    On Wed. evening, I saw Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. I did see the first Guardians movie which was better than I anticipated. The choices at the movie cinema where I was were less than stellar so I wound up choosing Guardians, Vol. 2. I liked it better than the first Guardians movie and really enjoyed it.

    Vol 2. was positively psychedelic! I like it a lot, but it could have benefited from a couple more scenes like the opening, where the apocalyptic battle takes place in the background. The two scenes in which that occurs sums up the subversiveness of the GotG franchise. It's also a pretty scathing critique on the more bloated entries in the MCU. Beautiful CGI that never seems gratuitous.

    The first great film of 2017 that I've seen, though, is not form the US. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is 3-hour Indian fantasy/action adventure film that blows away anything Hollywood has done in the last decade. You can see how Jackson's LOTR series inspired it, but it never copies those films. Everything about the film is first class: writing, acting, directing, cinematography, score, action set pieces, etc. I was concerned about not having seen the first film (Baalhubali: The Beginning), but some expertly paced and placed flashbacks took care of that. I had to travel 25 miles to see it and the ticket price was near outrageous, but it was soooooo worth it. Highly recommended if subtitled films don't bother you.

    Speaking of Indian films, I watched Drishyam over the weekend on Netflix. It's a long, but enjoyable movie, about a family that gets involved in a criminal investigation. The less said, the better. I thought it was very well done.
