[Review] Thor: Ragnarok


Title: Thor: Ragnarok
Release Date: November 3, 2017

This movie was honestly one of the best I’ve seen in a while. It was also the best Thor movie by far. Marvel really knows how to pull out the big guns when they need to, and there was no holding back in this installment. It was the perfect combination of action, humour, violence, and Hulk smashing.
