There's eye candy (a lot), brain food (a bit), an ass-whupping antiheroine (an abundance thereof), and an 89-minute running time that means you can still fit in a Jamie's Italian before bedtime.

Your robot butler is cleaning the house, while you're punching your time at the office, plugging away for a cyborg boss on a sentient OS with the voice of Scarlett Johansson.

These Unusual Suspects were found guilty of being awesome at the box office. In the days leading up to the release of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy I was reading about how well it was tracking with pre-sold tickets and how it had a good shot of narrowly besting the previous August weekend record holder, The Bourne Ultimatum, which opened to $69.3 million in 2007. Expectations were around the $75 million range. But no one ...

Playing in his 14th and final MLB All-Star game tonight, “The Captain” will undoubtedly show very little emotion as reporters, fans, and fellow All-Stars salute his impressive body of work.
