Wednesday Whatever - Thor: Love and Thunder

 Ray chose Thor: Love and Thunder to see on his birthday. It was zany, silly, slapstick movie fun. We expected nothing less.  I won't discuss plot. Doesn't matter. 

Chris Hemsworth as Thor is in on the joke and plays him to perfection. He's just a fine specimen of a man. 'Nuff said. 

Natalie Portman as Jane/Female Thor is always a good actress.  Christian Bale as Gorr, the villain, was suitably creepy (though yes, Ralph Fienes as Voldemort was even creepier. Their looks are similar),  Tessa Thompson as King Valkyrie gets her due. And Russell Crowe as Zeus - hilarious casting and stole the show. 

It's summer in Texas. We are crazy from the heat and do not need deep plot right now. Do we want  to laugh? Yes. Be entertained? Yes.  Did we enjoy Thor: Love and Thunder? Absolutely.  Pure movie joy with no useful purpose in life. Easy to forget...sure. Does that matter? NO.  It's summer, folks!


  1. Since it's Marvel, I expected more, but it was a dumb and silly way to waste a couple hours in a cool theater.

    1. Exactly. Can't over think a Thor movie. Just sit back, eat popcorn, and laugh! Hope you are well and enjoying just that - summer fun.

  2. Hi Joanne - sounds fun and appropriate for Ray ... and at least you were in the cool - cheers Hilary
