We are both 60+ seniors and we both enjoyed the movie immensely

I took my wife to see this and she is not a comic book fan AT ALL! We are both 60+ seniors and we both enjoyed the movie immensely. I'm grew up on the "Silver Age" of comics, mostly DC with the occasional Spidey, Submariner, Hulk, Iron Man, & THOR.. WOR, Channel 9 in New York used to run a Marvel series back in the late 60's and I loved 'em (You can watch them on YouTube). As a matter of fact this was the show that created the great Spidey theme song that even The Ramones covered. "Spider-Man, Spider-Man, does whatever a spider can..." is a tune that I still sing to this day. Getting back to the subject at hand - "Thor: Ragnarock". Chris Hemsworth is charming and extremely likeable and that is what makes this movie work so well. It's a special something that even Downey Jr. doesn't have. While RDJ is likeable, his charm seems to be slightly forced. It’s not as comforting as Hemsworth's charm seems to be. I'm a hetero through & through yet I have to admit to having a wee bit of a bro-mance with CH. As a child of the 60's & 70's I prefer Hemsworth's Thor with the long locks. I mean when you think of Thor, you think of the Hammer and the long blonde, Scandanavian locks but he's so handsome he could have a freakin' Mohawk and he would look amazing.
I'm not a huge Mark Ruffalo fan and while he has done a good job with his run of the Hulk character, when he is in the David Banner "mode" (for lack of a better term) is cerrainly the weak link of all the main character. Though it's in the Hulk form where he really shines. The one and only unique Jeff Goldblum is as quirky and charming as always - even whilst playing a villain. As usual Tom Hiddleston's Loki is frustrating. Though, this is not a knock on Hiddleston - on the contrary. I say frustrating only because of his likeability as an person makes you wishing he was always one of thd "good guys". I don't want to add spoilers so that's all that I'll say about Loki. Idris Elba as usual is magnificent as is Cate Blanchett, who is almost unrecognizable as Hela. She's the actor that Streep use to be. Tessa Thompson who I became of aware of in "Creed" where her quiet sensuality almost stole that movie was another bright spot in a movie that had many.
What really pushed this movie to the top 5 of my favorite super hero of all-time - ironically - was the COMEDY! Yes, I said comedy. I went to see this weeks after it had hit the theatres so there was my wife, myself, & two guys in the that was if! Well the four of us were belly laughing throughout the entire movie. Even during most of the many action scenes. Laughter is what will always come to mind when I think of "Thor: Ragnarock", knee-slapping laughter.

Huge disappointment.
Verified purchase
They diminished the Avengers franchise for me with this one.In the previous years of Avengers movies we were entertained by the ongoing evolution of stellar special effects combined with well written drama.There was great emphasis placed on creating a mood of seriousness and sense of danger and peril for the Avengers.A little comedy sprinkled here and there was ok and it really didnt hurt the over all sense of drama.But Ragnarock is void of the drama and sense of excitement and seriousness that made the Avenger franchise so great.While stellar special effects are in great supply in Ragnarock the drama,the tension and edge of your seat excitement is not.The movie has two story lines,one makes sense and the other
does'nt.The flick moves from one liner gaffes to slapstick keystone cop type humor.One minute Thor is being the god of thunder and the next minute he is able to be subdued by a net while thugs kick the crap out of him,its plain stupid.Nearly everything that happens in the movie has an attempt at dumb juvenile comedy imposed on it.What a disappointment.

3D Blu-Ray great, Disney awful
It's a shame that Disney appears to have completely discontinued support for 3D blu-rays in the US (The Last Jedi didn't get a domestic 3D either, so that pretty much makes it official I suppose).
That being said, if you do have a 3D capable system at home this is a great presentation. Thor Ragnarok features IMax switching aspect ratios, where many high impact scenes open up to fill more of the screen - a really great enhancement to the 3D effect. My 5 star review is for the superb 3D blu-ray, Disney gets 0 stars for skipping a domestic release.

As for the inflated pricing, these are imported discs being sold by third parties so that's what happens when a studio bails on a major market and creates a demand vacuum...
The good news is that (so far) Disney's 3D blu-rays released in the UK have been region free, so if you don't mind waiting a bit for the overseas shipping, don't hesitate to grab this from Amazon UK. Well worth the wait if you're a 3D fan!

