I enjoyed this one quite a bit. Not as much as the first one, but still really good. It's more of a character piece than an action-adventure (though there is plenty of action and adventure) about he various familial relationships among the Guardians and their associated friends. I particularly enjoyed the Gamora / Nebula dynamic, as well as the Peter Quill / Ego relationship which sort of drives the sort of plot.

Michael Rooker was fantastic as Yandu.

The soundtrack was good, but not as memorable as the first one, which was weird to me -- the songs were mostly late 70s / early 80s, which was when I was a kid so I'm surprised I didn't recognize very many of them.

CGI Young!Kurt Russell was jarring, but they covered up most of the flaws with his ginormouse hair. And it only lasted for one scene, so it wasn't as creepy as Grand Moff Tarkin.

No Infinity Stone (well...see below)

Five, yes FIVE mid credit scenes, of which I can only remember a couple:

1. Ayesha, high priestess of the Sovereign, looking at an iconic cocoon-pod-thingy holding a weapon she wants to use against the Guardians. "I think I'll call him Adam". It's Adam Warlock, who in the comics occasionally uses the Soul Gem, so we didn't completely escape the MacGuffins of the MCU. Presumably he'll show up in the next Avengers movie.

2. Peter yelling at emo-teen Groot who is sitting in his very messy room playing a video game. That was hysterical; Groot even had the branches on his head vaguely shaped like a Goth-kid haircut.

3. Stan Lee boring a bunch of Watchers

We are really looking forward to seeing this. We've just been too busy.
