Fun with Franchises: The Marvel Universe – Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), Part V — “That’s One Way of Ensuring Everyone Is At Least Mortally Wounded”

We continue with another entry in our Fun with Franchises series. This week’s film is Guardians of the Galaxy.

Fun with Franchises is a series born out of my friend Colin and I realizing how much fun it was for the two of us to watch the same movie separately and then share our reactions. We started by watching all of the James Bond movies, for the purposes of ranking them for the blog. I brought him in because he was much more of a Bond expert than I was at the time, and I felt his perspective would liven things up. He would be the color commentator to my play-by-play man.

We soon discovered that, by watching the movies separately and then putting everything we said together in the same place, hilarity ensued. We each brought in our own observations, not knowing what the other would say, and then reacted to what the other said. And we loved every minute of it.

We had so much fun, we figured we had to do it again. So we graduated from a single franchise, to all franchises. If you’re gonna have fun with franchises, it wouldn’t be right if you didn’t franchise it. Season 1 included the Harry Potter movies, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Twilight (which neither of us had seen before we watched them for the articles) and Pirates of the Caribbean. All of those articles can be read on the Fun with Franchises page.

Also, just so we’re clear, this is all for parody. We’re just messing with them because we love them. (Well… Twilight…) We’re watching movies we enjoy and are simply having some fun with them.

Right now, we’re doing the Marvel Universe, and today is the fifth and final part of Guardians of the Galaxy.

Guardians of the Galaxy - Title Card

We begin Part V as the ship condom is failing.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2433

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2434

“Xandar!”

Colin:

Oh! Wait! HE’S ACCUSING, YOU GUYS!

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2435

“You stand accused!”

Go home, Ronan, you are drunk.

Colin:

His planet is still intact, too. It’s not even like Eric Bana from Star Trek, where his planet was destroyed.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2436

“Your wretched peace treaty will not save you now.”

Colin:

Does he have a PA system to everyone? I don’t get how this works.

Also, at this point in the entire situation, did anyone think a peace treaty was gonna save them?

Was he gonna get to the surface — “Wait a minute!” and they roll down the fucking treaty like the coroner in Oz. “Oh, shit, the treaty.” Like it’s fucking Dora. “Accuser no Accusing!” “Aww, FUCK!”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2437

“Tis the tinder on which you burn.”

Swipe right.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2438

Colin:

Wait, is that an open window? Was he just standing out on some balcony? Cause how else could he shoot? And in that case, why did the 15 or so Xandarian fighters not open fire as he was speaking?

I’m wondering why that thing can randomly fire as a weapon. Cause, like, it’s in his staff hammer thing, but also it seems like he’s imbued with it. Maybe I’m forgetting that part where it became a part of him and he could somehow withstand that. But even so, how can he randomly tell it to fire like that?

Also kinda funny how this stone (though I’m guessing this is the Power one, right?) can destroy a planet by touching it, yet the Aether — nah, all good. Or Loki’s staff one — nah, that shit hit the ground like three times and nothing happened. They never explained that it’s just this one that destroys planets. Shit, the Aether couldn’t even destroy NATALIE.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2439

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2440

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2441

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2442

RANDOM BLACK GUY!

Colin:

That’s the black guy who arrested them, isn’t it?

I do not know. So that means the question becomes: How Racist Was Mike’s Previous Statement?

I feel like this is going to becoming a continuous game in this feature.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2443

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2444

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2445

Oh look, they’re still fighting. They started back in Part IV. And we’ve only seen like a minute, total, of it.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2446

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2447

This is cool. The fight being interrupted by parts of the ship being blown up. I like that.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2448

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2449

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2450

Colin:

Body Slamming the fuck out of these Starmies.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2451

Colin:

THEY KILLED PORKINS

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2452

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2453

I hope Porkins’ ship used Double Team like four times. Because that other ship was me in that situation.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2454

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2455

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2456

Man, good thing that’s like quadruple reinforced unbreakable glass.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2457

Maybe break the fucking blockade now since it’s clearly not working anymore.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2458

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2459

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2460

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2461

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2462

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2463

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2464

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2465

“Rocket!”

It would have been nicer if he just got crushed without a word.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2466

“Hold on, Saal!”

Colin:

Was that a Southern accent? What?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2467

Colin:

Goodbye, snobbish British man who scoffs at good people.

