    Shit. That feeling didn't hit me til 2 years after my dad died. It's so wrong how trauma from a drawn out chronic illness just takes away all of the good memories. And that's on top of whatever baggage you had prior to this... thing invading every part of your life. But I have to say, I'd rather be here crying about how much I miss my dad and mom than not feeling anything.

    Over two years later, I still return to this video. This is my favorite video Lindsay has made. GotG Vol. 2 resonated with me in a way similar to how to how it did with Lindsay. Not a lot of my friends really understood (and still don’t, for that matter) why I prefer the sequel over the first film, but this video explains it better than I ever could.

    I liked this Guardians film so much more than the first. It seemed to have more...heart I guess & dealt with complex & often conflicted human emotions caused by dysfunctional/abusive/neglectful family dynamics. I recently saw a video essay by Wisecrack on Fathers in the MCU & how they/their roll might change in phase 2 & it was very interesting. Lots of bad or absentee fathers in the Comic Super Hero Mythos. In FairyTales it's always an "evil" stepmother. Kind of an interesting comparison I'd not noticed before.

    Also all the character development with Gamora and her sister and Peter---yeah that's all thrown out the window as of Infinity War. Just saying. They kept her character around but let's be honest here--she's a completely different 'character'. She's a completely different Gamora. She doesn't have the exact same memories or character growth because she hasn't hit the same story beats or been through what the old Gamora went through. I'm sure in Guardians 3 they're going to try to be like "oh she's the same character" or something and have her and Peter randomly hook up but like---no. She's a different person. Same actress, same name, same character---but her personality is going to be different because she's been through entirely different things. So Peter 'looking' for her and presumably finding her in Guardians 3---I don't care. You've effectively killed the character but didn't keep her dead. Now you're going to try to retcon it by having another Gamora. Please stop. They did the same shit in the CW's The Flash by doing the Flashpoint Au then trying to fix it and resulting in a different timeline which is very similar to normal show but slightly different in some ways, resulting in different characters or versions of the same characters. They tried to keep moving forward in this universe like "no it's totally the same character just this extra side stuff" and no. No it's not. They can't be because they have differences in their histories that affects them as people, affects their personalities. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME. What you've essentially done is murder all the characters we fell in love with and you've given of partially finished dopplegangers with partial memories. Just because they share the same actors/actresses and names and 'characters' doesn't mean they are the same. No. What makes a character is something fundamental in their worldviews, personalities, memories, how they reacted in certain events, how certain things changed them and made them grow as people---and now, effectively, Gamora is back to square one while the others have grown. The circumstances which forced her and the others together and made them grow to rely on each other and enjoy each other's company---that was unique to that situation. That's gone and past. Now the situation is essentially "Hey I knew another version of you and I want you back" versus "Wow I've been thrown into a unique world timeline where I'm very confused by everything and there's these annoying people hunting me down thinking I'm someone else when I dont' know who they are". And that's a plotline I don't care about.
    So it looks like I won't be finishing the Guardians trilogy. You've ruined whatever character growth there might have been. Yeah it was a nice twist for Infinity War---but you should have kept it that way. Kept her dead. The hole she made afterward would have prompted much greater character growth from those left behind, instead of prompting a search party looking for someone who doesn't exist anymore.
    This is why time travel is bad. Also, if Gamora doesn't return to her place in the timeline, timeline is fucked. Peter and the others never met her so why are they searching for someone they've effectively never met? Thanos died in the future so he's not there in the past to ensure the timeline. DON'T DO TIME TRAVEL IF YOU CAN'T KEEP TRACK OF THE TIMELINE LEADING UP TO IT. The whole thing was 'oh yeah you can have these stones as long as you put them back EXACTLY where they were left so the timeline stays in tact' but then whoops, Thanos from the past came to the present and yeah, he dead son, so he can't go back into the past and play his part in the timeline leading to the necessity of even going back for the stones and... WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO THE TIMELINE. It's fine if you don't think about it, but most people have a brain and are going to think about it, especially with regards to sequels like GUardians 3 xD This might have been fixed (the overall timeline, not the Gamora hunt) if they then went back in time to erase their past selves that went back in time in the first place, which would have stopped Thanos from getting wind of it and coming to the present. That ensures a version of themselves gets lost in the timeline but---I mean, hey. Barry can erase past-Barry from saving his mom in Flashpoint. It's a thing. Might bring up a slew of other issues, but that's what you signed on for with time travel. Parallel dimensions would have been better and easier to explain, honestly. Time travel ruins everything. At least with multiple dimensions you're stealing a version of someone from another world, another realm of existence, and the timeline remains intact.

