Monday Movie Magic—Guardians of the Galaxy

With the release of Volume 2 last week (it’s amazing, by the way) I thought it would be apropos to revisit the first.

Guardians of the Galaxy

In my opinion, this is the first Marvel Studios movie where the studio just let the director have fun. I mean, I’m sure there was some direction, but you could tell James Gunn just had fun. The story ranged from typical team-up tropes to the fantastical and bizarre, and the colors were just brilliant.

Obviously the music was arguably the most important part of this movie, so I tried to mimic the 70s style that the music evoked.
