5. The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special
It says something about Pratt’s role in the MCU that The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is the worst of his Marvel movies and shows, because The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is actually pretty good.
The whole gang is back for the holiday special: Star-Lord, Drax, Rocket, Groot, Mantis, Nebula, Gamora, Yondu, and Kraglin. James Gunn, the writer and director of all three Guardians of the Galaxy movies, wrote and directed the special, as well. In The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, the Guardians set out on a mission to kidnap Kevin Bacon and give him to Star-Lord for Christmas. Yes, that’s what it’s about.
If this was a full feature-length movie, it would be much higher on the list. It’s that enjoyable, although the runtime is only about 45 minutes. If you still haven’t seen The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, we highly recommend checking it out on Disney Plus when you have time.
Unfortunately, it looks like this will be the last Guardians holiday special. It’s all set to go down in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and I don’t think we’re going to see this group of characters together again for a while if ever.
