I feel conflicted with this movie because, on one hand, I had a lot of fun watching it in theaters while on the other hand, I’ve been enjoying the more serious MCU movies more than this one. So, I both liked and just a teeny bit disliked it. My only, but pretty significant, problem was that there were too many jokes. It was constantly one joke after another, which is fine for a plain old comedy, but for a movie that is also trying to go over some serious stuff, it’s a little much. Almost any serious moment is basically forgotten because it’s overshadowed by funny. While Love and Thunder is definitely not in my top 10 MCU movies I do think it’s a good addition. I feel like it makes a good palate cleanser you know, after watching some sad/darker ones you get to watch a nice cheery one.
I also reluctantly feel like I have to mention the one thing that people would not shut up about with this movie…the CGI. I hope I’m not the only one here but I did not give a shit about “bad” CGI. I don’t know if I’m just easy to please when it comes to special effects but Thor was completely fine to me. Sure when people posted stills on Twitter they looked pretty fake but not once did I notice anything that looked like shit when watching the movie. And I like to think that that has something to do with the fact that movies are meant to be watched when they’re playing not when they’re paused.
So, all together I would give Thor Love and Thunder a 7 out of 10. Good but not my favorite.
