    I need to rewatch this and John Wick 4 sober.
    I flip flopped on GOTG3 on if its the best or worst or at best tied with 2. I hated the music choices. None of it connected like the first 2 films soundtracks. Felt like one of the many copycat James Gunn wannabe movies where directors just throw in random pop music that has no connection to the scenes in any way. Everything except the intro with Radiohead felt random. If that was the directors point since its now a Zune with much more music and a shuffle option- I hate it even more because like the intro song, and end credits scene, the characters have preferences so why would they play random shuffle for big moments and missions throughout the film?
    Hated the whole mission to Orgo or whatever flesh station. That whole thing could have been cut.

    JW4 was hyped as the best, but I thought it was disappointing relative to how rewatchable and enjoyable 1,2,3 are. I loved all the Japanese stuff. Yen was cool but blind was over the top silly. Didn't care for Pennywise as the villain. Didn't care for James Harden and his dog. I'll check it out again sober before JW5.

    Explain why stormbreaker Thor is like literally the most powerful being in the history of the universe, but in the next movie he’s a little fat so now he’s basically Hawkeye level powers.

    If we're talking the MCU, Thanos was the most powerful. (duh)

    Thor was pretty powerful...Then he went all average American male; thinks he's god-level but in reality can't chase his dog 20 feet without dropping his chili dog.

    Bro, this brings me back. We’ve definitely had this discussion before and I remember you saying that.

    I mean, sure, kinda. But thanos got the ring power shield thing off way before that axe was even close, and stormbreaker just said **** off to those rings, so I don’t buy that explanation.

    I was pleased with the movie. I'd give it a 7.5/10. Not in your upper tier of Marvel movies, but better than the average.

    The main plot was good and interesting. Good to see Rocket's story. The humor and interactions between the Guardians was fun. The side plots to introduce the new Guardians really distracted from the main plot in that it felt too long and unfocused. I understand they have to do it, but it didn't mesh as well as it could have. I agree with Caesar that the soundtrack was pretty random and that it didn't fit the scene as well as the first two volumes utilized music.

    Power levels felt kinda all over the place. Warlock is dominating the Guardians in the beginning, but is pretty much incapacitated from explosions after that. High Evolutionary seems all powerful when he's disciplining his goons and Warlock, yet the Guardians take turns beating him up easily and Rocket goes feral on him in the backstory to knock him out. It's a comic book movie so not gonna analyze it too much.

    I don't think they'll ever figure out power creep with magic or cosmic marvel. I mean, the comics don't really either.
