I always feel bad about writing the headlines for these because we reviewed a lot more than Thor: Ragnarok and Stranger Things Season 2. We also talked about Wonderstruck, The Killing of a Sacred Deer, and Super Mario Odyssey (a game for once!), in addition to the heavy hitters you want to hear about.
On Thor: Ragnarok, we spent some time debating our opinions on the first two Thor movies, followed by a thorough discussion on this new film. Will Ashton and I had the most disagreement over the film, while Maveryke Hines had an opinion somewhere in the middle. As always, it made for a fantastic debate I’ll be curious to revisit in a few months when the dust has settled. For now, I can safely say that director Taika Waititi should be allowed to do whatever film he wants from now until the end of time.
We did something a little different toward the end of the show in response to some user feedback (always send us your comments!) Listeners from the Now Conspiring days may remember how we used to do a brief overview of movie releases in the coming week, so you can all have a better idea of what’s on our radar. This seems especially important for the use of knowing which movie we’ll review the next weekend, so you can check out the same movie as well. Like a book club, basically.
This “Coming Soon…to theaters!” segment went a bit long, so apologies for that. But hopefully you’ll get some good use out of our ramblings.
