Thor: Love and Thunder
« on: July 11, 2022, 12:57:59 PM »
The next awaited Thor movie released last Friday.   Thor: Love and Thunder... did anyone have a chance to check this out?

I'm glad they brought back Natalie Portman ... and I won't spoil how in case you have totally avoided all spoiler containing trailers.   They bring back some of the same elements from Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok.  I will say... some of those elements they did better in Ragnarok for sure.

The movie, overall, was an enjoyment to watch.  There are definitely some disjointed parts of the movie and it jumped around more than Ragnarok as well.  I am being vague on purpose and will fill in those thoughts more as more of you see the movie.

Thoughts? Comments?  Post it up!

I just saw "No Way Home" only last week. And my Daughter and I are trying to find time to watch "Multiverse of Madness" right now. Not sure when this will be watched. It will probably be streaming by the time we get around to it.  :))

Was going to watch it a couple of weekends ago but there were street closures near the theater due to some festival, so wife and I decided against it.

Maybe not this weekend but the next. Should be less people there as well since it's been out for a while.

@BLUEVOODU I did not make it. Too many things going on right now. Will probably just wait for D+ now. Which sucks because I really wanted to watch it in the theater but I think it's too late now.

Okay I sat down and finally watched this movie yesterday. I think the storyline was good. The progression of the whole movie, I felt, was smooth. The only issue, I had, was that Thor was totally out of character, a buffoon, big idiot, throughout the whole movie. This made the movie awkward, ruined, trashed, and wasted. I really tried hard to like this movie. But the elephant in the room was embarrassing to the MCU. This could have been......you know.......a good movie to round out the Thor movies. Instead............ we have this stinker. Ragnarok still remains the best of the Thor movies with the first movie taking second place. I really don't want to see another movie like this one with the Thor character.

Finally saw this movie and thought it was actually pretty great. I think overall the themes make sense. The movie made it pretty clear that he's still lost and isn't fully happy with himself. Defeating Thanos is not just some miracle event that fulfills you. Thor is definitely in the "what now?" stage of his life.

I loved the how they nailed the Love and Thunder theme as well. And Christian Bale was a great villain. I think he helped the movie along and his acting was top notch. He was hamming it up and it looked like he was having fun with it.

Oh and Natalie Portman as Thor was awesome. I thought she made a great Thor and was hoping it would continue. It probably will as the 1st end credit scene leaves it kind of open.


The only thing I thought was too much was...

Spoiler: ShowHide
The screaming goats. They had some great moments like when they landed on the shadow realm planet. I think if they had not had them screaming every time it would've hit harder. It still made me laugh 90% of the time though.


As someone who lost family members to aggressive cancer during the pandemic, I think this movie hit a little close, and under the cheesy and campy dialogue there was a good message about life in general. Overall, it was a solid movie that I wished I saw in the theaters. I'm definitely picking this up on blu-ray and adding it to the collection.

And Christian Bale was a great villain.

That was the thing that kept my interest through the movie. I expected the villain to be lame, but Bale delivered the goods!
