When Jay suggested seeing, The Guardians of the Galaxy, I thought it might be a silly summer flick for children. Wow, how wrong I was!
This movie proved to be a retro blast back to action / space movies of the 70's and 80's. I mean even this soundtrack was played from cassette! It was aimed most directly at people our age, or perhaps at those with a love of the genres which included characters such as Han Solo, with a little Indie thrown in for good measure. I guess Chewie has been replaced by a tree and raccoon for this era. There were many graceful, iconic references to earlier sci-fi movies hidden in the scenes. Yet, the things which can be done with 3D CGI nowadays added a great deal of entertainment.
Who even knew that the Landmark Cinemas were running AM shows during the summer? This was a very nice way to spend part of the morning. See it. If any of the other films mentioned here are / were favourites, see it. I'm awaiting the next installment.
