      Ragnarok and roll with the best of the Thor films

      I've long been a loyal follower of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, enjoying nearly all of the films and the continuing story they've been weaving for over ten years now. But it seems that out of all their main characters, Thor always gets the short end of the stick. His first movie was perfectly fine, while the sequel, "The Dark World", has been heralded by most fans as one of the weakest/worst movies of all the MCU films (and I kind of tend to agree--it wasn't awful, but certainly forgettable). So when a third installment was announced, the response was initially lukewarm. But as more trailers were unveiled, I got more and more excited, knowing that whatever we were going to get looked FAR better than Thor's previous two outings. And my prediction was right. This is not only Thor's best movie, but easily one of the most entertaining of all the MCU films. Two years after the events of "Age of Ultron", Thor has been unsuccessfully searching for the Infinity Stones, and is imprisoned by the fire demon, Surtur. Surtur reveals that Thor's father, Odin, is no longer on Asgard, and that the realm will soon be destroyed in the prophesied end-of-days, Ragnarök. After defeating Surtur, Thor returns to Asgard to find his brother Loki posing as Odin. Thor forces Loki to help him find their father, and with some help from Doctor Strange, they locate Odin in Norway. Odin then reveals that he's dying, and that his passing will allow his firstborn child, the goddess of death, Hela, to escape from a prison she was sealed in long ago. With Odin's passing, Hela is freed, and she subsequently destroys Thor's hammer Mjolnir, then forces him and Loki out into space to die. But while she sets out to conquer Asgard, unbeknownst to her, Thor and Loki fall through a wormhole and crash land on Sakaar--a garbage planet where they're both captured, and where Thor is taken to serve as a gladiator for the planet's ruler, the Grandmaster. But after discovering his old friend, the Hulk, has also been living on the planet for some time, along with a long lost fellow Asguardian, Thor rallies together his friends and the planet's citizens to overthrow the Grandmaster and find a way off the planet, so that he may return home, defeat Hela, and save Asgard. Anyone who's become bored of Thor's character in his previous two films will be pleasantly surprised here. Gone is the traditional Shakespearian talk, and what we get instead is a fast paced, funny movie that dials the humor up to 11 and, dare I say it, is even funnier than the Guardians of the Galaxy films. Even for a situation as serious as Asgard potentially being destroyed (and with plenty of previously established Asgardians meeting their ends), the movie hits the perfect balance of knowing when to be serious, and when to let the humor and absurdness of certain situations shine. (And to any Led Zeppelin fans, yes, the "Immigrant Song" from the trailers is in the movie, and used to great effect.) About the only criticism I can give is that the plot is incredibly fast paced, particularly towards the start, where a TON of info-dumping is given to explain what happened between "The Dark World" and now, and give backstory to the new characters---thus revealing that many of the previously established lore from the past Thor movies either was a lie, or a cover up. But it's all handled very well and makes total sense (it just goes by fast, so be prepared to pay close attention). Every single character gets their time to shine, and not one person steals the whole movie. Everyone, both hero and villain, is funny and memorable. Hela is having the time of her life destroying everything in her wake; Asgardian newcomer Valkerie has an interesting past (and though as much as I like Jane Foster, Val arguably makes for a better love interest for Thor), and the Hulk finally gets a chance to fully talk and articulate himself, thus leading to the movie not only being about Thor, but also being a small, sly adaption of the famous "Planet Hulk" storyline from the comics. And it all ends with a shocking final battle that does for Thor what "The Winter Soldier" did to Captain America. So to any naysayers of the Thor films, this third installment will definitely be your cup of tea. With a fast, engaging plot, memorable characters, and witty humor, this is the huge kick in the pants that Thor needed.

      Honestly Marvel steelbooks needs better art.

      The steelbook itself needs work. This is why 4 stars. Was disappointing to see that boring back art. Hulk should have been on the back in bright Hulk green to match the front and follow the theme of the movie. I love steelbooks with two different colors on the front and back. Makes the spine pop and draws the eye. The inside art should have been something with Hela and Odin on it. Maybe the art from the dome inside the throne room. How bout Loki or the Valkyrie? Show them some love. I wait to watch movies at home and not in the theater cause I got a nice setup and anxiety. So this movie was a long wait for me. I liked the movie just fine. Its a comic book in movie form and has a lot of comedy. It has the pace of a quirky comic book. It has the art style of a early age comic book. It is NOT like the other two Thor movies which are a more serious and brooding. It is a change of pace and I liked it. Its great on 4k w HDR and the colors are intense. The cgi however is a tad bit off putting cause you can tell when there is green screen which is pretty much every scene. I messed with my tv settings too and I got a Sony Bravia XBR X900E TV. Small things really, nit picky stuff. I appreciated the movie, it was fun I will enjoy watching it again and thats what matters. Im excited for the Infinity War and my Black Panther steelbook!

