“Guardians of the Galaxy” or “Firefly/ Star Wars/ A Fun Ride”- my fuckin review

Here is my review for “Guardians of the Galaxy“. Okay so I nothing about the comic book version of this film, or the characters. So I went in blind. The movie stars off with a little boy Peter Quill in the 80’s where his mother is dying of cancer and he is sad as shit. He runs outside and gets beamed up by aliens. Cut to years later and he is a grown up thief in space and stealing shit. He is still a good guy and is just trying to get paid and laid. He eventually he meets up with a raccoon named Rocket (Bradley Cooper), a talking tree named Groot (Vin Diesel) and a green girl named Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and then they all go to jail. Meanwhile this big bad space bitch called Thanos is after them. In space jail they met a prisoner named Drax (Dave Bautista) and they form the Guardians of the Galaxy. Now they are popping off and there are shoot outs, lasers, space battles, love, tears, and music. It’s action packed but in a fun smart ass way. Theses characters seem like real people, and people you would want to get turnt up with. The soundtrack is amazing and all the songs they chose were a perfect fit. This movie is over-the-top, but that is what makes it fun and exciting. It’s not sad ass gritty super heroes sitting around staring all day. It’s heroes who fuck up, laugh, cry and are witty as shit. The Director James Gunn did a great job with this film and I hope he does more of them. Honestly it was a fuckin blast to watch and I want to see it again. You should go out and see this shit in IMAX 3D. It’s worth it. I really do think it’s Marvel’s best movie and remember I knew nothing about this shit when I went in to see it. It was all fresh and fun. So if you love action, laughs, space battles, lasers, memorable characters, great mix tapes, Firefly, and Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope then go see this movie ASAP.

The Trailer:

The Facts:

A. James Gunn directed this film. He also directed  Slither and Super. He wrote Tromeo and JulietScooby-Doo– the movie,  Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed– the movie, and Dawn of the Dead– 2004.

B. The soundtrack was great (not to be confused with the score by Tyler Bates, that was a little generic and forgettable). The soundtrack was like another character in the film. It was that relevant.  The played all these jams loud and proud and not quietly in the background. You really heard them and they were part of the film and not just thrown in. Characters even talk about the mix tape and the music that is on it and even dance to it. I love the Awesome Mix Vol. 1. I hope there is a Vol. 2.

C. Chris Pratt was Peter Quill in this movie and you will dig him on all levels. He is funny and goofy and everyone will fall in love with him. Girls, Guys, Gurlsss, Bros and even Lesbians.

He dances too and any hero who finds time to dance is a good one.

E. Rob Zombie plays the voice of the Ravager Navigator in the movie.

F. Rocket is the bomb and I want a stuffed animal version for my home. What makes this movie great is that there are weird over-the-top characters that are relatable, fun and who you would want to hang out with. Characters are the most important thing of any story ever! I would hang out with this raccoon any day. guardians-of-the-galaxy-rocket G. Groot only has one line that he says over and over again, but he had more character than 95% of the actors I have seen in all movies this year. Sorry Sandra Bullock, a talking wooden tree is more believable than you. I also think it is interesting that the movies with the most believable characters in 2014 are Guardians of the GalaxyDawn of the Planet of the Apes and The Lego Movie. I am being serious. The characters in all these movies seem more real and honest to me emotionally than any other film this fuckin year.

I also hope they sell a dancing toy version of this.tumblr_n9qp9fhXo81r0t68go2_250 guardians-of-the-galaxy-groot-13 H. Zoe Saldana was Gamora in this movie. She was okay but I need more character development for her. She was the only one that I didn’t feel sad for. Gamora should have also been played by Raven-Symoné. Real heroes will make you cry.
