How pissed would you be if you actually, ya know, stood in line for a midnight showing for hours on end........and then that happened? Which is why I refuse to go to midnight showings. Well, that and the inevitable list of crying babies, and kids because mom and dad couldn't find a babysitter, and assholes yapping on their phone "YEAH! WE'RE HERE!" I just go 4 or 5 days later during the middle of the day when it's farking quiet.

I was skeptical about GoG, but damn if Marvel didn't make a very fun movie. It just works. In many ways it's somehow better than Avengers.

Also post-credits scene - was not expecting that. Like, really?

At least it wasn't Legend of the Guardians (which I thought it was until I saw TV Vinnie's post).

I viewed it Thursday. It's the perfect summer film. A great blend of action and comedy. It's might sound crazy but I would say it's Coopers best performance.

I work 3rd shift, and so I need a morning showing. Opening day on Friday works fine for me, Saturday may have kids, though.

You win the thread.

I've got to say, this does look like the best of the whole "Guardians" series, but I can't figure out the underlying plot that relates "Legend of the Guardians", "Rise of the Guardians" and "Guardians of the Galaxy".

The best that I can tell is that before the Guardians were well known, they were just legends (in the form of owls).  After they were fully discovered and realized they rose up as the stuff of childrens holiday totems.  Finally, they expanded their power into guarding the galaxy, but I haven't seen it yet, so I assume that maybe the post credit scene ties them all together neatly?

I went to a midnight showing for the second Matrix movie. They played the right movie, and it was still a huge disappointment.

Saw Guardians last night and loved it.
Got a real Fifth Element sense of fun from it.

The more I think about it, the more the movie should not have worked. A wrestler in a main role, unknown characters, A director from Troma, Celestials being introduced, a talking raccoon, a goddamn talking tree etc, and yet it was a great movie. Lee Pace as Ronan was also pretty good. That character could have been so easy to get wrong.

Wrong GotG, that's the 'character driven, not plot driven' (writer's words not mine) GotG series.

GotG the movie is based on the sci-fi geek space opera that is Dan and Andy's run on the series, though it's lacking lesbians sadly.

At this point I don't see movies unless it's at the Alamo Drafthouse. Saw Guardians there yesterday and loved it. It lives up to the hype.

For you non-Texan Farkers, the Drafthouse is the best place to watch a movie because not only do they have a strict no talking or texting policy, their beer selection is really good. Plus the preshow is always entertaining and not a barrage of annoying ads.

Gotta be honest, I was more worried bout Thanos than the Celestials (which I didn't expect), but damned if they didn't have some good mystery/fun behind them in dah flick.

We've got two in Virginia (Winchester and Ashburn) so... Alamo.  It's not just for Texas anymore.

guardians has more one-liners than most comedies, more action that most thrillers, and more fun than most kid movies.  and it has one of the best soundtracks youre likely to hear any time soon.

i think avengers is the better film, but GoG is my favorite marvel movie.  theres an element thats far-more endearing (probably due to the the motley crue of misfits vs. a hand-picked selection of super humans/gods), but most of the credit goes to the dialogue.

toward the end of the credits is an absolute wall of names that covers the entirety of the screen for a few seconds - it felt like a war memorial for all the animators who died while making the thing. 

after that, then, well, there was that thing after the credits.

probably going to see it again.

I thought it was pretty good, but uneven. They didn't make very good use of Gamora as a character or Saldana as an actress(the part was just your generic everyday love-interest/team conscience female part and, beyond that really not fitting her from what little I know of Gamora, the galaxy's most notorious Space-Assassin really deserves more action scenes and less getting saved) and having her betray Thanos at the first opportunity was pretty shrug-worthy, some of the humor felt pretty forced(like, here's a laugh line guys. You should laugh here. Please?), and while there are plenty of great, engaging parts in the movie(whenever there's Action), others were ploddy and didn't really work for me(almost all of the "team bonding" scenes; their interactions just didn't feel believable til the very end).

