    The tape and batteries aren't that big a deal.......the breathing in space for ten minutes while not having your eyeballs freeze solid and shatter into shards was the only thing that stretched credulity,IMO.....

    I would have thought that with the technology available it would be more like he's managed to retro fit any alternative battery/power source to the walkman.
    Actually thought that was pretty obvious

    My god, enough with battery nonsense. The energizer bunny has been going since 1989!

    it wasn't ten minutes.....it was hardly even a minute. and also that is not what happens when you are in space.

    The Other who Ronan killed is prominent in the Avengers. Thanos is scene in the end credits of Avengers. The Aether and Tesseract appear in images. Obvious connections are obvious

    It was like 40 seconds max. Sit there for 40 seconds and see if it feels like it was even that long.

    Is hyperbole a prerequisite for this thread?

    Also NASA exposed animals to a vaccum and they survived...also there have been space missions where astronauts were temporarily exposed as well and they survived

    Did the animals eyeballs freeze solid and shatter into shards?

    Gunn said he consulted with physics/space guys who assured him a human could survive the same amount of time Quill spent out there. He also said the hull of Yondu's ship had regenerative properties so it helped heal him.

    This should be a non-issue.

    Except, for me at least, the presence of the Tesseract and Aether weren't obvious, and the mere presence of Thanos, The Collector, and The Other weren't substantial-enough links, IMO.

    Actually Gunn wanted a movie that stood on it's own yet was part of the same universe 0.o. I seriously want to know..it what legitimate...unforced....logical way could they have had connections "to your taste"?

    Loki's staff was not shown in the movie...but since it's not an infinity stone anyway that point is moot

    Not if you were expecting connections that you believed weren't there.

    A mention of the events of Thor, The Avengers, or The Dark.World, or The presence or mention of the Aether and/or Tesseract (the latter of which were apparently included but that I apparently missed).

    Two characters from Avengers (Thanos and The Other) were present in the movie....but what you want is name dropping without any story driven reason apparently.....for what reason could they possibly have for mentioning Thor in the story? or The Avengers?

    references should be natural, not forced

    The presence of The Other and The Collector, for starters.

    But this discussion is pointless because it sounds like my complaint is moot anyway.

    Their mere presence WAS the connection 0.o....

    Which, for me, wasn't substantial enough, because the only way you would know that they WERE connected to previous movies is if you were being astute and especially observant.

    Jeez guys, agree to disagree. It's enough for one of you, not for the other, there.
