WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEW: Marvel’s “GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2”

Hello there ladies and gentelnerds! Long time no see. I gots lots of catching up to do seeing as to that I’ve been pretty ghost.. So why dont we start with a brand new edition of “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!” todays movie?.. 

“GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Vol 2”

THE STORY: Its been a few months since the first film and the gang are Guardians for Hire. After a job for an alien race known as The Sovereign and their leader Ayiasha.

goes sideways, The team find themselves on the run. With a little help from the Mysterious EGO, claiming to be Star Lords father. The team discovers just what it actually means to be Family! And that its not only blood that can bind people together.

The story in itself, honestly? Isn’t the strongest thing about the movie. Its what happens within the story that propels everything forward. Yondu’s story had much more going on, yet was not the main focus. The Father-Son story between Ego and Peter was.. I dont want to say forced, but it was rushed at some points and it wasn’t very strong. Kurt and Chris were excellent and did a great job with what they were given. It just wasn’t the strongest part of the film. The backbone and heart of the movie was the characters. You can tell it was the characters that James Gunn cared for and has a tremendous amount of respect for. So the main plot suffered for that fact just a bit.

THE CAST:

Fantastic! Wonderful! A true treat. Everyone was on point. Batista was a delight. They gave him so much more to work with and he ran with it. Micheal Rooker’s Yondu 

has become probably my favorite character of the film, only second to of course..

BABY GROOT! My god he was so damn adorable. He stole my heart and every scene he appeared in. 

Sylvester Stallone’s cameo (possible spoiler alert!) as… 

Starhawk, was, surprisingly delightful. He could have easily mailed in a performance.. But he didn’t. He acted. He put his heart into it, and i really appreciate it! I would love to see him continue apperaing in the Cosmic MCU. 

Kurt Russel’s EGO

 was really cool. He played the role as true to character as they could make him. I really cant go too much further in to Ego without spoiling anything. But, Kurt was great. 

Ayiasha of The Sovereign.. 

Too much to say that would border on being a spoiler. But she was very interesting. And i wonder if we will ever see her again. I would be interested in her return.

THE POSITIVES:

The Cast. Baby Groot. Yondu. The Cameos. Oh god! That Stan Lee cameo was fucking epic! I honestly can’t go in to it here.. But oh yeah… I will be digging deep in to that scene. The comedy was top tier. Dave Batista’s Drax was a comedic highlight. The deep cosmic cuts. The 5 or 4 after credits scenes were the best.

THE NEGATIVES: A surprisingly weak plot. The 2nd and 3rd acts was poorly rushed. The soundtrack, Awesome Mix Vol.2 isnt as strong (at least for me) as Vol.1. Non of the tracks stuck with me as much as the first ones did. But that could just be me. The movie would have benefited more from a longer run time.

OVERALL: Another Marvel Studios Masterwork. I cant say its better then the first film, but it can stand shoulder to shoulder with the first film. Its great. In comparison with other Marvel sequels, IE: Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 2, Iron Man 3 and Avengers 2. Its better then all of those. Its a strong sequel. Not as strong as Winter Soldier, but its a great sequel. A Must See for everyone!! 

I score “GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2” πŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸ’« 8 and 1/2 stars. 

What did you folks think of GOTG2? Hit me up! Comment below, leave a like and a follow. Thx for reading folks.

Until next time.. Peace Out!

“FOX STUDIOS, ACQUIRES MOVIE RIGHTS FOR STAN LEE BIOPIC!”

It has been reported recently, that 20th Century Fox is planning on moving forward with a Stan Lee biopic. And i use the term, ‘Biopic’ a little loosely here..
According to reports. The film will be based on Stan Lee’s life through the 70’s and be an, ‘Action Adventure’ type film..

WHAT.. THE SERIOUS FUCK?! 

Why does that sound like the dumbest idea ever!? 

“It will be a cross between ‘Kingmen’ and Roger Moore’s 007 ” executives behind the movie are stating. And Stan Lee himself and his company ‘POW’ along with a buisness partner, will be executive producing the film… 
Leave it to FOX to plan on something so damn stupid! Why the fuck isnt Marvel Studio’s itself working on a Stan Biopic!? I have more faith in them at telling a more accurate and by the book biography film, then i do the people that made THIS!..

“NUFF SAID!”

Not too long ago i posted a story about a fan made picture of Bryan Cranston as Stan Lee, 

I would much prefer a True to Life Biopic of Stan Lee, with real stories from real events in his life! 

Not some bull shit crafted by the idiot executives at 20TH CENTURY FOX! This idea sounds like its the Worst! Whether Stan is attached to it or not.. I. Dont. Like. It! 
What do you folks think? Is an Action Adventure film set in the 70’s based on Stan Lee, the way you want to see a movie about him? Hit me up and let me know your thoughts.

So, until next time.. Peace Out! 

“STAN LEE BIOPIC RUMORS?!”

These are in fact nothing but Rumors and speculations based off of a single Fan Made Pictute! If there is any more news behind it.. I haven’t found it yet!

So!.. Here’s the picture..

OMG YES!! I KNOW RIGHT!!

When I saw this picture I thought this was freakin awesome! A brilliant idea! Bryan Cranston would be a inspired choice to play Stan The Man Lee. He has the look and the talent to play the part.

But the (possible) casting of Cranston as Stan, brings to question.. Who do they get for Jack King Kirby? Who do they get for Ditko? How about Simon and Siegal? Or Kane?! All these legends of Comics WILL be featured in a Biopic of Stan Lee, there’s no doubt about that!

Taking that under consideration, we could be looking at an Oscar worthy film, with an Oscar caliber cast!

A Stan Lee Biopic film wild be something worth seeing! Stan has lived through some of the most amazing times of Β history! Growing up through the Great Depression. Experiencing WW2. Dealing with Fredric Wertham’s ‘Seduction Of The Innocent’ during the 1950’s. Making working in Comics a bit of a living hell for any and all writers and artists of that time. Dealing with the ups and downs of the industry, not knowing if they would still have a job one day to the next. Stan Lee’s life lends to a Epic Biography Film. If you really need any further proof.. Β Check out the Documentary, “WITH GREAT POWER: THE STAN LEE STORY” and you tell me, wether or not you want Bryan Cranston to play Stan Lee in a movie!

So, Until next time folks… Peace Out!
