Guardians of the Galaxy

“Nothing goes over my head. My reflexes are too fast. I would catch it."

This, good people, is a summer tentpole we can get excited about. Director James Gunn has delivered a funny and frolicking space opera in “Guardians of the Galaxy” with a terrific cast, immersive effects, and a script that is, as we’re apt to say, way smarter than it needed to be. Join Mike Evans, Tom Metz, Andy Nelson, Steve Sarmento, Chadd Stoops, and Pete Wright as we break down the film. We walk through James Gunn’s performance as director and co-writer with Nicole Perlman, Ben Davis’ cinematography, gorgeous production and art design and, of course, performances from Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel that makes our cinematic introduction to this off-beat comic property so enjoyable. Listen in and share your thoughts!
