Our THOR RAGNAROK Review is here! 

Thor: Ragnarok is the best reviewed comic book movie of 2017 so far and is just the best comic book movie of the year period.  Director Taika Waititi takes one of Marvel's weaker properties (movie wise) and delivers a hit with Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson and Mark Ruffalo. The movie does a great job of balancing the humor with real stakes. Hela is a great villain and kills A LOT of people. Tessa Tompson is amazing as Valkyrie and talking Hulk is everything people have been waiting for.

Listen to our full non-spoiler review to find out why we like this movie so much.

Thor: Ragnarok drops this week and so it's time to wrap up our Thor Character Corner with part 2. First we quickly cover what happened when we last left Thor during part 1. Ragnarok happened and Thor and the rest of Asgard died. And Thor stayed dead for a while. When the road to Civil War started, Thor was still gone but Mjolnir makes an appearance, falling to Earth as the Gods died, tearing a hole that allows Doctor Doom to escape Hell. After a brief attempt by Doom to take the hammer for himself, we then get Tony Stark's bad idea to make a Thor clone that...has disastrous results.   

Finally Thor returns. We focus on two writers this episode that really encapsulate Thor's return and that's J. Michael Straczynski (JMS) and current Thor writer Jason Aaron. JMS and Aaron really lean into the idea of Thor and the rest of Asgard being Gods. In a way, Thor is written much like Jesus is from the Bible and there are a lot of great stories. Asgard is reformed above Broxton, Oklahoma and while it seems like this could be a repeat of what happened the last time Thor & Asgard floated above earth, this time is vastly different. 

JMS and Jason Aaron really call into question not only what it means to be a God and if mortals still need Gods.

You'll want to listen to our full Character Corner as we follow the journey of Thor (Odinson) to Thor (Jane Foster).

Kriss and Dpalm are back to review the latest episode of Inhumans, The Gentleman's Name is Gorgon. There's no reason to beat around the bush, Inhumans is clearly limping it's way to the finale of this first (and probably only) season. There is more Crystal in this episode and we get to see her use her powers a little bit more (kinda) but Isabelle Cornish really is struggling with her acting with the character. The rest of the episode isn't necessarily bad but it does feel like the show is cutting corners because of the condensed season and the pacing and story telling are suffering. Maximus dealing with Tibor's betrayal should have been a more interesting plot but instead it just feels cheap and unearned. With only two more episodes left can Inhumans right the ship and stick the landing? We'll see. Listen to get our full review.

Kriss and Dpalm are back this week to review Arrow season 6 episode 3, Next of Kin. Arrow shocked us both by actually doing what we hoped the Flash would do with Kid Flash and is actually letting Diggle put on the hood and lead the team as the Green Arrow. This is a pretty significant shift for a show and while Diggle does have some struggles and they're clearly going with a storyline to get Oliver back, it works out pretty well. Listen for our full review of how Diggle does on his first episode as Star City's vigilante.
 
A rogue black ops team led by Onyx breaks into Kord Industries and steals something lethal. Oliver struggles to connect with William so he reaches out to a surprising source for help.

Kriss and Dpalm are back to review season 3 episode 3 of Legends of Tomorrow, Zari. We meet the new member of the crew, Zari and with that this season starts to feel like a better version of season 1. We have two crew members that are tied through elements of the past (Zari and Amaya) and have a connection to the villain. We're way more confident that they'll pull this off this season than the first though. Mick Rory is the MVP of this episode. He has some great one liners and reactions to situations. Sara loses (scaring us all), Nate gets high and Gary fucks up. Listen to our full review to hear us discuss it all.

We're back with another review/discussion about The Flash. This season has done a really good job of resetting the show to be more fun while still having serious moments. Hazard turned out to be a pretty formidable foe. We also got to see more of The Thinker's involvement with the new Metas which has a Wells Season 1 feel to it but still fresh. There will probably be some disappointment with the treatment of Wally and while valid, we make a pretty good point as to why it's not that bad.
