In my opinion, and probably the opinion of others, this summer lacked movie magic. There wasn’t many movies that were worth seeing, and the ones that were predicted to do well either didn’t or were hated my critics and audiences(Transformers:AOE, TMNT).
Once August hit, I felt like the summer of movies was over. There was nothing to look forward to and most movies, with the exception of “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes” and “22 Jump Street”, were complete letdowns.
I was never excited to see “Guardians Of The Galaxy”. I thought it looked stupid and Marvel films were just getting a little too much for me. However, after reading reviews and walking into a theatre where baby Groot is dancing to Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back”, I decided to give it a chance. Besides, I get free movies anyway right? I never thought I’d love the movie so much that I would end up seeing it 5 times in theatres. It was action packed, hilarious, heart-warming and suspenseful and that, to me, is what a summer movie should be. If you haven’t seen it, check it out. If you have, check it out again.
Hopefully, within the next few months, I’ll be seeing more indie dramas. I really would love to check out “Boyhood”, which I heard is fantastic, and “Frank”, which I also heard is fantastic.
So my questions of the day are:
How many times have you seen Guardians?
And is there anymore you’ve seen more than 3 times?
