* The movie's introduction. We're treated to a TearJerker backstory, then jump forward 26 years to a longcoat-wearing badass traversing a mysterious world. Upon entering some ruins he removes his helmet, putting on some familiar headphones revealing him to be a grown-up Peter. And then....he starts dancing to "Come and Get Your Love", showing us this will be a ''fun'' movie.

** Much of this Awesome comes from Nicole Perlman. In 2009 Marvel Studios hired her to do Research and Development, looking at some of the company's lesser known properties for the possibility of making later films from them. Much to her bosses' surprise, she selected the [=GotG=], one of Marvel's least known properties, deciding which five Guardians to use for the movie (including the raccoon and the tree!), and wrote a rough draft. The result? Nicole Perlman is now the first woman to get a screenplay credit in a movie from the MarvelCinematicUniverse, for a critically acclaimed, box-office smash that nobody outside of Marvel could've seen coming just a year earlier; a movie that wouldn't have been made at all without her initial input. That's one helluva an Awesome way to break a glass ceiling.

** When you think about it, amost everything the Nova corps do is awesome. They comletely avert PoliceAreUseless (their first action is taking four criminal prisoners without endangering any civilian), they are savvy enough not to consider a message a lie just because it's coming from a criminal, they built an empire where race seems not to be an issue (just think how we can't yet deal with different ethnicities), and the first thing they do to face an incoming threat is to start an evacuation program, and their main priority in the battle is ensure the safety of civilians (also counts as hearthwarming).
** Personally, the fact the Saal objects to listening to Quill only once. And, when they decide to act against his advice, he doesn't object and hopes ''he'' is the one being wrong. In most movies, he'd be the obstrusive asshole, here he's actually a quite reasonable guy. Which makes [[spoiler: his death later on all that more of a TearJerker]].

* Before this movie came out, nobody expected it to get the critical praise that some of the other Marvel Cinematic Universe have attained. Once it came out, the movie received ''92%'' on RottenTomatoes from ''227'' reviews - which is amazingly '''higher''' than the critically-acclaimed film that preceded it, ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier'', and is thus far the second most highly-rated Marvel movie on the website together with ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''and just behind ''Film/IronMan1''.

** It eventually became the top grossing film in the US for 2014, beating out the equally acclaimed fellow Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse film ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheWinterSoldier''. It's also the third-highest grossing film in the MCU, only coming behind ''Film/TheAvengers'' and ''Film/IronMan3''.

** Made all the better when you notice that [[spoiler:the scattered twigs of Groot are glowing as well, he is sharing the load with the rest of them (also good foreshadowing that he did not in fact die from the crash).]]
