Yup! We're still talking about Guardians of the Galaxy. But it's not our fault that they keep doing all of this crazy cool stuff!

James Gunn, director of [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073) (and Guardians of the Galaxy 2! Huzzah!) is one of Moviepilot’s favorite people on the planet at the moment. Marvel UK recently released a interview-style video of Gunn sitting down with the stars of GotG for a segment called “In the Hot Seat With James Gunn.” Yes, you guessed it! This is Gunn asking the cast questions about himself. The planet Earth is a good place to live today.

Gunn wastes no time and jumps right into it by asking: “What are your thirty-five favorite things about James Gunn?”

Wow! No beating around the bush with this guy, huh? Check out the video here:

Below are some of our favorite moments (Gunn's responses are without the blue indicator):

Chris Pratt:

"First of all, we have have a wonderful rapport on set... We just have a comedic banter that goes back and forth."

“I think that was only number six or seven...”

“Okay, um. He…..smells.”


Karen Gillian:

“James Gunn is just so funny, and so charming, and so great with actors…Really, really smart and modest.”

Zoe Saldana:

“There are actually forty-eight…He is super peculiar.”

“What about my grace?”

“Your grace?”

“The way I move is just kind of alluring.”

Dave Bautista:

“I never felt like you looked at us as anything other than buddies…I never felt like I was working for you.”

“No, you were working for me.”

Vin Diesel:

“James is the kind of director that goes into a Marvel universe and turns it on its head.”

It’s this kind of witty repartee between cast and crew that we love to see! The chemistry and comradery displayed in the video above is exactly why the movie was so successful and fun, because they were truly a group of pals having a blast together. It looks like working on Guardians of the Galaxy all day was a joy for everyone involved. I volunteer to play a role in [Guardians of the Galaxy 2](movie:1081113). You're welcome, Marvel Studios.

If you're not already, we insist you follow Gunn on Twitter. He is so real it hurts.
