Yes, very much so.

Though I felt like huge swaths of the younger audience were left scratching their heads towards the end of the film.

Bonus in-joke: The car that Ego is driving in the opening is a Pontiac Firebird.

Which is what KITT is the 1982 model of.

Can someone with more in-depth knowledge of the source material explain who Stallone/Starhawk's Ravager teammates were that he re-united with at the end of the film? There's probably a greater meaning there that I'm just not seeing.
It's no use debating a moron; they drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

Your claim of using a scientific equation is laughable when all you have done is butcher science to the point it makes 'The Core' look like a fucking documentary. Just because you have the attention span of a fruit fly doesn't mean the rest of us are so encumbered.

Wikipedia or possible TV Tropes I forget where I read it has them down as the original Guardian of the Galaxy team from the comic books.

There is an interview with Feige and Gunn that confirms who they are (lots of spoilers, obviously)

Most are the original Guardians, though even the ones who aren't are associated with the Guardians in some way. Stallone is Starhawk, Michelle Yeoh is Aleta Ogord (the female Starhawk), Ving Rhames is Charlie-27, the crystal guy (played by Michael Rosenbaum) is Martinex, the red guy is Krugarr, and the robot is Mainframe (and voiced by Miley Cyrus).

This was a middling film made of some fun components.

That said, I loved the eighties references, and having Stallone was just brilliant.

Just came back from seeing it an hour ago.
Fun, that's the movie in a single word. Every few minutes another fun thing happens, some the trailer gave away but seeing things I felt nothing but man this is a good old fun time.

Wish the end fight had shown more than one dose of creativity/joke at the end because otherwise aside from a certain someone's heel turn I enjoyed most parts of the movie a great deal.
