  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Movie Discussion thread


    So we're just around the corner until Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is released (unless you live in the U.K. of course ), and I dunno about you guys, but I loved the first movie, anyway's I'm super excited to go see the sequel. Anyway's you guys know the deal by now, use this thread to discuss the movie once you've seen, so spoilers don't get posted in the main Marvel movie thread, potentially ruining it for those who aren't seeing it opening weekend.

    Saw it. Loved it. One of my favorite entries in the MCU and one of the most enjoyable movies I've ever seen. It's such a blast. Really impressed by how they handled Ego. Never thought it would translate well to a movie, but they pulled it off. Drax & Baby Groot, obviously, stole the show. Baby Groot may be the literal best. Never been so emotionally invested in a character. I was legit pissed when he was getting attacked and I wasn't the only one. One more act of violence against him and militias would've formed in the theater. The movie was a real roller-coaster ride of emotions. The movie features one of the more emotional scenes in the MCU to date and that's not something I ever expected, especially given who the character was. Starlord and Gamora's arcs were nice and fleshed out the movie, but to be honest, I wasn't there for them and couldn't have cared less. :lol Groot, Drax, & Rocket were the draws, with Mantis coming from nowhere to join the list of reasons to watch this movie. Anything else was gravy.

    The movie wasn't perfect, but it sure felt like it was by how much I enjoyed it. An easy 8/9 out of 10.

        I've watched it twice. The first time, I would've ranked it down with the lesser Marvel movies. A second viewing made me appreciate it more. It's still not among the top, but I'd put it in the middle to upper-middle of the pack. The first time through, I was really annoyed with all the bickering they do with each other throughout, and you'd think it would only get worse a second time, but, for no reason I can see, it didn't bother me nearly as much. My only real remaining gripe is that I was really hoping for more of a lead in to Infinity War or connection to the rest of the MCU, but this is very much just a sequel to the first Guardians.

                9/10. It was fucking awesome. I actually enjoyed it more than the first one, it was both funnier and more emotionally heavy. Also I kind of like that fact it wasn't connected to Thanos or the Infinity stones.


                Drax was by far my favorite in this movie, he was 100% hilarious. Baby Groot and Yondu were also really good.

                    I went and saw it last night, I loved the first GotG film, and this one was just as good in my opinion. As others have said, Batista is surprising entertaining in these movies as Drax. Having said that, I kinda want a Rocket/Groot team-up spin-off movie, as they have been my favorite characters.

                    I was shocked to see The Watchers in the movie, wasn't aware they would be in the film, hell for some reason I thought Fox owned the movie rights to them, but I guess not.

                        Re: Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Movie Discussion thread

                        Loved this movie. Loved it, Loved it, Loved it. I actually asked my kid if this tops Winter Soldier as his favorite sequel in the MCU and he said it was close, and I agree with him. That mid-credit scene has me pumped for the next installment. Everyone was so good in this movie, the script was well done, it had everything you needed to enjoy a GotG movie. And now, I must play Legendary using all of the characters, Thanos and the Infinity Gems... excuse me.
                        Now you're on the field callin' me an asshole, 'Cause I roped up your body like a lasso

                        And I could be just like Mr. HK, runnin' cause a melee
                        Bring my team a W, I'm poppin' shots like Pele

                            Yeah wait, how did they get to use the Watchers? I thought they were linked to Fantastic Four?

                            Cannot believe they locked in a third film already. Gunn seems super excited to do the next one. However, it seems the third film will be his last. His facebook post made it seem like he will be helping to produce the cosmic side of MCU.

                            For those who missed the post:

                            Well, this week we start the U.S. press junket, before traveling to Europe at the end of the week. Of course I know some of the questions that come up a lot – “Wasn’t there a lot more pressure dealing with the sequel of a beloved film?” (No, there was less, because this time I knew there was an audience waiting to see it!) and, “What was it like working with Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone?” (Daunting and at times overwhelming – I ran around in my backyard as a kid pretending to be Snake Plissken and John Rambo, so these guys are true icons to me.)
                            But the question that comes up perhaps the most is, “What’s the deal with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and are you going to direct?”
                            Before I was able to honestly answer this, I needed to know it was, in my heart, what I truly felt called to do. There is a history in Hollywood of haphazard endings to trilogies, and I didn’t want to become a part of that dishonorable tradition of pretending the third one doesn’t exist. I couldn’t do it for the money, and I couldn’t do it because it was what other people wanted me to do. I needed to do it because it was what I needed to do. I have never made choices in my career based on anything other than passion and love for the stories and characters, and I didn’t want to start now.
                            So, after many months of ruminations and discussions, I know the answer. I could save this answer for the first, random interviewer to ask me during the press junket but instead I thought I’d share it with the most important people in the Guardiansverse – you, the fans, who have been so incredibly supportive and enthusiastic over the past five years, it has moved me to tears on a regular basis.
                            So, yes, I’m returning to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
                            In the end, my love for Rocket, Groot, Gamora, Star-Lord, Yondu, Mantis, Drax, and Nebula – and some of the other forthcoming heroes – goes deeper than you guys can possibly imagine, and I feel they have more adventures to go on and things to learn about themselves and the wonderful and sometimes terrifying universe we all inhabit. And, like in both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, we will work on creating the story that goes beyond what you expect.
                            My partnership with the folks at Marvel Studios – Kevin Feige, Lou D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Jonathan Schwartz – has been the best of my professional career, and is a huge contributing factor to my decision – as is my relationship to the guys at Disney Studios – Bob Iger, Alan Horn, and Alan Bergman – who have been cheerleading innovation and the pure love of movies from the start. This is the kind of thing you’d expect a director to say about the people who have just hired him, but people who know me know I would never put up working with people I don’t like for a single movie, much less two, and much, much less three. I love them all and appreciate immensely their collaboration. I wake up every day pinching myself that they’d allow this punk rock kid from Missouri to help create this wonderful universe, and to not only allow but encourage creative freedom while doing so.
                            I can’t fricking wait to get started.
                            Much of what’s happened in the MCU for the past ten or so years has been leading, in a big way, to the Avengers’ Infinity War. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will happen after all that. It will conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond. I will be working side-by-side with Kevin Feige and the gang to help design where these stories go, and make sure the future of the Marvel Cosmic Universe is as special and authentic and magical as what we have created so far.
                            I promise you, the fans, I’ll do it all with integrity and love and respect for the characters.
                            Make mine Marvel.
                            We are Groot.
                            Excelsior!
                            Love,
                            James
                            Flowers gathered in the morning,
                            Afternoon they blossom on,
                            Still are withered by the evening:
                            You can be me when I'm gone.
