I haven't been to a Thursday release in ages, but this one felt etymologically appropriate.
Also, BlizzCon fell on the following day. It made sense to get "Ragnarok" out of the way ahead of that.
I will say this. The absence of Kat Dennings was not thoroughly unnoticeable. There was always a part of me that thought that she and Loki would make a cute couple. Oh, well. If one has to choose between her and Jeff Goldblum, there's really no wrong move. Actually, he and Loki would make a cute couple too. But maybe throw in Kat Dennings too. Because why not?
But yeah. A fine film. It follows in the grand tradition of swaggering gladiatorial adventures featuring jovial thunder gods.
I love that tradition.
Thor and Loki versus Raiden and Shao Kahn! Battle of brotherly bonds!
Thor and Loki have had their issues, but there is some love in that mess. I'm not so sure about the other pair. Got to give it to the Asgardians. And one of them is even adopted! Bonus point for bloodless love.
