Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy ★★★★½

A total, nearly unadulterated blast, from start to finish. Unafraid to be bright and colorful and strange and goofy, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY makes most of the other Marvel movies look positively stodgy in comparison. And I totally wasn't expecting that amazing soundtrack!

James Gunn is obviously one to watch. He wrote the screenplay for the excellent DAWN OF THE DEAD remake back in 2004, and this is his third quality directorial gig following SLITHER and the vastly underrated SUPER. No surprise that he imbues this new film with a healthy spark of cult-influenced eccentricity.
