  1. Menolly’s picks for the weekend of October 26 – 28, 2012:
    1. Paranormal Activity 4
    2. Fun Size
    3. Silent Hill: Revelations
    4. Argo
    5. Taken 2

  2. Of the new movies, I only see one (Cloud Atlas) as capable of taking #1, and two that I don’t even want to risk picking, the tracking on RT is so low…

    1) Argo- that crazy low % drop last week and a (still) higher screen count keeps this #1, I think/hope.

    2) Cloud Atlas- the only one I’ve seen ads for. In fact, I was beginning to wonder where all the movie ads had gone– and then I realized, I’m in Ohio. In a close election year. (Just saw a report: in Columbus, 45 of 45 ads during the hour of news were political. Ouch!) But the buzz on RT is soooo much higher than anything else that I think it’ll do okay, despite the lower screen count (thinking if people do go out, it’ll be to see this.) And I’d really hate it if this bombed; it’s crazy ambitious, and I like to see that.

    3) Silent Hill: Revelation- I think this can take PA4 in its second week…

    4) Paranormal Activity 4- …but it’ll be close, either way.

    5) Hotel Transylvania- ok, 3rd time’s the charm, right? It can’t possibly lose to Taken 2 & burn me three weeks in a row, right? Right?
