It seems that with Ego in this movie, they tried to throw in some old-school Beyonder, too; completely alone for millions of years, and both intrigued and repulsed by other "inferior" life forms.

2 years from now Ramz is going to claim he never said anything bad about GotGV2 and I will pull up his comments.

Or you'll say that I said that everyone in Guardians looked like cosplay characters and I'll say no, I said the movie wasn't great.

ps. seriously, do the consistent one liners not get super annoying to you idiots? I'm curious as to what you like about the 50% of the dialogue.

In something like Avengers, the one-liners were over done because Joss Whedon has no other way to write dialogue.  There should have been a little more drama involved.

For Guardians of the Galaxy, it's kooky and weird enough not to bother me.  It fits the tone of the movie.  In fact, I have trouble believing the dramatic moments in Guardians, despite being few and far between.

Not really but I enjoy Kevin Smith/Judd Appatow/Seth Rogen comedies and the humor is all one liners. Sometimes even one liners being tossed back and fourth for minutes on end.

I felt the gags and quips in Avengers 1 were done perfectly (infrequent and fit the characters). In AoU, Whedon went too heavy in a few scenes, and it was either bad or distracting.

There was a lot of great humour, Drax in particular, but way too many of the jokes fell flat

But I did still like it more than the first one

Also a lot of great character moments.

Finally saw this today, and I agree about the humor. 50% was great. The other 50% was trying too hard... like the "it's not ripe" thing. That's just too silly and tossed in for a dumb laugh that distracted from three scenes.

But Peter geeking out after finding out he has godly powers on Ego's planet? That was funny because it felt natural to the character and the situation. "I'm gonna build some weird shit."

The emotional dramatic moments were really solid... but a few got cut short by dumb jokes or switching immediately to a light-hearted comedy scene.

Overall, good movie. A solid B.

BTW, Ego has been around millions of years. He never met another Celestial? They can't have died out millions of years ago. People still know about them, some knowof their connection to the stones, and people are even mining through the one Celestial head at Nowhere.

I wonder if Ego just considered himself a general "Celestial-god-type" being while being unique from other such beings.

The collector knew about them and he's supposed to be super old. My guess is that Ego is the last celestial created sometime after the others died/left. The Collector and others like him we're created about the time the other celestials disappeared.

Or movie Celestials don't = what we understand about comic book Celestials

And the Nowhere mining head thing was a nice easter egg for fans and not much more

The Celestial they showed in the first GotG or whatever during the flashback looked like a traditional one.  The one that had the power gem in his staff and killed stuff.

They might just refer to a vast number of people as Celestials.  Ego, the traditional Celestials, etc.  Maybe Thanos will be called a Celestial.

Yeah, that's a possibility. Celestial is just a term for any god-like being, so he is unique compared to the other God types. Still sucks he died. I wanted him there for Infinity Gauntlet.

Well he did plant those seeds on other planets, so maybe if we are lucky they will use that as an excuse to bring him back. Like a bit of his essence survived.

I think you're right.  So who else have we seen that could be considered a Celestial under this idea?  Dormammu?
