August 19, 2014 4:12 pm I was pretty relaxed. And also bored.
August 18, 2014 3:31 pm Yeah, I didn't think he was coming back to write or direct, I thought he was coming back to produce it. They still haven't clarified what his role is going to be, exactly, if anything anymore.
August 13, 2014 5:42 pm Well, of course YOU wouldn't like that scene. :)
August 10, 2014 6:30 pm It's a song that is more popular now than it was at the time of release. The highest point on the U.S. chart it ever reached was #106.
August 10, 2014 5:07 pm Paul definitely didn't say "Micronauts" on the show.
August 10, 2014 5:05 pm That's Ron's very specific musical tastes showing. Those songs were not at all obscure, other than "Cherry Bomb."
August 10, 2014 5:02 pm It definitely looks like Adam Warlock's cocoon: http://www.slashfilm.com/guardians-of-the-galaxy-easter-eggs/
August 10, 2014 5:00 pm Finally got a chance to see the movie AND listen to the show, which was a lot of fun and much like with Josh and the X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST show, I am jealous I was not on it. That having been said, I didn't enjoy the movie as much as the guys on the show did. I liked it, it was entertaining, but I had some problems with it. I felt like it wasn't really a cohesive story, more a series of vignettes. Granted the vignettes were fun and funny (and it was a very funny movie) but I felt like as a whole, there wasn't a strong plot to hold onto. Also, I was really surprised to hear all the praise on the show for Lee Pace (who I love in everything else I've seen him in) who I thought was so over the top as to be Schumacherian. I did a lot of cringing every time he over-emoted, which was most of the time he delivered a line. It was hard to take him seriously as a villain because he was so silly. I thought he was by far the worst bad guy in a Marvel Studios movie. The Collector remains terrible on-screen. The Howard the Duck cameo was a supreme "ugh" moment and I think Ron nailed it on the show about it being all about hubris. Overall, though, I had a lot of fun and that was mostly due to the Guardians themselves, who are all very appealing, especially bouncing off each other. I thought that the best scenes were the ones where they were basically just bickering with each other. Chris Pratt was great. Zoe Saldana was great. Dave Batista was surprisingly great. Bradley Cooper made a fantastic choice with his characterization of Rocket. Vin Diesel was a strong Groot. If I was giving it a letter grade like they did on the show I would probably go with a B-. If I went with my standard Netflix system it would be 3 stars. (I will say this, I liked the characters so much that I am going to seek out the collections of the Abnett and Lanning stuff.)
July 16, 2014 1:23 pm That's interesting because I find Ordway's style to be timeless. But it's art, so...
