Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy

Well this was just plain fun. I had a smile on my face through almost the entire movie. And if you want a TLDR for this review, then fun pretty much sums it all up. Certainly this isn't an intel­lec­tu­ally chal­lenging movie but I think I can safely say that you'll enjoy every moment of it.

Anni­hilus Anni­hilus is a warlord/rule of the Nega­tive zone and was tradi­tion­ally seen as a Fantastic Four char­acter due to his origin. This means that it's possible he's not avail­able to Marvel right now since Fox has the license for the Fantastic Four family of characters.
