Friday Flicks: Thor Ragnarok
What It's About
If you've been hiding under a rock it's time to come out. Come on, it's ok. Out you come. There's a good boy! Alright! I'm done. So anyway, I'm assuming you know all about the Marvel Universe and their movies. I love how they all fit together, don't you? This one follows Thor as he discovers he has a sister. A sister that was so power hungry and crazy that their father locked her away. But she's free now and back to her old ways of power mad controlling! It's up to Thor to stop her....without his hammer. Eeeep!
I got to see this one opening weekend because my awesome friend Jenni had a spare ticket. Thanks Jenni! I'll be honest. I've only see the first Thor. I know! Sacrilege. But I have seen the Avengers etc so I wasn't completely lost. Now I don't know if I'm just remembering wrong or if they took a different approach to this movie but it was hilarious! Way funnier than it's predecessors. And I don't mean silly little jokes here and there amidst some serious action. I mean a laugh a minute, not taking itself too serious funny. I loved it!
And the story was fun too. I liked watching Thor figure out who he really was without his hammer. I loved all the Marvel cameos and the newcomers were great too. It was such a fun ride! If you're a Marvel fan and a fan of 80s videogames this one will be right up your alley.
My only beef with the movie, the reason it's a four star instead of a five, is I felt it was a bit long. Now if you're loving a movie or book so much that you don't want it to end then length is great. And I was loving this one but it was crowded and hot in the movie theater and enjoyable or not, it had a few unnecessary things that could have been cut in my opinion. Still, it's totally worth the watch and I guarantee you'll laugh your head off. Go see it!

All the superhero movies feel the same to me, but they're usually entertaining enough to make me look up from my book a few times :)ReplyDelete
High praise from a reader!Delete
I'm glad you liked it. That gives me more hope for this film. Did they mess up Valkerie? I'm worried.ReplyDelete
I hope if you see it you like it.Delete
I'm glad you liked it and that you could go with me! Thanks for taking that spare ticket. :) It was fun.ReplyDelete
Thanks for inviting me.Delete
Can't wait to see this one! (I'm a fan of Hemsworth, too, especially when he's Thor.) :DReplyDelete
I look forward to it because Loki's always a good time and if they're making them funnier like the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, then Thor will be more watchable.ReplyDelete
Yes! Exactly. They’re a lot more funny now. This one felt like a Guardians movie.Delete
I'm so glad you liked this! I love pretty much all of the Marvel movies and I've been hearing great things about this movie so I'm excited to watch it. Loki (aka Tom Hiddleston) is one of my favorite characters ever (but I'm also a huge Chris Hemsworth fan!) :) Lovely review, Jenny!ReplyDelete
I think you’ll like this one. Loki gets a lot of screen time.Delete
I love to look at Chris Hemsworth, but I'm just not in to these types of movies. Glad to hear you enjoyed it!ReplyDelete
Yeah, I'm sorry. You'll have to watch his other movies.Delete
