Guardians of the Galaxy is the best Marvel movie ever.  It’s got a lot of laughs, plenty of action, and most importantly it has heart.  Another part of what makes this film so great is that even though it is connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you need no prior knowledge of any of the source material.
