Dosk insists that every single thing I say is a spoiler -- even the stupid bits.

So, uhm, Spooky and I went to the Silver Screen in Folkestone (old-school independent cinemas rock*) to watch Guardians of the Galaxy. Watch this movie. When I headed into the ladies' after the show, I had an undeniable urge to groove. Grooving in a toilet cubical is harder than you think as you manage your underwear. If you couldn't tell, I was manic at the time (brain meds, caffeine overdose, and my own unique personality). I also grooved in the Oxfam Bookshop afterwards - 80s dance moves to a mental soundtrack of Moonage Dreaming. Honestly, the soundtrack to this movie is just so... amazing... an integral part of the whole movie. If you wondered how an intergalactic theif-adventurer would dance their way through the Temple of Doom (not the actual Temple of Doom) well, you wouldn't see Dr Jones doing it.

I'm seriously considering Buying. A. Movie. Soundtrack.



Yes, you read that. This is an entire movie built on a mix tape.

Annoyingly, Spooky knows nothing of Ziggy Stardust inter alia. This does not make a sentient tree dancing to the Jackson 5 any less amusing.

I don't think spoiler cuts help when you can't tell what other people consider spoiler-ish.

Hey, lets deal with this the other way:

People who have seen the movie will never forget the time when [character] distracts [another character] from [doing something] using expressive [verb/noun] so that [the team-mate] can [verb] the [another character].
Well, okay, I won't forget it. *shrugs* The bit when [character] tells [another character] to obtain the [object] to make the [necessary widget] when actually it was just a [noun]. And the [character] who can - on a genetic level - process a [rhetorical device]. The way [blank] words can express [anything].

Uh, so that is my spoiler-free review.

There was also a big-screen showing of the new Doctor Who trailer, which meant that I could see new and interesting details to share with the dosk. the dalek eye-stalk reflects three people walking towards it. Interesting?


*yes, this is an endorsement of any cinema that is not a multiplex and actually contributes to your town's economy not sending the money all back to the mothership. Just go and give yours some love.

Bonus points for red velvet curtain walls, dress circles, tear off ticket machines, reasonably priced drinks and usherettes. Okay. They don't have the last one, but it would be cool if they did. And intermissions. And creaky local ad reels. For most of my childhood, the local cinema (Silver Screen in Dover) in town ran the same set of adverts every showing for years. It probably had been something to do with how both cinemas wound up as the only/last 35mm film cinemas in the country. Personally, I just loved the way everything in my world changes except Billy Hollis offering to show you his range of Volkswagen motor cars)

    You're right, I never will - I laughed so hard I actually curled right up in my seat. That was a most fun film!
    • teefury.com had the sweetest baby!groo t-shirt yesterday.

      seriously cute. baby groo and the walkman (not wearing it just boogieing down). Uh, I did public boogieing after this film, in the town centre (and in a bookshop) (retrospective eep!)
      • Awwwww. Groot and Drax were my favourite characters, and the baby Groot boogieing at the end was so adorable!

        I did a little boogie on the way out the cinema, so you are not alone.
