Guardians of the Galaxy  (2014)
James Gunn is an mother flippin’ genius – he has infused an obscure Marvel property,  Guardians of the Galaxy, with his unique brand of humor and comedic tone and created the best space opera to light up theaters since Star Wars. The film is all kinds of awesome and the grue-crew share their favorite moments, their most loved characters and most cherished songs included in the film’s sound track. WE ARE GROOT!

  1. Was pretty clear you guys liked this film, sounded like the best thing since Star Wars! Had to tune out as I plan to see this film and you guys were on it for 70 minutes. Really surprised as I haven’t been too impressed with James Gunn up to this point.

    1. John,

      Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, Guardians of the Galaxy really made our day in a big way – and we kept going and going and going on about it. Didn’t we. Share the love, I suppose. 🙂

      As for James Gunn, I wasn’t sure what we were going to end up with going in (until the trailers, at least). I do enjoy Slither, but it was so different – as was Super. Guardians is so much bigger than both of those.

      Thanks for listening. Hope you enjoyed our recent Life After Beth / Afflicted two-fer on episode 72.
