Scraps: “Thor: Ragnarok”

 

Director: Taika Waititi
Cinematographer: Javier Aguirresarobe

  • Very, very, very fun.
  • Definitely one of my favorite Marvel films ever, even though I hated Thor as a character and a premise.
  • Visually amazing – from the production design, to the cinematography, just a blast in all directions.
  • “Fun” but doesn’t feel tedious or tacky despite the over the top sensibilities.
  • The world building is ace.
  • The comedic beats are awkward, snappy and genuine in ways that humanized all the characters, even Cate Blancett’s deliciously villainous character, Hela.
  • Appreciated all the physical, vaudeville comedy.
  • All the acting was great! Except maybe Mark Ruffalo who seemed to have had way too much fun to care.
