most votes for elimination wins the immunity challenge?    

     

    Is it:  

    A) next most votes gets eliminated

    B ) no one eliminated that week  

    C) vote again to eliminate someone who definitely won’t be immune 

    D) something else   

     

     

    Also how are ties broken, e.g. if one person receives one elimination vote and 2 other people get 3 each?

     

    In the event that the person with the majority vote wins the immunity challenge, the player with the next most votes is eliminated.

     

    In the event of a tie, those 2 players with 3 votes each will have their Second Immunity scores compared. The player with the lowest Second Immunity average percentage out of those two players is eliminated from the game.

    Please keep in mind that your predictions for Second Immunity are due tonight at 11:59 PM EST! Votes for who want to eliminate are due tomorrow at 5:00 PM EST, but I recommend providing your vote alongside the Second Immunity prediction. Again, you are providing Tuesday Grosses for the following films:

     

    Good Boys

    The Angry Birds Movie II

    Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

    The Art of Racing in the Rain

    Spider-Man: Far From Home

     

    Of course, you don't have to provide numbers for this, but... it could be your only chance to save yourself from elimination.

     

    Thank you, and good luck!
