Droids, ballads, battles – oh my! The most recent installment in the Guardians of the Galaxy saga continued on a strong note by utilizing all three of these components in varying degrees. As May 5 rolled around, diligent Marvel fans were granted an end to their steadfast anticipation: a new installment of the widely-adored comic book turned movie.

As usual, Guardians mastered the art of dry humor, compelling CGI and interactive storyline. In this edition of the movie, Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is tasked with returning valuable batteries before a civilization of golden-skinned royalty transform his ship into a puff of dust. Peter, who earned his reputation as a guardian of the galaxy in the last movie, receives support from the same motley crew of able-bodied aliens. The “unspoken thing” – as Gamora (played by Zoe Saldana) puts it – between Peter and herself continues to develop as spaceships and planets around them deteriorate. While Peter and Gamora are starry-eyed and fighting feelings, they’re simultaneously fighting off a horde of scavengers with the help of Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Drax (Dave Bautista) and – the cult favorite – Baby Groot (Vin Diesel).

However, this edition presented a storyline which appeared somewhat mysterious in the last movie – the situation with Peter’s family.

As the guardians were, well, guarding the galaxy, they stumbled upon a certain member of Peter’s past which not only answered long-held questions, but brought about entirely new ones.
