Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
James Gunn is an mother flippin' genius - he has infused an obscure Marvel property, Guardians of the Galaxy, with his unique brand of humor and comedic tone and created the best space opera to light up theaters since Star Wars. The film is all kinds of awesome and the grue-crew share their favorite moments, their most loved characters and most cherished songs included in the film's sound track. WE ARE GROOT!
What Have You Been Watching: Sharknado 2: The Second One (2014)
