Hi there, if you've dropped by recently you may have noticed that this blog has undergone a makeover and now has a shiny new layout. The tabs are still undergoing a little bit of adjustment (so indecisive!) and if you want to read the 'about me' section, that's really just too bad... haha Anyhow, I just wanted to write about something a little nerdy in the meantime.
I am not a huge fan of super hero movies. Some I like a lot more than others, but in general, it probably won't be my idea to go see one or rent one. It's just not my thing.
And... I can honestly tell you... that this movie was absolutely amazing.
I was so surprised how into it I was. I was riveted. And I would honestly go see it again, buy the soundtrack and eventually the DVD. :)
For anyone who is curious: It is sort of a companion to the Avengers, but it is about a human who is taken up into space and who works as a scavenger selling valuable items. Through a series of events he bands together with four other misfits for a whirlwind adventure.
What you actually need to know:
Chris Pratt is hilarious and super good-looking. So much of his charm comes from his humor... which is so refreshing in a 'super hero'. He's still got the troubled past, but he isn't so serious. (plus the movie gives me Everwood flashbacks! Anyone else? )
Zoe Sandala will make you want to paint your skin green for Halloween. I already liked her, but she's just really awesome in action roles.
I think I can safely say, seeing this movie can cross off the item on my Summer Bucket List 'Do Something Unexpected'.
Have you seen Guardians of the Galaxy? What did you think?
