  2. The only thing I'm worried about is how they treat the villains in this one. The villains in the comics were actually quite interesting characters, especially Ronan the Accuser. I hope they don't get caught up in the humour side of it and are seen to be powerful. I think villains is something Marvel has fallen down on throughout their run of films. Thor 2 for example, great actor and great character in Malekith, but somehow he didn't come across as strong enough, especially later in the film.
     
  3. Marvel just released a new extended trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy. It's getting to a point where this film can only disappoint because it looks so enjoyable.
     
  4. I'm not familiar with the Guardians of the Galaxy universe. Also, I'm not sure what to expect from this, sometimes it looks like a comedy and in other scenes it looks like it takes itself too seriously.
     
  5. Read a review earlier saying that if you go with someone to see it the only thing you would argue about after the film was who your favourite character was and how it is one of Marvels best films.

    I really hope this isn't just early hype and that when its released everywhere the good reviews continue!

  6. I never read the comics but I thought it was brilliant. Funny and plenty of action and good actor choices. The sound track was awesome as well.

    I was quite impressed at the complete lack of tedious exposition which is a remarkable accomplishment given that the characters and settings are completely novel to anyone not acquainted with the relevant Marvel comics.

  7. Saw it yesterday. Absolutely loved it, easily the best Marvel movie to date (in my opinion).

    Everything was spot on: The cast, the music, the mix between action and humour
     
  8. I loved it. It was funny, the set pieces were great and it looked gorgeous, visually it's by far the most unique of the Marvel movies. It was also surprisingly emotional at times.

    The best thing about it though was the characters themselves and how each one of them got their moment to shine. Groot and Rocket probably stole the show most of all but even the more potentially dull characters like Drax and Gomorrah managed to endear themselves in their own way.

    The biggest compliment I can pay this film is that it reminded me of Serenity, in my opinion the absolute pinnacle of the genre. I wanted to spend more time with each and every one of the characters by the end of the film and though it didn't take as dark a turn for the climax as Serenity did I still thought Gunn did a great job of making the action revolve around character beats rather than just mindless punching and explosions in much the same way.

    A goofy, self aware space opera that knows exactly what it is and all the better for it. Highly entertaining and recommended
     
  9. Just watched this again. Love it.
     
  10. Watched this again tonight (seen it 3 times now), it is easily Marvel's most unique and entertaining film to date, everything pretty much works and it doesn't lose any of its appeal after multiple viewings :)
