While Guardians of the Galaxy won't see its wide release until August 1st, it had its first early screening to the public last night - and the reactions are already pouring in. While press embargoes won't allow full reviews until near the release, people are allowed to give their brief impressions on Twitter. And the results are, in a word, AWESOME.
Apparently it's great, fun, fantastic, and a worthy new entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Ooga-chocka for life.
