Guardians of the Galaxy (movie review)

We saw Guardians of the Galaxy this past Sunday with a full house at 10:50 AM. The movie is filled with murder, violence, profanity, betrayal, torture, sadness, jokes, pop songs from the 1970s, abduction, deaths of innocents, more murder, more violence… and it’s probably the most fun you’ll have at the movies this year.

“And there’s your blurb,” as Christy Lemire would say.

Like the Captain America of Old, Chris Evans Tell Us What We Need to Hear

Captain-America-USO

“I think the girls only know the one song… but I’ll see what I can do.”

If you follow us on Twitter, you’re cool – but you also know I’m not a fan of this new volume of Captain America. The writing is boring and the character’s all wrong. Old School Captain America always knew what to do because he’s not just the champion of ideals, he is the ideal, and actor Chris Evans, who portrays the Star Spangled Avenger on the big screen, fits that tradition like a glove.

In an interview he gave to The Advocate (which I cannot find – thanks Google!), he had this to say on gay marriage:

“Are you kidding me? It’s insane that civil rights are being denied people in this day and age. It’s embarrassing and it’s heartbreaking. It goes without saying that I’m completely in support of gay marriage. In 10 years we’ll be ashamed that this was an issue.”

SWISH! Did the Captain hit the nail on the head or what? Chris Evans deserves some big ups for not wimping out and letting his shield fly. Good job, Cap – now go punch us some bad guys!

Avengers and TMNT action figures

avengers-action-figures

This box set of Avengers action figures made me feel old.  I said something like, “In my day, we had to collect all, each sold separately – and we liked it!”  But for Christmas in 2012, you can just plop down $45 at Target and take home the entire team and their primary adversary all in one shot!  Disgraceful!

Super Hero Balls

Like this morning’s post, this is probably not what you expected from this title.  Every time we go into CVS, we make a stop over here in the toy aisle, but never actually buy anything.

I like that Black Widow (right corner of Avengers ball) is doing a silly looking kick, but poor Batman – getting stuck with Plastic Man is a raw deal.  (FYI:  Plastic Man predates Mr. Fantastic of the Fantastic Four.)  I wonder why no other members of the Justice League were available to appear on this ball.  Look, they didn’t even bother to put Plastic Man on the other side of the ball.
