"We're the same, you and I. We're just a couple of hotheaded fools."
"Yes, same. Hulk like fire, Thor like water."
"We're both like fire."
"Hulk like raging fire. Thor like smouldering fire."
Yes, Taika, YES!
I loved so much about this film, I'm so happy with how it turned out and I'm so proud of my fellow countryman for making such an awesome film.
My favourite thing about it was all the kiwi-ness to it. I can imagine watching this film in NZ would have been a totally different experience. There were so many moments when just myself and my bf were laughing - all the little kiwi humour Easter eggs, they were so fantastic.
By the time I came out of the cinema, I was smiling from ear to ear, I'd had such a good time.
Visually, the film was stunning - there was so much colour, it was so bright and it perfectly suited the tone of the film. Post-cinema, my bf and I both agreed that there were moments that looked like pieces of art. My favourite bits in particular were the Valkyrie vs Hella scene and the part when Thor gets his thunder and Immigrant song is playing. SO GOOD!
Chris Hemsworth was at his best as this version of Thor. I finally feel like they let him embrace his full dorkiness and it was absolutely fantastic and so bloody entertaining. His comic timing was on point. Taika brought the best out of him.
The chemistry between Thor and Hulk was the best it's been. So many LOL moments. I can't wait to watch them all over again.
The women in this film owned - Cate Blanchett was so fucking badass, I wanted to cheer at the screen every time she was kicking someone's arse. Tessa Thompson was so cool and badass, which made her even cooler, because watching her take the piss out of Thor was fantasic - plus they didn't venture into the romance field, which I feared they might, but they didn't. And Rachel House - you go girl. I love how much New Zealand was in it, I was almost waiting for Julian Dennison to pop up.
The little stage show moment was one of the best scenes in the film. It was so cool watching all the surprise actors pop up, even if they were only in it for a few minutes. It was very entertaining.
Overall, I can say I'm extremely happy with the way Ragnarock turned out. I was highly entertained and I can safely say, so were the rest of the cinema did too! Yayyyyyyy!
