KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Is Star Lord Chris Pratt still a star? Shawn and Russ let us know what's up with the sequel to "Guardians of the Galaxy."

Walt Disney Pictures

When Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" landed in theaters in 2014, it hit pay dirt. That funny, offbeat and unfamiliar comic book adaptation made a star out of star lord Chris Pratt. While "Vol. 2" isn't quite as successful, it is still an entertaining intergalactic farce.

Not nearly as fun or fresh as the original. However still a fun watch.

It has an appealing cast, a nostalgic soundtrack and an affable spirit that helps gloss over its flaws. It actually makes you want to see "Vol. 3."

Love the cast. But you can totally see this franchise drifting toward becoming a cinematic theme park ride.

2) CHUCK (R)
IFC Films

Liev Schreiber’s affable performance is the driving force behind “Chuck,” the true story of ups and downs in the life of Chuck Wepner, the boxer who inspired the story of “Rocky” and gained fame by going 15 rounds with Muhammad Ali.

This may be the most underrated boxing movie in the history of the genre. It's a great story told very well and driven by a stellar cast.

The strong supporting cast includes Jim Gafigan, Elizabeth Moss and Naomi Watts. While it’s no knockout, “Chuck” is one likable palooka.
