It's the way it was used that implied a passive aggressive dig.

 

I guess my question is: so?

Guys... it was just an offhand thought I had and posted, then was prompted to explain. I'm not wringing my hands over it. Not damning the maker.

It just reminds me of the digs on Disney that some DeviantArtists publish. Everything felt valid, honest even until that cartoon "Disney's" font popped up.

Yep. I visit it about once a week. Some neat stuff there. If you visit without logging in the default searching is supposed to be SFW, but it's not like every submitted work is reviewed prior to the public so fair warning. Without the SFW filter, btw... umm, yeah... I know art is subjective but certain things are "you know it when you see it". LOL

I've noticed the other Guardians seem to understand "I am Groot" as an actual part of the conversation. Is it portrayed this way in the comic?

Rocket usually seems to understand him best in the comics, while the others may get the general gist of emotion, urgency, and such.

 

Of course, Rocket could also be completely making up Groot's half of the conversation, which isn't entirely outside the realm of possibility with Rocket.

I'd just like to again reiterate that both Groot and Rocket are appearing in a big budget major motion picture before both Wonder Woman and the Flash. Tell that to your comic reading self 20 or more years ago. Hell, even 10.

While that is surprising, Howard the Duck beat all four by almost three decades.

I actually liked Howard the Duck.

I thought Howard himself was very well-done for being a practical effect.

Just got back from seeing this--it was so much fun! Lots and lots of goodies for hardcore marvel fans without alienating casual fans. Great action, great music, great banter--loved it!

We're seeing it on Sunday and I can't wait. Considering my initial thoughts when this movie was first announced, I really can't believe how excited I am for it.

My wife and I saw this today and we both thought it was fantastic.   I would say that it's probably my favorite Marvel film thus far.   That being said, I don't keep up with any of the comics.  So I don't have any of that swaying my opinion.

 

A lot of people are liking Rocket the best, but I thought Quill was the best.   Rocket and Groot with honorable mentions.   Groot gave me a real Chewie-type feeling.  Thought Gamora fell a little bit flat and wasn't clearly defined as well as the other characters.   But I'm willing to overlook nearly anything for Zoe Saldana.  Loved the humor through out the movie.  Really fit in with the ridiculousness of the whole thing.   There were still enough serious moments to keep me invested.

 

Also.  Kevin Bacon.  :thumbsup:

Pg-13. I get that. But is it a soft pg-13? My son is enamored with it, and he's 4, and so am I, of course. Wondering if it's soft enough that I can take him to see it and not really question it afterwards.

I haven't seen it.

Although basing my opinion on similar films at that rating then anything sexually mature would be done in a way a child would have little to no ability to comprehend. Violence on the other hand could be rampant, but usually with minimal gore. Cursing might be an issue.

Avengers was PG-13 and by the same studio, so that should probably be a fair basis for comparison.

I'm letting my 4yo, 9yo and 16yo go see it with their grandparents based on my movie watching experience.

I don't think there is anything in there a 4 year old would have a problem with.   There is no gore.  There is some language but nothing you wouldn't see on prime time cable.

Saw this today and really enjoyed it! Great funny bits, mainly with Peter, and some good action sequences.
Everyone looked like they were having a damn good time!

Also: Jackson 5 sequence! :-)

There's a couple swears but no f-bombs (that I recall).

I enjoyed it, though I wanted more of every character. There's so many great characters that I think many got short-changed to keep the story moving.

We just watched it. We LOVED it. What a terrific movie! We'll probably go see it again. Definitely the most fun I've had at the theaters in a while. Groot was the best.

That was great! I had a ton of fun watching it, and that's all I want out of a movie!

 

And my theater was 90-95% full at 11AM on a Sunday... I would imagine that bodes well for first weekend numbers.

Box Office Mojo is saying 94M for the opening weekend.   Pretty solid numbers.  Makes it the number 3 opener of the year. (Transformers and Captain America)

I thought it was awesome-- very 70s space opera inspired. My only complaint is that so much of it was CGI it started to have that PT overly slick- too fake look.

But it was so entertaining I got over it
