As a huge Mysterio fan (who doesn’t love old fishbowl head?), there’s a real treat in seeing Spidey’s most theatrical villain brought to life by such an accomplished actor. Also, as the kids would say, that illusion fight scene is pure fire. Love and Thunder manage to embrace the silliness of comics while telling a surprisingly poignant story about how fundamentally we all need one thing, love. It also has one of the MCU’s scariest ever villains, Gorr the God Butcher . Kaecilius is such a half-baked villain he’s basically still dough, while the actual plot isn’t the most daring basically serving as a cut and dry origin story. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 isn’t quite as sharp as its predecessor, but it’s still a fun action romp that builds on what director James Gunn established in that first movie.
