    Illumination Entertainment makes such lazy movies. This is no different.

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    ★★★★

    I really enjoyed this movie, in part because it felt less like a puzzle piece in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and more like a natural continuation of the story involving these characters. More at Heat Vision and Slashfilm.

    "How did it feel, strapping that thing to your back and flying like a bat out of hell?"

    "Well, it's the closest I'll ever get to heaven, Mr. Hughes."

    What an exciting, uncynical, legitimately fun this movie still is, 22 years after the fact.

    I think that maybe the best part of this incredible film is Jon Brion's drum-heavy build-up to the phone call between Sandler and PSH. It knows how explosive the call is, and it knows how explosive we want the call to be.

    My God, what a movie.
