I've been a fan of James Gunn's work since I first saw Tromeo and Juliet at a friend's apartment in Murfreesboro way back in the late '90s. I was so bowled over by what that film did that I even saw both of the Scooby-Doo movies he wrote. Fortunately, with the Dawn of the Dead remake, it all got back on track, and Slither and Super continued in that fashion. So there's history there, and I have to doff my theoretical hat to Marvel, because with Shane Black last year and now James Gunn, they've taken some of my favorite writer/directors and made them A-list players - and this is something that can only benefit our culture immeasurably.
So please do check out my review of this film for the Scene. It's a lot of fun, and it brings me great joy on multiple levels.