Why were his last words to the raccoon?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2468

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2469

Seriously, Saal’s whole thing was “prove me wrong, Quill,” and then randomly he talked to the raccoon before he died. No form of cinematic “redemption” for him or anything. This leads me to believe either this was cut from something more, or they thought they were doing something cool by deliberately not giving him that moment. Comes off as kind of confusing, personally. That he is randomly talking to a raccoon out of nowhere rather than just getting crushed and us feeling bad.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2470

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2471

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2472

You felt nothing for that British fuck. Don’t pretend like you did.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2473

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2474

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2475

I like when explosions go dark. They feel more real that way. Even though it’s clearly fake as shit.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2476

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2477

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2478

Colin:

Glenn Close is really rallying the troops here. You hear me, Glenn Close? Great job watching a hologram of a ship destroy a hologram of your capital city.

And somehow their building — still okay.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2479

Colin:

Why do you look so surprised about what’s happening?

He’s high as shit right now.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2480

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2481

“Quill, you gotta hurry.”

Have I mentioned how I hate this type of action dialogue?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2482

“The city’s been evacuated.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2483

“We’re getting our asses kicked out here.”

So — don’t hurry up because we gotta kill this fuck. Hurry up because the city is now empty (even though the city being evacuated doesn’t matter to anyone, really), and because we’re getting our asses kicked. So hurry up and complete your objective because we’re failing at ours.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2484

“Gamora hasn’t opened the door.”

Colin:

She hasn’t opened the door to where she is? Cause she’s where Nebula was blown up, which is where you were. I’m confused.

Did they check the batteries?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2485

Would have made for a nice extended shot. But it only lasts about two seconds.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2486

Colin:

Getting some Luke zapping action, which is not nearly as fun because Palpatine isn’t making faces.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2487

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2488

Still not sure why we have to cut away from multiple plot lines. You can do that, but at least tell some of a story with the fight scenes first, because otherwise who gives a shit? It’s not like you really gave these two enough development over the course of the film for their fight to really matter. But at least if it gets screen time, the fact that they’re sisters who hate each other but not really can overcome that. But no. It’s just about action.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2489

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2490

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2491

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2492

“Oh shit, that’s a nice ass spaceship.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2493

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2494

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2495

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2496

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2497

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2498

That looks unhealthy.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2499

Really unhealthy.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2500

Can we talk about how weird this is?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2501

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2502

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2503

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2504

Good thing she’s surgically enhanced.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2505

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2506

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2507

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2508

Colin:

See, it’s still dark, and not like, Skyfall Shanghai dark.

But for the most part, you can see what’s going on here. So that’s a slight plus. (Slight.)

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2509

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2510

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2511

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2512

Good thing for nails.

Colin:

Ow. Good thing she’s a cyborg, or that would have hurt.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2513

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2514

Colin:

Cliffhanger? Which, ready? Also Michael Rooker. Shit.

NICE framing, though. Love the overhead. You know what would make this better? (Aside from the obvious.) No ships flying around.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2515

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2516

Oh, it’s this scene.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2517

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2518

“Sister.”

This some Mufasa shit right here.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2519

“Help us fight Ronan. You know he’s crazy.”

Separate points.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2520

“I know you’re both crazy.”

Does she bang? Can she bang? Asking for a friend.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2521

“OPTIMUS!”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2522

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2523

Colin:

Oh yes, save that. 

She ripped her arm off just by pulling down. No other arm, nothing. Just ripped it the fuck off. That’s pretty good circuit control.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2524

Is this a tally ho or a drop?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2525

Convenient.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2526

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2527

Well that was pretty graceful.

Colin:

Shit, she just landed on that ship like it was nothing. This is one of those things that makes moviegoers believe that some women are psycho bitches.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2528

“Get out!”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2529

I like that she used her arm with the missing cyborg hand to break the windshield.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2530

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2531

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2532

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2533

That’s it? She just flies off to fight another day? I’m not opposed to that. I liked her.

Colin:

I guess she can fly one-handed.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2534

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2535

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2536

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2537

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2538

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2539

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2540

So easy to break security in these places. Space architects have a sense of humor.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2541

Surprise, bitches!

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2542

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2543

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2544

Colin:

WAIT. WAIT. She opened the door and then busts through the floor! What was the purpose of getting the door open and having this long ass fight if you could just blow a hole in the floor in the first place?