Groot and Drax were really well done start to finish though. Dave Bautista's had a hard time really breaking into marquee roles, and while Drax doesn't get much, he did a great job making what he had believable and entertaining. Groot's animation was consistent and great throughout, and Vin Diesel once again showed his VA chops by somehow managing to bring lots of personality to an incredibly sparse role. In fact, the side and supporting characters were, across the board, pretty polished. The Ravagers, the Xandarians, the Nova Corp, Nebula; all great. They had a lot of world-building to do in a pretty limited amount of time, and I think they managed to do a decent job given their constraints.

Tl;dr: I though it was a good movie but not great, and I'm hoping it'll come back with a super-strong sequel like Cap did now that the cast and crew have gotten their sea legs :)

Towards the end of the credits, they slipped in a little joke. Look for it where they normally have the "No animals were harmed" thing.

Yeah. Ditto all this, and particualrly Lee Pace.

***SPOILERS***


kinda Sad they killed Ronan off as he's a good anti-hero/occasional villain ala Loki, but it really didn't surprise me that they did. Hopefully, Nebula will be filling that sort of recurring role for the GoG movies, because Gillian really hit the marks with her very limited screen time, and it looked to me like she was really having fun getting to play something beyond patting The Doctor on the head and playing out Moffat's creepy and childish mother/wife pseudo-sexual fantasies.

Oh one thing I forgot; I expected it to be the sort of big fight epic it was, but I kinda felt after watching it that a caper-film would have fit the characters a whole lot better. Like, a handful of incarcerated rogues get frog-marched into pulling off some crazy scheme that the Nova Corp, due to its treaty with the Kree, can't officially get behind, Dirty-Dozen style. Not really a complaint since I didn't walk in expecting it to be that, but I hope the crew considers something along those lines down the road, because the whole "motley crew of morally questionable experts, grifting the galaxy's biggest assholes"(sort of a Marvel's Ocean's 11) thing would really work well for these characters.

Up has the most emotionally painful opening of any movie I have ever seen, largely because I wasn't expecting anything like it. Movie about Nazis? By Tarantino? Yeah, some Jews are going to die, and Christopher Waltz did such a great acting job, I was more fascinated by him than anything else, especially with how clearly they telegraphed the way the scene was going to end.

As others have already informed you, they have multiple locations. I'm about 30 minutes from one, and plan to see this movie there, and I live in Virginia.

Closest I ever had to this experience was once when I went to see one of the LotR movies the first part was in French.

I stayed because already had popcorn and most of the rest of the audience left to get a refund thingy.

Between my horrible french and my knowledge of the books I mostly got it and at some point the film switched back to English and I was left with like 10 other people to finish watching the thing.

/This probably only happens in Canada.

I was expecting a decent film.  At least something better than Iron Man 2.  I was amazed at how good GotG ended up being.  They had me from Star Lord's introduction of him dancing through the wasteland.


***SPOILERS***

Also, I really liked how they made it a minor plot point that they have a brand new classic soundtrack for GotG 2 without him necessarily having to visit Earth first.

Mulchpuppy: At least it wasn't Legend of the Guardians (which I thought it was until I saw TV Vinnie's post).

SPOILERS, BOTH COMICS AND MOVIES

I was a little mystified why they changed Quill's origin that way. I guess they don't have the rights to the Badoon. Also, it kind of ruins the "surprise" of who Quill's dad is. And yes, for the funniest movie of the year, that is a depressing opening 5ish minutes.

How the hell does one of the worst WWE wrestlers of the last 10 years steal this movie? How the hell is he the funniest, best actor? That's insane. Great job BOOOOOOtista. And in this case, the movie version of the character is better than the comics version (at least currently). Drax in the comics now is a little boring; in this case, I wholeheartedly agree w/ the practice of making the comics a little bit more like the movies, instead of the other way around.

I agree that Gamora should have been given more to work w/. In the comics, she's scarier, more violent, and more ill tempered than Drax. But the lines about "we're going to be like Kevin Bacon!" and "don't use your pelvic sorcery on me!" were the two best lines in the whole movie.

