Well another May, another Marvel film out, and once again it’s another winner. You almost got to admire how far the MCU has really come along since 2008. Never in my lifetime did I ever expect that one of the best films to come out from them would involve a property that no one had heard of which involved a talking Raccoon and a walking tree who only says 3 words, but……here we are. The first Guardians of the Galaxy was already a pleasant surprise when it came out and honestly, I think Vol. 2 is even better. Bold statement but I really do think so.

Partly why this feels so much better is because each character gets more to do this time around. Star Lord gets the most development out of all of them considering he’s kind of the main character of the group, but all the other cast members get plenty of time to shine. Gamora and Nebula get way more to do this time and share a conflict with each other that not only gives more insight into their past but also into giving more development for Thanos (who by the way is not physically in the movie). Drax has a nice romance with a new character Mantis (and when I say nice I mean he’s just saying mean things to her, but it’s still funny). Even Yondu gets a lot more to do and has a nice connection with Rocket. Baby Groot is also adorable and they use him just the right amount so people won’t get sick of him. The banter between all of them is just as hilarious as the last film and there were several moments where I was laughing hard at some of the jokes. But they balance out the humorous moments with some genuinely heartfelt moments as well. 

Another thing that makes this better than the original for me is the villain. As much as I love the first one, the villain was kind of weak (though that can be a complaint about most of the Marvel movies). The main villain in this feels more threatening and there actually feels like some actual motivation to their actions apart from ‘I want to destroy everything just because.’ Even the Sovereign race, who I thought were gonna be just stern figures with no humor in their bodies actually had some humorous moments in this. Maybe Marvel has broken their weak villain stigma.

And of course the obvious things you would want to be good in this are very good. The action is exciting and fun to watch, the interactions like I said are hilarious, the acting is good all around, not just from the returning characters but from the new additions including Kurt Russell and Pom Klementieff, and by the end you will want to go out and buy yourself a Baby Groot toy (I know I wanted one).

So overall, this was yet another hit for Marvel and is a case of a sequel being better than the original (at least for me). I would tell you to go and see it, but I’m sure at this point you’ve already made up your mind. But in case you haven’t, I would highly recommend it. 

Baby Groot + Groot style review.
You know you all want one right now

And now, a review in Groot-ese (for the English version, I have a journal entry titled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 review)

I Am Groot. I Am Groot........I Am Groot. I Am Groot. I Am Groot.

I Am Groot. I Am Groot. I Am Groot (I Am Groot). I Am Groot (I Am Groot). I Am Groot. I Am Groot. I Am Groot. I Am Groot.

I Am Groot. I Am Groot (I Am Groot). I Am Groot. I Am Groot. I Am Groot.

I Am Groot. I Am Groot

I Am Groot. I Am Groot. I Am Groot.

So yeah I loved it.

The Lion King
It was only a matter of time before they announced this was getting remade. Hopefully it will be more on "The Jungle Book" side of remakes and less "Beauty and the Beast."

John Wick
Never mess with a man who can kill three men with a pencil.

Also if you haven't seen the John Wick movies yet, you should.

Power Rangers (2017)
I admit I was more of a casual fan of Power Rangers as a kid. I watched it, I liked it, I'd tune in on occasions, but I wasn't overly obsessed with it like I was with, say, Pokémon. If I do have some extensive knowledge of other series, it's mostly because I've seen the web series "History of Power Rangers" (I'll put a link at the end). When I saw the trailers for the new movie reboot, I was admittedly skeptical and was kind of worried it was gonna be TOO serious but I was still curious. After seeing it, I have to say.....I really liked this movie. This was a lot of fun and a total blast.

Yes the movie does have a more serious tone than other Power Rangers series but it does manage to balance out that tone with some lighthearted charm, and it did not feel jarring. The characters were also really well done. All 5 Rangers felt distinct, they were all likable and they actually felt like teenagers with attitude more than the original mighty morphin rangers. It helps that the actors playing them all do a great job. They share really good chemistry and have some cool banter with each other. My personal favorite of them was RJ Cyler as Billy. As for other characters, Bryan Cranston makes for a pretty good Zordon, Bill Hader got some laughs out of me as Alpha 5 (and is actually far less annoying than the original Alpha 5), and Elizabeth Banks was a joy to watch as Rita Repulsa. The action scenes were also fun. When things start going down and the rangers have to fight the Putties get the Zords and fight Goldar, I was really into it. The climax really plays out like a big budgeted version of the show.

However there are some issues. For one, the Krispy Kreme product placement is just ridiculous. Sometimes product placement can be done well and can be subtle. But here, a major plot point in this movie hinges on a Krispy Kreme. Plus I'm pretty sure they say the words 'Krispy Kreme' more than they say the words 'Power Rangers.' Another issue that may bother some but didn't bother me too much is that the actual 'Power Rangers' stuff with the characters morphing and fighting Putties and so forth doesn't really happen until the last 20 minutes. Up to that point, its mostly just build up and them training to become Power Rangers. I can see how that would be really disappointing to people and while part of me wished they had morphed sooner part of me was also okay with it since I was so invested in these teenagers and what they were going through that I almost didn't care.

One more disappointing thing, no Bulk and Skull. Shame...

Final thoughts, I actually thought this movie was pretty good. The characters were great, the action is cool and this does manage to balance out the darker moments with the lighter moments better than I thought it would. Also, plus 10,000 points for taking a shot at Transformers. If you're a hardcore Power Rangers fan, or even just a casual one like me, you'll definitely enjoy it. There are certainly some nods and Easter eggs that fans will certainly notice, some clear ones and some where you'd have to know more about the other Power Rangers series to catch. But even if you're not a Power Rangers fan you may still find things in this movie to latch on to. I'd even go as far as to say I enjoyed this movie more than the Beauty and the Beast remake or Kong Skull Island (I apologize for nothing). So yes, I recommend seeing it.

Oh and there is a mid credits scene, so make sure you stick around for that.
