Chris the Critic from the Missouri Film Alliance is back with this week's movie previews.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY - An American pilot played by Chris Pratt is the object of a manhunt.  This flick is full of a great cast and fun stuff.  Bradley Cooper is a raccoon, well his voice.  Cooper even channeled  Joe Pesci from GOODFELLAS for this role.  Adam Sandler was considered for this role before Cooper!  Vin Diesel is the voice of a tree named Groot --- two  HUGE salaries where we don't even SEE the actual guys faces.  For those of you huge comic book fans, Robert Downey Jr. WAS suppose to have a cameo in this flick as IRON MAN, as the latest member of the GUARDIANS … but, it didn't all work out.
GET ON UP - The biopic about the life of James Brown.  Chadwick Boseman previously played Jackie Robinson in 42 and while preparing to play the Godfather of soul he practiced dancing for hours and hours a day because he didn't really know how!

LUCY pretty much kicked HERCULES in the rear!

NOAH - Russell Crowe plays a man taking on a mission before a flood cleanses the world.  For a "swords and sandal flick", I guess it's pretty visually spectacular.
THE OTHER WOMAN - This is the Cameron Diaz flick where she, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton get revenge on a cheating dude.  This movie is actually pretty fun, quite hilarious and I thought it was a pretty underrated release considering 2014 has been SO SADLY disappointing! 

The Family Summer Series at The Wehrenberg Campbell 16 is almost over on August 7th!  Each Wednesday & Thursday at 10am, you can see a great movie for JUST ONE-DOLLAR!  Check for details on the weekly show!

Time to make your pick for the outdoor movies at Founders Park!  Tomorrow it's JUMANJI (interesting factoid = this movie is filmed in New Hampshire which is one of the very few states that does NOT have a zoo) & Saturday it's MOONSTRUCK (starring Cher in her Oscar winning performance)!  See for ALL the details and how to get free tix!  With FREE tix, my pick is ALWAYS going to be BOTH movies J.
I love hearing your thoughts on social media.
