Those who can't grasp this, are infantile and should remove themselves from the gene pool. You are bringing us down as a SPECIES!
Shame on you!
Bad nerd! Bad!
As for this arrogant absurd sarcastic (Spot the joke kiddies!) of a geek:
I enjoyed Guardian of the Galaxy mostly because the movie played right onto my level of nostalgia and love of sci-fi flicks. It played on them so well that I honestly was able to watch the movie and not be tempted to figure out the second half of the plot midway through the film.
(Unlike Star Trek Into Darkness. Still liked it, just face-palmed when I figured out the rest of the film and had to sit through what I once jokingly talked about doing in a fan fiction involving Q)
In other words, my belief was suspended, I was vulnerable. This movie could tell me that Pizza with glass shoved into it is the best @#$%ing pizza in the world...and I would eat it.
That's what a good sci-fi movie experience is.
So what do I think of this review from the Post? Nothin', cause there are some fine points in the article that make sense. It honestly made me look back at it objectively.
Does it mean I hate Guardians of the Galaxy any less?
Nope. I want a Groot tattoo on the inside of my thigh...
For those of you reading this far, congratulations, feel free to creep me on Facebook and discover my blog that updates as often as a glacier moves! Now for further ranting: Also there's no pie so you can stop reading if you want. (THIS MAKES SENSE LATER DOWN)
The hate for DC live action amazes me. Sure they haven't been the best, but DC hasn't taken much of a leading role with the films until recently, and even then its mostly Warner Bros making the shots.
The problem with Warner Bros is that, frankly, they're best at animation and appealing to a younger audience. Not saying that's all they do, but its what they're damn good at. I mean that. Frankly the DC/Warner Bros cartoons are my absolute favorites. I will happily binge watch some Justice League/Unlimited with some random nerds and talk @#$% about it (the good and bad), it was a fun show. It had the spirit of what you'd expect from something with Super heroes.
The problem is they've yet to do it with live action, while Marvel has. The good news is that I think they're starting to pull their heads out of their asses by doing things in a rather unexpected manor that's making those of us who do sit on the sidelines of the Marvel vs DC crowds, take notice.
But what do I know? I'm pretty sure when word gets out that I met Stan Lee as a kid I didn't know who he was and just was kinda "meh".
I'd probably kick my 8 year old self in the balls if I could now.
TL;DR- @#$% you. Read it or forever be doomed to be lost in ignorance on what you COULD have known. There could be pie up there!
