One-Minute Movie Review: Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2

I’m not a movie critic nor do I pretend to be one. However, I am a consumer with an opinion to share. When I get a chance to catch a movie, I’ll come back and cut the fat. No purple prose about plot and dialogue. No patting my own back about characterization. Just cold facts, according to me, whether you should pay out a ton of cash for a good time at the movies within a minute.

Is Guardian of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 worth your hard-earned dough?


Here’s why: Although the jokes recycle themselves from the previous film and the pacing’s a bit off, what you will get is a bit of heart and laughter in its sequel. Baby Groot’s as cute as ever. Rocky Raccoon’s as stubborn as ever. Gamora and Peter Quill (aka Star Lord) continues the “Will They or Won’t They” drama. What differs from the first is Peter’s discovery of the word, family. Expect to see Kurt Russell giving the movie a go alongside cameos from Sylvester Stallone, Vin Rhames, and Michelle Yeoh (Trying to fix that whole Dr. Strange debacle with the Ancient One, Marvel?)

How can you not love that little snookums?

Make sure you stay. While most Marvel films give you one or two mid or after credit scenes, GOTG V2 gifts five, yes five, credits.

What is my take? 3.5 out of 5 Hues

Did I make it under a minute?

Thanks, Dax! I mean that…literally.


Hello Everyone, I'm Latanya aka Crafty Scribbles. I'm a reader. Well, obviously this is a book blog. Reading and enjoying the process is a must. Why not share my joy with others like me - or unlike me, pleasant conversation and all being key? What's there to know? Well, along with reading, I write stories. I'd like to publish them (I've published poetry, which is cool, too). But, until I do, I hope to share my views on the writings of others. In my personal life, I teach as well as work as a wife and mom to two boys (Yes, these count as work, too!). I currently live in a Los Angeles suburb, but I travel and my mind expands to to other places on the globe. Care to join me? I promise to be fair, honest, and respectful. I'm not here to cut fellow writers. But, I do believe in sharing critiques that help others to grow. So, if you're looking for drama, I'm sorry I can't help you with that request. I hope you enjoy your stay whoever you are.
