I am fresh out of the theater from seeing Guardians of the Galaxy, and boy do I have some things to say about this film. Guardians is the newest movie for the Marvel Cimimatic Universe, and the MCU’s first real venture into the stars. I guess Asgard and the other realms that are brought up, most heavily in the Thor franchise, are technically interstellar. But Guardians really explores how both beautiful and bat shit crazy the universe can really be in the Marvel comic series. Where Thor and the other movies depict the universe as bleak, ruthless, and depressing, Guardians shows how colorful, vibrant, and even at some times enjoyable traveling among the stars could be. With a little ruthlessness thrown in for good measure.
