Go see Guardians of the Galaxy. This is the coolest, most fun movie I have seen in a long, long time. Totally, awesomely wicked.

And the (highly-subjective) neatest/geekiest part they save 'till the end of the credits.

Might get a chance to see this one in the theaters

Not trying to be a killjoy, but having see the previews on TV, I just don't understand the draw to this film. While I can generally suspend logic and reason to accept movies with aliens and bizarre creatures, I just can't understand the point to having an anthropomorphic raccoon. The mere thought of such a thing just reeks of stupid and kills any curiosity or desire I would ever have to see this movie.

As a disclaimer, I should also point out that I cannot stand the flying kung fu movies like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Plot (or insert clone here) either. My left-brained logical overload just will not let me accept or enjoy the concept of people being able to fly or run on top of corn. I just can't suspend my sense of disbelief to that extent.

I liked it a lot. But my kids are only a few years from when all the movies we saw had animals that talked.

The raccoon was a hell of a lot better than the talking dragon in the last Hobbit movie I saw.

There were two dozen lines that made the whole theater laugh.

Best flick I've seen since Ender's Game. If you haven't seen (or read) that one, you owe it to yourself. Fascinating, thought-provoking movie.

This lady is one of the stars.

I clean forgotted to mention one of the coolest parts of the movie.

On other planets throughout the galaxy, everybody speaks American English. It's only them goobers in other countries on Earth that speak other languages.

They're going to be so surprised when they get to a planet like Xander and nobody speaks French or Swahili or Tagalog! :point:

Aw, it's prolly something as simple as a universal translator implant. The way things are going, that's not a far-fetched as it may have been even five years ago.

This, I believe, wins the Internet for GotG fan art:

While this little number might win the Internet for most-accurate action figure ever…

Finally got to take 7wife7 to see this last night. Made the mistake of going to a 3D IMAX showing (our first time.) Big whoops.

Having already seen it, I was able to pretty much ignore the totally unnecessary layers of tech that made it "3D," but it was so distracting to 7wife7 that it seriously dampened her enthusiasm for the movie.

She liked a lot of it, and said she understood completely why I like it so much, but the 3D stuff really prevented her from getting into the story.

Shoot.

We might try another 3D film sometime, but it won't be an action flick; not even close. Not sure if the IMAX was a separate thing or if all films in that format are 3D. Anyone know?
