Cultjer roundup: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

I told Gamora how when I was a kid I used to pretend David Hasselhoff was my dad. He's a singer and actor from earth, really famous guy. Yondu didn't have a talking car, but he did have a flying arrow. He didn't have a beautiful voice of an angel, but he did have the whistle of one. Both Yondu and David Hasselhoff went on kick-ass adventures and hooked up with hot women, and fought robots. I guess David Hasselhoff did kinda end up being my dad after all, only it was you, Yondu.

'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2' is An Invigorating Second Chapter to the Series

When James Gunn and Marvel Studios introduced us to the Guardians of the Galaxy back in the summer of 2014, nobody knew what to expect. I certainly didn't know what to expect. Now that I'm more of a Marvel fan I understand the Guardians more. Back in 2014 I didn't know who they were. Yet this film went on to be my favorite Marvel film until its sequel.

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" Review

The Guardians of the Galaxy are back. Following the mega-success of the August 2014 debut, Marvel launched plans for a sequel to serve as the lift-off of the 2017 Summer Movie Season. But like The Avengers with “Age of Ultron”, “Guardians" can't hit the high notes a second time, due to a less than compelling story and action scenes that aren’t nearly as exciting or entertaining as in the original.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) - Review

Right Now In A Galaxy Not So Far Away... — In 2014 director James Gunn unleashed Marvel Studios' Guardians Of The Galaxy upon us and completely defied expectations, if anyone even had any to begin with. Being at best a C class Marvel Comics property, Gunn turned in a film that snuck under the radar and blew audiences away with a stunningly well crafted mix of space opera, subversive comedy, gorgeous eye candy and balls to the wall action. Gunn deftly balanced snarky humour with cool pop culture references and moments of genuine pathos and for this particular critic was a film that got exponentially better on repeat viewings. I unreservedly love the first film and confirmed this love of it with a rewatch the day before seeing the sequel. It's so much better than it has any right to be and was quite rightly declared by more cheekily discerning reviewers, the best Star Wars film since Return Of The Jedi upon its 2014 release.

James Gunn Talks More About Star Lord's Father in 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2'

Star-Lord, played by Chris Pratt, is the son of Ego the Living Planet, who is being played by Kurt Russell. While the main character being the son of a living, actual planet sounds utterly ridiculous, it somehow falls under the umbrella of, "it's Marvel, so it works." No one is going to question this planet having had a child when they see it developed on the big screen.
