Thor: Ragnarok review

Thor Ragnarok posterLet me start by saying that I may be one of the few people that enjoyed Thor: The Dark World. No, I do not think it is a very good movie, but I liked the interplay between Thor and Loki. The supporting characters, like Jane and Darcy, were fun to have around. The movies had a message about improving yourself and being worthy of the great honor that has been handed down to you. And they were not bad movies. Both Thor and Thor: The Dark World were positively reviewed. But, Marvel decided to director Taika Waititi and writers Eric Pearson, Craig Kyle and Chris Yost change things up with Thor: Ragnarok. While I did enjoy the movie, I am not completely on board with all the changes. Major spoilers below.  (more…)

Review: “Justice League”

Some minor and mild spoilers below.

I watched this movie as a fan. I’m by no means a comic book historian or expert; I’m only read maybe 20 issues of anything. I know most of the back stories of the major protagonists and a little bit of Steppenwolf’s history. So, you won’t see any grumbling about how this character wasn’t like the books or how Steppenwolf was apparently different from his comic incarnation. I watched the movie as a fan.

What I watched was a very entertaining, pretty good movie.
