We finally got a chance to get out of the house and go to the movie theater for the first time in weeks. (Months?)

We went to see Guardians of the Galaxy. I've never read the comic it was based on, and my wife's interest in it was primarily watching a talking raccoon, but it was delightfully entertaining! Nice work, Marvel Studios!

I expect that we're going to get out once or twice more this week for some movies...what would people suggest we see, and why?

I've been trying to make up my mind about Lucy. Whether or not to see it, specifically.

From what I've heard, I think that's one that I might be willing to watch, but not at theater prices, so...Netflix.

I've never even seen a trailer or commercial for that movie. I wonder if it's a limited release for the time being.

Which movie? Guardians of the Galaxy? Or Lucy?

Wow. There's been massive commercial attention to both movies here. Guardians had a $94 million opening; you HAD to have had commercials there. You're just not seeing them.

I just looked it up and they're both playing in our area. I guess I haven't been paying attention.

Not much help here. The only movie I have seen recently that is still in theaters is "Guardians of the Galaxy".
I am interested in the "Lucy", if for no other reason than to see how the execute the concept of the plot.
"Expendables 3" looks like it could be as fun as the first two. But then, the only thing I remember from the first two is that they were fun action flicks. Not much to chew on.
I enjoy bio-pics, so "Get On Up" is something I would see once it was on my Amazon Prime. Don't generally see those in theaters though as I am the only one in my circle (that I know of) that enjoys those. I also like the music.
My last interest is "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes". I enjoyed "Rise of the Planet of the Apes", but again, not sure I would go to the theater to see it. Decent plot for the last one, but I am not a fan of James Franco, and I thought his character could have been better developed.

I think that Expendables 3 is also one that I'm putting on the Netflix list. I found the first one tolerable, and the second one much less so. I think that Reds deals with this whole topic much better, if you haven't seen it, or its sequel. With Helen Mirren, Bruce Willis, John Malkovich. Pretty solidly good rentals at this point.
