Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
Release Date: 03 Nov 2017
Runtime: 139 Minutes

I will just start by saying: I hated this movie more than The Hulk. That is saying something. The whole thing was just horribly put together. I thought it was campy and truly not worth my time.

Of all of the MCU movies, this has the worst music.

It was like 300 meets Flash Gordon.

My MCU rankings after this movie:

  • Guardians of the Galaxy (99.9999)
  • Black Panther (99.2)
  • Ant-Man (98.1)
  • Spider-Man Homecoming (98.0)
  • Iron Man (90.000007)
  • The Avengers (96.0)
  • Captain America: Civil War (92 .0 )
  • Captain America: First Avenger (88.1)
  • Doctor Strange (86 .0 )
  • Captain America: Winter Soldier (85.44)
  • Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 (76.0)
  • Iron Man 3 (70 .0)
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron (67.8)
  • Thor: The Dark World (52 .0)
  • Thor 1 (47.19)
  • Iron Man 2 (43 .0)
  • Hulk (17.9)
  • Thor: Ragnarok (17.8)

How I Rank ‘Em:

0-19 Levels of: Ugh

20-39 Levels of: Meh (aka I cannot reach the remote)

40-59 Levels of: I don’t hate it?

60-85 Levels of: That was solid.

86-100 Levels of: I Loved It!

Thor’s “friend from work” line about The Incredible Hulk was suggested to Chris Hemsworth by a Make-A-Wish child who paid a visit to the set on the day the scene was filmed.

When Thor becomes a gladiator, he has his signature long hair cut short. In ancient Roman history, slaves who were sent to gladiator school and trained as gladiators had their hair cut short.

Best part of the whole movie was his introduction….
Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth in Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
This marks the first time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that The Incredible Hulk was not voiced by Lou Ferrigno, but by Mark Ruffalo. Ferrigno voiced Hulk in The Incredible Hulk (2008), The Avengers (2012), and Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015).
Jeff Goldblum in Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
In the Marvel Comics Universe, when a Being becomes the last of its race, the Being is imbued with immortality, and that Being becomes part of a new race called an Elder of the Universe. That means they can no longer die, and hence are immortal. It is how the Universe protects the last of a kind in the Marvel Comics Universe. The Grandmaster and The Collector are two examples in the Marvel Comics Universe.

Tessa Thompson in Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
Tessa Thompson based her performance as Valkyrie on Sarah Connor from Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991).

After dispatching Loki, Dr. Strange leaves his business card, which reads “177A Bleecker St.” While truly accurate to the comics, and very similar to “221B Baker Street” (the address of Sherlock Holmes, whom Benedict Cumberbatch played on Sherlock (2010)), it is not an Easter egg. It was the real New York City address of Roy Thomas, one of the writers of Dr. Strange.
