8. Thor: Love and Thunder

Never did I think we'd be placing a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie on a list of disliked superhero movies, much less a Thor movie. But here we have a rare example of a film that never quite cracked any "worst movies ever" lists, but is still very loudly disliked by its fanbase. Thor: Love and Thunder is an enigma for sure, but it isn't hard to see why it rubbed audiences up the wrong way.

Taika Waititi's comedy is certainly an acquired taste: Inherently funny in small doses but very in-your-face and over-the-top if it lasts much longer. Thor: Ragnarok got the blend just right but even I remember thinking that it could be too much if we got overexposed to it; Love and Thunder unfortunately did just that.

The movie was a tale of two halves. One was a compelling and heartfelt tale of a woman battling cancer and overcoming her illness to save others as the Mighty Thor. The other had screaming goats, talk about orgies, and a criminally underused villain that deserved a far better script. The movie just couldn't get the blend between serious and silly right, and even though it received a mostly solid response upon its release, fans have spoken about their distaste of it in the year after that.

I do enjoy Love and Thunder but the movie was a bit of a misfire that squandered its potential. It couldn't get the balance right, undermining its powerful core narrative and failing to utilize its greatest attributes in favor of its ludicrous tone. Natalie Portman and Christian Bale were scene-stealers but the material just wasn't giving them what they deserved.
