Thor: Ragnarok

Post by Nspace » Mon Nov 06, 2017 10:00 am

I saw this over the weekend. Not the deepest or most thought provoking movie (go watch Bladerunner:2049 for that), but it might be the most fun Marvel movie to date, even more so than Ant-Man or Guardians of the Galaxy 1. It also has some really dark moments, things that almost felt glossed over at the time but when you look back on it are really kinda shocking. I also want to mention that I really like Cate Blanchett as Hela as she comes across as a very different type of villain than Loki or Thanos.

I recommend it, though I'm not sure seeing it in the theater is necessary. :)

I enjoyed it but thought the comedy kinda interfered with some of the drama. We will have to see if JL can hit the right balance for me in a couple weeks.

An acquaintance who come from New Zealand recently shared this analysis of Ragnarok, with thoughts about the way the director may have let some of their own Maori/Kiwi humor and culture into the way they made the film. Overall, I felt this was a pretty interesting read!

I feel there's an interesting tidbit about specifically Maori humor, too.

I love the director's vampire flick