IS SHE GONNA WALK THE DINOSAUR PLEASE TELL ME SHE’S GONNA WALK THE DINOSAUR RIGHT NOW

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2545

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2546

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2547

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2548

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2549

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2550

Colin:

Isn’t this thing for blowing up moons? Seems like more of an outdoors kinda toy. Which, toys are kinda bullshit, huh? I remember wanting toys as a kid and not understanding why adults didn’t want them too. And now I’m like, movies, computer, phone. Have fun with your neat-o action figure.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2551

Did you not turn around during any of that?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2552

Maybe move.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2553

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2554

A fucking target?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2555

So baked.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2556

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2556

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2557

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2558

Colin:

DILDO MISSILE

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2559

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2560

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2561

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2562

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2563

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2564

Why is that smoke blue?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2565

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2566

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2567

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2568

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2569

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2570

Colin:

I do dislike it when movies cut to everyone as the dust clears.

But how else will we know he’s not dead?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2571

“You did it!”

He said, not knowing how much time is left in the movie.

Colin:

Dave Bautista didn’t know there are like 20 minutes left of this movie.

Is he not mad that he didn’t get to do it?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2572

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2573

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2574

Colin:

God, how late 80s/early 90s can you get?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2575

Colin:

Oh, so I guess early 90s.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2576

“You know what this is missing? Doves.” — John Woo

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2577

Did she fuck Ronan? Did her sister? I’m actually more curious about if that happened than anything Ronan wants to do.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2578

Colin:

Didn’t she know that wasn’t gonna do shit?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2579

Those people are still there driving the thing?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2580

You got a hole in your chest.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2581

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2582

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2583

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2584

That’s it? He just throws them back a few feet?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2585

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2586

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2587

I love that he hit the ground, got up and started running toward him in a single motion. That was cool.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2588

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2589

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2590

Don’t run into his waiting choke hand.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2591

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2592

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2593

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2594

“It was a mistake. I do remember your family. Their screams were pitiful. I—”

Colin:

Apparently, he remembers who Dave Bautista is, too. Even though he expressly said he wouldn’t. I accuse you of talking a good one, Ronan.

I still say this should have been Saoirse Ronan.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2595

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2596

Colin:

Why wasn’t there a dangly feet shot? Remember Darth Vader? Remember when we enjoyed villains?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2597

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2598

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2599

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2600

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2601

That thing looks like a white blood cell vomiting.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2602

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2603

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2604

I’ve always wanted to tackle a tree.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2605

Colin:

That’s one way of ensuring everyone is at least mortally wounded.

That’s my favorite way to do things.

Also, That’s One Way of Ensuring Everyone Is At Least Mortally Wounded

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2606

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2607

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2608

Colin:

This is the room that had an opening to start with, and yet the Xandarian ships that were right in front of it, blocking it that whole time, never decided to use their little guns. Now that Rocket’s messed everything up, the ship’s going down.

The drivers were in those chairs. That’s why.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2609

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2610

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2612

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2613

Body being dragged out of frame.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2614

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2615

Colin:

Ronan was holding Dave Bautista. Dave’s okay. Where’s Ronan? Why has nobody confirmed that? Why are you not securing the stone?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2616

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2617

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2618

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2619

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2620

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2621

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2622

Colin:

Is it me, or are they a little quick to accept their fate? In any other movie, someone would be saying, “Follow me, we have to get to the hangar bay! There are still escape pods!” They all just assume that shit’s done without speaking to one another.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2623

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2624

This is kinda how Toy Story 3 ended.

Colin:

No, but seriously, why are they not securing the stone? If it’s not supposed to touch the planet, shouldn’t they be taking some measures to see that it doesn’t?

What if Rocket’s ship knocked the thing out of his hand and it fell off the ship all the way to the planet’s surface?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2625

Colin:

Weird that he can grow that fast but couldn’t grow back his arms super fast.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2626

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2627

Japan must have loved this movie.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2628

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2629

“No, Groot. You can’t. You’ll die.”

Colin:

I never want to hear this in another movie. This is the second time we’ve gotten it from Rocket alone.

That one seemed purely for the kids. The rest of us could have implied that was gonna be the end result. Personally they could have kept it at the next two lines of dialogue and it would have conveyed everything we needed to know.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2630

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2631

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2632

Those driving cartoon things are still in the air. Maybe just use those and steer the fucking thing.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2633

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2634

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2635

Colin:

Not super sure that just being inside a bunch of wood with nothing to hold onto and no padding would help enough in an impact like this.

