Phoenix Clouden’s review published on Letterboxd:
"You shouldn't have killed my mom and smashed my Walkman."
I love this movie. Upon rewatch, it's not as good as the first one, but it still has its moments throughout like Baby Groot trying to find Yondu's fin or Drax's not-so-subtle put downs on Mantis.
There's also great character moments that build towards the payoffs we see in Infinity War and sets up a lot for Vol. 3 which after so much time in-between, should be an amazing film.
I really like Kurt Russell as Ego, and thought his villain was a considerable threat although quite predictable. The visuals in this film are a little better than the first and the humor still lands. There's a lot to love in this film although it's not as strong as I'd originally thought.
