    Ronnie BoDean

    ★★★★

    I'm used to seeing Wes Studi in stoic and brooding roles so Ronnie BoDean was a surprising, but welcome, bout of comedy. Ronnie's attempts to function as an adult and feed children are hysterical.

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I was ready to give up on Luce. There was a fascinating story with an obvious-not-so-obvious allegory buried underneath a severe lack of energy but I was reeled back in by the ambiguity, both morally and spiritually, that Kelvin Harrison Jr. gives to the title character.

    Octavia Spencer slays.

    Thor

    If nothing else, I think the humour of Thor is really underrated amongst the plague that exists in the Marvel Cinematic Universe: quipping. The humour in this, which is helped out a lot by Thor's fish-out-of water predicament, is really subtle and understated. For example, Thor smashing a mug and shouting "ANOTHER!" is hilarious because he knows this to be a sign of respect and gratefulness for sampling the wonders of the universe, but we Earth people don't like noise and outsiders.