I think those branches are being used as anchors. So it’s more protection than anything.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2636

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2637

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2638

Colin:

That’s a nice touch though, that he made the little firefly seeds or whatever. Help them to feel better.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2639

This is how I wanna die, wrapped up in some branches, passed out inside a tree cocoon.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2640

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2641

“Why are you doing this?”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2642

“WE are Groot.”

Colin:

I stand corrected. Four words from Vin Diesel. He actually did something with the voice acting though. Best voice acting I’ve heard that included only four words.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2643

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2644

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2645

Colin:

They’re taking advantage. You’re not getting misty over anyone in Captain America 2. And when I thought Jane Foster was in danger…well, that’s a joyous occasion.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2646

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2647

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2648

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2649

And that’s the end of the movie!

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2651

What is the rest of this planet like? This looks like Space America. But this is like, Space DC. So basically we’re destroying real DC and Space DC in consecutive movies.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2652

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2653

Colin:

Thanks for showing up during all of this, Asgard. I guess Loki’s on the throne and doesn’t give a fuck.

Someone’s gotta watch it.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2654

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2655

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2656

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2657

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2658

Yet the Nova Corps building — still standing.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2659

Colin:

Nice clouds.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2660

“Ooh, Child.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2661

I CAN’T FEEL MY LEGS!

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2662

Somehow that player — no only not destroyed but still playing.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2663

She can’t feel her legs either.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2664

Colin:

They’re all fine.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2665

“I called him an idiot.”

Maybe leave your dead friend alone until you’re sure the planet is safe.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2666

Colin:

Wait, WHAT? They just crash landed with enough force to make a massive crater and level everything for probably a kilometer in any direction, but fuck it, let’s have a crowd of people from this EVACUATED CITY surround them like 15 seconds after impact.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2667

Colin:

AND ONE IS THE ONLY GUY WE KNOW AROUND HERE

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2668

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2669

Maybe just do it now and end it.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2670

Old guy’s got a great reaction to this.

Colin:

Good white lady reaction, white lady.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2671

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2672

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2673

“You killed Groot!”

Technically YOU killed Groot. Since your plane is the reason that ship went down.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2674

Colin:

That’s a great idea. Charge the demigod.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2675

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2676

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2677

This is objectively pretty funny. A raccoon being thrown.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2678

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2679

“Behold, your Guardians of the Galaxy.”

Did anyone call them that before?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2680

“What fruit hath they wrought?”

Colin:

I wrought a banana this morning. No time for anything else.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2681

“Only that my father, and his father, shall know vengeance.”

Maybe in spirit. But they dead.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2682

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2683

Colin:

That looks like an espresso maker.

Deus ex Moon Blower Upper.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2684

I do like that they don’t go too over the top with them realizing they can shoot him again.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2685

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2686

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2687

“People of Xandar, the time has come to rejoice! And renounce your paltry gods.”

Colin:

He’s monologuing because fuck Marvel.

Renounce that you’re going to die?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2688

Colin:

Hey look, Power Rangers extra is back, behind the white haired dude.

Because only like 30 people live on this planet.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2689

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2690

“Your salvation is at hand.”

You still haven’t accused anyone.

Isn’t the point of this to tell them what they did to you? You’re just showing up and telling them it’s over. That’s not vengeance.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2691

And then he shouts something that sounds a lot like gibberish. Actually, it sounds like what Howard Dean yelled at that one rally like ten years ago. (These are the kinds of references that make me feel old. But on the other hand, it was fucking insane, so people should remember it.)

Also, how did he know the language to control the stone? I’m so confused.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2692

“O-oh, child, things are gonna get easier…”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2693

“O-oh, child, things’ll get brighter.”

Colin:

And now Chris Pratt is singing because…I guess we need to have a distraction?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2694

“Listen to these words.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2695

“O-oh child.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2696

“Things are gonna get easier.”

Colin:

Why he doesn’t immediately blast him away is beyond me. People are sometimes too curious to kill their problems, and mark my words – that curiosity, without exception, will be their downfall.

Can we write a manual? How to Kill Your Problems.

“Sometimes people are too curious to kill their problems.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2697

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2698

“O-oh, child, things are gonna get brighter.”

What kind of music do they have on Xandar?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2699

“Now bring it down, hard!”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2700

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2701

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2702

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2703

“Some day, we’ll put it together and we’ll get it undone.”

