In some ways, Thor: Love and Thunder feels like it was created by someone telling a computer to vomit out a sequel to Thor: Ragnarok. That third movie centered around Thor was surprisingly good, and served as a comedy-heavy breath of fresh air that the series badly needed, given the other two films were merely okay at best.
It feels cynical, in so many ways. Thor being paired with Hulk in Ragnarok worked? Throw the Guardians of the Galaxy into this one! People liked all the humor in Ragnarok? Throw a random joke at the audience every few seconds! Oh, the emotional moments in Ragnarok were also good? Throw in a poorly handled cancer storyline with Jane Foster! It all just feels uncanny and rotten, and is easily one of the MCU’s most creatively bankrupt movies.
