The the more I see (trailers) for Guardians of the Galaxy, the more I like. That’s very rare in this day and age.
Let me attempt to break down why “I’m hooked on” this feelin’.
There’s humor in it, the comic book movies of late are sorely lacking in the levity department. With the success of the Dark Knight Trilogy everyone seems to think that the dark broody nature of things must permeate all… things. It works for Batman, but not for Superman, some levity could’ve made Man of Steel a lot better…
It’s nice to have some laughs brought back in to things.
And this’ll be the first comic book movie in which I haven’t read the source material.
The tone, the light hearted quality and the fantastic nature of it all are things that we need for our escapism, I’m looking forward to August 1, 2014.
