Get some exercise:

Movies :

The football line-up doesn’t look all that exciting so why not go to themovies instead. The last Hunger Games is out, Creed is getting great reviews and there are many others. Rather stay in, Redbox has some decent options you might have missed in theaters: Jurassic Park, Inside Out, etc.
