Robert Downey Jr. Declares Guardians Of The Galaxy The Best Marvel Movie Ever
by Jamie Lovett

Marvel Studios’ Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr., has named Guardians of the Galaxy as the best Marvel movie yet.

Downey made the proclamation in an interview with The Toronto Sun from the Toronto International Film Festival.

“Galaxy in some ways is the best Marvel movie ever,” Downey said. “And it’s odd for someone with — on occasion — an ego the size of mine to actually say that!”

Downey picks Guardians out of all the Marvel films – including the ones with him in them, like The Avengers and the Iron Man movies – because it was such an underdog.

“We’re talking about how the Iron Mans and the Thors and the Captain Americas and the Avengers movies have afforded Marvel the opportunity to essentially take what was a third-tier, minor, kind of upstart bit of potential from one of their comic books series and say: ‘Look!’”

Guardians of the Galaxy has made over $500 million at the worldwide box office, so it seems likely that Downey isn’t the only one who feels this way.

Robert also ad-libs his lines in the recent movie, "La Chef". They accepted what he said in the final cut. I will buy it and GOTG on DVD, for sure, because they are both well written stories.

It's a fun movie, about a chef who sells superb sandwiches, traveling in a food mobile. And teaching his son the ropes about business and life. And how a food critic is won over, and wants to invest in his company/restaraunt business.

I finally got around to seeing this movie this last year, and, while I'm not a big action movie fan in general, this one had all the "feels" to it! And the Raspberries cut was truly something I looked forward to hearing, knowing in advance it was included in there. A whole new generation gets educated about the great Raspberries music via the Mixtape! 💖
