    If anyone is struggling on how to adjust for guessing not new releases, I wanted to share this resource:
    https://www.boxofficemojo.com/weekend/

    On that page, you can view by each individual weekend and see how a movie holds up (or doesn't) after its initial release.

    Also..
    For Ralph, Creed, The Grinch, Beasts2

    Please put your guesses in order from highest $ to lowest $, it will make life much easier for me. I've fixed yours, @Bluemilk.
    :D

    If estimates are correct I actually did well. I did overestimate by a small margin. But I'm happy with how I picked this time. They were all within range.

    I think drinking chocolate milk is the key to my success.

    Does anyone watch the new Magnum show? Its not as good as the original. I bought the entire series but I just watched the first couple of shows. I want my money back. The show would have been good if the actor that plays TC was Magnum, and the actor that plays Magnum pilots the chopper.

    @Lock_S_Foils Thanks for that. Classic Magnum. The new Magnum is a good looking guy. I guess the ladies like him, but he lacks the charm of the original.
    The black guy on the show is a huge guy and has a charming smile, sort of like a black version of the original Magnum. I'm not saying that they should've made Magnum Black. I think he would have been a better choice. The guy who plays Magnum comes off as mousy and small. Making the black guy Magnum would made for allot of innuendo and slick jokes to say the least.

    @Rogues1138 Thanks dude.....here is a story about that episode I posted. I was at college during that time (Penn State) in the dorms, we had no TVs in our rooms and had to go to the "TV Room" at the end of the hall. We had about 30 guys in there that night, remember vividly. As they got to the last scene we were all thinking to ourselves "Magnum is gonna let that snake walk away".....then he says "Ivan, did you see the sunrise today?".....we all went wild when he pulled the trigger. Never anything like this seen on TV, it was really groundbreaking. Nowadays that scene wouldn't even raise an eyebrow....