      The third Thor centered Marvel movie went a little a different way than the previous two. Though there is usually some comedy within these movies, they pushed the often very serious feeling content in a more comedic approach with this one. It's called Ragnarok, but for those who may have read the comics there is also a lot of "Planet Hulk" to it as well. Basic synopsis: Thor and Loki find Odin just before the elder god moves on (dies) which releases Hela his firstborn daughter who proves to be very, very powerful and who has a bit of grudge after being kept in exile for who knows how long. They race back to Asgard, but Loki and Thor get knocked out of the beam and wind up on a planet where there are gladiatorial type games. They run into Hulk who disappeared at end of the 2nd Avengers movie. After things go awry and Thor drags the Hulk, Valkyrie and Loki back to Asgard they fight to save their world from Hela's control. One of my favorite Marvel movies, you could probably enjoy it without having followed the various other movies, but the extra lore might help enjoy it more. Excellent superhero fun.

      Marvel in general does a good to excellent job on all their superhero movies. I love Thor. From childhood reading the comics to now and his treatment in the movies I am still a big fan. However, this movie was less a strict Thor movie and more a lighter hearted general Guardian of the Galaxy or other character type of movie. Why do I say this? Thor is epic!! The scope of his life and stories is supposed to be on the level of Gods!! As a result, I feel a certain weightiness should be evident in all his movies. Humor is great but gags suggesting he's clumsy, or not as strong as a Valkyrie I believe play to if not pander to a "girl power" agenda in Hollywood and the Country in general that does not serve the character as well as possible. I love strong female characters. But in order for a woman to be strong does a man have to be weak or weaker, than he has historically been? Having said the above I enjoyed the film but having Thor screaming in a chair after what amounted to a light show, when he has fought Trolls, Gods, Demons, and other epic individuals, didn't make sense for the character for me. It detracted, for the sake of humor, from what could have been a more epic film. In short, too many attempts at humor, at the expense of the weight of the film and the more gritty/grandeur history of the character.

      So this is Thor now, eh?

      What do you do when a character just doesn't catch on with the public like they have with Iron Man or Captain America? You abandon everything the character is, in the comics, and you make a self-aware spoof comedy to "reboot" him for the general movie watcher. I avoided this movie while it was in theaters because it just annoyed me that Marvel was just turning this character into a joke. Still... I watched it when it came out on 4k. I watched it having put away any desire to see Thor and just watched it when the desire to see a comedy hit me. When I went into the movie that way, I actually enjoyed it. I "forced myself" to ignore that, not only was Thor a joke now, but so was the Hulk. Two of the most powerful characters in the Marvel universe were just comedic goofs now. Anyway... as a comedy/spoof movie, it's really funny. Jeff Goldblum is wonderful in every way and Chris Hemsworth is really funny as this new, pathetic, stupid, goofball caricature of Thor. So... 3 stars because I laughed. 3 stars because Marvel is lame for doing this to Thor.

      One Hela Good Time!

      My favorite of Thor movie after two previous bloated entries. Taking a nod from Guardians of the Galaxy and Deadpool, Ragnarok is a much more fun adventure. You can tell Chris Hemsworth had a good time making this movie just by his smile alone. .This time Thor and Loki battle against their long lost (and evil) sister, Hela, played by the fabulous Cate Blanchett. Yes, she can play a great villain, but she was somewhat underused. Her scenes in Asgard are a lot less interesting than Thor's scenes in Sakaar. Sakaar is where the movie shines, giving the film a trippier more colorful element the series needed. Funky setpieces and Jeff Goldblum as The Grandmaster add to the movie's personality. Of course, given the comedic tone of this installment, some of the jokes don't land, but it is fun to watch. However, everything that occurred is all but negated by the events in Avengers: Infinity War. A tad unfortunate, but still a fun ride while it lasted.

      Entertaining....but not a Thor movie

      Entertaining, but not a Thor movie. I know some of movie goers may not like what I am going to say about this movie, let me tell you why. A movie should be judge on its own merits, not comparing it with other movies before it. Thor movies have a different and unique story telling than the other Marvel stories and superheroes. What we have here is a comedy patterned after Guardians of the Galaxy style. It is funny with many one liners. But most of these one liners do not belong in some seens and out of place. Too much of it. Asgard is destroyed, the warrior three, Volstagg, Fandral and Hogan are killed. What happened to Sif? Jane foster is gone. She dumped Thor or he dumped her. Too bad, a love story between them should have develop and explored longer. It would have been a better story line to continue. And what about Hela. In Norse Mythology, she was not Thors' sister or Odins' daughter, but the daughter of Loki. Did anyone bother looking into this? I guess not. Anyway, entertaining and funny it is. Thor will return in Avengers: Infinity, but most likely there will be nomore Thor movies forthcoming as we know it. Sad

      Great action but too much comedy-disappointing

      When the critics hail a movie all around, be careful. Critics don't know comics, and they blew the call on this one. The latest Thor has a lot of good action and visuals, but it tries way too hard to be funny. It is at times, but there's a lot of inappropriate comedic moments that make this go around a little too stupid rather than the usual Marvel fun. The character Korg is a great example. Funny at first, but the only purpose he serves is to serve up one liners and why? Don't think we need a laugh when an entire world is destroyed. Kinda takes away from the impact it's supposed to have on the characters and the story. Enough with the jokes already-we know this isn't the sometimes too serious DC world. Ruined what could have been a terrific movie. So, #3 ends up like Iron Man 3; very disappointing and a critics darling-critics are stupid. The fight between Thor and Hulk is worth the watch, however, as are the visuals. 4K is the way to go with this one.
