📽️ Watched Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
I remember when this came out hearing friends debate about the extent to which it was a rehash of the first movie, with most people feeling like it had little new to offer. I liked it and found it fresh enough, but I think I’ve only seen the first one once when it was in theaters.
I like how there are only a couple of new dynamics here - one of the nice things about a sequel is that mostly everybody knows each other already so they can spend more of the movie doing stuff, not just running around adding new members to the team.
Baby Groot is precious, Mantis is adorable, Drax is hilarious, and I was sort of less interested in everybody else this time but, like I said, I did like it.

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.
We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
