Elizabeth Debicki as the gold alien lady was my favourite part of the movie. I found her very compelling.

She's awesome in The Night Manager.

Before I only kind of liked GOTG2. Now I fucking hate it! That damn Snyder. I mean Gunn.

She reminded me of Paris Hilton.

I liked Drax's character better in Vol. 2. Yeah, his laughing at everything seemed a bit excessive at times but, IMO, it still works better than his "literal" personality in Vol. 1 that I felt got tiresome after awhile.

And speaking of improving on the characters in part 2, I've got to say Groot annoyed the shit out of me in part 1 and was a damn delight as Baby Groot in part 2! Baby Groot had so much more personality than dumb-as-a-rock grown Groot.

Same with Yondu. Who would have thought his somewhat dickish character in Vol. 1 could have turned into such a sympathetic character in part 2 (I know nothing of his arc in the comics). And while it's a shame he died, I can't think of another comic book movie that had such a meaningful send-off to a departed character as Yondu's.

Just like in humans. Being dumb is cute as long as you're small. Once your a full grown adult. Dumb isn't cute anymore. Unless you're girl. Then its adorable until you're like 40.

gotta say...surprisingly more fun the second time around. It was ok in the theater, but watching now everything clicking (except that horrible father/son energy ball catch). Really enjoying. The 3D is excellent. The depth is really good. Yondu and Rocket's breakout scene on the ship was especially great in 3D. I will say I liked vol. 1's soundtrack better, but it's all good.

That Yondu death scene and memorial was pretty damn good.
