THOR: LOVE AND THUNDER is a rockin’ great time with electrifying action, a kick ass soundtrack, lots of laughs (the screaming goats!) and a profound story on absent gods & our desire for love. Natalie Portman makes a mighty triumphant return to the MCU & Christian Bale slays it as the terrifying Gorr. Taika Waititi has done it again, surpassing “Thor: Ragnarok” to deliver my favorite stand-alone Thor film yet!
Baz Luhrmann’s ELVIS equally dazzles & exhausts. Austin Butler rises above the glam & noise to provide a truly breathtaking performance while Hanks’ work will go down as some of the most perplexing of his career. Great makeup, sound & costumes. The dizzying editing made me nauseous in the first act (which is almost all done in montages) but it eventually settled down, relatively speaking. Still, an opulent mess.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME swings for the fences with the most ambitious live-action Spider-Man film yet. The execution can be a bit messy due to the overabundance of villains & CGI (most of which we’ve seen done in previous films before) but the stirring highs are worth it. Features Tom Holland’s most emotional & best performance to date. Out of all the villains, Willem Dafoe once again steals the show as the sinister Green Goblin. What a treat it was getting to see him reprising this iconic adversary nearly twenty years later.
