Blu-ray Review: Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok (4K Ultra HD)
  |  @   |  

Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok
4K Ultra HD | Blu-ray | DVD | Digital
Director: Taika Waititi
Screenwriter: Eric Pearson, Craig Kyle, Christopher Yost
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 130 Minutes
Release Date: March 6, 2018

Thor: Ragnarok was my favorite of the three MCU films that came out last year and I think it’s one of the better MCU films ever. Where the first two Thor films didn’t fully connect with audiences, Ragnarok gives a full tonal shift combining the established characters with a new sense of fun and spirit. This shift is due mostly to new director Taika Waititi (What We Do In The Shadows). Everything feels different for the better in Thor’s third solo adventure with the colors brighter, the dialogue quippier, characters more memorable, and scenery more extravagant. Chris Hemsworth plays Thor, the God of Thunder, for the fifth time, this time against his older and stronger sister, the previously banished Hela (Cate Blanchett). While the movie made over $300 million in the U.S., if you missed it, the new 4K Ultra HD/Blu-Ray combo pack is available now!

Digital Review: Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok
  |  @   |  

Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok
Blu-ray | Digital
Director: Taika Waititi
Screenwriter: Eric Pearson, Craig Kyle, Christopher Yost
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba, Jeff Goldblum, Tessa Thompson, Karl Urban, Mark Ruffalo, Anthony Hopkins
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 130 Minutes
Digital Release date: February 20, 2018
Blu-ray Release Date: March 6, 2018

Despite some of the tonal inconsistencies the Thor franchise has had in the past, Thor: Ragnarok feels like the defining Thor film. Chris Hemsworth returns to reprise his role as the title character he has played since 2011, and the third installment features a brand new first: the addition of a fellow Avenger, the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Director Taika Waititi takes the title character in the direction the franchise should have followed since the very beginning. By embracing the comedic potential and letting Waititi tell the story that he wants, turning Thor: Ragnarok into a hilarious action-filled adventure. While Ragnarok will hit store shelves on March 6, 2018, the digital version has been available since late February.

Along with the film, this home release is chock full of bonus features — the cover Thor, the first ten years of Marvel, Valkyrie and Hela, the source material that inspired the film, and of course, the return of Darryl.
