Breaking Down Everything From THOR: RAGNAROK

Breaking Down Everything From THOR: RAGNAROK

Thor: Ragnarok ‘n’ rolled into theaters this past weekend, and it’s already a big hit for Marvel. But is it really as good as everyone is saying? We answered that on today’s spoiler-filled Nerdist News Talks Back, along with breaking down everything from the film, and what it could mean if Disney ends up purchasing Fox’s entertainment division.

Host Jessica Chobot, Nerdist editors Dan Casey, Alicia Lutes, Kyle Anderson, along with producer Jesse Gill, formed their own Revengers team today to talk all things Thor. But before that they addressed the breaking, mega-news that Disney has engaged in talks to buy most of 21st Century Fox, and that includes their entertainment properties like X-Men. What’s the good and bad of such a massive acquisition that would condense two big time Hollywood studios? Since Disney already owns Star Wars and Marvel, is it too much for one studio to own?

But otherwise today’s show was basically “All Thors Considered,” starting with what everyone thought of the movie. Did Thor’s character change work? Was the movie as funny as it looked in the trailers? What about the dynamic between Thor and Hulk? Was keeping Bruce Banner stuck as Hulk a good call?

As for the villains, what did everyone think of Cate Blanchett’s Hela? Was she underwhelming? Do we think Loki has really grown as both a brother and character who can be trusted? Did we get enough of Karl Urban’s Skurge? What about Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie?

And did we enjoy the two post-credits scenes? Was the first one a good enough setup for Infinity War? How much did we love getting some extra Goldblum at the end? Were we happy with just two extra scenes, or would we have liked even more?

Finally, what was our favorite moment? (Uh, you mean besides every scene with Korg?) Were there a few too many cameos? Do we hope director Taika Waititi returns to lead another Marvel movie? Where does Ragnarok rank among all films in both the MCU and the three Marvel MCU releases in 2017?
