  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 05 Aug, 2014

    Expanding the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, it’s exciting in itself to be introduced to a new set of superhero characters. We all love Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America, but this was the perfect time to throw some new faces at us Marvel fans. With an outlaw cowboy space pirate, a green chick, a WWE wrestler, a racoon, and a tree, we couldn’t be happier.

    ★★★★★ Watched 22 Jul, 2014

    I was told beforehand that this was a love it or hate it film. I happen to agree with none of the negative reviews and actually really liked it.

    Firstly, I don't know what everybody is going on about the huge emphasis on rape for. There is a focus, yes, but nothing is ever shown, if it even happens at all, as it is all rather implied. From the sounds of it I thought I was going to be witnessing…
