VOD news 37/22: ‘Pinocchio’, more than wood, sawdust

VOD News brings you the best releases of the week on Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+… And, things as they are, we highlight Pinocchio for being the most remarkable, but…

So we open the season with Disney +, which is certain to release a lot of original and exclusive content, although as a pure and simple premiere, Pinocchio It is the most remarkable, forgive the redundancy. But, beware, because it also reaches the platform Thor: Love and Thunder or other things that may interest you and that are out of the norm, if you are a subscriber, such as the series Gun or the documentary Mike.

Beginning with Pinocchio, this is the live-action movie based on the classic fairy tale character. Directed by Robert Zemeckis (Return to the future, Forrest Gump, Who cheated on roger rabbit?) and stars Tom Hanks in the role of Gepetto… but not even the return of this combo of prestigious and effective veterans seems to save a film that almost all critics describe as rubbish. And be careful, because in many cases they point to the “forced generational refresh” to do it, this is… what you imagine and more. But since I haven’t seen it nor am I going to see it, here’s the highlight of the day.

Thor: Love and Thunder

The second release to highlight on Disney+ for this week is Thor: Love and Thunder, the fourth installment of the Marvel superhero and – as I have seen this one, I say it – the most embarrassing to date. In this case, furthermore, it is not because he prostrated himself before postmo fever, but because everything that worked in Thor: Ragnarök has stopped doing it. Let’s say that Taika Waititi has gone too far and has ended up crossing that fine line that separates comedy from embarrassment, in what is supposed to be an action movie.
