When it was announced the obscure 80s outer space super hero group the Guardians of the Galaxy would be the first non-sequel Marvel project since “Avengers” many scratched their heads in wonder at what they could possibly have in mind. Then the trailers started to land and many wondered if they could pull it off.

The answer is, more or less. “Guardians of the Galaxy” is a good first effort filled with magnificent vistas, fun set pieces and an outstanding sense of humor, but also... (continued)

  Top five favorite Marvel movies. I've often said that aside from the humor, if not for the soundtrack this would be a big mashup of sci-if tropes that wouldn't make a good big budget movie. The music was perfect for it and saves it for me.

Gamora: It's dangerous and illegal work, suitable only for outlaws.
Peter Quill: Well, I come from a planet of outlaws: Billy the Kid, Bonnie and Clyde, John Stamos.

Rocket Raccoon: Well he don't know talkin' good like me and you, so his vocabulistics is limited to "I" and "am" and "Groot," exclusively in that order.

Rocket Raccoon: Well now I'm standing. Happy? We're all standing now. Bunch of jackasses, standing in a circle.

  Great casting and acting, great soundtrack, very funny. I found the end a little too goofy.

Other than that, this was a pretty great new direction for the MCU. I look forward to more cosmic Marvel.

  Did you know?
Your last quote from Rocket was totally improvised by Bradley Cooper for that scene, it ws left in the final cut because he hit the exactly right tone for that scene!

  Didn't know that but it's one of my favorites from the movie. Also was kinda remenicant of T.V. Pocker tournaments where they go "all-in" and they standup.
