Can I just say that Guardians of the Galaxy is a visual event like no other. When you see a singular work which represents the powerful, funny, beautiful and light touch of so many individual talents, it's a truly humbling moment. I confess it made me want to pack in individual art making for at least an hour or two. (So exciting!)
They are the first to really unravel the potential of 3D (thank God it didn't get relegated to fad like 'Smell-o-vision') It blithely pirouettes through so many past Sci-fi visual markers and is always original and witty. I felt this way after Matrix, 5th Element and yes.. Avatars. To reclaim a floppy and overweight American phrase, this-is-a ... game-changer. If you don't see it, you're a flibbertigibbet and a nincompoop.
