So I finally got to watch Guardians of the Galaxy! So it’s all spoilers in this post if you still have yet to see it.
Okay, the first scene is the death of a mother. What is it with movies (especially Disney) killing off mothers? I know it adds drama and emotions and a somewhat goal/guiding rod to the protagonist, but damn, it’s so sad! Agh! Take your mother’s hand, little Peter!! AGH! TT___TT
So I’m basing this movie totally on the movie-verse and without knowledge of the comics. Why the hell was Peter kidnapped??? Did they want to enslave him and sell him off to the highest bidder? I like movie-verses because it makes some things simpler, but sometimes, things just end up not making sense. I think I need to read up on Guardians more (though I’m more of an Avengers and Justice League person).
I have to admit that I love the use of old 80s music in this movie. Come and get your love…
For some reason, Peter reminds me of Captain Kirk. They’re both scoundrels, love women, and have a smartass mouth, lol. Ooo! Or Han Solo as well!
This movie doesn’t really explain how Peter got the title Starlord or how he got his gear.
Ahhhhh! There’s Ronan! …..Or Legolas’s dad, lmao.
And there’s Nebula…..Or Amy Pond.
And Gamora……Or Uhura.
Hahahahaha. I amuse myself.
Yay! Rocket and Groot! I honestly did not know that Groot could only say “I am Groot”. Lol. Does Vin Diesel have a habit of voicing speech-challenged characters? Lol. Remember Iron Giant? 🙂
Is it just me or did the Kree look different in the old 80s/90s X-Men cartoons?
Groot’s movements bother me a bit in this movie. It’s somewhat slow, but then later on fast. Is it the animation? I dunno. I also wonder how movies do full body makeup, like for Gamora or for Orions.
It sure did take the police a long time to get to this whole little fight in a public area.
Glenn Close will always remind me of Cruella De Vil lol.
Is Rocket kind of like Stitch from Lilo and Stitch? He really doesn’t sound like Bradley Cooper.
I don’t like space prisons like this. They let the prisoners govern themselves. I saw the same thing in an episode of Star Trek. It never works out well, for the prisoners or for the government.
You know what bothers me a bit about this movie? I’ve seen most of the scenes already in the trailers. Haha! Maybe I should hold off on watching so many trailers, lest I be attacked by spoilers.
Lol, okay, so on one hand, you have a character with few words, Groot. And then a character with too many words, Drax.
…….hahaha the robotic leg…..hahaha. Rocket is horrible!
This is one of the most hilarious scenes of the movie!!! I mean, look at it! HAHAHAHAHA. Drax is just like “Wtf, does anyone else see this?” Poor, sweet Groot.
Does anyone else relate to Gamora’s sentiments? “I am surrounded by the galaxy’s biggest idiots.” Lmao.
I would like to know more about this Collector fella. He seems like a douche, but not a major baddie. I know he has the space dog and Howard the Duck as captives.
What kind of huge being is the one that the city Knowhere resides in? That is one big monster!
I don’t know how I feel about Gamora and Starlord together. It is cute though.
Poor Rocket. TT__TT Always being belittled for being a tortured experiment. At least Groot cares about him.
Drax calling Ronan to their location has got to be one of the stupidest things ever.
Hahahaha “I can’t believe you had that in your purse!” “It’s not a purse, it’s a knapsack!”
Throughout this whole movie, I’ve questioned Gamora’s motive. Sure, she was taken by Thanos and tortured and changed into an assassin. But how or, I guess, why did she choose to fight back now when she was captured as a child? I guess it’s a when-the-opportunity-presents-itself situation.
Okay, what’s with villains not delivering the last blow to kill their enemies? I mean, Ronan just dumped Drax in the liquid to drown. That gives time for a rescue or recovery. See, villains keep screwing up like this and they will regret it! Lol.
I don’t really understand the dramatics of Peter saving Gamora. Am I heartless? Lol.
Honestly, who didn’t see Ronan taking the orb for himself?
Drax admitting he wasn’t paying attention was hilarious, haha. And Groot eating stuff from off his shoulder lol.
Okay, so I know how dramatic it is that the cops formed a net to push the baddies back, but you just KNOW that it’s gonna blow up and they’re all gonna die! Also, if all of them are doing that, who’s protecting the citizens below???
Groot has beautiful, magically, glowing pollen lol. And at last I see the light…and it’s like the fog has lifted…
Groot looks pretty pleased with himself after killing a bunch of people, lol.
And there goes the police net thing and all those people died.
I don’t understand why Groot had to “die”. I mean, if his extremities grow back, why would him turning his extremities in a shield kill him?
Okay, it was hilarious when Peter distracted Ronan by dancing, but if I was Ronan, I wouldn’t have been so easily distracted hahaha.
I want to know more about Peter’s lineage. Was it his linage that save him? Or the fact that they spread the power of the orb amongst four/five people?
Rocket made me very sad here…. 🙁
This was adorable.
And as always with Marvel movies, there was a bonus scene after the credits.
I don’t understand it at ALL though. Why was Howard the Duck there???