Colin:

He’s being a moron. This is really killing Ronan’s vibe.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2704

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2705

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2706

“What are you doing?”

This is the best reaction ever.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2707

“Dance-off, bro.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2708

“Me and you.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2709

That face.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2710

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2711

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2712

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2713

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2714

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2715

“Gamora.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2716

I like the head shake.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2717

This is so fucking stupidly brilliant.

I love the way he turns like, “Is she gonna get in on this madness too?”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2718

“Subtle.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2719

“Take it back.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2720

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2721

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2722

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2723

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2724

“What are you doing?”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2725

“I’m distracting you, you big turd blossom.”

Colin:

I don’t even get that. Was that for the eight-year-olds in the audience who didn’t get the black light comment earlier?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2726

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2727

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2728

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2729

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2730

Colin:

Guess his hammer already had a circle in case he wanted to put this infinity stone in it.

My dick has the same hole.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2731

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2732

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2733

Maybe move the thing out of the way.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2734

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2735

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2736

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2737

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2738

Colin:

This looks like the end of the dumbest game of Quidditch ever.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2739

Can either of them handle the power of the stone? Quill, he’s expecting to die, but Ronan can just absorb that shit? We have no real inclination that he’s remotely powerful.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2740

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2741

GPOY

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2742

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2743

“OPTIMUS!!!”

Also, you guys remember cumming for the first time?

Colin:

You mean in an alien’s mouth?

Was that not implied?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2744

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2745

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2746

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2747

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2748

Colin:

Explode like the pink chick!

I say that every time I ejaculate.

I try not to. It just slips out.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2749

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2750

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2751

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2752

Space Kali Ma?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2753

This is what paper cuts feel like.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2754

I hate it when my hands turn into light.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2755

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2756

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2757

Colin:

And just like in Thor 2, we’re caught up in a raging color storm.

To be fair, I like raging color storms.

But it is crazy how they just repeat things they did before. Pretty soon, entire movies will just be repeats of shit they’ve done in earlier movies.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2758

… too easy.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2759

Seriously, you look like a Goomba who’s melting.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2760

“That could have been me.”

Why don’t you just go tackle him right now?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2761

All of this is happening inside that? So when this is all over, no one is gonna know what the fuck happened.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2762

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2763

Please just have Thriller start playing now.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2764

“OPTIMUS!!!”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2765

“Take my hand!”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2766

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2767

Reaction shots are the key to comedy.

Also, your face is fucked up.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2768

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2769

“Take my hand, Peter.”

Colin:

Oh, it’s mom. Mom came back to have cancer in space so she could tell you to touch the green chick. I REALLY understand now why old people think new movies are absurd and nonsensical.

I hate it when my mother comes back in space to tell me to touch the green chick.

Then again, I don’t need to be told to touch the green chick.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2770

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2771

This is kinda nice, albeit pretty nonsensical.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2772

Colin:

Are they standing over a space favela? What is that?

That’s the ground flying away.

Because in space, Jehovah is spelled with an M an A an R a V an E and an L.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2773

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2774

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2775

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2776

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2777

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2778

UNITY!

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2779

Colin:

By the way — this is why we have people.

But they survive the… actually, scratch that. I’m a good person.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2780

He should join in too.

Holding hands — it defeats space gems AND brings back Christmas.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2781

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2782

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2783

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2784

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2785

Negative color.

I guess we are technically Disney right now.

Also, your face is coming apart.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2786

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2787

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2788

That’s a lot of veins you have to surge through.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2789

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2790

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2791

Colin:

They all get ready for the circle jerk.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2792

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2793

Just like Michelangelo painted.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2794

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2795

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2796

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2797

He should grab a Groot stick too.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2798

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2799

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2800

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2801

Colin:

Funny how a tiny raccoon was what put them over the edge.

That’s usually what does it for me. Even if I try to think about baseball.

Colin:

The Giants won.

Have they? Because Jotunheim.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2802

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2803

He’s the Grinch in this equation.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2804

“You’re mortal. How?”

Colin:

Ronan is really an awful villain.

They’re all mortal, are they not?

Is Ronan NOT mortal?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2805

“You said it yourself, bitch. We’re the Guardians of the Galaxy.”

You look like you have SHIV.

Never share Space Gems, kids.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2806

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2807

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2808

Colin:

I don’t think a villain should be making that face.

