On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable reviews Guardians of the Galaxy!  Is it Marvel’s first true misstep?  Was a mistake for them to embark on a highly comedic journey to the farthest reaches of the cosmos?  Should they simply stick with super soldiers and heavily armored billionaires?  On the flip side, could it actually be Marvel Studios single best movie to date?  Has James Gunn crafted the most quirky and original production to ever come out of the MCU?  Does Rocket Raccoon completely steal the show?  Is the post credits scene with sticking around for?  What does this film mean for the future of the MCU?  Will this Motley Crew embark on even weirder adventures in the future?  Will they ever be fully integrated into the MCU proper?

We’ll also be celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Terminator!  Does it still hold up after all these years?  Can it be considered the first true sci-fi actioner?  Was Arnold Schwarzenegger born to play the T-800?  Is it his single best role to date?  Will James Cameron ever make another film as gritty and nightmarish as this one?  Should he ever return to this kind of low-budget filmmaking?  Does it owe a considerable debt to the classic X-Men story Days of Future Past?  Can it be considered a slasher film in sci-fi clothing?  Is T2 truly a superior follow-up?  Should the franchise continue?
