Thor: Love and Thunder confused me. Intellectually it is just a paint-by-the-numbers Marvel movie that has a standard hero quest with obstacles, a fun romp with some thoughtful moments to give the stakes weight. It has a clear throughline, a "message" it wants to get across. Nothing philosophically deep. Hollywood stuff. But it is PERFECTLY executed, which makes it feel like so much more. I enjoyed it greatly.

There's one moment that is a bad trope in that movie near the end, that one I didn't like. But the facial expression in the last post-credits scene seems to me to indicate that it's not what it seems and *could* be a plot point to be resolved in the future. I don't think it will be, but it *could* be.
