From the Hilarious ...

Over a week ago I took in Marvel Studio's Guardians of the Galaxy. A full-scale review would take the film more seriously that its creators could have intended. In short, I took it to be a spoof--but a sentimental one--of the contemporary genre of over-the-top action super-hero films. Yet, whatever its point, Guardians of the Galaxy was great fun. Most important to its success was that the film did not take itself seriously. It's plot made little sense but the characters were a hoot and the special effects were great.

More need not be said but I'm glad I went. A great two-hour escape.
