“He said, ‘Welcome to the frickin’ Guardians of the Galaxy.’ Only he didn’t say ‘frickin’.’”

”I’m Mary Poppins, y’all!”

”I am Groot.”

The great superhero movie rewatch does Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

An excerpt:

But as with the first film, the real stars are Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, and especially Karen Gillan. Nebula’s anguish and pain is etched on every blue pore of Gillan’s face, as she perfectly embodies the victim of abuse that she and Gamora both are after being raised by the mad Titan. And Cooper and Diesel continue to be a delight, with Diesel making every (now high-pitched) “I am Groot” meaningful, while Cooper makes Rocket the most complex character—and, yet, still the funniest. He gets all the best lines—in a movie full of great ones—and also has the most pathos and one of the strongest emotional journeys.
