This blog is primarily about books and school. I’ll occasionally post about other things, but I’ve never done a movie review before. I’ll probably never do another. This isn’t even a full review, more of a quick reaction/bit of fun. But I feel like I need to do it.
There’s a reason I’m doing this one. I went to see Guardians of the Galaxy on Friday, after my classes for the semester were over. It would have been fun even if it wasn’t a good movie–I was glad to be out of classes for a few days, and I needed something to celebrate. I would have still enjoyed myself. I went in with moderate expectations.
I was blown away.
Guardians of the Galaxy is the best movie I’ve seen in many years. I may love the Hunger Games movies just as much, but that’s because I love the books. Same with the Lord of the Rings movies. The Avengers came close, but only with the entire universe of super-hero movies behind it. The Game of Thrones TV show is pure awesome, but it’s not really in the same category as a 2-ish hour movie.
If you haven’t seen it yet, do yourself a favor. Go, buy a ticket and watch it. Bring your friends, if you can.
I have never, ever laughed, cried, and cheered so much at the movies before. Guardians of the Galaxy was simply amazing.
