Thor: Love and Thunder

Thor: Love and Thunder is a hilarious and over-the-top comedy, with plenty of suggestive and outright adult humor that will keep the audience in stitches throughout most of the two-hour run time. With Christian Bale and Russell Crowe making their debut in the MCU plus a Guardians of the Galaxy Guest spot, Love and Thunder is brimming with charisma and pure acting talent. But star power and witty writing aside, there just isn’t enough comic book in this movie to really propel anything in the MCU’s Phase 4 forward. It doesn’t introduce new characters (good and bad), it doesn’t leave a breadcrumb for the new big bad guy (good and bad), and it certainly doesn’t have enough breathing room for any one single character to have a meaningful or lasting impact on the story it just tried to tell. While the audience may be laughing to tears throughout certain parts of the movie, it is a cramped and fast movie that does leave some things to be desired.

Recap: 2022 Vol 1

It’s the middle of summer and that is prime box office season. 2022 is the year we all get to return to the theater, just like Tom Cruise in this random-ass out-of-touch tweet from a few years ago. So far 2022 has had a decent showing, with plenty of movies waiting in the wings to finally make their debut on the silver screen. Here is a list of every movie I’ve seen released in 2022. Click on each title to see the full review if available.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – It takes a while to get going and doesn’t quite add up to a great movie. There are oddly placed scenes and the usual clunky dialogue with less than stellar CGI that is becoming more and more problematic as the MCU goes on. Sam Raimi brings together a very familiar cast with a few new faces and creates one of the most promising Marvel movies to date because of the doors it opens for the rest of the multiverse. While he was allowed to push the PG-13 rating to its limit, the implied horror and brutality fell short of expectations.
