The movie was really good. I won’t rave about it the way my friends have been because A) you’re probably busy raving or tired of people raving about it and B) I didn’t think it was the greatest superhero movie I’ve seen, which is what I’ve seen some people saying. But it was really good.

And I don’t think I actually have particular problems with Ronan’s design and characterization. It just struck me while watching his first scene that the villain seemed very tribal and Star-Lord seemed very white.

So I did just a little googling of the character and the Kree, saw no sign of temples and face paints in the comic illustrations that came up, and decided to level the social justice warrior guns at Marvel. Those monsters.
