#GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2 was RIPE - unlike Nebula's fruit. (That was "metaphorical") From Pac-Man to trash-pandas, this cosmic adventure was set to the best beats, whilst hitting all the beats of the first film - including stolen eyes, pelvic sorcery, Drax lathered in yellow goop, Nebula's mechanical shifting, Rocket and Groot firing off guns in a twirl from the vantage-point of a shoulder, freezing in embrace in outer-space, Drax spying Baby Groot dancing, A’askavarians, Yondu's sapphire frog, and the most powerful message of all: "We are all Groot." In the face of meeting God - though "with a small g" - and glimpsing Eternity, it sure is good to know that we have #StanLee "watching" over us and that even the highest of beings play Galaga with their war-ships. We got to see other universes through the jump-gates, got visitors from the #Cancerverse in the form of an Abilisk, got to call ourselves "Mary Poppins, y'all", and even learnt that "you're out of luck 'til you go duck". Though a sequel, we got to see the beginning of ALL things alongside some other origins - as we met the OG Guardians when Ravager Captains #Starhawk, #AletaOgord, #Martinex, #Charlie27, #Mainframe and extra-terrestrial Sorceror Supreme #Krugarr banned together to "Steal some shit!" To crown it all we got to hear the infamous declaration of final beginnings and new endings: "I think I shall call him Adam"... and after all that you'd think Teenage Groot could at least clean up his room.
