Episode #279: Thor: Love and Thunder

July 13, 2022

Welcome back boys and girls to your regularly scheduled podcast. Today Matt and Mike chat about the second Marvel Cinematic Universe film of 2022, Thor: Love and Thunder. Not Viking space god topics include Slash, Barrio Brewing Company, and large noggins.

Thor: Love and Thunder is a fine addition to the MCU, according to Mike. Matt found it to be just OK. He had much higher hopes for the film from the comedic genius Taika Waititi. The shining star of this film is Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher. He was creepy, looked amazing, and just an all around scary villain. Natalie Portman reprising her role as Jane Foster after 9 was really a great addition as The Mighty Thor AKA Lady Thor. Waititi even stayed true to the source material for Jane Foster’s Thor (SPOILERS, so just go watch the movie). If you are a huge Marvel nut like we are at the RFN podcast then this is a must see film! Mike with a great score awards Thor: Love and Thunder 4 out of 5 Reels. Matt a huge Thor and Marvel thought this film was mediocre at best. He awards it 3 out of 5 Reels.     

For next week’s review Matt of all hosts picked a horror movie to chat about. Edgar Wright’s first horror film Last Night in Soho just dropped on HBO Max. Thanks for listening and we will chat with you next week!
