If you’ve have not been impatiently waiting for the day that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is released on Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital, then I’m not sure what your purpose is in life. Even if your anticipation is due solely to the adorable face of Baby Groot himself.
Marvel comics and films are something on which that my whole family can connect and with a 17-year-old and a 7-year-old, that doesn’t happen very often. The Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is especially applicable because of the humor, the endearing and relatable characters, the MUSIC and, to be honest, Baby Groot. Even the Gag Reels from the films are worth watching on repeat.
Marvel does an amazing job when it comes to exploring new genres and the very definition of a superhero. If you were intimidated about going to see the film in theaters because all of your friends had seen the first one and you hadn’t, now you can enjoy all the laughs and the feels from the comfort of your own home. AND, you won’t even have had to see the first GotG to enjoy Vol. 2!