    It's interesting how you mention that it really is personal what struck you about the movie. I cried during GOTG2 over Yondu as well, but GOTG1 struck me more personally. As a white, American male with a mother who's suffered from cancer twice now and whose name happens to be shared with the main character, the entire sub-plot about Quill's mother *killed* me. At the end, when the camera shows his mother's letter and it's addressed "To Peter", I couldn't help the tears.
    EDIT: Now I'm crying about Rocket not feeling he deserves to be loved and creating scenarios for his friends to reject him, but them choosing to forgive him anyway. A great video about a great movie.

    I lost my mother to multiple sclerosis almost 17 years ago. I STILL have days where I feel like I'm coming to terms with my mother's death. Like your father, I lost my mother to the disease before she died. As time passes, I relate to my mother now more than I could during her passing and that has given me some peace.

    Yondu was definitely the better of the not so fantastic parents evidenced by the fact that Peter isn’t afraid of Yondu. He doesn’t flinch or cower seeing Yondu because he knows Yondu cares about him to some degree compared to Thanos and Ego.
    Take it from someone with an abusive father, the biggest problem I have with my father is fear and I relate much more to Nebula than Peter

Your so interesting and fun to watch! Oh, the feels. Then today I watched this one and learned you also lost a father to Parkinson's disease. My father passed 1 year and 3 months ago. I love your POV and I know how hard that disease is to watch. Especially when it's your Dad suffering. I just wanted you to know how lovely and intelligent I find you and your videos bring me so much happiness! Keep it up!

    For me, GotG 2 falls just short of being one of the few movies I truly loved.
    A perfect example of this is the part towards the end when Fleetwood Mac's The Chain starts to play and Star lord says "You shouldn't have killed my mom and squished my walkman."
    It's that last part that irks me. Just leave it at 'You shouldn't have killed my mom." That line right there has all sorts of heavy emotions. Adding 'and squished my walkman" just ruins a powerful, emotional scene by trying to add a funny quip at the end.
    Don't get me wrong, I love a lot of the comedy in this movie but not when it's at the expense of a deeper, serious scene.
    I'd still rate GotG 2 a 4 out of 5. Great movie that could have been one of my favorites.

    Side tangent about a topic no one cares about.
    I get very defensive when “toxic masculinity “ pops up because the way a lot of feminists put it is that the core aspects of being a man are inherently bad. The core features we look for in a man are physical strength, stoicism, and the ability to put everyone else’s needs above his own. Those are core traits that have been REQUIRED through y’all of human history and to imply those are toxic is a disservice to men when the term “toxic traits” would work even better. The traits that are toxic appear in both sexes. Egotism, immaturity, selfishness, lack of social awareness are not core masculine traits. They’re human traits that everyone experiences in life.
    So that’s why I have a beef with the term. To imply that the single greatest force of humanity (men) are inherently toxic puts a bad spin on the millions of men who created civilization, who give their lives in service to us be it military or working in factories, and the millions of men who were told “women and children first” before dying.
    Men and masculinity aren’t toxic. People demonstrate toxic attributes because of poor upbringing and lifestyle and not because of inherent sex-specific defects.

