Movie 5/1/2017

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (James Gunn, 2017). More of the same but with new characters skillfully blended in. Lives up to expectations, which is neither a terrible thing nor a really inspired thing. (full review 5/5)

The Big Sick (Michael Showalter, 2017). Yet another stand-up comedian gets a movie based on his act/life, and yet again the damn thing is smart and funny. There must be some end to this. Kumail Nanjiani is the comic this time. (full review 6/?)
