Guardians of the Galaxy rules!! As someone who wasn’t familiar with the comics, this was a major blast. Everything from the action, laughs, characters, soundtrack, and unexpected heart makes this one of the MCU’s greatest. https://t.co/sA6CHImR0Z pic.twitter.com/uQvJHWMH0e— DC Bolling (@DCsFilmTake) August 1, 2020
