under the cut for spoilers and probably unpopular opinions
It really seems like it could be summed up with; it needed more female representation, the love between Gamora and Star Lord isn’t earned(as in there wasn’t more done to show Star-Lords womanizing as the negative it clearly was), and their are many jokes done in poor taste largely to the detriment of women. Also given the huge cast of characters, it’s a shame that character development was largely left to archetypes rather than fleshed out characters that had more earned development. Apparently should have just been a movie of Nebula and Gamora growing up?
And I don’t really get the references to Alien and Star Wars.
