Hello! This is my first post for the “What We’re Watching” section. You can usually find me writing the Weekly Round-up, but Teaira and I are going to be tag teaming these two sections together now.

Movies I’m looking forward to:

Guardians of the Galaxy
I’m not a big Sci-Fy person (is that even how you spell it? Sci-Fi? Science Fiction?) but let me tell you: this star-studded flick sure has my attention. This summer’s box office has been somewhat lackluster aside from the occasional blockbuster such as Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Anything Chris Pratt does is golden, but take note- you’ll see him drastically different than how we’ve grown to love him as adorably goofy in Parks & Recreation (and Everwood… anyone?). I’m also really excited to see a lot of ass-kicking by Zoe Saldana and crew. From action to laughter, it looks like it’s going to be a pretty awesome ride.

What We're Watching

Get on Up
History and music buffs will find an exciting combo in the new film Get on Up chronicling the rise of music sensation James Brown. I loved Chadwick Boseman’s portrayal of Jackie Robinson in 42 and I’m full of anticipation to see him transform on screen into another icon.

Behaving Badly
Meh. I don’t know how I feel about this yet. Moving along…
