Thor: Ragnarok

Review: Thor: Ragnarok

Does Thor: Ragnarok Live Up To The Hype?

Thor: Ragnarok is the third Thor movie, directed by Taika Waititi, and in the third phase of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe). Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston reprise their roles as Thor and Loki respectively.

At the start of the film, there is a plot setup regarding Ragnarok; the Norse mythological end to Asgard, the Gods, and existence as a whole. Cate Blanchett plays a playful, yet serious villain in the Goddess of Death, Hela. Tessa Thompson shows a strong yet remorseful Valkyrie, Mark Ruffalo is the long lost Bruce Banner/Hulk, and Idris Elba as the defiant Heimdall. There are a number of cameos in this movie. Do yourself a favor and avoid the internet, as they are wonderfully (read tacky) done. Although IMDB lists many of them, I did not see a specific cameo credited.

After the movie, there are two after credit scenes: One after the splash credits, and another after the credit scroll portion. Listen to the podcast to get my take on the film!

    1. I tend to agree with you on that. There have been stories that Chris Hemsworth pushed to have Thor move into a new direction. Do you think it suits the God of Thunder?

    2. honestly, I think adding the hulk to this movie made it that much more interesting. Not sure about the push (have to do some research).

    3. Hemsworth thought Thor was too serious, brooding, and a bit “dated”. He also thought Thor lacked internal strength, relying too much on Mjölnir.

    4. yeah, I would agree with that. I liked that he couldn’t just bash his way to victory, & losing an eye shows that he is not all powerful & can be hurt. Although he does seem pretty badass now without Mjölnir!

  1. This was the best marvel movie imo and I plan on watching it more than once in theatres…
