/Film  2019Winner: ?

No Trivia Yet.

/Film  2018Winner: David Chen

First participation of Kristy.

Jeff, The Unsullied, did not watch the trailer for Disney's Christoper Robin, and thinks it is a happy go lucky family film with Winnie-the-Pooh. Instead it is about an old Robin in desperate need to rediscover the joys of life.

Peter miscalculates the box office potential for Mission Impossible Fallout, while Dave is championing Skyscraper. Kristy's unique pick is Teen Titans Go! To the Movies.

Also the new /Film Daily podcast record their own wager episode for the first time.

Derek Jones created the following poster, showing Chen trying to desperately hang onto his hopes to win the wager:

Also the Man from Tallahassee @CandyAppleFox.com returned this year with another sketch for 2018.

/Film  2017Winner: Devindra Hardawar

It's the year of the i-am-going-with-my-gut-guys Jeff and Germain vs the number guys with their statistics: Dave and Peter. Devindra breaks out from the pack with a bold second half of his list.

Jeff is looking for that Finding Dory Moment with his number one pick of Spider-Man: Homecoming. So sadly he did not chosse Avatar. Maybe next year then.

Everyone does not want Dave to threepeat his win of the wager.

One of the /Filmcast listeners heard the Summer Movie Wager episode and produced the following piece of fan art, which shows everyone as a charachter from their number one movie pick: Peter, Germain and Devindra from Guradians of the Galaxy 2, Jeff is Spiderman and Dave is one of the Minions.
Thanks to The Man from Tallahassee @CandyAppleFox.com!

/Film  2016Winner: David Chen

Scoreboard for 2016 by Paul Baker

First participation of Devindra. Ghostbusters was put back into more theaters for the labor day weekend, that bascially cheated Devindra out of 3rd place.

Dave got 61 points, obtaining more points than any other player before in the history of this wager.

Jeff's number one pick in 2017 will be Avatar, because its cultural relevance alone should propel it again to be first in Box Office.

/Film  2015Winner: David Chen

First official participation of Dave. I say official because it seems he must have been part of the /Film team in 2010. In the Results video of 2010 (at 11m:07s) Jeff says that he beat David Chen.

First and only year in which everyone chose the same movie as number one:
Avengers 2: Age of Ultron.

Dave and Jeff switch horses at the last moment to get in on the action that will be the Fantastic Four movie. To make room for that Dave ditches guys (Entourage) and Jeff ditches girls (Pitch Perfect 2).

Peter seems to have incorreclty calcualted or stated his total points as 37 in the result podcast. His actual total points were 39 for shared second place.

Chappie was not eligable for this year (released 06.03.2015), but it did not matter, because Devindra only first participated the next year.

/Film  2014Winner: Peter Sciretta

Again Jeff, Peter and Germain wagered on.

This year had the curiosity, where the number one movie of that summer (Guardians of the Galaxy) was only picked 7th, 10th and as a dark horse by the players.

/Film  2013Winner: Jeff Cannata

The first year after the Totally Rad Show was no more. Jeff didnt want to let the Summer Movie Wager Tradition die, so together with Peter and Germain the game continued.

I could not yet find the result page or video for that year.

TRS / /Film  2012Winner: Alex Albrecht

First participation of Germain.

According to the /Film players (Peter and Germain) you had to have the 3rd Nolan directed Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises as number one to win - that was not the case.

Total points for Peter stated as 47, should be 45. Maybe Dark Horse considered as 3 points instead of 1.

We have the utmost weirdest thing here with Jeff's list. In the Wager video he states his picks very clearly. There is only one small hickup, where he states Brave as his number 7 at 11m:18s, and at 11m:55s he also puts Brave at 8th and Prometheus at 9th. My approach to resolve this conflict is to only count his first mentioning of Brave at 7th.
He never mentiones a 10th pick in the video. Going only with this list as it is stated in the video, having only 8 movies and 3 dark horses, Jeff made 58 points.
But Jeff messed up his numbering, and thus the stated list was probably not his intended list. He thus awarded himself, not to his best advantage, only 56 points (in Results video at 8m:47s).

Alex had 60 points with only 2 dark horses on his list. His 3rd dark horse that year is unknown to us and also to him.

TRS / /Film  2011Winner: Alex Albrecht

Another year, and again another problem with total points calculations. Dan's total points are stated as 41, but should be 44.

TRS / /Film  2010Winner: Peter Sciretta

First participation of /Film with Peter, Dave and Russ.

The year Alex chose MacGruber as his 3rd highest grossing movie of the summer. In fact it only did 8.5 Million Dollars for around 50th place that summer. In the Results video they say 90th, which is the placement of that film at that time for the overall top film grosses of 2010 - so not limited to the summer.
In comparison: Twilight Eclipse, the number three movie in 2010, made 300 Million Dollars. Watch it in Results video beginning at 7m:54s.

The only year in which two teams for /Film and TRS were formed and scored. The /Film team with Peter, Dave and Russ scored 112 points and TRS with Dan, Jeff and Alex scored 86 points. See also the Result Page at /Film by Adam Quigley for a report of how this years wager went down.

As it was in the year 2008, the stated box office top ten list for that summer in reported results does not really align itself with lists from the usual box-office reporting sites. Thats the reason why the player points over time chart does not match the end result. Of course i need to keep the official end result minus calculation errors. But i have no data to adjust player points over time so that it aligns itself with that odd end result.

TRS  2008Winner: Jeff Cannata

Everything stated in the Results video regarding total points seems to be completely off. Watch the video beginning at the 22m mark.
Scores calculated in the video are: Jeff (36), Dan (29) and Alex (36).
Scores re-calculated by lists are: Jeff (39), Dan (26) and Alex (29).
After Alex calls out results, Dan cautions: "I need to double-check my math."

Also the stated box office top ten list for that summer in the result video does not really align itself with lists from the usual box-office reporting sites.

But i have no data to adjust player points over time so that it aligns itself with that odd end result.

Steve, Editor of TRS, also made a list, which would have topped all others. Not knowing the list, i am not sure about it.

TRS  2007Winner: Dan Trachtenberg

The first year of the Totally Rad Show, where Dan, Alex and Jeff also started to do a Summer Movie Wager. The Rules of this game were lifted from Time Travel Reviews.

The Wager and Result videos are heavily edited and only include snippets of their lists.
Complete lists were posted in the forum of the show at that time. Thanks for Reddit User mudclog for digging these lists up from the web archive.
The scores presented in the result video were correctly calculated and match the re-calculated ones using the complete lists from the forum.

Dave never watched Firefly.
