Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok ★★★★½

Self-aware, goofy and extremely over-the-top. Thor: Ragnarok is a true Taika Waititi film. Having no intention on taking itself too seriously, Waititi does his best to add comedy in almost every scene and it works out just perfectly. The Thor movies have been some of Marvel's weakest links in the MCU, who have mostly suffered from uninteresting characters and subplots on Earth, so it's refreshing to finally see a Thor movie where it's entirety is on an alien planet, Sakaar, and on Asgard. At times feeling like a self referential comedy of itself and MCU movies as a whole. It's over-the-top action is spectacular (especially the arena fight) and it's frequent use of the "Immigrant Song" by Led Zeppelin always makes an action sequence even more exciting.

It's sometimes rare to see a movie where all of the cast gives such incredible and memorable performances. Chris Hemsworth comedic side finally gets to shine and this is arguably his best performance as Thor. The MCU has been doing well with it's villains recently and Cate Blanchett's Hela is no exception. Jeff Goldblum (legend) is wonderful and has some of the best scenes in the movie as does Tessa Thompson. Thor: Ragnarok is a fun little movie that will always have you laughing out loud.
