"Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team." Has a nice ring to it!
I’m sure you’ll think of something!
My Guardians of the Galaxy Review:
When I first saw the trailer of GOTG I was not THAT impressed. It looked a little too cheesy and slap stick. But as time went on and I saw more and more I started to get excited. I began to really get interested in a space adventure movie set in the marvel universe.
Well I saw it Saturday morning. It has everything you want in a summer blockbuster: Action, Laughs, and big special effects. I had a fun time watching it and definitely want to see more of this story. Thankfully Director James Gunn is ALREADY working on the sequel seeing how the movie has broken records in sales.
Here’s what I loved: It made me feel like I was watching Firefly, Star Wars, Avengers, and Cowboy Beebop all wrapped into one. I loved the soundtrack and HOW the soundtrack is an essential part of the story. It’s not just random music playing over the movie. They are songs that the characters are hearing in the movie. They are Starlord’s only attachment for his original birthplace.
Here’s what I didn’t like: Lee Pace is a great actor but MAN please keep him out of Comic Book/Fantasy movies. I just don’t think he gets it. He’s always WAY too over the top and it just ruins the performance. Go see Soldier’s Girl or The Fall and he’s brilliant. But in the Hobbit and GOTG I couldn’t stand his theatrical acting.
Also Drax, played by professional wrestler Batista had some of the worst delivery in the film. “But hey he’s a pro wrestler” some might say… not an excuse. Do another take. Get it right. As the movie went on his delivery got soo much better and I had forgotten about it by the end.
Other than those gripes I really enjoyed it. I cannot wait for the sequel and to see how they combine these characters with Avengers etc… in the future!
