The Gross Movie Pool: Summer

The 2016 Summer Movie Pool - Final Report

There have been Summer Movie Pools that have ended in whimpers before, but this has practically been a whole summer of pretending you’re excited about the eighth or ninth seasons of long-running shows like Frasier or Grey’s Anatomy. We pretty much know what we’re getting, we know it was way better a few years ago, and yet we’re too lazy to actually stop watching because we think it can’t really be all that bad. Maybe I should be thankful about those super-sized theater sodas that cause multiple trips to the bathroom during screenings. At least something was happening during the movie.

Suicide Squad Kills; Pete’s Dragon Goes Puff; Ben-Hur Been Gone - Weeks 11-12-13

This is seriously one of the nuttiest summers ever. We had only one big hit in July and clearly the same is going to be said of August. Why do they even release all these films if people would just rather be home watching Stranger Things on Netflix which probably cost $2 million to make for the entire eight hours?! Look, if it’s between a no-name cast in small-town Indiana or Jonah Hill as an arms dealer in War Dogs, we’re all in on Indiana, right?

Ghostbusters Didn’t Answer; Star Trek Beyond is Be-Under; Bourne on Life Support - Weeks 11-12-13

Remember how everything was going to pick up in July? Well, except for the now “not so” Secret Life of Pets, the only things picked up were to be taken out to the back alley.

‘Pets’ Shows ‘The BFG’ Who’s The BFD - Weeks 9 & 10

The Fourth of July has often meant fireworks are happening inside movie theaters and not just outside them. This year's holiday releases were more like firecrackers and that sound of the Piccolo Pete winding down is the direction they're heading as Dory washed them all away.

After ‘Finding Dory,’ All Other Films Are Lost - Weeks 6, 7, & 8

After the month of May produced only one likely film to end up in the Top Five this summer, June was certain to be that month to fill in those gaps. Instead, only one June film has swam to the top and the rest just keep sinking as do my chances at ever winning this movie pool again. Like Christina Aguilera always trying to recapture her 90’s magic, all I can do is get hair extensions and breast augmentations to try and remain relevant. Ok, maybe it’s nothing like that.

Humans Have Evolved Beyond Mutants As ‘X-Men’ and ‘Turtles’ Slide - Weeks 4 & 5

Yeah, yeah, I missed a Memorial Day update, but since most people missed going to the theater that weekend that’s not on me. Likewise, I’m blessed enough to be sitting on a balcony overlooking the Sea of Cortez right now and I’m doing this instead of ordering my 17th Mai Colada Cerveza Rita of the day, so just do what kids are told in preschool: You get what you get and you don’t have a fit! The folks who should be having a fit? Anyone who picked a film in the past five weeks that wasn’t named Civil War.

‘Angry Birds’ Not As Upset As New ‘Neighbors’ - Weeks 2 & 3

The most exciting weekends in the summer movie pool aren’t when Icee introduce new flavors at the snack bar, when you’re traveling around smaller cities and find movie ticket prices for under $10, or when you catch a trailer that shows someone’s still employing Shia LaBeouf. It’s when two or more big films open at the same time and duke it out for one crown: Weekend Box-Office Winner. Just like the Highlander, there can only be one. Everything else becomes “The #1 Family Film In America Starring Larry The Cable Guy”
