Guardians of the Galaxy

Childish BS, what a crock of shit.

A ragtag bunch of sociopaths turns out to have feelings, at least until the film ends and status quo yanks them back to their stereotype.

  • The orphan who pulled himself by his own bootstraps is the leader, and potential Aedipus, a king incognito.

  • The Chick is just that, allegedly a living weapon that does a lot of damsel in distress scenes. Just a hot green babe to hang sexy dresses on and stop the leader from being a sexual deviant.

  • The furry character is a mix of any Over the Hedge animal, Gretchen from Recess and La Femme Nikita. With a touch of Family Guy humour. Tastes like coffee with smoked salmon.

  • A tree “played” by Vin Diesel, who consists of a basic transfer of wealth to him, since it has literally two unique lines in the film.

  • The ex wrestler playing a very eloquent sociopath, prone to murderous rages. Bonus points for the irony, but that’s about it.

The badguys are just identical orcs, an there are some Uruk-Hai sprinkled around it. Cannon fodder.

Lee Pace ignores the memo and makes every line as the Shakespearean climax of an hitherto unknown play.


This is my place for ramblings about sequences of images that exploit the human visual limitation know as persistence of vision.
