After over a month of seeing Guardians of the Galaxy, I’m FINALLY finishing up what I started.
Its weird that I didn’t do this sooner because for one, my movie experience was pretty peculiar.
Not quite as memorable as the whole dog in a theatre nudging on my chair annoying as when I saw Gravity, I sat next to a very peculiar guy with his girlfriend who not only walked past us countless times (we prefer aisle seats) before the movie started, he finally sat down and started answering to my sarcastic comments that I was saying to my boyfriend in the previews. It was a bit weird because I don’t really mean to interact with strangers. Movies are like my little bubble. So, yes, as I’ve thanked Cineplex before, I thank them again for having armrests that go up so I could scoot closer to my boyfriend 😉
Plus, we were in a smart crowd and I wanted to high five the (approximately) 80% that stayed for the after credits scene. FINALLY, people are getting it 😉
Director: James Gunn
Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan
I’ve taken so long to write this up that I don’t really think that I can add anymore than everyone has already said. Guardians of the Galaxy is an awesome movie and it was so much fun. If there’s anything I would say is that I rarely find the villains of these team superhero movies to be really villainous. Thats the only thing really. Granted, the appearance of Ronan is a lot creepier than say Loki in The Avengers. Yes, I had issues with Loki but thats because I hadn’t seen Thor so I didn’t know who he was. I appreciated him more after I caught up with the Marvel movies that came out before The Avengers. Right now, our focus is on this new team, Guardians of the Galaxy. Point is, I had a lot of fun with this one! 🙂
Normally, here’s where I’ll start writing the review but this time, I’m going to approach this in a different way: a list of what I liked about the movie, which is EVERYTHING!
TEAM AND CHEMISTRY (plus a hint of their humor)
80s MIX TAPE AND MUSIC
STAR LORD/PETER QUILL
ROCKET WITH GUNS/Groot & Rocket Bromance
There you go! Just 5 short and quick points about what I loved about the movie. There are probably a few other ones but off the top of my head and to get this out of the way 😉
The last is my fave. Groot is an amazing character because c’mon, he had 3 words to say through the entire movie over and over again and different intonations gave it a different feeling. My fave part was where he was having a conversation with Rocket and even though all he said was “I am Groot”, Rocket totally got what he was saying (or maybe he was just pretending?).
Either way, I love it! 🙂
What are your thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy? Is there something else that you liked?

I fully agree with you on this. It was a lot of fun. I liked the cheimstry that Groot had with Rocket. I could see them in their own movie. Great review
If they have their own movie, I’d be first in line! Haha!
Great review Kim. One of the reasons I hate going to the movie theater, as much as I love the experience of seeing movies on the big screen, I hate the people that go and ruin it for the rest of us. So annoying! I loved this movie too!
Haha! Seriously, right? People should learn movie going etiquette 😉 No pets and no engaging in other’s conversations should be the top of the list among the kicking the seat in front of you, etc 😉
Yes totally! No texting, no talking loud, no laughing right in your ear. When I went to see Budapest Hotel I almost killed the guy behind me he literally laughed so loud in my ear because it was an old movie theater so he really was close, like laughing and saying comments through whole movie. DUDE shut up!!!!!! hahaha
HAHA! Yeah, yesterday at The Maze Runner, it reminded me why I never go to cheapy Tuesdays because teenagers all around me and these teenage girls were all laughing at random stuff, like when the boys are saving another guy and running from danger. I was so confused by what they found funny…
OH NO! I remember seeing Twilight part 3 I think at the theaters with teenagers. It was horrible! They loved and were dying for Edward. I didn’t get it! YAY Going to run over to your blog and check out the review.
The movie was so much fun that when I did get the chance to see it again, I couldn’t help but just love and pay attention to it even more. Good review.

Thanks Dan! 🙂 It was absolutely fun and I can’t wait to see it again when I get the chance.
I know what you mean when you wrote about being in your own bubble at the cinema … I’m exactly the same! Great review too!

Thanks! I think most of us movie lovers love that bubble we’re in when enjoying a movie at the theatres 😉 It comes with our passion for it 🙂
I’ve been dying to watch this! Every time I want to go see it, something comes up. All my friends have seen it too and tease asking me when will I go. The story sounds amazing and the cg characters look awesome. I can’t wait!
Its definitely one great for seeing at theatres. Hopefully you’ll get to see it soon 🙂
I cannot wait for the sequel.

Yup, me too! 🙂
I really need to see this. Nice post.
It would have been funny if that guy had lifted his arm rest and scooted closer to you! 🙂
That would have been weird and there would have been some unpleasant outcomes. Like either his girl giving him lots of crap or me or my boyfriend punching him in the face….
