It was a weird coincidence that the overall winner actually won a prize, as well. I didn't even gimmick it up with extra entries for those over 100, etc.

I didn't break the top 20. :-( haha. see you all next year. I got a slow start to this one and got a little burnt out near the end. But still acceptable numbers.

Thanks to caligula for hosting a great challenge and doing the final results list. I always get of kick out of seeing the final stats for a challenge. Congratulations to the winners and everyone who played this year. The first Drive-In etc. challenge was the first challenge I ever participated in so I'm really happy I could finally break 100.

And of course Hamilton Books just totally rocks!

Cool prizes. :up: Congrats to the winners, and thanks again to caligula and GoldenWheels.

I just barely made it to 100, but I had fun, mostly. I wish I could've gotten motivated enough to go back to my list to finish my comments on the films I watched, though.

Thanks for hosting this caligula. I think this just might be the most fun I've had with a challenge. I love that it allows for such a variety of films and that really helped to keep things fresh.

Thanks to Hamilton Book for sponsoring and congratulations to the folks who won something.

Congrats to the winners, and thanks to Caligula for running it and Golden Wheels for the sponsorship. It's a great challenge. Unfortunately, real life is getting in the way of my reel life, so I was lucky to get in what I did.

Thanks, Caligula and GoldenWheels! I didn't do as well as I expected, and I didn't get in the bulk watching that I did for some of the challenges earlier this year. But I do think it was successful in that I knocked a few key titles off my unwatched pile. I think disappointment with some DTV titles like Cruel Intentions 2 and Poison Ivy 2 (which I never did finish) took some of the wind out of my sails.

Top 5, baby! Someday that top spot will be mine.

I always enjoy this one because not only is it one of the few I'm able to hit triple digits, but I genuinely have a blast doing it. And what other challenge is it completely normal to stockpile for the next five years (i.e. it's cheap)? :lol:

And, as always, thanks to Caligula and GoldenWheels. :up:

Thanks Caligula and GoldenWheels!

My prize (Bare Behind Bars) came Today!

I'd like save it for the 4th Annual B-Movie Challenge, but I'll probably break down and watch it tonight.

Thanks for the thanks guys and enjoy the prizes guys but keep in mind Caligula does ten times the work I do, at least! Biggest part of my job was putting them in an envelope!

I'd give 'em another 24-48 hours and move on to Undeadcow if there's no response. That's well over a week which should be long enough IMHO.

Got my Walking Tall trilogy today. Thanks again to Caligula and Golden Wheels!

JHCA13 has not been on the site since May 5, so that's long enough. Going to go down one more and declare undeadcow prizewinner.

Thanks again for the win, I received Full Moon's The Best of Sex & Gore and Auditions in the mail yesterday.

Just thinking about this yesterday! So excited. I guess I need to get on planning some movies to watch and a prize to sponsor.

I've already replaced my scratched up copy of Puppet Master II, with the Midnight Horror Classics version, so I have that, and I've ordered the Apocalypse 20 movie pack, the warriors 50 movie pack, the martial arts 20 movie pack, and the spaghettie western 16 movie pack, so I am all set, as I have all 9 Puppet Masters to watch now as well.

SethDLH
02-12-13, 11:20 AM
Is that a hint as to what NOT to buy to sponsor? ;)

I've actually got plenty of stuff to watch but I know I won't get through 1/10 of it so I'll pick out enough movies for 2 per day and hope I get through them all. I've got the 44 pack Spaghetti Western (on top of plenty of other SWs) that I still have at least 80% to watch, the 50 movie "Drive-In" pack, a pair of 50 movie Sci-Fi packs among many others.

LOL. No, just showing how excited I am about the challenge that I am already purchasing new material and thinking about deciding what I want to watch for it myself. :D

You're missing 2 films. I'm assuming Puppet Master: The Legacy and Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys. While Legacy was part clip film, it did hit a topic that I've thought about in other films, which was cool.

spoiler alert
Bringing up the fact that all the souls that live in the puppets are actually trapped there, so they can never rest in piece and they resent their master for it.

PM v DT isn't great but if you can get yourself over being hung up about how it connects to the rest of the series, it isn't bad for a lazy Sunday afternoon movie.

While I haven't watched it yet, I just looked at my Puppet Master box set, and I do have Legacy.

There are 11 total (10 Full Moon and 1 Syfy Channel)

Puppet Master
PM 2
PM 3: Toulon's Revenge
PM 4
PM 5
Curse
Retro
Legacy
Vs Demonic Toys (Syfy)
Axis Of Evil
Axis Rising

Thats the order of them. I probably missed some subtitles for earlier parts. Axis Rising is the 10th film in the Full Moon canon. Oh and the series has/had a wiki page that puts them in chronological order since the installments are over the place. I couldn't tell you off hand besides parts 1 and 3 would be the first in the series chronologically.

Chronologically it goes(94.6% sure):
Retro
Puppet Master III
Axis of Evil
Axis Rising
Puppet Master
then the rest of them with Demonic Toys it's own thing.

I thought Rising sucked compared to Evil
