  • i don't like how they made drax look so underpowered against ronan. in the comics drax was strong enough to kill thanos. also i thought ronan needed more screen time, but this movie was more about the good guys than the villains. i hope he comes back later as an antihero like he was in the comics. he's just too badass to be offed so abruptly.

  • I thought it was a great movie. The after-credits scene, though...

    I edited the title so now people are warned if there will be spoilers.







    So with that being said...there's this great rumor out there that Marvel may not want to do a lone Hulk movie and may want to add Mark Ruffalo's Hulk to a Guardians of the Galaxy Sequel.

    If you're familiar with Planet Hulk, the idea is that the Hulk is determined too powerful to stay on Earth and must get blasted to space on a rocket/prison. Avengers 2 will end with the Hulk getting blasted into space and that's where Guardians of the Galaxy will pick-up.

  • Saw it yesterday, absolutly loved it! I think its the best movie so far this year, granted I havent seen the new Captain America (I was out of the country at the time and am just waiting for it to come to redbox). I really liked it a lot, I was laughing left and right. It makes me want to break out my original comic books that have been in storage for forever.

    Also I loved the way they did Thanos, I cant wait till he gets all the gems

    That was the main issue I had with the movie as well. Drax and Ronan were pretty much equals in the comics and Ronan treated him like Chancellor treats everyone he hits.

    Other than that it was one of the funnest, well thought out Marvel movies yet. The characters were great, the performances were great, the dialog was great, and the action sequences were great. Can't wait to see it again.

  • Going in knowing virtually nothing about the Guardians I have to admit I was a bit overwhelmed by the movie. I enjoyed it, it was funny as hell & OMG DAT ASS but... I'm just gonna have to watch it again. It was just so much going on I probably won't be able to fully appreciate it till I see it a couple more times. It was like The Avengers but without the benefit of origin stories and some setup. I was borderline annoyed for the first 20 minutes or so (not counting the intro scene) trying to understand everything that was going on. And I had a hard time wrapping my brain around a universe where apparently anything is possible and if it can happen it will happen.

    But it was thoroughly entertaining. Looking forward to seeing it again and definitely looking forward to some, any and all Avengers crossover action.

  • I just watched it for the third time and I noticed something very interesting in the post credit scene. Adam warlock's cocoon, which was in Tivan's collection, was hatched and his body was nowhere to be found. The Howard the duck cameo was just a decoy to distract you from the main point of the scene. Adam warlock is going to be instrumental in the battle against thanos.

    This is the scene with Howard the Duck... where supposedly, this is where Adam Warlock's cocoon use to be.

    :stirthepot:

    I have never said that, nor do I think it. I didn't find Guardians of the Galaxy to be awesome or hilarious; to me, it's more like moderately entertaining and amusing.

    Unlike some around here, however, the fact that it's not the most amazing film ever made isn't reason to crap all over it like some did with Avatar.

  • I saw it on Saturday, was really really good. Had action, humor, I was very entertained, I'll probably watch it several times when it comes out on dvd.

    I don't know if it was the best Marvel movie, I'd probably put Avengers, Iron Man and Winter Soldier above it, but really solid movie. Chris Pratt did a fantastic job.
