EPISODE 37: Friendship Saves The Day (Guardians of the Galaxy)

“That’s the opposite of having a gift, George.”

–Kevin

How could you possibly condense 40 years worth of comic book stories, told across multiple titles and timelines into one movie and have it maintain all the appeal of the original material?  Well, you cannot.  BUT…if you just want to make a kick-ass, really fun Sci-Fi Comic Book movie with some great characters and memorable moments then you hire James Gunn.  We talk about GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, which Kevin has never seen and George has seen about 50 times.  So, break out your Rocket Raccoon Happy Meal Toys and your Drax the Destroyer Slurpee Cups and buckle in for an HOUR of Busy Dads talking about a comic book movie.

Enjoy and thanks for putting up with us!
