Highly Suspect Reviews: Thor: Love and Thunder

Thor: Love and Thunder Movie Review


You’re Thor? I’m so thor from laughing I can barely breathe. That was pretty much Chris, Danni, and Wright’s reaction to Taika Waititi’s follow-up to his wonderful (sorry haters) Thor: Ragnarok. Now with Asgard on Earth being run by Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) as a tourist attraction and Thor taking on jobs with the Guardians of the Galaxy, everything seems chill. But wait…there’s this guy Gorr (Christian Bale) who has got ahold of a powerful God-killing weapon and is putting it to work across the universe. Thor has to leave his merry band of space mercenaries and go look into it. Meanwhile on Earth, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) has stage 4 cancer with no hope seemingly in sight until she feels a call from Asgard summoning her to the broken hammer Mjolnir… While this latest entry might fall too hard on the goofy side for some, it was pure pleasure for our reviewers. Listen to them gush about it here.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas in 1992 where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal” turned into a full-time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this community of critics. While Brian eventually followed his heart to a new family, Chris continues on with a cast of colorful folks from all over the country (and a few others). You can also check out Chris in his videocast, along with Martin Thomas and Danni Danger, that One Of Us does with our friends at Bell of Lost Souls: Crossover Event. He also regularly guests on the video game website Rage Select. Follow Chris on Twitter and Facebook and check out his Amazon Wish List.

Danni’s expertise lies in comic books, superhero movies, science fiction/fantasy, horror, and cheesy dad jokes. They spent 5 years creating YouTube content about comic books for The Weirdlings, and now they’ve awoken from the Geeksleep ready to speculate about various multiverses, fandom life, and weird but adorable ‘ships.

Wright hails from the northern suburbs of Dallas, Texas. His passion for filmmaking brought him to Austin to study and make movies. Since then he’s had his hand in acting, writing, and directing his own short films with numerous like-minded film geeks he’s met along his journey. His newest interest has brought him into the podcasting world. He co-hosted a few different movie related podcasts such as ‘And Now This’ and ‘The Match Cut’. He currently co-hosts with longtime friend, Eric Samaniego, where they talk shop about the grimiest, trashiest, lost gems of movies on their show, ‘Trash in the Can’. Wright also guests and hosts reviews on Screener Squad and Highly Suspect Reviews as well as co-hosts Digital Noise with Chris Cox.
