Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
5 Stars out of 5



Not only is Thor: Ragnarok the best Thor movie yet, it's quite possibly my favorite entry in the MCU. Definitely in my Top 3. I think Spider-Man Homecoming is still my all time fave, but Ragnarok is right up there as pure entertainment from start to finish. This is really unlike anything I've seen from any of the other MCU flicks as far as visual style and tone. Stylistically this felt like a movie that was inspired and came direct from all things 80's with its color scheme which I absolutely love. But it was the tone that kind of threw me for a loop. They were really pushing the jokes here....HARD. There was no two ways about it. They were going for laugh out loud moments and they succeeded in Spades. It's not a typical "comedy" that you would expect....but it sure felt like one. There were so many jokes that it was hard to keep up with. This is a movie worth going back for repeat viewings just to get all the things I know I missed the first time around.

Chris Hemsworth is his cool self as Thor and was damn funny. But it was the addition of other characters that really made me take notice. Jeff Goldbum as Grandmaster was vintage Goldblum. Tessa Thompson as Scrapper was a nice addition as well. But Cate Blanchett as Hela is possibly the best Villain ever in the MCU. Yes, she gets "destroyed" at the end. But I fully expect her to pop back up down the road in the future. This is Comics after all. And daaaaamn does Cate look smoking HOT!! But the star of the movie is of course The Hulk. Getting a Hulk that actually carries on conversations in full is what I have been waiting for for years and it delivers in a BIG way. Second best character in the movie is without a doubt Korg. A beast....with a voice like that was and is f*cking priceless!! Highly recommend this as a Buy.
