I have to admit, I was kind of skeptical going in to watch this movie yesterday. While I knew the movie looked beautiful and fun I was afraid that the overall humorous aspect of the film would overwhelm the quality of the film. Luckily Marvel has become the masters of marrying the elements of comedy and great movie making together flawlessly. Thor: Ragnarok is a definite win in the long line of Marvel films that have come out in the past nine years.
Up to this point and time, Thor has always been my least favorite Avenger, and it wasn’t his fault. His two previous movies were horrible and I never took him very seriously. Thor: Ragnarok was really a rebirth of the God of Thunder. Taika Waititi took everything we’ve known about Thor so far and pretty much flushed it down the drain and created an entirely new rendition of the lightning-wielding superhero and it was all for the better.
If you are looking for a complex story full of plot twists and shocking moments like Captain America: Civil War then this is not the movie for you. Thor: Ragnarok is mainly a hodgepodge of comedy, beautiful scenery, and thrilling action, nothing more. The story is slightly predictable, everything happens in the movie timeline like I expected, but that doesn’t keep the film from being one of the best Marvel movies made so far.
So yesterday I went to watch Thor: Ragnarok and I had a marvelous time. One of my favorite parts about going to see a movie in the movie theaters is seeing the trailers. When The Last Jedi trailer came on I watched it in quiet awe. There’s a certain feeling Star Wars has that’s beyond any other movie experience. I’m predicting that The Last Jedi is going to be a very intense movie. Black Panther’s trailer was also remarkable too. The technology, the world, the characters, I mean Marvel is just refusing to back down and make a mediocre movie. Black Panther is going to be an absolutely fantastic film.
The movie itself was spectacular, the atmosphere was fun, and I just simply had a wonderful experience watching Thor: Ragnarok.
When the movie was finished I couldn’t help but take a picture alongside Thor and his buddies.
And then when I had first come into the theater I had seen this incredible poster for The Last Jedi and so there was no way I wasn’t going to take a picture with it.
Isn’t this the coolest movie poster you have ever seen? Oh my goodness, it’s better than the actual official poster for The Last Jedi. And Luke is on both sides of the poster! What is that about? It’s also interesting seeing the sizes of the characters. Captain Phasma is rather large which means it looks like she’s going to have a much bigger role in the film than expected. And Kylo Ren is so cool with his long black cape and his awesome lightsaber. Oh, I could go on and on about how cool this poster is but I’ll just stop there.
All in all, I’m counting down the days until December 15th. I am so excited for this movie!
Well, I hope you enjoyed and I thank you for reading my post. Have a wonderful day.
