Flame On :: Episode 308 :: Thor: Love and Thunder Microsode
Flame ON! is the all-gay, all-geek podcast. Tune in as we dish on the latest in pop and queer culture.
She’s got eyes of the bluest skies, the power of Eternity, and all the screaming goats you can handle. The fourth installment of the Thor film franchise has made its way from the theater to your home television, so it’s time to emerge from the shadows and protect New Asgard. Whether you are worthy of Mjolnir, as jealous as Stormbreaker, or even if you flicked too hard, this is the podcast for you!
Welcome back fellow Midgard-bound Asgardians! As fall descends across the land, our mighty Warriors Three have assembled at the table of King Valkyrie to discuss, dissect, and disseminate upon the adventures of the one and only Thor. Wait. There’s another Thor? Helmed by the wacky and wonderful director Taika Waititi, the fourth installment in the Thor franchise takes the color saturation, jokes, and screaming goats and turns the dial all the way up to 11. To kick off the episode, the boys go around the table and share the parts of the film that really tickled their fancy. From the action, story telling, rear nudity of our star Chris Hemsworth, and the amazing villainy of Christian Bale‘s Gorr the God Butcher, to seeing the art of Russell Dauterman come to life on the silver screen, there’s a lot to love about this movie. From there, the boys then shift the conversation to the aspects of the film that could have used a bit more tweaking. From needing room for the serious moments to breathe, a more fleshed out story, to less screaming goats (for some of the boys), they don’t hold back on sharing their thoughts on how they would improve the movie. Finally, the boys dive into wild conjecture and speculation on where the story could head from here. What was their final take on the movie? Listen in to find out!
Sit back and get ready to FLAME ON!
