Saturday/ Guardians of the Galaxy

The motley crew of superheroes that saves the galaxy in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’. Yes, that is a raccoon in the front and a tree-person like the ones in Lord of the Rings in the back!

[From Wikipedia]  A galaxy is a massive, gravitationally-bound system consisting of stars, stellar remnants, an interstellar medium of gas and dust, and dark matter, an important but poorly understood component. (Our solar system’s galaxy is the Milky Way).

Guardians of the Galaxy is a 2014 super-hero film based on the Marvel comic books with the same name.  Watching it Saturday night, I tried to hang with the plot, the best part of which is the ‘Infinity Stone’ that can destroy an entire galaxy (but it’s not clear which galaxy the movie refers to, actually).   The movie is not quite Star Trek-ky (maybe more like Star Wars?) but anyway : I could not quite warm up to it.   The music in it is a throwback to the 70’s when cassette tapes were used to play the likes of BJ Thomas’s hit ‘Hooked on a Feeling’ – which I liked a lot when I played a little of it on iTunes.   But I disagree with the 90% or 4 stars out of 5 the reviewers give the flick.   I give it a 6 or a 7 out of 10.
