Very brief review of "Guardians of the Galaxy"

I finally got around to watching "Guardians of the Galaxy" yesterday, because it finally came out on Blu-Ray. I was insufficiently interested in the movie to see it in a theater, even with all the promotional hype and positive press it received… and now I can see why.

It wasn't really bad, like some other movies of recent years ("Prometheus", "Hunger Games", and so forth), but just… eh. I was very surprised at just how not funny it was, after hearing so much about the wonderful humor in it.

There was exactly one thing which roused a bit of interest in me -- the mention and brief depiction of the Celestials from Marvel's "Eternals" comics.

Count me in as one viewer who hopes there is NOT a "Guardians of the Galaxy"/"Avengers" movie crossover. -- PL

Yeah, this movie was just ok, but nothing as amazing or special as people raved about. I thought it was a fairly average movie, but then again I never read the comics so I guess some of the appeal was seeing comic characters brought to life on the big-screen for the first time ever.

I hate to disagree but I really enjoyed this film. The Ninja Turtle reference is always something I like.

It wasn't great, agreed, but what was done to the Turtles this year, was much worse. We are all awaiting your review patiently.