    One of the biggest obstacles to addressing toxic masculinity is calling it "toxic masculinity". Seriously, was any good ever going to come from that? It's blatantly dehumanizing and frankly inaccurate. The behaviors associated with it can be addressed without reinforcing the cultural meme that men are intrinsically dangerous - in this case, literally calling them poison. Sure, you can pretend using that term only refers to behaviors and attitudes, and not men themselves, but it's a bit like complaining that Semites are people who speak one of the Semitic languages, so therefore "antisemitism" should mean blah blah blah. We know what that term means; we know what people hear when it's used, and pretending otherwise is willfully - sometimes maliciously - disingenuous.
    And while this is an emblematic complaint rather than a specific one, yes, a lot of the pushback on "toxic masculinity" is owed entirely to calling it that. I've never understood the eye-rolling, "oh grow up you big baby" attitude when men object to the term. Yes, there are bad-faith actors out there, who use this issue as a way of dismissing any need to find a new, positive, aspirational definition of manhood in today's society, but they're basing their bad-faith arguments on a legitimate complaint. That's what bad-faith actors do: twist a legitimate point to advance their self-serving agenda. But it doesn't retroactively negate the legitimacy of the original point.
    The stain of "toxic masculinity" has become so internalized by those men spearheading the effort to lift other men out of obsolete modes and behaviors, that many of them reach a point of internalized self-loathing, which is then projected onto the "wrong" men, leading to virtually no progress at all. As indicated above, in the eye-rolling response to pushback, this internalized shame and self-loathing is then hand-waved by a not-small portion of the critics as men's just dessert. "Oh, no; internalized shame and self-loathing! Welcome to our world, men!" As if equality is reached by dragging everyone down to the lowest common tier of suffering. Social change is not a zero-sum game, and playing it that way doesn't lead to a better world. It leads to the red-pilled "Men's Rights Movement" and black-pilled incels. Men are graduating from harming each other by reinforcing obsolete and self-destructive forms of masculinity, to harming each other by reinforcing the same shame and self-loathing by other means, be it denigrating men by calling them poison, or some other variation of offering them condemnation in place of an alternative.
    And *that* is the problem with the term "toxic masculinity".

    Honestly, I cry every time I hear you deliver this. I get it. All of it. Especially the part about folks who are changed by a disease process.

    My beloved cousin Larry got viral encephalitis, back when it was a guaranteed death sentence.

    He had been a kid who loved cars and model rockets and never got to be more than ten years old and a few days.

    He got sick in June. His last day out was July 4th, and he died right before Christmas (but also just a couple days after his birthday) the same year.

    I wish I could tell you we did okay after he left us. But it destroyed so much of my biological family that it nearly caused the death of several people and frankly lead to the early deaths of his mother and the shattering of any sort of holiday celebration by the remainder of the family.

    But eventually we got to the point where we could remember the little boy we had lost, and not the terrible disease that claimed him.

    There are a number of people I will never get over losing.

    He is one of them.

    My deepest and sincerest condolences on the loss of your father, and especially on the ways you lost him before he finally left.

    I saw this film first and didn't realize that it was a sequel till after the movie, all I could remember thinking was, wow Chris Pratt has some serious daddy issues, the last time that I saw Chris Pratt in anything was Everwood, A WB teen drama show where he played Bright Abbat a highschool football player with okay grades chasing down the hot girl. This show was on air for about 4 seasons. So I had a hard time seeing him as anything else but a grown up Bright. It felt like he was playing a older version of his highschool charter.

    I think an important thing that people are ignoring about Peter and Gamora is that he’s not just thinking they should be together because he wants her or because TV shows made him feel someone of his character would get the girl, the primary reason why Peter thinks they should be together is because she likes him back. They naturally draw towards each other and like each other and he’s tired of denying opening up to someone that clearly has a genuine chemistry with him. The TV sitcoms simplify things however and that’s Quills issue: if I like you and you like me, then why is there a problem? And that’s Peters immaturity issue I feel, not that he’s owed Gamora, but more if we wanna be together, surely its as simple as that?

    Unexpectedly hearing someone talk, even briefly, about their experience with a family member in the late stages of Parkinson’s hits very hard for me due to a loved one of mine contending with this disease now. Likening it to a “cold, unfeeling vacuum” is as accurate a description as I could ever give it.

