Guardians of the Galaxy (James Gunn) - 2014

One raccoon, one tree, a skinny green woman and two bouncers join forces to prevent the destruction of multiple planets by a nasty guy in a hoodie.  The leader (Glenn Close) of the first planet to be destroyed has just set the new record for the worst science-fiction hairdo ever.  Deep space is a very dangerous place indeed.  Our five unlikely heroes manage to dodge certain death many many times with barely a scratch.  There will be at least one sequel for this superhero (?) series and Benicio del Toro may return with the special guest star who appeared only in the short sequence after the credits.  [JAM 8/19/2014]
