So after what felt like an eternity of waiting for it’s cinematic release a group of fellow nerds and I finally watched Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ and right off the bat I have to say… This movie is easily one of the top 3 projects Marvel has ever executed. I mean I went in with some pretty high expectations, so I was pleasantly surprised when Guardians surpassed all I could have hoped. Though whether or not it is in fact the best Marcel flic ever depends on how it holds up to a re-watch next week.
What really struck me was the sheer amount of talent that Marvel drafted for this movie! And I’m not just talking about our protagonists, but rather, every second character was an A-List, if not popular B-List, player! I mean John C. Riley and Glenn Close as a Nova Officer and Nova Prime (respectively), Come on! It felt like every two-three minutes I was going – “Holy shit it’s that guy” And it wasn’t like they were thrown in willy-nilly either – Each one of them blended seamlessly into what was just one great piece of story-telling.
