Anyway, for what it’s worth, I had picked Escape From Tomorrow like BD that week. for my indie pick. a little late now, but just wanted to say….

Mrs. Beast’s picks for the weekend of October 25 – 27, 2013:
1. Gravity
2. Bad Grandpa
3. Counselor
4. Captain Phillips
5, Carrie

My picks for this weekend

1) Bad Grandpa – Time to bring those astronauts down with some Jackass comedy
2) Gravity – may no longer be number one, but it’s not going far.
3) The Counselor – I’ve seen next to no ads and what I have seen doesn’t make me want to see it. Not a good sign.
4) Captain Phillips
5) Carrie – pretty scary… how fast it’s going to drop…
