Movie Review: Thor: Ragnarok, directed by Taika Waititi
A comic book re-imagining of Norse mythology. Fun, action, some redemptive purpose. It’s a good fit for modern superhero stories because the Norse (and for that matter Greek, Roman, Celtic and Hindu pantheons) were more superheroes than divinity.
Par for any film she’s in, Cate Blanchett stole every scene she was in. Cameo’s by other Marvel comic heroes.
You’re already gone to the movie? I thought it was a coincidence, but of course you’re ahead. Look forward to a change of pace. Norse Gods – I bought Neil Gaiman’s book – some of it was a bit tedious, some okay. Thanks!
This was just for fun. Pop corn for the brain.
Recommend Joanna Harris’ The Gospel of Loki as closer to traditional mythology, though a decidedly different perspective.
Terry and I were unable to catch a matinee this weekend. We hope to try for one of the nights this week but it all depends.
