I think my expectations were a little too high going into this after the first Guardians of the Galaxy film, which was perfect. Vol. 2 is still a fun follow-up; Baby Groot is adorable, and the full development of Michael Rooker’s Yondu is definitely a highlight. The concept of Ego is executed well, fun to watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 online and some of the visual effects were top-notch (notably the 700 jumps scene and the final battle with the villain where he reforms his bones and muscles).
I still can’t help but feel that the movie was trying a little too hard to be funny. In the first film, all the jokes seemed more unexpected and timed better, especially with Bautista’s character Drax, his jokes were just a little too over done. There was a line said by Star-lord at the end that sums up how I feel in this regard: “you shouldn’t have killed and squished my Walkman”; the impact of the statement is kind of ruined by the joke. I also felt like the murder spree by the ravagers was a little unnecessary and out of taste. The music choices were ok for this one, I just felt like the soundtrack of the first film was better. I still think it was a cool movie and that’s i free downloaded this movie from Filmxy, just that it could have ironed-out a few little things to get it to the level of the first film.
Snatched You're looking to trade real-life drama for 90 minutes of indulgent, fictional fun. Snatched is an all out, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants comedy starring Goldie Hawn and Amy Schumer as mother-daughter travelers who get kidnapped in South America. What we disliked: at times, it's insensitive to Ecuadorians. What we liked: it's ridiculous and raucous. Snatched is a plot of crazy antics that Schumer is best known for, and Schumer herself - at once selfish, unabashed, and self-deprecating - is endearing in that way only she can be. After a long week of work and other grown-up responsibilities, it is definitely an escape to an imaginary world.

It's so bad. The odorous blend of raunchy moments and bargain basement comedy never stood a chance against my feelings of awkwardness and disgust. I made myself finish this movie because I trusted Goldie Hawn could turn this around. She didn't. I hope Schumer and Hawn found this movie rewarding, as it cost them my regard. There's no double-standard; I'm the furthest thing from a prude, but I expected a cast and a movie that respected its audience and I tried to connect with them. Parts of this movie have haunted my thoughts every time I consider watching Schumer or Hawn in anything since. I'm not sure I ever will again.

Amy Schumer and Goldia Hawn have great chemistry as a mother-daughter duo in this film. It has good pacing and is funny throughout. Yes, it has some issues with the way it represents some South American countries but I think the whole point of the film is to poke fun of the way some Americans see other countries as pleasure resorts where they can runaway from the problems of the real world with reckless abandon. Is this type of comedy new? No. Is it funny? Yes. And to be totally honest it is refreshing to see something that doesn't totally rely on being raunchy or gag-inducing for laughs. It is worth seeing.

It's not like Snatched is a bad film, it can get a fair few laughs thanks to its two leads. The problem is that one of them is clearly better, the plotline feels worn and outdated as hell and a full third of the film is barely even interesting. It snatched mediocrity from the jaws of awful, and that's something... I guess.
