Nothing but excuses.
Ahhh, a rhetorical question. Didn't realize the Auro experience was that bad in Southern California.

Comment part 2

I caught Lucy a second time at AMC Burbank 16's Prime Theater. The twin Christie Projectors produced a stunning visual image onscreen, coupled with Dolby Atmos. It was quite an experience. Lucy more than holds up on a second viewing and it is both visual and audio candy.

The film got surprisingly positive reviews in the trades:

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/rev...-review-720583

Lucy is set to hit about $30M this weekend, which is surprising given that it was a much less-costly film than the other film opening, Hercules. You could accurately say that Lucy is about to kick Hercules' ass...

Although the BR is up for pre-order, Lucy and Scarlett Johansson is certainly worth seeing on a big screen.

Jesus, I had to do a double-triple take when I saw that Lucy nearly doubled Hercules at the box office. I never in million years saw that coming esp when Hercules is such a biblical figure family movie. What a shocker huh?

Someone posted this pretty funny on IMDB:

"Luc Besson only used 10% of his brain while making this movie" -
