Taika Waititi: Transphobic Tweets Resurface From 2013

Oscar-winning filmmaker Taika Waititi is in hot water this week after nine-year-old transphobic tweets resurfaced from 2013. I’m not sure how the tweets first resurfaced this week but the tweets went viral as the Thor: Love and Thunder filmmaker was ratioed on Twitter. In the first tweet, the Jojo Rabbit filmmaker writes: “No disrespect to men who want to be/dress as woman. I should have just said their makeup looks manly. Also no disrespect to…

Taika Waititi, Marvel Studios, and Auteur Filmmaking

Taika Waititi went from indie film to Marvel blockbusters while bringing his humor to both Thor: Ragnarok and Thor: Love and Thunder. I saw one of the worst possible takes that I’ve ever seen about a Marvel movie: comparing Thor: Love and Thunder to Batman and Robin. Both Thor and comic book movies are going to be fine. What makes this take so bad is that Batman and Robin practically killed the Batman franchise until…

Thor: Love and Thunder Brings the Fun

Thor: Love and Thunder brings all the fun in this long overdue reunion between Thor Odinson and ex-girlfriend Jane Foster. After a gazillion Marvel films, you should probably know to stay for the credits. There are two scenes during the credits: mid-credits and post-credits. After Thor: Ragnarok set a high bar, Thor: Love and Thunder has a challenge of living up to expectations. Unlike the other MCU stars, Thor is the only character to get…

Lightyear Goes To Infinity And Beyond!

Disney and Pixar’s Lightyear goes to infinity and beyond in this Toy Story spinoff focusing on the origins of Buzz Lightyear in 1995. There is a mid-credits scene and two post-credits scene, including after the studio logos. Depending on who you speak with, this film might not be necessary. However, it’s a lot of fun to watch especially thanks to Chris Evans voicing the captain. He adds a lot of fun to the film amid…

Thor: Love and Thunder – Teaser Trailer Is Here

With just over two and a half months remaining before Thor: Love and Thunder hits theaters, Marvel released the teaser trailer. After months of waiting, I naturally assumed that Marvel would just attach it as a mid-credits or post-credits scene to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Alas, they went ahead and released it this week. There’s not much to see in the 1:30 trailer. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) works off the weight he put…

Free Guy Arrives on Home Video

The long-delayed Free Guy offers audiences a rocking good time as the Shawn Levy-directed film starring Ryan Reynolds arrives home. I’m a fan of Shawn Levy and will see anything that he directs. Ryan Reynolds turns in another solid Ryan Reynolds performance that only Ryan Reynolds can do. Listen, there are other actors but Ryan Reynolds is Guy. He’s got the charming humor required to pull off the performance. There aren’t many other actors who…

What If…?: Animated Series Depicts A Different MCU

Marvel Studios’ What If…? takes what we know as the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) but delivers the animated action with a twist. The series draws on the Marvel Comics anthology series of the same name. Like the comic series, this is also an anthology series. We revisit key moments of the MCU through the eyes of Marvel newcomer Jeffrey Wright, who voices The Watcher, and see what would happen had characters done A instead of…
