Hi all! Checking in with a recommendation for those of you that like to know what I’m currently pimping. Whatever you are doing right now, stop; it’s not as important as what I’m about to tell you. Immediately go to use whatever tool you use to look up movie times…find out when the next showing of Guardians of the Galaxy is at your local multiplex and get your happy little self on over to the movie theater, with a quickness! You’ll thank me! You need to see this movie; the sooner the better.
Here’s a little background so you can understand why I’m so confident that I know what’s best for you regarding this movie. The official premiere of the movie was this past Friday, 8/1/14. It’s Monday, 8/4/14. I’ve seen it three times. I’ve seen it in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D. So we can go ahead and consider me an expert on the movie already, if you will. Trust me; you’ll LOVE it! It has something for everyone. If you like to laugh, if you like sexy men, if you like bad ass women, if you are a fan of 80’s pop culture, if you like 70’s soft rock, if you are a person, if you breathe, if you exist….you’re going to like this movie! If you’ve seen the trailers and previews, you may have seen the green skinned woman, the talking raccoon and the tree…with a face…that hangs out with people….and wondered if the movie was really for you. I’m here to tell you that not only is it totally for you, but you are probably going to leave the theater a little bit in love with that tree! Seriously! Regardless of what it may look like, at its core, the movie is about family and friendship, dealing with loss and thinking about the greater good, all themes most anyone can relate to. You’ll laugh and you might even cry but you’ll laugh more, I promise. You also might find yourself dancing in your seat and singing along with the soundtrack. Trust me; it’s a fun movie and you won’t regret going to see it! And if..no…WHEN you do go see it, come tell me what you think! You know the only reason I have this blog is to pimp what I like so I can have more people to discuss my stuff with! For real though; go see it and ENJOY!
Also, if you missed Captain America: The Winter Soldier while it was in theaters earlier this year, you missed a fantastic action/spy thriller/superhero flick! No worries, though; its out on DVD and Blu Ray in the US on 9/9/14. Make sure you see it if you haven’t. I wrote a review of it for Heroes and Heartbreakers that you can find here .
