Guardians of the Galaxy is still in theaters, ruling the box office as the top earning domestic film in 2014... so far. The film has lead what has been an abysmal summer box office, and out-performed expectations and won over audiences. We'll discuss the film and try to figure out exactly why it's taken movie theaters by storm. And.... We are Groot!

Tune in to find out if it will go down in the history books as one of the best scifi/fantasy movies EVER, or if it should be burned and have it's ashes tossed into the darkest reaches of space.
