Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy ★★½

The Letterbox'd Guardians of the Galaxy house party is already well under way by the time I turn up. From outside I can see you all dancing and having fun, smiling and doing funny impressions of Groot and Rocket. It's a great party. Everybody's drunk on James Gunn's Marvel gin and i'm stood outside stone cold fucking sober and wishing I was in a better mood.

I think about ringing the doorbell but decide not to - i'd only bring down everybody's good mood anyway. I'd be that guy, Mr Party Pooper moping in the corner drinking herbal tea and counting the ceiling tiles.

So I walk away sighing with my 2 and a half stars stuffed into my back pocket. I turn on my ipod to hear 'Ooh Child', one of my favourite songs of all time and leave - hoping I'll get to ring that bell by the time Whedon's Avengers 2 shindig comes around.
