Movie review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Hey all! I’m back with another movie review, one that recently (to be fair, it was recently when I wrote this post) hit the theaters. I saw it Thursday right after it came out, and I was so excited! I could’ve gone to the prerelease Wednesday night, but those tickets were a lot more expensive… Nevertheless I really enjoyed this movie!

Quick add: I had written this entire post but then my laptop fucked up and deleted it ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I’ll write it again, but I had added some details I cannot remember any more so I’m sorry if this kinda sucks. I’ll probably watch it again sometime and give you all a proper review!


Imdb link:ย Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Here’s the trailer:

Summary:ย The Guardians of the Galaxy are viewed as heroes since saving the planet Xandar. While they continue their guarding, they try to find out who Peter Quill’s (Chris Pratt) dad was. Once they do, everything seems fine, but once they realize this might be the biggest problem they’ve ever have encountered, it’s already too late. However, it’s not stopping them for trying to save the Galaxy a second time.

This movie was one of the few I was really looking forward to, ever since watching the first movie! And, not so surprisingly, it lived up to my expectations. Although I must add that I’m aย hugeย fan of anything Marvel, so I might have it wrong.

However, this movie started out great already, and only got better. I laughed a lot of times, was surprised a lot, especially after finding out who Peter’s dad is. I expected something bad would happen, but it was worse, and it was amazing. Peter Quill hasn’t changed a bit, except he now lets out his feelings for Gamora a bit more. Gamora however, doesn’t respond to them, which isn’t anything new.

Drax and Rocket are even more hilarious in this movie, and every time Peter and Rocket had an argument, I found myself shaking with laughter.

Baby Groot was a character I was really looking forward to seeing. I loved how the first movie ended with Groot, and Baby Groot is just so cute!

Basically, it’s another epic story about the Guardians saving the Galaxy and fighting their own personal battles, with the Awesome Mix Vol. 2 as playlist. If you haven’t seen it, I recommend that you do! (but please watch part 1 first)

Have you seen this movie? What did you think of it?

T5W: Fictional jobs you’d want to have

Heya! I am a day too late with this (almost a whole one, since it’s 11pm actually) and I’m sorry but the moving has been REALLY hectic. I hope to be back on track around next week, but I’m working full days from Sunday till next Friday (meaning my only day off to unpack is Saturday), so I can’t promise anything, sadly.

The Top 5 Wednesday is created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @Thoughts On Tomes. You can find the Goodreads group here.

–Any fictional career you’d want to have? Remember, T5W is always open to movies, tv, and video games as well.

Supernatural: Hunterย

I’d love to tag along with Sam and Dean Winchester (and Castiel of course!) โค Although there are some really scary things going around, it’d be awesome

 

Doctor Who: Companion

cozdygexaaacyzc

I really love Doctor Who (and yes, I still have to start my rewatch and this time, actually finish the series for as far as possible!!) and it’d be amazing to travel with the Doctor!

 

X-Men: Teacherย 

xmenxaviersschool

I am generally not one to love teaching or anything but Xavier’s School For Gifted Youngsters is just wayy too awesome to not be part of it ๐Ÿ˜›

 

Avengers: Avenger

tumblr_nkpcouwohh1rn8j6eo4_500

Fighting for my life -and my friends too, to save the world?! Hell yes! Except the part where Civil War happens (just thinking about it hurts me again aaahhh) it would be amazing.

 

Vampire Academy: Dhampir

Yes, I am obsessed with this series, but being a Dhampir sounds awesome. You get to learn how to protect someone at all times, and yes, it may suck a little because love isn’t really possible, but honestly, it would be really cool.

Did you agree with the jobs I chose? Whatย jobs would you like to have? Tell me!

I am only writing my Book Traveling Thursdays post after posting this and then going to sleep! Tomorrow, I gotta wake up at 7 again, move the last things to my own apartment, then work from 12 to 8.30 pm and then I’ll finally be able to enjoy an evening in my new house! ๐Ÿ™‚
