Guardians of the Galaxy 2
Andi and Lise teamed up (kind of) and went to see the movie Guardians of the Galaxy 2. “Team up” in this case means they went to see the movie within a couple days of each other.
In this space opera romp, humor abounds with the Guardians’ team – Peter Quill, Gamora, Rocket, Drax, and Groot – who manage to anger The Sovereign, a super arrogant race of humanoids that, like Terminators, just don’t quit if they feel they’ve been wronged. In addition, the team unravels the mystery of Quill’s parentage (Andi refers to this as the “ Who’s yer daddy” plotline) and they end up having to save the galaxy (literally) from a power-mad entity.
All in the span of about two hours of non-stop action, great ol’ skool music (like the first movie), and awesome special effects, though they do have a request: More Gamora and Nebula, pleeeez!
Andi and Lise also recommend that if you haven’t seen the first (Guardians of the Galaxy), do. Because this one will make much more sense to you and you’ll understand the in-jokes and the backstories. Unless you’re a comics reader and you’re familiar with the series, in which case, have at!
