2BWatched: “Guardians of the Galaxy” (2014) and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” (2017)

You may have already guessed it, but… Yep! I’m guilty –> I need to watch the first Guardians of the Galaxy before I go to watch the sequel. And thankfully, I haven’t been spoiled anything.

When Guardians of the Galaxy first came out, I guess I was one of those that snobbed the movie – yes, yes, I know, I was one of those people. A lot of my friends who had gone to watch the movie came out saying “it was really good” and “you should try it”. But, being the stubborn critic I am, I kept on saying “no”.

Looking back, I really should have saved myself the effort and the pride, and should have just gone and watched the movie with my friends. But, this is the price I get for being pigheaded.

What did you guys think of the first movie? What did you think of the second one?

2BWatched: “Power Rangers” (2017)

Pokemon, Power Puff Girls, Digimon, Dexter’s Laboratory, Totally Spies, Scooby Doo, Looney Tunes, Spongebob Squarepants… I could go on and on about all the series I used to watch as a child. My parents used to advice me to ‘unstick’ myself from the TV because my eyes were starting to turn ‘square’.

Almost all of the cartoons and anime I watched as a child have their own movies – animation or/and live action versions – and some of them are making a comeback to bring closure (I’m looking at you, Samurai Jack) or agitate our nostalgia. One of those is Power Rangers. I always enjoyed the story behind it and the characters as well. Growing up though I got tired of the bad guys.

For that reason, this is one of the series that I found intriguing and exaggerated at the same time. Do I dare say that it was as if watching a car crash? No? Maybe?… Anyone?

I’m still looking forward to it. It looks like something I would go to the cinema and watch, even without having known the series to begin with.
