Do you hear the words, “I am Groot,” and smile? If so, then you are probably a fan of Guardians of the Galaxy. This comic-book movie series is fun for all. You don’t even need to be into comic books to enjoy these silly stories. The first Guardians of the Galaxy movie was in theaters in 2014. Many people were convinced that it was great entertainment.

Now, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is out. Star-Lord, played by Chris Pratt, and his team of heroes will save the universe again. This time, the narrative arc will be about Star-Lord’s parents. And of course, there will be both adventure and romance. As the leads, Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana’s characters fall in love, but will they stay in love?

Kelsey thinks Chris Pratt is awesome as the protector of the galaxy. But Jordin isn’t very excited about this movie. Find out if Kelsey can change her mind in today’s English lesson.

Kelsey:  Jordin, I’m so excited for the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

Jordin:  Oh! That’s great.

Kelsey:  Have you not seen the first one?

Jordin:  No.

Kelsey:  Why not?!

Jordin:  I don’t know. I wasn’t really interested. I’m not really into comic-book movies.

Kelsey:  Well, this one’s not your typical comic-book movie.

Jordin:  OK. What’s different about it?

Kelsey:  It’s basically a comedy, and Chris Pratt is the star, which is the best part.

Jordin:  OK…

Kelsey:  And he considers himself the protector of the universe, but he’s just completely silly in the whole thing.

Jordin:  I don’t know. It still doesn’t really sound like my style.

Kelsey:  I think you should give it a shot. What kind of movies do you like?

Jordin:  Like, romcoms usually.

Kelsey:  OK. Well, this is definitely a comedy, and then it has a romantic narrative arc.

Jordin:  What’s the romantic narrative arc in the movie?

Kelsey:  Well, clearly, Chris Pratt is the male lead.

Jordin:  OK.

Kelsey:  And then Zoe Saldana.

Jordin:  Ooo…

Kelsey:  And then in the second movie, we’ll see if it goes anywhere.

Jordin:  OK, you might have me convinced.

Kelsey:  But it’s hilarious, and Chris Pratt is awesome!

Jordin:  I can tell you really like Chris Pratt.

Kelsey:  Well, I’m kind of sad that you don’t.

Jordin:  Sorry!

Kelsey is very excited because Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is coming to theaters. She’s really into Chris Pratt and can’t wait to watch him in this movie. She tells Jordin, but Jordin isn’t excited. Kelsey asks her why not? Jordin explains that she doesn’t really like to watch movies based on comic books. She prefers to watch romcoms.

Kelsey thinks Jordin should give Guardians of the Galaxy a shot. It has both romance and comedy. Plus, the male and female leads have a narrative arc with lots of romantic difficulties. Jordin might like watching it, even if she doesn’t enjoy comics. And Kelsey reminds her, it has Chris Pratt in it! Jordin doesn’t really care about Chris Pratt, but she agrees to see the movie.

Do you like comic-book movies? Which story has your favorite narrative arc?

No, I don’t like comic-book movies.  I always think  the comic-book movies as the children’s thing.  I prefer to the movies about country life which is closer the real life but not fantasy.
