Review of Thor: Ragnarok

Kind of a mixed bag. Feels like two different kinds of movies got pasted together at times. This one is going to be divisive based on it wholeheartedly embracing humor alone. I dug it though, despite some serious issues. The characters really did it for me here. Goldblum was delightful as The Grandmaster, Karl Urban is always a blast to see in anything, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie was awesome, and, the big winner for me, was Blanchett as Hela.

I loved that they went whole hog to capture he inane nature of comics, the Jack Kirby visuals, fantastic action, and the fan service nods from Surtur to Fenris to mentioning Throg were all nice touches. That being said, it is a fairly uneven, sometimes sloppy, affair that made me wish we got a more serious venture at times if only to see Blanchett really go at it. A more prolonged flashback to her days with Odin would of been appreciated as well.

The real problem i could NOT ignore was Ruffalo's portrayal of the Hulk which was absolutely terrible. The script is more to blame but it's an undeniably bad depiction in the sense that despite the two years he's been missing you feel no logical reason to any of his behavior. He thoroughly annoyed me in this. Another problem: Metal looking like plastic.
Overall though, a fun outing though markedly flawed.
