“Baby Driver” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” are both music-driven films from what normally aren’t music-driven genres, the former a crime movie full of car chases and the latter a superhero flick.
Both move to the beat of killer soundtracks full of ’70s rock and pop, ’60s soul and R&B and guilty pleasures from across the years. And both start with music that meant a lot to the dear departed mothers of the two main characters, Ansel Elgort’s Miles (aka “Baby”) in “Baby Driver” and Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill in “Guardians.”
