You may have already guessed it, but… Yep! I’m guilty –> I need to watch the first Guardians of the Galaxy before I go to watch the sequel. And thankfully, I haven’t been spoiled anything.
When Guardians of the Galaxy first came out, I guess I was one of those that snobbed the movie – yes, yes, I know, I was one of those people. A lot of my friends who had gone to watch the movie came out saying “it was really good” and “you should try it”. But, being the stubborn critic I am, I kept on saying “no”.
Looking back, I really should have saved myself the effort and the pride, and should have just gone and watched the movie with my friends. But, this is the price I get for being pigheaded.
What did you guys think of the first movie? What did you think of the second one?
Pokemon, Power Puff Girls, Digimon, Dexter’s Laboratory, Totally Spies, Scooby Doo, Looney Tunes, Spongebob Squarepants… I could go on and on about all the series I used to watch as a child. My parents used to advice me to ‘unstick’ myself from the TV because my eyes were starting to turn ‘square’.
Almost all of the cartoons and anime I watched as a child have their own movies – animation or/and live action versions – and some of them are making a comeback to bring closure (I’m looking at you, Samurai Jack) or agitate our nostalgia. One of those is Power Rangers. I always enjoyed the story behind it and the characters as well. Growing up though I got tired of the bad guys.
For that reason, this is one of the series that I found intriguing and exaggerated at the same time. Do I dare say that it was as if watching a car crash? No? Maybe?… Anyone?
I’m still looking forward to it. It looks like something I would go to the cinema and watch, even without having known the series to begin with.
