Guardians, Movie Review!

Yep, the above pic looks like it has absolutely nothing to do with “Guardians of the Galaxy”, right?  Well, it’s one of the pics that came up when I typed “Guardians of the Galaxy” into the Google Image search engine, so there….

Yeah, I know.  I usually don’t post on Monday nights, especially on a holiday weekend, but this was special.  Two friends and I decided to attend a movie that we hoped we would all like.  One friend does not like the bad violence, so we opted for “Guardians of the Galaxy”.  I knew we would be okay when I saw how many kids were there as well as entire families.  The theater was not packed, but it was full.

The crowd (normally, I don’t like crowds when I go to a show) added a lot to the movie this time.  It all took me back to “Star Wars” in the 70’s.  That’s right, I went to see it when I was ONE (okay, older, high school is almost like being one).  I actually went to see “Star Wars” (the original episode, first one out, was, ahhh, episode 4?) three times the first week it hit the theaters.  Dad, if I remember correctly, was upset when I went both the first and second days (with different friends).  I believe I took my first wife (during college) to see it when they brought it back for a repeat showing a year or so later.  Then I bought the “tape” of it (still have the VCR Tape of those 3 episodes).

Why do I tell you about “Star Wars”?  Well, “Guardians” is a lot like “Star Wars”, but I and my friends decided it was even better (not better than “Star Trek” though, NO).  So, I give it 4.75 of 5.  Hard, really hard, to give anything a perfect 5, but that’s awfully close ( A-, almost A).

So, if you want something that is sweet, fun for all, funny, exciting, and just Star Warsy great, you got it in “Guardians”.
