Big Summer Movies Part 5. (Part 1)

And, we're back again!
A year to the day*, in fact!!
(*See Civil War below)

Previous cycles.

And, we start off with....

Guardians Of The Galaxy: Vol. 2 (2017)

Previously on MCU phase 3....
And previously on Guardians Of The Galaxy....

I'm Mary Poppins, y'all!! :-D
  • Doesn't capture the perfection on Guardians 1, but damn, it's good!
  • B+ rather than an A.
  • If you do the math on the flashbacks and flash-forwards, it happens in 2014, so it's only  a month after the first one.
  • Gunn knows how to squeeze the tears out of you. There's choke-up moments.
  • Everyone gets a moment to shine, even frigging Nebula!!
  • Chock full of Easter eggs, and 5 pre/mid/after credits scenes.
  • Best Stan Lee cameo ever!
  • Howard The Duck is back!
  • More Baby Groot than you can shake a stick at!
  • Setups for both Guardians 3, and Infinity War.
  • Stallone is going to figure big in Guardians 3.
  • More 70's and 80's nostalgia than you can shake a stick at! 
  • 8 year old me would have worshiped these movies.

Definitely go see it!
Well, if you fell in love with the first one, of course you're going to go see it.
And...who the Hell didn't like the first one?
Nazis, probably.

Next time, this again, or Alien: Covenant.

As I mentioned here, if I see the same movie twice or thrice, I'll update it in comments of the first time, instead of doing a whole separate review.
Linking all those links has just gotten too clunky.
Takes me 30-40 minutes constructing the post before I can even write my fuggin' review.