    I was raised in an abusive household until I was seven. After that, my "father" was mostly absent until I was 17. When I was 17 my father and I got into a fist fight, and he got hurt. I ended up getting in trouble with the police. The last time I saw him was on the day of my sentencing, after losing my trial for aggrivated assault. My father wore a medical neck brace that day, even though he didn't need one.
    That was 20 years ago.
    I hated Guardians 2.
    I hate how it paints B.S. caricatures of abusive relationships. I hate how it paints a B.S. picture of parental abandonment. I really hated how it pretends to equate friend relationships and family relatonships.
    I used to say that my friends were my "family". None of them are around now. None.
    I used to believe that I would someday find some lasting male role model that I could hope to mirror as a proxy for my father. I never really found one.
    I used to believe that I could forgive him. I used to hope around my birthday or around Christmas that I would somehow get a call, or a letter, or something. Back then I would remember what it felt like to hug him when I was seven. I wanted to forgive him and get back the awe and admiration I had back when I was little. I just wanted a letter. I held on to that hope for years.
    Eventually, after about 15 years, that hope died and gave way to indifference.
    Three years ago, during the summertime and a few days before my birthday, I rejected a call from a number I did not recognize. Turns out, it was him. When I played the message he left, his voice was quiet, weak, sad.
    He wasn't calling to check in on me. He was calling to let me know that HIS father had died. It was almost a call for sympathy...
    Now, I had only met my grandfather one time, for a few hours when I was 13.
    The first thing that struck me was that I was being told that a man I had only met once was dead. I did not know the man, and thus I had no opinion of him. It was then that I realized about the hardships I had endured without having my father in my life. I have had to bury several friends over the years. I have had my heart broken by girls. I have been peniless, and I was even homeless for a short time in my early 20's.
    The man on the phone who left that message had not been around for any of it..
    I never called him back.
    and he never called me again.
    The Yandu trope in Guardians 2 makes me sick.
    I hate the whole movie and it's castrated, cartoon disney-friendly depiction of an absurdly positive dysfunctional family. I find Al Joleson in BLACKFACE to be less ignorant and offensive, if only because the ignorance of blackface is obvious, and the ignorance of guardians 2 is more subtle and cutting.
    I hate this film.

    I'm fairly new to your content Lindsay, and I have to say you are incredibly insightful and intelligent with how you compose your reviews, while being legit funny with most of your jokes. That being said, where you lose me is your intense social justice ranting. You roll your eyes at people's objection to the term toxic masculinity, but as many comments on this video have pointed out, the behavior is essentially just someone being an asshole. Women can engage in the exact same behaviors that stem from what is at it's core insecurity, but you wouldn't call it "toxic masculinity" or even "toxic femininity." It would just be someone being toxic. That is the disagreement with the term. You are obviously applying a gender to it for the purpose of attacking masculinity itself, rather than just critiquing the behavior. Its a shame because after watching your game of thrones videos I was prepared to tackle your entire library and subscribe, but such bias shows me that I will probably be rolling my eyes at you regularly. It really is a shame because so much of your insight about character, writing, and tropes are as crisp and on point as any channel I've ever watched, but if you must constantly retreat to speaking about how everything is "problematic" I'm going to have to pass.

    Thank you, there's too little forgiveness in the labels of our culture. An abuser is not a demon that cannot change or be redeemed. They're not someone who can never deserve love themselves.

    Yet there's so many terms in our culture that imply just that.
    It really goes back to people trying to see the world in black and white. It's easier, it's less confusing, and it brings in less pain.

    But that doesn't make it right.

    You can support a victim of abuse without encouraging them to view an abuser as a demon for the rest of eternity. They should *while* they are being abusive, and be wary of being tricked into coming back when they haven't changed, but even abusers should be seen as people. Even by their victims. It's easier to get them to see that person as evil but easier is not always better. More often the truth is, deep down they are good people caught up in bad thoughts, bad emotions, seeking bad outlets.
    People are generally kinda fucked up. Sometimes they learn to do better with their fucked upness. I think Guardians of the Galaxy does a really good job of exploring that fact of human nature.

    In most franchises the first movie- or two- are burned off for world building and aren't really very memorable for any other reason than introducing the characters and basic set-up. Harry Potter struggles through two objectively poor films before getting us to GAS. The first GOTG film was very lightweight, but it had a lot of infrastructure to set up. It's got a bad ending. By the time the second film came along, Gunn really was on his best game. This is a great movie and it needed the fuel of GOTG 1 to get up to speed.
