Starring Natalie Portman’s arms! Adding to the ever-evolving Thor mythos, Love and Thunder was an addition to the Marvel canon that was bright, mostly fun, and oozes Taiki Waititi’s style. In a crazy GNR backed romp, Thor Classic and Thor Jane take on a villain that makes us go “Wow, Christian Bale should play the Joker.” In a half-good, half-eye rolling movie, there’s fun for everyone, so long as you don’t mind the jokes.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is more Marvel fare and delivers exactly what you’d expect, but Sam Raimi is in full Raimi form with enough of a twist to keep it interesting. It’s just too bad that it’s co-protagonist is a MacGuffin.

We wondered how a spider-man movie could justify a two-and-a-half hour runtime. Well, turns out if you sprinkle in enough characters, enough nostalgia, and enough jokes, then top it with a healthy dose of multi-verse, it all works itself out. Maybe multi-verse is what Eternals was missing? Join us for the podcast to hear what we thought of Marvel’s latest Spider-man movie.
Marvel’s latest deep cut superhero origin story movie tries to do too much with too little and ends up disappointing. There’s too much runtime with not enough plot. There are too many characters with not enough development. There are too many scenes with not enough light.

We’re more than satisfied with the way that the first season of Loki ended, especially with how relevant it seems to next phase of the MCU and the moral conundrums it raises. Join us for the podcast to hear our full thoughts on episode 6, For All Time. Always.
We’ve seen the only MCU movie about an Avenger to be posthumously titled with just their name, no subtitles, and we’re here to say that it’s still worth watching. Despite it being an origin story (of sorts) for an already-dead character and having a few third-act question marks, it manages to deliver on comedy, heart, thrills, and spectacle you want from a mainline Marvel hero story.
We’re approaching the end of the season so the scale is ramping up. Luckily the effects budget is as well. But honestly, the thing we’re enjoying most are the multiple Loki storylines going on in this episode and the themes embedded within. Join us for the podcast for full coverage of this season’s penultimate episode.
Well, The Nexus Event didn’t deliver on the hopes we had for it to retroactively make the last episode more interesting, but it did deliver some big surprises of its own. We’re all set up for next week to be big. Sound familiar? Maybe we’re stuck in a time loop. Join us for the podcast to hear our full thoughts on Loki episode 4.
