Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

This movie was hilarious. I enjoy the funnier Marvel movies more than the serious Marvel movies. In particular, I enjoyed Iron Man (2008), Ant-Man, and Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017).

This movie had some epic battles. 9:41PM PT

Thor (Chris Hemsworth)

I had low expectations coming into this movie and in the end I enjoyed it.

[20180203 Edit]

I decided to watch this movie again today and I was reminded that the film was hilarious. This film most definitely belongs in the top three among humorous Marvel movies belonging to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Hela (Cate Blanchett)

What's great is that the film also boasts satisfying action scenes. Off the top of my head, there's one at the beginning with Thor, one with Hela on Asgard, a battle between Thor and Hulk, an escape/chase sequence, and the grand final battle.

Oddly enough, I previously forgot to recommend the movie. If you're into action films, then this movie has the ingredients of a great one and I'd just about guarantee you'd enjoy it. As a remark, don't worry if you haven't seen any of the other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, because the film's story can essentially stand on its own. There are, however, references and connections to past and future MCU films for those who have seen them.

On 20181007, Netflix determined the movie for me as a 99% match. I decided to give the movie a thumbs up.

My dad came over today and so I put Thor: Ragnorok on television for him.

Loki (Tom Hiddleston)

One thing I wondered during this viewing was how Helena was able to stop and break Thor's hammer.

On 20190418, Netflix determined the movie for me as a 97% match.

Instant Comments:
1: Thor references looking for the Infinity Stones.
2: So many jokes in the opening scene. 1) Him talking to the skeleton. 2) Son of a... bitch. 3) Rotating. (x2)
4: Smile. The dragon's eye rolls up towards the girls.
1: Lol. Matt Damon.
2: "Father." "Oh shit."
1: Hmm. Loki... I forgot how the other Thor movie ended. [I believe I was referring to the second movie, and I actually didn't see the second movie.]
1: Repeats one of the credit scenes in Doctor Strange.

Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson)

2: Hehe. Strange 1, Loki 0. ("Alright, bye bye.")
1: I didn't realize the portal under Loki's feet was clearly created by Strange.
4: haha. I didn't remember her drunk falling off.
4: oh, a soldier actually managed to drive a spear through her.
2: Hela may be a villain, but that fight sequence (Hela vs. soldiers) was a joy to watch. Hela is a badass.
1: Nice little scene. [20181007: This comment probably refers to the fight sequence with Hela.]
4: oh, it showed someone pulled out the sword [20211105: actually, for those familiar, it's pretty clear that it's Heimdall who pulls out the Bifrost sword, and in the scene before it gets pulled out, he's shown climbing on the rocks outside of the area]
4: they use the music from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory [20211105: "Pure Imagination"; it begins after the speaker says "The answer is Sakkar."].
2: Ha. "I am the God of Thunder!" [with sparkles coming out, and no thunder sound]
4: how was Loki already there for weeks before Thor? [20211105: The Grandmaster actually says soon after that time works different on Sakkar. So since Loki popped out of the Bifrost before Thor, he's already spent weeks on Sakkar] 2: Ouch. "Officially pardoned... from life."
2, 4: Hela comments "Smaller than I thought it would be." and @tesseract "That's not bad."
2: Hehe. Stan Lee cameo. He cuts Thor's hair.
2, 4: [4: hahahahaha] "Yes! That's how it feels!" - Loki in reference to when he was tossed back and forth by Hulk (in the Avengers).
2: Meh. Cheated out of a win.

Thor with his haircut

2: Hahaha. Fire. Water. Raging fire. (Conversation)
2, 4: [4: "What happened to your hair?"] "Some creepy old man cut it off." [4: "It looks good."]
2: Ha. Banner is "strongest Avenger." Compared to all of Thor's failed voice access codes. Speaking of which, what does "point break" mean?
2: "Did I win?" "No, I won, easily." "Doesn't sound right."
1: Thor talks with Banner, "I prefer you." 2: Opposite of what he told Hulk.
1: Ha. Conversation between Loki and Valkyrie [20211105: maybe I meant to write Banner and Valkyrie]
4: 7 PhD's vs 0 PhDs ["How many PhDs does Hulk have? Zero. How many PhDs does Banner have? Seven."]
4: Haha. "Use one of your PhDs"
4: Oh, I forgot how this is how Thor lost his eye.
2: "Are you, Thor, the God of Hammers?"
2: It has a nice effect when lightning only comes out of one eye.
2: Oh, it's "Des" and "Troy".

Hulk (Mark Ruffalo)

1: Loki must have stolen the cube.
1: Speaking of which, why are those treasures not locked up more securely?

2: After the end title credits. "I feel like everything will turn out fine." Uh-oh.
2: Haha. After credits: Grandmaster tries and talks his way out of a sticky situation.
2: "Thor will return Avengers: Infinity War"
