The thunder strikes at home
I saw Thor: Love and Thunder and the theaters and enjoyed it. It didn’t blow me away the way Raganok did, but it was a fun time (You can check out our full movie review HERE). But seeing how I do like to have a copy of all the Marvel movies when Disney offered me a chance to review the home version, I jumped at it.
Like I said, I did see this in theaters, so it’s just amazing how much digitally is involved with filmmaking. It really makes the transfer to a home copy quite easy. It’s a really nice print and the sound is great as well. When I watched at home, it was almost like being at the theater. Have to love technology.
The Digital Download comes with the same extras as the Blu-Ray or 4K does.
There are 3 featurettes. The first one is Hammer-worthy: Thor and The Mighty Thor. This one is mainly about Jane Foster as the Mighty Thor. From her beginnings in the comics to being played by Natalie Portman in the film. There are some nice interviews here. The director, actors, producers, and even the costume designer. The only people that were not interviewed that should have been? writer Jason Aaron and artist Russell Dauterman. This is what ticks me off about ALL Marvel films and Disney. Not giving creators the credit for the characters. This featurette was interesting, but other voices needed to be heard again.
The next featurette is Shaping a Villain which is all about the movie’s villain Gorr. This one is just like the Mighty Thor one. Again, it was interesting, but again forgetting the character creators Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic.
The final featurette is Another Classic Taika Adventure which is about director Taika Waititi and how his vision of Thor changed the character. I really enjoyed this one. Waititi has a unique vision where he blends humor with drama, so I’ve enjoyed what he’s done with Thor.
There is a Gag Reel, which are always entertaining. These always have me wanting more.
There are deleted scenes and in watching them, I understand why they are removed. Some were too goofy and others would have taken are from the tone of the movie.
Finally, there is audio commentary by director/writer Taika Waititi. I feel it’s been a while since I’ve watched a film with audio commentary, so I really enjoyed getting in Waititi’s head.
Overall I do think this is a great film to have at home. Thor: Love and Thunder is a really nice family film and just great for Marvel movie collection.
Marvel and Disney just needs to start giving the comic creators the proper credit they deserve.
Thor: Love and Thunder is now available on Digital and will be released on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD September 27.
