After the smash success of the first film, the Guardians of the Galaxy return to once again save the universe from potential destruction. The film doubles down on all of the beloved elements of the first film, while expanding side characters' roles, and introducing new characters to the fold. While the film lacks a bit from a story perspective, the film is ultimately an enjoyable, fun, and funny addition to the MCU.
A last minute invite resulted in seeing the new Romantic Sci-fi film Passengers. With two charismatic leads in Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, comes a film that fails to maintain the quality it starts off with.
