Guardians of the Galaxy!

I finally saw this movie last night with some friends and if you haven’t seen it then for the love of all things Marvel, GO SEE IT! drop whatever it is you’re doing and go see this movie. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the movie. Images and dialog keep flitting through my head. I actually giggled out loud while at the grocery store. I mean, any movie that has the line “pelvic sorcery” is an absolute GEM!

***If I ever get to meet Benedict Cumberbatch I will use pelvic sorcery on him. Just sayin***


The movie starts out with an emotional bang and doesn’t let up for one second. The characters were brilliant but what do you expect from such an amazing cast?? Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Benicio Del Toro??? Plus the voices of Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, and Josh Brolin??? Geez, it was a fan girl’s friggin’ dream!!!

The characters are superb, each with their own distinct personalities. I honestly can’t say who my favorite was as I liked them all for different reasons. They were an eclectic mix who actually worked well together once they got over their interstellar differences. Which of course was often met with mayhem and hilarity.

There were loads of laughs and lots of tears, plenty of clapping at several scenes, and even cheering when at the very end. The whole audience got into it which is why I love going to the movies. It’s like you’re part of some secret group that gets the little inside jokes.

And of course no Marvel movie is complete without the little surprises during the credits. I won’t spoil it for you but there were two in this movie. One comes early during the credits and one comes right at the end. Definitely worth the wait!

Can’t wait till the next installment comes out! In the meantime, I’m working on a way to genetically engineer my cat Buddy to be just like Rocky. He would look totally bad ass in a little jumpsuit with weapons 😀

    I would love to see this, but my ears are so bad right now I don’t think I could handle it. You’ll have to watch the great movies for both of us.

    I must be getting old. I only recognized Vin Diesel as one of the stars. Don’t know the other ones.

      I knew Zoe Saldana from the new Star Trek and Bautista from wrestling and Benicio Del Torro from other movies 😀
