Guardians of the Galaxy ★★★★★

Guardians of the Galaxy is filled to the brim with eye candy visuals and overlapping character arcs (as expected from a Marvel offering). But it doesn't matter all that much, for each one of the characters is engaging and scene-stealing in their own, special way. Also, it's breathtakingly funny, and surprisingly, sharply, emotionally resonant. A sizzling soundtrack and boundless, raucous piles of energy add to the fun. The title of "King of the Blockbusters 2014" is a well-deserved accolade.
