Jason Clement posted a topic in TV, Movie, Blu-RaySo I just saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 last night, aaaaaand I have to say I was a little apprehensive going in. Sequels are a really tricky thing these days; just look at Iron Man 2. Or Spider-Man 3. Heck, even X-Men: The Last Stand. Everyone was hyped for these films because their predecessors were great, but as they showed, studios can get cocky and think they have everything in the bag when they really don't. I'm happy to say Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, in most ways, is just about on par with the original film. Or in other words, it's great -- you should go see it if you're into comic book films and liked the first one. Here's a few quick thoughts (spoilers will be marked as so)-- - I honestly really believe GotG and Vol 2 are preeeetty close in quality, if not equal, but I will say that each one has their strengths. Imo, GotG has a better pacing and overall plot, but Vol. 2 has better character development and narrative arcs. Both movies have great epilogues that wrap up the story well. - The main villain is probably Marvel Studios' best (and most reprehensible) villain to date. Their motive actually checks out and makes sense; they're not a mustache-twirling villain simply for convenience. - Kurt Russell is great. He should be in more modern stuff, but I'm glad he's making a comeback with both this and the recent Fast and Furious movies. - Elizabeth Debicki, who plays the Sovereign's gold-skinned Ayesha, is freakishly tall in real life at 6'3". In the movie, Gunn had her wear heels, which increased her height to a staggering 6'7". After seeing this, I'd say Guardians of the Galaxy is currently Marvel Studios' best franchise yet. The movies are 2 for 2, and -- though you could make a very real argument that the Captain America trilogy is better -- I think that the Cap movies are pretty interchangeable as far as which is the best. What did you guys think of the movie?
