10. Attention Idiots!

You have five seconds to release my friend or else I blow up your ship…  Including my friend.  It may not make sense logically but it is hilarious.

#10 on this list is dedicated to Rocket in general.

9. Thanos

For years, the only glimpse of Thanos Marvel gave us was a quick shot of him smiling at the end of The Avengers.  Guardians finally gave us an entire scene featuring The Mad Titan and the most powerful being in the universe delivered.

8. Groot vs The Paper People

Paper People is a way better name than Sakaaran.  (Well done Drax) Regardless, Groot takes care of a group of Ronan’s minions with one (actually several) swings of his arm.  It’s the genuine smile that sells this moment.

7. Concentrated Ingots

We all knew the Infinity Stones existed in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe.  The introduction of Thanos began a long journey to 2018’s Infinity War.  But hearing The Collector discuss the Infinity Stones directly finally gave us solid information.  The scene may be a tad ‘exposition-y’ but we needed a little history on the stones so it’s acceptable.

6. The Defense of Xandar

The climactic battle is colorful and brilliantly choreographed.  Given their lackluster history in the ‘final battle’ department, this sequence helped make the third act in Guardians one Marvel’s strongest.

5. Escape From The Kyln

The Guardians escape from the Nova Corps prison is action packed, exciting and hilarious.  But it also brings the Guardians together for the first time.  One sequences tells you an incredible amount about who these characters are and why we love them.

4. Jack Asses Standing In A Circle

The definitive ‘moment’ in the movie where Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot become a family.

3. Literal Drax

“Nothing goes over my head.  My reflexes are too fast I would catch it.”

2. We Are Groot

Guardians of the Galaxy is full of action and humor.  It’s also a brilliantly designed film overflowing with color, style and music. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, director James Gunn also hits you with a touching and emotional moment like this.

1. Dance Off Bro!

“You said it yourself bitch, we’re the Guardians of the Galaxy.”
