Soundtrack review: Guardians of the Galaxy ‘Awesome Mix Vol. 2’ brings more intergalactic groove – The ESO Broadcasting Network

The first Guardians of the Galaxy movie was a colorful, quirky, and hilarious shot of adrenaline to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the film owes part of its success to its soundtrack full of fun retro tunes, called, appropriately enough, the “Awesome Mix.” The film kicked things off with “Come and Get Your Love” by Redbone, and also included favorites like “Hooked on a Feeling” by Blue Swede and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.

Here are the biggest movies to keep on your radar: “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” (May 5) is my most anticipated movie of the summer and, unless there’s a surprise breakout film, it will likely be the biggest money-maker of the season. The previews so far have been tons of fun (I’m betting Drax and Baby Groot will steal the show). However, the […]

Return of the Jedi? Thoughts on the new trailer for ‘Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi’ – The ESO Broadcasting Network

Let the analysis begin! The first teaser trailer for “Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi” premiered last week, and fans immediately began dissecting it, puzzling over it, and speculating where the franchise is heading. The fascinating thing about the new Star Wars trilogy is that fans have no idea where the franchise is heading. With the prequels and even “Rogue One,” we knew where the story was ultimately going: the fall of Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader and the construction and destruction of the Death Star. But with “Episode VIII,” Disney and Lucasfilm are venturing into uncharted waters. Literally anything could […]
