Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok ★★★

100-word review: Just because she's played by Cate Blanchett doesn't make Hela any better as villain than Dark World's awfully bland, generic 'big bad' Malekith, and so Ragnarok continues the unfortunate tradition of Thor movies relying entirely on Loki as the fleshed-out second villain to counterbalance the primary one (in the first film this would've been Laufey). Goldblum's and Thompson's characters are consistent highlights in a hit-or-miss MCU comedy that feels distant from the two previous Thor entries (here Thor seems to almost go full Deadpool at times). I do love how director Waititi inserted himself in this though.

Part of my March 2022 Avenger Assemble challenge; 16th out of 22 films.
