Moviecast Top Five Movies episode 096 – 2018 Summer Movie Draft Moviecast Top Five Movies episode 096 – 2018 Summer Movie Draft

This episode has Jonathan (@berkreviews), Corey (@coreyrstarr), and Michael (@servermonkey) joined with Matt Hudson (@wiwt_uk) and Craig Sybert (@MusicMusing_) to draft the 2018 Summer movies. This works a lot like a fantasy football draft where each person picks one movie for five rounds that will represent their team. Each player earns points for their movies based on the Domestic Summer Box Office from and the movie’s Metascore from used as a percent. We drop the excess zeroes to keep the point totals relatively simple.

The players have a chance to earn bonus points based on the Over/Under system. The average domestic gross for the top 25 movies from last summer was $130,000,000. A player must guess if each of their movies will be over or under that total. They earn bonus points for each one they get right on a shifting scale.

You can follow along with the game all summer on our Google Spreadsheet that will be updated every Monday. The player with the most points wins and gets to pick a movie for the other four to watch.

Top Five Movies formats

There are two types of Top Five Movie episodes. The traditional format of the show features Jonathan and two guests, usually Corey and Mike, who create their lists for the chosen topic in secret and reveal them on the episode. The other format is an interview style where a guest discusses films in general and ends the episode going over their personal, all-time Top Five.
