Thor: Ragnarok is the third film in the Thor series and the and the 17th film in the marvel cinematic universe, and a lot is going on when it comes to the plot basically Thor finds himself imprisoned on this planet, then ends up fighting the Hulk in a gladiator battle (absolutely not a spoiler its in literally every trailer) and has to find a way to escape this planet to save his home planet Asguard which is on the merge of being destroyed. Now I was generally surprised with how much I enjoyed Thor (2011), and with all the positive reviews pertaining this film I was excited to see it, now I really enjoyed this movie however I wanted to love it. Now let me start with the pros, Hemsworth, and Ruffalo have great chemistry between them and the film also has a great supporting cast of Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Idris Elba, Cate Blanchett, Karl Urban, and Jeff Goldblum, each of them do a great job in their roles. Also I have to say the character of Valkyrie was great and I was glad to see Tessa Thompson in more films because she was great in Creed (2015). Another great aspect to this film was that there are a surprising amount of funny scenes in this film, which is great considering the fact that the first two were on the more serious side. Also the film looks practically stunning in terms of scenery, which is only shocking because its superhero film and they usually don't pay attention to scenery but this one did. And finally I liked how they made us appreciate Bruce Banner more as a man than as the Hulk. Now Thor Ragnarok is not as perfect as some critics are claiming, in fact I found the film to be very slow at times which I sort of understand because there are a lot of characters in the film but it sort of makes for less action sequences. Also the film doesn't spend a lot of time on earth which I personally wasn't a fan but thats just me. There was one point were I was going to give this film 3.5 stars however the third act of the film completely changed my perspective due to how much the film picked up and because of that third act we now have the 4 star rating. However though I personally thought the third act of the film was best, thats were things take a little bit of a dark turn which can come as a con to some. Though I didn't find Thor Ragnorak to be as perfect as some did I still enjoyed it a lot. With Logan, Wonder Woman, Spiderman: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and now Thor Ragnarok all I can say is 2017 has been a great year for superhero films. If your looking for a fun comic book/superhero movie that doesn't take itself too seriously than I highly recommend you see Thor: Ragnarok I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
Best animated movie of 2016 (maybe ever). Hate claymation loved this movie though
Usually not a fan of these types of movies but this movie surprised me. Kubo and The Two Strings was still the better animated movie of 2016. But you know what it was still worth watching much better then Frozen
The sequel to the surprisingly excellent Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) is here. In Kingsman: The Golden Circle the Kingsmen team up with another organization like them in the United States known as the Statesman to defeat a common enemy. Now going into the film I was excited because Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) is one of my favorite movies but usually sequels are a hit or miss for me however knowing that Matthew Vaughn who directed the first film was directing the sequel I came in with high hopes and though the film definitely has its flaws I had a great time watching it. What makes Kingsman: The Golden Circle work is that instead of just rushing into the film to get to the main plot and exciting stuff it actually takes its time so things can be explained better. Another thing I loved about this film is the Statesman organization, usually secondary characters aren't that great especially when compared to a great group like the Kingsman however the Statesman were great they, in fact after seeing the film I don't know who I like better. Also the film has an awesome cast (including one truly awesome cameo) and everyone plays the characters perfectly. The film also has some unexpected betrayal in it and I loved that because you didn't know who to really trust. And I love how the film doesn't sugar coat on the way British and Americans act because it made it funny. Now this film unfortunately is not perfect like the first one, because the sequel used a lot of CGI in its fight sequences as opposed to the first one that didn't. Another thing I wasn't a huge fan of is the fact that it focused a lot on Eggsy's life with his girlfriend which though becomes important in the plot later on, I found some of it kind of unnecessary. Also there wasn't really that much memorable scenes it this one unlike the first one where there was the church scene. And this film also is very unpredictable which can either be a pro and a con in this films case because some of the unpredictable aspects can come off as upsetting. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is a fun film, sure it has its ups and downs but in the end not all films are perfect especially sequels plus it was better than the "Kick Ass" sequel which I personally didn't like (sorry). Kingsman: The Golden Circle is like a summer film that came out in the fall, if your looking for a fun, action comedy film than I recommend it for you, I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
