Genre: Superhero action
Duration: 2h 29m
Director: James Gunn
Form: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista

The third and final installment of James Gunn’s MCU trilogy is one of the better received superhero movies of the year and is finally available to watch at home.

From our review:

This is a movie that features a planet-sized laboratory made of flesh and held together by bones, where data is stored in capsules covered in pus, and a private security force led by Nathan Fillion wearing hideous Power Rangers-esque body armor that looks like hard muscles. It’s a movie where a Russian cosmonaut golden retriever has telekinesis and a family of humanoid vampire bats serve the heroes blue soda in an otherwise picturesque Norman Rockwell-ass house. In other words, it’s a movie full of genuine imagination, with real and strange sets and costumes and make-up, with crude visual humor and more than a little horror.

The blackening

Genre: Horror comedy
Duration: 1h 36m
Director: Tim Story
Form: Grace Byers, Jermaine Fowler, Melvin Gregg

Forced to play a dangerous board game where “proving” their blackness is the key to survival, the friends must use all their wits to overcome their captor and make their way safely to freedom. To remind Scary movie 2? Yes, it’s like that a lot.
