It's fine if people don't think Yondu is a good enough person to deserve any emotional resolution, but I'm not sure we're supposed to think he wasn't pretty shitty to Peter either way.

This seems a bit defensive. The secret says OP would've liked too see emotional resolution for Yondu and Peter, but with slower pacing and better development.

Well, that's true. I was kind of responding to the general discussion, not all of which is focused on there being room for improvement.

... but nobody is saying that Yondu wasn't a good enough person to deserve any emotional resolution. I see a lot of comments objecting to how the movie downplayed his crap parenting, but most of them support the idea that his death was a waste of a good character, or that if he had to die it would've been better to give him a longer, more credible story arc first.

Hmm, I think one or two people in this thread definitely seem uncomfortable with him getting any redemption (considering he does die for Peter and has some acknowledgement of his own flaws in the end, you can't say it's a consensus that he doesn't) and are saying it wasn't sad to see him go period, not prematurely. Forgive me for acknowledging those opinions have their place even if I misunderstood them.

My point is that the movie doesn't really ask us to be as forgiving of Yondu as Peter himself is able to be because the bittersweet reality of his upbringing is that he could have ended up with much worse than Yondu after he lost his mom, so the story doesn't really need to earn that emotional resolution in a drawn-out way for me, but I can understand people being put off by the sentimental redemption being achieved in the seemingly easy way.

Fandom seems to be determined that he was a perfect dad.

One drawing doesn't speak for the rest of fandom. Even Yondu fans.
