Again I am going to keep this spoiler free but I am going to allow the comment section to contain spoilers.

Last night we ventured into the city in two groups to see the Marvel Family and Friends screening of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Peter left first because he had some meetings at Marvel. Caroline and I took the train because Caroline had school.

Short version, it is an amazing visual feast with an awesome script that does all the characters justice.

Someone after the screening said, “This is the Marvel Film that feels most like you are watching a comic book” and I whole heartedly agree.

I was rather impressed that all the questions set up early in the film are answered by the end of the film along with some set up for the next film which was green lit six days ago.

They also made me care about some characters that I liked from the previous film but didn’t care what happened to them.

Yes, Baby Goot or more like Toddler Groot is amazing and cute and all the things you want him to be. I think Marvel/Disney figured out that they missed on the possibilities of marketing Groot from the first film and are going to make up for lost time with this film. Have you seen the amount of Baby Groot stuff there is for sale? It is staggering.

We learn more about the backgrounds of our characters while the film moves forward. I have to give them kudos for filling in some blanks without it feeling like the movie came to a halt so we can get some backstory in.

There are several Marvel characters introduced in this one including Mantis brilliantly played by Pom Klementieff and Ego played by Kurt Russell who probably would have been cast as Star Lord if they had made this film in the 80s.

The soundtrack is amazing. It’s like I made another mix tape for myself.

You have to stay all the way through to the end. There are a number of credit scenes and the credits are fun to watch. It does need to be seen on the big screen because there is a lot going on in the corners.

Stan’s cameo answers a number of questions that I didn’t even know I needed answered.

Two thumbs way up.
