This post originally appeared on A Night Owl Blog. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out on Digital Aug 8th, Blu-ray Aug 22nd! From comedy to cinematography, check out our top 10 Reasons to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!
1. COMEDY. I love a movie that makes me laugh. Don’t you? And this one certainly fits the bill. In fact, I can’t remember being in a movie theater when a crowd has laughed MORE during the movie than I did last night. Just be warned – hold on to that popcorn, there are moments that you’ll get a good hearty belly laugh from this film.
2. SOUNDTRACK. Something that the first Guardians of the Galaxy was known for was the soundtrack, and this film was no exception. From Sam Cooke to to Cat Stevens, you’ll be reminded of summers of your youth. Ok, maybe not your kiddos – so maybe the soundtrack is just for us. And I’m ok with that. And if you want to jam out to some oldies before the movie, you can stream the soundtrack here!
9. THROWBACKS. I won’t spoil anything for you but keep your eyes peeled for some FUN cameos and throwbacks in the film! There were noticeable times that the audience gasped, laughed and clapped – you’ll have to let me know if you notice them too! Again – this one is probably just for the adults.
10. FOMO. Yes, I said fear of missing out. I was so excited about a sneak preview of the movie before its release that I about drove my husband nuts trying to talk about it but NOT give away anything. You don’t want to miss out. Don’t let others ruin it for you!
So there you have it: my TOP 10 Reasons to See Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Now for some additional notes since I’m sure you’re wondering.
Is is ok for children? Now my boys have seen the first film, and because I’ve seen so many movies with them, I have a good grip on what they’re comfortable with. First, there is certainly violence in the movie and you will witness people being killed. Quite a few, actually. So if your kiddos are sensitive to that, please be aware. Second, there is some adult humor. My boys may just be on the cusp of understanding some of it, so I’m sure they’ll gloss over it. But it’s there, I’ve given you fair warning. Third, there is some language. Overall, I didn’t find it to be overwhelming or any more than some movies we’ve seen in the past so I don’t think it’s a non starter but something you’ll likely notice.
So if you haven’t seen it yet, what are you waiting for?!
