Thor: Ragnarok: Monday, November 6 2017

Thor: Ragnarok is everything it promises to be: lots of fantastic special effects; lots of fighting; lots of action.

The simple storyline, gives the hero a huge, mythological task. Thor, who keeps telling us he is following the path of a hero, must escape from the planet Sakaar in to time to save Asgard, the home of the Gods, from Hela, the Goddess of Death, and Ragnarok, the end of their known world. After many battles along the way, of course he does save Asgard. Straight from the simple male mind, to the welcoming male mind!

Directed by Taika Waititi (42), screenplay by Eric Pearson and written by Craig Kyle (46) and Christopher Yost (44).

The gorgeous Chris Hemsworth does a great job as Thor. I really liked Tom Hiddleston as Loki. Cate Blanchett is fantastic as Hela. Jeff Goldblum is Grandmaster. Mark Ruffalo is Bruce Banner, the Incredible Hulk. Anthony Hopkins plays Odin. We also have Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange. In other words, a fantastic cast, having fun!

The film is great fun, and my little girl enjoyed it. I gather that my Film Group enjoyed it too. We had a lively discussion afterwards in The Lounge at our Cineplex. This entertaining film left us all feeling good.
