    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    ★★★★½

    Today was my last day at work before my family and I move away from New York, and I couldn't think of a better way to end my last day at that theater than to watch one of my favorite films of the year with my father.

    "Dawn Of Justice" is one of the most batshit insane blockbusters I think I've ever witnessed. I can't believe Warner Brothers actually greenlit this and thought it would work for a general audience.

    This isn't a Superhero movie. This is one part political drama, one part GrindHouse horror show with a giant pissed off Ben Affleck as the main villain, and then ends in a giant cluster fuck of Zack Snyder being Zack Snyder in more ways than…
