UniKoRn's diary of insanity

I've seen three movies this week. Guardians of the Galaxy wasn't as great as people make it out.
bishi, keh, smirk
In the last week I've seen Lucy, Guardians of the Galaxy and Hercules. All for free with work.

Despite Guardians of the Galaxy only being out for around a week, it had already been over hyped and my expectations were really high. So I found it incredibly underwhelming. It's definitely enjoyable and amusing but sometimes it felt a bit try hard because I had no context for the characters personalities. With other Marvel franchises, I already know a bit about the characters and what to expect from them, so I guess I have more of an attachment to them going into the film versions. Whereas Guardians of the Galaxy is a relatively new franchise, with which I haven't connected with in comic or cartoon form. Of course baddies like Thanos are familiar.

Lucy wasn't a bad film but I wouldn't say rush out and see it. I think I more enjoyed it from a philosophical and scientific angle, where it got me thinking about the potential of the human mind.

Hercules I went into with very low expectations and so it turned out to be pretty good. Although I was hoping for more mythical beast battles and magic powers rather than Hercules is just a strong dude who can take on a whole army.
