A short while ago I watched the movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 and made two short videos, Deepest, Darkest Secret and Drax’s Wisdom. As I continued to watched the movie various “father wound” scenes stood out to me. As I have stated before, now that I’m in recovery the Holy Spirit has allowed me to see movies differently and notice subtle (and sometimes blatant) recovery tones within the movie.
The plot of this movie has been pasted below courtesy of Wikipedia:
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a 2017 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team Guardians of the Galaxy, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. It is the sequel to 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy and the fifteenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the Guardians travel throughout the cosmos as they help Peter Quill learn more about his mysterious parentage.
What I saw in this movie was a humorous example of characters suffering from the “father wound” and how it manifests itself in their lives as adults. This movie, although not therapy-accurate, brings humor to the Father Wound which affects many men and women. Hopefully, those who are in recovery can see the humor in this movie as much as I do. This video has a limited amount of comments to allow the viewer to come up with their own opinions.
