Really looking forward to this... loved the first one. I usually don't like spacey scifi stuff but this is more in the Star Wars vein than Star Trek, plus is overall hilarious (although you expect that with Chris Pratt).

Plus a wrestler is one of the main stars, so you can't really go wrong.

I'm still unsure what I really thought about the first one, but I haven't rewatched it since then. Once I do, probably right before I eventually check this one out, it may settle in with me and make me more excited to see this one for itself. But at the moment it's only on my list as part of following the MCU story.

I saw this movie the other day, and enjoyed it. I think I liked the first one better, but this was a fun movie as well. A few little things I could have lived without, but I will set that aside and just think happy thoughts about how adorable baby Groot is. :inlove:

There was a great amount to enjoy, if you have a preference for watching a scrappy bunch take on an arrogant villain. The comedy is I think similar to a majority of entertainment these days, goofy, relatable, refreshing, and generally, with the exception of the the first twenty minutes, clean. At least to a certain degree.
The Guardians of the Galaxy films are also intended to be more funny than the other Marvel films, and Chris Pratt sold it.

I love Gamora, and here she reminded of the character Ziva from NCIS. While still being a woman capable of defending herself, she doesn't isolate herself from others, or treat her substitute family unkindly. It's clear hanging out with Drax, Rocket, Groot, and Star Lord has devolved her personality a bit more. I understand her need to be tough because of how she was raised, and I'm glad she's not bitter over it.

Also, I'm glad the raunchier humour was stuffed in the beginning and not as prevalent throughout. That way my friends and I only had to make weird faces for a short period of time.

I'd have to see the first again to determine whether this one succeeded it or not. I don't think the music choices were as satisfactory, and yet it was entertaining.
Teenage Groot though. Oh my word. :lol:

I really enjoyed it... although I'd say I probably liked the first one a little more, still a really good movie. I dunno, I'm partial to old man Kurt Russell.

I wouldn't have personally minded the raunchiness if I hadn't seen it with my mother-in-law. :(

I dug the dancing Jeff Goldblum during the credits, though. \:D/
