Director Taika Waititi said that he wanted to showcase Chris Hemsworth's comedic talent in this film: "He's so good and underutilized in that department. He's legitimately one of the funniest things in this film." See more »
When Loki and Thor first meet up on Sakaar, Loki reveals that he's been there for weeks and yet despite this, Loki is somehow completely unaware that Hulk is also on Sakaar as shown by his reaction in the battle arena. This seems incredibly unlikely considering that not only is Hulk a huge celebrity there, but also that Loki had gotten in good graces with the Grandmaster. Surely he would have found out who the champion is. His likeness is even featured atop the Grandmaster's tower. See more »
[Thor is thrown into Muspelheim in chains]
I know what you're thinking. "Oh, no. Thor's in a cage. How did this happen?" Well, sometimes you have to get captured just to get a straight answer out of something. It's a long story. Basically, I'm a bit of a hero. See, I've spent some time on Earth... for the record, I saved the planet a couple of times. Then I went searching through the cosmos for a couple of magic colorful Infinity Stone things... but didn't find any. That's when I ...

Epic Space Adventure which propels Chris Hemsworth's Thor to A-List Status!!!
I just came back from seeing it and this movie is awesome man.
1) the action scenes were top notch in this movie. Thor has never been this epic in the MCU. He does some pretty epic sh*t in this movie and he is definitely not under-powered anymore. Thor in unleashed in this, I love that.
2) Marvel did a damn good job in hiding some spoilers in the trailers.
3) design-wise, the movie is totally beautiful. not a single bad effect in the movie. even the scene that changed from city to field looks better on the actual big screen.
4) the freaking soundtrack. absolutely perfect. Immigrant Song FTW.
5) Hela is totally bad-ass too. powerful, commanding, with just the right amount of scenery-chewing. hell, a lot of characters are so delightfully over-the-top in this.
6) great supporting cast too. Valkyrie owns everything the moment she enters the movie. even Surtur was pretty darn hardcore. and Korg is freaking hysterical. Man I loved Korg!
7) the movie's got a lot of humor. that may be a problem to some ..but, when it's time to take things seriously, the movie does exactly that. specially towards the spectacular third act, when real sh*t is going down, the humor dials back a ton. It is only during the Sakaar portions of the movie where most of the humour is, not without several moments of sincere character interaction of course.
8) I thought what they did with the "Ragnarok" part was kind of genius. this may not be the Winter Soldier of Phase 3 they told us, but it does make some significant changes to the overall MCU, or at least, the Thor section of the MCU.
9) The pacing of the movie was perfect. Plus there wasn't a single scene in which I felt bored.
Overall this was one of Marvel's best films for me. It would definitely be in my top 5 marvel movies along with civil war, winter soldier, guardians of the galaxy and iron man 1. I'll probably rank it at 2nd or 3rd!!!
