Star Wars Episode VII or Guardians of the Galaxy: choose *one*

(Not a terribly substantial thread here, I'll admit; I'm mostly curious to see the poll results. )

Zounds! A sinister warlock has put a curse upon you: you may see either Star Wars - Episode VII, or Guardians of the Galaxy, but not both, or you will shortly thereafter perish - and you must make your selection now, in the poll above. Careful: do not choose... poorly.

Re: Star Wars Episode VII or Guardians of the Galaxy: choose *one*

I take it if I see Star Wars VII, I can then watch Star Wars VIII and IX as well?

I'm pretty sure Guardians will be a better movie, but I think the desire for completeness would cause me to go see Star Wars instead (provided I can watch the remaining two as well). I'll probably make my choice for reasons other than "best movie."

Re: Star Wars Episode VII or Guardians of the Galaxy: choose *one*

So, some evil pollster from the Dark Side is making me buy one ticket now? If There Can Be Only One, then the choice is a no-brainer, with no hesitation even for a microsecond.

I haven't seen a Marvel movie since I made the mistake of seeing The Avengers in 2012. I've seen every movie Abrams has directed since he started helming blockbusters in 2006. Unless the reviews are bad, I think I'll stick with the trend.

I'm embarrassed to say I actually had to Google Guardians of the Galaxy. Suffice it to say, my choice is an easy one.

Re: Star Wars Episode VII or Guardians of the Galaxy: choose *one*

Yeah.. Same here... I have no frame of reference for Guardians of the Galaxy. I'm sure I'll see it, but there is just no way I'm picking it over Star Wars.

Re: Star Wars Episode VII or Guardians of the Galaxy: choose *one*

I love the Marvel Cinematic Universe and my favourite Doctor Who companion is the gorgeous Karen Gillan, so it may be something of a surprise that I couldn't give a single solitary stuff about Guardians of the Galaxy.

Star Wars for me. I predict GotG will be Marvels first flop...

I dont know anything about GotG myself, but have since learned that it includes a talking racoon. how can this ever be a flop???

`That said, if I had to choose, it would be Star Wars I guess.. In the hope that GotG is not to intertwined with the rest of the cinematic marvel universe.

Re: Star Wars Episode VII or Guardians of the Galaxy: choose *one*

Given the post-credit scenes in Thor, my guess is that Guardians of the Galaxy might be the essential movie to tie the entire universe together going all the way to Avengers 3. But if I'm going to die, I can always read about it on wikipedia

Re: Star Wars Episode VII or Guardians of the Galaxy: choose *one*

Guardians of the Galaxy for me. I read the Star Wars novels post Episode 6 and I have a strange feeling Abrams is going to smother it with lens flare and explosions. Plus, I'm enjoying the Marvel cinematic universe. If that movie works, there's no end to what Disney can do with Marvel.

Re: Star Wars Episode VII or Guardians of the Galaxy: choose *one*

I don't think the poll options are quite lopsided enough. Why not have a poll asking if you'd rather get leprosy or win a million dollars tax-free instead?

If the poll options were "Would you rather watch Guardians of the Galaxy or stare at a blank screen for two hours?", I might choose the blank screen. Or, to keep it relevant: "Would you rather get rabies from an anthropomorphic raccoon and be anal probed by a tree alien, or have the power of the Force?"

Anyway, as you might have surmised, I chose Star Wars Ep VII without a moment's hesitation.

I didn't even know what GotG was before the movie was announced, and the more I found out about it, the less interested I was, even though it's space opera like SW. This will probably be the only Marvel movie in the recent lineup that I'll wait to see on blu-ray, unless people I trust say it was great after seeing it in theaters.

Because it includes a talking racoon...

I like both franchises and I want to see both of them. That said, Star wars as a franchise would usually win, but I have to go with the movie being made without that a-hole JJ Abrams, so its GotG for me if I had to pick one.
