Thor Ragnarok

I am Thor, god of thunder, and I say now, not one blade of my locks shall be severed!
29 October 2017

Thor tries to save his planet from destruction at the hands of his evil sister.

How can you hire Cate Blanchett only to have her play a typical 2 dimensional comic book movie villain? This decision reflects the whole attitude of the film. It’s all about lots of colour, a trendy synth soundtrack, plenty of in-jokes, some swanky special effects but nothing to keep you interested.

It’s vapid schlock and not really worth discussing much further. There are worse ways to spend a couple of hours but do yourself a favour and go see The Death of Stalin instead.