Best 3D on Region Free Disc
Verified purchase
This is a Region Free Blu-ray 3D disc. And the 3D is one of the best 3D home presentations that has been out there. The film is terrific. Best of the three Thor movies. The comedy and music in this is brilliant. The visuals just pop out at you. The film also goes from letterbox to full screen when certain scenes were shot in the IMAX format. Get this 3D disc if you can. It's a shame that the U.S. have abandoned the 3D format for most of the films out there. Thank you Amazon for having this on sale for us 3D enthusiasts!!!! One thing though...myself and some other buyers did not receive a slipcover. No biggie to me but beware if you do. Really great 3D!!!!!!

Thor- Ragnarok is a blast; exciting and funny- highly recommended!

This film provides the most fun I’ve had watching a movie in quite some time. Superhero flicks of late have taken a dark turn (starting with the “Dark Knight”) and really have been taking themselves too seriously. There’s been some humor to be had in more recent fare such as “Wonder Woman” and the even lighter “Spiderman: Homecoming” but nothing like what we get in “Thor- Ragnarok”. Hardcore fans may feel the jocular tone is an insult to the characters but somehow it feels right in this case.

We find Thor (Chris Hemsworth) suspended in a cage in some hellish cave speaking to someone catching us up on his present predicament. Turns out the ‘someone’ is the skeleton of some previous prisoner in the same cage, hardly reassuring. What follows however is an almost non-stop action/adventure tale with continuous laughs that I thoroughly enjoyed. Asgard is in trouble, Odin’s dead, Thor’s estranged sister Hela (Cate Blanchett) the goddess of death has come to claim the throne and she’s a force to be reckoned with. Thor escapes his cage only to return home to find half-brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) masquerading as Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and enjoying life but is soon on the run from his power hungry and formidable sister. He ends up captured again by an entertainment impresario of sorts; The Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum) who stages gladiatorial combat for the masses (like WWE on a more primitive and lethal scale). His champion fighter is none other than the MIA Hulk/Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) and the two have a rocky reunion. We also have on hand Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson, a long way from her ‘Veronica Mars’ days) as a reluctant ally. There’s a bunch of ‘other realm’ and Asgardian mumbo jumbo but it all works if you just relax and let the story carry you along.

Awesome battle sequences and a rocking soundtrack make this the best of the Thor trilogy. So, if you want a break from some of the doom and gloom that often drags down this genre then “Thor- Rangarok” is definitely for you.

Misleading Amazon Bonus Features
Verified purchase
The movie is great. This review is how Amazon handles it's "bonus features." Unlike Itunes, which incorporates a menu system, Amazon throws them all in at the end, making you have to "fast forward" through them. There's also no audio commentary. For a company like Amazon to have such a lazy interface is a real disappointment.

One of the Best Movies in the MCU!
Verified purchase
This is the BEST of the Thor movies. It's got action and humor and has a slick look and a pretty keen soundtrack. Performances are spot on. I highly recommend it and would be a welcome addition to your MCU movie collection. Enjoy.

Ragnarok was the destruction of Asgard as the movie wipes out the old & brings in the new
Verified purchase
Thor Ragnorak borrowed heavily from Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man being a comedy action flick. Taika Waititi also did a fantastic job as the director. Ragnorak came from Norse mythology and was based upon a huge battle that would wipe away Asgard and the gods and lead to a new world. That’s what the movie focused upon saying goodbye to the old and introducing something new.

The comedic tone of the movie was set in the opening scene. Thor is in a cage talking to a skeleton about what a hero he’s been. Then he faces Surtur who is supposed to initiate Ragnarok. He tries to listen to Surtur’s spiel about how he is going to end Asgard, but Thor is spinning around on a chain and tells Surtur to wait until he’s come back around and can look at the demon. Once he’s got all the information about Ragnarok Thor decapitates Surtur to try to stop the apocalypse. That’s accompanied by Led Zepplin’s “Immigrant Song.” and a big fight. That’s what the entire film will be like.

The theme of the old and the new are played out throughout the film. There’s the disappearance of Odin, the appearance of his long lost daughter Hela the Goddess of Death (Cate Blanchett) who wants to assume the throne in Asgard, Thor getting his hammer destroyed, the introduction of Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson), and re-uniting with Hulk/Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo). These are all brought together in the end with Sutur showing up again. Those pose the questions of whether Hela can rule Asgard or will it be destroyed in Ragnorak?

Stand out moments are the acting by Blanchett who plays Hela to the hilt. Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster is constantly hilarious. Also to the set designers who introduced a lot of patterns and colors when Thor travels to the planet Sakaar inspired by Marvel’s greatest artist and co-creator Jack Kirby. Finally, the entire time Thor is on Sakaar is hilarious.

Thor Ragnorak really re-set the entire character. The first Thor was a good mix of action with a little comedy thrown in as well. Thor Dark World was a bit of a disappointment. Ragnorak was a smash and took the laughs to a new level.
