  5. One thing I love about the Guardians of the Galaxy movies over many other blockbusters nowadays is that they feel like they were led by a creator rather than a committee. You can feel James Gunn's touch and his love for the characters and universe, even if he's not the perfect filmmaker at all.

      It boggles my fucking mind that we're supposed to take this as a compliment rather than the natural order of things. Movies and games are drowning so much in executive meddling that people are legitimately starting to forget how much better things are when designers are simply left alone to do their fucking jobs and executives are simply marketing it like they should've been in the first place.

  6. I'm starting to feel like I enjoyed Guardians Vol. 2 more than the first.

    Besides a lethargic climax, it did practically everything a sequel should have

    1. Boomer

      Boomer

      Well you saw the first film with better company at least...

    2. Josh

      The character work in their second one was good enough to put it over the first. Every character was quirky, likable and had a purpose

    3. Nepenthe

      The only things I did not like over Guardians 2 was Rocket's new model (looked less real than the original), and the soundtrack.

      Soundtrack was FUCKING WEAK.

      Otherwise, I consider it the better film.

    4. Jango

      are you saying you don't like Mr. Blue Sky, mister? Because if so, you're not my friend anymore.

    5. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      Mr. Blue Sky was a far weaker opening song than Come and Get Your Love. Sorry.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      @Nepenthe

       

      I vehemently disagree on the soundtrack being weak. It's not imminently recognizable as Awesome Mix Vol. 1 l, but there's some great, great songs there. Lake Shore Drive, Brandy You're a Fine Girl, Mr. Blue Sky.. Father and Son and The Chain respectively both played in some of the best scenes in the film as well.

    7. Boomer

      Personally I preferred the first as the pacing felt better and the jokes landed more.

      Quote

      The Pac-Man bit in 2 felt really out of place, Drax was pretty unlikable this time and I really did not like Baby Groot at all. The fetching the fin and bomb tape jokes went on for too long imo.

       

      Well that was meant to be a spoiler, damn it being 2am...

    8. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      It not being imminently recognizable is kind of the point. Aside from Mr. Blue Sky, it was all a blurry mush of 70s rock.

      Seriously, no Jackson 5/Michael anywhere?

      C'mon son.

    9. Josh

      Josh

      There opening overall is much better and not a tonal atrocity like they original but I agree on the songs. 

    10. big think

      big think

      Fair point there.

      Though if there's one thing we can agree with on common ground it's that these movies rock. Bless James Gunn.

      The deus ex-machina moment killed the whole movie for me, but I saw it coming a mile way. The ending was good and emotional, I got close to tears (Kat Steven's god).

      But IDK, the first one was so much better to me. The story was also better writen.

    12. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      Wat? Guardians' 1 opening was great.

    13. big think

      big think

      The opening to Guardians 1 is my favorite to any MCU movie bar none

    14. Josh

      THe dancing in a cave is great, but going from a woman dying from cancer TO that has bugged me every time I watched it.

      Maybe that was the point tho, I dunno.

    15. Jango

      Jango

      I for one knew all the tracks in the movie (save for Come a Little Closer) :V

      I love me some old rock and pop. Let's just agree that eiter way, James Gunn has good music taste.

    16. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      The point of his mom dying is to set-up the emotional value of the tape player to Star-Lord, the same tape player he uses to kick off the song of said dancing scene.

      THE JETPACK HURTS MY NIPPLES

    18. Josh

      Josh

      I feel like there were more subtle ways to get that across tho. Especially since the way his mom died comes up a few times. 

      It just...feels at odds with the tone the way they did it, but I feel that way about more than a few moments in this series. 

  7. Has anyone here seen Dead Leaves

      I have. I still don't know if I'll ever be back to normal

    2. big think

      I had the same reaction

      Hiroyuki Imaishi is fucking god

    3. Shaddy the Zaphod

      Shaddy the Zaphod

      Personally Dead Leaves wasn't my favorite of his, a bit edgy for me, but I like TTGL and Kill la Kill

    4. big think

      big think

      OH MY GOD ANOTHER IMAISHI FAN

      Yeah Dead Leaves is practically him at his most unhinged. Makes it all the more shocking it was his directorial debut. It's more in line with Panty and Stocking along with Sex and Violence with Machspeed.

    5. Jango

      Jango

      Never, what is it? ANIMO?

  8. What's something you've watched where the sound effects/design have stuck out to you?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Cliche, but Dragon Ball. A lot of the sound effects/design really add onto the fighting in it. Especially in stuff like Resurrection F where the vocal themes switch out during the fight and mix with the effects.

    2. Josh

      Josh

      Action films like the Raid that nail sound design so every punch, kick, stabbing  or gun shot feels really impactful always stick with me.

    3. big think

      big think

      Pretty much any Star Wars movie, Kill la Kill, Jurassic Park and Akira are good examples for me.

      That T-Rex roar never fails to give me chills every single time.
