I have been looking forward to this, which should be out in 2 weeks. 5 May.

The recent GEICO commercials with the Gekko trying to train Baby Groot to speak scripted words was quite endearing, more a commercail for GotG2 than GEICO.

Is anybody NOT looking forward to it? Trying to avoid the hoopla?



It could be the best film this year, haven't seen serious contenders so far.

With Sylvester Stallone, Kurt Russell, Gregg Henry, and the family Gunn.

Perhaps I should have said "most entertaining" film this year.

I am highly anticipating it. New characters and the deeper look at returning ones... plus new music. Until I saw Thor: Ragnarok, I wasn't expecting any competition to best soundtrack to compete w/ GotG v2 , but wow....I think THAT trailer is my most fav since... Serenity!


But yeah, look for some Yondo love in Vol 2, along w/ more Gamora and Nebula. Baby Groot is...well, more a work in progress.

If Nathan and/or Alan are part of this one, I wonder if they had any scenes with Gregg Henry again. Nathan has already worked with him again in Slither, with some James Gunn guy directing.

Tried to dodge, but I did hear that...

It was a good , funny movie, but not as good as the 1st one. Expected.
There was actually too much attempt at humor, and it took away from the action.
The 4 codas weren't all that much worth it.


On this last one, I guess I'll withhold judgement. Some believe that codas are meant to be awesome teasers as to what is coming in the next movie, or some such. Others view it as extra side stuff, connected to but not shown in the movie itself, and just meant to be funny. The Shawarma scene at the end of Avengers didn't TELL us anything, though it was kinda cool. I liked that, but I suppose opinions vary.

Does Nathan make an appearance at all?
I know early on he was spotted faux movie posters on the set of a presumably flashback scene on Earth.

No. I'm guessing he was cut? Not listed in any of the credits either. I don't even know what the posters were about now...Odd.





You know how there is different types of humor? Slapstick, Uncomfortable, Deadpan...

I think this is the first movie that used "Improbable humor" all the way through. Like they say things that you wouldn't expect them to say, and they can be funny, but mostly the whole thing felt surreal. It was like the whole thing was written by guys that live in the comic book store that are really "out there."

It was also like you are in a line of consciousness dream/slash nightmare. And they tried to shove a lot of awkward emotionalism into the movie, but only one of the feels felt real. And it's a doozy, bring tissues.

There were also a lot of cliché devices that I can't say because it would ruin the movie, but you can see them coming from a mile off.

I don't like this one as much as the first, but I was still happy to get out and watch anything. We give it a B+.

There were also like five extra shorts so stick around if you do go.

So, saw the movie. Liked it. Certainly follows the first in over all look, theme, etc... good. A solid B.

Where I think it lost me some was the humor. Just too much and over done, imo. Unnecessary. It's like they gathered everyone's ideas and instead of toning down or leaving out some, they just wrote it all in. IDK if it took away from the story, or was actually put in there to help distract FROM the story, which imo was a bit lacking.

Issues / questions I had...

Select to view spoiler:




* The Sovereign. Why did they, super advanced race that they are , need a rag tag band of mercs to defend their precious batteries in the first place ? I'm sorry, but that just made no sense. And if they were so damn valuable, why no alarm when a few go missing ?

Oh, and their remote drones aren't worth jack squat for fire power.

* When Nebula ate the unripened fruit, why say what everyone already knows ? No need to state the obvious. Just make a sour face, and spit it out...

* Ego - What a cool character. But seriously, the guy is a PLANET ! He couldn't defend himself better than that ? Is taking down a millions year old Celestial really that easy to do ? Pretty weak ,imo. I think it would have been best to wound him ( thinking they'd killed him , make the escape, and leaving the door open for his possible return, or simply reference to him still being alive, later on.

* So Peter finds out he's HALF Celestial, and then just figures out in a day or two how to harness the planetary power that literally IS is dad ? Please ! That's even less likely than Rey fighting a fully trained Sith after picking up a light sabre for the first time !

* The Ravagers and the funeral - We're to assume that Peter not only relayed the news of Yondu's passing, but also that by NOT delivering Peter to Ego, Yondu basically saved the universe from being taken over ? And by hearing that news, they believed it, and fully comprehended it, to the point of acknowledging that yes - Yondu was in fact a worthy Ravager after all, and because he FROZE to death, not exactly while in an actual battle, he deserved full burial rights, by everyone else, who clearly dropped what they were doing to just show up and shoot fireworks about ?

Did they also have to make 700 portal jumps ?

I mean, it's one thing for Ego to transmit his planet power to the 1000's of planets, across the Cosmos, instantaneously, but we're to expect the Ravagers to have a communication system that sends and receives across light years, in real time ?

Yondu - Sucked that he went out, but I guess he did show a father's love for Peter. I had heard that one of the Guardians might die, and that it would be Mantis.

I was sure Mantis would leap out and sacrifice herself for the others, so she'd no longer be Ego's pet. Much like Carina offed herself rather than be The Collector's slave girl.





And yeah, the music was pretty darn good.

I'm just wondering why you are bothering to rationalize out ANYTHING that happened in the movie?? I mean, you could spend LESS time pointing out the logical bits

Oh, and one more thing...

Select to view spoiler:




Clearly, Groot had been walking around for some time. Why did he freeze when Drax looked at him, during the fight scene at the beginning ? Yes, it was a cute reference to when Groot was still in the pot, and hadn't become animated yet. So why do it now ? That made no sense, and wasn't funny.




Seemed more of a reach than anything.

Where I think it lost me a few was the diversion. Just excessively and over done, imo. Superfluous. It resembles they accumulated everybody's thoughts and as opposed to conditioning down or forgetting a few, they just composed everything in. IDK in the event that it detracted from the story, or was really placed in there to help divert FROM the story, which imo was somewhat deficient. https://www.theacademicpapers.co.uk/dissertation-proposal-writing-serv

I conjured it was just Baby Groot showing immaturity, in character.

I thought is was just for the 3-d effects...which we didn't see the 3-d, but there are a lot of those kinds of still shots for effect now a days.

Went to see it yesterday (Saturday) and I agree with whoever said it wasn't as good as the first one. They threw everything in including the kitchen sink, but it made little sense, or I should say, it wasn't as interesting.

It seemed to me that they stopped the film to do these boring character studies as to why our heroes weren't given enough love and hugs when they were kids. It was sappy and not funny, at all. The trailers gave away the best scenes in the movie and it didn't have the snappy banter of the first one.

I give it 3 Stars out of 5

I got a few chuckles out of it, but on in particular made me LOL. The scene where they show Starlord's daddy when he turns into David Hasselhoff

Finally got out to the theater to see it. I liked it. Not quite as good as the first one, but that's probably just because it's not new this time around.

That being said I think I laughed harder than I have in years. Baby Groot just gets me.

I liked the they actually developed the villain of the movie this time around. I think it's a big misstep of most of the marvel movies that they just sort of have villains who are running around doing bad things cause they're bad and that's the extent of them. At least explain their motivations and give them some backstory.

Anyway definitely worth a rewatch when it comes to home video.

It wasn't that he's walking it's that he's dancing. Drax isn't a fan of dancing. There's apparently a deleted scene from the first movie where adult Groot is dancing and Drax gives him a hard time about it. That's why he stops in the post credits scene of the first movie when Drax looks at him. Probably just a throw back to that.
