Since having my son Alexander, my wife and I were unsure of when our next visit to the movies might be. But we really wanted to see Thor: Love and Thunder, which has gotten mixed reactions from fans. After the mess that was Thor: Dark World, I will say I did have a little doubt. But when my mom offered to babysit, I took my gorgeous wife to the movies for the first time since the hospital.
The movie takes place after Endgame with Thor getting bored with his time with the Guardians of the Galaxy. He eventually hears about Gorr the God Butcher that is about to target New Asgard on Earth.
To his shock, his ex-girlfriend Jane Foster not only has his old hammer but is technically now the Mighty Thor herself. I will say I did enjoy Jane in her new superhero role but I definitely didn’t enjoy the darker side of that deal.
Gorr the God Butcher came out in the comics about the same time as the first Thor film which explains why I’ve never heard of him before. But he was a pretty neat villain and Christian Bale did pretty well.
While the trailer did spoil the scene, so it wasn’t a surprise, if you still have the chance to watch it in a room full of people at the theater, you can definitely hear how happy all the women are, LOL.
I did find the concept of Zeus and Thor existing in the same universe at the same time a bit contradictory, but it works I suppose. At least the MCU Zeus is pretty accurate to Greek mythology as he’s definitely a womanizer first and a god second.
Just like Thor: Ragnarok, one of the best parts about the movie is Korg. Almost everything he says is absolutely funny. In case you didn’t know, he’s played by the director of both this film and Ragnarok, Taika Waititi.
I will say that it’s definitely not as good as Ragnarok but I still really enjoyed it. I’ll definitely rewatch it again when it comes out on Disney + later in the year. I think I favor the first Thor movie just a tad more but probably just because of Loki. But all three movies are absolutely solid gold compared to the second Thor movie.
