Unfortunately the Guardians films don't hold up, especially on repeat viewings. Really the only good things going for them are the soundtracks.On one hand, Guardians of the Galaxy was approximately as obscure as Eternals before becoming one of Marvel's most valuable properties. On the other hand this looks like Diversity the movie, a plague of this entire phase.
Edit: and on the shit on my heel I hate Kumail Nanjiani.
The hatred she got for so much as breathing was completely unnecessary and uncalled for, especially when war criminal and botched abortion faced Adam Driver was in the cast. But more importantly it sucks that she was promised a bigger role in the final film, only for them to completely fuck that up in the finished product. The biggest issue for me is that she did not contribute anything important. She's just there because Asian minority. They could have had her be related to the two gay Asian mercenaries from Rogue One...but nah let's focus on the two Mary Sue's instead.It doesn't usually go better for Marv/sney (or is it Disn/arvel?) when they actually cast Asian actors though. China hated the Asian chick in the newish Star Wars movies, even though she was almost certainly put in there just for them. I've heard multiple theories as to why they hated her so much from, "she was the wrong kind of Asian" to "she was just ugly."

I can't speak to her being the "right, or even wrong kind of Asian" but my money is just her just being too ugly for them.
