I will attempt to make this more of a review of Guardians of the Galaxy and not a Chris Pratt appreciation post.
I'm not really one for movies derived from comic books but GotG had a much different vibe than I expected. It was filled with snarky comments and clever puns that was great comic relief from the action.
All of the characters had lovable qualities which is really what made the movie for me.
First of all Groot. Probably Vin Deisels best piece of work. Then baby Groot?? *swoons*
Zoe Saldana, beautiful, talented and terrifying at the same time. And for some reason always painted.
Bradley Cooper has never been cuter than when he is portraying a raccoon.
Dave Bautista was huge and sexy..and seemed sort of like an add on. Drax's character didn't make very much sense to me but at the same time I'm not versed in any Marvel comic books or story lines.
I have had a thing for Chris Pratt since like 2011 and it's so crazy to me that he is now a huge star. The only complaint I have about the movie is that Starlord seemed suspiciously similar to a certain Andy Dwyer. Same sense of humor and quirkiness. I would love to see Chris branch out and explore different styles of acting. I'd love to see more "Zero Dark Thirty" Pratt. But I digress.
I would definitely reccommend Guardians of the Galaxy if you are into superhero movies. If not, it's a great flick to have on the in the background of other activities you are partaking in.
