Movie Review by Kristin: THOR: RAGNAROK | #ThorRagnarok #thor @thorofficial

IMG_0855

Helloooooooo, movie lovers!!

I got to see a 3-D screening of THOR: RAGNAROK last night here in Miami, and I have to say . . . this might just take the top spot for me! It’s definitely the most entertaining of the Thor movies.

Now, I might be a bit biased because I love me some Chris Hemsworth, but this movie had the perfect balance of action and comedy that I felt set it apart from the others. I don’t remember the other films being consistently funny throughout the entire two hours, but this one had everyone laughing (in a good way) for a lot of it. The interactions between Thor and Hulk were some of the best moments for me. I also loved the female presence in this one. Cate Blanchett as Hela aka the Goddess of Death, and Tessa Thompson were such bad asses in this movie and it’s nice to see women being represented as such in a genre geared towards boys and men. Women enjoy these characters and films too, so it’s nice to see them being included and represented as strong, powerful beings that can kick ass with the best of them!

The cast was fantastic, and there were even a few surprise appearances thrown in that made it even better. I’m about to throw in a spoiler alert regarding those appearances, so if you don’t want to know, skip through to the synopsis.

SPOILER ALERT: Doctor Strange played a small part in the film, Matt Damon goes uncredited but plays an actor imitating Loki.

 

SYNOPSIS: Imprisoned, the mighty Thor finds himself in a lethal gladiatorial contest against the Hulk, his former ally. Thor must fight for survival and race against time to prevent the all-powerful Hela from destroying his home and the Asgardian civilization.

This is definitely my favorite Thor movie. If you’re contemplating whether or not to see it in 3-D, I say do it! I wear glasses all of the time, so it’s a bit of a hassle having to put those 3-D glasses on top of my own and it distorts the picture just a bit BUT the effects were great and it was still a cool experience. Whether it’s 3-D or not, I strongly suggest seeing this one in the theater. Check it out for yourself and let me know your thoughts on this comedic direction!
