Choose the correct option
She likes the cinema too much.
She likes the cinema very much.

Use very much instead of much for greater emphasis. Too much denotes an excessive quantity or degree: She ate too much, and felt ill. 

Next
Last night I went to bed late.
Last night I went to bed lately.

The opposite of early is late, not lately. Lately means in recent times: I haven't been there lately.

Next
He's a much strong man.
He's a very strong man.
He's very stronger than I am.
He's much stronger than I am

Use very with adjectives and adverbs in the positive, and with present participles used as adjectives like interesting. Use much with comparatives.

Next
I hear that he's not so rich.
I hear that he's not very rich.

We can't use not so in the sense of not very. The expression He's not so rich implies a comparison: He's not so rich as you are.

Next
The messenger will arrive just now.
The messenger will arrive presently.

If we are speaking of a near and immediate future time, we must use presently, immediately, in a minute, or soon. Just now refers to present past time, and not to future time: He's not at home just now (= at this moment). He left just now (= a little time ago).
