Episode 111 – Guardians of the Galaxy

landscape_xlargeThis week we unleash our geek love for Guardians of the Galaxy, which is still in theaters waging battle with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  And by “waging battle,” we mean “kicking the butt of.”   We talk a bit about the source material and about what we all think work about the movie.  Then we get into the larger picture of Marvel movies.  Also, there are a lot of spoilers.  If you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy, you may want to skip this episode and come back later.  At the end of the episode, we read off five answers from Australia!

Show notes below the fold:

A little more information on the absence of Gamora Merch.

    It seems with every Marvel movie that comes out, I say “This is now my favorite.” That’s what it was like for Winter Soldier, and now that’s what it is for GotG.

  2. Yes! Thanks for reading my questions and I love how y’all responded! FLAC is indeed how we collect. I swear by FLAC. When you have to use compression, FLAC is the best.

    As to the future… Marvel’s still on a streak, and DC still apparently doesn’t know what it’s doing…

    I went and saw the movie on opening day in IMAX 3D. I need to go see it again.

    My absolute favorite part of the movie is Drax’s line when the group is planning the assault on Ronan’s ship, “Oh, I didn’t hear that. I was thinking about something else.”

    Marvel movies have turned out one dog – “The Punisher”. The original 2004 story and plot of the film is mainly based on the comic books The Punisher: Year One, and Welcome Back, Frank.

    Now I’m a huge fan of The Punisher, especially the Garth Ennis revival and I found the production to be slow and plodding.

    The second 2008 Punisher: War Zone didn’t do very well either.

    • All the Welcome Back, Frank parts are great. Everything else about it is pretty crappy. My biggest problem with the 2004 Thomas Jane movie was that there were scenes where The Punisher wasn’t, you know, punishing bad guys. What gives?

      Though, neither movie is a part of the MCU (199999 Universe), and the 2004 and 2008 movies were not done by Marvel. Marvel did get the rights back in 2010, which is incredibly exciting! Kevin Feige (President of Marvel Studios, their production company) has said that he would love to have him appear in the Daredevil/Marvel Knights netflix series, or at least hint at his existence in the series.

      Thanks for listening and commenting!
