I don't understand how the movie got 9 out of 10 on IMDB. I didn't think it warranted a 6 because if you strip away the one liners, poorly disguised slapstick comedy and cute characters and got to the core of the movie, you'd realize that there's the same overused plot Marvel has been falling back on, over and over again.
Sure they are building up to something bigger, like an epic film where the infinity stones all come together.. But instead of a bad guy getting a hold of power and attempting to destroy a planet... ISN'T THERE SOMETHING ELSE THEY CAN COME UP WITH?!
How about a movie where they go on an adventure to find the goddamn thing or something?
The tree, the raccoon, all garnered some awww moments. But I never felt for Peter or Gamora. Heck, I could relate to the literal guy more than I could relate to them and Peter is actually human.
Also! Anyone else thought that Loki and Nebula should end up together? Both have daddy issues and are blue (figuratively & literally, respectively)
That's pretty much all I have to say about this otherwise good movie, bearing in mind that it's a blockbuster, with no substance. Funny and fresh, yes. Best? LOL no. But extra points for the OST. Mmhmm.
