Thor: Love and Thunder is one of the year’s funniest films.

It successfully combines 1990s nostalgia with every kind of nostalgia, whether you were born in the 70s, 80s, or later.

Remember Bloodsport and Jean-Claude Van Damme doing splits? If so, you are going to have a blast with the humor of this sort.

The jokes, and especially Chris Hemsworth’s performance as self-assured, sarcastic Thor, make the ingredients for this superhero cocktail.

And the light dances with darkness; Christian Bale as Gorr raises hairs!

Natalie Portman is phenomenal as Doctor Jane Foster, or The Mighty Thor. She brings a solid romantic flavor to this fourth installment. Directed by Taika Waititi. Running time: 119 minutes. Thor: Love and Thunder is in cinemas now.
