Still having GotG2 feels
I love how the characters in this movie have so many different ways of saying “I love you” without ever speaking the actual words.
- “Hell yeah, he’s cool.”
- “All I wanted was my sister!”
- “If you tell anyone [we danced together], I’ll kill you.”
- “I’m not leaving without him. I’m not leaving without you.”
- And of course “He may have been your father, but he wasn’t your daddy.”
I love that this movie is about love, in all its many forms.
I love that it’s a movie involving bombastic space battles that’s still somehow incredibly personal and intimate for the characters.
Technically, this is a movie about saving the galaxy, but that’s not what makes Rocket and Yondu fly halfway across the galaxy to pick a fight with a planet. Saving the galaxy isn’t really what motivates any of the characters in this movie. It’s all about saving Peter (and each other). The guy who we first met dancing alone in the ruins of a dead world isn’t alone anymore.
I love that this is a movie about a group of space misfits who love their dork thief leader enough to fight a god to get him back.
