Thor Ragnarok: Fresh but Still Familiar (For the Good and Bad)

Hey everyone, so let’s Talk Thor! By the way, this is not a review…Just a talk:

I saw the movie yesterday and I didn’t want to write about it right when I got home because I was sprung off the sugar-like high of being in a theater full of fans. I will say I thoroughly enjoyed Thor and thought it was incredibly funny. Normally all the jokes that were put in Civil War, Avengers 2 and so on never hit with me. More often than not I would recognize that a joke was made but then just pray they moved pass it, which they usually do.Even Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which is supposedly Marvel’s “funny, funny guy” had a lot more misses than hits for me. Thank goodness people like Bautista made a lot of his comedy feel just organically awkward.

It wouldn’t be an understatement to say that this is one of my most anticipated movies of the year. For those who may not know, DeadPool was a project that Ryan Reynolds(playing Deadpool himself) has been trying to get green-lit for a long time. The movie stars Wade Wilson, a mercenary with a terrible sense of humor(terrible that it’s offensive but still funny) who is borderline insane, but has a sliver of humanity left in him. This humanity is enhanced when he meets a lovely stripper… prostitute….waitress? I’m not sure, she was either two or all three of those– moving on — but it turns out she is just as messed up as he is and they hit it off. They become an item until Wade is hit with cancer from the blindside. Now Wade rather not drag his girl down with him, so as he’s about to ditch his beloved he gets an invitation to not only cure him but give him super powers. Well with a 2-for-1 deal that would make Chilli’s blush, how can he say no? Continue reading “DeadPool Movie Review: If only This Came Sooner”
