.... we're the Guardians of the Galaxy!'
*plot spoiler free post follows, but not funny spoiler free*
Awesome, simply awesome movie. I felt like a little kid going to see Star Wars when it was fresh and new(okay technically it was Return of the Jedi). Saw it with friends, will see it again with eldest cause he flubbed his chance with some personal issues, namely slacking on chores. I can't reward him with a movie if he can't show me the responsibility of cleaning his room without hiding clothes behind the dresser and under his little brothers bed *sigh*. Back to the movie, I think I'm the only one who said quite audibly(whoops) "Uhh.. oh shit Drax has a gun!" I liked Drax, he was simple, not as simple as Groot() but he wasn't complex either. Groot... wow... loved him to. Rocket, Star Lord, and Gamora felt like a tri-fecta of characters akin to Luke, Leia and Han to me. A lot of the write-ups and reviews before release said Rocket was the soul of the team... they were not wrong! The trailer scene with Rocket going "oh yeah" when he gets his hand on a gun, that right there nails him perfectly!
Next movie up is one my daughter has been bugging me about for weeks now.... Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I had to take her to Transformers 4 as well.... gods I think she has a thing for Michael Bay movies
