Jeff Goldblum

“Jurassic World” was a success at the box office and with fans, but if there was one complaint, it was that the storyline was pretty similar to the first movie. Similar, but missing one crucial element — the sometimes shirtless stammering of everyone’s…

There seems to have been a hiccup with the “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” trailer, perhaps a slightly embarrassing one. The ‘Fallen Kingdom’ trailer was supposed to arrive last week, but when Marvel suddenly announced he “Avengers: Infini…

Created by Stan Lee & Jack Kirby, Thor first appeared in 1962’s comic Journey Into Mystery #83, a sci-fi anthology published by Marvel Comics. Based on the Norse deity of the same name, Thor is the God of Thunder and possesses Mjolnir, an enchanted hammer. A year later, Thor was included in The Avengers #1 as a founding member of the team, and the character has since appeared in every subsequent volume of the series. As a result, Thor has become one of Marvel’s most popular and enduring superheroes, featured in countless comics, animated series, video games, and live-action films. Played by Chris Hemsworth, Thor has appeared in five Marvel Cinematic Universe movies – including Thor, The Avengers, Thor: The Dark World, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and a cameo at the end of Doctor Strange. His latest cinematic outing, Thor: Ragnarok, looks to set a new standard for not just the Thor series, but the rest of the MCU as …

I am largely indifferent to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I haven’t seen “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2” or “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” and I’m in no rush to do so. I could care less about Infinity Stones, and those Stan Lee cameos make me cringe…

Being Taika Waititi is a pretty good thing these days. The New Zealand filmmaker, writer, actor and director has transformed the “Thor” franchise into something special with the latest installment, “Thor: Ragnarok.” The Marvel S…

By all indications, Jeff Goldblum is at full Jeff Goldblum-iness in the upcoming Marvel Studios film, “Thor: Ragnarok.” As the Grandmaster, Goldblum is decked out in the finest sci-fi clothing, with a funny hair style and some face paint to pull it all…

If you want to know how strong the goodwill that Wes Anderson carries around is, all you have to do is look at the absolutely great and kinda bonkers cast for his new movie, “Isle Of Dogs.” In no particular order, F. Murray Abraham, Bob Balaban, Bryan Cranston, Greta Gerwig, Jeff Goldblum, Akira Ito, Scarlett Johansson, Harvey Keitel, Bill Murray, Kunichi Nomura, Edward Norton, Yoko Ono, Koyu Rankin, Liev Schreiber, Tilda Swinton, Akira Takayama and Frank Wood, all lend their voices to what is hopefully another winning picture from the filmmaker.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe have maintained a pretty consistent level of quality on the whole. Even the worst of their films — “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Age Of Ultron,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Ant-Man” — have elements to recommend them, and never sink as low as an “X-Men: Apocalypse” or “Suicide Squad.” But on the flipside, even the best of their films haven’t really reached genuine greatness in the way that, say, “Spider-Man 2” or “The Dark Knight” managed.

With the exception of James Gunn and the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies, it’s feeling more and more like Marvel, as a corporation, is itself the auteur behind their MCU films. Irrespective of director — and Marvel has had their share of otherwise distinctive filmmakers (Jon WattsKenneth BranaghShane Black) — each film is distinctly “Marvel,” with the filmmakers barely leaving a trace of their own character on the work.  Continue reading New Trailer For Marvel’s ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Brings The Noise at The Playlist.
