Just returned from Thor Ragnarok. Fitting I was able to see it on Thorsday. I'm not one who's good at reviews and I don't want to spoil anything but I will saw this is nothing like the past Thor movies. It was a visual treat with a LOT of humor and plenty of plot. I likes this better than the previous Thor movies. Stick around for two scenes at the end. Willy Wonka gets a nod. I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
Funniest marvel movie yet. I liked it. Careful on the age of the kids. There is some suggestive humor. Ass-guard and luckily my kid didn’t catch mention of an “orgy”. Didn’t want to have to explain that one.

I really liked the film. The only thing lacking was the villain. Too one directional and unsympathetic. She was like a comet headed for Asgard. Just an unfeeling celestial body. Jeff Goldblum was fantastic.

Didn’t like it much. Very campy and the jokes were beyond corny. Maybe 1 in 3 or 1 in 4 would laugh. Really liked the first Thor film, been downhill ever since. I think I’m done seeing Superhos at the theater. Will wait for discs in the future.
Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?
I loved it but really hate the arsehole who ruined the best line of the movie by putting it in the trailer.

'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with.'

Watched it today and loved it. Breath of fresh air for the character. H's a fantastical character so it lends itself to being more lighthearted. Hard to do a dark, gritty and realistic movie with the god of thunder. They tried it with Superman and failed miserably.
The first Thor worked because it was a funny fish out of water story. The second movie failed because it took itself seriously.
It was very 80s, right down to the unlimited ammo cheat code being enabled. That was a very big 80s trope.
