I’m so late reviewing the big ones these days! Finally, Thor: Ragnarok.
Thor: Ragnarok (Release Date: November 2017)
Thor is imprisoned on the planet Sakaar, and must race against time to return to Asgard and stop Ragnarök, the destruction of his world, which is at the hands of the powerful and ruthless villain Hela.
Director: Taika Waititi
Rating/ Runtime: PG-13/ 2 hrs 10
This one is very different from the Avenger movies or even the first Thor. It’s kind of quirky, funny and sort of has an 80’s sci-fi vibe. More like Guardian of the Galaxies and I think it worked.
If you know anything about the comics, Thor is supposed to be a funny sort of character but there were a lot of fans who didn’t appreciate how much humor was added to this installment. Personally, I liked it quite a bit. I loved the back and forth between characters and that Thor was a smart-ass. It was nice change from Tony Stark being the resident smart-ass.
As I mentioned, this movie had a very campy feel to it, especially Jeff Goldblume’s role lol but I enjoyed it. Sure it was a bit cheesy at times but it’s a superhero movie and that comes with the package (my humble opinion). Anyway this will tie in nicely with Infinity War and I really look forward to Thor and Star Lord coming together.
I wasn’t in a hurry to watch this one but it was entertaining and a solid film.
