Tanner Reviews Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

GotG_Vol2_posterI FINALLY got back to the movie theater. While I plan to go to see Alien: Covenant this week since I am a glutton for punishment and watching everything I love die, I did get a chance to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, so that makes me happy. What more can really be said about Guardians of the Galaxy at this point? It is easily the best franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I will challenge anyone that says otherwise. The story is great, the chemistry is there, and overall it is just an amazing movie. Vol 2 does have a few problems with it on a minuscule level.

Last week I reviewed the 1998 version of Godzilla as a sort of precursor to this review. After watching that and then checking out the most recent incarnation of the gigantic reptile… I have to say that I see very little difference between the two… Well if you also combined it with Godzilla vs. Mothra. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing in my book. As I mentioned in my review, I did enjoy the Emmerich movie as a popcorn watch a lizard tear apart New York type of movie and Godzilla vs. Mothra is arguably the best film in the franchise… But when you release a movie that was supposed to reignite the franchise that was killed by the Emmerich film and combine what is considered to be one of the worst Godzilla movies with one of the best… Well then you have a bit of a problem on your hands in this critics opinion.
