Even though it's already mid-August, summer movie season isn't over yet! Here's the best-looking blockbusters you can see before Fall starts!
I mean, RIGHT? So many great things to catch on the second viewing - like, oh man, there were a couple references to Peter's dad being an alien, huh? You can really appreciate the interplay between Rocket and Groot a little more, notice how nicely they handle the Peter Quill-Gamora romance arc, and DAMN Bautista really nailed it as Drax, right? Nice going, Bautista.
Wow, just so good. Best movie of the summer, by a longshot. "We are Groot" still gets you. Same with "Awesome Mix Vol. 2". They kinda bungled Gamora's arc though, huh? Her big character moment (switching sides and betraying Ronan and Thanos) happens off-screen - BEFORE THE MOVIE STARTS? Her relationship with Nebula is also a little undercooked. Karen Gillan shaved her head and that's all they gave her to do? Oh well, that Star-Lord dance contest bit at the end is still amazing.
Palette cleanser. Makes you really appreciate how good Guardians of the Galaxy is. Plus, what is it with Michael Bay updates of late 80s/early 90s properties not focusing on the title characters? Why are the Transformers and the Ninja Turtles side characters in their own movies? Why would anyone assume people wanted to pay for these movies to see Mark Wahlburg or Megan Fox run around in incomprehensible action scenes for 2 hours?
OH GOD EVERYTHING IS FORGIVEN. JESUS THIS SOUNDTRACK I MEAN COME ON SO GOOD.
AaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH THIS LOOKS SO GOOD. Definitely the Guardians of the Galaxy of 2015, except in the desert and with crazy big post-apocalyptic car chases and no tree-men or raccoons.
Actually maybe just watch nothing but Guardians of the Galaxy forever? Yeah, that.
