Gaurdians of the Galaxy
« on: August 01, 2014, 05:00:00 PM »


Guardians of the Galaxy
In the far reaches of space, an American pilot named Peter Quill finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan.

Stars:
Chris Pratt as Peter Quill
Zoe Saldana as Gamora
Dave Bautista as Drax
Vin Diesel as Groot (voice)
Bradley Cooper as Rocket (voice)

My Thoughts:
This film is actually not scheduled to be released until today. But I guess some areas got to release it early as we were able to get tickets to see this one a little early. I went along with Danae Cassandra, her mother and a bunch of their work friends last night. Now let me start out by saying I never even heard of this until the trailer came out... so there is no way for me to compare this to the comics.... but as a viewer with no prior knowledge what so ever... I have to say I loved every minute of it! And I so can't wait to add the Blu-ray to my collection when released! When I first saw the trailer... I thought wow! that looks stupid! But boy, was I wrong!

This is not a film if you are looking for some deep philosophical story-telling. This really is no more then a hilarious (yes I found it extremely funny!), fun, action packed sci-fi. It is a leave your brain at the door good time.... like all comic book films should be, IMHO.  Rocket, the smart-ass intelligent weapon wielding raccoon stole the show! I absolutely loved that little guy! He was definitely my favorite character. Other then him I liked Groot... the living plant creature that hung around with Rocket.

If you get the chance you really should see this one on the big screen. What with me being blind in one eye... I couldn't see the 3D film (Thankfully the gang was going to see the 2D version anyway!)... so can't comment on if it worth seeing in 3D either. But I definitely feel this one is worth the time put in to watch it. Even with it being up over 2hrs! Though, you wouldn't know it when watching it. The pace is so good in this film that the time just seemed to fly by!

My Rating:

I saw this yesterday and loved it.  I did post about it on my movie blog...I need to write about it - and some other movies I've seen in theater - here.
