Guardians of the Galaxy seems to prove that comic book movies are reverting back to the way they were before the likes of Spiderman/Dark Knight/Iron Man.
There's no substance. No development. Characters are flat and static. It's just two hours of incessant action that we have all seen before. I didn't care about the characters because none of them truly had any kind of internal journey. With the exception of one really funny bit, the raccoon was written to appeal to elementary school kids. Chris Pratt shines but it will be a very long time before I venture out for a Marvel movie again.
You know when you hear a group of friends say something ridiculous like "our lives are so funny! We should make a movie about it because of all of the funny dialogue we come up with!"? This is the crappy movie that would result from 90% of such conversations.
