The best films I have ever seen are the ones where I feel like I'm taken on a journey with the characters that I either love or learn to love throughout the duration of the film. Taking into account I already love each and every one of the Guardians from their perfect introduction back in 2014, GOTG Vol 2. already had a headstart. Every Guardian has a journey in this story and that is what makes it a great film. We laugh, sympathize, and fear for each character in this movie all while they take a journey to Ego, and subsequently escape while saving the galaxy once again. Movies like this are why I love comic book movies.
One last note: Yondu's funeral is legitimately one of the emotional scenes in any CBM to date and it perfectly ends this amazing film.
