Guardians of the Galaxy

207

I Am Groot

Put in your mix tape and get ready for a climactic dance-off! We’re talking “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Marvel’s latest hit movie and a real departure in so many ways. What makes the movie work? What are its flaws? We break it all down.

Jason Snell with Serenity Caldwell, David J. Loehr, Monty Ashley and Tony Sindelar

The Three Hoarsemen 12

We Talk Guardians of the Galaxy

As epic terrors imperil the cosmos, Fred Kiesche, Jeff Patterson, and the newly cyberneticized John E. O. Stevens blaze across the heavens wielding wit, fortitude, and implausibly potent weapons of dubious origin to discuss the Guardians of the Galaxy.

The Hoarsemen share their opinions on the movie (SPOILER ALERT), then turn their attentions to the comics which spawned it. Fred wrestles with the convoluted continuity of Marvel’s cosmic playground, while life-long readers John and Jeff endure the dual threats of retcon and reboot. Why was the first iteration of Jason Quill such a jackass? Will we ever see Mantis on the big screen? And can anyone defeat Taserface!

As usual, the chaotic cosmic conversation concludes with the customary captivating chronicles of Culture Consumed. (Long-time Marvel fans, see what I did there?)

The celestial vastness awaits! Quickly! Before the spacetime continuum is torn asunder!

Fred Kiesche, John E.O. Stevens and Jeff Patterson

A Turducken of Dead Media

In a decidedly VFX heavy episode, we catch up on some industry news before spending almost as long talking about Guardians of the Galaxy as we did watching it in the theater. The Spoiler Horn sounds at 26:45.
