6 Thoughts on Thor: Love and Thunder (Review)

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!

Gorr the God Butcher Steals the Show in the New Thor 4 Trailer

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.

Thor: Love and Thunder Looks Amazing, As We Knew It Would

The first teaser trailer arrived yesterday for Thor: Love and Thunder, the next great, hilarious Thor movie by director Taika Waititi. I loved Thor: Ragnarok and I couldn’t be more excited for what Love and Thunder has to offer.

I think this looks great! I love the idea of Jane Foster coming back as the Mighty Thor. I love main Thor’s journey of self reflection, and all his new costumes. I’m excited to see Gorr the God Butcher. This whole, wild crazy thing is going to be great!

Thor: Love and Thunder comes out on July 8!

Taika Waititi is Making a New Pirate TV Show, and I am Here For It

I had no idea this was coming. Good thing trailers exist. Taika Waititi is producing a pirate TV show for HBO Max called Our Flag Means Death. It looks great!

I am 100% in favor of Waititi just making all the things. We’ve got Thor: Love and Thunder due out later this year, and it promises to be a real gas. Now we’ve got this TV show, coming in March. I love having good things to watch on the horizon!

Just a Bunch of Trailers!

Joker was not good. That’s not fair. It’s probably a really well made, well acted film and a lot of people will think it’s good. But it’s not for me, it’s not my kind of movie. It’s dark, ugly and severely misanthropic. No thanks.

So how about we look forward to other movies and TV shows?! New York Comic-Con is in full effect and a whole bunch of new trailers are coming out!

Like HBO’s His Dark Materials show. I never read the books and barely remember The Golden Compass movie from a few years ago, so this trailer looks really bonkers to me! Hopefully good bonkers.

Then we’ve got this new war movie, 1917, coming out before the end of the year. This one looks to be pretty darn fantastic.

There’s no trailer yet for Ryan Reynolds’ new movie, Free Guy, about a random bank employee who realizes he’s an NPC in a video game. But there’s this funny ‘meet the cast’ video. Reynolds and Taika Waititi are hilarious together!

It’s nice that they finally get to work together.
