Guardians of the Galaxy - huge fun! Rocket and Groot are my new favorite film duo. I like the bantering dialogue and the sense of humor - especially the hero / villain confrontation at the climax. I'm already looking forward to the sequel.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes - perhaps a little grandiose at the end, but enjoyable, with a nicely even-handed portrayal of both apes and humans.
Begin Again - feel-good music-centric story with not the romance you expect. I probably need to own this one.
A Hard Days Night - the classic Beatles flick. Music, obviously, and a kind of Marx Brothers vibe. I'd never seen the movie, but I'm glad Netflix delivered it.
Thinking of watching movies at the cinema versus at home...
Am I the only one who hates having to buy movie tickets way ahead and pre-select seats in order to be sure you can even get in? Here in Dallas at the art-house Magnolia Theater, at the Alamo Drafthouse, and often at Studio Movie Grill it's almost impossible to just spontaneously go to the movies and get a decent seat or get in at all... and not just for the just-released "hot" film either.
