"Thor: Ragnarok" Review

I finally watched Thor: Ragnarok. It's kinda all over the place--a weird mix of loud, Marvel-quippy, neon-colored Guardians of the Galaxy sci-fi, mythological fantasy, and family drama. It's still good, overall, despite the disjointed "apocalyptic but FUN" plot, but mostly because of the collection of enjoyable moments and characters (similar to Justice League being a huge mess redeemed only by the characters and their individual moments).

Hulk/Banner are used to great effect, Valkyrie lives up to the hype, space Jeff Goldblum is Jeff Goldblum in space, and the villain Hela had the potential to be so much more because Cate Blanchett is great in all her scenes but underutilized since much of the movie is focused elsewhere or played for laughs. I don't think it's necessary to watch Thor 3 before Avengers: Infinity War, but I still recommend it for fun.

Now I just need to see Black Panther
