MOVIE REVIEW: “Guardians of the Galaxy”

Let me start off by saying, as a fan of “Parks and Recreation,” it was delightful seeing Andy Dwyer in space.

Nah, J/K.

Although there are certainly a good number of goofball moments, Chris Pratt’s performance was a great balance of criminal, hero, dork, and suave muthafucka. His Starlord really rather perfectly captures the qualities of the Everyman.

And then there’s this.

A New Trailer for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ has been released

A new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy has been released:

I like this trailer even better because it gives us a bit more on the characters but also gives us more actions scenes.  Even though I will admit I was a bit disappointed to not to see more comedic moments with Chris Pratt.  At the same time it’s not a comedy but an action movie so it was nice to get an idea of the kind of action that we will be seeing.  It was nice to see more from Rocket Raccoon and Groot, this way we can actually get an idea of their personalities.    Also loving that the female is the assassin, I am a fan of a deadly female.

Here is a synopsis for the movie:

“From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team–the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand–with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.”

I know I will be seeing this in theaters when it come out August 1st, who else will be checking the movie out?

Are you excited for Jurassic World or do you think the franchise should have stopped with Jurassic Park III?
