Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

“I’m sorry I didn’t do none of it right.”

What’s it about?

The Guardians of the Galaxy piss off a bunch of walking jewellery, Peter meets papa Quill and loads of underlying issues gets resolved.

Who’s in it?

Burt Macklin in space, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, a guy who lives his life a quarter mile at a time, Merle Dixon, Karen Gillan, Kurt Russell, nepotism and Rocky Balboa.

Why should I watch it?

+ Just great to see the gang back again, so much love for these characters
+ Movie uses the buddy system and splits the team in pairs
+ Surprised at how well the Yondu and Rocket pairing worked, got pretty deep at times so make sure to wear armbands
+ Also, that whistle arrow thingy is OP as fuck
+ Loved the Gamora and Nebula pairing, makes Nebula more likeable and shows how shitty Thanos is
+ Bad dads seem to be a theme in the movie
+ Mantis and Drax coupling makes for some good comedy, social awkwardness and dead pan jokes
+ Treat them mean, keep them keen Drax
+ Finally, we see Peter spending time with his dad, Kurt Russell nailed Ego
+ Also fleshes out Yondu’s relationship with Peter, why he’s got a soft spot for him
+ I guess the lesson is that, real dads teaches their kids how to shoot a gun and steal from people
+ Baby
+ Groot
+ Is
+ Fucking
+ Adorable
+ He’s got cute and funny scenes sprinkled throughout
+ Your maternal instincts kicks in every time you see him
+ Baby Groot misunderstanding people was jokes
+ Although, that toe scene was fucking dark
+ Dance intro scene is back and it was fucking amazing
+ Liked the scene transitions using Awesome Mix Vol. 2
+ Meredith Quill, back at it again with that mixtape 🔥🔥🔥
+ Colourful costumes and sceneries
+ Finding tape scene was my favourite joke
+ Movie has heart, emotional at some points
+ Loads of therapy going around in this movie, breaking down walls and shit
+ Like the first one, it kinda has one main bad guy and an extra faction of bad guys after them
+ Movie and tv references everywhere
+ Couple of reoccurring jokes
+ Obligatory topless Chris Pratt scene

Why shouldn’t I watch it?

– Some of the jokes fell a bit flat
– Like, no one in the audience laughed
– Bodies falling down looked to comical that one time
– First one had a tighter storyline
– Surprising Peter didn’t end up a stripper yet with all his daddy issues
– Even Gamora and Nebula when I think about it
– Peter and Gamora are worst than Ross and Rachel
– Mantis is pretty much the world’s biggest sleeping pill
– She puts more people to sleep than Conor McGregor
– Who the fuck uses Zune?
– Drax loves being covered in yellow fluids apparently
– *R Kelly likes this comment*

Anything else?

Although this films is also highly entertaining, gotta say that I enjoyed the first one more. Is it due to the novelty? Maybe. It’s still the only movie about “family” featuring Vin Diesel and a former WWE wrestler that you should be watching. Also stick around for FIVE end credit scenes. I know right? Might as well have shown us the sequel. Groot related one was my favourite. Funny insight. So, while I gave GoTG an 8/10, Vol. 2 gets a…

7/10

  1. Very fair review. Got to say that the audience in my screening laughed a lot at the film and I found it to be very consistently funny. That said, it is hampered by a weak plot and the design does walk a tight line between being impressive and overwhelming

    1. Yeah maybe it’s the audience I was with aha there loads of funny parts though. Yeah it’s not the strongest. Still a fun ride but I wouldn’t go back to the cinema to see it again.

  2. – Who the fuck uses Zune?
    Maybe that’s why it’s found its way to the other galaxy. Like thru intergalactic ebay perhaps?
    Also, wouldn’t it be way cooler for Star-Lord to replace his Walkman with Zune rather than an iPod?

      1. I liked it as Yondu’s parting gift. It fits the movie’s themes. Also, I think it’s kind of a joke–it’s Zune, it’s dead just like Walkman—perhaps also a bait for those guys in Honest Trailers, so they can make a joke about something that’s obviously a joke. (I hope I making sense.)
