Haven't done any movie reviews for a while but I just got back from watching #ThorLoveAndThunder , so I thought I'd share what I thought about it. Spoilers follow❗️
Initially, I wasn't really sure what I felt about this movie. It definitely had some really great moments and was an extremely fun and silly film that also touched on some deep subjects, however briefly.
That balance of silly and deep felt a little shakier than it did in the previously installment, though. Thor: Ragnarok is one of my favorite MCU movies and a definite improvement over both its predecessors.
Thor: Love and Thunder builds on that, but fails to really live up to it. If Ragnarok had been like The Dark World, I think I would have been much impressed by Love and Thunder. But since it followed such a great movie it was hard not to feel like it was a little lackluster.
It did some good things that just weren't done as well as they could have been. Upon this, the story was cramped. It tried to do too much too fast, without building up to it.
The result were a collection of scenes that were super colorful and great and awesome, they just didn't really come together to make that full story. Lots of great pieces that just didn't end up fitting together.
Despite all of this, I still think it was a great movie. Not perfect, but very fun and very entertaining. It may not live up to Ragnarok, but it's a fun film that I would 1000% watch again, no question about it.
I wanted to see the Guardians for much longer, and I felt like there was some wasted potential they rushed by there. I also think that the process of Jane gaining the hammer was rushed into, like they were trying to get past the start of the movie as quick as possible.
But the rest of the moments were great. The flying viking ship powered by the axe and led by the goats was awesome, especially as it saved Thor and the gang accompanied by the excellent song selection in the movie.
The costumes were great, the movie was colorful, and the land of the gods was breathtaking. I liked what they did with Zeus and the gods and I can't wait to see how that turns out in the future.
Korg was great as always, as well as Valkyrie. I think the way the movie ended was also very great. Thor and Jane's story resolved, Gorr's daughter being taken in by Thor, who in turn now has a distinct purpose.
The actions sequences were outstanding. The music selection was, as I mentioned previously, amazing. It had all the makings of a near perfect film, but sadly stumbled a little on the delivery.
I honestly think that a new cut of this movie would do it wonders, but what do I know? Everything in the movie seemed so quick and rushed through, which was unfortunate since it was great fun while it lasted.
Anyway, I thought the movie was decent. Overshadowed by its predecessor, but pretty good and very fun. Like I said, I can't wait to re-watch it as it's always a fun time with the Lord of Thunder.
It was awesome to see the old "Thor Will Return" text at the end of the movie too, and I truly hope they go through with it. A Thor vs. Hercules fight that the post credits scene teased is something that I don't want to miss.
I hope Thor 5 does get made, and I honestly think that if they take their time on it and do it right, it could be the best one yet.
Overall, I would give #ThorLoveAndThunder an 8/10. #JuicinessScale Image

Okay, so the first movie I'm going to be talking about on this Twitter page is #BlackWidow. I saw this movie a little more than a week ago in theaters, and to say the least my expectations were exceeded. (1/11)
After the events of Avengers: Endgame, a movie about Black Widow seemed a little odd, if not unnecessary. When it was announced that this project would be a prequel, I think everyone lost a little bit of excitement for it. I know I did. (2/11)
I personally thought that this film wouldn't really have anything much to add to the MCU, and would just be another story about an action hero kicking butt. There was lots of that, of course, but the movie turned out to be so much more than that. (3/11)
