It's more of the same.


Like I said, worthy successor. What did you expect from a Marvel movie?

Mostly because the first one is a good movie. And it's a good movie because it was fresh, something different, new. If this one somehow managed to keep the freshness of the first, it would be a worthy successor, but it's not.

I'm not too much about that "freshness" you speak about. There is only an impression of freshness compared to other Marvel movies because of obscure and brand new characters or setting. Otherwise, all Marvel movies are still popcorn movies with clichés characters and relationships, somewhat retarded plots, numerous immature gags, and in GotG's case, 80's music. The second GotG having more emphasis on the relationships between the characters and the gags because that's what the audience liked the most. And that's good.

Tbh, GotG 1&2 are mediocre movies objectively speaking. Their redeeming quality is that unlike other Marvel movies, these ones don't take themselves as seriously so it's passable. Idk how you could laugh at what was in GotG 1 and only find a couple of GotG 2's gag funny. It's the same genre, and level of gags.

Watched GotG 2. Lacking plot and a bit too many jokes for me but entertaining.

GotG2 has a giant hole of nothing happening in the middle of the movie.

Spider-Man Homecoming is pretty good, however. The Vulture is one of the best villains of all MCU.

Yeah, Spider-Man Homecoming was fine, better than the Amazing ones.