Rocket and Groot alone would be worth the ticket. Perfect work. They did the FPS camera thing better than Karl Urban in that terrible Doom movie.

There were a lot of neat things in the Collector's room, but I missed some of them. I saw the Dark Elf, Chitauri, and obviously Cosmo and Howard at the end, but apparently I missed a chunk of the broken Bifrost from Thor. Also, they show and confirm that the red Aether and Tesseract were Infinity Gems (Power and Space, if I were guessing), but I still don't know if the blue gem in Loki's staff was the Mind Gem, the one that Von Strucker and Hydra have at the end of Cap 2. (The purple gem in Guardians is the Life gem). Wonder when (snert) we'll see the Time gem, and how they handle the Soul gem (full on Adam Warlock?)

Speaking of, Thanos seems to be lazy and a little incompetent, especially if he handed the Mind gem off to Loki (again, I don't know if it really is the full blown Infinity gem, but it would be consistent w/ the comics). He's lost two, maybe three gems b/c he's delegating all the damn time, and choosing crappy/traitorous delegates at that. Get up off your big purple butt and put the fear of Thanos into these pathetic wretches! If you think so lowly of Ronan, why did you send him after the gem instead of getting if yourself?

Other than that, go see this movie. It's awesome!

I thought the red stone from Thor 2 was the Reality Gem, and this was Power. Is the Life stone a new thing? The 6 from Infinity Gauntlet were Mind, Soul, Time, Space, Power, and Reality.

Also post-credits scene - was not expecting that. Like, really?

I viewed it Thursday. It's the perfect summer film. A great blend of action and comedy. It's might sound crazy but I would say it's Coopers best performance.

It absolutely was. I love his take on Rocket. I was expecting something in between Jar Jar and Tony Stark in a raccoon suit. This is so much better.

Just cause..

Cannot wait to see this movie

Me too. Can't handle crowds though so I'ma wait a week.

K, maybe less than a week.


I saw it last night -- very small crowd, maybe half the theater was filled. It's nice having a bunch of newer theaters and one older, kinda run down theater that most people forget about.

Neeek: Trocadero: SPOILERS, BOTH COMICS AND MOVIES


There were a lot of neat things in the Collector's room, but I missed some of them. I saw the Dark Elf, Chitauri, and obviously Cosmo and Howard at the end, but apparently I missed a chunk of the broken Bifrost from Thor. Also, they show and confirm that the red Aether and Tesseract were Infinity Gems (Power and Space, if I were guessing), but I still don't know if the blue gem in Loki's staff was the Mind Gem, the one that Von Strucker and Hydra have at the end of Cap 2. (The purple gem in Guardians is the Life gem). Wonder when (snert) we'll see the Time gem, and how they handle the Soul gem (full on Adam Warlock?)

I thought the red stone from Thor 2 was the Reality Gem, and this was Power. Is the Life stone a new thing? The 6 from Infinity Gauntlet were Mind, Soul, Time, Space, Power, and Reality.


Nope, you're right. It is weird b/c the red Aether stuff isn't very well defined or shown on screen. It does crazy stuff, but nothing you can really point and say "oh, that's teleporting stuff around, it's the Space gem." Also, they're mucking up the colors. The Tesseract should be purple, and the stone in Guardians should be red. I think the Aether would be yellow, then.

jayphat: How pissed would you be if you actually, ya know, stood in line for a midnight showing for hours on end........and then that happened? Which is why I refuse to go to midnight showings. Well, that and the inevitable list of crying babies, and kids because mom and dad couldn't find a babysitter, and assholes yapping on their phone "YEAH! WE'RE HERE!" I just go 4 or 5 days later during the middle of the day when it's farking quiet.


Last time I went to a midnight showing was the Dark Night Rises in Aurora, Colorado (different theater than the shooting).

Since movie theater security hasn't changed much, I now wait a couple weeks until a movie is less of an enticing target for anyone who decides to outdo Holmes.
