Now Geek This: A Review of Guardians of the Galaxy

nowgeekthisWelcome to another exciting edition of Now Geek This.  This week, I will be reviewing Guardians of the Galaxy, the latest addition to the Marvel cinematic universe.  Guardians is written and directed by James Gunn, and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and wrestler Dave Bautista, along with the voice talents of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.
