Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

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 😉

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!

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?

  1. 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!

      • 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…

  2. 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!
