James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy was without a doubt one of the best movies of 2014. Marvel Studios’ motley group of space heroes was certainly a surprise, though like any other movie there were things that could have been improved. For me, the first would have been some sort of explanation about how StarLord’s mask worked (perhaps it encased the wearer within a small envelope of atmosphere, which would explain how he could go into space without anything protecting his body but a leather suit and duster).
The second thing that bothered me a bit was the scene where we first meet The Collector, Taneleer Tavan (Benicio Del Toro), and he was speaking to his Attendant.
Their conversation began with him asking if her people had elbows.
“I don’t have to remind you what happened to the last Attendant who disappointed me?” said The Collector.
“You mean that Attendant that’s been a foot behind me the entire time? The Attendant that there’s no possible way that I could’ve missed? You mean that Attendant?”
Seeing what her fate was a few scenes later, perhaps it would have been better if she had been a bit more defiant while she had the chance.
