Michael in "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" [May. 6th, 2017|08:50 pm]
I enjoyed the first GOTG and I liked this one even more (and not just because Michael's in it!)

- it's easy to see that James Gunn wielded more power on the sequel, with expanded roles for bestie Michael Rooker and his brother Sean. Fortunately both these guys are terrific.

- The second tier villains, the Sovereigns, were my favourite non-Michael part. The Sovereigns are haughty gold people who seem to have fallen out of a Ralph Lauren photoshoot. They are hilarious and Elizabeth Debicki as the lead Sovereign steals all her scenes.

- Karen Gillan gets more screen time and some character development as Nebula. She is fantastic.

Favourite exchange:
Quill: "You sound like an old woman!"
Drax: "Because I'm wise?"

Michael is in three brief scenes. His character is "Martinex" and he's a lieutenant to Stallone's Stavkar. The pic below is an approximation of how he looks - onscreen his crystals are brighter (and seemed pinker.) One of his scenes is a teaser during the end credits which seems to hint that his character could return for GOTG3. And since GOTG2 is currently raking it in worldwide at the box office, for the third installment, Gunn should wield even more friends-casting power!

Can you really tell it's him or does the crystals really mask it?
I could tell because Martinex still moves like Michael. (Years of obsessively watching him paying off!) Had not heard of Martinex prior to the film but he has some cool powers. From his wiki:
His epidermis is composed of a silicon-isotope organic crystal. Martinex has the ability to convert bodily energy into laser-like beams of energy which he can project from his hands. His right hand can project infrared energy, stimulating heat in any object. His left hand can project microwave energy that reduces thermal energies in objects, thereby producing coldness.

(So he can heat up a burrito for you as well!)
