Bald Move Pulp - Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
Jim and A.Ron have seen Thor: Ragnarok and let us be the millionth person to tell you that it is fun and colorful. There isn’t much else there, but, you know, but director Taika Waititi ensured that it’s really fun and really colorful. It asks some big questions about Thor, and Odin, and even the Hulk, but isn’t really interested in the answers. It’s not a bad thing, because it is really, really fun. Cate Blanchett is clearly enjoying being a vampy big bad with a flair for irony and the dramatic, Jeff Goldblum is a delight as an eccentric gladiatorial slave owner. The premise and resolution are quite clever. We just are a little puzzled at some of the over the top early buzz hailing it as the new benchmark for comic book movies.
