guardians of the galaxy

We recently were given passes to see Guardians of the Galaxy before it is released. I only had 2 passes so I brought Johnny with me. He loves Marvel comics and I knew he would enjoy this time together. We grabbed our seats and got ready for the show.

From the very beginning I was drawn in to this film. The personal story of young Peter had me in near tears. Thankfully, that was the only time I felt like crying throughout. What I found is that this movie has a very humorous aspect, one that younger viewers may not “get” all the time. Johnny still really enjoyed the movie though and said that he would love to see it again!

The action was fun and exciting, the imagery amazing, and the characters were all very interesting. I would definitely recommend this movie if you are looking for what to watch. It will be in theaters on August 1st (my birthday) and is rated PG-13.

I found some great recipes on Foodie that I think you will love!
