Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Asterix and Obelix: The Middle Kingdom

Going for another wild adventure!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Following the previous movie (and their Christmas high jinks), Starlord (Chris Pratt) and his crew have to shake off the rust and spring into action to save one of their own. This is top notch Marvel again, showing off a big budget with CGI, a good and funny script (though somewhat dark in places) with character growth and many cool fights. I really liked it - highly recommended!

Asterix and Obelix: The Middle Kingdom

When a Chinese princess arrives at the indomitable village in Gaul to ask for help against traitorous governor, it's up to the usual duo of Asterix and Obelix to go to her aid. While the comically styled effects are fine, the script is a strange one to say the least. It's nice that there is tension and resolution between the two protagonists and that there is decent wire-work combat involved (because China) but there are lots of stupid level jokes and most of the build up either goes nowhere. Much like Quantumania not a lot changes between the beginning and the end so... not recommended.
