Episode 174 - Geek Embassy Watches Guardians of the Galaxy

May 19, 2017

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

The Geek Embassy returns with our Summer Movie Series. Each month for summer, Mark, Ryan, and I will share our thoughts and critiques of some summer blockbuster movies. We launch the series with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 because of course we are.

We start out our discussion with initial impressions which come back favorable. Ryan mentions the concern that the movie might become the "Baby Groot Show" and how the clever intro sequence put those concerns to rest. From there we spend some time talking about what we love about the movie (a lot) and what we disliked (not much).

We were all impressed with how strong the character development was throughout the movie. They started with some well established and enjoyable characters. A lot is at stake with characters that are beloved from a single movie. Mark observes that this is one sequel that stays in the same league as the original film. That is hard to come by.

Watch and listen and let us know your thoughts in the comments. We are also looking for movies to see in August and September and are open to suggestions!

Next month we see Wonder Woman because of course we are.

Until next time, get your geek on!

Regina, Mark, and Ryan

To Discuss

Topics we considered: Favorite/least favorite moments. Favorite special effect. Favorite song/musical moment. Favorite theme. (Clearly, the importance of chosen family.)
