    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    ★★★★

    Throughly entertaining big-tent circus show, in the kind of world I always wanted SF to create. Dirty, raw, tough, mean, real, with honest emotions. Still living within a formulaic approach, but approaches it with humor and a wink, and gives nod to real feelings.

    Had a few clunky moments in the in-betweens, but the depiction of Jim Crow South was so powerful, and the centering of the movie in the experience of these women was so well done, that it really came together in a beautiful way. Nerds to the rescue! I hope the success of this film sparks a thousand more stories of women in the space program.

    I tried to find this movie on vinyl, but all the fucking dj's are hoarding it.

    The Hipster's lament:

    If I give it an serious low score as a bad movie, than people won't think I "get" how funny it is. If I give it an ironic high score, then people might think I actually "liked" the film. Oh, Irony! Wicked muse.
