Guardians of the Galaxy - BR - Well I went in thinking I would not really like the movie, but ended up being pleasantly surprised by this one. I watched it on my "little" 42 in plasma in the family room but the night before my son had some buddies over and they watched it in the theater. I told them I really wanted to see it but they did not even invite me to watch it with them in my OWN theater. Hahaha........from what I heard there was a lot of very potent LFE in the movie. I will say a couple of things. Loved the sound track to the movie, really did not go with the sci-fi vibe of the movie but somehow it totally worked. Loved Rockets character as well as Groot. I don't care what color Zoe Saldana is she is absolutely beautiful and I think she did an excellent job with her character. So not really thinking I would think much of this Marvel creation I was pleasantly surprised. 3.5/5 Maybe even higher if I had watched in my theater.

Into the Storm - DVD Netflix - This was just the opposite for me. I was really looking forward to this one and really thought that I would be totally impressed and thrilled with the film. However this film for me was a complete train wreck. The special effects were top notch but the film was so predictable and all over the place it was just a complete mess. There were not any of the characters that for me were ever developed and the two crazy Jacka$$ knockoffs were completely distracting (and I actually rooted for them to get sucked up into a tornado which predictably happens) and were just completely out of place in the movie. This is not to mention the meteorologist who is along to support and direct the team that for the life of her can't do what meteorologists do unless she is getting live weather reports and updates. Sheesh. Not to mention all of the other inconsistencies like a huge international airport next to a small town, and the entire town being able to fit in a storm shelter in the high school (an absolutely horrendous place to put a storm shelter considering the way most schools are built now and I could go on and on and well you get the idea. Terrible, terrible, terrible. 2/5

But, if the sound of the twisters is loud and powerful with lots of bass...is that good reason enough to spend money just for the hi-res auditory ride?

Well I did forget to mention that I watched this on my little set as well (kids were playing Smash Bros. and hogging MY theater again) so I can't comment on the surround sound/LFE in the movie as my little set is TV only sound. I'm hoping that will change eventually but as it's set up right now surround sound is a little Impractical. So you might be entirely correct as this being a must have for the sound/LFE.
