'Guardians of the Galaxy'
It would be really easy to say “all of it” as our favorite, because the biggest hit of the summer is chock-full of great set pieces and character beats.
But as much as we love dancing Groot, Quill singing into an alien lizard like it was a mic and Star-Lord challenging Ronan to a dance off, we have to pick the prison break sequence for our list. Here, character dictates the action, which finds the perfect balance between high stakes and belly laughs — especially after we learn why Rocket asked for that one inmate’s leg. Guardians isn’t a perfect film, but it does give the audience a great time at the movies, which is a kind of perfection of its own.
