Disclosure: I was invited to a pre-screening of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 by Disney Pictures. All opinions are my own.
It’s finally here, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hit theaters this weekend!
Best movie poster ever!
Guardians of the Galaxy is Brandon’s favorite Marvel movie, and I was so excited to take him to the screening last week, before Vol. 2 hit theaters (Yay, cool mom points for me!).
I will admit, when the first Guardians of the Galaxy came out, I was not really interested in seeing it (I know, I know, what was wrong with me?). I ended up watching it on DVD at a friend’s house one night, and oh my goodness: The music! Chris Pratt! The unconventional heroes! The music! Groot! The humor! And did I mention the music?! I loved it (how could I have doubted Marvel?), and off we went to buy our own copy of the DVD. The boys and I watch it often, and we we were all looking forward to the day we could see our friends Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and of course Groot again.
From the start of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, I knew it would be just as entertaining as the first. Three words: Baby Groot Dancing. But there is so much more to this movie than a cute sapling busting some moves. There is more of what we love from the first GotG installment: lots of humor, continuing romantic tension between Star Lord and Gamora, and a few surprises that you don’t see coming. And of course, a killer soundtrack!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is rated PG-13 and is written and directed by James Gunn. It stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Tommy Flanagan, Laura Haddock, Sylvester Stallone, and Kurt Russell.

Go see it and come back and tell us what you think. Look out for the cameos, and make sure you stay until the very end, as this movie features FIVE mid and post credit scenes!
