I enjoyed the movie.  And like a lot of other people I didn't have any previous exposure to the GotG comic.  But the movie stood well on it's own and the characters were interesting.  I may go back and see it again.

Seeing some of the big cosmic players in the Marvel Universe on screen like this was great.  Without getting into spoiler details there were so many civilizations and individuals that got touched upon:  Thanos, Ronan the Accuser, the Kree, Xandar and the Nova Corps, the Celestials, the Infinity Stones and the Collector. WHOA.  That's a lot of Marvel cosmic territory to cover, but it got done without shoe-horning.

I really liked getting to see the Collector's museum.  Obviously, there were the two characters that were seen in the post credits scene.  But in the initial scenes I also noticed some other beings in the collection that we'd seen in previous movies, like a Chitauri as well as a Dark Elf.

And another thing that I noticed?  On one of the ships there seemed to be some glyphs that resembled something we saw on television.  Hmmm...

I saw this and liked it, but I don't know if I missed something in conversation or what (I do have a slight hearing problem), so I might have to see it again.  But it left me with questions... maybe it's something in the comics that didn't translate.  I guess for me, it'd be cool to see some more background stories of Rocket/Groot, Drax and Gamora.

saw this last night with my 10 year old girl and 6 year old boy and they loved it. Of course their favorite scene was near the end when baby Groot was dancining in the pot. And unfortunately my lil guy was about to pee his pants cuz it was such a long movie for him so we missed the end credit scenes.  :'(
But in all i loved it, VERY funny and i'm glad i went in not knowing anything about these characters so no preconceptions or comparisons to comic book versions. The part i loved the most was how much my kids enjoyed it. There was no squirming in the seats or falling asleep, lots of laughs from them.

Caught this last night and thought it was great.  Definitely fits in with the rest of the MCU movies.  However, this leaves me wanting another movie in the space between now and Avengers 2!

Well deserved.  I finally saw it over the weekend and it has to be one of my top five favorites of all Tim.  Great action, solid story, fun. Characters.  I loved it.

Loved every second of it. Man, what a fun ride! Saw it twice and definitely want to see it a third time.

The whole gang worked great together. Loved Groot's "Hulk vs. Loki" moment (that face!), Michael Rooker was just brilliant as Yondu, what a guy! And that face of Ronan when the infinity stone gets knocked off his hammer.... priceless  ;D Heck, everything was great, hahaa!

I have had the Awesome Mix Tape Vol. 1 in my car for a month now (on CD, don't have a cassette player in my car... yet), such an awesome soundtrack to the movie. I want to change that into a Tarantino-esque soundtrack, with soundclips from the movie in between the tracks. Already found a few, but I'll download a torrent of the movie and try to rip the sound of that.
