    I mean, it wasn't bad, but I'm just not seeing what everyone else is. The humor wasn't that funny nor witty, the CGI was nothing special, the action scenes were average, and there were no memorable scenes that made me want to rewatch on youtube. The bonding between the characters seem genuine, I'll give them that but people are saying it might be the greatest superhero movie of all time, it isn't even the best superhero movie this year, it definitely wasn't better than Winter Soldier.

    I f*ckin' LOVED GOTG.

    I wouldn't say it's overrated, the movie just has so much personality that it just garners that kind of love.

    Winter soldier was a whole different ball game by comparison, it was a thriller, GOTG was an action comedy. Plus GOTG did in one film what it took the rest of the MCU to do in 6 films. Introducing each character, and building up their history and motives, and put it all together in a fraction of the run time.

    And if you get the comics, you get the movie, and hearing Blue Swede in the trailer alone made me squeal like a fan girl. lol

    GOTG is amazing, and that's not just opinion. if you didn't enjoy it, watch it again, and then again. Clockwork Orange that ****, until you like it. :p

    My point is, some movies you gotta give more than one chance, not everyone likes the same thing, but there's lots of movies i didn't know how to feel about until I watched them more than once.

    ftr I didn't get it either. It wasn't bad or awful but i didn't walk out of the theater thinking "wow, that was an awesome fun ride!" I thought a lot of the praise was really over the top.

    I thought it was pretty awesome. Overrated? Idk. You have to take it for what it is, more on the humor and entertainment side than the usual action and people exploding the whole time kind of superhero movie. I enjoyed it, one of my favorites but I can understand the skepticism. Personally, I wish there was one more additional fight scene with the main villain.
