Saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 yesterday and other news

Honestly - I wasn't that impressed.

I don't want to give away any spoilers, but lets say that they went way to heavy on the comedy at the expense of the story.  Part of the reason the first movie was so good was the comedic interaction felt natural.  Like people really bantering.  This felt forced.  They also went  way too Three Stooges and way too cartoonish both.

Second the Kurt Russell character sucked ass, from the very poor CGI at the beginning, which was very creepy looking (uncanny valley), to the character himself, who didn't really serve a purpose other than to explain why quill held an infinity stone.  That didn't really need an explanation and could have served as a thread in upcoming movies, at least in my opinion.

Baby Groot, believe me a little bit went a very long way.

Unexplained technical stuff that causes problems etc.

The list goes on.

TLDR:  Bad story, bad effects, bad characters - worst movie from Marvel in a long time.

The other news --

Got the new computer, Alienware R6 Aurora.  Spent most of yesterday transferring files, getting stuff set up again.  having a few glitches, nothing hardware related so far.  Went with the water cooled option and OMG I never really realized how loud my old system was.  32 GB of RAM for VM labs. now of course i have cables everywhere but I will get that cleaned up.
