Did you head to the theaters yet?! You NEED to this weekend!! I was lucky enough to get to attend a pre-screening of Guardians of the Galaxy a week ago with the hubby. Start to finish was NON-stop. Worth every penny of a ticket and kept me entertained from start to finish.
You start out with Peter Quill (aka Star Lord… and in real life known as Chris Pratt!) as a young boy. His mother dies and shortly after he is… in short… abducted by aliens.
Fast forward about 20 years, you see Peter Quill on an abandoned planet and dive right on in to the 80s music playlist that makes this movie even more fun. Peter Quill dances his way through a heist to still none other than one of the infinity stones (well known in the Marvel Universe), although he doesn’t know it at the time.
I am not going to give you spoilers but will say this was easily the best Marvel film so far. And I know, I say that about all of them but they really do just keep getting better!
You quickly learn that Peter is not the only one that wants this infinity stone. Between Rocket the Raccoon and Groot coming after Peter (for a Bounty!) and Gamora (for the stone), they find themselves in a fight in the middle of town square and all of them land themselves in prison. Where they meet Drax the Destroyer.
Each of them combined make up one of the best groups I’ve seen work together in the Marvel universe. Tons of fun, lots of action and just enough comedy. And don’t forget… the playlist.
Go see it!!! Oh, and just in case you didn’t know…
