Thor: Love and Thunder (Now showing in theatres)
This film is rated PG-13 – for language, violence, very brief nudity, and children in peril.
Like half of America, this weekend I went to see the new Marvel film, Thor: Love and Thunder, and it’s good. Not great, but a solid outing from Marvel and the Mouse Overlord at Disney.
Firing up the cash machine in the bottom of the Mouse House, the newest entry into the Marvel Universe is sure to make a ton of money, and that’s great for our local theatre and it’s time well spent for the viewer.
Picking up after Endgame, Thor: Love and Thunder has a lot going for it. It has a pretty decent story, some great cameos (Zeus is hysterical, but I cannot understand why Zeus, a Greek God, has an Italian accent), and outstanding visual effects.
Back again is Chris Helmsworth and his gang, and doing her best “I am a block of wood with the emotional range of a rock impression,” Natalie Portman is on board as Thor’s ex-girlfriend, Jane Foster.
Add in a running gag with two giant goats, and you have a very enjoyable experience in the cinema.
I give it a solid three out of five stars. Let’s face it, you are going to see it. Everyone is. So sit back and enjoy it, but I do want to say this: I love going to the Cosmo! It’s not just that they have great prices, it’s the fact that they are generally happy to see you there. And I love that the concession folks know what I am going to order before I even get to the counter. Always clean, always friendly, I love our local cinema. Long live the Cosmo!
494 days until Dune Part 2. Just sayin’.
