Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
The story line is pretty straight forward. A band of intergallactic misfits who don't much like one another are thrown together by circumstances that are beyond their control and in the interest of battling a greater evil than they see in each other, they form a team with an odd assortment of personalities and supernatural powers and in the end, good triumphs over bad, at least for the moment. Vim Diesel does an excellent job inhabiting a plant based life form whose only line until the very end is "I am Groot" with remarkable charm, and overall it is a diversionary bit of entertainment.
