10 Best things about Guardians of the Galaxy
Going against the norm and waiting until the week after a hit movie was released, I saw the Guardians of the Galaxy during the opening weekend. Wow. WOW. I loved this movie. Marvel once again has introduced a new cast of characters that will likely show up in other franchise films, but has set the stage for another Guardians film. Well, duh. This was announced at Comic-Con last month, so although the film was in the can before the announcement, those Marvel dudes had to know this would be a hit.
The plot is simple: Peter Quill, aka Starlord, steals an orb, not knowing it holds an infinity stone. Yondu (Merle Dixon in blue) wants it as well. Starlord says “no way dude.” Evil dude Ronan wants it, and tries to send Nebula after it, but Gamora goes after Peter and the orb instead. Rocket and Groot want Peter for his bounty price, and before you know it, a fight breaks out over Peter and the magic orb and everyone lands in jail. Once there, Drax the Destroyer joins in the fun and the five decide to keep the orb away from Ronan and Thanos. They are fetched by The Collectors assistant, and once there, The Collector opens the orb to reveal an infinity stone! WOW – pretty. Chaos ensues, the orb/stone changes hands, ultimately, Peter and gang get it back. Because, you know, they have to Guard the Galaxy and all.
So, without further ado, here’s the best shit about Guardians of the Galaxy!
