MCU Rewatch – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 feels like the most unnecessary MCU movie

This movie might be the one in this entire franchise that the largest gulf between my expectation of it, and what I ended up feeling about it when I finally saw it. I adored the first Guardians of the Galaxy, just read my post about it when I saw it again last year. It’s still one of my favourite movies in the entire franchise. Which is why the sequel was such a let down for me when we eventually got it.

I still endeavour to go back and see the things I’ve missed out on, but there is only so much time and Dunkirk is, what, like a 70 hour movie? It feels like that anyway.
