So as explained previously, we are again playing a seeded tournament-style elimination game amongst each of the US domestic box office champion movies from the last 32 years, but this time with all-female judges. Seeding was done via Rotten Tomatoes scores, with ties broken with Metacritic scores.

Today is the end of me being 47 years old. I’ve been writing all year in one way or the other about how 47 is my favorite number, and now we’re here at the end of the year and all I can wonder is, did I actually do justice to this iconic moment in my life? After all, I don’t get to go back and do it again.
Can I, indeed, think of 47 things I did or experienced this year that made the year notable or cool?
