There is simply no other movie like Guardians of the Galaxy, well, wait, it might be possible that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 might be my next most favorite. From crushing on Chris Pratt to lovin’ Groot, there’s just so much fun in the Guardians of the Galaxy and I know that it has to be passed on into the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Now, what I can share with you is what was shared with me, and I can tell you that the release can not happen soon enough. I have played the Guardians of The Galaxy over and over so much I can actually speak all of their lines, so I need some new dialogue, please! Lavishly live life out loud, and mark your calendars for the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Are you ready for Baby Groot, and the trash-talking between Quill and Rocket. There’s more though, way more, and I refuse to ruin it for you. It is quite possible that this Vol. 2 is better than the first. The characters are harmonious together, the ups, downs, and surprises will delight (can I use that word to describe this movie?) and you won’t stop munching on popcorn the whole time.
Unlike some other sequels this one held together quite well, and I will say that the characters stayed true to form, the few surprises and the ‘cameo’ definitely were my favorite. Be sure to look for Pacman at the end, as the movie dwindles to the end, as it plays well into the humor laid out by Quill!
The success of this movie definitely has to do with the ability to reach the differing ages through snips of older television series, dated music and things that were iconic from back in the day. Additionally, the Guardians are each well-played. ENJOY!
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 marks the Studios first in-home title to release in stunning 4K Ultra HD format, providing consumers with the ultimate home entertainment experience with next-generation high dynamic range visuals and Dolby Atmos immersive audio.
