Mrs. Beast’s picks for the weekend of January 4 – 6, 2012:
1. The Hobbit
2. Django Unchained
3. Les Miserables
4. Promised Land
5. Texas Chainsaw 3D

1) The Hobbit – could be close
2) Texas Chainsaw 3d – this could easily just squeak by the hobbit to be the number 1, but I’m thinking the little guy is nimble enough to get past old leatherface.
3) Django
4) Les Miserables
5) Parental Guidance
