Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2

Holy shit balls, this was a fucking blast! I was smiling most of the film, the opening credits are fantastic, it sets the mood perfectly, it combines colorful visuals, the soundtrack, action, sci fi & humor. The plot is the best Marvel has had since the first Guardians, this is the best looking Marvel film since the first one, the funniest one since the first, has the best action since the first, this film is almost perfect! Star Lord's story is touching, and it is quite the coming of age tale. Gamora's mainly involves Peter, but it too carries heart. Drax gets the funniest moments by far, Batista is amazing in comedic performances, and is indeed a badass! Groot is adorable as fuck in this! Rocket, along with Yondu, have their own coming of age story, accepting being assholes with hearts, they also happen to have some solid bad ass moments! Yondu even goes all comic book in it! Kraglin gets more screen time, which is great for those of us that are fans of the Brothers Gunn! Nebula, well, she yet again, is a character with a coming of age story, she is full on tweener for the most part. New characters in the film such as Mantis & Ego get time to shine, Mantis is great, Ego is the best Marvel villain since Loki, by far, god damn Kurt Russel is great in this! This is how a comic book film should be! This is how it should look, it looks like a comic, it is fun, it is fast paced, it is not pretentious, the humor is genuine, the action is great, the characters are lovable! The more i think about this, the more i loved it! The stingers are cool, one is hilarious, one sets up a spin off, one sets up Guardians 3, one is an evolution of a character, the other, is just a cameo! As excited as i am to see the Guardians interact with the Avengers, i almost wish it stayed its own beast, as while watching this, it felt fresh, i wasn't thinking, oh how will this affect Tony Stark, no i was thinking, this is a blast to watch! God damn this was great!
