Guardians of the Galaxy – Brief Thoughts

I finally saw Guardians of the Galaxy.  I liked it, but not as much as I thought I would.  I thought it worked best as a comedy and not as much everywhere else.  I’m going to watch it again as I was kind of tired when I watched it and I think it merits another […]
