DVD Wholesale Quick Overview:
One can definitely see how Thor’s time on Earth and around the genious comic timing of Tony Stark, has introduced Thor to sarcasm and quick witted confidence. I have watched the 3rd installment several times over and still find myself laughing out loud throughout the entire movie as if it were the first time. I enjoy the subtle, dry, sometimes dark humor that runs throughout the film, while still getting goosebumps during the more serious events, fight scenes, serios character interaction, etc. I believe Loki’ s character, while still invoking his mischievous character at times, has evolved greatly, with some forward thinking and control from Thor as he no longer falls prey to Loki’s tricks so easily. Thor vs. Hulk, instant classic character interaction. As Hulk has developed conversational skills just enough above the expected “SMASH” gives greater depth to his character and interaction amongst the others, Mark Ruffalo does a great job at portraying the duality of Hulk’ s constant internal struggle. Hela portrays a formidable opponent. Korg rocks, literally. Definitely a character I hope to see more of even if Tails doesn’t direct again, however he makes a great tribute to the comic book artistry, Sakaar, including allusions to Planet Hulk, and the Tournament of Champions. While I haven’t been the biggest fan of Jeff Goldblum lately, he does pull of the role of the Grandmaster well. Only possible complaints include the very fast pace of the movie, possibility of greater character development. Outtakes are funny and extras interesting, however, maybe too much emphasis on the Grandmaster. However definitely worth the purchase, super funny, Led Zepplin’s “Immigrant Song” was a great touch and I hope for more great music in future movies. Potential spoiler…One thing was a little strange at the end of the film…
During the credits,
…how was Heimdal unable to see the massive ship of Thanos approaching the Asguardian Vessel? I mean if he can see everything in the universe, one would assume he would have noticed such a massive ship approaching. Also the arrival of the vessel does not bode well for the Asguardian Vessel and it’s passengers, likely to unfold in “Infinity Wars”, probably in a very negative opening battle scene.
P.S. If you hate spoilers as I do, especially negative ones, avoid future scenes on you tube.

If you like your superhero adventures liberally laced with humor, you’re going to love “Thor: Ragnarok.”
In it, the God of Thunder is trying to save Asgard from destruction while, at the same time, dealing with two siblings (Loki and Hela) who are – to say the least – not terribly well balanced. There’s plenty of action in this movie, but also a lot of funny dialogue to even out the high-adrenaline moments.
The special effects are well done, a hallmark of Marvel films, and the direction is smooth. The writing is above par, though there are moments that drag a little here and there.
One special note: This movie shows once again just how very talented actor Karl Urban really is. As a corrupt Asgardian, he brings just the right amount of sleaze to his role in this film. Compare that with his performances as the straight arrow CIA agent in RED and as Dr. Leonard McCoy in the Star Trek franchise and you can clearly see that he is one of Hollywood’s finest character actors.
A very good movie which, though not a classic, is fun to watch.
