    I don't like it as much as I did when I first saw it but it's still a very good movie. It does what it's trying to do very very well. I really felt it dragging this time but most of these scenes work better drawn out.

    Fucking insane in the best way. This is one of my favourite superhero movies i've seen in a long time. Feels genuinely fresh.
    James Gunn really did something with this. I was laughing consistently throughout but there were also times throughout the movie that i found myself getting surprisingly emotional. Occasionally almost to the point of tears. It just felt beautiful. And that is in a big way due to the truly brilliant performances. These are well written characters in…
