Box Office Blitz Playoffs Round 2!

Round 1 featured one upset with Michael Offutt knocking off #2 seed David Walston.  Can Michael continue his Cinderella run all the way to the top?  Don't ask me; I'm not a bloody psychic.

The rules remain the same; only the matchups have changed.

In the winner's bracket this week we have:
#1 Rusty Carl vs.
#4 Andrew Leon
(It's just like when Kirk and Spock had to fight that duel in Star Trek)

and then

#3 Chris Dilloway vs.
#7 Michael Offutt
(This is the opposite of the other matchup)

And for the rest of us the matchups are:

#2 David Walston vs.
#8 Briane Pagel

and then

#5 Maurice Mitchell vs.
#6 P.T. Dilloway
(I'd talk some smack here but given my track record that's not a good idea.)

Ding, ding, ding, the fight's on!

Here are the movies to choose from this week:
  • Dallas Buyer's Club
  • Delivery Man
  • Ender's Game
  • Free Birds
  • Frozen
  • Genius on Hold*
  • Go for Sisters*
  • Gravity
  • Homefront
  • Jackass: Bad Grandpa
  • Last Vegas
  • Out of the Furnace
  • Philomena
  • The Best Man Holiday 
  • The Book Thief
  • The Christmas Candle 
  • The Hobbit:  The Desolation of Smaug*
  • The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
  • Thor: The Dark World
  • Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas*
 My picks that will totally crush Maurice's (not) are:
  1. The Hobbit 2:  The Search for More Money $80M
  2. Frozen $25M
  3. Tyler Perry's Wearing a Fat Suit Again $15M
Now make your picks in the comments!


  1. Hobbit 2: $70 mil
    Madea's Christmas $30 mil
    Frozen $20 mil

    Madea.... I just don't understand.

  2. 1) The Hobbit: $85 million
    2) Tyler Perry's A Madea's Christmas $35 million
    3) Frozen $18 million

    May the best man win.

  3. This is getting interesting. I wonder who the winner will be.

  4. So do I advance if I win? Or lose? This is so confusing to me.

    1. The Hobbit: $75 million.
    2. Madea's Christmas $50 million
    3. Hunger Games $10 mil.

    David, you need not worry. I don't believe I've ever won a week. My most successful outing was last Friday, when I missed it.

  5. 1. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug $80M
    2.Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas $27M
    3. Frozen $19M

  6. I'll feel bad about beating you at your own game Pat, but no way I'm getting that Sacko. ;)
    1. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smuag: $76 million.
    2. Tyler Perry's A Madea Christmas $49 million
    3. Hunger Games: Catching Fire $11 mil.

  7. Well, since I only have to beat Rusty, I'm going with
    1. Desolation of Smaug: $72m
    2. That Tyler Perry Christmas thing: $28m
    3. Frozen: $18m

    Now I just need to hope that Hobbit tops my guess.

  8. Hobbit pt2 - $83m
    madea - $22m
    Frozen - $18m

  9. Hey Grumpy :)

    Seasons Greetings; Happy New Year; Good luck with all your endeavors.
