Guardians of the Galaxy: No Need for a Cinematic Avengers Crossover!

The verdict is in! The Guardians of the Galaxy have moved from C to D list superheroes to A list superstars literally overnight! I had my doubts about it, I mean who wouldn’t considering their previous popularity or should I say unpopularity in the comic books. But the movie was a ton of fun, it had great effects, a neat-o story, excellently executed characters and a ton of laughs! It also had another thing going for it-it stood on its own with out needing to constantly reference The Avengers!! It was honestly a breath of fresh air to see a Marvel flick that wasn’t (at this point) trying to tie in or crossover into The Avengers. I like the whole crossover cinematic movie universe that Marvel has created but does everything always need to tie into something else? The answer is no even though it seems now everyone is getting the idea that they want to crossover and create one big movie universe for their separate franchises.

Don’t get me wrong I love The Avengers-it was awesome. But I can’t tell you how happy I was that this had nothing to do really with Thor, Captain America & Iron Man! I hear the plan is to have the Guardians meet The Avengers. When I think about that, it really doesn’t excite as much as I thought it might. maybe because I simply enjoyed The Guardians so much that I’d just love to see them hit space on their own, Avenger free so to say. I think they should tie in a little bit with Thanos but do we really need a movie jam packed with ten plus superheroes crammed into space? I don’t think so! Right now I’m just excited to this movie again and I’m this close to saying I like the Guardians movie even more than The Avengers! Nice work Mr. Gunn!!!

This was one of my favorite comics as a kid! And it is a crossover…so well, maybe Marvel will once again prove me wrong?!*-

The A-Team Returns….

The A-Team is officially back with this new photo which was just released on the web. I am really not sure what to make of this yet. I have fears of remaking these TV shows into movies as thoughts of The Dukes of Hazzard and Land of the Lost enter my mind. I’m not entirely sure what approach they are taking with this one. A parody like The Brady Bunch? Or a full on action movie with tons of CG and explosions? Lets face it the show was a classic and a huge hit in the 80’s but does it really need to be made into a movie? It’s kinda pointless without Mr. T isn’t it?? Well I guess from the picture Liam Neeson looks pretty cool as Hannibal. In all reality this movie will probably suck pretty damn bad as do most things they remake. It is shecduled to hit theaters in June 2010. I however am definately not going to risk 10 bucks at the theater to see this one. I think I’ll just watch the originals on dvd…
