Fixing Films Box Office Game #2 Winner

Leave a comment

When asked what his favorite carbonated beverage was Machete merely replied..."Slice." I didn't have the heart to tell him it was now called Sierra Mist.

Sorry for the delay folks but finally we have a winner.  In this addition of the Fixing Films Box Office Game we’ve guessed opening weekend box office of Machete starring Danny Trejo and my super fav Jessica Alba.

Drumroll Please.

With a weekend gross of $14,102,888 our closest guess was Josh Feldman with is guess of 14 Million dollars!   Fixing Films sat down with Josh to ask him how it felt to truly be, the cat’s pajamas.

Hope you got your tickets to the gun show! Wowsers!

Fixing Films:  Have you ever used a Machete?

Josh:  Briefly, while stationed in Nam. It was my weapon of choice for removing ears from the VC.

Fixing Films:  Where are you going to display your trophy?

Josh:  Above my toilet, right next to my Oscar and ever-growing stack of Juggs Magazines.

Fixing Films:  Have you ever won anything this prestigious?

Josh:  No, but I’ve definitely lost better contests.

Fixing Films:  Are you psychic?

Josh:  Yes…but you knew that already….

Fixing Films:  Where are going to spend your $25 gift card and why?

Josh:  Dinner for one at the Claimjumper.  Their mudpie is a revelation.

Fixing Films:  What’s your favorite movie?

Josh:  FREDDY GOT FINGERED….”What’s that clicking sound?? It’s my HOOOVES, my HOOOOOOOOVES!”

(For those of you that don’t know he’s referring to Zebras in America…see below…)

In his spare time Josh enjoys long walks on the beach with his beautiful fiancé.

Long walk on the beach, CHECK. Next up, Romantic candlelit dinner.

In his spare time Josh is also partner in a prestigious construction firm specializing in schools, daycare facilities and treehouses with his longtime friend Bob.

Just two men...building an empire.

Josh will be taking home a $25 gift certificate, custom gold trophy, and a certificate of Amesomeness.  Congrats again Josh and for the rest of you that didn’t win remember this.  DREAMS DO COME TRUE.  Keep playing and YOU could be next!

Box Office Game #2: Machete – Multiple Prizes

1 Comment

So with all the fun I had with Box Office Game #1 I’ve decided to do another contest.  This time with some tweaks to make Game #2 bigger and better than the first one.

One week from tomorrow Machete starring Danny Trejo, Lindsay Lohan, Cheech Marin, Michelle Rodriguez, Robert DeNiro, Jessica Alba, Steven Seagal and Don Johnson opens everywhere.

When I compile my list of this year's top 10 films I'm pretty sure this movie will...make the cut.

The rules for this contest are very simple and participation is free.

1.  Subscribe to the blog via email and confirm your email address when WordPress sends you the confirmation email.

2.  Email fixingfilms@gmail.com your guess for how much money Machete will make in it’s opening weekend domestically. 10 Million?  15 Million?  2 Million?  (Guesses stop at 12 midnight on Thursday September 2nd.)

3.  The closest guess wins.

Now you may be asking: “What do I win Rob?  I LOOOOOOVEEE prizes!”

Answer:  TONS OF COOL PRIZES. (3 actually)

1.  $25 Gift Card to store of your choice.  (If I can purchase the gift card online you can have it.)

Your pick, any card, anywhere, to use on ANYTHING.

2.  HARDWARE.  This is the prize I’m most excited about.  Probably because as a kid I enjoyed winning trophies so much.  You will receive a Fixing Films Box Office Champ #1 trophy for first place.

Yes, mullets really do rock.

This is a trophy my friend Jae and I made for a Wrestling video game competition. Yes that's tin foil, colored tape and a wash cloth for a cape. He even has a champion's belt. P.S the trophy's hair is REAL cat hair from Jae's couch!!!

Note:  Your trophy will be real, NOT homemade.

3.  Certificate of Awesomeness.  Nothing says, I’m better than you than a certified certificate from movie blog website.  Proudly display this in your living room, dining room, bedroom or cubicle.  Your friends and co-workers will be so jealous when they see their inadequacy painted out for them in plain English.  Makes a great talking piece and is a great resume builder!

Are you awesome enough to be certified?

Any questions?  Email fixingfilms@gmail.com for answers.  Current subscribers just send an email with your guess.  So, what are you waiting for…SUBSCRIBE!!!
