They’ve saved the galaxy and cleaned up at the box office, breaking a couple records on the way, so now you get to tell us just what you thought of Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel’s latest cinematic effort. If you haven’t seen my 5-star review yet, the cliff notes is that while the movie isn’t 100% perfect, it is the 100% perfect blend of fantastically charming characters, big space adventure, amazing visual wizardry, crazy ideas and more hilarious dialogue than you can shake a racc-, oops, sorry, a furry bipedal character at. All of which combined made for one of the most fun-filled times I’ve had in a cinema in ages.
But we’re not a hivemind society (cue obligatory joke about Apple users), so people will always have different opinions. For example, I read reviews/tweets over the weekend where one person complained that Chris Pratt was too physically big (the reviewer actually said “fat”) in this, another that felt the movie had too much humour and should have been more grim, and also one in which somebody was gravely disappointed at this supposed sci-fi film’s lack of robots.
So what did you think of the film? Did you love it as much as Darryn, who was apparently doing his best impression of the great hero Kevin Bacon as he exited the cinema, or would you have preferred if these Guardians had rather just stayed out of your galaxy?
