What I’m Watching: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Oh, what fun a movie like this can be!
I went to the movies on Saturday night with my husband and our friend, Doug. If it’s a Marvel movie, this trio is going to see it together!
I’ve got to say this was one of the most fun Marvel films yet. The opening sequence has Baby Groot dancing to Mr. Blue Sky by ELO while the rest of the Guardians fight a massive space monster. There are hilarious near misses and little bits here and there. The rest of the film is really a continuation of the feeling of this TERRIFIC open.
There are serious moments and gut-busting funny moments and arm-rest-gripping tense action moments. I don’t want to be one of THOSE people who ruin a movie for others by popping out left and right with spoilers so I won’t reveal much else here. It’s just too good to not let it evolve with each surprise laugh and eye candy delirium intact.
The dialogue is snappy, the action is fast and delightful, and the characters are flawed and wonderful, as usual.
One note: once the credits begin to roll, DON’T LEAVE! There are actually 5 extra scenes that’s mixed in with the credits and the producers found ways to make even the credits entertaining. The last little one with Teen Groot is just too funny to miss.
