So I saw Guardians of the Galaxy yesterday, and it was so much fun! Now, I have a very forgiving "sense of disbelief" for almost anything I see. I usually am not overly critical, nor do I really overthink movies or TV shows I see. I just sit back and enjoy the ride.
And what a ride it was! The entire gang is back and the jokes seemed to roll off even more in this second installment. They are a family now, and with that, no one gets a break - well, Gamora does because she would kick anyone's ass who dares tease her too much.
Baby Groot made this movie for me. Who would have thought I would say a tiny tree with huge eyes would make me laugh, cry, cringe, and everything in between?

I wasn't sure about Mantis, but she grew on me quickly. Her sense of innocence carried her through the entire movie. The rapport between her and Drax was classic.
I appreciated the fact that Gamora and Nebula hashed out their deathly issues, but they didn't become best friends. It eased a little bit of the tension, but I still wonder, if given the chance, if Nebula doesn't attempt to kill Gamora again. I must admit I am a huge fan of Karen Gillan from Doctor Who, so I am ecstatic to see someone from the Doctor franchise continue on to be part of a great thing.
The team is such fun, and I didn't want it to end. I look forward to more adventures from the Guardians, and maybe, just maybe! Nathan Fillion will be somewhere in their future. (A girl can hope, you know!_
