Thor: Love and Thunder

In 2017, one of the freshest breaths of fresh air hit the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the form of Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok. It was a treat in terms of visuals, humor, character and story, and easily remains in my Top 5 MCU projects to this day. I know not everyone agrees, obviously, but I really liked it–I’ve loved Taika Waititi as a director for some time now, and this was another winner in my book. Now at the time, all-things Marvel were building to the big mega-event that is now known as Infinity War and Endgame. Now it’s been a couple of years, and the dust from that double-act has settled and reformed, and Marvel is working hard to establish a strong path forward.

Enter Thor: Love and Thunder.

A while ago (indeed, almost a whole year ago), it was my birthday! And to add to all the real life goals and challenges that that brings, I’ve created at least one as it relates to movies and this blog–watch a film I’ve never seen before which came out in each year of the fifty years before I was born, and then write a bit about it.  This is Post #50. The last one! That’s good, because my birthday is tomorrow!
