Now that the second season of Agents of SHIELD is up on Netflix, I've decided to pick up this project where I left off, with my third viewing of Guardians of the Galaxy.

This is not a particular favorite of mine -- it's a fun ride, easily the most humorous of the MCU films, and I enjoyed it while I was watching. Chris Pratt is always charming, and like everyone I fell totally in love with Groot, but the film's frat-boy attitude gets wearying, fast. Basically, I stand by everything that I said the first time, except that Ronin has grown on me as an antagonist. In particular, I would no longer say that Ronin was a worse antagonist than Maeferoth: he might be a bit annoying and over the top, but he has a much stronger personality, and I got a better feel for his motives the third time around. I still wish we had gotten more on Nebula and the Collector, and I hope we see them both in later movies.

Really, I was watching this movie in hopes of seeing stronger connections with the Kree mythology that made a brief appearance in AoS season 1 and became more important in Season 2, and although not much caught my attention, it'll be good to have it fresh in my mind for what comes next.
