I loved Thor: Ragnarok. It was one of the best, funniest movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I love the other works of director Taika Waititi. The dude is very creative and does good work. So I, like most people, was super excited for his direct follow-up, Thor: Love and Thunder. And I really like the movie, I think Thor: Love and Thunder is good. But all of the pieces were there where it could have been great.
Movie Rating: 7/10 – Good
I think my voice is just one in a multitude chorus of people having the same response to Love and Thunder. It’s not as good as Ragnarok. It’s still good and entertaining. But man, it’s nowhere near as amazing as we all hoped it would be. That’s a shame. But it’s not the end of the world. There are still a lot of great aspects about the movie to enjoy. And I would definitely recommend anybody to give it a watch. This is not the death knell of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, no matter what the haters say.
Join me after the jump for my full thoughts and review on Thor: Love and Thunder! Expect FULL SPOILERS for the whole movie. And feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments!Read the rest of this entry
Only a few short weeks after that awesome teaser, we’ve now got a full trailer for Thor: Love and Thunder. The movie looks great, and then Christian Bale’s Gorr the God Butcher villain shows up and looks freaky as hell!
Like all other sane human beings, I can’t wait for Thor: Love and Thunder. Ragnarok was amazing and hilarious, and everybody is back to make another one of those. Taika Waititi is a hell of a director and I can’t wait to see what he brings to the table for this new one. For example, holy cow, Gorr the God Butcher looks sublime in this new trailer.
We’ve had some toy and promo artwork revealed for the character, and who knew what it would all translate into. Now that we’ve got him on screen, in full makeup, doing his Christian Bale thing, Gorr looks great. I am thrilled at how he looks.
I’m thrilled about the whole dang thing! Thor: Love and Thunder comes to theaters in, like, a month on July 8.
