On this episode of the Cine-Analyst, we meet Peter Jason Quill, aka Starlord, the big damn hero of the Guardians of the Galaxy film franchise. But just because he’s a hero of his own story, doesn’t mean that he doesn’t have his own problems. After all, when he left Earth, his mother had just died before his eyes. So what’s a rocket man to do, when the world below him’s got him feeling blue?
Here’s what we talk about this episode:
- When the dead mom actually matters (for once).
- Peter the pirate, and his inability to connect with others.
- Gamorra, the team mom.
- No, it’s not an Oedipal Complex.
- Family is more than who you share genes with.
Tune in every Friday as I breakdown fictional characters and talk about what’s going on inside that brain of theirs. Are your favorite heroes crazy or just misunderstood? Find out on this season of The Cine-Analyst!
