Thanks for letting us know that, mkpunk. Because I don't think that anyone knew that.

Dude, he was making a joke.

Yes, Owen is earthier, more business than the free-for-all verve of Peter (Quill). Which is why I like Jurassic World more than either Guardians movie. But Kingdom's plot structure goes off the rails. I hope they can recover with the next film.

Oh I am with you that Fallen Kingdom isn't a cleary better film than 2, 3 shat the bed and is better discussed in the Death Star trash compactor... I am not with you about Guardians though. It is a James Gunn style movie and I happen to like Gunn's work whether we talk the original Scooby Doo or Super. If you don't like that quark style, it won't be a movie you like.

As for the joke it is hard to know. I can get people thinking that is Star-Lord, the same as saying Harrison Ford playing Indiana Jones is really Han Solo. That said, unlike Han and Indy, the characters are different as we both stated. Han versus Indy was merely a space pirate with a heart of gold underneath it all versus a treasure hunter for good with no criminal exterior. Owen is carefree in some ways, but doesn't joke when it is time to be serious when needed, Star-Lord would be making jokes until he died. Insert Ronan dance-off here.

Hmmm. You always did have an 'interesting' way of thinking, mkpunk.

I somewhat agree but for the most part I realize they are two different (enough) characters.

I saw it today, it wasn't bad, but I had to loose my expectations of it being anything close to the original Jurassic movie. Still I'll take this one over the first Jurassic World, now that was a stinker in comparison as far as I'm concerned, though I've learned to somewhat enjoy it along the lines of the previous ones.

Actually, I was being euphemistic and used "interesting" as a substitute for "strange."
