SOTM 5: Biggest FUBAR question of all time!

Recommended Posts

Between Memorial weekend and July 4th holiday releases, I have chosen 10 films that will qualify for this SOTM question.

 

Blended 

A Million Ways to Die in the West

Edge of Tomorrow

Maleficient

The Fault in Our Stars

22 Jump Street

Think Like a Man Too

Tammy

Deliver Us From Evil

Earth to Echo

 

You have 8 possible SOTM questions to choose from.

 

Your choices are:

 

What will have the best OW (this will include any 5 day openings).

What will have the best total?

What will have the best opening day?

What will have the best midnight/early shows from the day before the official release?

What will have the best legs (multiplier...note, multiplier will count from a three day OW only)?

What will have the smallest opening weekend?

What will have the smallest opening day?

Name any film that will not have at least a 3 multiplier (note, if you choose to answer this one, and you feel that no film will miss a 3X, you can answer "none")?

 

Points:

 

Get any question right, win 7,000 points

Get any question wrong, lose 15,000 points

 

You are allowed to go for a maximum of three questions.  

If you answer all three questions correctly, you get a bonus of 3000 points so the maximum you can earn for this question is 24,000 points.

 

Of course, you can go for all 8 but if you do, you must get at least 7 of the 8 correct.  You have a window of one wrong.  If you get 7 or 8 right, you will obviously get a massive amount of points (49,000-56,000 points).  If you go for all 8 and you do not get at least 7 of the 8 correct, you will lose the same amount of points as the maximum win, yes, 56,000 points.  

 

If you want to abstain from answering this question, you get 2000 points.

 

To make it even more interesting, I'm making the deadline Wednesday May 28th at 6:59PM.  This means you will have Blended's numbers already.  

 

You have a lot of time to work on this one.  There are a lot of points for or against.  Choose wisely.  You don't want to end up like this guy:

I've read over the question 3 times.  I think it's pretty clear but I'm not sure how it will look to you.  If you have any questions, please ask them here.

 

Good luck!

So the 3000 point bonus is only if you go for 3 and get 3 correct, not if you get 8 out of 8.Also if you get 7 correct and 1 incorrect, you will not lose the 15k for that incorrect answer?Is this right?

No, you are over thinking it.  The 3000 bonus is only for 3/3.

If you get 7/8 correct, you get 49,000 points, as stated....no loss of 15,000.
