We saw Guardians of the Galaxy 2 today. In brief and non spoiler'ey.

It was amazing! It was everything I expected and more.

The opening scene is one of the best ever. I loved Groot in the first movie, but baby!Groot has stolen my heart. Also, Drax, and Star-lord, and Rocket, and Gamora, and Mantis and Nebula, and Yondu, and just, every single one of them has my heart. If you like found family, man, this film is for you. Since I saw it Guardians has been my favourite movie/team in the franchise, this has just solidified that.

And you really need to stay for the end credit scenes, of which there are quite a few.

In summary, an excellent movie and an excellent day. Though it was spoiled a little to come out and find someone had cut off the big plastic poppy from the front of our car and just thrown it to the side. I mean, disagree with the poppy appeal all you like, but don't do dick moves and cut them from cars. James reported it, and if the camera caught who did it they'll be banned from the centre, but that all depends if the camera was pointing in the right direction when it happened.

I'm glad you enjoyed Guardians! I'm so looking forward to baby!Groot too.

I'm sorry to hear about your poppy! That sucks. People are so mean-spirited sometimes. :(

FTR,I was OK-neutral abt the 1st movie BUT then I saw the previews for GOTG VOL2 on the big screen and was v. impressed. Maybe it's one of those movies that work better on the big screen?

Anyhoo, I've heard mostly good things abt it so I'll probably end up seeing it once it premieres over here. :)

It really sucks that someone was such as jackass to your poppy, tho. :|
