Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out! Have you had a chance to watch it yet? I went last night with a friend and I have to be honest, I was a bit nervous going into it as the first one was so good. I wasn’t sure how they could top it. Well, they did! I absolutely loved it! I was laughing pretty much from the beginning of the film to the very end. And I was laughing out loud. I’m quite sure the entire theater would hear me.

The writing was great and the one-liners seemed to hit their mark just about every time. And Groot! Oh my goodness, I can’t get over how cute he was in this movie. Can someone create one so I can raise it?

This time the story follows the gang to meet Peter Quill’s (played by Chris Pratt) father. I must admit that I think I like the comic version a bit more than what we got with this film, but that’s okay. I still really enjoyed the movie and can’t wait to watch it again. I will also own it on blu-ray once it is released.

James Gunn was able to keep things fresh while keeping everything we loved about the first film. And Rocket (played by Bradley Cooper) had a much more rounded character this time around. In fact, all of the characters seemed a bit more mature than the last time we saw them.

There are a few things I didn’t like about this movie, but overall it was fantastic. If you are looking for a fun movie that will keep laughing from beginning to end, then check out Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 this weekend.

What did you think of the movie? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
