Think You Can Do Better?

Hey All,
Just thought that this looked kinda' interesting:

Think you can do a better job of picking hit movies than the studios?

Then prove it at Fantasy Moguls.com, a fantasy game for Hollywood movies. Fantasy Moguls is like fantasy football, or other sport fantasy games, but here you draft movies that will be released during the holiday movie season. Instead of touchdowns or homeruns, you get points for your "studio" based on things like box office, review score, "legs" (the term for longevity in the theaters after the initial release) and per-theater average. You can play in a league with your friends or join a public league and make new ones. Perhaps best of all, it's 100% FREE to play.

The spring season starts on February 15th, so make sure to sign up before then and get in on the action.
Become a power broker (at least in your own mind) with Fantasy Moguls.com

Sounds interesting, but I have a feeling it would just depress me.  With sports, your favorite players are generally players that are really good.  But with movies, I'd have to pick pieces of holiday themed garbage that are a shoe in to make a bunch of money.  On one hand, you're happy because you picked Jackass 2 and now you're winning, but on the other hand, that means Jackass 2 is making a lot of money.  Which means there will probably be a Jackass 3.

There's a really nice game called Hollywood Mogul that's been floating around the 'net for years.  The guy's just released the third in the series, and I play it all the time.  It's not free, but it's pretty awesome (though he still needs to fine tune some things).
