Due to this casting I have decided to purchase a ticket for this film.

Pratt is farking awesome.
 
2013-02-05 06:23:25 PM  
I'm OK with this.
Chris Pratt is a really talented, dedicated physical presence, in addition to being naturally funny as hell.
If you get the chance, listen to his 'Kevin Pollak's Chat Show' ep from a couple of years ago.  Well worth the time.
 
2013-02-05 06:27:47 PM  
He cleans up well. I am ok with this. 

Wasn't he the brother in that show with Treat Williams a while ago? His character's name was Bright..something like that...

That was hilarious. I also like his repeated attempts to jump the counter at the records office. When it come to physical comedy, the dude is committed.

My initial reaction was that he doesn't really seem to have the super hero look having only seen him in Parks and Recs.
wac.450f.edgecastcdn.net

But as someone said he does clean up into a much more super hero type look.  Though from everything I've seen his face is going to be covered a lot if they don't go all Deadpool with him so maybe it doesn't matter much.

Yeah, going off the character's wiki, he's a great choice. The guy is gold on Parks and Rec post season two.

One, he better not have a stupid Cockney accent like he did in the Avengers cartoon.  Two, more important is who will voice Groot.  I'd vote for Dee Bradley Baker.  Dude can really express emotion with just inflection and tone - see Appa and Momo in the Avatar series.  If anyone can make "I AM GROOT!" sound like it means something different each time, it's him.

You are terribly missing out on one of the best comics Marvel's done in years.  Spiraling out of the incredibly awesome Annihilation and Annihilation: Conquest series that re-ignited the Marvel cosmic setting, Guardians is basically a group of space heroes who are trying to keep the universe from falling apart.  Of course, they're also in WAY over their heads, but they try anyway.  They also work off of a decapitated Celestial head at the edge of the universe, and their crew chief is a talking Russian space dog with telepathy and telekinesis.  And they have a giant tree and a talking raccoon on the team.

The raccoon and the dog do not get along.

Star-Lord is their leader, and he's pretty much a fark-up with no real powers, but he's a pretty good strategist and his heart's in the right place.  He's very much a Mal Reynolds or Han Solo type, so you root for him even when he's badly out-matched.
 
2013-02-05 07:53:56 PM  
He has managed to land roles in Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty, so he's got a lot of acting cred for someone who is normally a comedic actor.
 
2013-02-05 07:54:27 PM  
is there a difference between a "Russian space dog" and a "Russian dog that lives in space"?

Star-Lord's been around since 1976 (although it sounds like he's gotten quite a makeover since when I was reading his adventures in Marvel's '70s anthology books). Ditto Rocket Raccoon.

He had maybe the funniest line every in Parks & Rec.  It was ad-libbed.  After the take, the head writer was cursing because he was pissed he didn't think of it first.

The setup is, Leslie has the flu but is too dedicated to work to go home sick.

Sign me up for the clueless old guy newsletter. I have a stack of GotG comics from the 90's and i have no clue what this nonsense is. 

However, if they put Peter Dinklage in a raccoon suit, i'm in!

Okay, I read the Thanos Imperative a while back and, while I quite liked a lot of the ideas, IMHO the actual execution was pretty shiatty.

It seemed mostly to consist of people pointlessly flying around space, throwing explosions at each other, the explosions had no apparent effect until the plot demanded it, whereupon they suddenly become susceptible to explosions, until the next scene where they grit up because everything happening is super important and the world galaxy universe depends on it and suddenly they're immune to explosions again. Frankly it was like a shiatty anime with Michael Bay in charge of the effects. Also the resolution makes no farking sense whatsoever.

So anyway, given the above, would I actually enjoy any of the earlier GotG stuff, or is it largely the same?

A live action movie would probably be pretty terrible, think about what happened to the Tick. A Nextwave animation, however, could be the most glorious thing in the history of ever.

Greg Ellis was the voice of Rocket Raccoon in Marvel vs Capcom 3 and the most recent Avengers cartoon, maybe they'll just continue on with him?
