I saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and I loved it.
The trippy Marvel fun continues with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, a big, nutty, spiraling sequel that brings the fun, along with a lot of daddy issues. Guardians of The Galaxy gave us some good music, but not quite as many great tunes as the first film.
That said, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" fails to match the original's huge scale.

Goode's perfectly weighted grubber was pounced upon by the 30-year-old, who ran in to bring up a landmark score. Saracens marched down the other end and Farrell scored a penalty to seal the victory.
Holmes, Stanley share one-stroke lead
Fiji's three-time major victor Vijay Singh rolled back the years to card a 68 and that performance moved him up to fourth. He started the third round five shots out of the lead, poised to move into contention for the richest tournament in golf.
"I asked her if she wanted to do a little something in this movie and she was excited about it". As did its predecessor, Vol. 2 works as an ode to classic vinyl rock, as well as those album covers.

If you find yourself asking why Russell's role was so weird because you haven't seen the film yet, turn back now. It has a strong theme (family-fathers and sons) which ties directly into the plot, and, above all, compelling characters who are able to drive the story forward. It nearly functions as a hangout movie where you're entertained by just spending time with interesting characters as they banter with each other instead of following them into a complicated plot. Baby Groot is ridiculously adorable.
