As Above/So Below teaser

With a late August release date and very little fanfare, my expectations going into this movie were exceedingly low.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” — A Slice of SciFi Review

Guardians of the Galaxy

When I first heard that Marvel was adding Guardians of the Galaxy to their Cinematic Universe lineup, my initial reaction was along the lines of “What the… huh?” Even after I’d recovered a few bruised synapses, I couldn’t figure where they’d go with that.
