Yes, I am absolutely a Marvel’s Fan Girl.
My favorite Marvel’s movies are the Guardians of the Galaxy movies – both of them.
I was infatuated with both Rocket and Groot since the first movie.
Of course, I love baby Groot like crazy.
When the second movie came out – with that EPIC opening, I was overjoyed!
Seriously, if you have not seen it yet, it has the best movie opening of any movie of all time.
My husband and I were lucky enough to get to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 a day before it opened.
This is because my husband works for Mars Chocolate, and Mars has a connection to Marvels.
No, it was not a red carpet situation, but we had a ball.
It sure was special to me.
I decided that I wanted a baby Groot carved from wood.
My husband found the name of a person who does wood carvings and within two weeks, I had my Groot!
Some of you may know I have an affinity for trees as it is – so for me falling for Groot was natural.
Having my own Groot carved from wood, priceless!
We adore the heck out of Rocket too.
My husband and I joke about how our pup Lyla reminds us of Rocket, or Rocket reminds us of Lyla, either way.
I know, I have no shame. An adult who simply turns to mush over these characters seems rather silly I know.
I suppose if I had a crush on Starlord it would be more understandable.
However, I know that I am not alone.
Who else out there melts when they hear Baby Groot say
“I am Groot.” ?
Yes, I will buy the movie when it comes out, and play it on a loop.
The two Guardians of the Galaxy movies are my favorites right up there with the Lord of the Rings movies.
While this is not a movie review I do want to state a few reasons why I love the Guardians movies so much.
*** NO SPOILERS ***
The soundtrack simply can not be beaten! If you are a millennial or upward you will truly appreciate the music throughout the movie.
Of course, there is great humor. I am particular when it comes to humor and I just love the type of comedy in the Guardians movies.
The feels – the emotional connections, the riffs, the nuisances are so true to real life. There are family dynamics played out through the movie, some that will surprise you.
I think one of my favorite things about the Guardians movies is the innate sense of innocence. It is truly one of the few films I have seen that makes me believe that we all have an inner child living within us.
There is non-stop action, you will certainly not be bored.
The cinematography is excellent as you can expect in any Marvels movie and I love how colorful the film is throughout.
For me today my happiness is my wood carved baby Groot.
Thank you, Vicki, for your talent, and for creating my baby Groot!
If you live in the Topeka area and want some wood carving done, give me a holler I am happy to send you her way!
What makes you happy?
