For this weekend since I have been left at home and unsupervised, I am going through 20 MCU movies in the MCU’s chronological order, starting from Captain America: The First Avenger through to Ant-Man & The Wasp.
Starting off with the dancing thief Peter Quill as he steals just a boring old orb, until someone else gets involved and wants the orb for his employer Ronan the Accuser. In the ensuing battle Peter escapes with the orb, his mentor asks him to hand over the orb as well, instead of doing so he decides to go on his own and sell it. Except that when anyone hears that Ronan wants it, they decline any interest.
Next we see Gamora enter as she goes after the orb, the scuffle that ensues attracts the attention of both Rocket and Groot, and eventually all 4 of them get tagged and bagged dumped into a space prison, where we see Drax, who when recognising Gamora threatens her death.
Needing to escape they hatch a plan and needing various items (including a prosthetic leg) they manage to do so and begin making their way to a place called Nowhere to a man known as the collector to see the orb. Only to find out that the orb isn’t quite what they thought it was.
Holy crap was this a good movie. I love it intensely. The soundtrack, the action scenes, the graphics, the dialog and the inter-personal behaviours and jesting. Everything just works. It’s like a real bunch of people that have come together and (mostly) accept each other. The actor and actresses that got selected for this movie are the perfect ones.
Just watch this movie, ok.
