The only one I might want to see in a theater is Night at the Museum (and isn't that a strange synopsis?). The Boys looks interesting, and I like the music, but I'll wait to see it on DVD, if I decide to see it. I bet The Boys has a great soundtrack, though!

I've been looking forward to Terminator but I'm hearing it's getting not-so-good reviews! Too bad!

I want to see Terminator just because I've seen them all.
I enjoyed (way more than I thought I would) the first Night at the Museum so I'm hoping this one is just as good.

I haven't even heard of the other movies.

Terminator and Night At The Museum.

Terminator, because it was filmed in my state. I've already recognized sites from just the previews.

Night At The Museum, because the first one was a very enjoyable family movie. I'm not so certain I'll like this one, based on the previews I've seen, but I'll reserve judgment until I've actually seen it.
