A filmmaker would be the first to admit that sometimes, there are leaps of logic in their movies. The main response is, “It’s a movie.” The whole point is to show you things that are impossible and exciting, logic be dammed. But that’s not the place CinemaSins lives in. Their “Everything Wrong With” videos thrive in that space between fun and logic, nitpicking even the most stupid little thing.
This time though, it just so happens their latest video – Guardians of the Galaxy – is timed with the film’s director, totally independently, explaining one of the “sins” of Guardians of the Galaxy. That being the fact Peter Quill’s Walkman and the Awesome Mix Vol. 1 still works after 26 years. Below, see the video and read Gunn’s response – which also includes some clarification of the Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Avengers: Infinity War quotes. Read More »

Everyone assums Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is some kind of bridge movie to set up a big crossover in Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2. The release date, which comes exactly one year before Infinity War Part I, certainly suggests that, as does the probability of Thanos playing in role in both movies. But writer/director James Gunn wants to be very clear about this. That’s simply not the case. Read Gunn’s Avengers 3 prequel quote below. Read More »
One of the biggest mysteries at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy is the identity of Peter Quill’s father. He is obviously special, as it was his genes that helped Quill survive while holding an Infinity Gem. Going into the sequel, his identity will certainly be mentioned and one of the few people who knows the answer is James Gunn. The writer and director of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will soon write the script to the movie, set for release May 2017 and, in a new photo, he reveals a list of people who may or may not be Peter Quill’s father. It’s really funny. Check out the Peter Quill Father worksheet below. Read More »

Sitting down to see Guardians of the Galaxy the first time, the most surprising thing about it was its tone. Director James Gunn created such a fun, energetic feeling with the film, which was cemented in that wonderful opening credits sequence. That showed Star Lord (Chris Pratt) rocking out to Come and Get Your Love by Redbone. Instantly, you knew this movie was different. This movie was going to be fun, yet also grounded.
The actors had that knowledge before the film even began shooting. Gunn gave Pratt in particular his own customized Awesome Mix Vol. 1 to listen to so he’d be in the mindset of his character. Most of the songs made it into the movie but some did not. Now Gunn has revealed the full original list. He also explains why a few of the songs didn’t make it into the final film. Check out the original Awesome Mix Guardians of the Galaxy songs below. Read More »
