Mrs. Beast’s picks for the weekend of April 12 – 14, 2013:
1. 42
2. Scary Movie 5
3. GI Joe
4. Evil Dead
5. The Croods

My picks:

1) 42- Maybe b/c I think its a good story, maybe it’s hype & buzz have been building all week, maybe b/c I can’t make myself pick a 5th part movie #1

2) Scary Movie 5- lets face it, this is critic proof and has a lot of buzz. May very well be #1

3) Evil Dead- I’d be surprised to see this fall fast enough for the Croods to take #3. And who knows? Maybe Scary Movie 5 will bomb….

4) The Croods- almost dead heat w/ G.I. Joe last week, still has the most screens and kids movies have that slower % fall.

5) G. I Joe Retaliation- I’d like to see this one this weekend.
