Went to see the new Guardians of the Galaxy today. I really enjoyed it. It's a little goofy, but that's okay because goofy works for this crew. Baby Groot was the cutest, but Drax is probably the best solely for his very blunt approach to things. "I can't make a dent in its outside, so I must destroy it from the inside. RAAAAAARGH!" Of course, Rocket had some pretty good lines, too. Really, the scripts were pretty well-written and delivered for the most part (love me some snarky anti-heroes, what can I say?).

It did play rather heavy-handedly with the whole "family" theme, but that's okay. I mean, it's a Disney franchise, so it's going to be heavy-handed with its themes.

I wasn't really expecting the whole thing with Yondu, and I hope that we get more fleshing out of the Ravagers. I mean, they're basically space pirates, but they seem to have a whole war-hero vibe thing going for them.

I loved the look of the Sovereigns and their home world. It was very Metropolis. I was disappointed that the high priestess wasn't called Tima, but, ah well. Honestly, the world designs for this movie were gorgeous - some one really paid attention to pulp sci-fi and the comics to get the aesthetic just right.

There are a couple of movies coming out that I am looking forward to this year. One is the new Thor movie, and the other is the new Blade Runner film. I will, of course, have to rewatch the first Blade Runner to remember what the hell was going on. And then I'll probably have to watch Bubblegum Crisis because that's basically a "meanwhile on the other side of the world" storyline. The trailers for Blade Runner didn't have much on the plot of the new film, but I'm hoping that they'll answer some questions from the first movie from 30-odd years ago. And for the love of all that's gritty and dark, answer whether Dekker is a friggin' Replicant! 30 years of nerd debate hinges on this!
