    I use to have a Marvel Unlimited subscription. It was good for reading old comics that I no longer have or reading an old arc that I never got around to reading way back when. However it was not good for keeping up with current comics.
    I would go with Comixology over Marvel Unlimited if you are looking for a digital subscription. You will basically get the same comics as Marvel Unlimited and also be able to branch outside of Marvel as well.

    GOG2 definitely threw me off.

    `There's just too much to grasp in one viewing.

    I'd give it a B/B-. Good 3rd act. Tried too hard to be funny and cute.
    A lot of the easter eggs are really obscure references. Unless you've read a lot of Marvel comics, it is going to go over the average fans head.

    I'm sure I'll end up voting good but sensory overload for an old guy.

    I really want to go but with it being so nice this weekend I think I will be outside most of it. Hopefully next week!

    Guardians was excellent. I was dead tired and followed the huge amount of things they were juggling.
    Some reviews complain that it's slower in the middle, but it needed to slow down to set up the third act. It's extremely well done and a ton of fun. The payoffs are great!

    Michael Rooker is amazing. He plays that kind of character soooo well.

    I hope to go see it this weekend. Where has Trigger been hiding? Wonder if he finished Legion yet.

    That's fair, too. There is a LOT going on visually and story-wise.
    I'm really impressed that they pulled it off, and made the Ego thing make sense.

    Great to hear! I LOVED the first Guardians (might be my most watched Marvel movie) so this has been highly anticipated by me.

    Haha, not hiding, just distracted let's say. Been at Orlando/Disney World all week with the fam. Just got back and plan to see Guardians sometime this weekend for sure. As for Legion, yes, I am finally done as I finished last weekend. Plan on posting a full review on Monday. Definitely was very good overall, but did still have some faltering moments.

    Saw it last night....never followed Guardians but liked it better than the first one and really enjoyed it. More character development and I liked the humor. Even Kurt Russell still has it for finding a way to be funny when it's not even a funny scene.

    Correct on Rooker...he was very good in The Walking Dead.

    Ha, forgot about that...he pops every now and then when flipping channels.

    I think I need to watch Mall Rats again in general.

    I think Michael Rooker is one of the more underrated character actors in Hollywood. I saw the movie Thursday night and enjoyed it immensely. I really appreciated that he was given a chance to shine and ran away with the opportunity.

    Good to see Rooker not be a frothing at the mouth racist for once. :)

    I read up on Ego before I saw it, kinda glad I did, made it easier to understand what was going on. A few great songs, but overall the soundtrack isn't as great.

    GotG1's soundtrack was phenomenal, but I thought this one was amazing too.

    Just for those who haven't seen GOG2 yet, just like every other marvel movie stay until the very end of the credits there are 5 post credits teaser scenes.
