Thor: Ragnarok [2017]

‘Ragnarok’ is the third of the Thor movies and was directed by Taika Waititi. This movie follows the adventures of the God of Thunder who has to find a way to get out of another world, where he is trapped, to stop the prophecy of ‘Ragnarok’ from happening and to beat the Goddess of Death, Hela.

In general, I really love Thor because he is a Viking God and I am obsessed with Vikings and Northern mythology. I really enjoyed this film however I must admit that it is a typical Hollywood commercial film.

Starting with the story, the plot is very basic and typical; bad person wants to invade the world [Thord’s world], Thor has to stop her but goes through several obstacles to do that. The reason why I found this film pretty enjoyable is because it is VERY funny, there are a lot of hilarious moments.

Moreover, Loki and Thor are an amazing duo, as usual, I love them together. The two actors have an amazing chemistry, and they know how to convey their emotions. I also think that Cate Blanchett is amazing as the Goddess of Death, Hela. I love her as an actress and she definitely knows how to pull off an evil character.

Visually, the movie is very impressive with the 3D effects which are meant to keep you at the edge of your seat and meant to blow you away.

Even though it is pretty cliché, I liked the rock music that they used in some scenes, it made the whole movie more fun and exciting.

In conclusion, if you are looking for an entertaining and funny movie with crazy visual effects, ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ is the movie to watch. But if you are looking for an original superhero film, it is definitely not for you.

That’s it for today. Don’t forget to give this review a ‘like’ and to follow my blog, if you’ve enjoyed reading it.

    Glad you saw it. Not bad is it. The Jeff Goldblum character reminded me very much of David Bowie.

    Jeff Goodblum didn’t grab you? He really was havin a riot. Cate Blanchett was amazing too yeah. Makes it look so fun and effortless. A fun popcorn movie but yeah the story wasn’t too original.

    I thought this was definitely the best Thor movie to date. I really had a lot of fun with it, and that’s pretty much the correct term for it: fun 😀 Great review 😀

    It’s great to hear that this film is funny because the previous Thor films massively lacked in humour.. great review as always!! Xx

    I wouldn’t necessarily agree that Thor is a typical Hollywood blockbuster, as the dialogue was about 80% improvised according to Taika Waititi. I think it’s a lot more lighthearted and less serious than most action flicks and that’s what I loved about it! I definitely shared your love of the movie’s sense of humour though, definitely one of the funniest films I’ve seen in the last few years 🙂 As always, it’s a great pleasure to see opposing points of view to my own when it comes to movies (and media of all sorts). It keeps me interested in talking about it! 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Even if the dialogue is improvised, it’s still a commercial film! But a commercial film can be good. Look at Tim Burton films, they are commercials but they are freaking amazing. Yes very true and thank you for sharing your opinion ☺️

        I definitely agree it’s a commercial film, I just wouldn’t say it’s cliched. I enjoyed moments that I feel wouldn’t appear normally like the Valkyrie being constantly drunk or Loki getting really excited when Thor is beaten up by Hulk, and that made it stand out for me. I would say that Tim Burton films often (not always) break the cliche in small ways too. They are definitely commercial, but they don’t fully conform. I’d be very interested to know your thought! 🙂

          Yes very true! Tim Burton knows how to make a good and original commercial films. I don’t totally agree about thor but you are somewhat right!! Thanks for sharing ☺️☺️☺️ i love talking about films!!
