Guardians of the Galaxy blew up last weekend, with an impressive $94 million debut, making it the biggest August opening ever.

Besides being a hilarious tribute to space action films, the summer blockbuster opens the door to awesome sequels and cements comedic hunk Chris Pratt as the Internet’s most favorite celebrity. Move over Jennifer Lawrence, here comes something meatier!

Today Brian Sweeney joins us to take a look at why Guardians of the Galaxy is a fun success while the film Green Lantern fails miserably.

  1. OMG – saw it today and it is AWESOME! I can see why the gays are gaga over Chris Pratt….even if he wasn’t ripped I’d still be crushing on him…give me a goofy white guy any day. Great writing and as a comic fan I will confess I did not read the comics but I appreciate the bringing to life of comic characters. Thanos was so cool! Great pacing and great character development. Not sure a cassette tape would sound good after so many years but great nostalgia. I’m sure I’ll see it again 🙂

    Why do I have a feeling this is going to be another Fausto (in Brian Sweeney’s words) going to the movies to leer at men podcasts. 🙂 Love you Fausto! Can’t wait to listen. I have seen the movie twice and I have the soundtrack and it is everything I have ever wanted out of a comic book movie!

    So this is perhaps one of the best Feast of Fun episodes I have ever listened to. As you know, I love when Brian Sweeney comes on the show because he always plays the straight man, both literally and figuratively. And just as I expected Fausto gushed over the sexiness that is Chris Pratt. Brian managed to keep the train on the rails and supplied some very good insight on Guardians of the Galaxy. I have seen it twice now and Brian’s interpretation of the ending was spot on. I found the movie very sad at points. As Brian pointed out, these were five people who were alone in the universe but somehow found each other. The relationship between Groot and Rocket was very sweet. I look forward to the continuing adventures of Peter Quill, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot, especially when they meet the Avengers in a later film. I do believe this is my absolute favorite superhero movie, even over The Avengers. Here’s my ranking of Top 5:

    1. Guardians of the Galaxy
    2. X-Men: Days of Future Past
    3. Batman: The Dark Knight Rises
    4. The Avengers
    5. X-Men 2: X-Men United

    Fausto, Marc and Brian, thank you for another great episode. I love all the guests you have on Feast of Fun but nothing beats the chemistry between the three of you guys. You guys complement each other so well. Can’t wait to hear you guys again! XOXO!

  4. Fun show! I haven’t seen the film yet (don’t know if I will), but it’s amazing listening to Brian Sweeney talking about science fiction! He’s like a walking encyclopedia! The three of you are very funny.

    Omg thats the first time Brian has said something that wasn’t bat shit crazy. He’s freaking right about all of it. Brain your an awesome nerd. Props for seeing that.
    I never liked Green Lantern because I didn’t find much of any connection to the characters.

    Hey guys ok the monkey photo discussion got my attention.

    I’m a photographer, professional for 3 years. Loved it but the changing world has made it vary hard for photographers to make a living. People use camera phones for everything and they may look ok, a professional photographer had skill to work magic and thats the difference…

    Now the simple copy right rule is who fired the camera, unless of a agreement. For example shooting s pic of lightening, which by the way you don’t need a strobe sensor to do by the way, it’s just a hell of a lot easier lol, the photographer gets credit because they set up the trigger mechanism… Same for a motion sensor.
    If you have an assistant you are paying it’s basically the same as if you pulled the trigger because the assistint is your payed mechanism, however do have contract agreements just to protect yo ass as well…

    So a monkey triggers the camera the money, if they had rights, would own the photo… Or the owner of the monkey could be considered as the owner. Now if the photographer wrote a contract if the monkey/monkeys shoots the photo I own the photo, they could save them selves…

    Ahhhh but there is a catch… If it is found out that he really did shoot the photo he could own it but his credibility is compromised caught in a lie.
    My self I love to take photos apart and find out how they are done. I can look at UFOs, ghost, and big foot and tell whats photoshopped, because I do photoshop art. It’s all art to me. I don’t even blame the photographer for their lie because photography has gotten so hard to survive in. I do blame them for being sloppy though….
    Art and making money is now so hard you almost have to brake the rules to survive : /

    Now as an artist I’m trying to get in to CGI mainly because it’s still a hard skill that no company has made a total easy button that put CGI artist out of business… Even though CGI is part of what has put mat and glass painters for movies, and lots of stop motion animators out of work…

    Kind of depressing really. Like a survival or the most skilled, most cheating or the most thought of skill.
