Tonight I saw Guardians of the Galaxy 2, quickly followed by a French documentary about love and toxic masculinity in the Paris projects.... remarkably, they both had similar themes. Though, of the two, the Guardians of the Galaxy movie was far more hilarious.

I don't actually have much to say beyond that, because I don't want to spoil the film for anyone. 

But yeah... it was good? Like, it was funny, and had a good message - I laughed, I cried, I cared deeply for characters that SHOULD be absolutely ridiculous and yet aren't. I loved how every single character (nearly) was a super complex character who was never only good or bad. 

That's sort of what I wanted my fantasy novel to be more about, but I don't think I've gotten there yet. There's so many things I have to fix in the second draft, and I haven't even finished the first draft. Yarr.

Anyway, I'm exhausted, so that's all your getting in terms of a movie review.

Oh, except to say that Towards Tenderness really drove home the fact that men being in a position where they can challenge toxic masculinity instead of having it shackle them to a life of misery is a position of privilege, my goodness.

Okay, now THAT's all your getting. :P
