August Movies which I am super late on

Guardians of the Galaxy: this movie hit all of my sweet spots. Goofy family of choice? Check.  Females with their own character arcs and motivations? check.  Big guys with heart? check.  Scoundrel with a heart of gold? check and double check.  Great music, great effects, just a wonderful movie.  a 7. 

Inside Llewyn Davis: kinda depressing.  great music.  B liked it more than i did i think.  a 5.

Captain Phillips: again, kinda depressing.  The "bad guys" aren't particularly bad guys.  very suspenseful for a movie where you know the hero lives.  Not necessarily one I'd want to watch again but worth seeing.  a 5.

Only Lovers Left Alive:  loved it! I put this in our Netflix queue and bumped it to the top.  B asked what it was and I replied "a vampire movie with Loki in it".  We started watching it and about 20 minutes in B stopped the movie and said "I'm really liking this.  I thought it was going to be some Twilight crap but it's really good!".  :)  It is a dark movie, both in tone and in color.  Adam is a vampire living in Detroit who spends his time making music and keeping up his off-the-grid house.  Eve lives in Tangier and comes to visit when she realizes Adam is very depressed.  It's a very moody film but wonderful.  you should so see it.  a 7.
