I really enjoyed What We Do in the Shadows. I didn't realize until just after the newest installment of Thor came out that it was directed by the same guy. I like Taika Waititi very much, and was interested in what he would do with the franchise. Unfortunately the results were a mixed bag for me. Even watching the previews I saw that this was going to be very different tonally than the other two Thor movies. It looked slick with the sort of 80's music and graphics that I've come to associate with the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. Not what I had come to expect from Thor, but given the formers success I thought it was marketing to reach that same audience. The Thor movies have always been a little darker and more serious than the rest of the MCU. Given the heavily Shakespearean tone of the comics I thought Kenneth Brannagh was a great choice to helm the first movies. But say goodbye to seriousness since it appears that Thor has spent the time since his last film appearance traveling the universe working on his stand-up comedy act.
