Pop culture to you we bring.

Since 1996

Thank you, James Gunn!

Before we start giving credit for the latest (and presumably last) installment of the lovable and quirky Guardians, here's a little info:

If you haven't seen the movie yet, you can read on with peace of mind - there are no spoilers! We don't want to incur the wrath of Drax!

So cassette into the tape deck and off we go to the year 2014 when the first part of the trilogy flickered across the screen in domestic cinemas and people feverishly awaited each new film MCU, which was now successfully established by films such as Iron Man (2008), Captain America (2011) or even the first Avengers (2012).

So it's time to expand the universe, and what would fit better than a cosmic bunch of heroes thrown together? The director was James Gunn - who had already moved into not-so-serious superhero territory with "Super - Shut Up, Crime!

As we know today, it was the perfect choice and the Guardians have won a place in the hearts of fans.



Where does the journey lead to after Endgame

For better or worse, "Avengers: Endgame" was in many respects the highlight of the MCU and the franchise is not really getting on track (until now).

So it's all the more pleasing that the Guardians, at the end of Gunn's work at Marvel, once again fire off a veritable fireworks display of action, humor and heart.

From the beginning, the story unfolds with a gripping and emotional intensity. The characters we have come to know and love in the previous films are developed further and new facets of their personalities are revealed. The relationships between the Guardians are at the center of the plot and offer both heartbreaking and humorous moments.

The visual effects are stunning and the space landscapes are brought to life in an impressive way, and the background soundtrack is perfect, as always. Although we still mourn a bit the songs from the first part. ;)




Whenever Vin Diesel appears in a movie, in this case again as the voice of Groot, there's no getting around a "family joke". And he can't really get rid of the stigma in Guardians either, because in addition to the impressive action and spectacular effects, the film also manages to deal with profound topics.

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" poses questions about family, identity and the place of each individual in the universe. In doing so, the film succeeds in exploring these themes in an engaging and moving way, without losing the lightness and fun that characterize the series.

And now hand on heart:

Who could still remember the scene from the first part (see picture above)? Now we finally know who "Lylla" is.




Overall, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is a captivating and rousing adventure that will delight fans of the previous films. The film manages to bring out the best of the series while introducing new and exciting elements. James Gunn has once again proven his talent as a director and screenwriter, creating a film that entertains and touches in equal measure.

Whether you're a longtime fan of the MCU or a newcomer to this universe, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" offers an unforgettable cinematic experience. Look forward to a roller coaster ride full of action, humor and emotion that will sweep you along from start to finish.
