When the character of Ayesha was first introduced in the comics, she was just named "Her" (since she was created as a counterpart to the character Adam Warlock, originally named "Him"). She then took on the name "Kismet,"and then was renamed yet again as "Ayesha." In "Fantastic Four" #11 (by Chris Claremont, Salvador Larroca and Art Thibert) the Four ask her for her name, and she replies: "I have had many, but the most appropriate is Ayesha: She--who must be obeyed!" Both the name "Ayesha" and the sobriquet "She who must be obeyed" are references to the 1880s adventure novel She: A History of Adventure by H. Rider Haggard. The main character of the story was also a priestess named Ayesha (also referred to throughout as "She-who-must-be-obeyed"). The elaborate Art Deco-style costume and production design for this movie's Ayesha is also a nod to the most famous movie adaptation of Haggard's novel, She (1935). See more »

There's a girl in this harbor town / And she works layin' whiskey down / They say, Brandy, fetch another round / She serves them whiskey and wine / The sailors say, Brandy, you're a fine girl.

The first Guardians was great. It was unexpected, fresh, funny, with exciting characters and a decent story. For the sequel they kept the characters, but the jokes were forced (I only had a few laughs), the characters, although they were the same, became much less likable, and there was hardly any story. It was boring, and after the first hour or so, I was eagerly waiting for the movie to end. While in the first film the old school music was a clever tool to create a unique atmosphere, in this one it quickly became tired, as the movie was too heavily relying on it. Also, they used waaaaay too much exposition. Almost everything you learn about the characters, their backstories and the plot itself, they tell you through dialogue. (That's poor writing.) One more thing that really bothered me (among many other things) was Sean Gunn. He is clearly not a good actor, but for some reason (probably because he's the director's brother) he got much more screen time than in the first film. And it didn't work. Just like most of the movie.
