    Planning to see a movie tomorrow, there's 3 things currently out that I want to see, Boss Baby, Ghost in the Shell and Smurfs: The Lost Village, I don't have time to see all 3 in one day, so help me decide which one?

    Vote in the Poll and discuss.

    I'm going to say Ghost in the Shell - mainly because I've heard bad reviews regarding Boss Baby and after the first two Smurfs movies I'll wait to see what people have to say about this one.

    Personally I wouldn't watch any of them, but if I had to choose I'd go with Ghost in the Shell.

    Boss Baby frankly looks awful, I've never liked The Smurfs and I didn't like the original Ghost in the Shell. My sister is a huge Ghost in the Shell fan, and she was incredibly sceptical about the new film (especially given the casting..) but she went and saw it on release, and said it was pretty good.

    "Planning to see a movie tomorrow," reads as both ironic and funny to me.

    Picking a movie can frustrate me so completely I am exhausted before one is selected.

    The variables of who wants to see what, reviews, schedules, routes, traffic, the expense...
    Or, if streaming at home: content propriety, who wants what, who is triggered by certain themes...

    I hope you found a great show that you enjoyed, Rich.

    As for me, I let others pick and join them for a time to be politely present and then go read, read as they view, or simply excuse myself and go read.

    I remember enjoying movies so much and am uncertain why now seeing one feels like such an investment of energy and time.

    I wouldn't see any of them. I follow movies, and I know they all have had bad reviews. See something else. (Have you seen Logan yet? I've seen it. It's really good. It might be the best X-Men movie ever.)

    Logan, was superb. Dark, relentless, and a fitting end for the antihero.

    I have to agree with the first part of this, all three movies are contenders for something you should wait until they're on tv or netflix before seeing as they won't be worth the ticket price. I'd see what else is on or put the money aside to go towards a game or something in the future.

    Rotten Tomatoes gave all of them nominal "meh" ratings.

    Smurfs: 39%
    Ghost in the Shell: 46%
    Boss Baby: 53%

    Today I'm seeing 'Get Out' with a friend in the early evening and then 'Life' with my dad in the late evening. Don't normally do 2 films in a day, but unlike yours these both have good reviews (sadly the reviews are often but not always right).
