Film Review: Thor Ragnarok

The movie Thor Ragnarok left a hilarious taste on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I have always found the Thor movies of the Marvel universe to be very boring. This movie really put the Thor movies back on the map. In the last two movies, Thor has always been a more serious character. Instead of keeping the serious state going, Marvel turned him into a funny character.

One person who stole Thor’s spotlight was the rock man Korg, a warrior held captive in The Grand Master’s arena. Many critics and fans thought this rock alien stole the spotlight from Chris Hemsworth. Even though Korg stole the show, Thor was still a star. Every line that he spoke was hilarious.

Then there was Bruce Banner, or the Hulk if you want to call him by that. He was also a funny addition to the team. It was a great idea to have the Hulk associated in the movie. The main idea of adding the Hulk to the movie was that he wasn’t going to have a stand alone movie of his own. Marvel decided to have Hulk in Thor’s movie so there wouldn’t be any problems with Universal. In my opinion, making Hulk into a Thor Movie was a great idea. Thor and Hulk have always been close together. Putting them into a movie showed how their bond progresses from movie to movie.

The last of the “Revengers” in Thor Ragnarok is Valkyrie. She was a great addition to the movie because, in the Thor comics she was a very big character. She was involved in so much in Thor’s life she could be his sister.

But of course how could we forget Loki. He was another funny character in this movie. Tom Hiddleson has always been a standout attribute to the Marvel Universe. Whether is was being a villain or being a complete good guy until he betrayed Thor. Loki and Thor’s relationship was strong and funny in this movie. Besides Korg stealing the spotlight, Loki and Thor where an amazing duo whether it was telling a joke or fighting along side each other.

My honest opinion of Thor Ragnarok was that it was hilarious but, it could use some more advanced feelings. Thor Ragnarok was a great addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and i hope you go see it.

Film Review: Spider-Man Homecoming

I’ve always been a fan of superhero movies and Spider-Man Homecoming defiantly did not disappoint. It was, yet again, another great Spider-Man movie.

The movie starts off where Captain America: Civil War ended and Peter Parker just wants to be a big time hero and help save the world again. But he keeps waiting and waiting for Tony Stark to call him back and let him fight with the Avengers again. He wants to be more than a a friendly neighborhood superhero. But Stark doesn’t call him. So he goes off on his own, without permission from Tony.

Tom Holland did an amazing job as Spider-Man and in general I really liked how Spider-Man was portrayed in this movie. The movie really brought back the fact that Peter Parker is still just a high school student and really treated him like a teenager which is something, that I had always thought the other Spider-Man movies had been lacking.

I also personally though it was really cool how they tied this movie into Captain America: Civil War. Though I could see how if you hadn’t watched Civil War certain small parts of the movie might had not made as much sense.

The movie overall, was great. It was really funny and full action that kept you at the edge of your seat. I would totally suggest this movie to anyone who has any interest in the world of superheros.
