Marvel Movie Marathon – Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 1

Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 1 (2014)

Week 10 – October 30, 2017

A bit of a confession: I didn’t come to Marvel movies because of the comics, I came to them because of the link to Disney. Therefore, I didn’t have any idea this was a Marvel movie when it was first publicized. I thought it was just another Disney movie.
