Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok ★★★½

”You’re officially pardoned. From life.”

One pegasus battle (that isn’t a brief flashback) short of being great, but those first eight minutes of Thor & Mjölner doing their own take of the God of War games to Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song, followed by a dragon chasing them through a seedy part of Fantasia, has got to be one of the best arguments ever for cinema’s continued right to be made. Because in those rare, beautiful moments, it’s fuckin’ prospering.

And then I haven’t even gotten to the thespian contributions of Grandmaster Jeff Worth-his-weight-in-24-carat-Goldblum, a.k.a. the only reason why Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom won’t be the total disaster and waste of money that it otherwise appears to be.
