what kind of movies do you like? I think "Inception" looks intriguing. My wife wants to see "Twilight - Eclipse". "Predators" looks like mindless, violent fun. "The Karate Kid" has gotten decent reviews, even though Karate is Japanese and the film takes place in China.
There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
Inception it is. I hadn't even heard of that movie, but watched the trailer and it sounds cool. I didn't start with watching the trailers because sitting through a pile of commercials isn't my idea of fun. Plus sometimes the trailer looks good but it gets tedious. I have seen the trailer for Despicable Me at least three times. The first time it was cute. The third it was tedious. In any case, that is in 3D and my free/rewards ticket is for non-3D. The last few movies I've seen have been 3D kids movies so I'm a little out of movie trailers. I don't generally see many movies in the summer.
My choices are
Despicable Me - meh
Grown Ups - this sounds horrible
Predators - I know I wouldn't like this from it's predecessors
Ramona and Beezus - for little kids
Salt - ???
The Last Airbender - only in 3D, not really a choice
The Sorcerer's Apprentice - I was originally thinking of Sorcerer's Apprentice, but the more times I see the trailer, the more tiresome it sounds. I'm starting to get bored with it without even seeing the movie.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse - I hadn't seen the first to
Toy Story 3 - seen it and only in 3D anyway
Inception - promising
Fred: Karate Kid isn't playing anymore. It's kung fu in the remake which is Chinese, no? (Did I mention I've seen trailers for a bunch of kids movies?)
The Sorcerer's Apprentice originally had something like 7% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes when it first came out. I think it's faring a little better, but still...wow.
Salt is Angelina Jolie as CIA(?) agent and a possible russian double agent.
I don't know what he learns in the movie (I haven't seen it). However, it is CALLED 'The Karate Kid', so I assumed it would be...karate. If he actually learns Kung Fu that may be more authentic to the location, but then the title makes no sense.

Branding, dude. Branding.
It said in the trailer he learns Kung Fu. Maybe he knew Karate from before moving to China?
Sigh. Turns out the choices are more limited as the movie has to be out 13 days. (It didn't say this on the ticket per se - they used another word to mean that.)
My actual choices are:
# Despicable Me - meh
# Grown Ups - this sounds horrible
# The Twilight Saga: Eclipse - I hadn't seen the first two and don't particularly want to jump in now
And Despicable Me was sold out for tonight. I guess I'll go see it tomorrow. I read more reviews and some people said it was funny; especially the parts without the minions. And the trailer was cute the first time, so hoping to enjoy it. If not, I can always leave during the movie.
This is what I get for waiting until the last minute to use a "free" ticket.
In my opinion, the rules are getting quite restrictive now that 1/3 of the movies in the theatre are in 3D.
