First of all anyone intending to see this movie, there is an extra scene after the end credits.
Guardians of the Galaxy presents quite a treat for Doctor Who and Star Trek fans as it featured Karen Gillan (Doctor Who’s Amy Pond) and Zoe Saldana (Star Trek’s Uhura) in which their characters are sisters. So Amy and Uhura are sisters here.
Of the two sisters only Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is one of the said guardians and Guardians of the Galaxy turns out to be a very fun movie.
Quite intriguing opening scene of Peter Quill as a boy before we see him grow up to become Star Lord as Chris Pratt (Peter Quill/Star Lord) did well to carry this fun ride of a film.
A definitely suitable movie for anyone who wants to have fun filled for parts of a day before eventually going back to normality.
Guardians of the Galaxy was reviewed in At The Movies in which Margaret Pomerantz gave it four stars and David Stratton three stars with the latter saying it is “a cheerfully mindless affair aimed squarely at fans of the comics and the young at heart in general”.August 18, 2014 at 9:43 pm #189790
The Sydney Sunday Telegraph on August 10 had Nick Dent mentioning Doctor Who in his review of Guardians of the Galaxy by saying Doctor Who’s Karen Gillan.
Dent however was not impressed with Guardians of the Galaxy as it came with the headline “A bit of a waste of space” and Dent giving it the verdict of “Space junk” and it is an opinion that I do not agree with.February 22, 2015 at 11:17 pm #206588August 28, 2015 at 9:19 am #215488Guardians of the Galaxy: Origins!
First episode of the shorts leading to the Guardians of the Galaxy animated series.

We Are The World Tree:
Season 1, Episode 16.
Thanks to a little manipulation by his father, Peter and the other Guardians goes in search of the Cosmic Seed and end up in Asgard where they meet up with Thor, Loki and Heimdall.
Not bad hunt for the Cosmic Seed and how it ultimately made Peter to leave his father and resume his travels with the Guardians.<b></b><i></i><u></u>April 11, 2016 at 1:36 am #221249
Come and Gut Your Love:
Season 1, Episode 17.
Broadcast on April 3 2016. Although Nebula is not in this episode, movie Nebula Karen Gillan had exactly six years earlier made her debut as Amy Pond in Doctor Who.
Peter takes a ship that used to belong to his father in his youth where he meets the ship’s AI Rora who is in love with Peter’s father.
Quite fun as Peter pretends to be his father to Rora.
Things sure gone awry when Rora eventually learns the truth especially her hatred of Peter’s mother Meredith.
To make things worst two of Peter’s exes comes along and demands that he makes them his princesses.
Well played out leading to the cliffhanger with the Guardians placed under arrest by Peter’s father and Peter stating that he thought the truth was supposed to set you free.<b></b><i></i><u></u>April 17, 2016 at 9:53 pm #221277

Asgard War Part Two: Rescue Me<b></b><i></i><u></u>:
Season 1, Episode 19.
The Asgard War conclusion sees Thanos abducting Peter.
Quite a mean trick with Thanos getting Peter in a memory about his mother and in a Wizard of Oz-scenario other people in this memory are human representations of his fellow Guardians.
Not bad conclusion to this story and intriguing this episode ends with Peter dreaming that the Cosmic Seed is apparently on Earth!
