Menolly’s picks for the weekend of March 29 – 31, 2013:
1. The Croods
2. The Host
3. Olympus Has Fallen
4. The Call
5. GI Joe: Retaliation

Yoooo `Joe!

1) GIJoe Retaliation – Going to see this at a premium movie theater tonight (beer!) should be fun
2) The ‘Croods – reviews have been good so people will probably keep saying.
3) Tyler Perry’s Temptation – The Perry zombies will flock to this movie this weekend…
4) The Host – See a lot of Ads for this, but I’m thinking the Twilight fans aren’t going to to swell around this.
5) Olympus has fallen – falls down the charts. fast.

My picks (-or- ditto Father Beast)

1) G.I. Joe: Retaliation- Yo Joe? No duh. Really liked last one, hoping this one is good as well.

2) The Croods- good word of mouth means a slower fall. Plus: kid’s movie.

3) The Host- this could tank. But I think, as a first entry, it has enough good will from Meyer fans to get at least 3 or 4.

4) Olympus Has Fallen- The Joes will hit this one, but it’s better than expected opening (finally Gerard Butler) will keep it in the top 5.

5) Temptation- yes, Tyler Perry, but against his usual grain, and not a great number of screens. Still, the week’s wild card.
