The month starts off with a galactic bang on Aug. 1 with the release of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. The movie script is quick-witted, star-studded (Chris Pratt! Zoe Saldana! Bradley Cooper's voice!), and it's refreshing to see some new heroes on the big screen. Of course, it's worth going just to see the insane shape Pratt got into for the role, but you'll stay because the movie is ridiculously entertaining.
