sareini: Nate Grey from the X-Men comics (Nate Grey)
My brother came down for a visit today and we went to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (yeah, it's a rare occasion where the UK gets a big film release early).

Non-spoiler thoughts:

What a fun film that was! I certainly thought it was as good and as funny as the first one, possibly even better in places. It filled in backgrounds for several characters (Yondu, or Blue Merle as I call him whenever I forget his name - hey, it's better than Blue Henry Lee Lucas - being the primary recipient there), as well as managing to introduce new characters and continue the arcs of established characters without leaving anyone with a thin edge of story wedge. It's also got the regular Stan Lee cameo - and it's one that really quite fits him - and a couple of others as well (Sylvester Stallone and Miley Cyrus among others). And Baby Groot is adorable.

Spoiler Thoughts. BIG spoilers. Read at your own risk )


Trailer-wise, I was personally just glad I didn't have to see yet another Fate of the Furious trailer. Instead, we got Baby Driver, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Wonder Woman. Oh, and Transformers: The Last Knight, wherein Optimus Prime appears to have gone and lost his marbles, and things explode, because Michael Bay.

So all in all, it's been a good day.