There’s no way Ronan’s mother didn’t walk in on him jackin’ it. That’s probably why he’s doing all this.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2809

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2810

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2811

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2812

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2813

I want my arm to shoot purple fire.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2814

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2815

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2816

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2817

Why does it always lift them off the ground?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2818

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2819

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2820

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2821

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2822

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2823

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2824

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2825

Colin:

Explode the villain, secure the stone. Praise Marvel as you might, this whole franchise could have taken place in DC in the 80s. It’s just a bunch of crazies trying to get rocks.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2826

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2827

This is how I caught Gengar.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2828

Colin:

Good thing you had that special Infinity Stone Poké Ball.

That was given to them by the head of Xand Co. for saving them from Space Giovanni.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2829

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2830

“That… was pretty awkward.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2831

Colin:

Never know when you need to rub one out. Dave Bautista heard the muse.

I don’t even know what to say. I was not expecting that. That was perfect.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2832

“Hey… you… you wanna make out?”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2833

“I wanna touch your space titties so bad right now.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2834

“Well, well, well, quite the light show.”

Hey, you were… standing there the entire time.

Where exactly was that forest area that he killed all those guys in?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2835

“Ain’t this sweet. But you got some business to attend to before all the nookie nookie starts.”

Colin:

Yondu’s trying to get paid. Good for you, Yondu. I like him. He knows what’s up.

I appreciate that he’s aware of the fucking that’s going to happen and will allow it. Most people are assholes about it.

Colin:

Yondu likes to fondue.

Taste the chocolate sauce.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2836

“Peter, you can’t.”

“You gotta reconsider this, Yondu.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2837

“I don’t know who you’re selling this to, but the only way the universe can survive is if you give it to the Nova Corps.”

Can’t you play the “Are you fucking serious? You saw what it can do” card?

Or get the Nova Corps to give them money? Because I’m sure they’d pay 40 million units just to make sure they have it.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2838

“I may be as pretty as an angel, but I sure as hell ain’t one.”

Great line for him.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2839

“Hand it over, son.”

Remember when you wanted to kill him?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2840

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2841

Colin:

Wrong hand.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2842

Where’d she get her outfit from?

It looks like it’s out of the Hugh Hefner Smoking Jacket Collection.

But actually, did the Ravagers just have that on board their ship for her? Does she carry a wardrobe with her? Do any of them?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2843

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2844

What’s that symbol on her jacket?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2845

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2846

Colin:

Good face. I really like Michael Rooker.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2847

You’re not gonna check it?

Colin:

Total switch. He used the wrong hand and gave it up too easily.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2848

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2849

“Yondu –”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2850

“Do not open that orb. You know that. Right?”

Smart.

“You’ve seen what it does to people?”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2851

Colin:

He’s one of my favorite characters in this movie. I can’t wait to see where he goes on my list of favorite characters.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2852

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2853

“Yeah, Quill turned out okay.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2854

“Probably good that we didn’t deliver him to his dad like we was supposed to.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2855

“Ehh. That guy was a jackass.”

Colin:

We get to find out about papa later. The guy made of light. Sounds like a jackass, for that matter.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2856

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2857

“He is gonna be so pissed when he realizes I switched out the orb on him.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2858

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2859

“He was gonna kill you, Peter.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2860

“Oh, I know. But he was about the only family I had.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2861

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2862

“No. He wasn’t.”

Colin:

She better not be a half-sister or some shit. Cause they haven’t banged and that worries me.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2863

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2864

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2865

Colin:

Don’t get all sappy on me now. 

Oh, was he not gonna stick that up his butt? Did I misread that?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2866

Why pick up just that one? There are like forty potential Groots on the ground. And he’s just gonna put that in dirt. This is the artificial insemination of Groot-making. How do you know which is the right Groot Juice?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2867

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2868

Colin:

The kindling of a friendship. Also, sticks and stones.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2869

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2870

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2871

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2872

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2873

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2874

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2875

This must have looked hilarious on set.

Colin:

Dave Bautista petting a raccoon.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2876

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2877

“Why would you even know this?”

“When we arrested you, we noticed an anomaly in your nervous system, so we had it checked out.”

“I’m not Terran?”

“You’re half Terran.”

Colin:

Weird that Glenn Close, the president or whatever, is talking to Quill about his ancestry.

Ironic because our president is a Muslim who wasn’t born in this country.

Colin:

“Birth certificate? How ’bout I show you this long-form DICK?” 

