Okay, I am going to be straight up with you – the first time I saw the trailer in the theatre for Guardians of the Galaxy, I thought it was dumbest thing I had ever seen. Dumb! Stupid! I said to myself – This like the Avengers in space! As a child, I never actually read the comics that were associated with the Guardians, so I had no idea who they were. I was completely opposed to seeing the film.
Now – fast forward to opening weekend for Rogue One. I went to see the film with my friends Steve and Mary. Before the film began, there was a trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol.2. I looked over at Steve and said that I hadn’t seen the first one because the trailer looked so dumb. He said, What?! Mary said the same thing. Then she saw it and loved it.” I was like really! That weekend, I DVRed it and watched it.
My first reaction after watching the movie was exactly this – you’re an idiot Perna! An idiot! That’s possibly the best Marvel film yet. What makes the whole movie is the awesome music from the soundtrack – one hit after another. The characters are also so awesome and the actors playing them do an excellent job. Again I said to myself – you’re an idiot, Perna! Since December, I probably have watched the movie 10 times…yes, 10 times! It’s awesome and I absolutely love it!
So with this being said, here are some of my favorite lines from the movie. They are in no particular order. At the end, I have also inserted a video introducing the Guardians when they are arrested (except for Drax the Destroyer).
Rocket Raccoon: You’re…making…me…beat…up…grass!
Groot: I am Groot. (Later on in the movie, great scene – “We are Groot.”)
Peter Quill/Star-Lord: You said it yourself, b*tch. We’re the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Gamora: I know what you’re trying to do, Peter Quill, and I am some starry-eyed waif here to succumb to your… your pelvic sorcery!
Rocket Raccoon: Let’s get something clear! This one here is our booty. You wanna get to him, you go through us… or, more accurately, we go through you!
Rocket Raccoon: His people are entirely literal. Metaphors go right over his head.
Drax the Destroyer: Nothing goes over my head. My reflexes are too fast and I would catch it.
Peter Quill/Star-Lord: Well on my planet, we have a legend about people like you. It’s called Footloose. And in it, a great hero, named Kevin Bacon, teaches an entire city full of people with sticks up their butts that dancing, is the greatest thing there is.
Rocket Raccoon (talking to Groot): Four of us? Asleep for the danger, awake for the money as for frikin’ usual.
Rocket Raccoon: Well now I’m standing. Happy? We’re all standing now. Bunch of jackasses, standing in a circle.
Gamora: I have live most of my life surrounded by my enemies. I would be grateful to die surrounded by my friends.
Drax the Destroyer: Finger to the throat means death. Metaphor! Peter Quills/Star-Lord: Sort of.
Peter Quill/Star-Lord: I come from a planet of outlaws: Billie the Kid, Bonnie and Clyde, John Stamos…
Ronan the Accuser: What are you doing? Peter Quill/Star-Lord: I’m distracting you, you turd-blossom!
Peter Quill/Star-Lord: What should we do next: Something good, something bad? Bit of both? Gamora: We’ll follow your lead, Star-Lord. Peter Quill/Star-Lord: A bit of both!
Today, I am off to see Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 with Steve and Mary. To say I am excited would be an understatement. More fun is going to be next year when we see the Avengers and the Guardians come together to fight Thanos in Infinity Wars, Part 1. The sarcasm dialogue between Rocket, who is my favorite of the Guardians, and Tony Stark should be entertaining in itself.
Warning: the video is uncensored. I couldn’t find a censored video showing the whole crew.
