    Thor: Ragnarok

    ★★★★★

    This is actually the first solo Thor movie I've seen so far. Really the only reason I haven't seen the other films is because they haven't interested me that much. I plan on seeing The Dark World at some point, but I don't think I'll ever see the original Thor unless it's for completion reasons.
