The Weekly Stuff Podcast #436 – Thor: Love & Thunder Review and Remembering Kazuki Takahashi
It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.
This week saw the release of the hotly anticipated Thor: Love & Thunder, a movie we were both looking forward to given what an exceptional effort director Taika Waititi’s last go-round with Thor was in 2017’s Ragnarok. Alas, the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is maybe the most disappointing, a muddled, unfocused, and aesthetically disastrous mess that has some good ideas and moments, but never truly coheres. We review the movie in our typical spoiler-filled depth, and before that, Sean tells us about his continuing adventures in the world of Resident Evil, Jonathan gives his thoughts on Square Enix’s Triangle Strategy, and we remember the great mangaka Kazuki Takahashi, creator of Yu-Gi-Oh!, after he tragically passed away this week at the age of 60.
