MOVIE REVIEW: Thor:Ragnarok" is great!

"Thor:Ragnarok" is great! Of course, it has some terrific action scenes but it also has humor. The occasional jokes reminded me of "Guardians of the Galaxy". Apparently, about three-quarters of the script was improvised. It was to keep the cast in a loose and collaborative mood. They do it very well.

The acting is as good as it always is. Anthony Hopkins, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tessa Thompson, Jeff Goldblum, Idris Elba and Tom Hiddleston are all excellent. Cate Blanchett, however, as Hela is fantastic as the first main female villain in the Marvel Universe.

The story deals with Thor being captured by Valkyrie, played by Thompson and sold to Grandmaster played by Goldblum. You've seen in the trailers he has to fight the Hulk (who actually has lines to be said by Ruffalo). He then has to go to Asgard which is being targeted by Hela Goddess of Death, Thor and Loki's sister.

Listen to the music. You can hear an instrumental version of "Pure Imagination" from "Willie Wonka & the Chocolate Factory". Also, keep your eyes open for some great cameos. Don't forget to stay through the credits, after all this is a Marvel movie.

So go. Have fun. Eat popcorn.
