Finally got to watch the Guardians of the Galaxy. Yeah, way behind I know, but had to wait for some friends to get time and opportunity for it so I didn't had to go alone. Movies are more fun when watched with others.
Was it all it was hyped up to be? Well, depends on what hype you listened to I guess. It was entertaining, it was very pretty and thankfully didn't take itself too serious while not being a complete comedy. I liked that mix for sure. You learned to care about the characters, some more than the others, but you didn't end up hating it whenever a certain character would pop up on the screen. I kind of had the fear of that with Star-Lord based on the impression I had of him from the trailers. But I did learn to like him in the movie. A flawed man without being nothing but comic relief forced into a leading role as hero because someone thought that would sell. He was actually serious and caring his own way, lived properly up to his flaws and became likable without being annoying in any way.
I was also happy to get to know the other characters better than the first, simple impressions from the trailers and the memes all over the Internet. A bit of a shame so much got spoiled to me long before I could watch it, gifs and memes alone. But that's the dangers of the Internet and I just got to live with that.
The story itself, well, not the perfect plot but I liked the way it was built up and the changing schemes of the characters. I believed the reasons that kept them together long before they shaped an actual friendship and trust. I loved their interactions throughout the movie and the reasons that kept them going through so many things right to the end. I like that, didn't felt so forced as in some movies. There were laughs the right places and enough and well-placed serious moments. Hints of things that were revealed later in the movie and what might be revealed further in future movies. And I sure hope there'll be more soon.
Overally, I had a good experience out of it, I really enjoyed it and have no regrets. It's not that huge epic best thing ever to exist, it just misses that to me. But I still liked it a lot and wouldn't mind watching again. Create your own visitor map!
