    I think that's what appealed to a lot of people.

    There's enough marvel movies out there that all take a more serious tone, ( I.e Captain America, Iron Man franchises, Spider man etc)

    yeah soundtrack was super weak compared to #1.

    KK: I love the first movie because it was fun as well and an anti-hero movie that was actually done right.

    The second one was a lot of rehashed jokes and forced conflict between the main characters. Uggggh, I hate squeals, they are almost universally bad (unless its a planned trilogy)

    I agree completely. I know a lot of people who loved it the first time but then not as much on subsequent viewings. I find that the humour is more over the top or kind of childish which isn't really my favourite but I do still like the movies overall anyway.

    Oh and Baby Groot is the best.

    Yes. I believe you're the only one.

Yondu was great. But I think Gamora was underused. Drax was useless...as was Baby Groot. Nebula had an interesting storyline but that actresses performance was not good.

    It sounds like I'm being really hard on it...I had fun with it... But I just wanted to love it, and I didn't.
    I loved it. I really liked the first too, but this was on another level for me. It was legitimately funny, it looked great, it was a lot of fun, and it was actually kind of moving in the third act. They were able to really explore the characters that we were introduced to in the first movie. I think it's right there with the first Avengers as my favourite in the Marvel universe.

    Every Marvel movie is either awful or just mediocre. Literally all of them.

    Incorrect. The Winter Soldier is amazing.

    I'm a DC guy personally, but Marvel has had a few good movies:

    The first 3 X-men movies.
    The last couple Captain America series (especially Civil War).
    The first couple Iron Man movies.

    I lied. I just saw Logan this week and it was awesome.

    Everything else you two mentioned is just mediocre though.

It really doesn't try to be biased.

    Depends what you consider a "Marvel" movie. All the X-Men movies are produced by 20th Century Fox Marvel Entertainment not Marvel Studios/Disney and therefore exist in a seperate continuity from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The MCU movies seem to have a pretty consistent floor (hasn't been a true stinker since Hulk) but I agree with you that they generally don't aim very high either. Captain America: Civil War was pretty damn good though. I'd certainly elevate that above the field.

    I even liked the first Fantsatic 4 movie before Fox went fucking bizarro on it. 2nd one sucked... the attempted reboot was downright shit.

    Idk what you guys are talking about, I thought Guardians of the Galaxy was awesome, just as good as the first one, and it had more Gamora, mmmmmm.
