Legendary Picture’s Godzilla tops my list. The kid in me that loved Shōwa and Heisei films enjoyed it. The redesign was interesting and the origin story was satisfying. Looking forward to a sequel and a possible crossover with the Pacific Rim franchise!
Captain America: The Winter Soldier was more enjoyable than the original in my humble opinion. The action sequences and gadgets satisfied this geek. It was a near perfect adaptation of the original comic story arc. My only complaint is Arnim Zola didn’t have a vessel befitting his genius.
Guardians of the Galaxy was perfect! The characters felt real and had a spark. There was a nice balance of comedy, action, cast chemistry, Easter Eggs and science fiction. Part of me wants to see more Redneck Space Pirates in films/television thanks to Rooker’s performance.
