Day 22: A Movie You Feel Didn’t Live Up to the Hype
Guardians of the Galaxy
Before everyone starts leaving hate comments, let me explain.
I didn’t see this movie until it had been released on DVD. By then, everyone had been raving about how brilliant it is and how I HAVE to see it. I thought, “OK, it must be pretty gosh darn amazing then!”
THAT was the hype it had to live up to.
I also looked forward to seeing the movie that made Karen Gillan shave her head. Somewhere along the line of awaiting the movie, I was led to believe she would be the main villain. Obviously, I was disappointed to find she wasn’t.
I’d only seen one trailer, and knew nothing of the comics, so I couldn’t even think “well, at least it was true to canon.”
Lastly, I’ve only seen it the one time.
I fully acknowledge that my disappointment with Guardians of the Galaxy has nothing to do with the movie itself, but rather with what I was made to believe about the movie before I saw it.
And now it’s time I gave it another chance.
What movie do you feel didn’t live up to the hype?
