Random Thoughts Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

I think I'm the last nerd in Texas to see Guardians of the Galaxy. Or at least one of the last three. It was only me and two other individual nerds in the theater. One was kinda cute, but I digress....

I loved Guardians of the Galaxy. It was 122 minutes, but only felt like a little over an hour. The cast was not exactly A-list, but better than B-list...with the two biggest names providing voices instead of their beautiful faces (Vin Diesel as Groot and Bradley Cooper as Rocket).

My random thoughts during Guardians of the Galaxy:

  • The chick playing Peter's mom is the same chick who plays Lucrezia Donati on Da Vinci's Demons! ( I love when fandoms collide.)

  • Who is Peter Quill's dad?

  • Chris Pratt is adorable.

  • I want the soundtrack. Hmm, the songs are so old, I bet if I go look for the songs individually on Amazon Prime, they will mostly be free, but if I take the lazy route and buy the soundtrack it'll probably be $10 or more. 

  • This popcorn is stale.

  • Michael Rooker's Yondu is really just Intergalactic Merle Dixon.

  • Chris Pratt is hot. 

  • Oh hey! That's Kirk from Gilmore Girls!

  • Even green, Zoe Saldana is gorgeous and I want to hate her but I can't.

  • It's so embarrassing when I get choked up and emotional during comic book movies. 

  • I want a little dancing Groot for my desk.

  • Howard the Duck? I waited for Howard the freaking Duck?

  • When will the sequel be out? There better be a sequel, dammit.

  • Chris Pratt is aborably hot.

  • I thought Lee Pace was in this movie. Holy crap, he was the bad guy. 


Have you seen GotG? What were your random thoughts during the movie?


  1. This is one of the better movie reviews I've read. Random thoughts. I like the idea :) And I really should go see this movie, but am feeling far too lazy and have decided to wait for it to eventually hit Netflix. I'm guessing it'll keep?

  2. Thanks! I can never completely stay tuned in to a movie, no matter how good it is. Anna this one was really good. It will definitely keep if you're in no big hurry. But if your city had an Alamo Draft House theater, they were offering two-for-one tickets this weekend for GotG.
