Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (2017)Directed by James Gunn (@jamesgunn)The fifteenth entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was released on Friday in theatres here and I watched it yesterday. The movie picks up a few months after the first film and finds the Guardians on the run from the Sovereign (a race of gold skinned beings). They are rescued by a man who claims to be Star-Lord / Peter Quill's (Chris Pratt) father, and he takes them to his planet. Meanwhile, old friends and enemies are also after the Guardians and they must save the Galaxy again. It's difficult to discuss further details about the plot without giving away spoilers.Like the first movie, this is one of the more quirky MCU movies, a very personal kind of project for James Gunn. Unlike many of the other MCU movies, this one is rather self contained and doesn't really set up "Thor: Ragnarok" or even "Avengers: Infinity War", barring a few references to Thanos and events from the first movie. To me, this was slightly disappointing, as I expected more of Universe-building and a meatier plot. I also thought it took awhile to get to the main conflict. However, that being said, it's a very charming and fun movie, and had the audience laughing throughout. The characters were enjoyable to watch, and Baby Groot steals the show as you'd expect. The cinematography (they shot it in 8K, on the RED Weapon 8K system) and vibrant visuals were a treat, as was the music. There are some surprise cameos in the movie, and watch out for 5 mid/post credit sequences.I've drawn him before, but since he was such an adorable character in the movie, here's another sketch of Baby Groot. The next time we see Groot, in "Avengers: Infinity War", he will be full grown, since that movie will take place 4 years after the events of this one. The sketch was done with pencil and colour pencils, and scanned. It's based on an image that @vindiesel posted on Instagram. "In these times of hardship, just remember, We are Groot!" #255 / 7-May-17
