bigbaldust’s review published on Letterboxd:
How Guardian of the Galaxy is the best thing Marvel ever did? Different species and things across the universe gather together as a team to defend the whole galaxy. Perfectly characterization of every character with perfectly balance runtime each one of them. (Well maybe except Drax and Mantis which they just chilling and sharing together as new friends which also help in the end of story, wait, it's happen for Nebula and Gamora too i guess, well, they still tolerable i supposed).
Top three performances: Kurt Russel as Ego, Michael Rooker as Yondu, and Bradley Cooper as Rocket. I'm amaze how good their performance on this movie and brings the character very emotionally and perfectly.
CGI and visual effects that make this movie so much better than another MCU movie i guess. Maybe I just love the world of this planet Ego is, but still I think they should explore and make the planet more naturally so will be better. Technologies, air-ships, and weapons that brings this movie more into science-fiction genre which I love that most. And the last, best use for musics and ost, and the scoring of the last sequence is very emotional!
