Re-watched this last week when I saw it got added to Netflix. After a second viewing, it still feels just as fun to watch as it did the first time (despite slight annoyances like the stupid materializing/dematerializing helmet and the black gunk on Ronan’s face). I’d say it’s up there as one of my favorite Marvel movies, alongside the first Iron Man, and Ant-Man.
I finally got around to watching Guardians of the Galaxy recently, and I did find it to be a pretty fun movie. I do take issue with people who were describing it as the second coming of sci-fi – it’s not that – but I did have a really good time watching it, enjoying the characters, the chemistry, as well as the general designs of the world. It has a great soundtrack too, and the only thing that bugged me was Star Lord’s “magic hat” – I’m not a big fan in sci-fi films of things that just materialize and dematerialize.
