Is anyone else hyped for this movie? I've been riding the hype train for two years now and it's finally culminating at the premier tomorrow night.

For those of you who need a bit of catching up or clarification, Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel Studios' latest film, based on a somewhat obscure team of misfits who save the universe from shit guys like the Avengers couldn't bother to handle. While sometimes compared to them these days, they're a very distinct team who are a far cry from "Avengers in space". The comic team has been around in some form since 1969, though the version being used in the film formed in 2008 and has a very different flavor, owing to its tongue-in-cheek dialogue and storytelling.

A trailer for those who haven't seen it.

Well, I can't say I'm excited, but I've never heard of it before the movie trailers started.  :-\

On the plus side... gun-wielding raccoon. That's actually pretty tough not to at least be curious about. XD


"I am the bone of my sword
 Steel is my body and fire is my blood
 I have created over a thousand blades
 Unknown to Death, Nor known to Life
 Have withstood pain to create many weapons
 Yet, those hands will never hold anything
 So as I pray, Unlimited Blade Works."

I've heard its a bastardization of the comic book. Just trying to reel in the mainstream audiences (the hardcore fans are already secured since, like you, they get super hyped at the very notion that their precious series is being revived "oh the nostalgia!")

Ofc, I don't know a thing about (western) comic books, and I'd hardly consider myself mainstream so this movie doesn't really pique my interest all that much :T

...No one thinks that. In fact, what the fans of the comic (myself included) are complaining about is the current run on the comic itself, which, by the way, is utter shit. We're kind of hoping that the movie (which ironically is closer to the original run than the comic itself right now) will double back on the comics and help to make them... not shit.

The "hard core" fans of this comic were the first people on board for this shit, as well as the nice people who gave me the recommended reading for them. (Ironically, it was on my "to read" list a short while before the movie was announced) I've never once seen any of them complain about it.

Also, the comics are finally getting re-collected because of the movie. If anyone enjoys the film, I'd  recommend trying the first volume out. It might be a bit confusing because they mention the previous two events during the first issue or so, but it's pretty easy to get into. If that isn't enough to convince you, then I'll go straight to this: space lesbians.

I got to see it early, it was fantastic. Pretty easy to follow actually even though I didn't know many of the characters except for a few.
