Another GOTG in the Machine
A review of Guardians of the Galaxy (2014).
Guardians of the Galaxy is the latest entry in Marvel's series bed sheets and back packs. This one is about space.
From start to finish Guardians of the Galaxy is a carnival of colors, light, and sound, often used in conjunction, to convey a story about people, space, and space people. Sometimes those people are actually a raccoon. Also sometimes these things blow up, because, if you hadn't noticed, it's Summer.
At points in the story it delivers exactly what you would expect a movie named "Guardians of the Galaxy" would deliver. Sometimes though, in it's running time, it is less than that. Sometimes though, it is more than that. Also sometimes things blow up because, if you hadn't noticed, it's Summer.
Where Guardians of the Galaxy gets interesting is. . .You're not even listening, are you?
You're watching the movie right now. Aren't you?
Come on, guys. This is my job.
UPDATE: I wrote an actual Guardians of the Galaxy review. Read it/get angry with me here.
