In my heart, I really wanted Marvel to strike lightning twice. See I never really read Iron Man but when the movie came out I was blown away. Again with Guardians never read the books. When Marvel put the word out that they were going to do this movie at the time it was a risk. Sure it was a summer smash that I waited to blind buy on Blu-Ray. Maybe that was the wrong thing to do. See this movie did not strike lightning twice for me and I think it is because I did not see it on the big screen.
I love the fact that another horror movie director gets a shot at a big budget movie. James Gunn has come a long way from his Troma days and his first feature "Tromeo and Juliet." and let's not forget "Slither" and the fact that he wrote the new "Dawn of the Dead". So like Sam Rami (Spiderman) before him it is really cool to see all of this do well.

The soundtrack recently went platinum with a mix of 70's and 80's tunes. The big song being "Hooked on a Feeling." This first film soundtrack ever to reach number one without a single original song. It was nominated for 2015 GRAMMY Awards for Best Soundtrack.
In the end, I liked Guardians I just did not love it like all my buddy's. They have seen it more than once some even more. I may sit through it again someday before the sequel hits the big screen.
Starlord sorry I give you...
