oh my god. just… the ONLY time we see todd and ken interact the entire series, these two characters that have so perfectly fucking mirrored each other at so many different points, and it’s when they both share this look and little shrug like ‘welp guess i should go look after my weird holistic buddy’ and that’s that and it’s like this pure moment of understanding. perf
This scene with Dorian is my favorite scene from this series so far. It completely changed my view of Dorian, showcasing a much more vulnerable, pained side to him. Meanwhile, this scene also reflects our society so well, and that’s what makes it so heartbreaking. Children, having another sexuality or preference, and their parents being so unacceptable to it, still living in their bubble of tradition and culture. How can a parent not want to see their child be happy? How can they try to change their children; forcing them to be something they’re not?
“…I just - don’t understand what’s going on. I’ve tried to see him, talk to him, but everytime I do he runs off.”
I wanted to draw this ever since I saw James Le Lacheur on stage. Because she completely tapped into those insecure Scorpius emotions and feelings asldkjfhsak also how does one even draw staircases and robes

First up, the music.
I enjoyed the music in this film, it was very fitting, with awesome songs in fight scenes, and mellow songs in calm scenes. It just fit the mood so well. While I admit it’s not as memorable as the first one, because, come on, you can’t top Hooked on a Feeling, it still does have its moments like Mr. Blue Sky, Brandy, Surrender, etc. Overall, 4.8/5.
Next, the characters. Spoilers follow, you’ve been warned.
Okay, I love, love, love Baby Groot. He’s adorable in every way and should be protected forever. And Teen Groot is even better.
Space Dads and Mom are great too. They each get their own character development, and I love that. Rocket learns he’s a bit like Yondu, Drax is teaching Mantis how to adapt to society, using things he learned from his family, Gamora lets go of her rivalry with Nebula, and Peter…
Oh, Peter. You poor guy. Your mom was killed by your blood father who is evil and your surrogate father was protecting you all along. And you lost 2 dads in not even 10 minutes. Dang. That hurts.
And as for Yondu, whoops, I mean Mary Poppins, what a badass. He stole his scenes in the movie, being a great dose of sorrow and laughter. I enjoyed his performance here, and it’s a shame we won’t see him again.
Nebula’s already cool, so not much to say about her. I’m glad she’s not fighting with her sister and out to kill Space God with a Capital G.
As for Ego, he’s an irredeemable jackass who deserved everything he got to him. End of discussion. I liked the build-up to the reveal, though.
Overall, for the characters, 10/5.
Next, my favourite scenes.
Can I not just say the whole movie? I mean, each scene is great in its own way. Action, drama, laughter, it’s just so perfectly executed. I enjoyed the credits, both opening and ending, they were just so fun. But I really enjoyed the Ravager Funeral scene. It’s just so beautiful, and heartbreaking, and UUUUGGGGHHHHH SO GOOOOOOOOOD.
The movie as a whole? (Ha, a-hole! :P)
James Gunn, you genius. You absolute sheer fucking genius. You’ve done it again. There are so many comic book and movie references, callbacks, continuity nods, it’s literally a perfect Marvel sequel. Stan Lee’s cameo was great, the 5 end credits scenes were great, Howard the Duck deserves a second chance at a movie, and I can’t wait for Volume 3.
I cannot recommend this movie enough. It’s so good the word good can’t describe it anymore. Go watch it!
PS: Show of hands, who cried at Mary Poppins’ death? Because I know I’m not the only one who did.
Can we talk about the fact that when Jemma comes to the door of the pod, Fitz sees her in his peripheral vision, goes to look at her, but then decides to turn away from her to cry? That moment is just so heartbreaking.
