snickfic: Gamora profile (mcu)
[personal profile] snickfic
I just got back from watching it the second time. You guys, I liked it the first time, but I LOVED it the second time. It’s so dense with character moments but also silly moments but also this goshwow cosmic stuff that is MY JAM. GotG1 and Winter Soldier used to be tied for my favorite MCU movie, but I think GotG2 just moved into first place.

Some things I particularly loved this time:

* “I don’t know why they’re after us. What a mystery this is.”
* QUANTUM ASTEROID FIELD lololol this movie is totally bonkers
* That half the opening action scene was just Groot dancing while stuff happens in the background.
* “If he ends up being evil, we’ll just kill him” - Gamora, the emotional support we need and deserve
* The whole conversation about why Groot doesn’t like hats. I about died both times.
* “Well, of course not.” ;____________;

And also, on second watch I think I fell in love with Peter? He irritated me sometimes in the first movie and entertained me in others, and I ended up feeling sort of neutral about him, but I really love him in this movie. He never really gets invested in the story Ego tells him. He cares way more about the idea of a dad than about this phenomenal cosmic power stuff Ego tries to sell him on, and he doesn’t ever seem really tempted by it. “And what’s wrong with that,” he says - not like someone who’s learned a valuable lesson, but someone who never really doubted in the first place.

Canon notes:

Peter first piloted the Milano when he was 10.
They use inches to measure things!
They say “Oh my god” and “Hell” (”Hel”?)
Drax and his sensitive nipples lol
So what’s the deal with Mantis’s outfit, anyway?

*beams while doing a quick retrospective eye-of-the-mind rewatch* Thanks for that :)

I yayed the moment Peter began shooting at Ego, it hit the exact same note as an scene from Angel that's one of my favorite TV scenes of all time (with the caveat of that being a late 2006 list).

It was the second movie that made me fall in love with Peter. I didn't really like him in the first movie. And now I love him in both ... but yeah, I needed a couple viewings of the second movie to really click with him. And then once I did, I clicked hard. He's just so sweet. I love that so much of his motivation revolves around loving people (he's the most Hufflepuff of action protagonists, really). And I love that he's not the most badass person on the team, and he knows it. He never, ever wins boss fights by himself; the only reason he survived either movie is because he ended up charming the people who originally intended to kill and/or sell him enough that they were willing to throw themselves into the fight to save him. He's a guy who whose first impulse, when offered Ultimate Power, was to think "Wow, I could make an 800-foot statue of Skeletor!" I just ♥ Peter a lot.

This movie did some fantastic things with bright lights in the dark, and it made me glad to watch it - just to look at. And yes to Peter being a good person underneath all the bullshitting exterior, for knowing it's enough to be an ordinary human, and also for shooting the physical embodiment of cancer in the face.

(This seems to be the most appropriate icon I've got in rotation.)
