Thor: Ragnarok, released on November 3rd, 2017, stars Chris Hemsworth as Thor: God of Thunder, Cate Blanchett as Hela: God of Death, Tom Hiddleston as Loki: God of Mischief, Mark Ruffalo as the Incredible Hulk/Bruce Banner, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, and Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster.

This film is directed by Taika Waititi, the director of Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows. It shows. His directing style is one in a million. This movie was definitely the revamp Thor needed. In the past Thor films, audiences were not really entertained and often found themselves bored or confused.

 

 

Thor (2011) has a 77% on Rotten Tomatoes, while Thor: The Dark World sits at a disappointing 66%. This isn’t the case with Thor: Ragnarok. It’s the second best rated MARVEL movie with an impressive 93% just right under Iron Man (2008) (94%) and right above Avengers (2012) (92%).

 

This was the second time I’ve seen this movie, and it didn’t pale in comparison to the first viewing. It was just as good, if not better.

Thor in has past films was dry, sometimes spitting out humor, but other times just being a bland character. In Ragnarok, he’s hilarious, and is self-aware. He‘s kind of a dope. Loki was more accurate to the weasley mischief maker he is in the comics. Hulk is now able to speak more. He speaks like a three-year-old, but he’s hilarious.

I would give Thor: Ragnarok a 9.5 Jeff Goldblums out of 10. It really gave me what I wanted in a Thor movie, and revived my love for Thor and Hulk, the underused Avengers. We hadn’t seen these two since 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, so this was definitely a nice surprise.
