8/10: Guardians of the Galaxy
Thursday, August 21, 2014

The Marvel Comics superhero movies are coming thick and fast in the last few years, the trailer for this next adaptation had a humorous approach, of course I saw a more action packed trailer too, so I was looking forward to seeing it, directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). Basically, as a child, following the death of his mother Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) was abducted from Earth by alien pirates called the Ravagers, twenty six years later he has become an outcast, wanting to be known as Star-Lord, and he attempts to steal a mysterious orb. He is intercepted by Korath (Djimon Hounsou), subordinate to fanatical Kree maniac Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) , and after escaping Peter has a bounty put on him by Ravagers leader Yondu Udonta (Slither's Michael Rooker), assassin Gamora (Zoë Saldana) is sent to capture him and the orb. A fight ensues between them, and grabs the attention of two bounty hunters, genetically engineered...

6/10: Very watchable, occasionally very entertaining
Sunday, February 7, 2016

Guardians of the Galaxy" is a successful American movie from 2 years ago and successful is actually quite an understatement. The film made the IMDb top250, got lots of love from audiences and critics, finished no°3 of the year in terms of box office and was nominated for two Academy Awards. The cast includes a handful pretty famous names, but it was especially a breakthrough for Chris Pratt, who was probably only known to fans of "Parks & Recreation" before. The story is a bit similar to "Despicable Me" as we have a criminal here as well who changes sides. Actually, it is not just one criminal, but a whole bunch. Writer and director James Gunn made very smart decisions here by how he chose to make the bad guys look likable. The raccoon and the tree are just cool, but Bautista's character for example only really became evil because of what happened to his family.Speaking of James...

9/10: Just what I needed
Friday, May 21, 2021

Normally in superhero movies, especially in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there is often a certain way that CGI is handled. In the beginning there has to be an introduction that will either show something/someone important that the hero is going to need, or it is going to be something/someone that will come useful in the end. Then in the middle of the movie the superhero is using his/her powers to either test them out or to fight a bad guy (mostly for losing so that it can pay off in the end). And then there is a big CGI fight in the end. That's it. The rest of the movie is just spent talking, doing side quests and occasional comic relief.I had come to observe this when I was bingewatching all the MCU movies after the release of Infinity War. I wanted to watch all the movies so that I could catch up with everyone...

10/10: I AM Amazed
Saturday, March 20, 2021

Guardians of the Galaxy is a pleasantly surprising SyFy thriller for this generation. The film stars Chris Pratt as Peter aka Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, and Dave Bautista as Drax. This all-star cast does an amazing job bringing these characters to life. If you like any of the Marvel Avengers movies you will love the humor and action of this family-friendly film. Peter is a human from planet Earth that has a bounty on his head when Rocket, a talking raccoon that was developed in a lab, and Grout a walking tree come along and try to capture him to collect the bounty on him. In the meantime, Gamora comes along trying to steal the Orb that Peter has in his possession. This group of misfits that end up crossing paths, all at the same time, end up being put into prison...

10/10: JUST LIKE KEVIN BACON
Sunday, November 18, 2018

This film is aimed at the teen/preteen audience but is done well enough so everyone can enjoy it. The movie centers around a group of five "losers" who are after an orb that looks like a baseball size "snitch." I couldn't help but think about other block buster films while watching this one. Our 5 "good guys" are:Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is the main character. As a child he was abducted from Earth right after the death of his mother. He carries with him a Sony Walkman and plays a cassette tape that should have disintegrated long ago. He is a combination of Hans Solo and Kevin Bacon from "Footloose." His playing of classic rock tunes gave me a flashback to "Heavy Metal" as they looked for the orb.Gamora (Zoe Saldana)- works for bad guy Ronan (Lee Pace). She is green like an Orion slave girl and every bit of pretty. She refuses to be an...
