Three years ago. many were introduced to the Guardians of the Galaxy. The success of the first movie surprised many. Among the five main characters, the two most recognizable actors were only doing voice work, Vin Diesel as Groot and Bradley Cooper as Rocket. Zoe Saldana was hidden behind alien makeup. At the time, Chris Pratt was just some goofy guy on Parks and Recreation. Then there’s former pro-wrestler Dave Bautista rounding out the cast. Not exactly the standard formula for a success. But it was successful. The Marvel machine was rolling, and word of mouth on the movie was incredibly positive. The movie went on to gross over $770 million world-wide at the box office.
And now, we have the highly anticipated sequel. While overall enjoying the movie, there were some positives and negatives that jumped out to me. Spoilers ahead. (more…)
With Summer quickly approaching, so too is the Summer movie season. So in this episode, we are highlighting some movies we’re looking forward to, and some that we can’t actually believe are being made in release. Also, this installment of “Better Know an X-Man” features Slipstream.

Related, I love the sound effects being used. “Piuu” is an adorable laser sound for a murderous raccoon to have.
