Thor: Ragnarok

{5/5} “Well, I tried to start a revolution, but didn’t print enough pamphlets so hardly anyone turned up.”

Thor: Ragnarok, released in 2017

Hela, Thor’s sister he didn’t know he had, has returned to reclaim the throne — and she’ll destroy any Asgardians in her way to do it. Meanwhile, Thor and Hulk have both been captured and are forced to fight for an audience’s enjoyment on some faraway planet. Loki is also there, although they’re not sure if he will help them. And a Valkyrie is there, but she has given up what she used to fight for.

This is a sequel to Thor: The Dark World.

It’s a terrific Thor story, and it’s also hilarious.

It has many brilliant actors and characters. Chris Hemsworth as Thor embodies bravery and sarcasm. Mark Ruffalo as Banner/Hulk embodies courage. Anthony Hopkins as Odin embodies wisdom. Tom Hiddleston as Loki embodies unpredictability. Idris Elba as Heimdall embodies serenity.

Cate Blanchett as Hera embodies revenge. Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster embodies hedonism.

One of Thor’s fellow captive fighters is Korg, a rock creature who’s extremely funny and who’s voiced by the director.

Benedict Cumberbatch (as Dr. Strange) and Matt Damon have delightful cameos.

Stars Karl Urban and Tessa Thompson. Directed by Taika Waititi (Eagle vs Shark). The music by Mark Mothersbaugh includes fun callbacks to previous movies in the series.

The previous movie in the Marvel universe was Spider-man: Homecoming.
