Fancy Boys Go To The Movies: Thor: Love And Thunder

Fancy Boys Go To The Movies: Thor: Love And Thunder

(EDITOR’S NOTE: This review will be spoiler free. If it ain’t in the trailer, it ain’t here.)

Thor: Love And Thunder, the fourth titular film with the God Of Thunder and director Taika Waititi’s second effort in the franchise, has opened to lower Rotten Tomatoes score yet higher box office totals than it’s immediate predecessor, the excellent Thor: Ragnarok. If the critical consensus is that Love And Thunder is trying too hard to recapture the formula and magic from Ragnarok, the movie-going audiences have responded with a hearty, “We do not care. We just want to give money to the MCU.”

And it is clear that Love And Thunder has a lot of effort and flare and jokes. Waititi and star (and co-producer Chris Hemsworth) clearly felt the pressure to make this film a bigger spectacle. Because of that, you see a lot more storylines and punchlines and yelling sheep. But how does it all come together as a final product?

Ok, I guess… and that’s kind of the problem.

The Best Understanding of Why You Should Yell at a Douchebag at a Steakhouse…

The Best Understanding of Why You Should Yell at a Douchebag at a Steakhouse…

Wednesday, news was made when pro-choice activists staked out a Morton’s Steakhouse where Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was eating. According to reports, these protestors called the restaurant and demanded Kavanaugh be kicked out and were yelling so fiercely that the justice had to leave out the back. The restaurant chain called the yelling by the activists, “an act of selfishness and void of deceny”, and if they think that’s bad, they should see some of the bullshit this dickhead Kavanaugh has been doing from the bench!

A lot of the same conservatives who are condemning what happened Wednesday are the same people who also have the dumbest arguments against a woman’s right to choose her own reproductive care. So when they tell us that we shouldn’t be ok with what happened outside this Morton’s all I can think to respond is, “You were the ones who wrote the playbook.”

The Absolutely Official (and CORRECT!) MCU Rankings!

The Absolutely Official (and CORRECT!) MCU Rankings!

With Thor: Love And Thunder preparing to hit theaters and dominate the box office this weekend, I thought I would take a moment a look back at the MCU. Because you cannot deny the overwhelming effect that Marvel has had on the movie industry, and it’s not always good.

The Reasons Why Donald Trump May Announce His 2024 Presidential Campaign Shortly (and the one reason that is absolutely not true)

The Reasons Why Donald Trump May Announce His 2024 Presidential Campaign Shortly (and the one reason that is absolutely not true)

If you are to believe Alex Jones and Roger Stone, Donald Trump will be using the Independence Day holiday as the way to kick off his 2024 run for office of President Of The United States of America, a job he recently held until Joe Biden absolutely decimated him in the 2020 election. Now, short of mental illness, I’m not sure why anyone would trust anything Jones or Stone says, but I do think their prediction has a chance of coming true.

Let’s talk about why.

Well, if you’re just going to come right out and tell us you’re horrible fascists…

Well, if you’re just going to come right out and tell us you’re horrible fascists…

It’s been two days since the Supreme Court decided to overturn the Roe V Wade ruling which has been part of our nation for the last five decades, and you can already feel that our country is different. By different, I, of course, mean worse.

Masks, CRT, Grooming: What Comes Next In Schools

Masks, CRT, Grooming: What Comes Next In Schools

As Teacher Appreciation Week comes to a close, it seems like teachers aren’t getting appreciated at all. All over the country, people have been interrupting school board meetings complaining about the horrible assault happening to the children. From mask mandates to the teaching of CRT to the accusations of grooming (which I’m assuming is not about getting kids to brush their hair), conservatives are furious about what is happening to the youth.

And I have bad news for America… it’s nowhere near done.

The Truth About Elon Musk And Twitter: A Fancy Boys Exclusive

The Truth About Elon Musk And Twitter: A Fancy Boys Exclusive

When news broke yesterday that billionaire weirdo Elon Musk had purchased Twitter, the social media site became abuzz with theories. Is this simply a way for Musk to add to his pile of expensive toys? Or was this a way for Musk to allow people like Donald Trump to rejoin the platform (which might be the only way for him to, legitimately, win back the presidency in 2024)?

The truth is much more weird, as the truth usually is.

The Company We Keep: CPAC, Marjorie Taylor Greene and White Nationalism…

The Company We Keep: CPAC, Marjorie Taylor Greene and White Nationalism…

Last weekend was CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Committee, so a ton of Republicans went down to Orlando to watch some speeches and maybe visit the new Star Wars exhibits that Disney has. CPAC’s chairman is Matt Schlapp, who famously left Michelle Wolf’s speech at the White House Correspondence Dinner with his wife, Mercedes, when he claimed that Wolf was an out of touch elite liberal who didn’t speak for the American people. Look, no one should be punished for their name, but if Schlapp was going to speak for the American people, he should have changed his wife’s name, just for one night, to “Gently Pre-Used Honda Civic”.

Anyways, CPAC has this wonderful thing happen every year where some loud racist conservative says something racist and says it quite loudly. This is then followed by the RNC trying to disavow the comments as quick as they can so they can spend the entire weekend complaining that the media is only covering one loud racist and not the other racists who are much more cool about keeping their feelings hush hush. My bet is a lot of CPAC members don’t visit Epcot.

So, did this happen this year? Yes. Well, kind of. And it leads to some thoughts about why we say the things we say in front of the people we say them to.

You Can Receive 81,282,632 Votes And Still Have Nobody Like You

At the time I’m writing this, President Joe Biden has an approval rating, according to the FiveThirtyEight site, of 41.8%, and that is not a good number. It’s not the worst his approval ratings have been at, but I don’t see it taking any monumental changes anytime soon. It appears that Biden will have the same fate of former President Trump, whose approval rating always seemed to stay between 40-43%.

Liberals are disappointed with him because he’s unable to do any of the things they want him to do because of the razor-thin Senate majority. Conservatives hate him because their hearts are mostly empty, like the Grinch in the beginning and middle of the book. The media doesn’t like him because they cannot fill their day like they did with Trump. This is just speculation, but I bet even the White House chefs don’t like him, because he seems like the kind of motherfucker whose idea of a perfect meal is just plain white rice and a glass of tap water.

We all don’t like the dude. But we also knew that when we elected him.
