Greetings ladies and gentelnerds, and welcome back to “WEEKEND MOVIE REVIEWS!” Todays movie?.. Seriously? Do you have to ask?
THE STORY: “Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization”
The plot. For what it is, and how it is presented, is great! Its simple and straight forward. Its not the strongest plot, in the sense of depth. But it’s a very entertaining story.
The cast was on point. Everyone was clearly enjoying themselves and their roles and how they were playing them. Chris Hemsworth
.. I will say… Is on the level of Hugh Jackman. I can not see anyone else as Thor. Although Jane Foster Thor wouldnt be a problem for me.. But no one else can be Thor and he should play this role until the end of time.
Tom Hiddelston’s Loki was, of course, perfection. Although he didnt have much to do.
Chewed the scenery every chance she had. Although not given a whole lot to do. She still made every scene count. She portrayed Hela Wonderfully.
Jeff Goldblum’s The Grandmaster..
What can i say?.. Are we sure he wasnt just playing a spaced out version of himself? It was brilliant. He was such a delight to have on screen and in this universe. I cant wait to see Him and Del Toro together as The Collector and Grandmaster respectively.
Tessa Thompson’s Valkyire
A breath of fresh air. Its nice to have another female ass kicker in the MCU. I want more of her.
Mark Ruffelo’s HULK!
This.. THIS! Is the Hulk I’ve been waiting for! I loved every bit of this hulk! He touched my heart in such a way.. It was perfect! This is the hulk i was talking about wayy back when i wrote this article 👇
I loved what they did with The Hulk and Mark’s performance was fantastic. I cant wait for whats to come.
The biggest surprise out of this movie tho..
Director Taika Waititi’s performance as.. KORG
A giant Rock monster with the voice of the sweetest New Zealand man. “Hey Man!” “Hey New Doug” some of my most favorite lines. I’ve never loved Korg so much. He stole the show for me.
THE POSITIVES: Great cast. Great characters. Good story. So much fun. The comedy was.. Perfect. So funny. Honestly, a very fun movie. The first Thor film is one of My favorites in the whole MCU.. Thor: Ragnarok has officially taken the place in front of that. The Kirby inspired universe was beautiful. The twist toward the end was.. Surprising to say the least. (I wont spoil that)
THE NEGATIVES: This Could be considered a spoiler.. But i must voice my opinion on this tho..
Hela.. Is NOT! The first born of Odin! She is not Thor and Loki’s sister.. That change to her character was completely unnecessary. So ridiculas. Hela was a great character in the movie. A good villain. Not given enough time.. At all.. She almost felt pointless. All of that power and it felt a little waisted. THIS… Is what they literally did with Hela..
It was a tad bit disappointing. Cate’s performance was Hela’s saving grace. They didnt give her enough screen time. I blame the tight run time. Unless thier saving her for future projects. But it was a bit of a waste. The only other negative i can think of, is the lack of emotional gravity at certain points. (SPOILER) ppl die in this movie.. Important ppl… And there is no emotional connection to it at all. Its boom. Boom. Boom. Dead, dead, dead, moving on! It didnt take me out of the movie at all. But it was noticable enough for me to be like.. Eh! Thats not nice.
OVERALL: Best Thor since the first one. Best Marvel film since.. Civil War.(?) Best Third Instalment of a series.. Since Civil War. (Maybe I’ll do an actual ranking for these movies soon)
THOR: RAGNAROK is a wonderful movie. Fun. Funny, and action packed. A definite Must See for any and all fans! I give THOR:RAGNAROK A score of 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 8 out of 10. Just because its so much Fun.
