Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

This week's movie rental was Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 ...

a 2017 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team Guardians of the Galaxy .... It is the sequel to 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy and the fifteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film is written and directed by James Gunn and stars an ensemble cast featuring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, and Kurt Russell. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the Guardians travel throughout the cosmos as they help Peter Quill learn more about his mysterious parentage.

I devoured The Fantastic Four, Thor, Captain America, and the Avengers comics as a kid, but never read Guardians of the Galaxy, so I'm not as much of a fan of this Marvel film series, but it's still pretty fun to watch. The characters are likeable, especially Rocket Raccoon ...

And there's lot's of music too, with Peter getting a whole new set of tunes, like Cat Stevens' Tea for the Tillerman ...

One of the nicest CGI/music scenes was when the characters arrived on the planet created by Peter's father, while George Harrison plays in the background ...

I'm looking forward to the coming Avenger's movie in which most of the characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the Guardians of the Galaxy, will meet in what might be the final film.

The movie received good reviews. Here's one from Richard Roeper - ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ brings the funny and the feels

And here's a trailer ...
