Tell me why this movie is good without using the words "fun" "dc" or "bait"
It's a properly-structured story with setup, buildup, climax, and resolution all neatly in place. It has a simple but consistent central theme. The characters are believable, interesting and likable. It has humor, action, and drama that feel natural and not forced.
I never liked comics but i just loved the characters, especially rocket and the MC
Love story it's there but not enough to take away focus from the main events.
Got a chuckle out of me a good number of times.
Looks pretty good.
The only bad parts are that facepaint doesn't turn humans into aliens and i just can't give a shit about a character that only says i am groot
I didn't much like how they handled Gamora.
Why was she always in peril. Seriously Im supposed to believe those guys in the prison where a threat to her? IN the comics she walked off a solar flare to the face
It had a happy sense of adventure to it about a group of misfits coming together to stop villain man. It generally knew what to focus on and what to leave alone. Some creative action scenes that use the sci fi universe helped a lot.
>Is "fun" a trigger word? I get that its pretty minimal in terms of describing a thing but so is calling something "shit" and we use that all the time.
The thing about it is that people will use "fun" to excuse anything that's cringe worthy or really corny
>You didn't like Jim Gaffigans Hot Pocket joke? YOU HATE FUN!
Because it's a popcorn movie that can literally be watched at any time, regardless of the mood you're in. Incidentally, I was watching the "We are Groot" scene when I saw this thread while browsing.
>that can literally be watched at any time, regardless of the mood you're in.
Speak for yourself, I can only watch it if I'm in the mood to get some ass and the girl I'm with likes it...because its a girl movie
>not cringing at space hipsters dancing to le retro meme tunes how quirky omg
Not but it's an excuse for it not to be serious. It's obviously an attempt at comedy.
What specifically was bad about it? Bonus points if you don't use the word "meme".
I honestly preferred that to the whole power of friendship bs that came right after.
>It's obviously an attempt at comedy.
Not all attempts at comedy achieve their goal
The thing is it's try hard, it's trying to be retro and quirky and appeal to a certain type of person and that's really just not funny
Look man, it's a Marvel movie where
>the characters aren't acting out of character
>the story makes sense
>the writing isn't by Joss Whedon
>the show runners aren't affiliated with Fox in any way
What more could you possibly ask for?
>and that's really just not funny to me
Fixed. To say it didn't appeal to you is one thing. To say that it was bad BECAUSE it didn't appeal to you is full retard. Never go full retard, anon.
>how dare they make a comedy sketch that i personally don't find funny but a lot of other people genuinely do
He kicked a rat in the beginning, didn't he? i remember laughing at that
Dude, the whole movie was basically how I imagined my group running a d20 Modern space adventure game would go. Laughs, thrills, spills, feels, and a Good End.
I laughed at the rat kick, too.
Silly space adventures with likable characters, good action, and a good sense of humour.
It's also fun.
I'm seeing a theme with people who don't like this movie
>le le le le lel le le le le le le
I thought I've been here too long but you people are literally incapable of expressing your opinion without ironic shitposting
It isn't ironic when it's true. This movie is disgustingly trying so hard to appeal to wanna be hipster 20 somethings who think retro irony is cool and mistake quirk for humor
In a nutshell, it's for the Adventure Time/Regular Show crowd, skinny jeans and bid side burns, etc
*love to use
>wanna be hipster 20 somethings who think retro irony is cool and mistake quirk for humor
>the Adventure Time/Regular Show crowd, skinny jeans and bid side burns, etc
Which means /co/ has been invaded by that fauna. Oh god...
>I don't like this product because [inserts preconceived notion of people who enjoy it based on stereotypes they've absorbed through social media]
>Fun doesn't really mean anything
a source of enjoyment, amusement, diversion, etc
pleasure, gaiety, or merriment
jest or sport (esp in the phrases in or for fun)
(facetious, ironic) fun and games, amusement; frivolous activity
(informal) like fun
(adverb) quickly; vigorously

(modifier) full of amusement, diversion, gaiety, etc: a fun sport
verb funs, funning, funned
(intransitive) ( informal) to act in a joking or sporting manner
I don't even follow what the thread of this conversation is about. It's like two bots talking at each other given a corpus of common /co/ words. I can't make heads or tails of it.
Well shit, we might very well be, but what the hell brought that comment to bear? I mean, if you don't like it then you don't like it. You don't really need to justify your not liking it, nor do you need to resort to attacking anyone that DOES like it. Just hide the thread, man. No one is forcing you to stay.
>Just hide the thread, man
It's my own thread
It was one of the most well received cape movies and defied a lot of expectations, especially /co/'s. Therefore the /co/ntrarian backlash against it has to be even worse than usual. It just took them a while to decide to use the terms 'meme' (by the way, name a meme that appeared in this movie that was a meme before the movie and not after) and 'quirky' incorrectly to describe what they don't like about it because they have no substantive opinion, just a gut reaction because normies like it.
>It's sad. You keep reaching for the whole HIPSTER aspect and it just sounds like some lonely asshole in his 40s that doesn't get that things change.
>Get the fuck over yourself.
>Just makes you sound like one of those "born in the wrong generation" try-hards.
Coming from a guy defending a movie trying to cash in on the whole retro trend...you have no argument
The nonobvious semiotics of the pegging scene leverage surface crude humour into a superlative, subversive encouragement of deeper, independent thought on the implications, positive and negative, of non-normative intimate relations.
Grease was an 80s movies that exploited the fuck out of the 80s retro-boner for the 50s. See also: 50s style diners exploding during the 80s. Also a movie for girls.
You're either embarrassing yourself from ignorance or hypocrisy here.
