I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in theaters last week and it’s taken a bit of time to process all of my thoughts. After all, I don’t blog about the MCU films as much lately, typically because I’m less than impressed (looking at you Iron Man 3 and Civil War), though perhaps I’ll get to those at a later time, after a re-watch (when there’s time).
