Weird, funny, and a perfect change of pace.
I’m hooked on a feeling: I’m in love with this movie! Guardians of the Galaxy is the first standalone Marvel movie we have seen in a while, and boy, does it deliver. Right from the beginning, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill, aka Star Lord, sets the funny and carefree tone that continues throughout the movie. This is a great change of pace for the Marvel movies and superhero movies in general which tend to focus on darker themes and varying levels of brooding.
