That was an amazing experience. It's not going to win any awards but damn is it a fun movie. I had the same stupid grin on my face the whole time that I had watching the first movie. I didn't think they could beat the opening credits of the first one with Quill dancing, but they did. It may not expand on any of the Earthborn Avengers movies, but it sure does expand on the Marvel Cinematic Universe off Earth. My fresh thoughts: Stan Lee's cameo made me so happy. Drax pretty much stole the movie. Michael Rooker acted his ass off. Baby Groot should be a merchandising money printing machine. There is a lot more death and swearing than I was expecting. I thought they were a little too heavy on the music. Almost every scene was a song. Are they making movies just to sell the soundtrack? I'm glad we have more backstory to the Ravagers and that they aren't just Yondu's thugs. I'm hoping for a spinoff.
Reviews are out, and almost everyone is saying it's not as good as the first one. Also I got spoiled reading one of them, so fuck them. Why would a legitimate reviewer put spoilers in a review for a movie not out yet?
