“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” or “James Gunn Has A Kurt Russell Dad Fetish”- my fuckin review

Here is my review for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2“. This is the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy and here was my review for that https://eddieraysmoviereviews.wordpress.com/2014/08/07/guardians-of-the-galaxy-or-firefly-star-wars-a-fun-ride-my-fuckin-review/.

Okay Star Lord is back with all the gang and this time they are bitching. Just kidding they bitched the last time too.  Now the gang is being hired to do good things for galaxy but they are still thieves and getting into trouble and shit. Along the way Star Lord finally runs into his long-lost dad Kurt Russell, who has been looking for him since he was like 10 years old. Kurt is also a god. Meanwhile Yondu and Rocket are assholes together with Baby Groot, but they learn why they are assholes this time. Star Lord and Gamora get closer over the TV show Cheers. Drax is hanging with a bug lady named Mantis, and Nebula hates her sister Gamora. In the end Star Lord learns what a father really is and the real villain is dealing with honest emotions. P.S. Sylvester StalloneVing RhamesMichelle YeohMiley Cyrus and Michael Rosenbaum show up! WHAT THE FUCK! 

Okay so the Guardian movies are fun, over-the-top and follow no pattern. They are funny and you will laugh at that shit. You will love all the characters and will be entertained by all of them and you would hangout with their asses. They are all fleshed out more this time except for Star Lord. He really takes a backseat to everyone. He seemed to be the focus last time and now the rest of the cast gets their time to shine or what the fuck ever. Kurt Russell is Kurt and you love him for it. I mean you love him in anything he does. He plays a god in this and you buy it. I think that James Gunn had some weird fantasy for Kurt to be his father in real life or some shit. Then I looked around the audience and all these dudes looked emotional and I realized they wanted Kurt to be their father too. Weird. Everyone wanted Daddy Kurt.

Meanwhile I loved how Yondu and Rocket had their moments about being assholes and why they were really assholes. They weren’t just mean the worlds mad them mean. This film was really about relationships and honest emotions. Sisters, Fathers and sons, and friendships. That’s the thing, the bad guy is almost not that important. What’s import is the good guys and what they are dealing with on the inside. Too real. James Gunn is giving it to you. For a minute this throws you because you are used to a check list in these super hero movies and this one derails from that for a while. It’s still kinda of there so chill the fuck out. Meanwhile it’s happy and sad and action pack and the songs they chose are hot. The score is weak as fuck though, just like most of the ones for Marvel movies. They all sound so generic and tired. Just so interchangeable. It’s so disappointing. The composer’s aren’t bad either so I feel like Producers are coming in and telling them to sound this way. What the fuck is going on. Fix your scores. They are fucking terrible. I blame Marvel now, not the composers. Anyway the movie is a lot of fun and James Gunn you have fun with your films. The jokes are a little one note sometimes. Meaning they are very similar to the first films jokes, and we heard that shit before. Its like okay, we get it, come up with some new ones, etc. So if you loved the first one, then you will love the second one. Watch them back to back and you will be happy. I will buy this bitch.

The Trailer:

The Facts:

A. Chris Pratt is cool, but was probably my least favorite character this time in the movie. Everyone else was so much more entertaining this time. 

B. James Gunn directed this film. He also directed  Slither and Super. He wrote Tromeo and JulietScooby-Doo– the movie,  Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed– the movie, and Dawn of the Dead– 2004. He is a fun director and really has fun with his movies and the dialogue. Here he is talking about suicide. REAL as FUCK!

His brother Sean Gunn is in the movie too as Karolin.

C. Sylvester Stallone showed up and I hope he is in the next movie too! 

D. Kurt Russell is a national treasure. He is amazing in movies and we all love him. I do think the director maybe wanted him to be his dad growing up then I realized maybe a lot of dudes in the audience felt the same way. Weird. Daddy issues. 

E. Tyler Bates composed score (Dawn of the Dead 2004, The Devil’s RejectsSlither, Rob Zombie’s HalloweenDoomsdayHalloween IIGuardians of the GalaxyAtomic BlondeSamurai Jack). He is stuff is usually moody, dark, generic, and atmospheric. Which is not really a good thing. This is more light-hearted and actiony but still generic. His best stuff is Samurai Jack honestly. Maybe he gets to do what he wants on that. I think Marvel is stepping in and controlling these scores and ruining them. They are generic and interchangeable. Such a let down. Marvel are you scores are trash. 

Here is a sample from the Guardians 2. 

F. I love this song from the soundtrack.

G. Favorite lines. “I don’t know Cheers “and “I meant trash Panda”.

H. Omg this weird fan fiction shit is already for the movie. Here is Yondu and Star Lord as boy. Adopted father and son. Haha

I. Michelle Yeoh is at the end of this movie as Aleta Ogord and I pray she is in the next movie. She is amazing!

I. This poster is great. It’s colorful and you would hang this shit on your wall.