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2878

“Your mother was of Earth. Your father—”

Colin:

What’s this chick looking at?

“Is her public hair green?”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2879

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2880

“Well, he’s something very ancient we’ve never seen here before.”

But I bet next movie someone will have seen it.

Colin:

I’m still betting that the next movie features the live version of that space monster with the skull. Cause Benicio still needs a live one.

“That could be why you were able to hold the stone for as long as you did.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2881

“On behalf of the Nova Corps, we’d like to express our profound gratitude.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2882

And we’d like to extend to you a laurel, and a hearty handshake.

“For your help in saving Xandar.”

Colin:

We all know what this is and where they all have to go now. I’m going to be upset if this movie doesn’t end the right way.

Why do I always assume it’s gonna be the Departed elevator?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2883

John C. Reilly has something to show you.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2884

Colin:

Oh, sweetie got a NICE little skirt on. Mm. Guess it’s sort of a dress.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2885

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2886

“Your wife and child shall rest well, knowing that you have avenged them.”

“Yes. Of course, Ronan was only a puppet.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2887

“It’s really Thanos I need to kill.”

Colin:

Look at the people in the background. Marvel really doesn’t know how to have extras who aren’t looking at screens or walking to nowhere.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2888

Colin:

Revenge just keeps going. He’s going to murder everything. Can Dave Bautista have a movie? Like the Marvel version of Machete?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2889

“We tried to keep it as close to the original as possible.”

And you got the specs from when he was arrested?

And does that include the semen or not?

Colin:

Isn’t his ship basically exactly the same as the Ravagers’ ships?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2890

“Salvaged as much as we could.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2891

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2892

“Thank you.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2893

“I have a family. They’re alive because of you.”

Can I slow clap this moment right now? Because he didn’t say, “No… thank you”?

Colin:

I don’t know about you, but I’m over the moon because I didn’t hear that.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2894

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2895

“Your criminal records have also been expunged.”

All of them? Or just on Xandar?

Colin:

Yeah, I’m pretty sure they’re wanted elsewhere. Didn’t Dave Bautista do a LOT of murder?

Didn’t Dave Bautista Do a LOT of Murder?

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2896

“However I have to warn you against breaking any laws in the future.”

Colin:

I’m glad that John C. Reilly is a person in things.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2897

“Question: what if I see something that I wanna take and it belongs to someone else?”

“Then you’ll be arrested.”

“But what if I want it more than the person who has it?”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2898

“Still illegal.”

“That doesn’t follow. No, I want it more, sir.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2899

“What, I can’t have a discussion with this gentleman?”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2900

“What if someone does something irksome, and I decide to remove his spine?”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2901

“That – that’s – that’s actually murder. One of the worst crimes of all. So – also illegal.”

Colin:

I would pay for a show in which John C. Reilly explains the legality of certain things. Like, there are a lot of laws that I don’t know about very well that I think I’d be willing to get to know if he was explaining the penalties and stuff.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2902

“Hmm.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2903

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2904

“They’ll be fine. I’m gonna keep an eye on them.”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2905

“You?”

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2906

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2907

“Yeah. Me.”

Colin:

It’s good that they started out friendly with the whole code name thing too, because that makes their current friendly relationship more believable. 

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2908

Somehow that didn’t get burned in the fire.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2909

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2910

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2911

And now the voiceover is gonna happen on screen as he reads it. Because that’s really the only way they can do this scene.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2912

Colin:

People reading stuff as the person who wrote it reads it aloud. Not super into this. Why don’t they ever do close ups on the letters anymore, like in Casablanca in the rain?

“Peter, I know these last few months have been hard for you. But I’m going to a better place. And I will be okay. And I will always be with you. You are the light of my life. My precious son. My little Star Lord. Love, Mom.”

Colin:

SHE called him Star-Lord? WHAT? So that’s not his codename, it was her name for him?

Rosebud.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2913

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2914

Colin:

Grandpa’s probably dead by now and everyone’s still probably wondering when Peter’s little kid skeleton is gonna turn up. It’s a twisted world we live in.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2915

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2916

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2917

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2918

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2919

I ain’t gotta tell you what this song is. You’ve heard it a dozen times in movies before.

Colin:

Good song. Famous song.

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2920

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2921

Guardians of the Galaxy - 2922

Colin:

Thematic. Not bad that they cut to her as Tammi starts singing.
